Let us take some time to understand the real difficulty. Please post one problem at a time. Be specific. What do I mean by that?
Let us understand the problem first. That will be easier, if we use the language of data, rather than the langusge of emotion, language of judgment, etc. Will you please state one that comes to your mind, without much thinking? I will be glad to work with you.

I thank God for the path you have choosen. You are young and have a long journey to complete. My advise to you is that you please spend more time in prayer for more grace. The commission that Jesus gave us is to share the good news with others. If you go beyond that commission with an intention to defend the Bible with scientific proofs or apologetics is dangerous sometimes. There is a long fight going on between Biblical scholars and Darvian theologians for long time. Proving the Biblical facts with evidence to save someone else souls is foolishness.
'Campus Crusade Of Christ' has a highly effective book called 4 SPIRITUAL LAWS. This is wonderful book you can use to explain the human condition and the importance of salvation. You can ask this book from a local Campus Crusade For Christ representitive. Check out the site http://www.jesusandyou.com/BornAgainMusic/holyofholies/default.html where this is described with some additional messages.
After you share the gospel, pray for them. When you are faced with challenging questions, you can be honest regarding the answer. If you don't know the answer say NO. Love your friends instead of hating them because of their religion or don't believe in what you believe.
The important task that is set before you at this moment is to complete your education and meet the expectations of your parents and loved ones.

Dear Brothers In Christ, I am very sorry for my late reply as I was having my exams.And I thank all for your reply's. One of the main questions my friends ask is,How can I say that the Bible is completely true ?.This book was written my God through many prophets.kings,his disciples and many people of diffrent kind."Can't there be any mistakes when it is translated,and passed through many generation. MARANATHA!!

The scriptures are immutable, inspired, and inerrant only as it was originally given. Errors could have happened in translating them and/or copying them. This could be the result of intentional or unintentional acts of man. The word of God as God's revelation of His mind to man is a progressive revelation. If you study the scriptures carefully, whether it is a translation or a copy, you could easilty identify the errors, if any. The use of textual criticism is the most effective way of identifying these type of errors.
