For the same reason people take Harry Potter as proof that Hogwarts exists, and some people believe that the Matrix is real after seeing the movie. The human mind reaches for a way to make sense of humanities insignificance in the grand scheme. Any proof is good enough to justify it, when you can offer up faith as the reason there isn't more proof.
2nd Timothy 3:16-17 says it is inspired by God. Written by over 40 authors over 1600 years. It was the first book to be printed on the printing press in 1455. We still have over 5300 Greek manuscripts from the New Testament. The Dead Sea Scrolls found in 1947 Have copies of the oldest portions in the Old Testament. They are 95% accurate. Mostly : no one has ever been able to destroy it & Hitler tried with all his might but failed.
That the Bible originated in the mind of God makes it not only unique among all books, it is unique among all the treasures on earth. President Abraham Lincoln appropriately referred to the Bible as "the best gift God has given to man." Indeed it is. It reveals God's eternal plan of redeeming the fallen human race. Many religious texts claim to convey a divine message. The Bible, however, stands alone in that God left absolutely no room for doubt as to whether or not this is His written Word. If anyone undertakes an honest effort to examine the facts, he will find the Bible most assuredly has God's signature all through it. The very same mouth that spoke all of creation into existence also gave us the Bible. . 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
There is no proof of his non-existence. The Bible points to several proofs, including the stars of the heavens, fulfilled prophecy, and the miracles of the Exodus. However, they are not proof but logical indications; the facts do not speak for themselves, as faith in God first starts only with someone who believes that God exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. By way of analogy, you can only get to New York if you first believe it exists, and can be visited by someone who wishes to visit.
If you don't believe the Bible is Gods word, then after you die and it's too late, you will realize that you have made a terrible mistake. Look around you. Can you not see that surely there is a higher power. Look at life itself. Do you think it just happened? There are too many things that tell us there is a God and the Bible is his work. Eternity is never ending and Hell is a place of torment where the lost soul will be in eternal damnation if you are not born again like Jesus said. Be honest with yourself, find a old fashioned God fearing Preacher that is interested on your soul and not your money and he will guide and help you to pray through to genuine salvation. Then you will know for yourself that the Bible is surely TRUE and is surely GODs word. God Bless you.
Wishful thinking, faith, that is. The Bible is all they've got, despite its contradictions and obvious manipulations. The circular logic of God is real because the Bible says so, and the Bible is true because God says so, is just insulting to anyone capable of objective intelligence. But in this free society, let the weak, the downtrodden, and the fearful have their crutch and be well.
As a Deist in my own right, I believe; If it is not revealed to me, it is just heresay. I have a right to disbelieve things that are claimed to have happened thousands of years ago based on the word of one person who then tells another and so forth. There is no proof, credibility or reason. All of these man made religions all disbelieve each other and I have the right to disbelieve them all. I am not an atheist because I do believe in God: The Intelligent Designer of the Universe, who is located outside this Universe.
I just wrote on a piece of paper that everything I write us 100% correct do therefore no one ever needs to question anything I say or write. See how simple that is, the bible says its from god and us correct, therefore it is? sheesh. The reason people accept the bible as true and accurate us because of a couple 1000 years if people being told that at the point if a sword. And they grew up with the resulting influence.
There is no proof and can be no proof of the existence of "God". Therefore those people who need to believe wave the Bible about and say, "This is his word. This proves he is real."
In a work of fiction -- especially sci-fi or fantasy -- the writer and reader enter into an agreement by which the reader suspends his disbelief for the duration of the book and the writer tries to keep within the parameters he has set himself. The Bible is such a hodge podge of fantasy and contradiction that no reader can be expected to suspend his disbelief far enough to believe it.
