Re: Inaccuracies?

1. Story of the Slaughter of Innocents - Supposedly, Herod the Great heard about the newborn Jesus and sent his army out to kill all the children in the land, assuming Jesus would be among them, but the family got a divine warning and left the area. A miracle that Jesus survived, although every oth...

Re: HAS Noah's Ark Been Found? Dr. Norman Geisler Believed So!

Was just reading Matthew Henry's take on Psalm 104 - he took the boundary line to mean that this boundary was set after the flood ( https://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/matthew-henry-complete/psalms/104.html ). Here's a good article by Rich Deem on Psalm 104 Psalm 104:9 - Does it refer to t...

Re: HAS Noah's Ark Been Found? Dr. Norman Geisler Believed So!

From the first link: Did the flood destroy all people on Earth? We feel that the answer to this question is a non-negotiable for believers in the inerrancy and inspiration of the Bible (see “The Inerrancy of Scripture”). It is important for Christians to affirm the historicity of the flood, because...

Ok, so the first question we should ask is "How old is the ark?" "When was it built?"
Mesopotamian history, archaeology, and the Scriptural timeline (using Septuagint numbers) all point to a great Mesopotamian flood taking place around 3000 BC.

Re: HAS Noah's Ark Been Found? Dr. Norman Geisler Believed So!

No one can speculate upon what a huge, boat-shaped object, with massive timbers dating to the time of Noah, encrusted in ice and rocks, far above the treeline, withing the area the Bible says the Ark came to rest - well, what could it be? It would be impossible to build something of that size, or t...

Re: What did Jesus mean with the following statement?

Let me take a shot at this one. Mat 5:21-23 is part of a larger section of the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus is discussing the Law and the error in the Pharisaic interpretation of the Law. In Mat 5:17-48 Jesus is contrasting the Pharisaic focus on external behavior with Jesus' focus on heart attit...

Re: HAS Noah's Ark Been Found? Dr. Norman Geisler Believed So!

Let me start by saying that I was sad to hear of Geisler's passing. He was one of my favorite current theologians. Geisler had a profound impact on my understanding of Scripture, and he was a great servant of Jesus. Regarding Noah's Ark. I remember sharing my thoughts on this topic a few years ago. ...

Re: Quick answers about Bible

They question becomes why take that long to write it down. However, that seems to be a pattern in ancient records. The issue with all ancient records (especially records that are 2000 years old) is that we do not have access to all the records that were written down. We only have access to those ve...

Point is, was your vote about YOU and your noble pride, or was it about making a tough choice that could save lives. One just can't justify throwing away a vote like that.

DB, I would have thought, on the abortion issue alone - at least as compared to Hillary - that a conservative Christian would have voted for Trump, as he was far more pro-life than Hillary, and he said he desired to appoint court nominees that are pro-life. How is that not worth voting for? DB: "Un...
