Is the Bible Literally True?
No, of Course Not!
Most people could care less whether it is or it isn't. If you're reading this, however, you probably care at least enough to read this.
To me, the Bible is important. It is for me the sacred story of the origins of my faith. In light of this, I could no more feel as if it were unimportant than a follower of Hinduism would feel the Bhagavad Gita is unimportant.
I do not believe, however, that the Bible is a Divinely-dictated book or a sacred text without error.
That was the beginning to an article by [Dr. Steve McSwain] on [The Huffington Post] that was published on [March 14, 2014], and I highly recommend reading the rest of the article—regardless of whether or not you currently could NOT care less about what Dr. McSwain has to say. For you should care a lot about what others have to say about our Heavenly Father and the trueness of His Holy Scriptures.
Alas, do you not find it quite telling that such a learned person as Dr. McSwain could open with such a stupid line? For it is could not care less—not could care less.
No, I do not mean to be insulting—certainly not in regards to messing up a line. For I do it quite often, and it upsets me greatly when my mistakes are not realized until after they have been published.
Nonetheless, the use of stupid is most appropriate when someone knows not what they are saying, much in the same way as when someone is in a drunken stupor. Such is the case with this article by Dr. McSwain—be assured.
Yes, historical accounts of significant events by mere human eyewitnesses are important as educational resources, but do we not have a tendency to see what we want to see (and read what we want to read)? Subsequently, it is entirely possible for two different people to see vastly different things when watching an event unfold before their eyes, and even in cases when two different people see the same thing and write exactly the same things about it, two different people can read those accounts and come to (sometimes drastically) different conclusions.
Therefore, how can anything contained in our Heavenly Father's Holy Bible be of any great significance if it is merely a collection of ancient stories by people not so unlike ourselves? More importantly, how can we truly understand what His Holy Scriptures are meant to convey without the witness of His Holy Spirit to explain what is truly what? This is what Dr. McSwain is missing. May it not be his fault.
