83 For Truth

Can You Trust the Bible?


Many people assume they can’t. They’ve been told that the Bible is an ancient collection of myths. They don’t even consider that it might be historically correct or have some value to offer them.

Most of these people have never picked up a Bible and read it for themselves. They accept the assumptions of the Bible critics and don’t bother checking them out.

See For Yourself

We are challenging you to investigate the Bible for yourself. Start with the Gospels at the beginning of the New Testament. Learn for yourself what Jesus taught and did. Take your time to let the message sink in. Try to imagine what a life built on such a message would be like. True love without strife, everlasting peace, gentleness with all man, goodness to our neighbor, temperance in life, and truth to live by.  Think about what the world would be like if people followed such teachings.

The rest of the New Testament builds on the Gospels. Acts tells you the story of the people who took the message seriously and went out to tell the world about it. The rest of the books of the New Testament are a collection of letters written to help people understand and to live the Gospel message.

To really understand the Bible, you also need to read the Old Testament. It contains the historical and philosophical background leading up to the New Testament. It tells you where sin came from and why. It shows you God’s moral expectations and the seriousness of a life without Him.  Compare the Old Testament prophecies of Israel and see how they are fulfilled in our modern world.

You will find, if you approach the subject honestly, that many of the criticisms you’ve read or heard don’t really hold water. Read a book like “A General Introduction to the Bible” by Geisler and Nix for scholarly answers to many of the questions you have heard about.

It IS Reliable

You may decide the Bible is reliable and its message is what you need to help you face life and eternity. Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start now and make a brand new ending.

  1. My husband and I drive truck all across America. We thankfully are Christians, and appreciate the numerous billboards you have. We also (unfortunately) have seen many car wrecks where people have gotten killed. I always wonder about those people’s eternity. Were they Christians? Did they have time to ask forgiveness and accept salvation right before they died? Or did their life ended instantly upon impact? If so, will they be in eternal hell, or spend eternity with Jesus our Savior? We all should prepare for eternity BEFORE it is too late. Thank you and may God bless.

  2. Is there a way to contribute to your ministry?

  3. I have a serious question. How can I repent if I’m not sure that I
    A. ) see my sin for what it is apart from just havimg the knowledge it’s bad
    And
    B.) Don’t have any sorrow for it, let alone godly sorrow?
    I have prayed so many times for God to change me and it can be pretty hard to ask or i guess i should say to want to change. I feel the main if not the only reason I’m like alright I’ll repent is because I don’t want to go to hell! I know He commands me to repent and I can’t do so without His help! I need Him to cause me to have godly sorrow for my sins. I feel my only option is to keep asking Him to help me until He does. Please pray for me!
    Sincerely,

    • Conviction for sin is a gift from God. I met a man one time who spurned God’s call and it went eight years before God called again. When God did reach out to him, he responded to the call. Is this happening to you? I don’t know. But I do know that God loves us and He wants us to be saved. The very fact that you see the sinfulness of your sin is evidence that He is still speaking to your heart. I would suggest that you read the Gospels, starting with Matthew, to get a glimpse of the heart of Jesus. Jesus calls us to join His kingdom. He died for you so that you could be saved. I believe that too many people “become” Christians for selfish reasons. The point of the gospel isn’t escaping hell. The point is to serve Christ and our fellowman, out of a love for both. Doing so will prepare us for heaven, but that isn’t the point of it all. I remember one time when it really struck me that my sins had added to the burden Jesus carried with Him to the cross. I felt compelled to tell Him that I was sorry for making his load heavier and harder. It’s just as if I had struck one or two the blows with the hammer that nailed Him to His cross. Think about it. Ponder it. Cry because of it.

  4. We are Jesus followers and are driving through Utah. I am so saddened by the deception here and the false doctrines. When I saw your billboards my heart leapt . I had to check out to see who put them up! Thank you for caring about lost souls.

  5. I’m a believer for a long time but not the best at being a christian. I really don’t know what is best for me to read in the bible. I thought of reading like a book from front to back but basically question my self

  6. What’s your source of income; how do you pay for billboards? How many do you have posted?

    • Some of your questions are answered at this link. GospelBillboards.org is sponsored by Christian Aid Ministries Our income comes from donations, mostly from Amish, Mennonite, and other Anabaptist groups. We have between 750 and 1500 billboards and city posters up across North America at any given time. It varies depending on available contracts and the time of year.

  7. Well am i going to hell or not?? I need answers here. I must know if I should sin tonight or not, lets get this show on the road here buddy.

    • I’m supposing you were trying to poke fun at the idea. I thought of ignoring this comment, but decided to post it anyway. I gave a tract to a young man on the street one time, entitled “Hell is No Joke”. He took it, read the title, then gave me a grin. But he kept it and I hope he read it. Because eternity is nothing to joke about. But anyone who wants to enjoy sin until the end, then get on board a train for heaven will be sadly disappointed I fear. It’s no joke, my friend. Jesus gave his life for you, and this is how you respond to Him? Think about it.
