Apologetics

This page serves to defend Christianity and the authority of Biblical scripture from a literary, historical, philosophical, and scientific perspective.  Credibility of the Bible is contingent upon its consistency, plausibility, historical accuracy, and scientific assertions.  Most attacks against the Bible target the alleged contradictions, its historical accuracy, its scientific plausibility, and philosophical assertions.  For this reason, these key genres will be addressed in all their nuances in defense of the Bible.

As science dissolves mysteries and superstitions with experimentation and empirical evidence, Biblical authority is consequently brought into examination under the microscope (as it should be).  Either it will implode under the scientific method or be bolstered by it.  For this reason, a portion of the articles are solely oriented for addressing these types of issues.

Secondly, the possibilities for contradictions seem vast for such a large text as the Bible, but when context and the intended purpose of each passage are brought into perspective, the contradictions will either become more apparent or vanish altogether.

Similarly, although historical documents are not entirely accurate, they will either prove to be compatible with Biblical history or contradictory.

Lastly, the Bible assumes certain things to be evident and true, as do all worldviews.  The philosophical arguments have the power to either abolish all reason to believe in Biblical inerrancy or promote its precepts to the pinnacle of rational thinking.
