The Genesis Flood and Babylon

January 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 51

"Civilizations and the Queen of Heaven" I write about how myths arose from Babylon and spread to Greece, to Rome, and into our culture today. One of the arguments used by modern day critics of the Bible is that clay tablets from Nineveh, dated to the 7th century B.C., record a story of a great flood, and that this tablet predates any Hebrew parchments. Some critics conclude therefore, that the Hebrew account in Genesis of Noah's flood is only a "re-write" of the Babylonian myth, and not inspired by God. These two ancient texts (the Babylonian tablets, and the Bible), have some similar points, but differ substantially. The assertion has been that the Noah account is not "God's Word" and only a re-write of this Babylonian myth. As published in "Acts & Facts" November 2011, archaeologists have pointed out that there is a much older tablet from the Babylonian city of Nippur dated to 2200 B.C. (catalogue # CBM 13532), and it totally agrees with the Noah account in Genesis, imagine that! This conformation of Scripture is ignored however, in our educational institutions and school books. I would seem that there are some disagreements with the Word of the Creator and with what some people think of as science!

It may also be noted how the Zodiac (Mazzaroth in the Hebrew -- Job 38), seems to actually tell the story of salvation from the very beginning of creation when God created the stars, and named them. The names of the stars in the constellations (which are historically agreed to), seem to tell God's story of salvation. Today, of course, the Zodiac has been perverted into astrology, and made to look "foolish" as a "plaything" to amuse the naive. Also, the story of Jesus has been perverted by our education system, by implying that other ancient mythological god stories (which pre-date Jesus), were credited with many of the same miracles which Jesus performed, implying again that Jesus is only a copy of the myths of older cultures. These "similar stories" have one-by-one all been discredited, but they remain in many school books and popular media culture. How sad that God's Word, the Truth of life itself, is ignored by the "popular" segment of our world and transformed into a "myth" that people can write off as childrens stories!

Let's RIGHT the wrong being done to our Creator, and stand up to the pagan views!

The written Word of truth is being turned into a dung heap by people who have no faith whatsoever in it! We have seen documented proof that shows the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, and the truth that can set you FREE! If you would like to see how you can help transform the lives of people then Click Right Here and see what we can together we can do to turn this around!
