Stand to Reason Blog: The Bible Was Only Written by Men…

Hello all!

I want to pop in quickly and share a blog post that I found to be thought provoking.  It comes from the blog “Stand to Reason” (I found it by way or friends blog).  The post is titled “The Bible Was Only Written by Men…and Men Make Mistakes.”.   In the post, the author points out two big flaws to this argument. 

Flaw 1: “…it doesn’t follow that because the Bible’s written by men, that it therefore must be in error. Human error is possible, not necessary. If human error were always necessary in anything man said, this challenge would be self-refuting (“suicide tactic”). If all human claims were necessarily in error, then the claim that the Bible was written by men and men make mistakes would also be in error because it’s a claim made by men who err, defeating itself.”

Flaw 2: “Second, this is circular reasoning. If there’s good evidence the Bible can be trusted, then the issue of man’s involvement is moot…”

The author adds additional insight to both propositions but keeps ii conveniently succinct, so be sure to check it out here.

God bless and veritas supra omnis!
