How can we consider the bible credible?

How could we rely on what the bible tells us? Looking at the bible from a historical point of view, it has been translated over and over again into hundreds of different languages. Over the years kings and rulers have altered and manipulated aspects to suit their reign. Even today there are multiple different interpretations. What effects do you think this has on the content?

  • Apr 24 2013: May I post a link to our approach/meaning to the literal text of the Scriptures? This, in no way, is the only answer or the only way. It is an option and is given for those that are open for it.

    This is our Doctrine of the Sacred Scripture, and only shows how credible we think the Bible is

      • Apr 24 2013: On the page I got, indeed looked empty except for one line:

        Click here ("here" is the blue link) to download your file.

        Don't ask me why this is. Whenever I'm on Google it is https.. and when I leave a link that I have to take away that security 's'. I've stopped asking Google because no one is home :)

        Very much hope this works
        cheers
        If not, this is another link http://webhome.idirect.com/~abraam/documents/sacredscripture.pdf

        BTW most of what you say regarding the Bible text makes perfect sense to me. One of our societies is located in Boulder.
