I don’t remember a thread devoted to this exact topic. Matt Black may have posted something similar but it has been awhile. Everyone here believes the Bible is inspired and most of us believe it is free from any mixture of error. But we just seem to take that as a given fact, sort of like the sun rising in the East. No one questions it but no one says why they accept it as true. In this thread we can discuss and share our ideas on why we accept the Bible as absolutely true. Is it because of archeological proof? Certainly it exists but it is not as plentiful as we might like. Is it because of nonbiblical history? If definitely helps but many events in the Bible are not found in history. Is it because the Bible itself tells us it is true? That would be circular reasoning. Is it because of our tradition? Almost none of us spend a lot of time with people who doubt the veracity of the Bible. We feed off each other and tend to think alike, but that is a lame reason to rely on something. So what is it? Hopefully we will get some interesting views and all of us will learn something.
