Biblical Archaeology Reproductions....

For many years the accuracy of the Biblical record was never questioned, but over the last century or so the Bible has been under attack like never before. The accuracy of the historical narrative of the Bible is being questioned throughout the media and the scholarly world. Many claim that the Biblical account is not true and cannot be trusted, that it contains many historical errors. Biblical Archaeology is showing that the Bible can be trusted when you look carefully at the evidence. Some organisations like the "Associates for Biblical Research" are working tirelessly to set the record straight.....

There are many resources available for use in private study, for church presentations and for use in the public arena.
Biblical Archaeology reproductions are available on our Biblical Archaeology page.
Study materials are available through the Associates for Biblical Research.
There are many resources available.

The Cracked Pot

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

'I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.'

The old woman smiled, 'Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?'

'That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.'

'For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.'

The Moral of this story is:

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

SO, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

~Joel Osteen

Prayer of Salvation

 

"Father, it is written in your Word that if I confess Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from the dead, I shall be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord. I make Him Lord of my life right now. I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead. I renounce my sinful past. I thank you for forgiving me of all my sin. Jesus is my Lord, and I am now a new creation. Old things have past away; now all things become new in Jesus name. Amen."

If you have prayed this prayer sincerely, contact us through our contact page and let us know your address and we will send you some free gifts to welcome you into God's kingdom.
