If you are looking for opportunities to critique the authenticity, reliability, and authority of Scripture there are seemingly endless ways. The western hemisphere is a post-Christian, post-truth, post-authority world and one of the main affronts on the Christian worldview is an attack on the trustworthiness of that which inspired by God. How is it that we can know that what we have now is what the original authors wrote thousands of years ago? How can we be confident in light of so many accusations of corruption and confusion? How do we stand on the Word of God as that which is God-breathed and the sole infallible rule of practice and faith for the church today? That and more is what will be addressed by Wesley in this particular session.
There are many accusations against the sixty-six books that we refer to as The Bible. Allegations of contradiction, corruption, forgery, incoherence, and even immorality. Building on the case presented in the previous session this talk will discuss and address common objections and challenges against the reliability of Scripture.
