This booklet is devoted in all seriousness to rabbis, clergymen and ministers, within the wish that it
may deliver them to achieve the fraud they're perpetrating via preaching the Bible because the be aware of
God, and as an ethical and highbrow advisor for the human race.

* * * * *

From the pulpit of Calvary Baptist Church ... the Reverend W. L. Pettingill ... acknowledged this:
"Only those that think in Christ as God, in His Virgin start and
in His Resurrection within the body-the irreducible minimal of the
Christian faith-will visit heaven. those that deny all or any of
these tenets could be lost-they will visit hell" ... "We have gotten
to smoke them out," cried the reverend, and whilst he made this
last assertion i assume he forgot for the instant that he was
not dwelling within the days whilst hundreds of thousands suffered demise through hearth and
fagot for denying the very issues that he now calls for that all of us
accept. If the ecclesiastical arm have been as robust now because it was once
then, how candy could the "smoke" of my flesh be to the nostrils
of the Reverend Mr. Pettingill.

Joseph Lewis makes his case "against" either the Bible and Christianity (and opposed to Judaism to a few extent). He doesn't in basic terms supply his own opinion but additionally cites verses and passages from the Bible. He additionally cites the reviews and critiques of Christian preachers and ministers to end up his point.

One may well or would possibly not consider Lewis' arguements/conclusions, yet an individual who reads this books will see that he helps what he says with facts and/or with prior works made by way of well-known scholars.i.e. Thomas Paine.

Highly urged if you are a scholar of faith, the Bible, and/or Christianity and Judaism.
