Conversation Starters: Bible Validity
Posted on March 19, 2014 by Karah
The Bible is the Word of God. Trusting what it says is critical for faith and life. While there are those who argue it is a flawed document, the Bible continually shows us its trustworthiness and reliability. Beyond strong historical and archeological evidence, the Bible speaks of its own reliability and truthfulness and we can trust it in all matters.
Concept: Bible validity
LIFE POINT: The Bible is God’s Word.
Who told Jeremiah to write the scroll?
What did the king do when he heard the words on the scroll?
LIVE IT OUT: Help your child think of her favorite books. If the Bible is not on the list, suggest that it be added. Once it is on the list, talk about things that make the Bible the most wonderful book that has ever been written.
LIFE POINT: The Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
What did Jeremiah tell Baruch to write on the scroll?
Why did the king get angry about what the scroll said?
Who told Jeremiah what to write on the scroll?
LIVE IT OUT: Ask your child to get his Bible. Challenge him to write inside his Bible what he believes makes the Bible the most wonderful book ever written. Pray with him, thanking God for the Bible.
THE POINT: You can trust God’s Word as the foundation for your life.
How has the Bible helped you in your faith and life?
If you’re not consistently reading the Bible right now, what will help you do so?
Have a conversation around this quote:
“There’s no better book with which to defend the Bible than the Bible itself.”1 —Dwight L. Moody
LIVE IT OUT: Help your student with accountability and encourage her to read the Bible regularly.
