  • I am often perplexed by those who do not believe the Bible is real or believe in Jesus.
    Hundreds of original manuscripts of the Bible exist today. Hundreds of eyewitnesses saw Jesus crucified and rise. These are the documented facts.
    The Bible is not some elaborate fable or book of thoughts. It is no less than the inspired word of God.  There have been many manipulations of what the Bible says by various religions, but its words are the same today as they were 2,000 years ago.
