A geologist can date rock strata and determine the processes that formed it. A paleontologist can date a fossil and describe the environment in which it lived. A Christian can point at his book and say "Jesus loves me".
"Jesus loves me"
That... You will find trumps all... ALL of their lies!
Hope you find that too!

Yea.. Grab the Torches Boys... We gona go burn out Bill Gates, George Soros, George Glooney, The Kennedy's, The Kerry's, and all the Too Rich in Hollywood and rid ourselves of the Left Wing elitists that are driving the prices of every thing from Fuel to used cars to canned corn up on the backs of the poor people.....
They don't care if Gas is 10 bucks a gallon so of course they want to shut down the oil wells so they can see vast expanses of natural beauty in their 3 Million Dollar summer cabin without the pesky Po Folk driving through Their Nature... They found it humorous that so many poor folks would agree to turning over there food crops for them to have better views...
Let's Go, Grab the torches.... I'll bring the pitch forks.....
Hahahaha!
Good post!
Yes and Amen

Did Pontius Pilate Really Exist?
Few who have read the New Testament accounts of the trial of Jesus can forget the name Pontius Pilate. All four gospel accounts make reference to Pilate and he is also a prominent figure in the Gospel of Luke. But critics doubted his true existence for years. In fact, for approximately two thousand years, the only references to Pilate were found in such writings as Josephus and Tacitus. But aside from an occasional reference to Pilate in certain written records, there were no inscriptions or stone monuments that documented his life. But in 1961, all that changed. In that year, Pilate moved from a figure who was known solely from ancient literature, to a figure who was attested by archaeology
The Roman officials who controlled Judea during Jesus’ time most likely made their headquarters in the ancient town of Caesarea,(this is evidenced in two references by Josephus to Pilate’s military and political activity in that city). Located in Caesarea was a large Roman theater where archeologists found a two-foot by three-foot slab of rock with an inscription bearing the name of Pontius Pilate. A stronger piece of evidence for the New Testament’s accuracy would be difficult to find. Now known appropriately as “The Pilate Inscription,” this stone slab documents that Pilate was the Roman official governing Judea, and even uses his more complete name of Pontius Pilate, as found in Luke 3:1!
Great post!

Had a Great weekend!
An Uncle went home to the Father,
The Rift between two siblings ended, and
Our oldest girl stopped in for a two day visit!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!

I'm so glad that Christianity is dying and all that's left are a minority of radical nutjobs posting on websites.

Just because a Christian apologist/archaeologist states "We can just accept the Genesis records as being what they claim to be—factual eye-witness records" DOES NOT constitute proof that you are sane.

That has to do with God's grace (underserved kindness) extended to humans. It has nothing do do with YOUR honor.

I once read a book that told me Martians were landing in towns across the globe, named the towns, told of the people and places... By the logic used in Christianity I should except the Martians as Real because the book spoke of places I can verify....

As in Orson Wells radio adaptation of War of the Worlds?

I heard of a book that condones killing one's unruly children... nope, not the Bible. Arkansas legislative candidate Charlie Fuqua's.

He is reasonable about it, though:
"They must follow the proper procedure in order to have the death penalty executed against their children."

If you sin during the thousand year reign of Jesus , will you be put to death or be forgiven like you are today. Not a trick question but one that some would ponder on I think.

Lots wife sin just by being curious and then put to death. Will it be as strick during the thousand year reign of christ?
Yes and Amen

Some say that Lots wifes sin was more about being desireous, or mournful of the life she was leaving!
Only those that don't want to sin will make it to the 1000 year
reign of Jesus... It's a Heart thing!
God knows your heart, and what you really want!
The Episcopal (Gay) church... Might have a Problem there!
Anyone remember what the 'straight' part renamed themselves?

Then why would Jesus rule will a iron fist if he knows no one will sin during the thousand year reign?

Why would a third test be required of anyone at the end of the thousand year reign of christ since satan already had been defeated before the thousand year reign?

I need more proof reading. I meant to say:

"Jesus rule with a iron fist during 1000 year reign."
