In a science experiment, a theory is given, then tested using an experiment--or many experiments--to see if that theory holds up. In the chemistry curriculum, it's all laid out and easy. The book explains every detail of the experiment, plus what should happen and why.
Even though the book explains everything, students are required to complete the experiment to "see it for themselves." They could simply read and believe what the book tells them, but they are encouraged and usually required to "prove" those words.
Danny has been a pretty good scientist this year, detailed in his reports and observations from the experiments. For the most part, he has "proven" the theories and explanations in his chemistry book. He knows he can rely on the definitions and explanations in the book, since he has tested them and shown them to be true.
Just like chemistry and other science curriculum, God's Word can also be tested. And since we know that God does not change, and His words are true and everlasting, we don't even have to put them to the test! We can stand on them as standing on a rock, and we will be made secure.
Every word of God is tested;
He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
Proverbs 30:5 NASB
And we know that the Son of God has come,
and has given us understanding so that we may know
Him who is true;
and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God and eternal life.
1 John 5:20 NASB
