  1. Dear Atheist Eve,
    After reading your comments I am very relieved to realize that I have not been indoctrinated. For instance I was not given a religious upbringing as a child and I did study the history of the transmission of the text of the New Testament to make certain that it is a trustworthy and reliable written document before I believed in Jesus. Here are some of the books I read in case you may be skeptical:

    Lightfoot, Neil R. How We Got The Bible. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House. 1963.
    Bruce, F.F. The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable. Grand Rapids, Michigan: W.B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Revised 1960.
    Geisler, Norman L., Nix, William E. A General Introduction To The Bible. Chicago: Moody Press. 1978.
    Kenyon, Sir Frederic. Our Bible And The Ancient Manuscripts. London: Eyre & Spottiswoode. 1941.
    Greenlee, Harold J. Introduction To New Testament Textual Criticism. Grand Rapids, Michigan: W.B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. 1964.
    Gromacki, Robert G. New Testament Survey. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House. 1974.
    Harris, Laird R. Inspiration And Canonicity Of The Bible. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan. Revised 1969.
    Harrison, Everett F. Introduction to The New Testament. Grand Rapids, Michigan: W.B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Revised 1974.
    McDowell, Josh. Evidence That Demands A Verdict. San Bernardino, California: Campus Crusade for Christ International. 1972.
    Morris, Henry M. Many Infallible Proofs. San Diego, California: Creation-Life Publishers. 1974.
    Pinnock, Clark H. Set Forth Your Case: An Examination Of Christianity’s Credentials. Chicago: Moody Press. 1971

    Hmmm??? That gets me to thinking???  I suppose you could turn this whole thing around and it might go something like this:

    Signs you may be indoctrinated as an Atheist:

    Theist Tom says,

    “You adamantly insist that the New Testament text is untrustworthy and unreliable but you have never read any books for yourself on the subject. Instead, you accept what certain “experts’ have told you because it reinforces the conclusion that you want to believe.”

     “ Papyrus and vellum? Miniscule and Uncial? Codex Vaticanus, Sinaiticus and Alexandrinus?  It’s all Greek to me?”
