Mistakes in the Bible

(Here is one more good thought from Ray Comfort found on his blog, Comfort Food.)

One reason the Bible establishes itself as being the Word of God is that it exposes the hidden heart-motives of mankind. It reveals that:
  • He is in rebellion who loves to sin (Romans 3:10-18).
  • He mocks the things of God because he loves lust (2 Peter 2:14, 3:3).
  • He hates the light of the Bible because it exposes the darkness of his sinful heart (John 3:19-21).
  • He thinks the things of God are foolish (1 Corinthians 2:14).
  • He is hostile towards God (and will even deny His existence) because of His moral dictates (Romans 8:7).
  • He is plagued every day by the fear of death (Hebrews 2:14, 15).

In his ignorance he searches for what he believes are “mistakes” in the Bible to justify his godless beliefs. (This search, however, is not found in the Word of God itself, but from reading what others have said about the so-called mistakesin the Bible. They can't fanthom a thorough search on their own because of their hatred for God's very words which brings judgment to their sinful lifestyle.) He is like a man who diligently searches (with a magnifying glass) for a tiny fly dirt on the Mona Lisa, so that he can justify discarding the whole painting as junk.

What an excellent point! Awesome post! I encounter this at my blog when catholics read my posts. They post catholic dogma to defend their beliefs and catholic history. If they would only research real history and real Scriptures, they would see that their belief system is filled with lies. :-(

Sis. Kate,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Yes, their dogma is found outside the Word of God, but sadly, they trust in it more than they do God's Word, and many times won't even take the time to read God's Word for themselves, instead relying on their priests, bishops, and "the pope" to tell them what God says in His Word.

Why is the world afraid of picking up God's Word and reading it for themselves?????
