    "Religious Studies"

    November 20, 2017 by SouthWriter

    At the University of Wyoming, Paul V.M. Flesher, a well-meaning professor, seeks students for his course with this:

    "Why is it important to study the ancient Israelites, a people whose history was recorded in books more than 2,000 years ago? The answer is as simple as it is powerful: They created monotheism, the worship of one god." --Paul V.M. Flesher, University of Wyoming website

    Though I'm sure he has the utmost respect for believers, this is not the way to approach the study of the Bible. In no uncertain terms, the Israelites DID NOT "create" the religion that they practiced . The Bible is clear that the concept of monotheism was revealed by Yahweh, the Creator, to a pagan polytheist named Abram after the truth had been largely lost in the…

    Canaanite DNA Found

    August 10, 2017 by Superdadsuper




    Another “archaeological” discovery has been found within recent days; a find that is consistent, if not confirming Biblical record. A recent DNA test has confirmed and traced the existence of Canaanite genes in the city of Sidon and across modern Lebanon.The findings have been published in an American scientific journal with a focus on genes.

    The accounts of the Bible state that Israel was suppose to completely destroy the peoples of the cities of Canaan when God handed them over in victory

    Three Crosses

    April 14, 2017 by SouthWriter

    Three poles lay waiting for three criminals at the place called "the Skull".

    The Savior is lifted up for all sinners to see. Only the saints understand what they are looking at. There is but one Savior before all people, sinners and saints, will one day appear. Will you, dear sinner, be at the Savior's right hand?

    Note: This blogpost does not account for the "destroyers" mentioned in the text; however the general position of an "Angel of Death" remains the same



    Around Passover many begin to recount Exodus' account of the Passover: how the Hebrew Israelites put a lamb’s blood on their door and how an “Angel” killed the firstborn of every Egyptian household. This Angel is often renowned as “the Angel of Death”, but upon searching for this Angel in more detail many ask “Where is the Angel of Death found in the Bible?”

    Actually, the so-called “Angel of Death” is not found in the Bible. In fact, the scenario of the Passover it is not entailed that the “killer” was even an Angel, but God Himself not agents of wrath.

    In the previous blogpost Superdadsuper explores how Mary, Joseph and Elizabeth reacted to the news of a virgin conception


    During the reign of Augustus Caesar, it had been over 150 years since anyone had seen what passed as a miracle in Judea . As reported by the Jews, this miracle made one flask of oil last eight days rather than the one day expected. This happened just as winter was beginning. Today we know the commemoration as Hanukkah.

    Even the devoutest Jew did not expect miracles to happen. Mary of Nazareth was no exception. Her reaction to Gabriel's claims showed that she thought them impossible. Even when the angel told her that her older cousin, once barren, was now pregnant, she could only wait to see if this unheard of miracle woul…

    Virgin Birth: Reactions

    December 18, 2016 by Superdadsuper

    Imagine a married man who is preparing his future life with his new bride. Suppose this bride was gone on a three month trip to help her cousin and when she returned was found to be pregnant! What kind of feelings would this cause? Well, Joseph knew this feeling exactly, because he was this man and Mary was the wife. It sounds like the typical story of the unfaithful wife who shared her intimacy with another man, because she had not had any with her husband.

    In the next blogpost we will explore how the Bible claims the Virgin Birth as a literal event rather than an allegory

    Written in Stone

    November 19, 2016 by SouthWriter


    After the Assyrians descended upon the northern kingdom (aka "Israel") they preserved the land and its apostate religion by settling their own people among the poor and disenfranchised remnant.

    The Samaritan religion persists to the present as an accepted Hebrew sect in larger Judaism. However, some Jews might not be so accepting of that sect. Recently the Living Torah Museum in Brooklyn, NY, auctioned of an old Roman era memorial plaque of the Samaritan version of the Ten Commandments. The third commandment against taking the 's name in vain was replaced with a Samaritan Commandment requiring that a temple be built on Mount Gerizim rather than in Jerusalem.

    The winning bid was $850,000 for the two-foot square marble tablet that once had be…

    The Psalmist declared the necessity to store the Word of God in a safe place: the mind. This was necessary because even stone tablets can break and be scattered. The early use of papyrus (ancient paper) made the more permanent clay tablets obsolete for everyday use. Such a find is rare because of the fragile nature of papyrus. As attractive as it might be to dream of finding something from the pen of an Apostle, the nature of the medium makes this .practically impossible.

    Let us praise God that His people have gotten the Word out as they wrote, taught and preached to others over the millennia.

    You Know What They Say

    Experts and Bias

    The secular news magazine Newsweek presents coverage of what secular experts claim may be fake documents among the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls. Based on what these scholars consider a "strong coincidence" they are launching an investigation to develop "methods with which to counter [the] threat" of forgeries being sold to American evangelicals such as Steve Green and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    Though the concern may be real, the "flag of fakery" they consider is fragments preserved on the subject of homosexuality drawn from two passages in Leviticus. With texts going back to at least the Septuagint, there is no doubt to these texts being available in the days of the verified scrolls. Leviticus is part of the Torah…
