CAN WHAT PEOPLE WRITE BE TRUSTED? After All Humans Are More Likely To Write A Version Of Events That Is Skewed Towards Their Perception Of Life. Historians are well known for reconstructing events to suit the narrative they seek to promote rather than acknowledging that the raw facts are really inconclusive, in many instances, and do not accurately reveal the intentions of the people at the time.

How do you know what is written is true at all?
Please avoid using technical religious terms.
Many are the theories constructed by people who do not accept the Bible’s own testimony.

The Bible’s own testimony is that the Ten Commandments were written by God Himself (Exodus 34:1). Moses wrote whatever else God told him to write (Exodus 24:4). Moses also recorded everything else up until he died (Numbers 33:2). Joshua contributed to the book of the Law (Joshua 24:26). Samuel also recorded certain matters (1 Samuel 10:25). Jeremiah’s assistant recorded his words (Jeremiah 36:4). Isaiah is accredited with chronicling events more than just writing the book of Isaiah (2 Chronicles 26:22). Daniel recorded what he dreamed (Daniel 7:1). Hosea wrote certain things (Hosea 8:12). King David apparently wrote seventy-three of the psalms. In all, some thirty-five authors are accredited with writing the Bible, other than God Himself (Authors who wrote the Bible).

For anybody to accept what is written in the Bible as true, they have to find sufficient evidence that will convince them that this is the case. Those who dismiss the Bible, do so from the assumption that it is not true, and then, in their ignorance, proclaim their opinions as scientific fact. This is a common method of operation among pseudo-scientists—particularly evident in the metaphysical claims that are made regarding how life came about by chance—who are only believed by the gullible.

Numerous archaeologists who have honestly sought to disprove the Bible as a factual document have had to change their opinion and acknowledge the fact, that as a historical record, the Bible is accurate. To quote an essay: Does Archaeology Support the Bible? A Look at the Evidence:
The mountainous collection of artifacts show indisputable evidence that the Bible is true and what was recorded actually happened in the places and times that the Bible states that they did.
For myself, only after I had an experience where I met the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ and received the assurance of this meeting within my being—an assurance that has never left, regardless of what I have done since—the Bible began to make sense.
Within the pages of the Bible, not have I only discovered how people grow in their relationship with God, after having encountered Him through the only mediator between man and our Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, I have also learned much about the purpose of existence, why the world is possessed of evil, and how accurate the prophecies within its pages are. Also I have come to understand many things that most people misinterpret and why there are so many false interpretations of what is written in the Bible.

The reason I accept that the Bible is reliable has to do with experience, initially, but now also because of prophetic and historical evidence. The mere fact that the nation Israel exists against all odds is a witness to the prophetic accuracy of the Bible. To deny this is the same as denying that the sky is blue when a person looks up on a sunny day, or there are no stars in the night when the sky is clear.

Some People Talk About Theory, Others Speak From Experience And Possess Truth
