LIBERTY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF DIVINITY Research Paper Topic: Biblical Criticism: Arguments For and Against Submitted to Dr. Michael Vlach In partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of THEO 525 – B05 Systematic Theology I by April Johnson September 24, 2018 Thesis Statement In order to properly defend one’s belief in the knowledge of God, one must know the opposition that is being argued against the Bible regarding its accuracy and truthfulness. In addition, one must also know the most often used arguments for the Bible in response to these arguments. The Need for The Study The need for this study is to know what arguments are being presented against the very existence of God and the truth of the Bible. In today’s society, there is a rising the existence of atheism and questions among believers as to the existence of God, or even that God is the one true God. Using the research information, this paper will attempt to find and define the arguments and criticisms of the Bible and its truthfulness as a divinely inspired record of events. The Procedure for The Study This research paper will identify arguments against the Bible such as the accuracy of events described, the unbelief or the inability to prove events told in the Bible are true, and more. The research will identify some critics by name and their theories. The research will identify arguments made in defense of the Bible and responses to these defenses. The research will also identify arguments made against the validity of the Bible and responses to these arguments. The research done in this paper will identify Biblical and theological terms, including apologetics which is the study of defending beliefs that are objected to. The research in this paper will explore this concept of apologetics, in order to know how to structure argument in defense of the Bible and Christianity The research in this paper will present at the end of discussion, whether or not the thesis statement is correct.
