Letter: The gospel truth
Monday 27 December 1999
The acceptance of all parts of the Bible story as fact is the basic tenet of the Christian religion. The Bible relates the proof of an omnipotent God; if the Bible is wrong then religious belief can be sustained but belief in the father, son and holy ghost becomes untenable.
Christian attempts to defend their faith in the face of rational scientific analysis by claiming that the Bible as fact is unimportant are signs of a Church attempting to sustain itself in a world where fact is gaining the upper hand and primitive belief systems are confined to recreation.
