Questions About the Bible, Part 1- "Is The Bible Reliable?"

The first question that I would like to hit this week is the question of reliability. We've all heard the skeptics question various aspects about the Bible and it has planted seeds of doubt in our hearts. There are lots of great questions, but don't forget that there are lots of great answers! To help unwrap the answers that we all have about the Bible, I will be linking to some great articles this week that will help establish your faith in God's word. Here is an article from the Christian Research Institute, enjoy!

Have you tried to show someone the historical reliability of the Scriptures, and not known where to start? A quick trip to your local well-stocked Christian bookstore likely will overwhelm you. Where among the dozens of impressive, comprehensive reference books should you start?

Fortunately, while there is a wealth of information available to support the reliability of Scripture, you don’t have to burn, the midnight oil to give a reasonable answer to those who ask, “How can we know the Bible is reliable?” Four basic principles chart your way to understanding basic biblical reliability. To help you remember, I’ve developed the simple acronym “MAPS.” Remember the word MAPS and you will be able to chart Bible reliability.Click here for the rest of the article!
