Religious Humor

A little girl became restless as the preacher’s sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, “Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?”

Christian Classics Ethereal Library

ChristianClassicEtherealLibraryLogo.jpgLike the website mentioned yesterday, here’s another one you can get lost (or found) for hours in.
It’s called the Christian Classic Ethereal Library and is at this location: http://www.ccel.org/
Pay them a visit. There is a tremendous amount of matieral on their website. Once you register you can download hundreds (or maybe thousands) of outstanding bible resourses.
One interesting item is that you can download many items in either Adobe or Microsoft Word format.

Liberty Home Bible Institute

Going Back To The Basics
Isn’t it amazing that now 27 years after becoming born again, I have returned to the basics?
I used to watch Rev. Jerry Falwell’s “Old Time Gospel Hour” on TV when I first became saved. I always enjoyed his programs and his style of preaching. I’m not sure when the Liberty Home Bible Institute was formed, but I think it was sometime in the mid 1980’s.
I can remember getting literature from them from time to time. I used to help underwrite a college schlorship for a student at Liberty University. It was much, but I think I contributed about $15 a month for a year or so. In return, Falwell sent me several items including a wonderful study bible and Willmington’s Guide to the Bible.
I considered signing up for the bible course several times over those years. Back then, before CDs and DVD, all lectures were sent on cassettes. Now you have the option of either getting the lectures on cassettes, CDs, or on a preload iPod.
If I remember correctly the course was about the same cost back then. The course currently costs $1,250. You get 240 lectures on 138 CDs, plus some books. Also, if you pay the course upfront they knock $300 off the price.
Below is some advertixing material I found about the program:

  • 240 lectures on 138 high-quality CD’s, textbooks, and the professors own study notes.
  • Willmington’s Guide to the Bible is your textbook. The most comprehensive Bible guide anywhere. It contains more than 1,000 pages that take you chronologically through the Bible
    from Genesis to Revelation and the 12 major Bible doctrines
  • Comprehensive mid-term and final exams to test your progress
  • 6 (optional) Electives to expand your knowledge
  • PLUS… an all-new 12-lecture course, THE LIFE & TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST on either DVD or VHS
  • Upon graduation, a beautiful Diploma in Biblical Studies from Liberty University, suitable for framing
