Need to defend the Bible?

Defend the Bible? It needs about as much defense as a lion!
(Charles Spurgeon, as paraphrased in Ben Witherington's The Living Word of God)

Spurgeon doesn't know about poachers and poaching! Of course the Bible need to be defended. If it's a lion, there are few ways of defending it. One of the best is to lock it up in a zoo. The other ways is to kill all the poachers.

But the common and humane one is by regulating strict laws against poaching, recruiting rangers to protect the creature, and assemble international police forces to fight the poacher's syndicate.

Read between these lines with biblical, theological, and educational languages to find out what I really mean. Happy weekend! :)
