    Why the bible?

    What makes the bible a credible source of history? And don't say "because it says so".

    The bible is unique:

    The Ultimate Authority-Best book ever written

    I WENT TO A NEW ENGLAND PREP SCHOOL AND HAD TO STUDY THE BIBLE FOR 4 YEARS. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT MANY OF MY PROFESSORS, ALL WERE MINISTERS, WERE SKEPTICAL OF MANY PARTS OF THE STORIES IN THE BIBLE. SINCE THE WRITERS WERE NOT LIVING DURING THE TIME THAT BOTH THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS WERE NOT AROUND, MY LOGIC AND REASON TELL ME SOME IS TRUE AND ALOT OF IT IS FALSE. TO SAY THE BTBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE THE MEN WHO WROTE IT WERE INSPIRED BY GOD TO ME IS SPECIOUS SINCE ANYONE CAN SAY THEY WERE INSPIRED BY GOD AND HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DISPROVE IT.

    Exactly. They could have put anything in that book and christians would be forced to take it as truth as long as there were some good morals mixed in. They had to keep the baby and the bathwater. Hey, I'm writing a book. What if I started threatening my readers unless they took my fiction for truth? As long as it changed their lives, who cares right? You DO have FAITH right?
