Summer Reading

My DH got me started on a Jeffrey Archer binge lately, just finished "Kane and Abel". I enjoyed it, although...well, it was one of his earlier works so perhaps that might be a reason that I found portions of it good and some portions of it were so-so. Overall it was an enjoyable read.

Recently I saw one of the complainers against God and His word say that the book of Daniel is one of the problematic areas that caused this person to think the Bible is not true...then as I sought out more info (I admit that Daniel and the 70 weeks prophecy is not a strong area for me) and found this:

It is true that you will find whatever supports what you want to believe. If you want to believe the Bible is true, of course you will seek the information that substantiates and confirms that idea. If you want to believe those who hate the Bible and hate the God of Israel and distrust Jesus sacrifice for sin, you will seek the sources which will support you with the "proof" to further entrench you in that kind of thinking as well. I guess it is clear whose side I'm on. ;-)

Opposing viewpoints are of course allowed here, however, I will limit such discussions to two or at most three further comments on one topic, so do try to get all your criticisms in while keeping that in mind, and don't take it personal....I just don't want to be bogged down with a constant barrage of replies that go on and on like a dog chasing it's tail in circles.
