I chose to be strengthened and the reason is very simple. It's in the Bible and we are told about this two thousand years ago that some will give up their faith in the last days and turn away from God (1 Timothy 4:1) 'These' people God spoke about are believers. As you examine this letter by Apostle Paul to Timothy, the people that going to turn away are not just ordinary believers, they are people who are religious leaders.
We believe in the Bible. We don't go and keep records of the names of pastors, evangelists, etc who have given up their faith and to also keep names of ex-Buddhists, ex-Muslims, ex-Hindus who have become Christians and then make our decision whether we should continue with our faith or to give up our faith. This is totally irrelevant.

Inerrent word of God? really?well ok i gave it another look and realise yes there are some words of God there but which are the ones that are and which are the ones that were added by errant men who write these scriptures with their own hands and say this is from God?
?"If God had meant for us to receive the miracle of the bible, why did he not perform the miracle of preserving it?"Bart Ehrmann
I bet you havent seen the Bart Erhmann video.
either you are right and every single scientists in major reputable universities is wrong or, every scientists is right and you are wrong. what are the odd?
Psalm wrote :You can give another thousand names, but still cannot prove that God doesn't exist and Bible is not the word of God
no need for a thousand names .You have skirted the issue yet again .have you seen the Bart Erhman video at all? do you know how the bible had come to be written?you dont i bet.
thats your proof! what other proof do you need that the bible was corrupted by men centuries after Jesus? Or was Bart ERrhman just telling lies? in which case he should be censured in his own bible belt uni in NC.
When you are seeking knowledge who or what do you turn to? you go to the library the bookstore etc. and look for some books.
Now if you have a question regarding the books that you are reading then obviously you consult the experts in that field .The author, the scholars the people who have studied the book and its history inside and out and if you still not happy with their findings then you consult other experts other scholars until you find a reasonable or an acceptable answer. It may not be palatable which in the case of the bible is very..
but you do not want to live a lie your whole life and find that all that you did was in vain.
