Why the World Sees Error in the Bible


Ezekiel 14:4 …Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;

The man that has an idol in his heart looks at the world through the lens of self or some unbiblical ideology. If you believe in a naturalist philosophy, a false god, or believe in yourself more than God, and then seek truth when your heart will not take it, God will let you see what you want to see: error, contradiction, and discrimination. He answers you in your delusion. This is what happens when a skeptic tries to interpret the word of God. This is the condemnation of the world, that men love darkness rather than light. The serious student comes to God honestly seeking without a pretense in his heart. God gives his light to the latter man.

Errors in the Bible

Science Catching up to God

 

How do you talk to someone about truth if the Bible is faulty? A coworker told me recently that there has to be errors in the Bible because the best way to control the minds of people is to control their source of authority i.e. the Bible. And who’s to say that people didn’t either accidentally or on purpose change words here and there throughout history. OK. Fine. Suppose the Bible was at least partly incorrect, let’s say 25%. That would mean 75% would be correct. How would you distinguish between accurate passages and inacurrate passages? It seems to me that if one part is wrong then all of it can be called into question. I also don’t think that one has to be versed on how many supporting documents the Bible has in order to prove it is true. Nor do I think that one has to know the history or “chain of custody” so to speak. Besides, I never seem to have a history book, or any one of the 5,000 supporting texts with me when I have these conversatons. And because these things are conveniently missing from my fingertips, I can never prove or support my arguments. Therefore, I render the whole “evidence” argument moot. Either the Bible is or isn’t true. Swaying your opponent from his staunch position almost never happens. I mainly find that those who call the Bible into question never really read it anyway. I have yet to be asked a question about a specific “error”. And please don’t gather evidence from here and there piecing together an opinion. Research the source.
