Last week while meditating on the origin and strength of the integrity of our scriptures, my thoughts wondered to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and how significant they have been in confirming our knowledge today that the scriptures we read today are in fact copied with great accuracy.
Can you imagine back to a the time the young boy goat herd discovered the scrolls in the late 1940's? It is said that he was unruffled by the discovery. Having been a Christian myself it is hard to understand other people's hesitancy when coming into a relationship with God for the first time to believe in scripture but having read this story it makes a little more sense.
I suppose discovering a relationship with God is a strange experience and as it is unknown there might be a reluctance to take scripture seriously. Luckily though someone did take the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls seriously and they have confirmed the accuracy of our scriptures today in many ways.
If you are new to a relationship with God open your heart to the truth of God's word. The faith that we follow today is testified to in scriptures that date back thousands of years and our origins in God are ancient. We can confidently rely on the scriptures we read today as truth and as such we should take heed to consider them and their content seriously.
