The Whole Truth

I grew up in a Christian home with a desire to read and study the Bible. This has not changed.

I love Yahweh and His Word. I strive to live my life for Him, with the Bible as my guide.

Yet, in my studying, I came to realize that what the Bible said and what I was taught the Bible said, was rather contradictory and confusing.

I had been told and therefore believed, that the Old Testament was not important anymore, because Christ came and died for us.

The Old Testament was just there to tell us about what had happened before Christ came. Just a history section in the Bible. There were no more sacrifices and no more law. Christ has come!

And so, whenever I wondered why the Old Testament was important enough to be part of the Bible, I pushed it aside with the reason that it was for history purposes.

Then, I wondered about the New Testament. It quotes many times from the Old Testament and talks of what happened in those times.

Also, throughout the New Testament, it tells us to keep His commandments. What commandments?

Somehow, I managed to reason that the ten commandments were still in use and that is what is meant. Plus, it tells us that love is the greatest commandment.

If there were anymore doubts in my mind, about the Old Testament laws and such, being mentioned in the New Testament, I put those verses and chapters aside as not important or true.

After all, how can so many people be wrong? It’s simply that only the New Testament, and only part of that are true, right?

But then, again, something is missing here. How do we know what is true? By what the Bible says? Which parts of the Bible?

To my innocent little mind, it was the truth, even though I couldn’t understand it.

Just last year, my family took a new step in studying the Bible.

We began learning Hebrew and Greek. We also went deep into seeking to understand the meaning behind the words of Yahweh’s Word.

Through this, we learned about our Heavenly Father’s original Hebrew name, Yahweh (YHWH). Also, we began to see that the entire Bible is true.

Verses that I had glazed over before, made sense, and the Bible became more real than ever before.

Seeing the Bible as completely true, instead of just parts of it, puts a whole new perspective…a new meaning…an importance on life, that cannot be explained.

It can be so easy to believe the things that we have been taught and never try to see if it is truly so. We are blinded by what we think is truth.

Do you believe the entire Bible is true? Why or why not? Do you truly know that what you believe is the truth?

None of us is perfect. Each one of us has lies in our lives. We need to continually seek Yahweh and His truth. For His truth is truly beautiful!!!

  2. Yes, the entire Bible is true and is the inspired word and record of God. I believed as you did, there was little current relevance as well as the โ€˜Old Testamentโ€™ God was one of anger and vengeance. Then I began to see Godโ€™s deep love for His people, Israel and especially in Isaiah, that He would someday redeem all people to Himself. The period of 3-400 years, unrecorded, between Malachi and the Gospel of Matthew interests me (Maccabean), and many people far wiser than I are currently researching and writing about this time (Angela Elwell Hunt I especially like, her recent biblical historic novels). Thank you for this post.

  3. The entire Bible both the old and the New Testament is the word of God, I am a Pastor and preach from both the Old and New Testament, yesterday I Preach on Moses on the mountain and God telling him His name, which is “I Am” (Yahweh) Don’t just depend on a Pastor in your understanding ask God, through your prayer time as well, this is why it is so important to have a relationship with Christ. Remember Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:15-20 to be careful of false teachers, wolves in sheep clothing. I always encourage all to search the scriptures themselves. Thank you for your post

  4. Yes, I believe the Bible is truth and the Word of God, through faith… but also, books like The Case for Christ, Cold-Case Christianity, and other apologetics have helped me understand more about the Bible’s infallibility. I’ve only been a Christian for about a year, but so far studying the Bible is one of my favorite things to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wonderful post, and I can’t wait to read more!

  5. I was brought up to believe the same thing! It wasn’t until I got older and started really studying the Bible that I found out the Old Testament is just as important. Not to mention the stories in there are better than most of the novels I’ve read!

  6. This is a great post! I do believe the whole Bible is true because God told the writers what to write. The words in the Bible is inspired by God! “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;” ~ 2 Timothy 3:16 Blessings to you!! ๐Ÿ’ฎ
