Season: 8 Episode: 123
Do you remember the phrase, “Girl, read your bible?” It went viral because Alisha Illian was tired of hustle culture and knew women needed to open their bibles and read it. Alisha is on the show to talk about the reliability of the NT and the overwhelming evidence that shows the Bible is not only a historical document confirmed by eyewitnesses and archaeological evidence, but that it is the inspired word of God.
“Girl, read your Bible. You can eat all the kale, buy all the things, lift all the weight, take all the trips, trash all that doesn’t spark joy, wash your face and hustle like mad, but if you don’t rest your soul in Jesus, you’ll never find peace and purpose.”

We’re talking about the reliability of the New Testament documents, but what I love about this is that you went viral for a quote about the Bible. Can you tell us about that?
More copies of the Bible are sold in America than in any other country, yet American Christians are biblically illiterate and only 6% of Christians have a biblical worldview. Do you think that has anything to do with the way we view the reliability of the Bible?
As Christians, we grow up being told the Bible is the word of God and whatever it says is true. But to many, that’s not good enough. That tells us what the Bible is. But we need to talk about why. Why can the Bible be trusted? What are some of the evidences that deem it a reliable document?
Progressive Christians have a low view of the Bible. First, can you tell us what that means?
Follow up to this: Is that message carrying over into mainstream Christianity and why do we need to guard against it?
Why is it so important that Christians know these things about the Bible and their own faith?
Where can we find and follow you?
