3 Ways to Prove the Historical Accuracy of The Bible

3

According to statistics, only 31% of America’s population believes that the Bible is absolutely accurate and should be obeyed word-for-word. 19% believe that the Bible is simply fables, legends, or ancient history, and 47% percent believe that the Bible may be inspired by God but shouldn’t be taken literally.

The Problem with “That’s Your Truth”

T

I was staring at my phone, waiting for a message from my good friend. I felt pretty confident about the last text message I had sent him. I was proud of myself; it was so well thought out and full of truth. Finally, my friend’s message came through.

After probing his views of the world and his justifications for them...

Charles Darwin theorized that the first life arose spontaneously in a warm little pond—and this idea seemed somewhat plausible as long as scientists believed a cell was a simple, jelly-filled blob. Today, however, we know that every cell is a miniature factory filled with organelles and protein machinery, all...

What If God’s Not Real?
