Why is the Bible always an object of debate?

August 20, 2007 2:09am CST
There's a saying that only trees that bears fruit get stoned. Is this true with the Bible? There are a lot of religiuos books around but they pale in comparison to the Bible when it comes to circulation, discussion, etc.

I think the claims alone are enough to engage many in a debate. The claims of God speaking, the origin of life, the authority of his Word, Jesus Christ as savior, the resurrection, eternal life and so forth. Also the amount of prophecy fulfilled is incredible. I've heard there's about 1000 prophecies in the Bible with around 500 of them already fulfilled. Apart from this though is the fact that God claims ultimate authority and creation of the universe. Man wants to rebel against this and put himself as the ruler which of course will cause a lot of debate from those who don't believe what God says or that there is even a God.

Because in the bible God says, that there is NO OTHER way to get saved, than through his son, Jesus Christ. Do you say YES to that?

Because Jesus Christ is the most controversial figure of our history; and Christianity is considered as the true 'religion' closest to the one true God. It depicts history, morality, spirituality plus it's main course-- the salvation of man through Jesus Christ which is incomparable to any religions of the world.

It seems to me that some people strongly believe.. and others strongly don't believe.. which strongly suggests it's more than an intellectual argument!
