Episode 14: Slavery, Genocide, and Rape: Is the Bible Immoral?, Part 2

“The bible can’t be from God because it condones immorality!”

In part 2 of this series, Russell and Sean show how the presuppositions behind this criticism actually undermine the critic’s own argument. In order for the Bible to condone immorality, moral truth has to exist. We all know it does, but an atheistic view of reality can’t account for moral truth. We show how the atheist’s attempts to reconcile this contradiction lead to hypocrisy and absurdity. Ultimately, the critic complaining about the morality of God’s word is borrowing capital from the christian’s worldview in order to argue against it. He’s also showing that what the Bible says about him is true: He already knows God exists.
