Mike Gendron, Proclaiming the Gospel: Why Should We Believe The Bible?


Why Should We Believe the Bible?

Not too long ago this question was only being asked by non-Christians. Today, the question is also being asked by professing Christians who are caught up in postmodernism. They say the Bible cannot be the objective truth because truth is subjective. Everyone is entitled to their own truth. Skeptics say truth can no longer be known with certainty. How would you respond to these assertions? Or how would you respond to someone who chooses to believe their religious teachings instead of the Bible?

If there is evidence that the Bible is indeed God’s inspired, inerrant Word, then we have a book that we can trust – a book that can guide us through life and prepare us for eternity. Let us consider reasons why the Bible is the most unique book ever written and why we can trust it with absolute assurance!

Its Divine Origin

“All Scripture is inspired by God.” The human authors spoke from God as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21). No other religious book makes this claim.

Its Prophecy of Future Events

When the Bible was written, 30% of it predicted future events concerning the Messiah, Israel, other nations and cities. Currently 2000 of these 2500 prophecies have been fulfilled with precise accuracy. This is clear evidence that the Bible was inspired by a sovereign God who controls all things and knows the end from the beginning. The true God gave us prophecy so that we may know and believe Him. Before Him no god was formed, nor will there be one after Him. Apart from Him there is no Savior (Isaiah 43:8-11). No other religious book dares to predict the future because their gods cannot control future events.

Its Unity and Harmony

God commissioned 40 different authors from all walks of life, over 1,500 years, on 3 continents, to write the 66 books of the Bible. All of them were united in harmony to reveal a complex drama about God’s redemption of man through the atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Its Transforming Influence and Popularity

The Bible is the most circulated book in history and no other book has impacted society and culture so dramatically. Countless lives have been radically changed by the power of God’s Word.

Its Reliability of Transmission

Entire manuscripts of Isaiah, Deuteronomy and Psalms that were copied over 2000 years ago were found in a cave near the Dead Sea in 1948. They matched almost perfectly the copies we have today.

Its Indestructibility

The Bible has withstood intense scrutiny by thousands of skeptics and survived continuous attacks by emperors, kings, and dictators. They all failed in their attempts to destroy its message.

Its Glorious Message of Salvation

God’s only way of salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 11:6). The eternal, sinless Son of God became man to die as a substitute to satisfy divine justice for condemned sinners (Rom. 3:21-26). His resurrection from the dead assures eternal life to all who repent and believe His Gospel. All other religious books declare man must merit salvation through good works and religious rituals.

Its Historical and Geographical Accuracy

Archeologists continue to unearth evidence of ancient people, places, and cultures described in the Bible. Many of the Bible’s claims are supported by verifiable evidence. Other religious books have no artifacts to support their claims.

Its Scientific Accuracy

Modern technology continues to unfold the mysteries of the universe that were recorded in the Bible thousands of years ago. God not only created the universe and set in motion the laws that govern it. He also inspired the writers to record these fascinating mysteries.

Its Brutally Honest Accounts of its Heroes
The Bible reveals Moses, the lawgiver, was a murderer; David, Israel’s most beloved king, was an adulterer and conspired to have the husband killed; Paul was the worst of sinners; and Peter was a betrayer of the Lord Jesus.
No other religious book reveals the mind of God, the nature of man, the only way of salvation, the judgment of sinners, the blessings of believers and the foretelling of future events. The Bible is the only infallible source for truth that we have on this earth. The uninspired words of every man’s teaching must be tested using the inspired Word of God. We need the truth of the Bible in these days of great deception and declining discernment. Don’t let anyone tell you the Bible has no authority. The Bible is absolute truth for all people for all time and eternity. Let us encourage everyone to build their faith on the solid foundation of God’s Word.
Southern Baptists Host Ecumenical Meeting
First Baptist Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a Southern Baptist congregation, hosted an ecumenical conference with Roman Catholics last month. The theme of the conference was to bury the distinctions between biblical Christianity and false churches, particularly the Roman Catholic Church and the New Apostolic Reformation. Read more here.

Letters to Edify and Encourage the Saints
Mr. Gendron, You are pathetic and laughable. You are guided by your intellect not by the Holy Spirit. I am a born again Catholic educated in a 400 year old Catholic university in Manila. I am a staunch, cradle, charismatic Catholic and experienced an epiphany in 1987 when I was in my mid 30’s. Ask God to show you all your blasphemies so you can repent for them for your enlightenment. I do not need your reply. God forgive your ignorance of the Catholic Church. C.C., Philippines
Padre Pio was a very holy man. It is so sad the way Mike Gendron is trying to divide Catholic and Protestant Christians with his blog. The devil’s tactic is to divide and conquer. Mike has fallen into his hands with the same tactic. All of us Christians need to support each other and stick together in today’s pagan world. Tina, Internet
Tina, Are you not aware that it is the Lord Jesus and His Gospel that divides fathers from sons and mothers from daughters (Mat. 10:34-36)? Paul also declared that the truth of the Gospel divides believers and unbelievers, righteousness and lawlessness, light and darkness, and Christ and Satan (2 Cor. 6:14-18). It is the devil who seeks to unite the world into a global religion. I hope you agree that divine division in truth is far better than satanic unity in error. If you are a true born again Christian, the Spirit of truth will lead you out of your apostate religion that is under divine condemnation for distorting the Gospel (Gal. 1:6-9).
Hi Mike, I’ve just watched a few of your videos and I’m amazed! I have known the Catholic Church is evil for a long time but I’ve never heard anyone else say it the way you do with such conviction, and brutal yet kind honesty. Thank you so so much for your insight and wisdom and calm, reassuring voice. I was brought up a strict Catholic and terrified of going to hell by nuns and the local pedophile priest. Why aren’t there more people like you speaking out? Wow – what important work you do, You’ve changed my life. Now I have a job to do. I can bear witness, I can spread the word. Eden
Hey Mike, Firstly praise God for the work that He continues to do through Proclaiming the Gospel. I live in Dubai and come from a Catholic family too. About 6 months ago, I told my parents that I can’t be a Catholic anymore, which has been tough with the backlash but I continue to persevere with joy. I was reaching out because there is a large Catholic following here and I want to learn how I can reach them. I would love to chat with you over Zoom sometime. R.K., Dubai, UAE
Mike, I’m not sure how you think you’re fighting Catholicism when you don’t even understand Catholicism. You claim Peter wasn’t infallible because Paul had to reprimand him. That has nothing to do with infallibility. How can you have been a devout Catholic and not know that? A.G., Internet
A.G., The only infallible, objective source for truth that we have on this earth since our Lord Jesus ascended into heaven is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. I plead with you to read it and use it to test the veracity of every tradition and teaching of men (Acts 17:11).
Mike, Prior to reading your book, Preparing for Eternity, and watching your YouTube videos, I was witnessing to my Catholic family my way not God’s way. Now I’ve changed course and I am letting God handle this by declaring the supreme authority of His Word as I share the all-sufficient work of the Lord Jesus. M.H., Dallas, GA
Pope Says Proselytizing Is a Pagan Practice
In his weekly audience, Pope Francis said that convincing someone from another religion to become Christian is a “pagan” practice. He said, “To proselytize is something pagan, it is neither religious nor evangelical.” The pope said that “the church does not proselytize, but rather she grows by ‘attraction’ to the beauty of God’s love.” Read more.
Mike’s Comment: If anyone is still not convinced that Pope Francis has the spirit of anitchrist, I don’t know what else you need. He has blasphemed the Lord Jesus Christ in so many ways and now he calls the Lord’s great commission a pagan practice!
