Of all the books that exist in this world, there is one that liberals and progressives dislike above all, a book that has been a cornerstone of western culture for thousands of years, instilling good morals, values, and character in those that choose to learn from its wisdom. That book is the Bible.
Attempts to prove the Bible false are nothing new. Recently, liberals found evidence that the Canaanites weren’t wiped out, and used this as the basis of claiming the Bible is false. There’s only one problem: the Bible specifically says that the Canaanites weren’t wiped out. God instructed the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanites, but they disobeyed. Judges chapter 1 tells the whole story. (via Daily Wire)
It’s sad to see just how far the left goes in their attempts to try and slander the Bible, going so far as to push outright lies to try and smear it.
A recent study found that human remains, dating roughly 3,700 years ago from the ancient Canaanites, had DNA that was very similar to the Lebanese. Published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, liberals jumped on the story, thinking it disproved the Bible. Even mainstream outlets such as The Telegraph and The Independent published stories on the topic.
It’s hard to believe that not a single person at any of these outlets knew anything about the biblical account of the Israelite invasion of Canaan. Even worse, that they would write a story like this without even bothering to open the Bible, or even do a quick search on the Internet for that matter, is a shocking failure in professional journalism.
David Klinghoffer, writer at Evolution News, defended the biblical account and refuted the manipulative and misleading stories.
He notes, “The first chapter in Judges lists all the places in Israel where the Canaanites persisted, ‘to this day,’ ‘for they did not drive them out,’ ‘he dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land,’ etc. God is not happy with this, for ‘they shall be as snares to you, and their gods shall be a trap to you.’ (2:3). From the Anchor Bible Dictionary, Vol.1 (‘Canaan’). The persistence of Canaanites within Israelite territory was a theological problem variously addressed by biblical writers.” (via Daily Wire)
Liberals are always trying to disprove the Bible. Do you believe the biblical account?
Several publications took the claim and ran with it, publishing the false information without checking it against biblical sources or any that could provide a check to the claim that the Bible was proven wrong. Had they checked with a biblical source, they would have found that the Israelites were punished specifically because they did not drive out the Canaanites.
This isn’t the first time the American media has gone after the Bible and it won’t be the last. A year ago, a New York Times piece suggested that the Bible’s book of Romans calls for the execution of gays, a claim that is completely false, as any Christian could tell you.
These reporters, most of whom have journalism degrees from advanced institutions, can’t seem to write an accurate story when it comes to the Bible. This type of misinformation is irresponsible journalism and an embarrassment to the profession.
