How can we know that the authors of the Bible were telling the truth? Maybe they had an agenda – some kind of plan to take over the world or control people’s thinking and behaviour.
Of course, the record doesn’t bear that out. The Bible is brutally honest and calls people to use their minds. The Bible also calls people to serve and not control.
The best presentation I have heard on this topic was given by Herb Montgomery.* He presents compelling evidence in a fair and balanced manner. Take a listen.
