Proverbs 9:17-18 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

"I believed in once saved always saved", says the greedy of heart and sinful "professing Christian". Sin is Death-Darkness- "The wrath of God!"

*THE LORD'S BANNER*

HOLINESS-PEACE!__If the Son therefore shall make you free {from sin}, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36) Then said Jesus to those ...which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, {to be holy..free from this worlds lust and love for it} then are ye my disciples indeed; (John 8:31)
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)"THE ONLY JEW GOD LOVES"

Holy Moses! PBS documentary suggests Exodus not real

Hal Boedeker

Sentinel Television Critic

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

Abraham didn't exist? The Exodus didn't happen?

The Bible's Buried Secrets, a new PBS documentary, is likely to cause a furor.

"
It challenges the Bible's stories if you want to read them literally, and that will disturb many people," says archaeologist William Dever, who specializes in Israel's history. "But it explains how and why these stories ever came to be told in the first place, and how and why they were written down."

The Nova program will premiere Nov. 18. PBS presented a clip and a panel discussion at the summer tour of the Television Critics Association.

The program says the Bible was written in the sixth century BC and that hundreds of authors contributed.

"At least the first five books of the Bible come together during the Babylonian exile," says producer Gary Glassman.

The program challenges long-held beliefs. Abraham, Sarah and their offspring probably didn't exist, says Carol Meyers, a religion professor at Duke University.

"These stories are unlikely to represent real historical events, but rather there's some kernel of ancient experience in there which has survived and which helps give identity to the people at the time the Bible finally took shape centuries and centuries later," Meyers says.

There's no archaeological evidence of the Exodus, either, she says, but "it doesn't mean that there's no kernel of truth to it."

Nova series producer Paula Apsell says she found it "extremely shocking" to learn that monotheism was a process that took hundreds of years.

"I was always brought up to believe that the minute Abraham and the patriarchs came on the scene, the Israelites accepted one God and there was just always one God and that was it," Apsell says. "I think people are going to really be stunned by that."

Another shocker: The program contradicts the biblical view that the Israelites came from somewhere else into the land of Canaan. "The film shows that they were Canaanites," Apsell says.

A few years back I was in a bible store looking at bibles and checking out important passages and comparing bibles. I found that they were changing words and omitting others, just certain words or little words to twist the meaning to a much more liberal view. It’s a sad time we live in from a worldly standpoint but it’s a glorious time for its winding down to the return of Christ to the Earth to final judgment. Sales of bibles now is just a business like any other business. It’s a means of trying to turn one from real true faith a little at a time.

Picture Perfect: “Providence Pictures”
”Providence Pictures” delves into some of the mysteries of the world in their critically-acclaimed documentaries.

Founded in 1996 by Gary Glassman, “Providence Pictures” specializes in enticing documentaries on science, history, art and culture, with the goal of uncovering an almost forgotten and hidden world to the people who lived in the past, including "The Secret Lives of Dinosaurs" which aired in 1999 and "Lost King of the Maya" which aired in 2001. These compelling stories have earned critical acclaim and high ratings worldwide thanks to their engaging subject matter, seamless flow, stunning photography, powerful narrative, and simplicity into which complicated or past themes are presented. The company produces about three one-hour shows each year, but they are working toward developing more programs for the Discovery Channel in the coming year. Premiering this fall will be the company’s latest project on Egypt called "Women Pharaohs." The idea for the show came to Glassman while he was touring the ruins of Pompeii, the southern Italian city that was destroyed by a volcanic eruption. Amazingly, the city and its inhabitants were perfectly preserved in their everyday occupations and are mute witnesses to life in one of the greatest cities of the ancient world.

"I realized these people are just the same as us. I think that’s what I love about producing shows on ancient cultures," says Glassman. "Lessons of the past may illuminate our lives in the present and future."

"Women Pharaohs" narrates the history of an unknown female cult and the influence of women rulers on Egyptian society. Their names are mythic -- Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Nefertari, and Hatshepsut -- and we have read about them in history books or seen Hollywood reproductions of their lives. These icons of extreme beauty, sexual appeal, and richness, wielded unchallenged power and influence over male rulers. Archeologists have found in the excavation of the Temple of Karnak and in the necropolis of Thebes, signs that uncovered a major power source of these legendary women rulers. Statues and hieroglyphs that were found tell us that there was a 400-year period of a mysterious female cult called "The Gods Wives of Amun" which usurped the supremacy of male pharaohs.

The documentary was shot in three weeks on location during March 2001 and one week of recreation in Providence during the month of July. The footage includes amazing animation created by Meteror Studios in Montreal and a beautiful original score composed by Ed Tomney.

“In the future, the company is planning to produce more educational and entertaining shows that will unveil for television viewers the mysteries of the world.”
