TRUTHBOMBS: A Good video for people who do not believe in an inerrant bible.
4000 years old is as close as we can get to connecting how old is “Allah” as deity, his relation to the great rebellion, sex, war … everything.Amid excavations at four different ancient sites in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat in the Uşaklı Mound at the Büyük Taşlık village in Turkey there laid a cuneiform tablet unearthed after laying there for 4000 years (2,000 B.C.) The cuneiform tablet in the Sorgun district of Yozgat shows symbols of Ishtar, known as the Hittite goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality. Ishtar or “the queen of harlots” goddess was found mentioned more clearly in this cuneiform than those on any other unearthed tablets.Linking Ishtar to other archaeologic relics, also written in the same cuneiform is the Epic of Atrahasis cuneiform dating just as far back in ancient history (1700-1800 B.C.), which reveal that this ancient deity known as Ishtar and the snake beast god known as Ishtaran another name for “Allah” who is literally mentioned in the epic by name and was a transvestite (dual male and female nature).
“He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” – Isaiah 33:15-16 (KJV)
Many Christians today almost feel guilty when they try to remove sin from their lives as through it is wrong in some sense to separate from the other sinners in the world and have nothing in common with them.
This is flawed thinking. Consider the verse above from the prophet Isaiah, he makes it clear that if you are to survive the tribulations ahead, then separation from the sinners of the world is necessary.
-Stay Biblical My Friends
You can feel the sarcasm in this article. They say things like: “it defies science.” Yet it confirms real observational science not the fantasy land bias that evolution puts out. Only the Bible makes sense of what we really observe in the world. Such as mutations NEVER increase information in the genome, only decrease. Therefore evolution is pure fiction yet billions bet their eternal life on it.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. — In the beginning, Ken Ham made the Creation Museum in northern Kentucky. And he saw that it was good at spreading his belief that the Bible is a book of history, the universe is only 6,000 years old, and evolution is wrong and is leading to our moral downfall.
And Ham said, let us build a gargantuan Noah’s ark only 45 minutes away to draw millions more visitors. And let it be constructed by Amish woodworkers, and financed with donations, junk bonds, and tax rebates from the state of Kentucky. And let it hold an animatronic Noah and lifelike models of some of the creatures that came on board two-by-two, such as bears, short-necked giraffes, and juvenile Tyrannosaurus rexes.
And it was so.
“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.” – 1 Chronicles 12:32 (KJV)
What is interesting about this verse is that the tribe of Issachar could see what was going on in the world, in this particular context it was that David was taking power. Do we do this today? Do we see what is going on in the world?
In the world today, many of us just want to go about our own business and not be stressed by many of the things that are going on in the world and especially the scientific community because it requires us to think really hard on some subjects. This also stems from a common belief that faith does not require thinking.
Biblical authority is what is at the heart of everything happening in the world. Do we trust the secular scientists and politicians or do we allow God to tell us. Let make a few definitions:
- Biblical inerrancy: Is the bible accurate when it does speak on matters of science and when it does is it correct and trustworthy
- Biblical perspicuity: Is the bible clear and easy enough to be understood at face value.
The gospel message depends on things like the reality of Adam and Creation, and the fall in order for there to be redemption. If fossils are 100s of millions of years old then there was death of man before the fall. If death is not the consequence for sin then why do we need the resurrection? Christians are deciding to believe some of the Bible, a Bible a-la-cart theology.
More than anywhere else in the world, America has been blessed with more Christian ministries and education groups. Is our society getting better or worse? Is the church influencing culture or is Culture influencing the Church?
We see our culture through our experiences and it shapes our moral principles whether correct or not. We figuratively say to ourselves “My culture is right because we are so prosperous (one culture out of many), or freer, or smarter…etc.” In other words we say to ourselves “My culture has made me so prosperous that it must be the right/true culture.” These first principles, whether right or wrong, become the basis through which we interpret information, including the scriptures. But this scream to us: “WHO IS IN CHARGE HERE?”
So we Americans do this all the time with scripture and not realize it. Here are a few questions to examine through our cultural lens:
- Do I feel a sense of success if I die and nobody knows my name but more people have come to Christ? In a success obsessed culture such as ours, we place ourselves higher on the glory rendering platform then our Lord.
- Do I believe God wants me to succeed, or does God want more people to know Jesus? Your definition of success will be influenced by your cultural influences. God’s definition of success is probably much different than ours. Who do you think is right?
- Do we compartmentalize ourselves into different people? That is work is separate from family, separate from religious beliefs and social clubs. In the West, corporations train people that work is not family and family is not work so do not bring your personal problems to work. This teaches us have a dual personality and to even prioritize our life. I mean life! That business would come before living or health or family.
Our culture may influence how we answer these questions particularly on how we define success or how a person is valued in society. Today’s culture in the West shows that people are valued by their productivity instead of just their being. This has taught generations of children that they only have extrinsic value and not intrinsic value and why more people treat other people as tools for their personal success instead of as the image of God.
While the Bible tells Christians to be salt and light in a world of darkness (Matthew 5:13), what is actually happening is the opposite. Christians are becoming more like the world. Almost daily there are news stories of ministers being charged with sexually related crimes and even violence. Are we imitating the world or is the world imitating us?
