The sad truth is most Christians can't even defend their faith because they themselves are ignorant of God's word.

Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. -- Colossians 2:8
"My people are being destroyed for lack of knowledge..." Hosea 4:6

Why The Bible is Real

   Even skeptics admit that most of the prophesy written in The Holy Bible truly did happen. And that occasionally scientific community discover Biblical principle to be factual, historically correct, and amazingly accurate. Sometimes they categorize their admission by mere chance. Now, I will let you decide on the following verses or phrase, if these could have happen by mere chance.
Art of Fingerprinting    
   Job 37:7 "He seals up the hand of every man, that all men whom he made may know it." (English Standard version) and compare it to the literal translation from the original tongue "Into the hand of every man he sealeth, For the knowledge by all men of His work. "
   The book of Job was estimated to may have been written by Moses around 1657 and 1473 BCE, but other sources says Moses simply re-told the story and that Job may have lived during the time of the patriarch  (Abraham & Jacob); Therefore, it is much earlier, probably from the Intermediate Bronze Age or 2300-2000 BCE. Nonetheless, there's no problem when we consider the discovery of FINGERPRINT as a devise to identify people. Although there were some observation around the 16th century by various thinkers only around the 1800 when the process of fingerprinting was finally recognized. In fact, even if a person intentionally remove his fingerprint it will return to its original form and markings.

Cholesterol from Fat
Leviticus 3-17
" 'This is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live: You must not eat any fat or any blood.' "
   I think I don't have to explain the matter. Well, anyway, Moses could have not learn this advance medical knowledge from the Ancient Egyptians who raise him because during that time the common practice of people were so strange and even hazardous like for eye infection Blood of Bat, and even droppings of animals.
Gravity and Motion 
"He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing." -- Job 26:7
   While Ferdinand Magellan still argue that the earth is round only around 15th century, Job is already describing the earth rotation on an axis. Contrary to popular beliefs of Pagan's that the earth was carried by Atlas.
The Extreme Penalty of Crucifixion
   Crucifixion was in use particularly among the Seleucids, Carthaginians, and Romans from about the 6th century BC to the 4th century AD. In the year 337, Emperor Constantine I abolished it in the Roman Empire, out of veneration for Jesus Christ.
   But did you know that the prophesy on How Jesus would die was written 500 years before it is ever invented.
     "My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs;
      an evil gang closes in on me.
      They have pierced my hands and feet." --Psalm 22:16
(Note: The completed version of Psalm was around 500BCE after Cyrus king of Persia order the rebuilding of Jerusalem's temple. However the original copy was written from 1037BC to 967BC.) 
   Now, here are more graphic depiction on how it is done, long before it happen
   Isaiah 53:5
"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
   Zechariah 12:10
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

   I'll leave those for now so you can analyzed, later I will site some more examples of Biblical Truth. Like hygiene and proper food intake, GOD the originator of quarantine, which save the Jewish people from the 1918 Spanish Influenza that nearly wipe the population of the planet, the pandemic killed 40 Million but spare His people. The Jews was even blame for the spread of Bubonic plague because almost none of the Jewish community died in Europe. Actually, simple Biblical command save them, the annual cleaning in preparation of the feast of unleavened bread.
   Have you ever thought about why there's AIDS? Did God's written warning tell us so?  How about modern vehicle and high-tech weaponry describe in detail by Jesus' Apostle?


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I wanted to say I know from the bible that the birth of the savior happened in the spring. I'm not sure when we began celebrating the birth in the winter, but we do. Christmas is a positive and uplifting holiday and because of this, it is a great one. Everything that is praiseworthy and of good worth is of God. As for specific traditions, that's up to the individual. Thanks for your interest.

  2. Well, as mentioned in the Bible again "Not One Jot Or Tittle Will Pass Away From the Law Till All Is Fulfilled" Matthew 5:17
    I suggest you thoroughly read my article and compare them with what the Bible teach.
    Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."
    Is Christmas Noble, Right, Pure or Lovely?
