How would you go about it? What would you use for evidence?
Ultimately it is a matter of faith, you never argue or prove yourself or someone else into the kingdom of God. If I did go to court an "won", do you tink I would be proving the bible is the record of God's revelation or would I be "proving" that I believe what I believe and convince you that I am right?
You can prove scripture in most cases as much as you can prove history. Scripture cannot be proven scientifically because by the very definition of science. Scripture is not repeatable.
I've read books along this line. Virtually no court decision has absolute proof of the verdict rendered. The standard is usually "beyond a reasonable doubt", if I'm not mistaken.
I don't think you can prove "God's Word"... but there is a lot of evidence to back up many portions of scripture. This would go a long way in showing that scripture is trustworthy.
Winning a court case won't necessary "prove" anything - how many times are courts wrong?
I don't think you can prove the Bible is God's Word. If people knew that God existed and could not lie, and then God came down from Heaven and said it is His Word, that might do it. Otherwise, nope.
One time I was watching your American show "Judge Judy" and this chap gets up and quotes the Bible for his defense, it was dismissed immediantly and he was told not to go quoting the Bible in her court. Cant remember if he won or not or what it was even about. I do recall being a little surprised that he was not allowed to use that as his opinion though.
Well that don't surprise me . Judge Judy is known mostly for be rude and obnoxious not for her legal mind such as it is.Keep in mind that is a television show.
It's not as if Judge Judy is a "real" court, per se, but I'm still kinda interested. WHat bible verse(s) did the guy quote? Were they relevant to the case?
To be honest Brett, I cannot remember. He answered something like - Well the Bible says in ? etc etc, to which he was rather bluntly told where he stood!
I think you could prove the Bible is God's Word in a court of law.I base that in the information contained in the following books:
Evidence that demmands a verdict
More evidence that demmands a verdict
Tough questions skeptics ask
More than a Carpenter
Reading these books will help you be able to give a good strong well reasoned defense of your faith.
Two things: One, our courts are founded upon that very Word of God!
Two, II Cor 5:17. If you knew me before I met Jesus, not only would you see the change He made by and thru His Word, but you'd understand why I LOVE Him!!!
Amen and Amen.
