He that prays only when he prays with others, would not pray at all, were it not that the eyes of others are upon him. He that will not pray where none but God see him, manifestly doth not pray at all out of respect for God, or regard to his all-seeing eye, and therefore doth in effect cast off prayer.

Would God Let His Word Be Corrupted?

Considering God’s Revelation

With the variety of religions, there are a variety of documents, teaching various versions of spirituality and meaning for life. They all have views of God and claim to teach the truth about reality. A person who takes an intellectually honest look at the various teachings is forced to conclude that either many of them are wrong and only one is right, or all of them are right to some extent. The problem with the later option, is that you would have to admit that God let’s his revelation of truth become corrupted at the hands of men. I would like briefly provide some reasons why the Bible is God’s communication to us, and why it is reasonable to believe that it is uncorrupted by the hands of man.
