This week’s question is from a youth pastor who recently signed up for the Leader’s List and the 1 John Bible Study. As he was taking his students through the 1 John series, he was asked by his students: How can we trust that God’s word is true, and that it is truly God’s word?
The Bible is the best-selling book in the history of the world, but in today’s culture is widely questioned as to whether or not it is authoritative for our lives. Pastor Mark explores whether the Bible is a word about God, or a word from God.
To find out more, watch this week’s video, and check out Pastor Mark’s recommended reading on the reliability of the Scriptures. You can send your questions in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
