What Would You Do Differently If the Bible Were True?

If we could absolutely, positively, without question establish and prove once and for all that God's Holy Bible and everything in it is 100% truth, would all unbelievers repent and accept Jesus as their LORD and Savior? If you are an unbeliever, only you could answer this question. However, I'd like to put some things in perspective.

The LORD Put Words in their Mouths
"Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, 'Now, I have put my words in your mouth.'"
Jeremiah 1:9

Prophet Commanded to Speak God's Word
The LORD commanded Ezekiel, "You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious."
Ezekiel 2:7

Old Testament Prophets and New Testament Apostles
"I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles."
2 Peter 3:2

Scripture is God-breathed
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correction and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
2 Timothy 3:16-17

Jesus said, "Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth."
John 17:17

Not one fact of God's Holy Bible has ever been disproved. On the contrary, every archeological discovery upholds the Bible. Old Testament prophecies have been scribed and realized 100% accurately. Each scientific law of nature upholds the Bible. And some scientific facts are discovered many, many years after they were penned in the Scriptures. While the Bible does not use any scientific terms, it is always 100% accurate scientifically.

Stars Make a Humming Sound (discovered only recently)
"While the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy."
Job 38:7

The Earth is Round (finally proven about the time of Christopher Columbus in 1492).
"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in."
Isaiah 40:22

When God established His covenant of circumcision with Abram, He required that the baby boys be circumcised on the 8th day. Abram couldn't have known medically in the time of Genesis that the babies would be unable to clot their own blood prior to the 8th day of life. For this reason today, baby boys are given a Vitamin K shot so circumcisions can be performed sooner.

On the Eighth Day
"For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner -- those who are not your offspring."
Genesis 17:12

While only a very few of the Biblical truths have been introduced here, many others exist. The question remains. The Old Testament Prophets have recorded that they have spoken God's Words through their mouths. Paul claims that "All Scripture is God-breathed." And Jesus said, ". . . your word is truth." God's Holy Bible is either 100% truth or it's completely unreliable. There is no middle ground here. Many prophecies have been realized. All the prophecies of Jesus' birth, life, and death were realized. There has never been one disproven fact in the Bible. While we might not understand how something is possible doesn't negate the fact that it could have happened exactly as the Bible describes. It only means that we are ignorant in that area.

So assume that the Holy Bible is 100% true. Until proven otherwise, why would you assume anything else? Now that you are assuming the Holy Bible is God's truth, would you do anything differently? Would you repent? Would you like a new beginning? Here's the Good News. You can have a new beginning. Right here, right now!

Become a Child of God
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God"
John 1:12

Pray a simple prayer like this:
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am sinful and in need of Your forgiveness. I repent of my sinful lifestyle, and I want to turn from it and follow You. I believe that You died to pay the penalty for my sins and that You rose from the grave. I invite You to come into my heart and become my Lord and Savior. I ask this in Your name. Amen."

If you just prayed that prayer, then welcome to the family of God. In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are a new creation.

Children of God
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him"
1 John 3:1

To become children. . . . Don't you need a mother? If the Bible teaches that God is our Father shouldn't it also teach that God is our Mother too? Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above it's free and she it's our mother. . . 31. therefore, brothers we are not children of the slave women but of the free woman.

Interesting question. Your Biblical reference was to an allegory of Hagar and Sarah.

Did Adam or Eve have a mother? No. Genesis 2:7 says that, "God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." That was a miracle. Each time God saves a lost soul, a new life is created out of spiritual death. They are born of God.

Look at the language in 1 John 5, for example v1 shows, "Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves his child as well."
