He does not take the aproach of debating whether of not the bible is authorative, infallible, or inerrant. Instead he simply states that atheists and agnostics do not (usually) accept the bible as authorative.
So you need to understand that when you stop by Bruce Droppings on the latest leg of your apologetics tour and you quote some Bible verses to us….they don’t count for much. Your Bible quoting may get you Amen’s at Church or in Sunday School class…….but here at Bruce Droppings all you might get is a “so what.”As a matter of fact, when I get a long comment that is mostly scripture quotes, I gloss over the scripture quotes. Why? Because for one, I've already read the bible. And two, I don't accept the bible as authorative. In my perspective, just because the bible says it, does not mean that it has to be true.
Don't get me wrong. The bible does have some good things to say. However, there's alot of junk in there too. That's the case with all three of the holy books that I have read. As long as there is more junk than good, I can't call the book authorative.
