“Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.” – Luke 1:1-4 (NIV)
I believe the accounts of the Bible.
I believe its claims.
I believe the arguments defending it based on archaeological and historical evidences.
I believe it because it makes sense on how I should live my life.
I believe it because it answers my life questions. It shows me the purpose for which I am here.
It gives me peace, hope, assurance.
It teaches me love, compassion and forgiveness to those whom, like me, Christ died for.
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you may also have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” – I John 1:1-3 (NIV)
