If Biblical events were covered by today’s media

The news media is infamous for making the news fit the narrative they want us to us to hear. What is even more pathetic how little effort we make to see through their silly nonsense. So can you imagine how our intrepid reporters would have reported on the prophets and finally Jesus? Well, someone has, and they haven’t even gotten into how the news media would have misquoted the prophets and Jesus.

    1. Is it not strange that even though the Bible is thousands of years old, it is still the most current and timely news report we have?

      Read the “news”. Listen to the “news”, but I rarely watch it. When I am at the gym, I just turn on the “news” to get the adrenaline flowing so my creaky old body will move.

  1. Actually, even the conservative fox news would chase down the sources and cone up with no basis in history. They wouldn’t be able print it without getting sued for printing fiction as actual news

      I think you have seriously mistaken notions of how libel laws work. Otherwise, those who believe the Bible could sue you, but that is another subject.

      Like my namesake, I am a skeptic. Yet I am satisfied with the credibility of the Bible. I have very little trouble finding misrepresentations in the news media and by supposedly respectable figures like our president. I cannot find any such misrepresentations in the Bible. I can find parts i don’t understand, but I cannot find a statement that is untrue, and many people wiser than I have had the same experience. You haven’t? I suspect that is something you will have to work out with our Lord.

      1. Great observation Tom, and many people who read the scriptures and appreciate the jewels therein agree.

        Not understanding parts………………..and finding statements that are untrue……….is a rock solid reality.

        And truth be told, the more we understand the parts that are somewhat ‘easier,’ then the more ‘difficult’ things also become easier. God does not try to trap or trick us, but soft hearts are a necessity if we are to progress in His revelation.

        Here a little, there a little……..seems to be a good rule of thumb. Now there is great argument as to WHAT is easier to understand, but yep, God’s word verifies itself. It’s all good, very good.

        1. Yes CT, and rather genius of God to not need ‘verification’ by the universities of the world.

          If Cambridge giives an ‘amen’ to scripture, great, if Harvard says ‘no tkx,’ God’s word is not moved.

          After all, it is HIS univers—-ity….. And of course, higher learning has it’s place; but men stop short when they do not recognize the Highest of all.
