The tax-payer funded Public Broadcasting System (PBS) will present a program this fall that says the Old Testament is a bunch of made-up stories that never happened. "The Bible's Buried Secrets" says the Bible is not true. It is scheduled to air on November 18.
Archaeologist William Dever said: "...It's (The Bible's Buried Secrets) designed for intelligent people who are willing to change their mind. …it will give intelligent people who want to read the Bible in a modern way a chance. If we insist on reading the Bible literally, in 25 years, nobody will read it any longer."
The implication, of course, is that people who take the Bible literally are not intelligent! The Bible has been read literally for thousands of years, so we can be sure that Dr. Dever's proclamations are nothing but empty rhetoric.
ABR asks that you pray for:
1. The ABR ministry to continue to provide materials and research to refute programs like "The Bible's Buried Secrets".
2. William Dever, who has been a well-known and respected archaeologist for decades, but continues to attack the Scriptures with such outrageous statements. Pray for his return to the evangelical roots of his youth.
3. For the youth of America not to be taken in by such anti-Bible propaganda.
