Do you need to read another Book to know if the Bible is True?

It never fails.  Whenever I get into a debate with a Christian regarding the Bible, they refer me to some other book to understand why the Bible is true.  So let me get this right:  I need to read some man’s book to understand what the Creator of the World is saying to me??

I don’t buy it.

Dear Christian:

Let’s imagine that you are in a discussion with a Mormon regarding the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, and the Mormon tells you this:  “If you really want to understand the truths of the Book of Mormon you need to read books X, Y, and Z, written by highly educated Mormon scholars.”  What would be your response?  I would bet that you would say something like this:

“I don’t need to read anyone’s book to know that the Book of Mormon is nothing more than a superstitious tall tale.”

And I have the same response for you, dear Christian friend.  I don’t need to read some Christian apologist’s book to see for myself all the errors, contradictions, scientific inaccuracies, and supernatural tall tales in the Bible.  The Bible is an ancient book full of the silly superstitions of ancient, scientifically-ignorant people.  Nope.  I don’t need to read some man’s book to know that the Bible is false.
