What Ricky Gervais Thinks

A British comedian and an atheist, Ricky Gervais remarked to a TV talk show host that if all the sacred books such as the Bible were to disappear, to perish, they would never be written again.  By contrast, if all the science books that have been penned were to disappear, they would be written again since the facts contained in them would be re-discovered and re-established.  But Mr. Gervais is wrong.  He’s right about the Book of Mormon, wrong about the Bible.  Biblical doctrine would emerge again because God would still be doing His salvific work.  People would still find out about the Atonement and justification by faith, etc.—palpably they would find out—and the news would be rapidly written down, as it was in Paul’s epistles.  Revelation would still exist.  It would not be withheld.
