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

I agree but would like to add...

Thomas O

Because the scriptures demonstrate a majesty and awe that no other "scripture" does. The Holy Spirit actively inspired the writers from Moses to John. AND it was by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that the holy canon was finally closed at the appointed time.
