Thomas Paine wrote The Age of Reason in 1784 In it he included his views on the religions known throughout the world For this he was ridiculed and despised by many in society Thomas Paine once said that a sermon he heard at the age of eight impressed him with the cruelty inherent in Christianity and made him a rebel forever It is my opinion that because of this he lived the rest of his life never to actually study the Bible or Christianity Because he was a rebel forever to the Christian religion he was compelled to write of it in the 11th chapter of his book The Age of Reason and quite inaccurately at that I believe that Thomas Paine did not know enough of the Bible to speak against it and in this paper I plan to expose the contradictions in Thomas Paines The Age of Reason when compared to the Bible and evidence proving that the Bible is accurate The contradictions most important are Paines assumption that the stories of the bible are all hearsay and also his claim that Christianity is the worship of a man rather than an omnipotent GodFirst let us prove that the Bible is an incredibly accurate source of history It is a fact that over 25000 sites have been discovered that have connection to the Old Testament period Not only have these discoveries provided external confirmation to hundreds of scriptural assertions but also not one archaeological discovery has ever contradicted a biblical reference The Bible is the only religious book in which the people and places contained in it are verified by history and archaeology Discovered in 1947 at Qumran the Dead Sea Scrolls confirm the reliability of the biblical text These scrolls dating from 3rd century BC to 1st century AD are the earliest copies of Old Testament books Their predicated and fulfilled prophecies provide evidence for the divine origin of the BibleGoing back
