A Defenseless Book???

In our day it's interesting to see that in all the cultural wars, and attacks brought against Christianity and the Bible, it seems that the Bible has an answer for every objection. It's as if the book itself was expecting attacks to come upon it. Could this be evidence of divine inspiration? In response I've decided to post a list of these attacks and objections along with Bible verses and passages that answer each. Here is a list of common ones:

"My sexual preferences are fixed and cannot change": 1 Corinthians 6-9-11

"Sex outside of marriage is fine": Hebrews 13:4

"My feelings determine my gender": Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:18; Genesis 2:23-24

"The Bible is corrupt and changed": Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 1:23-25

"The Bible is not the word of God": 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

"Do whatever feels right as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else": Romans 14:12

"Racism will never go away": Ephesians 2:11-14

"All world religions and religious books have the same validity": Isaiah 41:21-23

"There were no eyewitnesses of Jesus Christ who write the Bible": 2 Peter 1:16

"There is no evidence for God's existence": Romans 1:19-20

"Christians are hateful, bigoted hypocrites": Matthew 7:15-23; 2 Peter 1:4-9

"Jesus Christ is a myth": 2 Peter 1:16; 1 John 1:1

"You can't quote the Bible to prove the Bible": Deuteronomy 18:21-22

The words of the 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon couldn't ring more true in a day and age of such criticism: 

"Defend the Bible? I would as soon defend a lion! Unchain it and it will defend itself".
