On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/10/20), Hank discusses in the second segment the claim made by many world religions that their holy book is the real authority. Muslims point to the Qur’an as the real authority and Mormons likewise are certain that the Book of Mormon is “the most correct of any book on earth” and “the keystone” to their religion. But neither book holds up to scrutiny. Hank points out the faulty ethics and factual errors in the Qur’an and lacking archeological and anthropologic evidence for claims made by the Book of Mormon. Despite the deficiencies of their own sacred texts, Muslims and Mormons brashly denigrate the Bible as a crooked stick that cannot be trusted. So Hank gives four quick points to show the trustworthiness of the Bible.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Why are some verses missing or labeled in footnotes like John 5:4?
- Was the punishment for adultery always death in the Old Testament? What was the penalty for giving false testimony?
