Know The Answer?
Who am I: I'm really into bushcraft and the outdoor life. I love beans! Red is my colour key. I lost my inheritance through a bad business deal.

John Ross Schroeder - Writer for The Good News, Plain Truth & Tomorrow's World Magazine. Compiled the Booklet: Answers From Genesis - Ambassador College Production.

The Bible is nearly always misunderstood, often maligned, misused, ridiculed, twisted and even, to some, a source of embarrassment. Yet the Western world owes more to this misunderstood book than most realize or would care to admit. Below are a few specific keys to help you improve your Bible perspective. On the opposite page are articles on the Bible's origin and selecting a translation that's right for you. What would the world be like today without the Bible? What if there were no collection of books called the Holy Scriptures? What if there were no written revelations to set moral and spiritual standards for man's various activities?

Some claim, and rightly so that biblical passages have been continuously misused and misappropriated to justify almost every evil known to man - including the use of scripture as a shield for murder: i.e., the "Christian" Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. But whose fault was that? It has been men, not God, who misunderstood misused scripture.
