Easter Sunday April 5, 2015, Resurrection of Jesus, Christian beliefs v science, Shroud of turin cannot be replicated today, Foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32


Don’t believe in the miracle and impact of the life, death and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth?

Consider this.

Look at the world before his birth and then reflect on his impact:

Transformed the Roman Empire.

Caused a message of love and peace to be spread throughout the world.

Inspired some of the greatest art produced.

Was the catalyst for the invention of the printing press and subsequent spread of knowledge.

Transformed the Vikings from barbarians to believers and church builders.

Inspired Johann Sebastian Bach.

Inspired Martin Luther.

Inspired and motivated the early settlers of the US.

Inspired and motivated the founding fathers of the US.

Was the catalyst for removal of slavery in the western world.

Inspired and motivated the US and western nations to repel the fascism and tyranny in WWII.

Inspired and motivated the US and western nations to overcome Soviet communism.

Science v Religion.

“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”…First Corinthians 1:25

From Citizen News April 4, 2015.

“Can Christians Believe in Science and the Resurrection?”

“Was the resurrection of Jesus Christ an anti-scientific event? This question was discussed at a March 13 conference on science and religion hosted by The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion.

At the end of a panel on “Science Engagement in Congregations,” an audience member who identified himself as a rabbi said “the elephant in the room has not been discussed,” which he identified as, “that the fundamental basis of Christianity is a violation of nature.””


We know vastly more today about physics and the universe than we did 100 years ago. But the more we learn the more mysterious and mind boggling it becomes.

From Citizen News April 3, 3015.

“We live in an Orwellian age of misinformation, secularism and attacks on Christianity.

That is why the truth is so important about the essence of Christianity.

Not necessarily what people say about Jesus and Christianity. But what Jesus said, did and endured.

First from “The Case for Christ” by  Lee Strobel.

What struck me the most from the book, when I was first introduced to it years ago, was the fact that there is much historical evidence of the life of Jesus.

From the publisher.

“A Seasoned Journalist Chases Down the Biggest Story in History Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? Strobel’s tough, point-blank questions make this Gold Medallion-winning book read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it’s not fiction. It’s a riveting quest for the truth about history’s most compelling figure. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ? ‘Lee Strobel probes with bulldog-like tenacity the evidence for the truth of biblical Christianity.’ Bruce M. Metzger, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary ‘Lee Strobel asks the questions a tough-minded skeptic would ask. His book is so good I read it out loud to my wife evenings after dinner. Every inquirer should have it.’ Phillip E. Johnson, Law Professor, University of California at Berkeley”


From the documentary.

“The documentary The Case for Christ follows reporter Lee Strobel as he interviews a number of religious and historical scholars in order to find out if there is any proof of the resurrection, and to discover the historical veracity of the New Testament. In trying the case for Christ, Strobel cross-examined a number of experts and recognized authorities in their own fields of study. He conducted his examination with no religious bias, other than his predisposition to atheism.
Remarkably, after compiling and critically examining the evidence for himself, Strobel became a Christian. Stunned by his findings, he organized the evidence into a book he entitled, The Case for Christ, which has won the Gold Medallion Book Award for excellence. Strobel asks one thing of each reader – remain unbiased in your examination of the evidence.”
Mark Antonacci, an attorney and agnostic and another author, became a believer after researching the Shroud of Turin.
From the Amarillo Globe News April 14, 2001.

“Mark Antonacci said he was a committed agnostic until he stumbled upon an article about a subject he would eventually spend nearly 20 years researching.
Antonacci, a St. Louis lawyer, is author of “The Resurrection of the Shroud.” He spoke in a telephone interview about his book about the cloth that he and others believe wrapped the body of Jesus Christ.
His book delves into questions about the wounds suffered by the man whose impression is on the shroud, the shroud’s history and scientific challenges to the carbon dating of the shroud.
Now a Christian, Antonacci said much historical, medical and archaeological evidence exists to prove Christ’s death was consistent with Gospel accounts. The evidence he said he found changed his mind about God.
“I came to the conclusion that the literal, actual crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ occurred,” he said.
So why did it take nearly two decades to publish his book?

“I just had no idea the breadth of the evidence and the difficulty in finding a publisher,” said Antonacci, whose publisher is M. Evans and Company Inc. in New York.

Antonacci said scientists from many religious and nonreligious backgrounds have examined the shroud, and none think it is a forgery, although they have varying opinions about it. The shroud has been kept in Turin, Italy, for the last four centuries.”

Even if you are a believer, you need to have a better understanding of the suffering that Jesus endured.

Here is a small sample of the scourging impact revealed by the shroud.


If you have not seen the History Channel documentary on the Shroud of Turin, I  strongly suggest that you do.

Is this the face of Jesus?

    Watch: Ben Carson Says Obama Could Be Guilty Of Treason
    He’s adamant that national security cannot be compromised.

    Justin Koski — February 18, 2015

    Former neurosurgeon at John Hopkins Hospital, author, and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson joined Newsmax TV’s America’s Forum to discuss a multitude of topics when he dropped a bombshell on President Obama about national security.

    Carson was asked by host J.D. Hayworth on what advice he could give to the Senate and House leadership regarding the funding for DHS, and he opened up with a verbal salvo.

    “I would say break the funding for Homeland Security up into parcels. Don’t present it as a whole bill. That makes it much more difficult for him to stand in the way,” Carson began. “And, if he does stand in the way, particularly with things that are vital to the security of this county, then I think we can start talking about treason.”

    Hayworth had to stop and make sure Carson said what he meant.

    “If things are done that are on the contrary to the security of this country, whoever does them is guilty of treason,” he explained.


  4. Well is it starting. The middle east is on fire, and what is Obama doing? Nothing ! How much more can we take with this sick person in the White House trying to kiss Iran’s ass. Good for Israel. Do it again.
    Report: Israeli Jet Struck Weapons Depots in Libya

    Arab news sources say a jet destroyed warehouses in southern Libya that held weapons bought by Iran for Hamas.

    By Gil Ronen
    First Publish: 4/4/2015, 9:51 PM

    Arab news sources reported at week’s end that an unidentified jet believed to be Israeli destroyed warehouses in southern Libya that held weapons bought by Iran for Hamas.

    According to the reports in Al Watan and other news outlets, the warehouses were completely destroyed. The weapons that were inside them had allegedly been purchased by Iran, by means of weapons dealers in Sudan and Chad, and were supposed to be smuggled to Hamas through Egypt, by means of the smuggling tunnels between Sinai and Gaza.

    The destruction of the weapons stores in southern Libya was carried out in coordination with the Egyptian security and intelligence apparatuses, the reports claimed.

    Al Watan added that Egypt allowed the Israeli jet to pass through its airspace en route to southern Libya.



  5. Well, I haven’t posted in a while. A month in the hospital, chemo treatments for nearly eight months, some rather nasty things in between and wishing that the treatments would release me back to a regular life, but that isn’t always how it works. Regardless of that, I’ve missed out on a lot of the news, though there were times when I tried to come in and read. Wasted time as “chemo brain” only allowed so much news retention.

    Only one question: Are we any closer to getting rid of the fraud usurper and his family in the white house or…….? I’m seriously not asking for my benefit, but rather that of my 3 children & their spouses (all middle aged) and for my seven grandchildren ranging top to bottom in ages from 24 to 12.

    Thanks ahead of time for anyone trying to catch me up to date. I know it will be a task and I appreciate that effort,.

    Does this sound to you like what the usurper has done, as he claims to be a Christian? He’s no Christian he’s a liar.

    Happy Easter.
