The Bible is TRUE!

Newsflash!
I enjoy collecting information about studies that relate to some aspect of the Bible. Over and over, social science data tends to confirm the Scriptures.

A new study verifies the truth revealed in Paul’s statement in the Bible that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.

Paul didn’t say that money is the root of evil---although I’ve heard people misrepresent the Bible as supposedly saying that. Nor did he say it’s the lack of money that is the root of evil, although I’ve heard some people say that’s what it should say.

Yet I’ve known some poor people who were very greedy, and some rich who were not.

Well, a new study validates what the Bible said 2,000 years ago---not that it needs validation---that the love of money is indeed a corrupting influence.

Writing for CNBC, Mark Koba penned a report, “Just the Scent of Money is Corrupting: Study.”

Koba writes, “The report by University of Utah and Harvard researchers found that individuals who could gain monetarily through unethical behavior were more likely to demonstrate that behavior than those who weren't offered a financial gain.”
It's a pity there weren't other books on earth that mentioned this tendency, but few are as perspicacious as crazy desert zealots. This certainly confirms the story of Jesus filling up a pig with demons.

...I think the University of Utah and Harvard researchers should get themselves a camel and a needle, just to check.

They claim to love these empirical analyses of biblical reality, but when I offer my own evidence-based proof that there is no god and the so-called 'scriptures' are nothing but a bad attempt by first century farmers to explain and influence a world they were incapable of understanding, suddenly it's all "but mikey, it's about FAITH".

Roger that, sucker...

Obviously the only possible course of action is to cut taxes for rich people.

Who would have believed that people might do things for money that they would not do in the absence of remuneration?

Previously only religion could explain these mysteries, and then along came SCIENCE.

"None at all, y'hear. And I am not being defensive!!"

Biggest question: Is demon-stuffed pig as good as turducken?

THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE ALONE

Should mankind use the Bible and the Bible alone for teaching faith and practice? If God's truth is the template for you, then the Bible should be your source for truth.

THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES ARE NOT RELIABLE SOURCES FOR GOD'S TRUTH.

1. Quote from Pope Francis May 22, 2013: "The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not evil. All of us. "But Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.' Yes he can..."The Lord has redeemed all of us,all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us not just Catholics Everyone! Father, the atheist? Even the atheists. Everyone! ....We must meet one another doing good. ' But I don't believe, Father, I am an atheist! But do good:we will meet one another there."

2. Quote from Billy Graham October 20, 1997: "I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ......He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world,or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ,because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."

3. Quote from Doctrine of Covenants -section 130:22 (Mormon supposed divine revelations): The "Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were is not so, the Holy Ghost could not dwell in us.


GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE.
