Why do Christians say the bible is proof of god?

just because something is written doesn't mean that it is true right?

Report as

Because the Bible was written by god through the hand of man. Try reading it sometimes, it may help you understand better.

I agree with you Mary. Basically they're saying that the bible is real because the bible says that it's real. One of my favorite quotes is by George Carlin - "Tell people that there's an invisble man in the sky that invented the universe and they'll believe you. Tell them that the paint is still wet, and they have to touch it to be sure."

That the point of Christians. If they can't answer your question they just say the bible says so! If asked if they have read it, they say they dont have to to know what it says. Not all, but a lot of Christians.

It is their truth just like the Talmud is the truth for the Jewish religion and the Koran is truth to the Muslim.
Not any of them know if their truth is the correct one but it keeps them happy.
The downside is they all keep trying to make their truth everybody's truth.

The same reason why we accept a history book as a legitimate source. God bless

Helpful (2) Fun Thanks for voting Comments (13)
Report as
But unlike most history books, the bible is so old, and so we can't be sure what parts are even true or not. We have no evidence to prove it actually happened (unlike the vietnam war, for instance).

But besides that, if you use logic, you'll see that the farther back you go into time, the less factual historical accounts become. Look at Greek mythology as an example.
This can be especially true when the people during that time were uneducated and poor.
Report as
I can't speak for anybody else but when I was in school the books we learned from were about 50% fiction. Ofcourse I did not know that until much later but it made it that much more difficult to accept the REAL truth.

Report as
Well, I'm 49 years old and my time in public schools taught me how to read & write but was not exactly what I would refer to as a time of enlightenment. A lot of what I was taught in history was a white washed version of the truth. I realize that many elementary school aged children are not prepared for some of the facts concerning our country's history but to tell blatant lies offends me. I guess that's why it bothers me that the bible is sold as a book of factual truth when in fact it is not. How someone wants to believe or worship or not is entirely up to them and none of my business. But when masses of people have been led to believe in something without any proof whatsoever and as a matter of fact at least some proof to the contrary, with all their hearts and souls, it puzzles me. At the least I find it interesting. At the most I find it terrifying.
Report as
I guess I have a lot to respond to, I will do my best. If I missed one, let me know, I do not wish to be rude to anybody. First for history books being update. I am not just referring to what you read in high school. But even sticking with the theory that history text get updated, there is a reason why we say, "history is written by the victors.". Also, we are using older texts to support it. Now Ian not saying it is not dated, of course it is. The style of writing was different then, we understood things differently back then, even our own views have changed. By that doesn't mean God can not speak to you through the Bible. How weak do we believe the Lord's word to be? I believe the Lord can speak to you in any number of ways, yes even through the Quaran. Now for the Bible, these were not mere stories. Paul's letters were true. Paul himself was a man who did not believe in Christ Jesus. Not only did he not believe but he went after the ones who followed The Way (term used before Christian was coined) and set out to destroy it. Believe his story or not, something had to happen for him to go from one of the top persecutors to the apostle he became. Going back to using older documents to support history text, there are those who claim the Dead Sea Scrolls do just that.

As for other religions, this is my personal belief

I just provided you various was to say house. Does this mean all this people are wrong; that this building with sectioned of rooms for various uses is a house, and nothing else. Oh course not, how ethnocentric could one be to say yes. So, I it does not bother me if you want to call our Creator God, zeus, shiva, or even the flying spaghetti monster (though I feel this term was coined out of disrespect). My point, each one of us do our best to understand our Creator. I believe Christianity is the way. Can a be wrong? Well none of use are perfect. Does my imperfections prove there is no God? I guess you will have to be the judge of that evidence, for me I find it to be a weak argument. I do believe that God does forgive our ignorance. If I believe in Monotheism, and there really is more than one, I believe my ignorance will be forgiven. But since I am Christian, I do believe in one God, but those who were ignorant was/will be forgiven.

As for going further into the past, one can not make such generalization, there are always exceptions. When one researches any subject matter, primary resources are just as vital as secondary sources; in many cases these primary resources are even considered to hold more authority then secondary sources. I would even be so bold to declare almost all, of not all, secondary sources rely on primary sources.
Report as
As for history being white washed, that is my point. These books are reviewed before thy are sent to the schools, but again my response is not limited to school textbooks. Even with that said it is not limited to history. What is I told you that I believe in this being that holds us to the earth. It is the reason why we fall when we trip, or why a sandbag goes to the ground when dropped of the back of the truck. But one can not see, touch, smell, hear, or taste this being. His name is ytivarg. Just in case you missed it, I am referring to gravity. But, because I used the term being, we are quick to dismiss me. But in essence if I asked for a definition of gravity, the number one answer I would get is, the force that keeps us to the ground. If I would ask about which of the five senses do we use to test if gravity is what causes us to fall, we can't. Now, do I believe in gravity, but There are elements of faith; and we accept these elements of faith. So my point, we accept what is written in other books because they have been scrutinized. Well, I would argue the Bible is receiving more scrutiny still yet today.
Report as
As for being the truth, the Word is the truth, and I have spoken of how I believe the Word is received. I believe one will go insane, if one is looking for literal stories. I am not saying there isn't literal stories, just it was written by man who was inspired by God. Just 400 years ago we believed in the 4 humors if the body as it regards to medical science, if this isn't proof of us being flawed nothing is. My point we did/ do the best we can to understand God with our current intellect. Can we be wrong, of course. But, again that does not prove there is no God.
Report as
Finally, I did not want this list in the other response, I notice a reference to being atheist. You should know that, as a Christian, it does not matter, I still love you both. Though you do not believe, I do wish the Lord blesses you both and your families. After all what kind of Christian would I be if I didn't.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Romans 1:19-28 KJV)

A lot of books have some truths in them. Look at all the historical fiction out there. The historical facts are right even if the actual story never happened. Religion is a type of circular logic, and those caught in the maelstrom don't want to be alone. So they try to suck you down with more "I believe so you must believe".

Christians say that the bible is proof of God's existence because they have been brainwashed to believe that and it gives them an excuse for every little thing that goes bad. Bad day?

For the preaching of the cross is to them foolishness: but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

It is also written;
1 Thessalonians 2:13
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectially worketh also in you that believe.

They've grown up having it held as the pinnacle of truth. There's even mandatory weekly reinforcement of this along with a large majority of the population lending credence to the claim.

Mandatory? What is the punishment? I would say, we gather weekly to be built up and to help each other, not for indoctrination and thought control. But what do I know; I suppose, as an outsider, your opinion is best, I am sure. Do you feel the same way about synagogue or ashram meetings?
Report as
Depending on your numbering, commandment 4 or 5 is your mandate for that weekly meeting, or at least some sort of special reflection on that day. The punishment, according to Catholics, is a little place called Hell. If Hell is not your cup of tea, in Numbers 15, God himself told Moses to stone a man for picking up sticks on the Sabbath.
I'm not an outsider. I had a lifetime of Catholic schooling and I still occasionally attend church. In fact I volunteered at an event there 2 weeks ago.

The study of logic and logical fallacies does not phase them.

Neither does snide critical remarks from unbelievers. We are used to atheists being sure they are right.

I would hope not; without a sense of humor we would all be mad.

Atheists don't say that they are right. They say that they do not know what is right, for the sheer lack of proof & acute presence of unknown. It's rather the militant apologetics who say that, "ONLY they are RIGHT & has the ABSOLUTE truth"!

Speak for your self bc some atheists try and shove their "logic" down other peoples throats and argue that they are right
Report as
I don't mean to project an image of rightness rather to offer insight and provoke thought. Logic plays a role in critical thinking of all truth for without logic we may well believe giraffes fly when we are not looking. Through logic we can compose a thought that can be consensually understood by those with the capacity to grasp concepts and other figures of thought through uniformity rather than random claimant non-sense. We have only developed those things we all agree are truth through the use of logic; To scrap the functionality of logic may be considered insane by the very logic people will use, in part, to defend the position as not insane. Logic does not have a terminal capacity by nature.

If you took a casual stroll in a lunatic asylum, you would find that all the insane always insists on being sane. But, does such claim make them so?

Truer words were never spoken. It blows my mind that seemingly intelligent people would believe with all their heart and soul in something that they have never seen, smelled, tasted, heard or touched!

Because the Bible is a very unique book, therefore it could not been written by humans, God inspired people with his words and humans just used their hand to record it in the Bible. And God is the sovereign ruler and he is the creator of everything, of course he knows us the best. If you buy an electronic, you would also refer to manual which is written by the manufacturer of the product wont you? And God has written the Bible to benefit us (Romans 15:4). Why Bible is a unique book that cant be from man? For example The famous book of Isaiah 40:22 says that He is dwelling above the circle of the earth. Which shows that the planet Earth was round shape, and that book was written in 732BCE, do you think that time people knew the shape of the Earth? They were thinking that the Earth is flat or these kind of thoughts. Until 20th century people started to find out the real shape of the Earth is rounded. And all these dates, years, can be confirmed by the archaeologists. Which shows that the Bible was not written by man, but for sure by God.

For a self-proclaimed Christian, you're awfully judgemental Nikki. And to quote you from a different comment: "...Speak for your self bc some atheists try and shove their "logic" down other peoples throats and argue that they are right" That is EXACTLY what you are doing sweetheart.

Yea because it's truth. And there is PLENTY of proof that god exists. Also hunny I wasn't always the way I am now I was once just like you. Didnt believe and thought that if there was a god he hated me and I despised him for what he made go through. But then I got saved and started livin right and every thing changed for the better. Oh and I'm not that judgmental now, back then I was VERY judgmental and hateful. Before I was born again I would have verbalized or in this case typed every thing that I thought of you but one I AM a Christian and none of it should come out of a ladies mouth. Just sayin

@nikki Isn't it so easy to "shove logic down other peoples throats" when it is the truth? And their is no scientific proof that god exists. And just because you thought god hated you before you turned doesn't mean rubym thinks that; again you show your judgmental side. And holding your tongue while you curse at a person is only making you slobber while you insult them.

Well, yes. Just because something is written doesn't mean that it's true. However, the Bible is almost constantly being proven true. Evidence of the Bible's accuracy is found in archaeology, history, and even science. For instance, the Bible mentions in Genesis the fountains of the great deep. Underwater fountains weren't discovered until the 1940s. It records in Job that the earth hangs from nothing. How could they have known that thousands of years ago? It also records in Job that "the Lord sits on the circle of the earth." In other words, it says that the earth is round. Guess what? The earth is indeed round. It records in Luke that the earth rotates on its axis. Again, how could they possibly have known all these things unless they were inspired by an all-knowing being? There's no way they could have. The Bible demads a divine author - an all-knowing God.

Hope this helps - Zack

They use circular logic in that claim:
-The bible is proof of god.
-The bible is true because god wrote it.
Circular logic is a logical fallacy where the conclusion of an argument is used as the premise for the same argument.
