This week I have re-posted an older blog that I will refer to in next week’s blog and future blogs.
2 Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)
Lately I have been trying to find ways to minister God’s Word to all people that come to this website. In that process I always remember the people that I have encountered that are not Christians and do not believe. Therefore, I decided to do some research and found a few things of interest.
One point of argument for Atheists and/or Agnostics is that the bible is an elaborate hoax designed to fool the people of the world. Atheists and/or Agnostics please pay close attention. Scholars, those are people that study and research things that are of interest to them to the point that these scholars are considered experts in their field, have determined that the Book of Genesis and the Book of Job were the first books written of the bible and that these books were written around 1400 BC to about 1450 BC. BC stands for before Christ was born and if you have never read the Old Testament you should it’s amazing. Just an FYI some archeologists use the bible as a reference point in their studies of certain period civilizations. These same Scholars, again Atheists these are educated people, estimate that the Book of Revelation was written around 90 AD. Here A.D. is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase “Anno Domini” meaning “in the year of our Lord” which is typically referred to after the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. That would mean that it took approximately 1500 years for the bible to be written. I wonder how people put together such an elaborate hoax in a 1500 years span and why. Imagine a hoax contained in a book that has been well read by millions of people for over 2000 years a book that millions of people say contains truths. Or maybe it is read by people that have faith.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 (NKJV)
God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
