The Bible is Real

Many people don't believe the Bible is Accurate.

But it Is:

Many of the Peoples and Places and Events in the Bible have been said to be totally untrue.  But in the last several years many (but not all) of these peoples and places and events have been proven by archeologists.

They find the places mentioned in the Bible

They find records of Events Described in the Bible

They find records written by OTHER peoples (such as Egyptians and Romans) that agree with what is in the Bible

Here are a few "Cut and Paste" clippings below:

The Bible is Historically Accurate
There were several secular historians who wrote about the events of the New Testament at the same time the Bible was being written. Josephus is the most well-known of them. He was a Jewish historian. Tacitus was a Roman historian who would have no benefit from not telling the truth. Both these men, as well as others, can be used to back up the historical accuracy of the Bible.
There are historical discoveries regularly coming to light that continue to support the accuracy of the Bible. Merrill Unger, who compiled a Bible dictionary wrote, “Old Testament archeology has rediscovered whole nations, resurrected important peoples, and in a most astonishing manner filled in historical gaps, adding immeasurably to the knowledge of Biblical backgrounds.”

The 19th-century critics used to deny the historicity of the Hittites, the Horites, the Edomites, and various other peoples, nations, and cities mentioned in the Bible. Those critics have long been silenced by the archaeologist’s spade, and few critics dare to question the geographical and ethnological reliability of the Bible.
The names of over 40 different kings of various countries mentioned in the Bible have all been found in contemporary documents and inscriptions outside of the Old Testament, and are always consistent with the times and places associated with them in the Bible. Nothing exists in ancient literature that has been even remotely as well-confirmed in accuracy as has the Bible.

Archeology proves the Bible is true. Archeologists have been able to dig up the places mentioned in the Bible. For example, they’ve found the Pool of Siloam where the blind man was healed and portions of Herod’s temple. The Hittite Empire is a great example of how archeology has shown us that the Bible is historically accurate. For generations, historians had no record of the Hittites’ existence anywhere else. Yet in the early 1900s, an archeologist discovered 10,000 clay tablets in the Hittite capital. Now everyone knows that the Hittites once existed.

I see lots of posts by my blogger friends blogs about bullying.  

I am so happy to see so many of you stand up against this!

This guy was bullied, maybe not as badly as some, but still people teased him about his weight.

He and his friend are competing on "Britain's Got Talent" 
And he reminds me that everyone is beautiful in God's eyes. 

God blessed this 17 year old guy with an amazing voice.
I am so happy he is sharing his talents with us.
