Why is the Bible True and other Scriptures False?

This has been a question that has plagued me for a long time, especially given my extensive study of other scriptures in addition to our own and my thorough study of historical/critical reflection on the Bible.

It seems to me either:

A. we must ACCEPT the premise "our scripture is true, theirs are not" on FAITH alone
B. we must DEMONSTRATE the premise "our scripture is true, theirs are not" RATIONALLY.

I would relish hearing a sound and sane discussion on this issue.

Thank you.

In Christ

The Holy Spirit Confirms the Truth

The only way any of us KNOW our scripture is true is because of the confirmation given all believers, by the indwelling Holy Spirit.
That is the ONLY way the Truth can be known. We don't have to demonstrate anything to anybody. Simply tell the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the need for all of us to be saved, as we ALL are sinners.
The rest of the demonstrating is up to the Holy Spirit.
