On Christianity

By Billy Graham

This article was published May 23, 2014 at 1:51 a.m.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I don't see how any intelligent person can believe what the Bible says. The people who wrote it thousands of years ago didn't know anything about science, and anyway, it's full of contradictions. I'm sorry, but I just can't swallow the idea that it's God's Word.

-- S.C.

DEAR S.C.: I'm sorry you have this attitude toward the Bible, because it means you're cutting yourself off from the hope and peace it alone can give you. In a world of confusion and despair, where else will you look to discover life's meaning?

I can't help but wonder if you've ever actually read the Bible, or are you only going on what you've heard others say (who may never have read the Bible either). I could list a number of reasons why I believe the Bible is God's Word, but they probably wouldn't make much of an impact on you. What will make an impact on you is actually reading the Bible with an open heart and mind.

After all, if the Bible really tells us about God and how He wants us to live, then it's the most important book in the world. Don't dismiss it lightly. The Psalmist declared, "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path" (Psalm 119:105).

I suggest you begin in the New Testament with the Gospel of John. In it, you will discover not only God's written word, but the living Word, Jesus Christ -- who was God in human flesh. Don't let your pride, your desire to control your life, or anything else keep you from seeing Christ as He really is, and then committing your life to Him.
