So it seems like a few non Christians have just recently discovered Bart Ehrman and have decided to run with him
So who and what does Bart represent
Let's do a bio on the man, explaining who he is, his argument, why Bart turned from Christianity and why I see his argument is a failure
So Mr Ehrman is a New Trstament scholar, professor an NC Chappell hill, renounced evangelical Christian
Mr Ehrman has written or edited 30 odd books to date and many other articles
A true scholar of New Testament literature
In a nutshell
So,with all this knowledge (gnosis) studying the bible, Bart noted a few errors, what! errors in the bible
What, you can't say there are errors in the bible🙀
Well yeah there are, many Christians deny the bible has errors.
What are they, just search the net, there are plenty of sites...
Why does the bible has errors, well it's written in a couple of languages, thousands of years ago, by people, and people are notorious for making
mistakes, eye witness accounts and those eye witness accounts never match up when people are involved.
I am sure you can think and add a few different reasons why the bible has errors
So these errors in the bible plagued Bart and caused him to turn away from his faith
Yes, Mr Erhman had faith, sadly Erhmans faith wasn't in Jesus, Erhmans faith was in the bible not having errors, the bible being a perfect book
So many in the Protestan church have put the bible in Christs place, defending it, calling it perfect, idols ing the bible and it's stupid. It's a
book, only Jesus was perfect
The bible is a book, pointing to the perfect Jesus, our Lord and Savior (Obviously for Christians only). Some Christians look at the biblelike
Catholics look at the Pope, like it passes on decrees, like it is perfect and pure, like its Gods perfect word in the world, it's not. It's a sign
post, a street directory, an instruction manual, you need a modem of common sense and help to use the bible
It's funny, true Christians should have the Holy Spirit, God inside of us, expressing the fruit of the Holy Spirit and yet we never learnto listen and
trust Gods Spirit in us, we place a book on a pedestal
So, Ehrman was more interested in knowledge (Gnosticism) than living the Christian life, he placed the bible before Christ, his faith was in the
written word, not the living word.
The problems with the bibles accuracy lead him away from his faith and now Ehrman, once a teacher of the New Testament is an advocate against
Christianity, very hostile to the gospel and Christians
So if you see Bart Ehrman used around here, listen, comprehend, understand the argument, remember
Our faith as Christians is in Christ, not the bible
The bible is only a good book pointing to Jesus, it's not our pope, it holds no papal bulls, it's not perfect it didn't die for us, its not where we
put our faith, it's not Jesus
Don't be a Bart
