PBS is set to 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", scheduled to air on November 18, says the Bible is not true.
Producer Paula Apsell said: "It's 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."

Hmmm.... really.....

Among highlights (or lowlights) of "The Bible's Buried Secrets":
• The Old Testament was written in the 6th century BC and hundreds of authors contributed.
• Abraham, Sarah and their offspring didn't exist.
• There is no evidence of the Exodus.
• Monotheism was a process that took hundreds of years.
• The Israelites were actually Canaanites.
• The Israelites believed that God had a wife.
Although PBS does broadcast some quality programming at times, this story is a perfect example of why I don't send in my contribution.

Oldest New Testament Heads To Cyberspace

More than 1,600 years after it was written in Greek, one of the oldest copies of the Bible will become globally accessible online for the first time this week. On Thursday sections of the Codex Sinaiticus will be available on the Internet. Images of the Gospel of Mark, several Old Testament books, and notes on the work will appear on as a first step towards publishing the entire manuscript online by next July. Dating from around 350 AD, the document is believed by experts to be the oldest known copy of the Bible, along with the Codex Vaticanus, another ancient version of the Bible.

Family Tree

My Uncle Jim designed this Family Tree and presented it to us at the Lange Family Reunion in Indiana. Needless to say, we were all amazed at how wonderful it turned out, and thankful for all the time and effort he put into this. Thanks Uncle Jim - Great Job!

Langes Invade Indiana

The 2008 Lange Family Reunion took place at Brown County State Park in Central Indiana last week. The weather was mild, the scenery was beautiful, the company was first rate, and a wonderful time was had by all.

"Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!"

the starry host

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?

He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls them each by name;
Because of His great power and mighty strength
not one of them is missing.

Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of heaven and earth. (Psalm 33)
