This is a joke right?

Read a quip by a fella who sincerely (well maybe a feigned sincerity) asked if historians of the Christian persuasion can possibly be honest by promoting the biblical narrative.  Here it is.

Question: Can a biblical historian be thoroughly objective as a Christian and retain their integrity?

Ha! Perhaps this is the better question:

Does the atheist have an ounce of INTEGRITY when sitting in judgement of God and scripture?

Thus the question posed regarding historians is riddled with contradiction, and further reveals the deceptive traits in promoting ‘errors’ in the only reliable historical account of man’s origins, his progress, his regress, and his future.

But there is more. It is not so much that the atheist has issues with Joshua, trumpets, King Darius, Daniel, dreams, Mordecai, Haman, Xerxes, Esther, the hanging gardens, the Red Sea, The Tigris and Euphrates, Seth, Enos, Methuselah, King David, Shem, Japheth, Ararat, (all historical certainties doncha know) but that specifically, the atheist cannot tolerate the scorching revelation what scripture reveals about HIMSELF. This is the furnace of truth, this is the crucible that tests the reader of Gods word,  liars, thieves, and all criminals will do anything to try to break the mirror of truth, aka, the holy bible. Sorry, no can do.

Sure many have tried, many fabrications of their own delusions, large erasers employed, but God’s word stands, like the armor it is, it reveals EVERY assault against it, and remains untarnished, without a dent or a speck of rust. The historical record remains just as resolute as the sun shining in its strength and all misfits may as well waste their time trying to find fault with him too.

But what pray tell can the atheist teach us regarding this so-called integrity that he holds? Integrity is the foundation of a building, it is what holds up everything above it, and without this foundation, the building falls. While being not seen, it is the root for everything built upon it. No wonder the atheist would destroy the root, that which holds mankind to the only standard, yet the atheist boasts of integrity that he possibly cannot have? Please.

And THIS is the state of mind of all antagonists of scripture. A man may not like what scripture presents as history; he may not like the acts of men and the responses by God, but he cannot argue against the truth of what scripture so accurately says, about HIM.

And in this brutal assessment of the heart of man, the atheist has eyes clouded by a lousy and lying frame of reference, just as God’s word explains, and men revolt and despise such authority, and the more one revels in rebellion, the greater the antagonism toward God, scripture, and good people of faith, resulting in such blatant stupidity as: Can a Christian keep his integrity by believing the historical narrative of scripture?

Newsflash. The historical narrative of scripture is the ONLY source that can be trusted entirely. It’s God’s word after all. He owns all copyrights, just like the KJV 1611. Go ahead and copy it and pass it around.      😉

 

(ps- I do not apologize for such direct words/ Is my language strong? Nope. Not strong enough. Read the book of Jude lately or the 1st of Romans?)

    Excellent post!

    Atheists can understand what the Bible says, but once they accept it as true they can no longer remain Atheists. Since Atheists so much congratulate themselves for being Atheists (their intelligence, their courage, their natural right to rule over the superstitious,….), they have a serious bias against the Bible. Yet the Bible is part of the historical record. Every bit of evidence we have indicates the Bible is well preserved and startlingly accurate. When scholar apply the same standards to the Bible that they apply to other historical documents, we end up believing Jesus Christ is God.

          Where would you like to start? Genesis?
          The HGP has refuted any claim that Adam and Eve are the progenitors of the human race.

          EDIT TWO CENTS (This topic has been addressed on this very blog. Mr Collins will one day admit his errors, and agree that Mr and Mrs Adam were actual and factual, thus proving once again every word and Truth of Genesis.

          But it is telling that otherwise you have no use for Christians such as Collins; especially when he easily speaks of the resurrection from the dead.)

          And the NT ….
          Based on known evidence, and agree upon by the consensus of modern day historians and biblical scholars, (EDIT: you mean modern day salespeople who don’t know Genesis from Revolution) the long ending of gMark is a forgery and there are three known versions of the long ending. The writer of gMatthew used gMark as a template, including around 600 verses lifted directly from gMark, some almost verbatim, and merely added to it, with such nonsense as the rising of the dead saints at the time of the crucifixion.
          This means that in the original gospel, g Mark, there were no Resurrection appearances. (EDIT: 10 sighs and a dozen head slaps. Nooooo, there are no such things as false apostles huh?)

          Anything else you would like to discuss, Tom?
          Now you have the opportunity to offer a counter-argument.

          There are also folks who think mitochondrial DNA studies demonstrate we all have a common female ancestor. Such studies cannot address the male side of our heritage.

          Anyway, I never have looked into any of these studies in much detail. I expect the math for those studies is way over my head. I also think it extremely difficult to validate such studies. I just put them into the category of “that’s interesting”.

          The original manuscripts are long gone, but the Old and New Testaments contain relatively few copying errors. That is actually quite remarkable. Clerics diligently copied the documents, but they rarely messed with them. We know that because of the high degree of agreement between copies from all around the world. Therefore, we just have a few sections that people wonder about like the end of Mark or the story of the adulterous woman that Jesus forgave, and it is no secret Christians wonder about these sections.

          What do we make of the differences that do exist? Well, we cannot entirely explain them, but they don’t change doctrine. So they don’t seem to much matter. It just proves the original manuscripts, not the copies we make (and the translations), were divinely inspired. So some human error was inevitable so we have to thank God for the fact there was so little.

          Bottomline: If we want to understand the Bible, we had better read the whole thing and compare translations. Otherwise, we risk missing the overall message.

          Copying erroneous text doesnpt suddenly magic any more veracity into what was written in the originals whether there are a thousand exact copies of a million, any more than millions of copies of a JK Rowling book will make it any more factual..

          There is no wonder about the long ending of gMark. Well, long endings, it is an interpolation – a fraudulent addition which gMatthew then incorporated into his fleshed out version, that included such nonsense as the Virgin Birth narrative, lifted from Isaiah 7:14, and the silly tale of Saints rising from their graves, and which already contained 600 (EDIT CANT RESIST: This is precisely why men must search hell or high water to try to scrap scripture. So called silly-tales must be met with silly crimes. Scripture stands alone and the voice of truth itself cries through all dirty hands who try to dismiss it, I tire of all the ‘critics’ who are clueless) erses lifted from gMark – some almost verbatim.

          Error is not the same as intentional fraud.
          It is obvious to anyone prepared to be totally honest that the gospels were :
          a) Written for specific audiences
          b) Thus, the story developed as each gospel came into being.
          c) Were unlikely originally meant to be a collection.

          Bottom line, scholars have been reading the whole thing for centuries and this is how they know these things.

          Much like the virgin birth, the resurrection appearances were a later addition to Christian doctrine.

          It was simply an invention by whoever wrote gMatthew.

          It seems to me you have unsubstantiated assertions confused with fact. Our feelings about something are not facts.

          I didn’t come to the point where I believe the Bible because I wanted to do so. I did not want to believe the Bible. It seemed like an absurd nuisance. God died on a cross for sinners?!!!!!!!!! What kind of God would do that?

          When the Bible requires me to do something I don’t want to do, that is highly inconvenient. That is why Atheism and Agnosticism are so popular.

          I came to believe the Bible because the Gospels and the rest of it explain the great puzzle we call Life. It was only after that that, after I realized the Bible presents facts we need and fits and explains the facts we already have that I began to see the possibility that I too need a Savior.

          Here is a sample. We know Jesus lived. We know that His apostles and disciples (people who knew Him or knew people who knew Him) wrote the New Testament within decades after His resurrection. We know the Jews and the Roman Empire persecuted the Christians, martyring millions. Yet the Roman Empire slowly became Christian because the people at the risk of their lives believed the testimony of the Christians.

          The people of the Roman Empire saw at least two things:
          1. Solid answers to the big questions: –Why am I here?
          –What is right and wrong?
          –What brings me meaning
          –What happens to a human being when I die?
          2. A God who loves us.

          For thousands of years people have carefully studied the Bible. Each generation tries, but we can’t find anything wrong with it. You think you are going to do so now. LOL! You are pissing into the wind.

          Being familiar with you and your cadre of loyal opposition to scripture; having had endless conversations with you regarding every topic under the sun, you cry for ‘evidence’ or ‘proof’ that God’s word is as good as God Himself; after presenting scripture as the ONLY answer to thedeep issues of life, what pray tell, WHAT EVIDENCE do you demand other than scripture itself, which deftly and perfectly portrays the origin of life, mans history, God’s response to the good creation He made, and mans destiny, complete with scriptures accurate assessment of YOU.

          Right, an idiot telling you that the works is 3/4 % water as a reminder.

          I just handed you true science: things testable and repeatable, not even to mention observable- it’s you who has an issue with water, not me.

          Any idea WHERE all that water came from, those fountains of the great deep which scripture so illustriously presents?

          Then we are done here today yes. I’ll just pitch my tent with He who is the Truth who also spoke of the deluge as a historical certainty.

          Seems the word of the week has been ‘history’ in many places. Yeah, history, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

          And scripture neither lies nor fails. Bye now.

          So Collins is right about HGP and Adam, but wrong about Christianity? We have to respect his judgement on one matter and not the other? Or is it your judgement we are really talking about?

          When I determine what is Truth I try to be modest about it. Should I be modest, or should I follow your example?

          I think I should accept the consequences of my decisions and let others accept the consequences of their decisions. I don’t think I should run around insisting anyone who doesn’t agree with me is an idiot, not that I am not tempted, not that I don’t occasionally let a poorly chosen word slip out.

          Other the hand, you seem to have a much higher opinion of yourself. I have yet to see why you think it’s merited. Still, I wonder. If this is the way you treat others, should I assume it is the way you want to be treated?

          Fair points Ct- we all on occasion slip in the mud- at least we know we should clean up before sitting on the couch-

          I have said the same thing re people who find believers ‘useful’ to their cause, as long as they agree.

          Between you and me, the word of God tells us there was a first Adam, and there was a last Adam. The context is obvious.

          The Alpha and Omega does not lie. He is not subject to editors and review boards by people with agendas. 😉

          Thank God for that last Adam, or we would have no idea what it is to be freed from the mud.

          It is not solely Collins as I explained. There were a great many geneticists working on the HGP
          The evidence proves that there never was a bottleneck that resulted in a single breeding pair of humans, A.K.A Adam and Eve as per the biblical tale. That is simply nonsense.

          When I determine what is Truth ….

          If your ”Truth” conflicts with evidence then your ”Truth” needs to adapt, otherwise it isn’t ”Truth.”
          Once upon a time the earth was considered the centre of all things and everything revolved around it.
          Evidence proved this belief wrong.
          As Adam and Eve were once thought to be the original progenitors of humanity, evidence has demonstrated this ”Truth” no longer holds – any more than a 6000 year old earth, and humans and dinosaurs co-existing.
          This is what science does.
          It is how we put men on the moon and discovered it wasn’t made of cheese.

          I firmly agree, you should accept the consequences of my decisions.
          After all, the greatest freedom is to accept the consequences, is it not?

          But where you are wrong at least demonstrate this modesty by accepting the evidence and acknowledge it.

          Well, you have it all figured out. Wish I could say that, but I don’t know that much. So I guess I will have to ask you a few questions.

          What kind of data did the HGP collect? Is it sufficient for what you claim?

          How would someone use the HGP go about proving that all the human race had not descended from just one man and one woman? Keep in mind you are trying to prove a negative.

          How does anyone validate a scheme for proving what supposedly did not happen thousands of years ago? Keep in mind your proof is based upon the claim you understand how DNA behaves when the population explodes and then is reduced after Noah’s Flood and explodes again.

          Good points Tom- The very evidence that people cry there is a shortage of, is contained in the scriptures, and is affirmed in life via everyday experiences.

          People are the same in any age, albeit, technology changes for the better or worse, still, God’s word has proved consistent and especially answering the deep questions of life, that we need not guess, or be like plastic boats in a tsunami.

        • Ark, I see you’re familiar with Collins’s views. So why do YOU say the HGP proves something he specifically says it does not prove: https://youtu.be/VpIiq_JmS68 (7 min).

  4. LOL! This must be a joke. I’ll laugh simply because “a merry heart is good medicine.” It says that in one of my history books. 🙂

      Yes, intelligent. Oh how the godless would take an eraser to scripture pretending the historical narrative is not true.

      I would hang my head in shame if I promoted Pilate, Herods, Caesar, Felix, Timothy, Saul/Paul, Daniel, Esther, and Christ Himself as mere stories meant to entertain the kiddies.
