Beyond the Light Years

... It has been truthfully said that the Scriptures are an anvil which has worn out many a hammer. “The Bible is a book which has been refuted, demolished, overthrown, and exploded more times than any other book you ever heard of....Every little while somebody starts up and upsets this book; and it is like upsetting a solid cube of granite. It is just as big one way as the other; and when you have upset it, it is right side up, and when you overturn it again, it is right side up still....For a book that has been exploded so many times, this book still shows considerable signs of life.” Will The Old Book Stand?, pp. 11,12. The Bible “tells us where we are today in the procession of the ages, and what may be expected in time to come. All that prophecy has foretold as coming to pass, until the present time, has been traced on the pages of history, and we may be assured that all which is yet to come will be fulfilled in its order.” Education, p. 178. Amid the constantly changing theories, speculations, and human opinions, the Bible alone knows no change. Like its divine Author, it is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
“All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:....BUT THE WORD OF OUR GOD SHALL STAND FOREVER.”
Isaiah 40:6,8.
