This Politically Correct Bumper Sticker
(shown here in black) is strictly for the
naive & gullible among us!
Every religion symbolized on this B.S.
believes that it alone is the only correct
way but all are false except the ONE WAY
provided for us by the Creator God of the
Bible. Weep & cringe for the driver who
displays this because their ultimate end
(unless they accept God's ONLY WAY)
is eternal destruction forever! So sad!
The Roman emperor Diocletian,
following an edict in 303 A.D.,
failed to stamp the Bible out.
The French Revolution could
not crush it with secular
philosophy (Rousseau, one
of its heroes, converted to
Christianity). The Communists
failed to stamp it out with
atheism and political ideology.
One might well ask why this
book has been banned, burned,
and bludgeoned with such
animosity and scorn. The
great Reformation hero John
Calvin responds in this way:
"Whenever people slander
God's word, they show they
feel within its power, however
unwillingly or reluctantly." - Joe Boot
I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying
the really foolish thing that people often say
about Him [Jesus Christ]: "I'm ready to accept
Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't
accept His claim to be God."
That is the one thing we must not say. A man
who was merely a man and said the sort of
things Jesus said would not be a great moral
teacher. He would either be a lunatic - on a
level with a man who says he is a poached
egg - or else he would be the Devil of Hell.
You must make your choice. Either this Man
was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman
or something worse...
You can shut Him up for fool, you can spit
at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can
fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God.
But let us not come up with any patronizing
nonsense about His being a great human
teacher. He has not left that option open
to us. He did not intend to.
-- From C.S. Lewis
(Author of The Chronicles of Narnia)
The Bible claims to be the Word
of the only true God. In addition
to historical, archaeological, and
scientific proofs, there are numerous
internal proofs. No such evidences
exist for other "sacred writings."
The Bible was written during 1,600
years by 40 prophets, most of
whom lived in diverse cultures,
at different times in history, yet
who never contradict but comple -
ment each other. For the Qur'an,
Muslims must take the word of
Muhammad, just as the Book
of Mormon rests solely upon
Joseph Smith's word. But every
biblical prophet is confirmed
by 39 other prophets.
- Dave Hunt
God designed humans to want
to believe in something. That's
the image of God that is in us.
But as G. K. Chesterton famously
put it, when we reject the God
of the Bible, we don't believe
in nothing; we believe in everything --
including Little Green Men.
- Chuck Colson
The Bible is the best of all books,
for it is the word of God and teaches
us the way to be happy in this world
and in the next. Continue therefore
to read it and to regulate your life by
its precepts. - John Jay, letter to
Peter Augustus Jay, 1784
I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever
given to man. All the good from the Savior of the
world is communicated to us through this book.
- President Abraham Lincoln
For we must consider that we shall be as a City
upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.
So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this
work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to
withdraw his present help from us, we shall be
made a story and a byword throughout the world.
- John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630
It is impossible to rightly govern the world without
God and the Bible. - Attributed to President George Washington
The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature,
with a power that conquers all that oppose it. - Napoleon
That Book accounts for the supremacy of England.
- Queen Victoria
Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth,
and the life. No one can come to the
Father except through Me. - John 14:6
Nor is there salvation in any other,
for there is no other name under
heaven given among men by
which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12
Exhausted mothers. Fathers fearing for their families. Children dying of thirst and hunger. Brand new babies delivered with no medical assistance. Dehydrated elderly. These are just some of the dire circumstances the Yezidi community has faced since being forced to flee their villages for the top of Mount Sinjar, Iraq, after terrorists from the Islamic State attacked them for their religious beliefs Aug. 2.
The UNC math professor said,
"Now class, we know their are
60 seconds in a minute, 60
minutes in an hour, 24 hours
in a day, and 365 days in a
year, so who can tell me how
many seconds there are in a year?"
All the students looked baffled
by the question except Rufus,
who raises his hand and waves
it excitedly. "Yes, Rufus, how
many seconds are there in a
year?" the math professor asked.
Replied Rufus, "Twelve, m'am.
January second, February
second, March second..."
Three women appeared in court,
each accusing the others of causing
the trouble they were having in the
apartment building where they lived.
The women were arguing noisily
even in the court. The judge,
banging his gavel to quiet them,
said, "We are going to do this
in an orderly manner. I can't
listen to all of you at once.
I'll hear the oldest first."
The case was dismissed for
lack of testimony.

Jesus Movie (1100 Languages):
A man walks into a restaurant
with his pet alligator under
his arm. "Do you serve tax
collectors?", he asks the
"Of course", says the barman.
"Well," replies the man,
"I'll have a root beer,
and my alligator will
have a tax collector."
There was this fellow from UNC
who had a flat tire. He pulled off
on the side of the road, jumped
out of his car, walked down the
hillside and picked a bunch of
wildflowers, and proceeded to
put one bouquet of the flowers
in front of the car and one behind
it. Then he got back in the car to wait.
A passerby studied the scene as
he drove by and was so curious
he turned around and went back.
He asked the fellow what the
problem was. The man replied,
"I have a flat tarr."
In response the passerby asked,
"But what's with the flowers?
The man responded, "When you
break down the State of North
Carolina tells you to put flares
in the front and flares in the
back! I never did understand
it neither cause the tarr is still
