Yes. "God, who cannot lie…"(Titus 1:2) gave us the Bible. "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 perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16,17.

However, that does not mean that all scriptures are literal. For example, the parable of the wheat and the tares is not about literal wheat and tares. It is about true and false Christians symbolized by these two plants. Parables are usually easy to identify. However, there are many, many prophecies and teachings which picture concepts and are not literal

Consider Isaiah 2:3, "And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths…” The mountain in this verse is not a literal mountain. It is talking about God's kingdom. This is proved in Daniel 2:35, 44, 45 (ESV), "Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces…But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth…the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed…It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold…"

If a person literally interprets every Bible verse, then there are many contradictions. Ecclesiastes 1:4 teaches the earth will always be: "the earth remains forever." However, Zephaniah 2:8 reads, "Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey…to gather the nations…to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy." That can't be literal fire because the next verse teaches that afterward God will give mankind a pure language. "For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent." If the literal earth is burned up, how could people be left to serve God together? In these scriptures, the earth symbolizes the evil governments and systems. And just as fire completely destroys whatever it is burning, so earth's evil systems will be completely destroyed (like the Daniel 2 scriptures quoted above).

So, when you are reading and studying God's word, the Bible, you may be confident that it is all true. (Please note: the Bible has been recopied over thousands of years. Some copy errors have occurred.)
