Many treat the bible as fairy tales, but God has left behind some very compelling evidence for his miracles. This one in particular is important for us to take heed of, as if we don’t we may have the same fate.
There are many different Egyptian timelines, some very close to the bible, some a long way off. Which are we to believe? And are there Egyptian artefacts that corroborate the story of the Hebrews in Egypt and the exodus? Can we have a intelligent faith in the bible? In this video Ross Patterson shows some amazing evidence for the interaction of the Hebrews with the Egyptians as recorded in Genesis and Exodus.

There are some very strange ideas going around Christianity relating to the nephalim. If you haven’t heard about it, count yourself lucky… very lucky, because most of Christianity has a complex theory relating to who these “mystical beings” are. I will only cover a few here.
Author Lauren Kate wrote the book Fallen about an angel who is romantically attracted to and pursues a relationship with a human teenager. In the January 11, 2010 issue of Publisher’s Weekly (PW) on p. 13, Kate claims, “The idea for the book came from a line I read in Genesis about a group of angels who were effectively kicked out of heaven because they lusted after mortal women. I became curious about what the experience might be of a teenage mortal who suddenly became the object of an angel’s affection.”
But where do they actually get it from? This is what the bible says:The passage Lauren Kate refers to is Genesis 6:1-6…
There are many strange ideas about the flood that are usually an attempt to reconcile secular dating methods. These methods are always dubious at best, and are often over turned by further research. However, Christian’s still like to compromise.
One of these compromises is the concept that at least one of the Egyptian Pyramids found in Giza / Cairo today, were built before the flood.
But is that even possible? I believe after reading the genesis account and then the following account from SOP, you will see there is absolutely no way anything could have survived this event. And if this account isn’t enough, there is a final nail in the coffin of this theory to conclude.
