Post Is Christianity In Trouble?

Cameron (acting as producer), biblical film documentarian Simcha Jacobovici and a handful of their expert consultants were at the Library to publicize Jacobovici's The Jesus Family Tomb, which will run this Sunday on the Discovery Channel, and a HarperSanfrancisco book of the same name.

Thumbs up Christianity is not in trouble !

The people that "try" and tear It down are in trouble and just don't know it yet. This is just another sign of the times we live in. I do not think there is even close to enough evidence to make a case here. I will watch the show and that is what the producer wants. For those of you who care Mark Chapter 13 would be a good read and I will not go on about this because it is all written that these things should come to pass before the second advent.

What's evidence got to do with it ? As you say, a "sign of the times" anybody will put on a show, regardless of taste, or quality, anything to make a buck.
And they keep airing them, because people keep watching them.

I used to find myself asking why does the quality of T.V. suck so bad. But then I realized, they keep playing what everyone keeps watching.

There are so many channels and they have to fill them with something. Trash for the most part and your right that evidence does not matter but the fact that the media is in a full frontal attack on Christians. Me and my wife in the last year quit watching TV each day after work and listen to music and catch the news via the web and that does not take long. I do not look for it to get better as the one world order comes to fruit.

I've seen a lot of documentaries; some favor the Bible and some don't. I think documentaries just help us to form our own opinions and too many people them as absolute proven truth.

Anime I thought you did not post to threads with religion involved Hot or cold is always better than Luke warm. I had read that this show was not going to be run but this column with this thread implies that it did run. There are quite a few people on this planet that are very unhappy with this show I have not seen it but from what I have read there are a bunch of flaws in this guys theory.

Christianity, like every religion ever invented, will eventually fall out of fashion and be forgotten.

The only difference between religion and mythology is the number of current believers.

Eventually those that do not like Christianity will too fall out of fashion and out of site too and yes be forgotten. Don't worry Dee there is still time at your age to have a change of heart and I hope you do. Now as far as Dumber goes that will be a large hurdle to jump but even he still has time as long as he is still clinging to his clay shell. I think it would be the Christian thing to do to pray for you two and best wishes for you both. There is a millennium coming and school will be in session so bring you Book !

The funny part is you think you're going to be saved by a being who had his own child sacrificed...as if you are more important than Jesus Christ.

I never said I was more important than Jesus Christ or God the Eternal One but I am very happy that Christ thought enough of me and all men to be willing to go the cross to open the door to salvation and it is up to the individual to walk thru the door. I think you might call that "Choice" you are pro choice are you not ? You have that choice just as all people do. I choose to walk in the light as best as a mortal man can. That IS my choice. I see you have read the Bible or someone told you what the Bible is about that is a start. You will not be able to bait me into hate and the dark side I am a child of the day and you sir I pray you too will find the light but that is as far as I can go to help you the rest is your "Choice" ! I came to two roads and I picked the one less traveled. Funny how the critics of the Bible for the most part never picked it up and read IT. Goats to the left and sheep to the right. Tares to the left and wheat to the right. I hope you have a great day I know I will.

As I recall, Christ was sent here to be crucified, he didn't volunteer.

That's not a choice....

No one is out to change your beliefs, only to show you the absurdity in it.


.....and don't think for one second that you know more about the Bible than I do. My beliefs stem from objective reading, not blind obedience.

FYI Christ had the choice and He did not try to cut bait and run. Peter cut the ear off one of the Roman solders and Christ healed the ear and told Peter not to fight for it was written in the Old Testament that this must come to pass. You "say" you are not out to change my beliefs you are all about tearing them down. Are you a self taught atheist ? I could use the word blind to describe you but obedieiant would not be a good description of you. I have no problem with you believing what ever it is you want after all it is your choice. I do pity you for your foolish attacks on Christians and the Bible. You say your a "confirmed Catholic" but you do not believe in Christ or the Bible ? Which side of your mouth are you talking out of today or is the noise you make coming from some other part of your body

Not only can't you show that Christ had a choice, you can't produce one shred of evidence to support any miracle in the Bible other than the bible itself, which as we all know, was written by man.....the single most deceptive creature this planet has ever seen.

Long story short, you have nothing more than blind faith to support your opinions....and as I stated, I'm not out to change your opinion, just to make you admit the truth.
