The Bible and "False" Prophecy

This could be the end of the Bible and Christianity.

THE HUMANIST'S CLAIM: False Prophecies in the Bible

Prophecies in the Bible further strengthen the Humanist view. Because many of the prophecies turned out to be false, they prove the Bible is not inerrant.

Free Atheist's Answers Book

The Bible itself contains a test for determining whether a prophecy was inspired by God. Deuteronomy 18:22 explains: “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”

Applying this test to the Bible leads to one conclusion: the book contains many statements that were not inspired by God.

The prophecies in the Bible provide solid proof the Bible is true and inspired by God. Only God can know the future, and accurately describe that future. If the humanists can prove that some of the prophecies in the Bible are wrong... or even just one is wrong... they have destroyed the Bible and Christianity. Why? Because what Deuteronomy 18:22 says is true. If a prophet is wrong just once, then they are not a true prophet of the Lord.

A Little About Prophecy In The Bible

There are about 1,800 prophecies in the Bible, with about 300 of those being about the Messiah. So there are plenty for the humanist to choose from.

There are three types of prophecies:

  1. Prophecies that have already been 100% fulfilled
  2. Prophecies with a near term (already fulfilled) fulfillment and a far term (not yet fulfilled) fulfillment.
  3. Prophecies that will be fulfilled in our future (end times prophecies)

Let the epic battle begin. The fate of the world hangs in the balance. If the humanists prove there is even one false prophecy in the Bible, then Christianity is not true, Jesus has not defeated death... and our future is one of corruption and death. A future of nothing... we just become worm food

But, if every prophecy is the Bible is true, then we have life. Then the Bible is true and Jesus did pay our penalty for sin in full. Our physical death is not the end. Those who are trusting in Jesus will have eternal life, living with Jesus Christ our God and Savior forever.

The humanists have an easy task. Prove that just one of the over 1,800 Bible prophecies is false. Will they be successful? Will the Bible go down in disgrace... the biggest fraud in history? Or does God reign supreme?

The Good News

Before you get the good news, you need to know the bad news. It's about you. God says:

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means disobeying God, aka breaking God's law. God is perfect and perfection is required to enter heaven. It's a standard none of us can achieve. We all fall short. For example, compare yourself with just one of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8. Or what about:

Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.' Have you done that?

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true (believe), and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
