|Most Christians believe the Bible is the infallible, inspired word of God. If that's true, it gives credibility to the beliefs of millions of people and essentially proves Christianity to be true. If it's false, it pretty much destroys the claims of Christianity and the faith of its believers. So it's no wonder why it's a big issue in Christendom.
Here's my one little example that doesn't necessarily prove anything but merely illustrates a point: Let's say I ask a New York Giants fan to repeat the following statement: "The Philadelphia Eagles will win the Super Bowl this year." It's quite possible to successfully repeat this phrase verbatim, without hesitation and without a second thought. However, there are at least 3 factors that could introduce error:
So right there we have the fact that it's a sensitive issue, it's a positive statement about an enemy, and it's a lie. Yet, I'm absolutely certain that a person could repeat these words exactly as I say them, without introducing any error. #religion
- For a football fan, any talk of the Super Bowl is a touchy subject, especially at this point in the season, and especially if your team hasn't been doing well lately.
- Giants fans hate the Eagles, so any statement in favor of the Eagles will have a tendency to be skewed.
- It's almost certainly an untrue statement. Based on the Eagles' current record (and recent performance), they have almost no chance in the world of getting to the Super Bowl, much less winning it.
