This is a tenet of non-apostate religion, and it is called the doctrine of sufficiency: that the Bible contains all that is or ever can be necessary for the benefit of man.
Article 6 'Of the sufficiency of Holy Scriptures for salvation', from "The 39 Articles" of the Church of England, defines it:
"Holy Scripture contains all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man,that it should be believed as an article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary for salvation."
The Bible cannot contain all truth because the bibles of the religions of the world were probably written before Homo sapiens even knew how to carry out science, or even history correctly. They did not know about consistency of information, nor how truth can be known only if observation from experiment on the world is repeatable and repeatable and repeatable.
Also, many religious ideas existed already at the time. Their already-presumption of the existence of gods and miracles (without evidence) allowed either their religion-emotion or their god-fear get in the way of their objectivity. These were unconscious mechanisms impeding and prohibiting perfect truth from entering the bibles. Although this won't be a popular answer for many Christians, I have to say that the Bible does not contain "all truth," in the sense that there are many things that are true that the Bible doesn't cover. For example, the truth of the laws of physics and how they are acting to allow you to read this isn't directly covered in the Bible.
I believe two things can be said about the Bible, though, that are important. First, the Bible is all true; it's not a collection of myths or fables, although it does contain illustrative stories (parables). Second, all truth that is important to eternal life, and how to do life right here and now, is contained in the Bible, even though the "implementation details" may vary from person to person, period to period. Obviously it does not contain all truth, neither is all that is in the bible true. As a christian I believe it is dangerous to follow the bible without questioning. Accept nothing in the bible that offends your conscience or soul.
The Bible was written by people, it contains some truth and some wisdom but we cannot be certain that people have not been misquoted, or bigots have put their own words in christs mouth when making copies. The reason why e have contradictory accounts in the bible is because of this, we tolerate the lies so we do not have to lose the truths. ALL TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, It is God breathed and God does not lie. It's all true:
That the earth is flat. That the sun orbits the earth. that the earth is covered by firmament. That there are dragons and Unicorns. That diseases are caused by Demons. That we don't need Doctors; just pray and you will be healed, That there were Giants, that there was a Great Deluge. The Bible does indeed contain all truth, so that it could fulfill the following expectation:
(2 Timothy3:16-17) ". . .All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work."
That does not mean that when it quotes accounts by liars, such as Satan, Jezebel, the Pharisees, and other misrepresentatives, that it agrees with them, but it records tha actual truths of the situations involved!
The King James Bible is all truth. The Bible contains all the information that you'll need for your walk with God. Answer: Yes, the Bible contains all the Truth.
Answer: Perhaps an unarguable truth is found in Ecclesiastes 9:5: 'For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten'.
If the Bible is literally true and Ecclesiastes is a legitimate book of the Bible, this should be a troubling statement for believers.
The truth contained in the Bible is available for those who want it and seek it. It certainly though does not contain all truth that has ever been written, since there is much truth and wisdom to be found elsewhere, insofar as these do not contradict it, and in many ways and places they do not, such as for example in what some call operational science and technology which is simply the way the world works without unproven(scientifically) cosmology attached. Truth; A statement proven to be or accepted as true.
Example is Fire is Hot and Ice is cold and everybody accept this, so it is truth.
The Bible teaches about Creation by a Supernatural and have no proof. It also teaches about how different languages were created (Tower of Babel) and a Great Flood that kill all living things including unborn children, innocent babies and people of other faith (or no faith)who does not even know the god of the uneducated, uncivilized, unlettered, no commerce, superstitious Hebrew nomads.
It also teaches a Man-God Jesus whose existence is only recorded in the Bible (and nowhere else) through the delusion of Paul in one of his epilepsy (falls down) attack.
It also teaches that the Earth is flat and covered by a dome called Firmament (search encyclopedia for meaning) and outside this dome is all water.
The Bible is merely a collection of folklore, myths and anecdotes based in historical setting.
Truth is the Word of God:-
Joh 18:38 KJV [v. 38] Pilate saith unto him,What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
Joh 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. Nowhere in the KJV does the KJV say it contains all truth - so if the KJV is the source of truth you can't prove it by the KJV.
Logically, the nature and Truth of the One who is infinitely good and great can not be contained in an itty bitty book. THE HOLY BIBLE IS 100% TRUE! The Bible does not contain all the truth there possibly is: however it does contain all the knowledge for salvation that is otherwise unable to be known or discovered by human beings, and when the Bible does touch on other topics it is always right, regardless of what scientists and scholars say. NB The term 'the Bible' refers especially to the untranslated and original Greek/Hebrew/Aramaic manuscripts, not necessarily to many translations or paraphrases. Since there are no exact equivalent words to translate words, thoughts, actions, idioms, etc exactly from one language to another, and since all translators are dependent on the current state of knowledge for the accuracy of their version, it means that all translations differ to some extent (if they didn't there would be no need for another translation!) , but God's Word in its original language does not change: it is Man that changes. The Bible must be true. If the Bible is .0001% wrong, then all that we know to be true as Christians is a lie. When the people below say that the Bible doesn't cover the laws of physics, it does! When we say whatever goes up must come down, think about this. JESUS WENT UP AND HE MUST COME DOWN. How could all that we know to be true, completely forgetting religion, just have been created by and explosion. We don't know how miraculous God is. A man set out to prove the Bible wrong and in the process, he became a Christian. Christians believe God would not allow his word to be any thing but THE TRUTH
Yes the Bible is all true because many believe the Bible is the word of the one and only God.
(KJV) 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
John 21:25 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
John 16:13 "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth"
2 Peter 3:16 "... in which are some things hard to be understood ..."
Many believe that God inspired man to write the bible.
***Yes. the bible is a 100% true on EVERY word it says...things that happened( old testement) and things that are going to happen( new testement) and things that you you should and should not doa nd the way to act( new testement)... but yes its all true. the only truthfull book you will ever read in the world. and it has all types of generes-- like romance, violence, nonfiction(all) drama, songs... everything/ its amazing. :) bible is 100% truth there is so much proof. The Bible contains all truth because God is a God of truth and cannot lie.
It would also deny the Bible's inspiration. As the apostle states, "All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work." (2Ti 3:16, 17) Prov 2: 3-12 encourages everyone to SEARCH for truth recorded in Gods word ,it says" if, moreover, you call out for understanding itself and you give forth your voice for discernment itself, if you KEEP SEEKING for it as for silver, and as for hid treasures you KEEP SEARCHING for it, in that case you will understand the fear of Jehovah, and you will find the very knowledge of God. For Jehovah himself gives wisdom; out of his mouth there are knowledge and discernment. And for the upright ones he will treasure up practical wisdom; for those walking in integrity he is a shield, by observing the paths of judgment, and he will guard the very way of his loyal ones. In that case you will understand righteousness and judgment and uprightness, the entire course of what is good. When wisdom enters into your heart and knowledge itself becomes pleasant to your very soul, thinking ability itself will keep guard over you, discernment itself will safeguard you, to deliver you from the bad way, from the MAN SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS." Also Hebrews 4:12 says " For the word of God is ALIVE and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart. For the word of God to be alive and to exert power in ones life would mean theres NO room at all for half-lies or for contradictory statements, for the bible shows that it is impossible for God to lie. (Heb 6:18) 'That is why Jesus Christ said to him: "Your word is truth." (John 17:17)
The Bible is scientifically accurate. It even contains information that was far ahead of its time. For example, the book of Leviticus contained laws for ancient Israel on quarantine and hygiene when surrounding nations knew nothing about such matters. At a time when there were wrong ideas about the shape of the earth, the Bible referred to it as a circle, or sphere. (Isaiah 40:22) The Bible accurately said that the earth 'hangs on nothing.' (Job 26:7) Of course, the Bible is not a science textbook. But when it touches on scientific matters, it is accurate. Is this not what we would expect of a book from God?In the Bible he has not told us everything about the universe, but what he has had recorded there is not speculation; it is truth. He has also stated in the Bible what his purpose is for the earth and for mankind and how he will accomplish it. His almighty power, superlative wisdom, flawless justice, and great love guarantee that this purpose will be fully accomplished, and in the best possible manner. His qualities thus assure us that his statement of purpose is completely dependable; it is truth. God does not want us to grope in ignorance; he has said that his will is for us to come to an accurate knowledge of truth. (1 Tim. 2:3, 4) John 17:3 also encourages us to take in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. One way we can take in this knowledge of the only true God is to examine the scriptures thoroughly Look at bible prophecy and when those prophecies were fulfilled. Archaeology has served to confirm many historical features of the Biblical account with regard to these lands and to substantiate points once held in question by modern critics. Skepticism as regards the Tower of Babel, denials of the existence of a Babylonian king named Belshazzar and of an Assyrian king named Sargon (whose names, up until the nineteenth century C.E., were not found in sources independent of the Bible record), and other adverse criticisms as to Bible data relating to these lands have all been demonstrated to be without foundation. Contrariwise, a wealth of evidence has been unearthed that harmonizes fully with the Scriptural account. No, the Bible does not contain all truth. The Bible contains two books written by two different races of people.
The books from Genesis to Chronicles were written by God's chosen people the Israelites. The history of the Israelites took place in the Fertile Crescent. The book of Genesis speaks of God's seven days of creation, the disobedience of the first human couple, the great flood, God's promise to Abram, the marriage of Isaac, the birthright of Esau, God's promise to Yacob that his twelve sons would become twelve tribes and be his chosen people forever. The book of Exodus speaks about the deliverance of God's chosen people from slavery in Egypt and the Commandments and laws his people were to obey. The books Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy consists of further instructions and laws for the Israelites to obey. The book of Joshua speaks of the Israelites entering the promised land Canaan. The book of Judges speaks of the warriors who led the Israelites before there were Kings. The book of Samuel speaks of the prophet Samuel whom God chose to anoint Saul as the first King of the Israelites, and also of the reign of King David. The book of Psalms are prayers and songs to God. The Song of Solomon speaks of King Solomon's first marriage. The book of Proverbs speaks of King Solomon's loyalty to God. The book of Ecclesiastes speaks of King Solomon's disloyalty to God. The books of the Prophets were written at the time of the book of Kings when the Kings of the Israelites turned away from God and were subsequently exiled to Babylon. The book of Lamentations are prayers and songs by the exiled Israelites. The book of Ezekiel speaks of the future of the Israelites when God will bring his chosen people out of Babylon and back to Zion where they will never again disobey him. Finally, the book of Chronicles reviews more about the history of the Israelites. God is the Saviour of the Israelites: 'God says, "I am God, your God who led you out of Egypt. You have no God but me. I alone am your Saviour." (Hosea 13:4).
The books from Matthew to Revelation however, were written by Europeans. These books are based on the Christian religion and the end of the Roman Empire. The books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John speak about a man named Jesus who was said to be born of a virgin. He was said to be a Messiah who would die for many. The books from Acts to Jude speak of the followers of Jesus. The last book of Revelation speaks about the fall of the Roman Empire. Jesus Christ is the saviour of Christians: "This very day in David's town your Saviour was born - Christ the Lord! And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger." (Luke 2:11).
Yes, the bible is 100% true. It doesnt matter who wrote it down, it only matters that God spoke it to them, so it is 100% undoubtly true.
According to Jesus Christ in His prayer to His Father: "...THY WORD IS TRUTH." (John 17:17)
John 18:37b - "For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
For centuries, men have set out to "disprove" - even destroy - the Bible. All such attempts have been unsuccessful, and many who tried eventually emerged from their experiences as believers. By worldly reasoning alone, one strong evidence that the Bible is true is simply its continued existence! If not for its infallible, indestructible nature, Satan would either have prevented it from ever coming into being, or seen it done away with long ago. The only reason he hasn't is because he can't. (Matthew 24:35 - Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.)
As long as the world stands, this question will be debated ad infinitum. Believers will maintain the Bible is true, and detractors will reject it as a collection of "fables" and "fairy tales." The Apostle Paul foresaw this, and wrote concerning it:
Romans 3:3, 4 - For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: "That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged."
The Bible doesn't deal in "situational truth;" that is to say, it's true IF you believe it, and it isn't true if you don't. Inspired by the Holy Spirit of God (2 Timothy 3:16), the Bible IS TRUE - as Ripley might say, "Believe it or not." The more one studies it, the more obvious it becomes that the Bible deals too thoroughly with the spiritual condition of mankind to have sprung from the minds of mere mortals. Those who chalk the Bible up to "creative writing" are giving its earthly authors far too much credit, and have "exchanged the truth of God for the lie" (Romans 1:25).
[Quotes from NKJV]
The Bible is all true, but not fully comprehensible without the Holy Spirit to guide us. There are 2 parts within the Bible, the words themselves in a worldly manner which can help to guide us. Then there is the spiritual aspect, which is meant to sustain us. That is why you need to pray before reading the Bible, and do so almost in a state of meditation. This allows the spiritual meanings to come through. Also it is good to note that there are multiple levels of spiritual advice within the Bible as well, and as you grow in faith and in knowledge of Christ Jesus, you get more when you re-read a passage or chapter. Oh dear I do seem to be up against many experts here, and so I will give my answer as simply as I can. I believe the bible to be true is so far as it has been translated corectly from the works of the original writers.
The bible contains 100% truth.
Isaiah 40:22 "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth...".
The Bible is the "Roadmap of Life." However, although the Bible is a good book, being written by human men, it contradicts in many areas. Also, if the Bible was 100% true, all of us who claim to be Christians would be perfect in every way ~ just like Jesus Christ was when he was on earth and in human form. But, even Christians make mistakes, backslide, and sin. There's no such thing as a "perfect Christian."
yes; the word of god will always be true Answer: Alright, the overall answer is "......."=no. But it contains some truth or evidence that it may be true. It says about the ancient empires of the Greeks and Babylon empire in modern day Iraq- which evidence has been found of ancient statues and inscriptures from when the Macedonians and Persians were around- Alexander the great.
No it does not. Iit is merely a set of recommendations to how you should live life. It is only a book. It would be like setting up a religion based on Harry Potter, Narnia or Lord of the Rings. You cant believe somthing because it was writen before you were born. If the Bible were true all of mankind would be a creation of incest so believeing in the Bible is technically supporting incest.
well it's obviously not true because it's a corrupt book any way. What I mean is that they are meant to follow the story's with morals and such but yet they believe what was written in the supposed 'good' book am i the only one seeing the flaw in that plan
scripture contains the truth, but it has to be interpreted. book of revelation contains a lot of man's sins which are true but not truth. I believe Jesus dictated the gospel of john to the beloved disciple and this disciple wrote it. john is a book of forgiveness, healing, and truth. i accept john as the actual words of Jesus.
You have all got to be joking!, as the truth the bible is (as all religious works)as fanciful as any childs fantasy you will or ever hope to read.
Proof of mans evolution is indesputable in science and so fictional and magical in all of any religious works to date.
Women having children without anatomical connection and humans coming alive after death,hundreds feeding on a few fishes and loaves,oh please lets have sensible discussion on this matter.
Obviously the Bible does not contain all truth! It cannot. However, it does contain all Truth that is otherwise unknowable.
A truly accurate answer to your question requires that we establish what is "truth" for until we do so, we cannot begin to even remotely assess whether or not the Bible contains "all truth."
The salutation of Paul in the book of Titus and the statement of John will answer your question completely.
Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
Put this with John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Purple penguins are purple penguins is a true statement, thus a truth and it is not contained within the so-called Bible.
Given that the assertion "The Bible contain[s] all truth" is clearly false here, by extension we can expand the consideration such that:
By virtue of not containing a truth, "all truth" is not contained.
According to Jesus Christ in His prayer to His Father in heaven; yes... all of the Bible [God's Word] is Truth:
"Sanctify them through THY TRUTH: Thy Word IS TRUTH." (John 17:17 KJV)
Jesus is praying for His disciples, here, as well as for the future generations of God's servants who would come to "believe" the Truth.
"Neither pray I for these [disciples] alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; that they all might be One; as thou, Father, art in Me, and I in thee, that they also may be ONE IN US..." (verses 20-21).
Truth and Lies are OPPOSITES, not the same thing; like life and death. And Truth is still the Truth, whether anyone BELIEVES it or not; just as Lies are still lies, even if everyone believes them to be Truth.
Jesus reveals that God's Truth "sanctifies" [sets apart for God's Holy use - separates] those who "believe" the Truthful Words of God [the Bible]. And anyone who utters in public that they "believe what the Bible says," instantly knows the Truth of Jesus' prayerful statement -- because such believers become immediately separated, spiritually and socially, from former friends and relatives. Believing in Jesus Christ and what the Bible says is, dually, a "sanctifying" experience; with both God and one's fellowman in diametrically opposite ways.
How would we know the Bible contains all truth? Many say that it must be true because Jesus said so, quoting one passage or another from the Bible. But if the Bible is not infallibly true, then the words attributed to Jesus need not be true.
No, in terms that the Holy Bible contains holy scriptures which are subsumed under truth, and that all truth is in Omniscient God.
No, in terms that the Holy Bible is produced through the vagaries of corruptible men - of whom comes forth both truth and falsehood.
Perhaps an unarguable truth is found in Ecclesiastes 9:5: 'For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten'. If The Bible is literally true and Ecclesiastes is a legitimate book of the Bible, this should be a troubling statement for believers.
God has revealed a variety of vital truths for humankind, however, few have ever known or recognize these primarily because they depend upon tradition and not openly reading the Bible itself. Many professing Christians believe that if they are sincere in believing Christ is their Savior, then they will go to heaven. But God's gift of salvation is built upon His spirit and truth (see John 4:23-24).
The god of this world has deceived all to get them to worship him. Church traditions have led 2 billion plus adherents down a road that just doesn't agree with many biblical teachings: Christ born on Xmas day; 7 annual festivals of God and His dietary laws are for the Jews only; Christ rose on Easter Sunday; not every word of Scripture is literal and immediately going to heaven or hell upon death to list some traditions which differ from the Bible...In Jesus' actual 'Lord's Prayer,' He says very plainly:
John 17:16-17Contemporary English Version (CEV)16 They don't belong to this world, and neither do I. 17 Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours.

A commentary on Ecclesiastes 9:5
Ecclesiastes 9:5 seems to contradict the afterlife, stating "For the living know that they will die; but the dead know nothing; nor do they have any more reward..."
Here is how our sages interpreted this verse, in keeping with tradition (paraphrased from Rashi commentary) -
" 'For the living know that they will die': and perhaps they will consider the day of death and repent of their ways; but once they die, 'they know nothing, and they have no more reward' for the actions that they do from their death and onward; because (only) those who toil in this life will enjoy the next life."
LoveAnswer:The essential idea of truth in the Bible is faithfulness or reliability. God's truth (faithfulness or reliability) is basic for all other truth.

A:The Church may not seek the real, underlying truth of the bible, but biblical scholars do. It is the role of theologians to defend Christianity and if they began to accept the real truth of the Bible, it could be the end of Christianity. Another perspective:It stands to reason that a "church" that doesn't "dig for the truth" of the Bible is not genuinely representative of Christ's church at all, which holds truth in the utmost regard. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.(John 17:17)
Acts, Romans, Corinthians, and Galatians all contain the word church.

No, not at all. Two thirds of the bible was written before Jesus was born. Give it a read - it has a lot of knowledge in it.

From a Jewish point of view, ALL 24 books of the Hebrew Bible contain Hebrew except for a few passages in Aramaic.
