"The Author of the Bible"

Minority Report : Dissecting authorship of the Bible

In the above article, the Israeli software is trying to find out who the actual authors of the Bible are. Since we already know who the recorders and THE Author is, then these "findings" will only lead to dissension and doubt. That basically is the bottom line, as we see it.

The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Bible and He cannot be "analyzed" by any computer. So our Faith is well grounded in the truths and accuracies of the Bible. -- Jim Goodrick



Last eve I passed beside a blacksmith's door,
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
Then, looking in, I saw upon the floor
Old hammers, worn with beating years of time.

"How many anvils have you had," said I,
"To wear and batter all these hammers so?"
"Just one", said he, and then, with twinkling eye,
"The anvil wears the hammers out, you know."

And so, thought I, the anvil of God's Word,
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon;
Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unharmed---the hammers gone.

Side by Side

They lie on the Table side by side
The Holy Bible and the TV guide
One is well worn and cherished with pride
No not the Bible, but the TV guide.
As the pages are turned, what shall they see.
Oh, What does it matter turn on the TV
So they open the book in which they confide
No not the Bible the TV guide.

The word of God is seldom read.
Maybe a verse before they fall into bed.
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be.
Not from reading the Bible, from watching T.V.

So then back to the table side by side,
Lie the Holy Bible and the T.V. guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the word.
The plan of salvation is seldom heard.
But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
Is found in the Bible, not on the T.V.
