The Historical Accuracy of the Bible Revealed To be divinely inspired, a book must be historically accurate. For if its credibility cannot be established on the basis of known events, it certainly cannot be relied upon as an adequate guide in matters beyond our ability to check. On the other hand, if we can demonstrate that such a book is correct in historical matters, to an extent unknown among human writings, then we have strong evidence that the authors were inspired by God. Down through the centuries, enemies of the Bible have attacked its historical accuracy. Grapes In Egypt The Bricks Of Pithom The Hittites Forty-eight times in the Scriptures, a people called the Hittites are mentioned. Sargon In Isaiah 20:1, we read, “In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him)…” This is the only mention of King Sargon in the Bible, and the only one in ancient literature.

Vanishing Point: How to disappear in America without a trace Where there's water, life is possible. True, it may be very difficult and very hard to live, depending, but anyone who's driven, hiked, or camped in the American South West will have noticed that cities and ranches crop up where there's surface water or where there's been a well dug. Within the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, there are deserts, mesas, mountains, and forests where normally people never or rarely visit; not-so-secret places where there's water, access to a road within a day's hike, and where a fairly rugged individual may hide while remaining basically healthy, marginally well fed, and reasonably sane. In this section I'll look at two such environments, neither of which I would recommend, but one of which I'd suggest is a reasonable way to live in basic health while either on the run, hiding out from the law, old girl friends, the draft for an illegal war, putative wives and such.

Multiply Everything: Viral Churches, part 2 Viral Churches LifeWay Research conducted a study in 2008, interviewing senior pastors in various denominations. Of the 1,004 individuals in the sample, almost all (85 percent) of the Protestant churches indicated that their churches are involved in a missions in some way, from things like congregational prayer at least once a month to conducting short-term mission trips. When it came to the mission field of church planting, however, only 28 percent indicated that they directly participated in helping a new church. Only 12 percent of that 28 percent, however, were actually churches that acted as a "mother church," or accepted direct financial responsibility for a new church as a primary sponsor. The reality is that we won't see a church multiplication movement until we have all kinds of churches getting involved in primary participation. First, we need to multiply everything. In a sense, we are on a multiplication mission. I understand the fear. Be an Antioch church.

First, a definition from Webster`s New World dictionary: Religion – a . A belief in a supernatural power; b . an expression of this belief in conduct or ritual; c . a specific system of belief or worship involving a code of ethics; d . an object that is zealously pursued.
