The common view most people have regarding the Bible is that it was written by human beings and therefore must be flawed. The problem with this statement is that it cancels itself out by its own assertion. This assertion itself is a human conclusion and therefore must also be flawed. This presents a problem that forces one to examine the evidence behind both claims, and come to a reasoned out verdict, rather than a blanket statement that provides no objective thought.
So often I talk to and hear from people who disregard the Bible because of their subjective belief that it must be flawed because it was written by man. In almost every case when I begin to question them on what they find in the Bible that is flawed, they cannot give me a specific answer. In the rare occasion when one does provide an example of a supposed flaw in the Bible, the problem is easily explained away through a deeper understanding of the context of the scripture in question.
Skepticism of the Bible is always either based on dishonesty or ignorance. In the case of dishonesty, the skeptic has an agenda that does not play nice with a Biblical world view, therefore they must discredit it at all costs. In the case of the ignorant, which accounts for most people in America, these people simply believe what they are taught by the dishonest skeptics without investigating the Bible for themselves. For the ignorant it is more convenient to trust in the dishonest skeptic, because this world view does not hold one accountable for sin.
I admit, I was an ignorant skeptic. However, once I looked into my doubts regarding the Bible, I found sound, logical and amazing answers to my questions. I know every person that reads this has doubts, but I promise you, if you honestly seek the truth and give the Bible a chance, God will answer your questions and eliminate those doubts.
Please become a follower of this blog, and I will provide as much evidence as I can that will prove to you that we can indeed trust the Bible to be the word of God. I will also do my best to answer any questions you may have.
