A Question: Why Do Humanists Reject The Bible?
Is it because there are contradictions in the Bible?
Humanists state on their web site: "The Bible is an unreliable authority because it contains numerous contradictions. Logically, if two statements are contradictory, at least one of them is false. The biblical contradictions therefore prove that the book has many false statements and is not infallible."
Is this true? Absolutely not. On these web pages we go through each accusation, contradiction, claim, and question raised on the humanist web page, in the order they are raised. Click here for the subject index. Every one is answered.
The reason why humanists reject God and the Bible is not because there are contradictions in the Bible or unanswered questions... it is because they do not want to be accountable to the God who created them. This is plain in scripture: "This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil." - John 3:19
Job describes them in Job 21:13-15 "They spend their days in prosperity, and suddenly they go down to Sheol (hell). They say to God, ‘Depart from us! We do not even desire the knowledge of Your ways. Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him, and what would we gain if we entreat Him?'" Job is the oldest book in the Bible. Rejection of God is nothing new. People reject God... even reject all knowledge of God. Yet God is patient and loving. He continues to give everyone second chance after second chance to turn from their own desires... to give up the empty excuses and accept the free gift He offers.
