Book of the Day "Who Wrote the Bible?"

Image
Who Wrote the Bible?    For thousands of years, the prophet Moses was regarded as the sole author of the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. According to tradition, Moses was divinely directed to write down foundational events in the history of the world: the creation of humans, the worldwide flood, the laws as they were handed down at Mt. Sinai, and the cycle of Israel’s enslavement and liberation from Egypt.
   However, these stories—and their frequent discrepancies—provoke questions: why does the first chapter in Genesis say that man and woman were made in God’s image, while the second says that woman was made from man’s rib? Why does one account of the flood say it lasted forty days, while another records no less than one hundred? And why do some stories reflect the history of southern Judah, while others seem sourced from northern Israel?
   Originally published in 1987, Richard Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible? joins a host of modern scholars who show that the …

Book of the Day "The Bible Unearthed"

The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts    In this groundbreaking work that sets apart fact and legend, authors Finkelstein and Silberman use significant archaeological discoveries to provide historical information about biblical Israel and its neighbors.

   In this iconoclastic and provocative work, leading scholars Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman draw on recent archaeological research to present a dramatically revised portrait of ancient Israel and its neighbors. They argue that crucial evidence (or a telling lack of evidence) at digs in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon suggests that many of the most famous stories in the Bible—the wanderings of the patriarchs, the Exodus from Egypt, Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, and David and Solomon’s vast empire—reflect the world of the later authors rather than actual historical facts.

Pastor Steals Money From Needy Kids Program and Buys Bentley

Image
The church is the biggest scam of all time,  and it's still working!!! Especially in the black community. It's like black people can't wait to give their money to the church on Sunday, despite my best efforts to expose the con that religion is. Any pastor that has studied the christian religion must therefore know that it is not based on fact, which makes them ALL fraudsters! Don't take my word for it, look at the way these pastors behave!

   One Chicago pastor is being accused of stealing close to $1,000,000 from his church’s food program designated for needy children. He used the money for his lavish gifts instead, one of which being a brand new Bentley.  The Chicago Tribune has reported that one of those gifts was a $142,000 Bentley luxury sedan.

   According to federal prosecutors on the case, Rev. Clarence Smith Jr., of New Life Impact Church for many years, was indicted on fraud charges for taking more than $900,000 from the federally funded Child and Adult Car…

Book of the Day "Why I Became an Atheist"

Image
For about two decades, John W. Loftus was a devout evangelical Christian, an ordained minister of the Church of Christ, and an ardent apologist for Christianity. With three degrees - in philosophy, theology, and philosophy of religion - he was adept at using rational argumentation to defend the faith.
  But over the years, doubts about the credibility of key Christian tenets began to creep into his thinking. By the late 1990s, he experienced a full-blown crisis of faith.
    In this honest appraisal of his journey from believer to atheist, the author carefully explains the experiences and the reasoning process that led him to reject religious belief. The original edition of this book was published in 2006 and reissued in 2008.
   Since that time, Loftus has received a good deal of critical feedback from Christians and skeptics alike. In this revised and expanded edition, the author addresses criticisms of the original, adds new argumentation and references, and refines his presenta…
