A lady I know wrote an article about how she lost her faith because she found contradictions in Scripture. She somehow believed that the foundation of her Christian faith was a contradictory-less Scripture. So when she found contradictions in Scripture, her faith crumbled. That's so unfortunate because the foundation of the Christian faith is not a Scripture without contradictions. I think my approach actually runs around all of that.

Louie Giglio is a good friend of mine. We grew up together and we tell some of the same stories from our childhood. There are things he tells in those stories that I do not remember. I'll say, "Louie, that didn't happen," and he'll reply, "It did happen!" I'll tell the same story with slightly different details, but nobody disagrees with the fact that we actually got pulled over and Andy got put in jail and Louie had to go tell our choir director. So I don't think differing details undermine the nut of the story, especially when that story is the basis of what it means to become a Christian.

Should pastors stop using phrases like "The Bible says" in their sermons? We asked other experts if they agree.
