“An incomprehensibly holy God with such a hatred of sin would never have been conceived of by any of Adam’s fallen descendants because this would have required an admission of guilt.... The description of God's holiness of foreign to man-made gods found in mythology and false systems of religion. This further evidences the divine inspiration of Scripture. People, by nature, do not really want to believe in God's holiness as described in the Scriptures. Fallen man wants to emphasize personally beneficial attributes ahead of those that do not serve his interests." - Keith Knell.
I agree. This is one of the best evidences for the truth of Scripture. The God of the Bible does not just go after "others" out there and create some kind of us versus them mentality. No. It directly targets all of us in a sweeping judgment of our rebellion against God. If any are saved it is by their sheer mercy of God in Jesus Christ (Rom. 9:15, 16), not because we were better than others. This teaching goes so against the grain of human nature that it rings genuine. When you look at mythologies and other religions in the world, without fail they somehow prop up man and his pride. They point to human attainment rather than divine accomplishment because men are, by nature, prideful and it goes against ever fiber in our being to acknowledge our helpless and spiritually bankrupt state. In the Old Testament the LORD knew that Israel would be tempted to be prideful because he chose them over others so he makes certain they know that it had nothing to do with them, stripping them of all possibility of boasting over others. God declared:
“Do not say in your heart, after the Lord your God has thrust them out before you, ‘It is because of my righteousness that the Lord has brought me in to possess this land,’ whereas it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out before you. Not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart are you going in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and that he may confirm the word that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. “Know, therefore, that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stubborn people." - Deuteronomy 9: 4-6
The Scripture's repeated brutal honesty of our absolutely lost, sinful and irretrievably broken condition before God is another in the long line of evidence pointing to the reality that God has inspired the Scripture.
