Need a Different PerspectiveRecently an evolutionist asked me for scientific evidence for the Bible:
Cornelius, can you provide any scientific evidence that shows that everything in the bible is inerrant, and is the 'word of God'? Can you even show, scientifically, that either one is "probable"?
This blog is about evolution, but it is worth exploring this question. It is a tricky question because not only is the Bible a long book, but it covers a wide range of topics. There is prophecy, poetry, drama, wisdom literature, history, laws, and creation, to name a few. And a great deal of this material is not something that we would think one subjects to scientific scrutiny.
For example, if your friend told you “I think she loves me,” would you ask for scientific evidence? The Bible is a revelation of God to man. It tells us that God loves us. No matter what you think or have been told, God loves you. He loves you so much that Jesus endured a terrible fate and died a gruesome death in order to save you. He is your savior. So the Bible is a story of love and forgiveness. It is a story of how God saves sinners.
Unfortunately there are those who never will accept this message.
