If a person does not believe that the Bible is the Word of God personally delivered by God to all of humanity, then that person’s unbelief is a rejection of kindness, mercy and grace given by God to all of mankind. To reject that the Bible is truly the Word of God, is to undermine and discredit the existence of God himself “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God” (Mark 3:5). When a person does not believe in the existence of God, he in turn rejects the commandments of God, our creator leading them to accept the corruptible ways of this world leading to hell. We were born on this earth with sin and this is our state until we accept God’s grace which is free, unmerited, abundant and treasured in his son Jesus Christ. The Bible is and never was a fiction of man’s imagination “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
Many unbelievers need to understand the fact that although the Bible was written by Holy men, they were led by the Holy Spirit “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21). The Bible is God’s word reminding us that his truth and love can guide us through every circumstance, trial and troubles of this life. For a unbeliever the day of judgment will judge the way they lived their life on this earth ” Cursed is anyone who does not affirm and obey the terms of these instructions” (Deuteronomy 27:26). We as human cannot live our life in rebellion against God and not think about the consequences that might come along with it “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
