• True faith knows no reason. That is both its best and worst quality.
  • It is circluar argument. Thus illogical to critical minds. To one who takes the Bible literally, it is flawless, and the Bible is its own proof. They accept this as a valid position. I see their point and understand, but would like more evidence before judging anyone.
  • Think of it like this, only God has the authority to make such a bold statement. One may wonder upon the possibility of a treason, but only God would be so bold as to put us in quite the cunundrum. :) (Im agnostic I just like to fancy what it would be like to bleieve)
  • Christians use scripture to test the veracity of religious arguments and theories because it is the only inerrant teaching we have at our disposal. Since the Bible contains Gods word from cover to cover then we know that any religious theory must be supportable using scripture or it isn't true. If you are an athiest then you may never be convinced that the Bible contains God's words, but just in case I'm wrong let me proclaim that truth to you right now. Let me also remind you that lots of intelligent people have tried to disprove the Bible over the years and all have failed. In fact, many who tried to disprove the existence of God became Christians themselves after looking at the subject with an open mind. I pray that you will look at the Bible with an open mind and I also pray that you will accept God's love while you still have time to do so. Good luck and God bless. :o)
  • I completely agree with your point of view, excepting the fact that I believe that the homosexual act is sinful, but that is another question. Many Christians cannot provide one speck of evidence, other than a burning in their bossom, that the Bible is the infallible Word of God. In fact, the Bible itself doesn't even explicitly say this. Now I believe the the Bible is the infallible Word of God, and I could give an answer that doesn't rely solely on the Bible to do so.
  • The Bible is not a single book. It is a collection of scriptures gathered over a 3000 year period. There's nothing wrong with using multiple sources to prove each other. Science does the same thing all the time. Don't confuse yourself merely because they all fit inside a single cover.
  • In a perfect world anything you did could in some way shape or form be perfect if you perfectly analyzed it.
  • One can make a case for the credibility of the Bible based on its coherence, consistence and lack of contradiction. These internal checks do much to defend the trustworthiness of the Bible. Other books considered sacred fail in these areas. Beyond that the Bible is not used to prove itself true. When theologians speak of testing the Bible against itself or scripture against scripture, they are referring to the interpretations of difficult or confusing passages. This is the most Biblically sound approach to hermeneutics.
  • Do people feel as if they might be doing something 'wrong' because of religious persons? As far as what sort of character God might have, we know that He is God and not man that He should think as man.. And at the same time we have to conclude that man will not be able to 'think' as God. But from Holy Texts, we are given some thoughts and 'rules' which have proceeded out of God's mind. We have to also remember that before Abram left his home town and had his named changed to Abraham, although there were many persons alive and doing their own thing, that generation was actually a result of Noah's own children having children. So if you go back into History to see whether or not men and women of olden days believed in God, etc... we will have to go back to Noah and his children and from there back even further. Today's human population is a direct lineage from Noah and his family and Noah and his family were direct lineages to Adam and Eve.... So basically in a nut shell, Abraham was a great great grandson of sorts of Noah through the line of Shem, one of Noah's sons. So whether or not i may be atheist or monotheist or polytheist or some other sort of theist or lack of theism, my direct lineage is traced back to the original speakers of the language i speak... If philosophy and ancient Greek and Roman customs is concerned, those days proceeded from the lineage of Japheth, one of Noah's sons also... In fact, a grandson of Noah, Mizraim son of Ham, his name Mizraim means 'Egypt'. Mizraim could have been the very first Egyptian ruler before there was ever a civilized Egypt. So... whether or not a person believes or does not believe, the question then is changed to, 'am i really a descendant to one of Noah's sons' instead of 'am i really created by God.' If God is a myth and untrue, so then too would be the accounts of the Flood... and every other 'written' well as the 'fathers' of Canaan and Egypt...
  • Using the Bible will keep one going in circles.. Using The Holy Bible will give one a Sure Foundation. // A bibliography is a list of all of the sources you have used (whether referenced or not) in the process of researching your work. In general, a bibliography should include: the authors' names. the titles of the works. the names and locations of the companies that published your copies of the sources. // Bi·ble Origin Middle English: via Old French from ecclesiastical Latin biblia, from Greek biblia ‘books,’ from biblion ‘book,’ originally a diminutive of biblos ‘papyrus, scroll,’ of Semitic origin.
