William Lane Craig Concedes That Old Testament Stories Are Problematic

In a stunning admission, William Lane Craig, in response to a question sent to him has acknowledged that he has no good answer to problematic Old Testament stories. He says:

When people ask me what unanswered questions I still have, I tell them, “I don’t know what to do with these Old Testament stories about Noah and the ark, the Tower of Babel, and so on.” So I find myself in the same boat as you, Jon. I don’t have any good answer how to resolve these problems. Yet these unanswered difficulties have not kept me from Christian faith or from abandoning Christian faith. Why not?

Well, a large part of the reason, as you note, is that the truth of what C. S. Lewis called “mere Christianity” doesn’t stand or fall with such questions.

In essence, he’s claiming that the problems with the stories in the Old Testament should not effect some beliefs of Christianity, so it’s okay not to have answers to those questions. The problem here is that they do affect core Christian beliefs, namely the reliability of scripture, the truthfulness of scripture, the preservation of scripture and even salvation as it pertains to Jesus’s ability to hold or share false beliefs:

Since I have good reason to believe in his deity, as explained above, I would sooner admit that Jesus could hold false beliefs (that ultimately don’t matter) rather than deny his divinity.

Apparently Jesus who is God, can have false beliefs that “shouldn’t matter”. In other words, it’s okay if “God as a human”, was fallible with respect to his own theology! Quite the disaster this is.

Bible – The Greatest Story Book Ever!

While checking out a few book shops today, by happenstance I came across a Bible entitled, Baby’s First Bible. My curiosity got the best of me and while flipping through the pages I came across a pretty interesting page. On the last picture below, the publishers describe the Bible as the greatest story book ever! I cannot disagree, the Bible has stories that rival those of Cinderella, Game of Thrones and even Harry Potter.

It’s good to see that publishers are educating kids by being honest about the veracity and reliability of the Bible.

Dividing Infinity Into Three

During a discussion on Facebook, a Christian happened to mention that God is one, infinite and indivisible. Then he mentioned God was shared by three persons. For a moment I wasn’t sure what I had read. How was it possible that God was one, infinite and indivisible, but at the same time three and divisible (shared)? I think this meme summarizes the confusion I had.

So, any takers? How do I divide infinity into three?

Missionary Mishap: Pig Headed

Last week we covered the poor arguments of a young polemicist who tried to mimic one of Jonathan McLatchie’s atrocious arguments (which he later recanted). Unfortunately, this young and impressionable missionary, France Francis has done it again. He’s made the Missionary Mishap list for a second week running…

Unashamedly, this missionary considers people like Jonathan McLatchie and Sam Shamoun to be his heroes. That’s surely no surprise for anyone here.

Missionary Mishap – Copying Bad Arguments

Everyone wants to be a debater. Today, all it takes is a keyboard and adding a title to one’s name. In this case we have a callow missionary by the name of Evangelist France Francis. He has previously boasted that he is a friend of Jonathan McLatchie (a quick perusal of Jonathan’s timeline indicates that ‘France’ comments often on his page). With that said, while Jonathan has accepted that he made an error with regard to his claim that nowhere does Allah say: ‘I am God, Worship Me’ in the Qur’an, his young missionary friend has yet to get this memo:

As can be seen, Br. Mustafa Sahin an up and coming Muslim apologist and debater, knocks France the Evangelist out of the park. His Qur’anic reference directly refutes the missionary:

Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance. –20:14.

It truly is amazing just how fast bad arguments can spread. Even when the missionary you allegedly learn from recants his position, missionaries still insist on using those bad arguments. It’s quite embarrassing to say the least.
