"We understand from the written Word of God that there is one supreme purpose which actuates God in all He has done, or will do, from the beginning of creation to the farthest reaches of eternity, whether it is in Heaven or on earth. For this one purpose angels were created; so also the material universe and man, and though hidden behind an inscrutable mystery, we know that even sin was permitted and redemption was provided with a view to the realization of this supreme purpose. This supreme purpose is the Glory of God.
Since the Bible is God's message to man, its supreme purpose is His supreme purpose; which is that He may be glorified."
- Lewis Sperry Chafer
The Bible is a supernatural book. When we take the time to examine the evidence, we will discover that the Bible is the Word of God! There is no other book in the world that can compare to the Bible in terms of accuracy and credibility.
Evidence from science indicates that the whole earth was originally covered by water. As the mountain ranges were raised, and the ocean beds were deepened, dry land appeared in the form of islands and continents surrounded by seas and oceans. The Bible made this clear thousands of years before science did.
“Then God said, ‘Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear,’ and it was so.” (GEN 1:9)
The Bible statesthat as soon as the dry land appeared, plants, grasses, shrubs, and trees also began to appear:
Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so. (GEN 1:11)
