Some Christians at my college challenged me to prove that the Bible was not accurate. As a skeptic, I spent 2 years trying to do this, and concluded that the Bible that we have today describes accurately what was said and done 2000 years ago.
When I then read the Bible, I saw that God wanted a personal relationship with me. I want you to see that God also wants a personal relationship with you, one that you can depend upon in your life.

If the senator doesn't tell the whole
truth and publicly own up to his failures with Wes, the people will have every

impeach him for his lack of integrity."

"No, I'm saying that we must be certain of the complete truth before we
say anything." Stevie ran her fingers through her hair, considering his
words, then shook her head. "Call it what you want, Robert. It's still a
bald-faced cover-up and you know it. It's not right. The senator must be
completely transparent about this entire fiasco."
