spoke to me
1)Sept 2003: I was down Pittsburgh, and I heard a voice
that said,"Good News". It confused me, but I
felt compeled to come home to my old church.
2)When I arrive home, I recieve a Good News Bible in the
church from my dad.
3)I had never heard of this Bible before in my life, the
"Good News" I was spoken to was manifested in
a Good News Bible yourself. www.bibles.com
just take my word for it. Lets investigate the bible's
14:6) Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth, and the
life; no one goes to the Father except by me."
Jesus claims he is the way to God. Jesus claims people
should try and live in the way he did. No one but Jesus
is sinless, but we should try to live in the way Jesus
Jesus claims to speak the truth and be true. His words
and actions follow this claim. Much of this investigation
examines this claim. Once one accepts Jesus as truth,
his other claims can be accepted.
Jesus claims eternal life for all. The better you lead
your life in this life, the greater your rewards in heaven.
He claims also that evil people will be sent into eternal
who's reading this right now is thinking different things.
There are a few groups of readers that I really want to
target. Most of all, I want to appeal to Reader group
#1 who say, "Religion is just a method of control
on people's lives. People get scared of going to hell,
so they join an organized religion. I'm not gullible so
I'll live any way I want."
To reader group #1: I'll try to help you realize that
Jesus is the truth. Instead of focusing on hellfire as
a means of control and exploitation by the ruling class,
we'll first examine if Jesus is someone to trust. Once
you have trust in what Jesus says, then you can believe
the Final Judgment(Matthew 25:31). Judgement is actually
his last teaching before the plot against him in the book
of Matthew. You may interpret this ordering has a reason:
Jesus may want you to believe in him before having you
accept such a grave situation.
I will also look at the bible as a whole to support Jesus'
claim of truth. The bible is completely true, yet group
#2 says, "Science, logic, or reason proves parts
of it false. Since the bible is supposed to be completely
true, yet part is false, the whole doctrine is false."
Nothing proves the bible false. I will still dedicate
a few chapters to debunking popular claims. I will not
deny logic, but how it's applied. Some people can not
fathom the unlimited scope of God's power to shape or
change the universe. If you're really hung upon 'evolution',
'the age of earth', 'Noah's flood', or 'bad translation
of the bible' its probably best that you skip ahead to
those later chapters now to get the weight off your chest.
It would be tough for someone to continue reading this
if they think they could prove part of the bible as false.
While the later chapters deal with debunking attacks on
the bible's truths, these first chapters will focus on
building up your trust in God. Many people don't want
to be suckered, so they don't immediately trust other
people. Many people build up trust over time. Even with
time you may never fully trust a person. But the son of
God claims he can be completely trusted. We can use our
traditional reasoning skills to see that Jesus is true
in many actions and false in none. As you see more and
more instances of Jesus being true, your leap of faith
to trust him fully will be lessened. To some deep thinking
minds, the bible makes sense, but group #3,"Might
not have had time to read and deeply consider it."
Hopefully sometime while reading this book your interest
becomes sparked in the bible. I encourage you to drop
this book, and read the bible as soon as you feel inclined.
Do not read this book thinking it's crib notes for the
bible. This book is intended to appeal to your sense of
logic, and reason. It will provide you with strategies,
and angles to consider about the bible that perhaps were
unknown to you. And once you got a foothold on truth,
the rest flows naturally. While its not a 'Proof of God',
it shouldn't have to be. You can think for yourself.
point 1: John 5:30-5:47 Jesus speaks of his witnesses.
John is a witness to Jesus being the son of God. God the
Father is a witness, because he arranged that Jesus' deeds
show his divinity and truth. The scriptures also predict
Jesus' coming and deeds including what Moses wrote.
Truth point 2: Jesus was prophesized in scripture, as
Jesus claimed in John 5:30-5:47(Truth point 1) Prophesy
is difficult. There are no known prophets in the world
that have had their predictions come true. All modern
prophets who try and predict the future have been proven
to be fakes when what they predicted did not come true.
There were some false prophets in the bible, and they
were proven wrong too. The prophets in the bible that
proclaimed God's message were always correct in their
prophesies. They predicted the success and failure of
nations, kings, armies, cities and people(read the old
testament to see for yourself). The prophets came hundreds
of years before the birth of Jesus. The prophets prophesized
about the Messiah, and every word they spoke came true
in the life of Jesus. Isaiah 44:6-44-8 The Lord, who rules
and protects Israel, the Lord Almighty, has this to say:
"I am the first, the last, the only God; there is
no other god but me. Could anyone else have done what
I did? Who could have predicted all that would happen
from the very beginning to the end of time? Do not be
afraid, my people! You know that from ancient times until
now I have predicted all that would happen, and you are
my witnesses. Is there any other god? Is there some powerful
god I never heard of?" Examples: (Note to self-Add
more examples, there are tons) 2a:Isaiah 44:21-28 - Note
that the body of Jesus is commonly referred to as the
foundation of the true temple of God. In one way the prediction
is for the rebuilding of the physical temple, in another
way it's the prediction of the savior. 2b:Isaiah 44:17-32
point 3: John16:16-16:24 Sadness and Gladness-Jesus predicts
his own death and resurrection. His accurate prediction
is a sign of divinity and him telling the truth. Also
seen in Matthew16:21, Matthew 17:22 and Matthew 20:17-20:19
So to conclude, God is loving to us in that he sent his
own son to take up the cross. Out of love Jesus endured
the ultimate suffering of all time past and to come.
Beefboy appreciates getting an e-mail from Bibleman, but

(anyone who plays second fiddle to Scott Baio has to suck
a lot of cock)!
had to edit this e-mail for space. The fucker who sent
this to me had 10 "Truth Points". Man, it's
unbelievable how much you can achieve when you're celibate!
get about one of these religious form e-mails a week.
I would respect the sender more if he wrote something
directly to ME, not just copied and pasted some fucking
novel for the Beefboy to read.
you want to send the Beefboy a Bible, or the Koran, or
