Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Gotta Love it...

"Hey Ray. Nice cartoon Gunther made for you this time -- lust, greed, lies, blasphemy, theft. All of these things can be found in the Bible and then some. Gotta love that old time religion!"

The Bible has a whole lot more then lust, greed, lies, blasphemy, and theft in its many pages. It's full of adultery, murder, rape, jealousy, pride, incest, hatred, homosexuality, fornication, and torture, just to name a few.

Perhaps you are not aware that the Scriptures mainly relate the history of the Hebrew nation. It begins with the creation of the first male and female and their tragic fall from fellowship with their Creator. This didn't come because of the eating of an apple (as many believe). It came through the sin of disobedience (see Romans 5:19). Then Scripture traces the same rebellion as it manifested itself in the whole human race. The Bible doesn’t hide the sinful heart of man. It exposes each man’s wickedness and warns that God has appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness. So whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of writing off the Bible as being evil, when it simply exposes evil. Has it exposed the evil in your heart yet; or aren't you aware of it?

The amazing thing about this collection of 66 books is that their common thread (through the Old Testament) is God’s promise to release mankind from his greatest enemy--death itself. The New Testament tells us how He did it. See John 3:17-18 for details.
