Many people think the Bible is corrupt. The Holy Bible is a book that has been translated into many different languages from the original languages of Hebrew and Greek. All the translations of the Bible say the same things no matter what language you read it in. God protected His Word. He gave it to His prophets many years ago. He did this so that we can have the Word here today. The Holy Bible is not corrupt. The Holy Bible is the Word of God and it has been protected by God for thousands of years. It has never changed because God does not change and God always protects His Word.

The Holy Bible has the teachings from God

The Bible is not an ordinary book. The Bible is book that was written by men as God moved in their minds and told them what to write. Sometimes they saw dreams or visions, and sometimes God spoke to the directly. “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

The Bible is the truth

Jesus talks about the Bible and tells people that the Bible is the truth and that the Bible is not corrupt. He said: “Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.” (John 17:17)

The Bible is powerful

The Bible has much power because it was written by God and contains truth and knowledge. “For the word of God is alive and powerful.” (Hebrews 4:12).

The Bible is light

The Bible gives light to our minds so that we can understand things about God. God has told us His truth in the Bible so that our minds and hearts can be filled with light: “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105).

“The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.” (Psalm 119:130).

The Bible makes us wise

We need God to teach us and to tell us how to think and what to do. Without the Word of God we would be lost and confused. God gave us His Word in the Bible so that we could learn about Him and become wise in the way we live and in the way we think. “The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.” (Psalm 19:7).

Timothy was a young man who listened to the words in the Bible and became wise. “You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3:15).

The Words in the Holy Bible will last forever

“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8). The Bible is a book that was written thousands of years ago. It has never changed and it is not corrupt. God have His Word to the prophets many years ago and has protected it so that we can read it and listen to it today and learn about God.

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35).

The Bible is not corrupt

The Bible is pure and clean and has never been changed. So God told the prophets to write down the words that are in the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God. The Bible is true. The Bible says: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” (1 Peter 1:23).

Don’t be fooled

Don’t let other people fool you and make you think that the Bible has been corrupted. God has protected His Word so that we can all learn about Him. The Bible also teaches us how to live a Holy life. There are many people who say the Bible is corrupt. They hear things and then repeat them, but they do not know the truth because they have never read the Bible for themselves.

So don’t be fooled by what other people say. Don’t believe what other people say about the Bible if they have never read it. You have to read the Bible to know what it says. If you listen and read the Bible you will hear the truth and the truth will set you free. Many people lie about what is in the Bible. If you want to know what is in the Bible you need to read it.

“Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32).

Don’t be a false witness

Don’t lie and tell other people that the Bible is corrupt. God says in His Word: “You must not pass along false rumors. You must not cooperate with evil people by lying on the witness stand.” (Exodus 23:1).

If you tell other people that the Bible is corrupt, or if you think the Bible is corrupt, then you are spreading lies. God does not want you to lie. You cannot believe everything that everyone else says. You have to look for yourself if the thing they are saying is true or not.

And Jesus said: “The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (John 6:63).

God wants us to know the truth so God protected the Words that Jesus spoke and they are written in the Bible and they have never changed. God’s prophets recorded and wrote down for us everything that God and Jesus said.

Jesus said: “Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.” (Matthew 24:35).
