Hotseat – Blog Q & A on the Bible

The Bible…some don't trust its accuracy, but even those who do perhaps don't read it as much as they should.

That's why we devoted Part 2 of Hotseat to responding to this question: how do we know the bible is reliable?  You can watch the message here, and we've also included a short bonus interview with my friend Robert Singh who continues to ask some great questions about the Bible that didn't get addressed in Sunday's message.  Watch it below.

Still got questions? Fantastic! Ask them below. We'd love to continue the conversation!

    Hey guys,

    I heard one preacher compare the bible to corrective lenses. So I wear contacts so they can help me see clearly. The bible helps make things clear that were previously unclear or unknown.

    Now, I see my optometrist on occasion. While he has me looking through that contraption he has I’ll read letters off the chart and sometimes what happens is I’ll think a certain letter is an N. The optometrist will flip a lens and that N actually becomes an H. They’re very similar in appearance, but quite different in usage.

    So reading the english bible will help make things clear and along the way, Carey (or other experts) will help fine tune some of the original words and what they actually mean.

    I hope that makes sense!

      Haven’t heard that analogy before Josh. Appreciate you sharing it! The challenge is of course, that preachers can make the word more blurry as well as help bring it into focus. Some of the harshest words in the New Testament are reserved for false teachers. That’s a good warning for those of us who preach and teach.
