Finding An Error In The Bible "The Jochen Katz Style"
The reason why I mention Jochen Katz, the founder of www.answering-islam.org is because I have noticed that in several of his articles he puts forth arguments that are so irrelevant and require such detailed hair splitting analysis that it simply makes it clearly obvious that he is not the kind of person that is a sincere truth seeker (this shows outwardly, we don't' know what is in his heart). Read a few of my responses to him here if you want to know what I mean.
In order to let Christians properly understand what I am talking about here, I will be using "The Jochen Katz Style" to finding an error in the Bible.
Imagine for a few minutes that I am the Muslim personification of Jochen Katz and I am trying to find an error in the Bible...
Scientists have informed us that during the creation of the universe not only were space and matter created, but even time itself.
If time is a creation then it would be logically absurd to ask what happened before time, since the word "before" is a temporal word:
The universe began from a state of infinite density. . . . Space and time were created in that event and so was all the matter in the universe. It is not meaningful to ask what happened before the Big Bang; it is like asking what is north of the North Pole. (Richard J. Gott, et.al., "Will the Universe Expand Forever?" Scientific American (March 1976), p. 65., cited here)
So we see that it is logically absurd to ask what happened or even talk about what happened before time.
However, this is what we precisely see what the New Testament authors have done.
For instance, Paul says:
1 Corinthians 2:7
No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
Also, we see that Jude said in verse 25:
to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
So that means that the New Testament authors stated something logically absurd! Clearly, this proves Christianity to be a false religion.
We all have that "Jochen Katz" inside of us when we feel desperate to unleash arguments against our opponents regardless of how ridiculous they might be, however I urge Muslims to not be a "Jochen Katz". We do have really good and strong arguments against Christianity. Use these real and clear arguments, not the ridiculous ones that require out right biased hair splitting analysis, A.K.A "The Jochen Katz Style".
