How We Detect The Forgery
THE Word of God a forgery! I can understand the bewilderment of a religious reader, but let one consider coolly what the statement means. It does not mean that God forged a book. It means that men forged a book in God's name. That can be examined dispassionately by anybody.
You never heard of it? Why, they hold -- and quite rightly -- that almost all of the stories of saints and martyrs which are treasured in the Roman Church are forgeries; and there are Roman Catholic scholars who agree with them! They hold -- all the non-Roman historians in the world hold -- that the documents on which the power of Rome is essentially based are sheer forgeries. They hold that from the 6th to the 12th century Roman priests poured upon Europe a flood of forgeries, very much to their own profit.
The simple question here is whether ancient Jewish priests had done the same thing a thousand years before. But that is different, you say. These supposed forgeries are not lives of saints and decrees of councils, but the Word of God. Well then, what is a forgery? More
