Let’s Not Mistake the Bible for Truth

“The Bible says…” “We must obey God’s Word.”

That kind of talk can open the door to an inspiration or it can set a trap for the mind to conclude the Bible is the truth.

The Bible is a book of books. It is a physical unit loaded with human words. The words have been reconfigured into many languages to keep it alive. Worries are expressed that some Bible versions are incorrect, untruthful.

However the Bible is not truth itself because truth is a metaphysical configuration.

Despite—or perhaps partially because of—not letting this fact get in the way of a good story, Bibles can be read in many of the world’s languages. As readers, we have the ability to know what’s real and what isn’t.

A few Bible facts from Statistic Brain:

Number of total Bibles Printed 6,001,500,000
Approximate number of languages spoken in the world today 6,900
Number of translations into new languages currently in progress 1,300
Number of languages with a translation of the New Testament 1,185
