A dozen times the New Testament refers to the Old Testament as the Law and the Prophets.

Actual Dates and 14C Dates — Michael J. Findley

Please forgive the oversimplification. But radiocarbon dating, like all radiometric dating, begins with assumptions (beliefs, paradigm) and uses those beliefs as proofs of dates.

What Does the Bible Teach about Immigration? — Michael J. Findley

In spite of many social justice warriors attempting to force the Church to take care of unbelievers, the words immigration, immigrant, and emigrant are not in the Bible.
