An Informed Opinion

Where do you stand?

Have you seriously thought about the veracity of the Bible and whether or not the God of the Bible is real and true? Well do you have an opinion based on feelings and what seems understandable and right to the human mind – in this case yours? Could you defend your position? Either way, the Bible claims and stories contain way more than a quick briefing can afford. It's claims are quite astounding and have the potential to change lives – yes and save lives. If these claims are not true then don't you think you owe it to the rest of the world to be able to give an accounting of why you disagree or simply don't believe?

Is truth something that should be taught to our children and to all people? How can we ever hope for peace or change for the better if we don't know what truth is? Many have claimed that the Bible is the true Word of God. I think we should have an informed opinion about it. If it's false, then it's a pack of lies. But if true............. it is the staple of life.

Going over someone else's opinion is second-hand knowledge, which is unreliable at best. I don't think we do ourselves justice to let someone else do the thinking for us. There is a prevailing attitude in our own country of independence (we like to think we make our own decisions based on our own knowledge and intelligence). How can we justify convicting or exonerating the truth or deception of the Bible without careful deliberation and a study of it's claims? How can I let someone else do my thinking for me on a matter of such reputed importance?
