Some apologists are we can know their holy book is true based on the claim in the holy book that it is true. This is a circular argument.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

2 Timothy 3:16 Bible-icon.png

"Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account."

Surah 3:19 Bible-icon.png

Counter arguments[edit]

Apart from being a circular argument, it is also a broken compass argument because multiple books claim to be true but make contradictory claims.
