J. Warner Wallace, pastor and homicide detective, talking about former atheist Ayn Rand, proof, and evidence on the Please Convince Me Podcast.

Key Point: Sufficient Evidence – when the evidence is sufficient, a point is proven to an individual.  But depending on ones reason, emotions, or will, it may be that no amount of evidence will be able to prove Christianity to a person.

What is the evidence that the bible is God’s Word?

  1. If Jesus was God, what Jesus said would be true because God cannot lie.
  2. Jesus claimed to be God and proved it by the resurrection.
  3. Jesus quoted extensively from the Old Testament as God’s Word.
  4. The New Testament was written by men who believed they were writing scripture (ex., 2 Peter 3:15-16).
  5. Most of these men died for their beliefs. A deceived person may die for a lie but a lair does not die for their own lie when they could stop or recant and live.
  6. Therefore, the testimony of the New Testament writers about Jesus is trustworthy. They were writing what God inspired them to – God’s Word.
