Did you know Adam lived long enough to know Noah’s father Lamech? So Lamech was able to hear Adam's eyewitness account of the Garden of Eden and tell it to Noah...who was one of the eight survivors after the Flood.
This is just one example of how God preserves, verifies and transmits Truth to us.*
On a personal level, I heard about the Gospel from my parents who heard about it from their parents who heard about it from their parents and we all had the Bible to verify what we heard.
God preserves and transmits Truth through people, circumstances, events, signs and wonders. And He promises:
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. ~ Jeremiah 29:13 (NLT)
But God isn’t hiding—He’s anxious to be found. You might say He is chasing us so that we can find Him. If you're looking for God in some area of your life, persevere and you'll find him.
This is but another characteristic of God for which I am thankful!

* Certain cults claim that the Bible was corrupted and the message can't be trusted. They claim their prophet(s) know the real meaning of Scripture, as if God was unable to speak to us for hundreds or thousands of years until their prophet(s) entered the scene. This claim makes their god very small. The true and Living God knows how to speak to His people and He would not sit by and allow the Bible's message to be corrupted while millions of souls died without opportunity to be saved.
