Is the Bible true or are the stories just like fairy tales?
Here's the answer:
Since the Bible is God's Word, it is the truth.
The entire Bible is true and really happened. Many of the stories seem hard to believe because they're miracles performed by God. But God is all-powerful and never lies, so we should believe all these miracles. The Bible has been proven true. In the Bible, many prophecies (stories about what's going to happen) have already come true. Archeologists have even found ancient ruins that show us that the Bible stories really happened.
Some people don't believe the stories in the Bible. Other people just want to be stubborn and live in ways that disobey God, so they decide that the Bible isn't real. We should pray for people to trust that the Bible is true. Then, God can change their lives with the Bible. This change begins only when we believe in Jesus for eternal life.
"All your words are true. All your laws are right. They last forever" (Psalm 119:160).
"God has breathed life into all of Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right" (2 Timothy 3:16).
