According to a New York Times bestselling Author, Vincent Bugliosi, “A 2006 Newsweek poll showed that 92 % of Americans believe in God, 4 percent are atheists and 2% are agnostics. Mr Bugliosi stated that He is agnostic but only on matters related to whether there is a God, a supernatural being who created the Universe” This is the thought of many others who have a problem with whether the Bible is infallible or not. In 2000 a great philosopher named Williams Edelen, (2000) wrote an article titled “The Bible and the Gullible”, in which He rails against anyone who would be silly enough to believe that the Bible is without errors and contradictions. Edelen stated that “there is neither one major theological seminary nor one Department of Religion in any major university that teaches that the Bible is infallible. He calls it “nonsense”, However, I will not go that far. Anyone here ever had a recall on an item that they have purchased? Cars, appliances, food products, beauty products and even items of clothing are sometimes recalled and replaced due to the lack of perfection in humans that were behind their production. Most of us know excellent Driver, Teachers, Hairdressers, Authors, Pilots, Dentist, Doctors and others in great successful careers, But, can we say these various categories of professional have never made mistakes or misrepresented themselves? . As humans, we are not perfect and never were, we do not function in a perfect world with a perfect timeframe for everything. And that’s the premise on which I refute the infallibility of the bible. The people who wrote the various chapters of the bible were humans thus there is room for lies, exaggeration, 5 minutes of fame moments, among other reasons which clearly stares at us when we consider that these were “Men”, “Mortal Men”. Miracles are possible but every story doesn’t have to be accurate, the gospel is the divine words of God, but distortions are possible. Most Apologetics defend their reasoning by saying that it was eye witness account; However Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were not always at the same place at the same time and did not all started out as disciples at the same time. Did they have the same access to Jesus at all times? I it possible that they misinterpreted or just didn’t hear every word He said? What if they had ulterior motives and just refused to relay the messages He gave them for His people.>GET ANSWER
