    Did A Historical Jesus Exist?

    By Jim Walker originated: 12 June 1997 / additions: 30 Jan. 2011 Amazingly, the question of an actual historical Jesus rarely confronts the religious believer. The power of faith has so forcefully driven the minds of...

    The South, Slavery And The Bible

    I always wondered how Southerners justified slavery. My research has disclosed that all the clerics--the ministers, preachers, etc.--were staunchly in favor of slavery because slavery was in the Bible. Jesus never condemned slavery as a sin. The old testament was filled with...

    A Christian's View

    Yes, Christianity is not what Jesus, the apostles, or even I want. The problem with Christianity is its hypocrisy. My former friends are Christians who just don't care enough to serve, but they'll put a nice happy face for Jesus in church. Many Christians think that they...

    What Is Christianity All About? Hmm...

    I really like the pic used for this group. The sign says, "So... What is Christianity all about?" Well let's see, it is actually quite simple. The belief system basically has the message, "Believe, worship, or burn forever!". All of the good stuff found in the Bible, about loving...

    Bible Camp Night Sweats

    I was raised by a staunch Babtist. Every summer I was carted off to bible camp for two weeks. The camp was actually fun, but each evening we were herded into the camp chapel and told horror stories about life after death for non-believers. I used to cringe and dread each...
