[Mr. Mohler tells us how archeology has no bearing on the authenticity of the Christian religion.]
Authentic Christianity is based upon the inscripturated revelation of God -- the Bible -- as our authority. In the end, archaeology cannot prove or disprove the biblical text. Nothing can be found, or not found, that should shake our faith in the total truthfulness and trustworthiness of the Word of God. Archaeology can expand our knowledge and understanding, but cannot establish the authority for our faith.

Fortunately even some Baptists I know consider this guy a tool and part of what is dragging their church down.

JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!
Meh. Go ahead and blindly accept the bible as fact, if that's what you want. Just don't expect the rest of us to do the same.

revelation of God means "bad peyote trip."

The saddest part is that he's absolutely right. Evidence and reason will have no effect on the truly faithful.

"Inscripturated" is not a word. It's always funny when idiots misuse "big words," or even worse, make up impressive-sounding words in a vain attempt to seem smart.
"Nothing can be found, or not found, that should shake our faith in the total truthfulness and trustworthiness of the Word of God."
So in other words, your mind (if you have one) is permanently made up and you're unwilling to consider any evidence which might point in another direction. Since you're supposedly such a word maven, what's your definition of "brainwashed?"

Man, you people lead really screwed up lives, don't you. All in the name of your god. I'm sure if your god existed he'd be pretty pissed that you waste so much of the life he gave you reading and basing your life on a 2,000 year old piece of fiction.

It'd be funny if they uncovered a bunch of Roman funeral records that indicated Jesus was never even crucified.

I ain't one to question anything what's been inscripturated.

As religious HAVE no factual basis, nothing can establish their authenticity or authority.

If your religion is based on the revelation of god. What do you need a bible for? Can't you just pray to god and let him tell you?
