  5. Hey y’all. I’m 26, sitting by my partner, and scrolling through what feel like hundreds of posts from my teenage account on here. I thought a lot of those posts were vanished like MySpace, but evidently CTF is like an online time capsule from my emo phase when I was at one of my lowest points in life. God is good, life is okay, and grad school is still going on as I work on my history PhD with zero job prospects for when I’m done. Lol. I have adjuncted and taught college a bit. I hope everyone has had a good new year and If any old timers remember me, feel free to add me on Facebook (Ben Schaffer)

    Just saw your post saying who you were. How are you doing? We RPGd together some I think. I remember being a little intimidated by your writing I think actually! Though idk, can't really reember. I think for me I'm less impressed with how well I wrote back in the day (cause I didn't really) than I am just amazed at the amount. How did we have the time? Or motivation? haha

    Happy new year! It's the start of the new decade.
  21. At the bottom of this post is a link to the true, nearly 2000 year old image of the man who speaks to Apostle Paul in Acts 26:28 of the New Testament and also a link to a photo of the 2700 year old Wall of Jerusalem from the book of Isaiah, chapter 36. Purdue University scholar, professor Dr. L. Mykytiuk, published an article in a Bible archeology journal which lists 53 biblical OT people proven by scientific archeology. (I give the link below.) He has another article about historical proof for Jesus: Google "Mykytiuk Jesus BAR article". There are also over 12 people in the New Testament that have been also proven to exist. Even if there were no scientific archeological proof for a single person in the Bible(but of course there is) we could still be certain that the Bible is true because of the measure of faith God(Christ) gives us. Faith is a real thing and it is the most powerful and best way we can figure out what the truth is.(The Truth is of course Jesus of Nazareth.)Faith also comes from hearing the Word of God- which is the Bible of course(See Romans 10:17). LINK: -- https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/people-in-the-bible/50-people-in-the-bible-confirmed-archaeologically/ However since Jesus Christ is Almighty God and he created us, he knows we have weaknesses such as having a bit or even almost total doubt that Christ is God and what he has so lovingly done for us(his suffering, shedding of his blood, and death on his Cross and resurrection 3 days later.) After all, one of his chosen apostles, Thomas, who spent 3 and 1/2 years with Lord Jesus, would not believe until Christ Jesus let him touch him after his bodily resurrection. So God has made available many evidences that prove that the Bible is true and can be trusted. Jesus declared in John 14:11 that we should at least believe in him by his works/miracles. One of the greatest works of Jesus ,through the Holy Spirit, is the Bible itself. And the Lord Jesus has allowed for the people, the places, prophecies and even a couple of miracles, of the Bible to be confirmable(provable). (However we still need to put faith in Christ no matter if absolutely everything in the Bible is someday proven. Faith is important always.) Romans 8:15 in the New Testament says we can call the Almighty God :"Abba, Father". I call him " Dear Heavenly Dad". He has you in his heart and is thinking of you all of the time! Wow, we can actually call the Almighty God(Jesus and the Holy Spirit are also Almighty God, but we do not call them Father) "our heavenly Dad". Even the angels of God, whom God loves, are not permitted to call him this. This the greatest love and honor that God can give anyone. It is all thanks to our most beautiful, sweet Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 6:18 says that born again Christians are "sons and daughters" of Almighty God. You are so special to God thanks to Christ Jesus. ****Did you know that there was a woman Apostle named Junia? Dear sisters and brothers when this world gets too difficult to bear and tries to drag you down or insult you in every way possible, remember you are Princesses and Princes of the Royal family of Almighty God and nothing can ever take that away from you. You, who love Jesus Christ, mean everything to God Almighty! Our Almighty Father is always thinking of you with great love-thanks to Lord Jesus. (So talk to him daily!) Psalm 56:8 says God collects all our tears in his bottle. However Jesus said that we will have troubles in our life. Yet he promised to send us the Comforter(the Holy Spirit) to be With us and strengthen us ,through the many troubles of our life on earth. We will never walk alone ever again. As I was saying before, our God, Jesus, speaks to us through his Word, the Bible. Scholar Lawrence Mykytiuk's article which I put a link to near the beginning of my essay, shows that 53 OT people have been absolutely proven to have been real historical people.( ***Many more could be proven but sadly too many factories, apartment buildings, shopping malls, highways, roads and millions of houses have been built in the Holy Land and so archeologists cannot dig deep into the past everywhere and so will possibly never find proof for the rest of the people of the Bible. )Thankfully-in fact miraculously- we do have over 65 biblical people that have been proven including 6 ancestors of Jesus mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew 1:6-16! These are: King David(a female archeologist discovered evidence for David),Aziah, Uzziah, King Hezekiah, Manasseh, and Jeconiah. The Holy Spirit knew we would find proof for these special relatives of our God ,Jesus, so that is why the New Testament starts of with listing these people. God wants us to know that we can fully trust the real stories in the New Testament! King Hezekiah, a 100% proven ancestor of Christ, was a friend of the great prophet Isaiah! God loves you so much and does not want you to have a single doubt that the Bible is really true that he has enabled archeologists to find proof that the book of Isaiah is really true! Remember Jesus quoted from the book of Isaiah more than any other Bible book. Isaiah 9 has the famous prophecy of God coming to Earth as a son(a man).( Click the Link below to see the actual wall of Jerusalem from the year 700 BC[700 years before Jesus was born!] which the people of Jerusalem sat on in the book of Isaiah 36 and which the great prophet Isaiah saw everyday. LINK: https://www.windowintothebible.com/hezekiah-and-Jerusalem Below is a LINK true picture of King Agrippa the Second ; he actually speaks to Paul in Acts 26:28! https://cccrh.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/king-agrippa-ii.pdf
  22. Here is a proven true image of Salome, from Matthew 14:1-12. The image was made of her when she was much older than she was when she danced at her step-father's birthday.(She was certainly there at her step-father Herod Antipas' palace when Jesus was forced to appear in front of Herod Antipas before he was crucified. It is amazing that even small details of the Gospels of the Bible can be proven true. Salome Here below is the proven image of King Agrippa the First. He is told of in Acts 12, New Testament, where he is said to have killed Apostle James and put Peter in prison. ***In my next coming reply way below, I show the true picture of King who speaks to Apostle Paul in Acts 26:28!! Also I show the true wall that the people of Jerusalem sat on(700 years before Jesus came to Earth)as told of in Isaiah 36 in the Bible's OT. *images used under "Fair Use Copyright Law"
