Bible based faith is easily shaken
There are many things in the Bible that are impossible to explain. There are many questions about the Bible and that is why many have set out to prove the Bible as being the word of God. The also call the Bible the inerrant Word of God, which is not true.
The Bible testifies about God but there are many things that we cannot explain about the Bible. There are many things that we cannot explain about God because you cannot define God. People who believe and call themselves Christians based on the Bible can easily be shaken but those who have encountered Jesus Christ and who have come to know Him are not shaken, because their faith is not based on a book, it is not based on what other people wrote, it is based on their experience with Jesus Christ.
If you read the gospel of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible, the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and you believe in Him and you take those words seriously and you go on your knees and you bow down before Jesus Jesus Christ and repent of your sin and plead His forgiveness, then something wonderful happens, you are changed inside. Jesus Christ promised His Holy Spirit in those who believe in Him and who accept Him and who obey Him. If you believe in Jesus Christ and repent or your sin, accept Him as your Lord and your Master and if you are baptized in water as He commanded then He promised his Holy Spirit in you, streams of living water that will flow through you, the presence of Jesus Christ, the Spirit of Christ IN you and then you will know that He is real . If you go after Him, He will teach you and He will guide you. He will put His wisdom in you, the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, that will guide you into all truth and He will reveal things to you, He will give you knowledge and understanding of all things and you will BELIEVE, not based on what you read in the Bible but based on your RELATIONSHIP with the Living God, with His Spirit dwelling in you.
If your faith is based on the Bible you can easily be shaken but if your faith is based on your experience and your relationship with Jesus Christ, that He is REAL and ALIVE to you, then you cannot be shaken.
Do you KNOW Jesus Christ for REAL? Have you received His Holy Spirit? Do you have a TESTIMONY of your daily relationship, your walk wit Jesus Christ? Is your faith in Jesus Christ FIRM or can you be shaken?
May Jesus bless you.
