Just a fable?

So many doubt the authenticity of the Bible and believe that someone like me is ignorant for accepting it as the true word of God.
I’ve heard theories by the naysayers that the Bible was written by one person, mistranslated, changed, or it is just fables.

The fable theory isn’t anything new. One of the fabled apostles addressed it.
For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
Peter maintains that he was there and was an eye witness.

I’ve discovered that when I have an encounter with God and try to share it, people often think I’m making up some wild story too.
That would be from those that have never had such experiences with God.

I will admit that language changes and as it does it changes the meaning of the Bible according to the language but not according to God.
I’ve read old English and found the spelling difficult to understand. One of the most famous translations is the 1611 King James Version. It wasn’t the first in English. John Wycliffe actually did that in 1380.
I was born in 1957 and the language of my childhood is very different from the language I hear 59 years later.
Language may change but God does not!

Despite that man is involved in writing and translating the Bible from language to language; do you believe that God can still inspire men/women to translate His word today?
God says all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Tim 3:16-17

A reminder that Satan desires to keep you from believing by changing the truth of God’s word, mostly by staring off with, “Has God indeed said…” Gen 3:1

Don’t let Satan distract you from the truth that God has given. He wants you to believe it is just a fable. And don’t let your own logic get in the way either. You cannot out think God.
