New DVD—Is the Bible Reliable?
It’s hard to believe that the Bible has been the recipient of so much hostility in the last century. It is routinely ridiculed in schools and society at large as outdated and irrelevant to life. Many are the skeptics that hurl their disrespectful, contemptuous epithets and charges of “discrepancy” and “contradiction” against it. Indeed, respect for the Bible has waned significantly in American culture.
Yet, the Founders and architects of American government and life—almost to a man—were deeply committed to the essentiality of the Bible to the American way of life. The “Father of our Country” and first President, after taking the oath of office with his hand situated on an open Bible, then bent down and kissed the Bible. Declaration signer Dr. Benjamin Rush insisted that the Bible “should be read in our schools in preference to all other books from its containing the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public temporal happiness.” A host of other Founders held the same viewpoint. They would be incredulous at what has happened to our civilization.
How might we recover our way? We must do all we can to re-educate our fellow citizens and children with the truth. The criticisms, allegations, and charges leveled against the Bible are simply false. And Christians can be about the business of arming themselves and their loved ones with the truth, and then make every effort to impart that truth to others. We have a divine responsibility to defend God’s Word in the face of challenges to its integrity.
We at A.P. are continually striving to provide the public with tools to aid in achieving this responsibility. Our latest offering is an outstanding 10-lesson series on two DVDs by Eric Lyons demonstrating the reliability of the Bible. May I strongly urge you to take advantage of this important resource to strengthen your faith and the faith of those you love.
