Some cars discussed how they thought they were gigantic paperweights; others advanced the theory that they were really just living quarters. Finding it difficult to come to a satisfactory answer, they all started to drift toward the answer:
Just then, one of the cars came out with a book called “The Owner’s Manual” and proceeded to show the rest of the cars how it explained so many mysteries.
Not only that, the manual explained and described components under the hood that the cars themselves were not aware of until they, following the guidelines of the manual, opened their hoods and looked inside.
They realized that this manual must have been written by someone who intimately knew what they were and how they were put together.
In this example, note how the evidence for the validity of the manual came as they subjected themselves to introspection.
Likewise, when we approach the Bible with an open and introspective heart, we find, to our own surprise, that it shows a deep, intimate knowledge of us - a knowledge that could only come from our Creator.
