I would submit that if the Biblical stories didn't actually happen then God
couldn't possibly be faithful. He couldn't have done the things the stories
claim are evidence of his faithfulness. If the stories didn't actually
happen, then the evidence of God's faithfulness is based upon fictional
stories. I would conclude that this would imply that God's faithfulness is
a fiction also.
