Sodom & Gomorrah Archaeological evidence
THIS FILM IS FREE AT http://www.realdiscoveries.org/
A real life adventure and journey to the most barren territories on this planet. Join us as we consult Scientists, Geologists, Archaeologists and Mineral experts. DON'T
CONDEMN IT. BELIEVE IT.
WHY are there so many Christians who are like Doubting Thomas?
Who will refuse to believe something without direct, physical evidence when presented with archaeological evidence confirming the Biblical stories that we read? When archaeological finds confirm historical facts that confirm Biblical history it all adds weight to being able to prove to the world the accuracy of the Bible.
Even if Bible discoveries can't be fully explained why would any believer want to disprove it just because he can't prove it? or does not believe it.
As Christians we know that our mission is to intercept those who are sadly heading for the Gates of Hell and each one of us need to be aware of the urgency of the hour in saving our 'neighbour'.
Bible Discoveries with evidence of the accuracy of the Bible provide us with great tools when we are witnessing to our 'neighbour'.
Bible Discoveries are important as they challenge the concept of evolution that is being presented as factual in our schools and accepted by many as scientifically backed up by evidence. Evolution leads to atheism.
The Apostle Paul writes 'Prove all things' and this involves being open minded to new discoveries that provide wide ranging evidence of the accuracy of Gods Word.
If The Shroud of Turin wasn't that important then why would the Lord preserve the most important event in the world on two cloths?
Why would Barry Schwartz, a Jew, turn from his own faith to prove to the world that this cloth was indeed the cloth that was wrapped around a tortured, crucified man, clearly visible to our eyes today?
Is that why God chose one of his own people a Jew, Barry Schwartz, to become the greatest expert on The Shroud of Turin and prove not just to the world, but his own people the Jews, that this cloth with a 3D Image of a man was not created by any artistic means currently known to mankind. And that it is impossible to create this 3D Image, showing that Jesus was indeed crucified and resurrected. It supports and confirms the four Gospels of the Bible and even with today's technology still cannot be disproved.
Why would leading scientist, Ray Rogers, a director of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STRP) conclude that the 14ft long linen cloth was a fake. He was a spokesman against the authenticity of the Turin Shroud and concluded the wrap was a medieval hoax. Interestingly he has now concluded it could be the burial gown of Jesus!!
From beyond the grave he has admitted the shroud is far older than results suggested — and could be the genuine article as many Christians claim.

Jesus taught us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. (LUKE 10:27)
Are we using every tool the Lord has given us to prove to the unbeliever that Gods word is true? No I don't believe so. Is scepticism of new discoveries that act as Gods tools in proving the Bible actually standing in the way, which in return is condemning our neighbour and widening the path to HELL?
Clearly we have been given these tools as believers, by the Lord to prove:
1- He loves the world John 3:16.
2- His word is true and can be proved
DO YOU HAVE STRONG FOUNDATIONS?
We also have to ask ourselves why would Jesus warn us that believers in the last days would turn from their faith. 'At that time, many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other'. Matthew 24:10
I personally believe that one very good reason for believers turning away from the faith is because of weak faith.
Weak faith comes from weak or non-existent foundations.
Bible Discoveries strengthens the believer as Archaeology proves the Bible, helping to provide evidence which in turn shores up faith. There we have another good reason why the Lord preserves Bible Discoveries.
The more the believer believes, the less doubt he will have and then the stronger he will be. But, if a believer is deceived into thinking certain discoveries are false scepticism can weaken his faith. I find the more discoveries I believe in the stronger I become. In fact, I find Bible Discoveries are positive tools and resources that we as believers can present particularly to those wanting evidence before they make a step of faith.
