Attack on the Bible

Bart D. Ehrman says half of the new testament bible is a forgery.  Writer Bart Ehrman has been waging his war on God for many years now. Fact is, he admits that he started out once as a Bible believer but is now an agnostic.

This is the typical story of a person who has fallen away.  His book "Forged" is one more attempt to destroy people's faith in God.  Ehrman has already written 20 books on religious matters and won two Pulitzer prizes.
Stories like this pop up almost every other week.  They are part of the Devil's plan to weaken your faith in God.

Bart D. Ehrman says in his own words, "the Bible not only contains untruths or accidental mistakes. It also contains what almost anyone today would call lies."

It is the Devil who is a liar and the father of it. God is always on the side of the truth. 

Notice that few scientists say that Julius Caesar never existed.  However they seem to always say that Jesus of Nazareth never was.

What is the reason?  Well, most scientists are atheists who believe in evolution.  They lead lives filled with sin.  Trying to convince people that the bible is a forgery fits the pattern.  Notice that all the books written by Bart D. Ehrman are designed to sow the seeds of doubt about God and his word.

But, when asked about the Koran, Bart D. Ehrman said, "Out of concern for my personal safety, I don't say a thing."  He fears for his life. Well, Christians are not afraid to die, because they know there will be a resurrection. The author of FORGED is afraid because he knows full well that this life is the only thing he has.  After death comes judgment... and for some... the lake of fire.  That is the place where the Devil, the father of lies, is going.

Last Days

Paul says that in the last days scoffers will arise. These will mock the word of God.
2 Peter 3
3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
The Devil called God a liar when he spoke to Eve.  God told Eve not to eat of the forbidden fruit or she would die.  Satan however, assured her that she would not die.  Who do you believe?
Genesis 3
 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 
3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The fact is that Eve died, Adam also died as he also ate the fruit... and all their descendants die.  The Devil told Eve a lie, and he continues to lie.  Believing the Devil brings us suffering and eternal death.  He is a liar and the father of it.
John 8:44 
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts [desires] of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
