Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.(Zechariah 3:1) NASB
Atheism’s accusation: God lies. It’s ironic, and the first logical fallacy. The only way for God to lie is if the Bible is authoritative. The atheist point of view is that the Bible is fiction, a lie, so how can there be contradictions?
By identifying examples which appear to be contradictions the atheist apologist has imputed facultative authority to the scripture, for the purpose of attacking its authority. This is known as a straw man argument.
A straw man fallacy occurs when someone takes another person’s argument or point, distorts it or exaggerates it in some kind of extreme way, and then attacks the extreme distortion, as if that is really the claim the first person is making.– Straw Man Argument, definition
Atheism isn’t Intellectually Viable: 1
- Why is the Bible suddenly authoritative,
- now that you want to use it to accuse God of lying?
- If God doesn’t exist, why are you accusing him of lying?
- your argument depends on the existence of God.
- If the Bible isn’t true then God didn’t lie,
- your argument exposes a critical flaw in your logic.
The actual purpose of the accusation isn’t to establish a logically sound conclusion, it’s to make us doubt and question our faith. That’s why it’s best to avoid these discussions as we’ve been warned.
But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.(2 Timothy 2:16) NKJV
