The greatest fact of all time is the Bible. How a book which has been so universally attacked could survive and attain to such a place of eminence is a miracle eloquently testifying to its supernatural origin.

Because the Bible forthrightly condemns sin, the hatred of sinners has been hurled against it. Because the Bible in plain and unmistakable language debases the pride of man, proud man has set himself the task to discredit it. Because the Bible uncovers the satanic underworld it is the object of the diabolical attacks of hell. Because the Bible declares that salvation is by grace alone all false religions have sought to extinguish it.

The Bible condemns every man and condones no man; it accuses every man and excuses no man; it abases human reason and exalts revelation; it repudiates the natural and rejoices in the spiritual, glorying not in flesh but in faith.

Attacked from all quarters and giving no quarter, the Bible has an Ishmaelite experience, its hand is against every man and every man's hand is against it, but wonder of wonders, it continues to dwell in the midst of the brethren.

Princes, philosophers, prelates, politicians and poets have all conspired against it. It has been insulted by the SCORN OF FOOLS. It has become the jest of infidels and the joke of sceptics. It has been assailed consistently and persistently by professed scholars and has been made the butt of the critic. Assaulted by every known plan of hell, it has come forth unscathed from the inferno. Like the three Hebrew children it has been in the fire and like them it has been wonderfully preserved and there is not a smell of burning upon it.

The fire has yet to be lit that can destroy it. The steel has yet to be forged that can scar it. The weapon has yet to be devised that can overthrow it. The scholarship has yet to be developed that can discredit it. The science has yet to be created that can demolish it. The plan has yet to be devised that can annihilate it.

The cunning of hell and the craft of earth have combined against the Bible but it stands unmoved, for it is as W. E. Gladstone, one of England's greatest Premiers has described it, the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture.

As the Bible has stood the hottest broadsides of hell it will not be affected by the popguns of modernism.

In the past century Voltaire thought he had demolished it and boasted that in one hundred years Christianity would be a museum piece. As a result, infidelity ran riot in France. Voltaire, however, passed screaming into eternity, but the Bible has not passed away. Moreover, Voltaire's printing press was used to print the very Scriptures which he boasted he had demolished and his house became a depot for the Geneva Bible Society.

.
"WILL THE OLD BOOK STAND?"

Will the Old Book stand, when the "higher critics" state
That grave errors are discovered on its page?
Will it save the sinful soul? Will it make the wounded whole?
Will its glorious truth abide from age to age?

Will its message still abide, when the scientists decide
That its record of Creation is untrue?
Tell us the ascent of man is by evolution's plan;
Will its principles the sinful heart renew?

When in language wondrous fair, "Christian Scientists" declare
That there is no evil, only mortal mind.
When mental treatment fails, and seeming death prevails,
May we in the Bible consolation find?

When infidels parade the mistakes which Moses made,
When the truth of Revelation they deny,
Will the Ten Commandments still the demands of justice fill?
Will its word support us when we come to die?

Yes, the Word of God shall stand, though assailed on every hand,
Its foundations are eternally secure;
It will bear the critic's test, and the idle scoffer's jest,
Its saving truth forever shall endure.

Stood the test of time? Lets put that to the test the statement seems to say that no other religious document has the history and continuance (staying power) of the Bible.

The Bible: KJV is only about 400 years old. If you take it from the birth of Jesus it is only @ 2000 years old. In truth none of the NT was written prior to 50-100 years after Christ's death. The "ordained" Bible was set up by the Council of Nicaea in @325 AD, cutting the age of the current Bible to @1700 years tops.

The Torah: Jewish holy book, basis for the Christian OT and the parent religion to Christianity, only dates back to @3300 years old (1300 BCE). This is roughly 2x the ages of the "Good Old Book".

The Bhagavad Gita: Main holy text for the Hindu faith, over 5000 years old (3000+ BCE), is 3x the age of the Christian Bible and almost 2x that of the Torah.

Conclusion: Seems like Christianity still needs another 4000 years to even begin to claim the "Good Old Book" title.

When it comes to religion Christianity is the "punk teenager" on the block. He tells everyone else they are wrong when, making grandiose claims when the truth is that they don't have the slightest clue just how stupid and uninformed they really are.

When you look at "survival":

The Torah has survived conversion efforts (Christians, Muslims, others) and genocide attempts.

The Gita has survived Christian forced conversion and the Inquisition, and religious wars with Muslims that sought to advance their influence and beliefs.

Christians: Other than a brief period of Roman persecution the worst the Christian religion has faced is being told they are wrong and people standing up to their attempts at forcing their ideas on others.

Christianity has no clue what real persecution or endurance is.

They do not want there to be a God, because they dont want to be held accountable for their sinful ways.
There is no excuse, Jesus is the only door to Heaven whereby man can be saved.
All human life and all flesh will be destroyed.
But Jesus is the only one that can take us to paradise forever to that new body that awaits for us.
We can have it if we have HIM in our hearts, and try to live as sinless as possible. But we cannot do it without him. He knows we are human and no one is perfect, but without him in our hearts we will go to hell for eternity. Rev 20.
Well, I was writing to you, not the bible. But it's ok, on an other thread I'm talking to Wikipedia.

If you want you own thoughts, I suggest you check out Alkuajatus.

why would anyone want their own thoughts. they are guided by satan, if jesus is not allowed to rule them.
and btw why do you insist on wanting christians to 'backslide'?
that seems to be your purpose.
if there really was no god, then you would not care what people did.

Fool, you dont even know the first thing about anything.

Now go sit in the corner with your bybull, pray to jeeebus to help you figure out all the foolish crap thats in it.

Then get up and go to the gun show and buy a new "prayer gun".

Have you even read the books of the bybull that were taken out? OMG books that "god" wrote...being edited? WTF?

OMG!!!!!!!!!! You dont have a dang clue as to how ignorant you are.

If you dont research your belief...you are LAZY!!!!!!!!

the bible calls people like you heathens, and im not afraid to say it either.
you guys always hate and attack christians, more than they attack you.
you dont want there to be a god, cause you dont want to be accountable for your evil sins.
but you have got a payday coming. big time.

Offended people produce much fruit: HURT-ANGER-OUTRAGE- JEALOUSY-RESENTMENT-STRIFE- BITTERNESS- HATRED- AND ENVY.
Some of the consequences of picking up an offense are: insults- attacks- wounding- division- separation- broken relationship- betrayal- backsliding.
Often those who are offended don’t even realize they trapped. They are oblivious to their condition because they are so focused on the wrong that was done to them: They are in denial.
The most effective way for the enemy to blind you: is to cause you to focus on yourself!
“OUR RESPONSE TO AN OFFENSE DETERMINES OUR FUTURE”! It imprisons countless Christians, severs relationships: It is the “TRAP” OF ‘OFFENSE”! Luke: 17:1It is impossible that no offenses should come.
Many people are unable to function properly because of the wounds and hurts “THAT OFFENSES” have caused in their life! They are handicapped and hindered from fulfilling their potential.

Correction, Alkuajatus is a tool to free the truth, or a map to find the truth, depending on how you see it. Anyway, also check out the video on that website.

i would rather make it to the hereafter in one piece than to worry about your map alkatraz.
ever how the tree falls, that is the way it will rise.
whatever rules your soul on earth will rule it on the other side of life.
i want to evolve to paradise, and i wont do that if i engage in mud slinging like liberals do.

If you choose to believe in imaginary stories instead of finding the truth, you should go Muslim instead. There you get 42 women with you, and not the first heaven, but the seventh heaven. It's like the penthouse paradise. Those Arabs sure know how to make business.
