Can You Reasonably Trust The Bible? (South Jordan)

“Faith, being belief that isn’t based on evidence, is the principal vice of any religion... Scientific belief is based upon publicly checkable evidence, religious faith not only lacks evidence; its independence from evidence is its joy, shouted from the rooftops.” - Richard Dawkins 

“Faith, being belief that isn’t based on evidence, is the principal vice of any religion... Scientific belief is based upon publicly checkable evidence, religious faith not only lacks evidence; its independence from evidence is its joy, shouted from the rooftops.” - Richard Dawkins

 
Luke 1:1-41 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. 3 Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught. 

2 Peter 1:16–18 16 We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. 


2 Timothy 3:16–17 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.


Extraordinary CLAIMS demand extraordinary EVIDENCE

.
Extraordinary CLAIMS demand CREDIBLE evidence. 


Biblical Christianity is BUILT upon CREDIBLE evidence.


Bruce Metzger is one of the great scholars of modern times, and I dedicated the book to him because he was both my inspiration for going into textual criticism and the person who trained me in the field. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him. And even though we may disagree on important religious questions – he is a firmly committed Christian and I am not – we are in complete agreement on a number of very important historical and textual questions. If he and I were put in a room and asked to hammer out a consensus statement on what we think the original text of the New Testament probably looked like, there would be very few points of disagreement – maybe one or two dozen places out of many thousands. - Bart D. Ehrman 


“The search for truth takes you where the evidence leads you, even if, at first, you don't want to go there.” - Bart D. Ehrman, Forged: Writing in the Name of God

But the view I map out here is that none of these divine miracles, or any others, can be established historically. Conservative evangelical Christian apologists are right to say that this is because of the presuppositions of the investigators. - Ehrman, Bart D - How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee 


It is hard to find the TRUTH if you assume the truth is IMPOSSIBLE


SMCC - Questions, Doubts & ResourcesCrossexamined.org - apologists website, Frank Turek“Reason for God” by Tim Keller


The EXTRAORDINARY claims of Jesus require ORDINARY acts of obedience. 

Matthew 7:24–27 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
