Christians believe God always tells the truth; they believe it is impossible for him to lie. They believe the Bible is the truth because they believe the Bible is God's word.
The Bible is like a plumb-line to Christians. Christians believe the Bible is always right, just like a plumb-line. As a plumb-line shows a builder a true and straight line, the Bible shows Christians how to live God’s way. Some people describe the Bible as ‘the Maker‘s instructions’ – just as we might follow instructions on how to use a new piece of equipment, the Bible describes how God planned his creation, it describes how he planned people to live. However the Bible is not just a list of instructions. Christians believe the Bible is a special work of the Holy Spirit.
