What is Truth?

During the French Revolution, Voltaire did his best to castigate and destroy the Word of God and its effectiveness in peoples' lives. He even went so far as to say that within a hundred years no one would be reading the Bible.

God must have a sense of humor. After Voltaire's death, his home was being auctioned off to the highest bidder. It was purchased by the French Bible Society. In the same house where the Bible was put down, Bibles were soon running off the presses for the masses.

Today, between 30 and 60 million copies of the Bible are printed each year throughout the world. Those who read it realize it is not simply a book. It is the Word of God. While God used some forty writers over a period of 1500 years to write it down, there is only one Author - God Himself! The Bible is Truth, because God is Truth - nothing more, nothing less.

"The grass withers, the flower fades, But the Word of our God stands forever." - Isaiah 40:8
