Q: Are there Christians who think the Bible is just a collection of stories?

A: Honestly, few Christians would ever say that about most events in the Bible, such as Christ’s birth, death and resurrection. But when it comes to the first eleven chapters of the Bible, many Christians think they’re just “stories” or “fables.” And they obviously don’t see the problem this creates.

Quote of the Week

“American Atheists, today, has demanded that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission modify its newly issued regulations and guidelines to include protection for Atheists against religious harassment in the workplace.

“These demands include the following:
(1) The physical work place, itself, should be religion-free, that is without religious radio programs, signs, framed mottos, pictures, poems, calendars, ornaments, jewelry, brochures, crucifixes, Bibles or religious literature, and religious notices (on shared communications boards).
(2) The milieu of the work place should be free of ‘god-talk,’ that is singing, humming, or whistling of religious songs or hymns, religious conversations, prayers, and overt meditations.
(3) ‘Holiday’ celebrations should not be religion centered. Religious decorations, religious ‘caroling,’ and prayers should be eliminated during the Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, Passover and Ramadan seasons. At most grouped ‘Winter’ and ‘Spring’ events should be recognized.”

– American Atheists, press release, May 2, 1994.

How do we ultimately know anything in the Bible? How do we know the Babe lay in a manger? Or how do we know He was the Son of God?

There’s plenty of circumstantial evidence, but, ultimately, the only way we know is because we accept the Word of God, as written.

By rejecting the six days of creation, as written in Genesis, Christians have brought the entire Bible into question.

After all, if you can use man’s ideas about a very old Earth to reinterpret the historical record of Genesis, then why not also use man’s ideas to reinterpret the New Testament? After all, scientists have never shown that a man can rise from the dead. So does that prove the resurrection was just spiritual, not physical? Of course not!

It’s time that churches and Christian schools begin upholding the authority of the Bible, from the very first verse!
