I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I have heard atheists say that God’s Word is not infallible proof of His existence. The lost hate the Bible. Over the years, countless people have tried to destroy it. Some atheistic rulers have declared it illegal. And countless believers have been ridiculed, tortured, and even murdered for preaching what it says. If this Book were just like any other book, filled with made-up tales, then why has it always been so despised by those who do not believe it? The Bible is hated because it is true and because it condemns what this world loves—sin.
Adrian Rogers said, “I read other books, but the Bible reads me.” I would dare say I have never personally met the majority of the people who read this blog. I have no idea what your person life is like, but God does. And when I quote His Word, you cringe because His Word has just exposed you for who you really are and your conscience is now telling you that you need to get right with Him.
John 3:19 says, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” The self-righteous religious leaders of Jesus’ day hated Him because He exposed them for who they really were—sinners in need of a Savior. He was ultimately put to death on the cross for proclaiming to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
No, the Bible is not hated because it is not true; the Bible is hated because it is the ultimate truth and has the power to expose the lost for who they really are. Please, you know that you know what I am saying is true; listen to your conscience and come to Jesus before it is eternally too late for you. All you have to do is repent—turn completely from all sin—and trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you, and He will save you today and keep you saved forever.
