I will get started.
When asking is the Bible truly accurate, we must define several things….What specifically do we mean by accurate? Historically accurate, Archeologically accurate, Inerrant, infallible? Another question we must consider is which translation are we discussing for accuracy? Original manuscripts, Greek Translations, English translations or transliterations? English Paraphrases?
Clearly defined terms will help us to begin a great discussion. I hesitate to define terms on your discussion. Looking forward to this topic.

Accurate is simply defined: Are the words you are reading in your translation true? Did these events really happen?

Connie. I have not received anything from you.

I would challenge anyone to dispute the facts that are recorded in the Bible as true. There are virtually no scholars in the world who would discount, especially, the historical aspects of the truth of Scripture. There are, however, some who would question the supernatural situations and instances. For Instance….There are no credible scholars (or non-scholars for that matter) who would say "Jesus never existed." There are however those who would say that he never "turned water to wine, or fish and loaves to feed 5000."
Moses crossing the Red sea is an area of research where scholars are trying to find natural phenomenon to explain the "dry ground" crossing. Wind machines have been brought to the Red Sea to test their theories of hurricane force winds, but no definitive results have been found to support their theories. My theory is….God made the waters pile up and the Hebrews Crossed. But I have no concrete evidences to back up the claim of scripture. Furthermore I have no concrete evidence that Noah built the arc. As Christians, we don't have evidence, we rely on faith.
Wise man once told me….."for the unbeliever there is never enough evidence, for the believer there is no need for evidence."
I wish I could be at Salina more and discuss these issues in person, but I appreciate the forum you have provided here to allow me to help stay "Plugged In". :))
