How does the evidence for the Bible affect our faith?
- The Christian faith rests upon the truthfulness of the Bible, and the laws of evidence applied to the Bible demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt the Bible’s authenticity and authority.
- Critics who reject the Bible, yet accept documents and events that have less demonstrable evidence, are not properly applying the laws of evidence.
- We can have confidence in the Bible and therefore in the “faith once for all delivered to the saints.”
- In the final analysis, though “the faith” rests upon historic events accurately recorded and transmitted, we enter relationship with God and all that goes with that relationship by faith.
