Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has said the recent discoveries of desecration done to the shrines of Baal in Israel allude to specific passages of the Bible and prove the truthfulness of Scripture.
Ham, who is president of the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum in Kentucky, wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis on Thursday that excavation discoveries of an ancient city gate and shrine that the biblical King Hezekiah wanted destroyed somewhere in the eighth century B.C. point directly to 2 Kings in the Bible.
The discoveries in question were made at the site of Tel Lachish, where a city gate which once contained a sacred shrine with two altars also came with a ceremonial toilet made for desecration purposes. more >>
NEW YORK — Mel Gibson's latest directorial feat "Hacksaw Ridge," is a masterful depiction of an inspiring but violent collision between war and faith.
The film, rated R for its intense prolonged graphic sequences of war violence, is based on the true story of the late World War II U.S. Army medic Desmond Doss.
Doss was a devout Seventh-day Adventist played in the film by actor Andrew Garfield, who despite being brutally challenged for his faith, refused to bear arms or kill. more >>
Archaeologists conducting research at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City have said that for the first time ever they have uncovered the original limestone bed where Jesus Christ is believed to have been buried before His resurrection.
"I'm absolutely amazed. My knees are shaking a little bit because I wasn't expecting this," said Fredrik Hiebert of National Geographic.
"We can't say 100 percent, but it appears to be visible proof that the location of the tomb has not shifted through time, something that scientists and historians have wondered for decades." more >>
Christ's crucifixion was an act of sheer brutality and barbarism, yet many people today still don't know the horrific details of the physical torture He suffered at the hands of Roman soldiers.
In the recently updated version of his New York Times best-seller The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus, Lee Strobel, a Christian apologist and former legal journalist for the Chicago Tribune, teamed up with Dr. Alexander Metherell to walk readers through the gruesome details of Christ's torture and crucifixion, and describe what His physical body endured before he died.
The torture inflicted on Christ was so intense that at the time, no word existed that could capture the essence of His suffering. more >>
For most Americans, the last day of October is a time of trick-or-treating, costumes, candy, and various spooky things from horror movies to haunted houses.
Halloween, the holiday most known for its playful scaring and bags of sweets, is most closely associated by mainstream culture with Oct. 31.
However, for hundreds of churches across the United States and many others throughout global Protestantism, Oct. 31 is a time to remember the birth of the Reformation. more >>
Scientists have reportedly uncovered for the first time since 1555 an ancient slab inside a chamber in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which is believed to have once held Jesus' body.
The National Geographic reported that the slab in question had been covered by marble cladding since at least the mid 16th century.
"The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it," said archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert, a partner in the restoration project at Jesus' tomb. "It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid." more >>
