Three Popular Avenues to Truth

The Bible claims to be the word of a super intellect, a morally perfect God who is prepared to give us reasons to believe Him. Consider three popular avenues to truth and how the Bible relates to them.

1. History

The first avenue to truth is history. Applying the ordinary rules of historical investigation to the Bible’s claims often yields surprising results. For instance, the Bible turns out to be the best attested literary work in history. The biblical text has not undergone radical revision; the Bible appears to have survived unchanged. Moreover, countless archaeological discoveries confirm the biblical record, while nothing discovered so far throws any biblical claim into serious question. Internally, there are countless unmistakable signs of authenticity. In short, the Bible appears wholly reliable.

2. Science

The second popular avenue to truth is science. As with historical investigation, modern science has discovered much that confirms the biblical record. This is especially true with respect to the biblical doctrines of special creation and the global flood. Science, popularly claimed to be disconfirming of the Bible, turns out to be one of Christianity’s greatest allies. In fact, the modern scientific enterprise (and all its attending benefits) owes its very existence to the Christian faith commitments of its founders.

3. Philosophy

The last popular avenue to truth is philosophy. Philosophers seek to discover objective standards of right reason and right moral conduct. Only God, however, can account not only for the existence of such standards, but our awareness of them. In this way, the strongest argument for the existence of God is that without Him, no one can prove anything!

Conclusion: God is a Rational Necessity

In summary, we may say that history, science, and philosophy serve to confirm the biblical record. On the other hand, however, unless God provided what was needful, there could be no profitable historical, scientific, or philosophical inquiry in the first place. In the last analysis, God is a rational necessity. Part of the CARE team’s purpose is to defend this radical claim with sound arguments and evidence, which is part of Christ’s marching orders for the church (1 Peter 3:15; Jude 3).
