Archaeology

Ancient Chinese Culture Confirms Genesis; Part 1

Recorded Chinese culture extends back to almost the Tower of Babel. A recent archaeological find confirms the truth of Genesis chapter 3 in an amazing, powerful and completely independent way.

Babylon

Babylon was the world power of its time but it was no match for the Almighty. And the prophecies concerning it were 100% accurate.

David’s capture of Jerusalem

Apparently David new about the water shaft, so he said to his men that the only way to conquer the Jebusites will be via the water shaft …….

Ebla Tablets

The Ebla Tablets have shown what life was like at the time of the patriarchs, as well as the reality of Sodom and Gomorrah and other biblical cities.

Hezekiah, Judean king

The evidence that exists of his reign, associates, projects and the events that occurred during his time, is very strong and it confirms the integrity of the Bible.

Hezekiah’s Seal Found

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem announced a significant discovery on December 2, 2015; the first seal impression of a Judahite king ever found by archaeologists in Jerusalem.

Hezekiah’s Tunnel

The tunnel was discovered by Edward Robinson, an American Bible scholar,Hezekiah’s Tunnel in 1838.

Isaiah’s Seal, has it been found?

There is good evidence that the seal found belonged to the prophet Isaiah; it was found in the right place and in the right archaeological period. But it is broken in half and definitive assignment is impossible.

Lachish Latrine

Whoever would have thought that the discovery of a toilet would have shown that the Bible is a true historic account of the events it mentions.

Lachish Letters

The Lachish Letters add to the large body of evidence that show that the people and places recorded in the Bible were real and that the events mentioned, actually took place.

Naboth’s Vineyard Discovered

Strong circumstantial evidence supports the assignment of Naboth’s Vineyard to one discovered in an archaeological dig. again showing the Bible to historically accurate.

Sodom found scripture confirmed

Why has there been such a desire to label the Bible account of the destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah and the other cities of the plain, a myth? Could it be that people do not like to think that there is an all-powerful God who will judge sin.

The Hittites

There is no doubt that as far as the Bible is concerned the Hittites were a real people, but there was no solid archaeological evidence of their existence ……….

The House of David Inscription

The stone was easily removed and when turned toward the sun, the letters were clearly visible. In their words, “It was an unforgettable moment.”

The James Ossuary

The existence of an ossuary was announced on October 21, 2002. What made this artifact so different from the over 10,000 that have been found, is that it contained the inscription written in ancient Aramaic; “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.”

The Pool of Siloam

To dismiss John as historically unimportant is absurd. Now it becomes clear that the gospel of John does have reliable historical information. We have found there is such a pool, precisely as John describes it.

Social Comment

A Faithful Servant

A faithful servant, an unknown preacher, changed the face of Victorian England with a ten minute sermon to 12-15 people, showing that God can and will use anybody or situation to bring about His purposes.

Anniversaries

Two important anniversaries to Christians cannot be allowed to pass by without comment.

Christ’s second coming is getting close

Jesus equates the days of Noah and Lot with His re-appearance. We now have homosexuals taking to the streets and babies from three people. The time must be getting close.

How Christianity made the West great

It was Christianity, with its law, individual rights, care for the needy, its institutions for learning, its basis for science and the arts, that made the West great.

Islam is the problem

Many or most media outlets, both electronic and print, paint a rosy picture of Islam and refer to it as the “Religion of Peace.”

Louis Zamperini

From an Olympic competitor to a brutally treated prisoner of war, to a drunkard racked by post-war nightmares to a new life in Christ free from his tormentors; all in the remarkable life of Louis Zamperini.

Malcolm Muggeridge

Muggeridge indulged himself in the base things of this world, but he knew they did not fulfill and only when he observed the sacrificial love of Mother Teresa did he did he become a Christian and use his God-give abilities of wit and prose to support Christianity rather than to attack it.

Michael Phelps

He had fame and fortune, but Olympic gold medal winning machine; Micheal Phelps, contemplated suicide…

Mr Eternity

A chronic drunkard, born into abject poverty, turned to God and produced a one-word sermon that reached over two billion people.

Shaftesbury, the Christian Crusader

Anthony Ashley-Cooper was born on April 28, 1801 in Mayfair, London, into wealth and privilege and yet, he became the greatest reformer for the destitute, abused, helpless, defenceless and rejected members of society of Victorian England.

Social Comment 3; Is Gay the New Black?

This question, which is circulating in the United States, is being put forward as a positive statement, in other words; we have stopped/reduced racial discrimination, now we must stop/reduce discrimination of homosexuals. But are the two equivalent? Does one naturally follow the other?

The Miracle of Dunkirk

The year was 1940 and the mighty German war machine was crushing all before it …. a third of a million men comprising the British Expeditionary Force, three French divisions and the remains of the Belgium army were trapped between the advancing German army and the sea.

The Religion of Climate Change

The sixteen year old High Priestess of the Climate Change religion, Greta Thunberg, castigates the United Nations for not doing anything to prevent world climate catastrophe which will happen in 2030. Is she correct?

Transgender Politics

Transgender politics is sweeping through western nations like a tidal wave. The idea is that gender is fluid and that the brain determines gender. But biology says differently.

Two religions Two World Views

An incident occurred in southern France recently, where two men lived out their religions and in doing so, left four people dead.

Faithful Servants

A Faithful Servant

A faithful servant, an unknown preacher, changed the face of Victorian England with a ten minute sermon to 12-15 people, showing that God can and will use anybody or situation to bring about His purposes.

George Matheson, a blind preacher with insight

George Matheson started to go blind while he was studying for the ministry. Instead of blaming God and giving up, he completed his studies and many people were blessed through his preaching including Queen Victoria.

Prophecies

Daniel’s detailed and accurate prophecies

Because Daniel’s prophecies were so detailed and accurate, liberal scholars say the book must have been written no earlier than the second century BC. However, the weight of evidence is against such a proposal.

Ezekiel’s remarkable prophecy

Ezekiel’s prophecies concerning Tyre have come true even in the minutest detail. Again proving the reliability of the Bible.

Prophesies that did not come true

Many people have been predicting the end of Christianity and the irrelevance of the Bible; Voltaire was one, but his story has an intriguing twist to it.

Evolution

Antony Flew

Antony Flew, the world’s most vocal atheist, looked at the chemistry of life, rejected atheism and announced that he believed in a God as the only possible position he could hold. It is Christianity that makes sense, not atheism.

Blubber in a 180 million year old Ichthyosaur

Tests show that biological material can only last a few thousand years in our environment. Yet more and more soft tissue is being found in dinosaur era fossils. It can only mean, evolution did not happen.

Darwinian Deception

The Darwinian evolution story is so fanciful that propagators have to resort to deception in order to sell it.

Evolution: How scientific is it?

This cartoon, which is courtesy of Creation Ministries International, illustrates the absurdity of evolution which posits that in the beginning there was nothing and it exploded to give hydrogen which in turn produced all the heavenly bodies, our earth, water, all plant and animal life and then you and me.

Evolution?…. Impossible!

Evolution means that life has no meaning or purpose; you came from nothing and that is where you will go when you die. It has provided the reason for eugenics, euthanasia and abortion and yet, it is a lie.

Mendel versus Darwin

Mendel experimented while Darwin theorised. Darwin was embraced and Mendel forgotten until real science showed Mendel to be correct and Darwin not.

Radiometric Dating

The key to radiometric dating is that a radioactive isotopes normally decay at a precise rate. But there are three major problems which give inaccurate results.

The Human Eye; a masterpiece of design

As the title states; the human eye is a masterpiece of design. There is no way it could have evolved and it is an insurmountable problem for evolutionists.

Why Evolution is Impossible Part 6

Sir Fredrick Hoyle (astronomer) and Dr Chandra Wickramasinghe (mathematician), both evolutionists calculated the chances of biologically active proteins forming purely by chance from their constituent chemicals, which is what the Theory of Evolution, in its broad sense requires.

The biblical account of Jonah may seem not quite right at first, but when it is place into the correct time period everything fits nicely.

Assyria, Nineveh and Jonah Part 2

The account of the events recorded in the Book of Jonah seem to be almost an enigma, it on its own. Biblical critics love to attack the Bible through it. But when its events are analysed with respect to history, everything falls into place.

Unexplainably, when a child is conceived, the mother’s blood is never mixed with that of her fetus; the two vascular systems are completely separate.

Christ’s cross

Jehovah Witnesses claim that Christ was crucified on a pole and not a cross. They are clearly wrong about Christ’s Lordship, are they wrong with His form of crucifixion as well?

Lee Strobel was a hard-line, arrogant and astute investigative journalist with a nose for a good story, as well as being an ardent atheist. His life changed totally when his wife told him that she had become a Christian.

Luke

Luke has been attacked for giving people titles that did not exist, but are his detractors correct?

Moabite Stone (Mesha stele)

Pontius Pilate

Pilate may have been a big shot in Jerusalem but he was merely a pawn in the hand of the Almighty.

Pontius Pilate: more evidence

Archaeology has provided a deeper insight into the character of the man used by God to play a major role in releasing people from the chains which once bound them.

Prophesies that did not come true

Many people have been predicting the end of Christianity and the irrelevance of the Bible; Voltaire was one, but his story has an intriguing twist to it.

God gave Abraham irrevocable promises concerning his descendants including the land of Canaan . The promise of the land was repeated many times to Abraham.

The Date of Jesus’ Death

The markers that Luke provides regarding the time of Jesus’ birth, precludes the earlier date for Christ’s death. Against this, is the circumstantial evidence for the earlier date of Jesus’ birth supplied by Josephus. Luke has never been proved wrong.

Although Christians are constantly accused of believing in a God they cannot see, believing in fairy tales and needing a psychological crutch to get them through, the fact remains as this article has shown, if you are a Bible-believing Christian, then science is on your side.

God’s Amazing Creation

Even more astounding than these nano motors, is the fact that some people think that, they and the cells that contain the mitochondria with all of its incomprehensibly complex machinery, formed by themselves by the chance colliding of chemical compounds.

Ice Core Dating

A straight forward reading of the Bible will give the age of the heavens and earth of about 6,000 years. However, this is disputed and ice core dating is claimed to give a much older age for the earth.

Mitochondrial Eve

The Bible states that all people came from one man and one women; Adam and Eve. What does modern science say?
