Eureka!

So what will it take?

Image result for camels for sand

Abraham’s shoe latchet? Joseph’s coat? The iron head that floated? Adam’s fig leaf?

I’m going with Abraham’s shoelace as proof positive that the scriptures are true, yep, need to see the goods. After all, eternity hangs in the balance of these laces. Unless I see the latchet from the sandal of Abraham, I will never admit as to the veracity of scripture, yep, it is that serious; I will not believe.

Sound familiar? Far fetched? Uh yeah, that’s the point of the absurd requests of they asking for the proof of scripture, as if there is a deficit in the narrative. No. The scriptures speak truth to truth, faith to faith.

Unfortunately, the so-called dig experts have been looking for love in all the wrong places; God has wickedly hid Abraham’s laces under a thousand feet of sand for millenia, just waiting until the junior sleuth uncovers the truth hidden since time began. Uh huh sure. Keep looking kid, for God in his foolishness has hidden the laces!

Then again one could always submit to the face of reason, and take a look at the evidence called life, and the palpable testimony of scripture without the laces, as spoken by He whose ways are from everlasting: ‘if they believe not the writings of Moses, neither will they believe my word, for he wrote of me.’

Case closed. God’s word is forever settled in heaven. Even the camels smile wryly.

    Fantastic, accurate, humorous, timely! Well Done!

    Many are blinded to the fact that the “evidence” doesn’t necessarily say anything, however those interpreting the “evidence” sure do have a lot to say. So here we go again with that “faith” word that’s relegated only to believers.

    The willful blind do not realize that they too are placing their faith in the mind or even philosophy of the one interpreting the data or evidence.

    I think the big problem is just getting people to read the words of Moses. It takes real effort for a newbie to wade through Leviticus. Fortunately, we can start with the Gospels now, especially the Book of John. He uses lots of little words.

    John 1:14 New King James Version (NKJV)

    14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

    Still, I don’t think some people can get use to the fact God loves us, that He is willing to forgive us. Some people just refuse to believe that all we have to do love each other and forgive each other.

    Strange, is it not? The proof is easy. Believe the people who saw our Savior and died refusing to say otherwise. Read the Bible, try to understand, and then suddenly realize men would never write such a book, not without divine inspiration. Yet nothing — no proof — seems enough.

        It is no big secret. If you were what you want us to believe, you would already know.

        1 Corinthians 15:3-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

        3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. 6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. 7 After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. 8 Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

        Those witnesses are now dead. Just exactly how many of them died as martyrs, refusing to deny that Jesus died and rose from the dead? I don’t know, but ten of the apostles did so. In the centuries that followed the resurrection of Christ, the Roman Empire persecuted and executed millions. So it is I believe them, and I see little cause for concern in the doubts and hostility that such as you display. It is simply another prophecy fulfilled.

        John 15:18-25 New King James Version (NKJV)

        18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’

        theancients identified quite well tainted with illogic that question is. It is talk like this that makes me more at peace with the foolishness of God than the wisdom of men.

        For thousands of years the Jews believed Moses had written the first books of the Holy Bible, generation after generation affirming the truth of the Bible. After the coming of Jesus and his affirmation of Moses, Christians took for granted that Moses had lived written the first books of the Bible. Now secularists cast doubt and demand evidence, and our evidence is suppose to be the fact that secularists believe? If they were believers, how could they still be secularists?

        Instead of spouting off reflexively, would it trouble you if you stopped to think first?

          Can you name a single Christian historian that has stated in writing that Moses was not an historical character?

          Keep in mind that Jesus told this story.

          Luke 16:19-31 New King James Version (NKJV)
          The Rich Man and Lazarus

          19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell[a] from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

          24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

          27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”

          If Moses never was, then the story makes no sense. Therefore, it is absurd for anyone to call himself (or herself) a Christian and not believe that Moses lived and wrote the first books of the Bible.

          Do people do such things? I suppose so. We have your question, for example.

          What ColorStorm moderates are your temper tantrums, childish behavior. If you were willing to keep a civil tongue and not make assertions you cannot support, he would let you speak your mind.

          Have you ever considered the possibility you take yourself way too seriously? We each are just one of the many billions who live on a small planet in a vast universe. If we have any significance, it is only because the Creator cares about us, and you don’t even believe that.

          So I point out a logical flaw in your question. What is the point of going ballistic? If your life is here today and gone tomorrow, why should you care?

          Your momentary amusement backfired? So? Why should you care? Is it possible that in your heart you know that this life is not the end, that there is something more? Then what is it?

          Instead of angrily and pointlessly condemning those you would belittle, why don’t you seek the truth? When you cannot behave as if you believe it, why do you insist there is no Creator?

          If you don’t have a dog in the fight, then why are you here? The only reason there is a “fight” is because you insist upon having one.

          Because you are blinded by your ego, you make no sense. You want to debate Christianity, but we are suppose to exclude any reference to the Bible? The Bible is one of the miracles that proves Jesus is our Savior. The Bible is the primary reference that defines Christianity. Since the Bible best defense is the Bible itself, I use it. Without the Bible, I would be restricted to my own devices. Since I am not Christ, that is not good enough to prove the truth of Christianity. Without the Bible, I would not have the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20), and I will not allow you to deprive me of that.

          As CS pointed out, you are trying to set up man’s “learning” (your own, really) as higher than God’s revelation. But you can’t. All you can do is exclude God’s revelation from the discussion, which make no sense. To discuss Christianity without the Bible is nonsense. Hence, the impossibility of reasoning with someone who sets up mans ‘learning’ as higher than God’s revelation.

    You take the Bible on faith that what it says is the truth… the exact same way in which you take the so-called hard evidences on faith that what the authors of those findings have concluded is the truth.

    I also had no idea that you and others could recreate Biblical accounts and test them in order to conclude them to be untrue. See, I’d have to place a LOT of FAITH in what you’ve just stated, to conclude it to be true… but have no fear, the great thinkers of materialism/atheism do not even require faith for this. They simply believe it because you said it…. ooopps NO. Is this what you guys derogatorily call blind faith Peter.

          I reiterate, in this instance, the archaeological record is more revealing than the biblical narrative or the comments, not matter how erudite, of individuals who try to defend a biblical point of view.

          But as the post here suggests, it is really pointless to look for shoelaces in the desert.

          And this conspiracy will not only include the vast majority of Jewish scholars and archaeologists – who have the most to lose – but a great many Christians as well.
          Tell me, why would they lie?

          Mis-taught……..poorly taught……ill-informed………..lies……….

          But the root? Pride and sin. It’s what men do. Simple really.

          Your desire to ‘extend’ a conversation that has long been ended is further proof of stubbornness, so it would be best not to help you tighten the noose.

          I am merely responding to claims i believe are erroneous.
          To say the vast numbers of scholars and scientists of every stripe and religion are in cahoots solely because of ”Pride and sin’ suggests a collective ulterior motive, which is unbecoming and unwarranted from someone who claims is always after the truth.

          These men and women, many of whom are or were Christian – Francis Collins and William Dever are perfect examples.

          More often than not they approached such issues with one intent – to glorify the god they worshiped and prove the bible to be an accurate historical record. Albright tried to do exactly this.
          But many have been honest enough to realise this is simply impossible based on the evidence.
          How can you vilify such people and not sympathize with their dilemma” You should salute their frank and open honesty, even f you wish to maintain a diametrically opposed position.

          You should have a little humility and remember a great any of these people, are still religious and many are trying to find harmony.
          Maybe if you were as educated as they and as dedicated in the pursuit of truth you might see things in a
          more honest light.

          Your last line is almost laughable if it were not so serious. ‘Dedicated to the pursuit of truth……………’ I have stood before you defending He of whom apart from truth there is none………
          as in the Lord Jesus Christ. If your ‘men’ agree with this, then fine, and now why do not you, if you pretend to pursue the truth?

          Or is it simply that you find tasteful their ‘flavor’ of truth because they agree with you regarding alleged discrepancies? Ah yes, that’s it. Collins placed his faith in Christ, yet you would pit him against other believers as a wedge. Nice try. Devers has parted company because he cannot find Abraham’s shoe latchet, and now somehow God’s word is weakened? Yeah ok. Nice try.

          Please stop already, you have no case against scripture.

          NO. THERE WERE ALSO INCLUDED MIS-INFORMED, ILL-INFORMED, OR MIS-TAUGHT. It is however true that men who reject the Creator are liars unto themselves.
          In addition, our evidence is the claim of scripture. It is enough to silence every voice of opposition, including every antagonistic archaeologist and so called scholar.
          Libraries of the world are filled with enemies of the gospel who have received awards; so what.

          Here ya go ark: all your comments wrapped up in one terse sentence……..

          ‘Scripture has no more value than Aesops’s fables, and Aesop was more clever, and Moses never lived.’

          Happy now? I just saved you a month of Sundays in typing and wearing out your fingers as well as your tongue.

          God’s word stands, and btw, my friend insanitybytes22 made a great observation regarding ‘every knee shall bow.’ Yep, including you and I.

          But you will be a bit busy facing the reality of the living God to concern yourself with what others have been telling you for years.

        False accusations are dime a dozen. God suggests clothing to cover such nakedness.

        In time you will apologize for your myopia, but I swear you make me look like a moderating genius, thank you.
