Thanks for agreeing lmao...
Seriously though you are not as far off as you might think...
Christianity is about two things. Choice and Faith.
Lets use Randyvs as an example(Sorry Randy)...
Randy has made a choice to believe the doctrinal foundation of Christianity. That is; Christ gave his life to reconcile humans to God. Randy stands on
that choice by faith. Just as the the two thieves on each side of Christ did before him. The whole bible could be "proven" false tomorrow, and Randy,
if he is strong in his faith and convictions, is still going to be a Christian. Why?
Because the very book he uses as a guideline, teaches him plainly, not to put his faith in the book, but rather the savior and God the book is
pointing him to.
My point being. For "true" Christians. It isn't about the book. It's about their God. The book is helpful, and convenient. But it isn't necessary for
a relationship with the Christian God.
I know when I've met a Christian man/woman of faith. You can take their bible from them forever, and they won't miss a step.
Proving the bible erroneous may crash the whole Christian structure of this world, but it won't affect those who actually understand what they've read
in it. They will still be the same Christian they were beforehand.
I hope that made sense. It's a hard concept to explain to some Christians. Let alone to unbelievers.
