In his new Book, "God, Yes! Hell, No!" the Author, John Alexander Baker, quotes and questions passages from within the Bible. He very clearly points out inconsistencies, discrepancies and outright contradictions.
After more than forty years of reading and studying the Bible, from cover to cover, John was still very much perplexed by it. He also read many books on Prophesies and even explored other religious views. But, there were still some things that bothered him as not seeming quite right. So, in 2010, John decided that he was going to read the whole Bible through again very carefully and make notes. This time, he was going to study it with a completely open mind, not as a believer and not as a disbeliever. The experience was very enlightening.
The author shows, beyond any reasonable doubt, that there is no place of "Eternal Punishment," (Hell is only the grave) and that there are many books missing from the Bible, which are mentioned in the Bible itself. He shows how both Hell and Religion have actually "evolved" in the Bible. To ignore the evidence laid out by the author, in his book, is to "intentionally" hide the truth from your self. That means that you would "choose" to be "Self Deceived," rather than believe the truth that is presented very clearly in this book.
Don't be like an "Ostrich." An Ostrich buries its' head in the sand because it doesn't want to know what's going to happen next. The author likes to think of his book as an "Alarm Clock." If you set your alarm, it will wake you up at the correct time. If you read his book, it will be like setting that alarm clock. It will, "Wake You Up."
"God, Yes! Hell, No!"
There is a good reason that the Bible is not fully understood. The author uses the Bible itself to support his conclusions.
This revelation can lift a heavy burden from humanity by removing the blindfolds from their eyes, unplugging their ears and opening up their minds from the "Prison" of "Blind Faith." It is a comforting revelation. The Bible interprets the Bible.
And Jesus said unto them, "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
How many times and how many people have ever accomplished this feat of moving mountains? It's never been done as far as we know. Does that mean that no one's faith has been strong enough to move the mountains? Or, is this a fairy tale story like Peter Pan, in Never, Never Land, where you can fly if you "Believe" strongly enough?
The author challenges any faith based religious leader, prophet or self proclaimed Messiah, to show us how powerful their faith is. If they have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, then they should be able to cast a mountain into the sea. But, the author will even make it much easier for them. Under controlled laboratory conditions, let them tell a "Ten Pound Rock" to cast itself into the sea. That should be easy and simple enough for them.
Are there any religious leaders who would accept this challenge? The author has "Faith," that there isn't any.
