Skeptics believe that to think skeptically makes the world a more moral place. Is this true? What is Skepticism? It is having a skeptical attitude about everything; doubt as to the truth of something. It is the belief that certain knowledge is impossible.
NTTC LUKE 22:43-44: Another Case of Not Following the Evidence
What really troubles this translator/author is that the churchgoer is the determiner of translation philosophy and textual decisions. Christians do not realize that the punishment for adding to and taking away from the Bible applies to everyone from the copyist to the textual scholar, translator, publisher, pastor, and yes, you, the churchgoer.
Are You Following the Truth Regardless in Textual Studies, Bible Translation, Interpretation, and Application?
What is the fight for the truth worth if the person misrepresents (alters by adding to or removing from) God's Word (Revelation 22:18-19) when the textual reading or the translation does not favor the theological position of a textual scholar or the Bible translator/publisher or an interpreter or a Christian reader.

Legal Terms as to How We Should Objectively View Bible Evidence
The burden of Proof: The burden of proof falls on the one making the claims. If the Christian is witnessing to another, he has the responsibility to prove what he says is true, if he is asked for proof. However, if the critic is challenging the Christian, the burden of disproving lies with the critic.
