The Christian partnership between The Associates for Biblical Research and Sourceflix is critical to the mission of ABR. Joel Kramer, Director of Sourceflix, and his team are working tirelessly in Israel. They are producing Biblically sound, cutting edge, and powerful video material to demonstrate the historical reliability of the Bible, and to launch devastating refutations against skeptical and archaeological arguments that undermine the Bible.

Joel is an enormously dedicated friend of this ministry. He has freely donated hundreds of hours of his time to help ABR operate our excavation in Israel, has provided ABR with excellent video material to uphold the authority and inerrancy of Scripture, and continues to work tirelessly to fulfill the call God has placed on his life, the life of his family, and the Sourceflix ministry. Without his generous efforts to assist ABR, the challenges involved in running our excavation at Khirbet el-Maqatir would be much more difficult.

ABR rarely, if ever, admonishes our supporters to give financial assistance to other ministries. We believe very strongly in the ministry of Sourceflix and its mission. Their friendship is critical to ABR's work.

Joel and his team need your help. And by helping them, you are also supporting the ministry of ABR to continue defending the Bible through archaeological and Biblical research. Donate to Sourceflix today!

United Methodist Seminary Goes "Multi-Faith" posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

Claremont Seminary was founded in 1885 as a Methodist seminary. In the 20th century it followed most other Mainline Protestant seminaries into theological liberalism, which morphed into radicalism in the 1960s. The devastating results of compromise with modernist, relativist thinking can be seen in this seminary's recent decision. Although most Christians who hold to any semblance of orthodoxy would find this decision to be woeful, this is merely the logical and natural result once the authority, inerrancy, infallibility and veracity of Scripture are abondoned for post-modern dogma. The roots causes can most often be traced to the blind acceptance of Darwinism and various versions of the JEDP hypothesis.

Noah’s Ark, or … What? posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

At present, there is considerable confusion mingled with curiosity on the announcement, by a team from Hong Kong now known as Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI), of their discovery of wooden constructions under the ice 4,200 m (14,000 feet) up on greater Mt Ararat. Press conferences have been held, involving Turkish government representatives and academics, which have presented the finds in a way which indicates the belief of both NAMI and the Turkish officials that this is highly likely to be the remains of Noah’s Ark.

At the same time, rumours of a staged hoax, giving significant detail, are circulating strongly...
