It calls itself "Holy." God is said to have "inspired" the writings of scripture. But modern theological scholars have convinced millions of Christians that the Bible is full of errors. Many of these scholars like to gather together at the "Jesus Seminar" and cross out Bible verses they don't believe, as well as things, Jesus "couldn't have actually said." They don't think God can preform miracles, so they x-out the supernatural events in the Bible, saying they are not true.
Then comes their superior attitude. They look down their noses at us, laughable "mental lightweights" and our belief in the Bible. It's hard for them to understand how someone can actually believe the Biblical authors, even when those same authors indicate (or outright say) they are telling historic and factual events in scripture. The liberal "intellectuals" strut around believing they know the (big "T") truth because they have evolved their thinking to find higher meaning in the "myths" God's Word contains. The liberal seminary teachers have done well in sending out miniature clones of themselves to preach their "superior view" of scripture.
They have deceived millions.
If God could just tell us how we should view scripture. . . (long pause) . . . He did . . . We can look to Jesus. He knew the Bible better than anyone before and after Him. Jesus never once said an event didn't happen, when the Bible says it did. In fact, Jesus verified people and stories in scripture as being true. He talked about Adam; He spoke about Moses. Jonah and the whale did happen, according to Jesus. The list goes on.
Jesus verified prophecy was written about Him and He was with us to fulfill it. Think about that. Humans can not predict future events with any accuracy. God was involved in the writing of the Bible. Jesus knew it. Because Jesus was actively involved in the writing of it.
The liberal scholars of today have nothing on Jesus. Who are you going to believe?
