"Stand to Reason" Christian Blog responds on the Inspiration of the New Testament

Gary’s comment:

We have no evidence from the Bible or anywhere else that God gave Christians a list of what is and what is not his Word! Christians have created an “inerrant, inspired, you-are-damned-to-Hell-if-you-don’t-believe-it” Holy Book based solely on the opinions of men living almost 2,000 years ago.

Bombshell: Christians have zero evidence that proves the New Testament of the Bible to be the Word of God; the inerrant message of the Creator of the Universe to mankind. Zero!

Stand to Reason Blog:

Gary,

It’s not really a bombshell. These questions have been asked for centuries, and people have thought through them. The inspired books were recognized as being inspired, not declared to be inspired. If you’re interested in hearing the arguments, you could try James White’s Scripture Alone.
All the best,

Amy H.

Stand to Reason

Gary:

Human beings are fallible.  So how can fallible human beings be 100% confidant that fallible human beings living 2,000 years ago were able to “recognize” the infallible Word of God?

Stand to Reason Blog:

Again, I recommend the book!

Gary:

So I need to read a book to prove that infallible men, almost 2,000 years ago, were able to select 27 infallible books out of 50 or more Christian writings floating around the Mediterranean in the first, second, and third centuries??

Amy.  Stop and think.  You are an educated person living in the 21st century.  You don’t need to read a book to figure this out.

  1. Gary how do you learn anything if you don't read a book, journal, blog or something else? Do you realize just how irrational you sound when you reject engaging your opponents suggestions for reading a particular book?

  2. You tell Amy you don't need a book to figure out your beliefs. But you copy and paste what others write over and over again. Sounds double minded. At least play by the same rules.

  3. I read NT Wright's 800's book, “The Resurrection of the Son of God” . I've read and listened to William Lane Craig's arguments. I've read Lee Strobel's articles. I've read Peter Kreeft's articles, and many other Christian arguments for the Resurrection. So to say that I have not read “the other side's” arguments is false.

    What I am saying is that you do not need to read a book to know that fallible men cannot select an infallible book. It is like telling someone that 2 + 2 = 5. You don't need to read a book to know that two plus two NEVER equals five.

  4. Does the fact you are an 'educated' 21st century person settle it all? The science you go by which you say determines what you believe, changes constantly. Or didn't you realize that?

    You are so sure you know it all and those goat herders talked gibberish. Your quote to someone on another post: “You are delusional, my friend. Sadly, you have been brainwashed to accept as unquestioned fact the superstitious gibberish of ancient, middle-eastern goat herders”. You Gary, jump from one belief to another unable to really know what is going on. You fit the profile of many raised in a fundamental belief system as you try to escape.
