And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

    Why trust the Bible?

    Have you ever wondered or had someone ask..Why trust the Bible? Use this link to discover more.  Get Yours Today..Click Here

    Throughout history people have wondered, "What if the Bible was tampered with?" The bestselling Why Trust the Bible Pamphlet reassures Christians that the BibleCAN be trusted. The stories and text were passed down with amazing reliability. And the Bible was hand copied for centuries with amazing accuracy. Full color and glossy, this 12-panel pamphlet is an excellent teaching tool for new believers and for those who have questions about the Bible's origin. Author Timothy Paul Jones is a professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.
    Size: 8.5"x 5.5" unfolds to 33" long. Fits inside most Bible covers.
    Popular books and movies promote doubts about the authenticity and accuracy of the Bible. Some suggest that the Bible is an ancient document that has been edited so many times that it is now filled with errors. Why Trust the Bible Pamphlet equips believers to defend assaults against the Bible and to defend the faith. In five important questions, the author addresses what the skeptics claim and what history actually tells us. A time line reveals the development of key writings, the emergence of the biblical canon, and more. This great reference tool proves that the Bible can be trusted!
    Author Timothy Paul Jones, Ed.D., states without a doubt, "The Bible can be trusted." In clear, concise language, Dr. Jones reveals the errors in the critics' logic and facts, and does it in an easy-to-understand style using helpful charts, time lines, and explanations.
    This pamphlet gives clear responses to the following claims:
    • False Claim: The Gospels were written long after Jesus lived and were written by people who weren't eyewitnesses.
    • False Claim: The stories about Jesus' life and death were not handed down reliably and not recorded accurately.
    • False Claim: The Bible is full of textual errors, as proven by the Dead Sea Scrolls.
    • False Claim: The New Testament wasn't finalized until hundreds of years after Jesus and his disciples, so there could have been many other "gospels" accepted and later rejected, in addition to the four Gospels found in the Bible today.
    • False Claim: The originals of the Bible are lost; therefore, we have no way of knowing what it actually said.
    • False Claim: The Bible was edited by people who had an "agenda" and changed many teachings.
    Among the many sound reasons why we can trust the Bible are exciting facts such as:
    • Each of the four Gospels represents eyewitness testimony about Jesus Christ. For example, Mark's Gospel is Peter's testimony and Luke's Gospel is Paul's eyewitness accounts recorded by his physician, Luke.
    • Documents such as the Dead Seas Scrolls and Masoretic texts reveal that biblical texts agree nearly 99 percent of the time.
    • The 27 books of the New Testament that we have today were mentioned in a pastor's letter in AD 367, and were recognized before that date.
    • A time line shows the years of Jesus' ministry shown side-by-side with key writings reflecting witness testimonies.
    Timothy Paul Jones is a professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. In addition to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biblical literature and pastoral ministry, Timothy earned a doctorate in educational leadership from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He received the Baker Book House Award for excellence in theological scholarship, as well as the North American Professors of Christian Education Scholastic Recognition Award for his doctoral work in the field of spiritual formation. @rosepublishing

    Your Life's Goal

    If you are a Christian your primary Goal in Life is found in the Bible.

    Philippians 3:13-14
     I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.  13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us

    Romans 8:28-30
    And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.  29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.  30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.

    1 Corinthians 9:24-27
    Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!  25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.  26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.  27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.

    Philippians 3:3
    For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort,

    Colossians 2:18-19
    Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on pious self-denial or the worship of angels, saying they have had visions about these things. Their sinful minds have made them proud,  19 and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.

    2 Timothy 1:8-9
    So never be ashamed to tell others about our Lord. And don’t be ashamed of me, either, even though I’m in prison for him. With the strength God gives you, be ready to suffer with me for the sake of the Good News.  9 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.

    Hebrews 3:1-3
    And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest.  2 For he was faithful to God, who appointed him, just as Moses served faithfully when he was entrusted with God’s entire house.

    Hebrews 3:3    But Jesus deserves far more glory than Moses, just as a person who builds a house deserves more praise than the house itself.  4 For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.

    Hebrews 6:1
    So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.

    End Times Questions

    End Time Study is fascinating to some, overwhelming to others and avoided by many. This is an area filled with opinion and surprisingly many Christians do not know the scriptural passages that are key to forming and understanding on these issues.

    So Why Don't Christians Know the Scriptures about the End Times?

    Jesus talked a lot about the end of time and his second coming. These are key teachings that every Christian should know. So why don't they?

    Perhaps the topic seems too complex or too confusing. And that's a shame because it doesn't have to be.

    Over the next several days we will discuss these passages so that you can be better equipped in your daily life with God.

    Rose Guide to End Time Prophecy is an easy-to-understand overview. It helps you understand key portions of Scripture and explains different ways that Christians have interpreted them. Simple charts and illustrations help you see the whole picture.
