Many of these respondents have claimed that archaeology has proven the bible to be true, this is a half truth. Archaeology has proven the bible as much as it has proven "Abe Lincoln, Vampire slayer" has proven the existence of vampires. Yes many cities and people mentioned in the bible were real places and people in history, but that would also prove the Greek, Roman, Norse, and Egyptian religions were true.
If you want to believe in the bible or in god, you'll have to do it on faith alone.
After many millions of man-hours of research and evidence analysis, archaeology has repeatedly confirmed the reliability of the Bible. The Bible has been proven geographically and re-proven historically accurate, in the most exacting detail, by external evidences. ............... BUT no amount of information will be believed unless you have the spirit of Christ in you and YOU do the research yourself.
Archaeology has been called ?the Bible?s best friend,? a statement that reflects the long history of discoveries supportive of the biblical record. From the discovery of the Cyrus Cylinder in 1879, to the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, to the Pool of Siloam in 2004, archaeology has provided an independent witness to the truth of God?s Word.
Genesis 1:1 in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" in 1978 astronomer Robert jastrow wrote: the astronomical evidence leads to a biblical view of the origin of the world... the chain of events leading to man commenced suddenly and sharply at a definite moment in time in a flash of light and energy./ Isaiah 40 :22 "there is one who is dwelling above the circle of the earth" in ancient times the general opinion was that the earth was flat it was not until over 200 years after the Bible texts had been written that a school of Greek philosophers reasoned that the earth likely was sphericle. there are many more in the Bible including prophecies fulfilled. for more information go to www.jw.org
Some. Some things or places can be found in the Bible as well as on Earth. Ex: The Garden of Eden was said to be near the Euphrates river, which was an actual river in ancient Mesopotamia. Also, Moses climbed Mt. Sinai, which is also a real mountain in Egypt. There are many others too. But you have to have faith and not rely heavily on fact.
The bible is true, you can put many Slants on it and when you read it you can choose to believe all or parts of it. I believe there was an individual called Jesus. Wether folks roamed around in the desert for 40 years I am not so certain. Books like the bible have indicated that there are others who have visited and cont to visit us demonstrated by Hundreds of drawings of flying beings, Space ships Etc Etc, and does one Believe the pyramids are built so Exactly that we can't replicate them Even today, makes one wonder. The Earth was not made in 7 days, And it's billions of years old, not just A few thousand However I still believe in a higher power.
As for as present day BIBLE is concerned it contains many man made changes and thus they have made mistakes in copying and translating and what we see now is mess. Please see if this link is of some help to you Dr. Zakir Naik Exposes a Major Error in the Bible | Islamic Reflections xeniagreekmuslimah.wordpress.com/.../dr-zakir-naik-exposes-a-major-er...?
Of course there are some shreds of truth in the Bible. Every lie holds a grain of truth. Even with a little archeological support, the bible will still be known as a book of lies. Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark, the splitting of the Red Sea, talking snakes; grains of truth within a sea of lies.
hello, I don't know if i have the right to answer this question and to participate in this discussion or not. I am not Christian so excuse me if I am bothering you.
I believe that the Bible was TRUE I believe that the Torah was TRUE I am Muslim and as a Muslim I believe that Jesus is the prophet of the god Moses is the prophet of the god Abraham is the prophet of the god
Bible was True , yes it was true but people have changed it , they added parts, modified parts and deleted other parts in the Bible it was said that Jesus isn't the last prophet and that the last prophet is called Mohammed (Ahmad). that's what I believe.
What one interprets as truth does not make it fact. Is there factual support for biblical events or accounts? No, none. If there were, every Christian theologian would be waving the evidence about. The Bible is an extremely poor historical record, the fact that the book has lasted so long is more of a tribute to the agendas of its purveyors than of its accuracy.
Look at the origin of life. Five questions worth asking. # 1 How did life begin? # 2 Is any firm of life really simple? # 3 Where did instructions come from? # 4 Has all life Descended from a common ancestor? # 5 Is it reasonable to believe the Bible? The Bible encourages Christians to use their "power of reason" and to prove to themselves the things they are taught. " Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you." (( Romans 12:1-2) Living Bible Please take time to look at what the evidence reveals. Life always comes from preexisting life. However, if we go back far enough in time, is it really possible that this fundamental law was broken? Could life really spontaneously spring from no living chemicals? What are the chances that such an event could happen? Answer for the person that asked the question.
Tonnes of Proof. 6 sextillion, 588 quintillion short U.S metric tonnes of it to be precise, EARTH, ( Gen 1:1, Rom 1:20 ) NWT more on (www. jw.org) Lets not forget corroborating evidence in Science, History, Archaeology, The Bible doesn't explain everything otherwise there would be no room for Faith which makes up the rest. Some will question the evidence on hand as we would expect from critics etc. The real burden of proof really lies with the one that says there is none whatsoever.
People of the Christian faith will tell you that the proof is the Bible itself, but that's just a cover-up for having none. So the theory goes, the writers of the Bible were all a bit mad, and also smoked weed and other drugs with Jesus and thus saw some weird stuff.
That's what you choose to believe, then so be it. It's your truth right or wrong. Your talking about research, research and more research. Try unbiased research and see what you find. Start a topic with that and lets talk about it. That would be fun and interesting. I'm not choosing side, I know where I stand.
Do you mean some of the events in the bible? Some events are based on other historical events that only someone who has studied ancient history would pickup on. Some of the cities mentioned in the bible were real and some we have not found, probably because someone build a modern city on top of them. Some people will read the bible and believe all of it to be true. Most understand that the stories were allegorical and not meant to be taken literally. To truly understand the bible you need to take ancient history and jewish history courses in college. There are also plenty of independent books that deal with the bible. One I found interesting is "who wrote the bible". There are also plenty of debates in You Tube that will get you thinking. In the end you must make make a decision based on knowledge, not on the threat that you will be eternally damned if you don't believe, because that is simply not fair.
I believe the Bible is the inerrant word of the living God. Nothing to do with religion, the Bible proves itself through the way people change when they come to God in repentance and faith. Want scientific proof? Ask Dr. Kent Hovind aka Dr. Dino. Peace :)
