Introduction

This page links to selections of Bible passages on topics such as what Jesus and others said about caring and prejudice, the miracles, death and resurrection of Jesus, what the Bible says about the first Christians, how the Bible says Satan operates, and false Christian teaching.
There is also an article here about scientific findings that seem to fit far better with the Bible stories of the creation of the first animals and humans by God and the flood in the time of Noah than they do with evolution.

There are also links here to articles about the evidence for the accuracy of the Bible and God's existence, supposed contradictions and errors in the Bible, interesting stories of people who became Christians - some renouncing atheism or risking persecution for it, stories of people who went through other poignant experiences such as breaking away from harmful cults and other organisations, and information on cults, psychics, and churches that distort Bible teaching or do questionable or harmful things.
I have chosen these articles with care. However: please heed a Caution against believing everything.

Science And The Bible

Noah in his Ark!
Wow! Who would have thought it?... Science That Backs Up the Bible and Opposes the Theory of Evolution.

Note: While it's interesting to look at alternative viewpoints to the conventional scientific teaching on evolution, it must be remembered that, along with the related Bible quotations, they're linked to here simply for educational purposes - it's important not to be dogmatic about them, or to view such things as necessary to a Christian faith. The Bible often only gives us sketches of the bare outlines of things it says happened, and so an overly-simplistic view of what may have happened in the dim and distant mists of prehistory may lead to a complete and unnecessary rejection of faith because of disillusionment if a more complex understanding of what can currently be pieced together by scientists is gained. Also, medical techniques have been developed using the particular evolutionary principles that have been demonstrated to exist, - (which doesn't mean it's finally been decided that bacteria are our ancient relatives after all, but that change within certain species has been observed to happen - something not many people would deny). Those evolution-inspired medical techniques are actually helping mankind. That of course is the main goal of Christianity, so those developments are in line with it. Thus, it would be wrong for anyone to reject evolutionary principles wholesale. For a description of some exciting new medical and other developments, see: Evolutionary Biology: Technology for the 21st Century.
