Hey everyone. It’s been a long time since I posted, but I’ve been around, just watching the forum mostly. I’m posting this now because I need some help from men of truth.
A few months ago, when I was working at a local company, I was talking with different people in the company about Christianity, the Bible, Islam, etc. One in particular was sort-of interested.

A lot of his statements I couldn’t answer. Textual problems have to be taken one at a time, slowly, and sometimes take a lot of time to figure out. Having a whole bunch thrown at you all at once is just overload. But I’ve spent a lot of time researching many of the things that contradict in our B…
