Why Do Humanists Reject The Bible?
it because there are contradictions in the Bible?
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." - from the American Humanists web site

There is no good reason to
reject the Bible. Every objection, contradiction and question has been answered
hundreds, and many times well over a 1000 years ago. But humanists refuse to even
consider that their questions have been answered, and continually bring up the
same old "contradictions" over and over.
The issue is not one
of showing the Bible is reliable. The issue is a heart issue. Those who reject
the Bible are not doing so for any rational reason. They simply do so because
they don't want it to be true. They don't want to be accountable to God.
The Light has come into the world, and men loved the
darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. - John 3:19
humanists wanted to truly demonstrate there are contradictions in the Bible, they
would state the contradiction, and then give the Biblical response that refutes
it (not strawman responses), and then refute that response But, I've never seen
that type of a scholarly, sound refutation given... Humanists seem to like to
do "hit and run," often without even fully explaining their supposed
The Bible stands as God's truth.
show you that the contradictions, objections, and questions humanists have raised
about the Bible are generally non-existent or have been answered, as time allows
we will answer objections posted on the American Humanist web site. For me I find
this to be fun. It demonstrates how wonderful it is to be a Christian... and that
we have the answers. Not only to objections raised by humanists, but to life's
greatest problems. Jesus Christ is THE answer.

If you've read all of
the above answers to supposed contradictions in the Bible, I hope you
are starting to see that the claim that these are "contradictions" is
ridiculous. If the humanist who made the list had done just a little research,
they'd have had the answers. But, I've found that most humanists are not interested
in answers. All they want to do is to attack God. It does not matter if their
attack has any truth to it or not.
If you are a humanist, be honest.
Actually seek after truth instead of seeking the destruction of God. You cann't
destroy or kill God. That's a losing battle. So be honest with yourself and seek
truth... the whole truth.
