An Introductory Note

by Kenneth W. Hawthorne

Many Christians make extraordinary claims about the Bible, God, sin, hell, heaven, salvation, miracles, etc, and put pressure on others to adopt their beliefs. In other words, they are trying to sell us an extraordinary bill of goods that they think we need. And we, as potential buyers, have every right to be skeptical and ask hard questions  and expect rational, convincing answers. If these types of answers are not forthcoming, we have every right to reject what they are selling. Always remember that the burden of proof is squarely on the person making the claim, especially an extraordinary claim.

This blog is about whether the Bible is the inerrant, verbally inspired word of God or not, and by extension whether Christianity is valid or not.

I plan to post articles that I have written as well as articles written by others. Some posts may be nothing more than a short quote that I think is interesting, informative, or gets a point across in a  humorous or incisive way. I will also probably comment on articles from church websites, especially those close to where I live. The blog will probably do some evolving.

I especially wanted to start this blog because there is a lot of information that Christians, especially fundamentalist Christians, are not aware of.
