Objection: The Bible is Full of Errors

October 06, 2009

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit…and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12

One of the main objections to Christianity is this: “The Bible is filled with myths and mistakes. It’s a book of men rather than a book of God.” But the real questions behind this objection are:

* Can the Bible be trusted?
* Is it really true?
* Is it God’s Word, or man’s?

First response: What mistakes are you concerned about? Is there a possibility you are parroting some professor like the breathtaking brilliance of a college freshman? Or have you really studied it yourself and determined there are mistakes?

Secondly, all of Scripture’s dependability rises and falls with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If that did not occur, the book is filled with lies and Christianity is a colossal hoax! But if Jesus rose from the dead, then everything else in the Bible is possible and believable.

Believing in the Bible begins with Jesus. And faith in Jesus begins with the trustworthiness of Scripture.
