Roman Aquaduct

Roman Aquaduct - Ceasarea

Roman Aquaduct – Ceasarea

Fresh water was supplied to the bustling city of Ceasarea via this aquaduct built by the Romans around the time of Christ.  Water comes from a spring near the base of Mt. Carmel, about eight miles north.

Imagine the engineering and planning it took to build this magnificent structure.  The water flows by gravity alone, no pumps, so the trough had to flow downhill continuously for eight miles, over hill and dale to its final destination.  If the grade selected for the trough was too steep, the trough ends up far short of its goal.

What’s more impressive, the route from Mt. Carmel went over rocky and mountainous terrain; over 4 miles was cut through solid rock.  Now that is engineering!

Thought for the Day:  Therefore O students, study mathematics and do not build without foundations.         Leonardo da Vinci

  2. THE INERRANT PREACHER BY STEVE FINNELL

    Where do people look to find the inerrant preacher? Answer. They look at the pulpit of their local church and see an infallible preacher standing there. Is is not amazing that he was so easily located?

    When young men attend Bible college or seminary with aspirations of becoming a preacher of God’s word. Are they encourage to prayerfully search the Scriptures for the truth?

    Too many, if not all, Bible colleges and seminaries are nothing more than institutions established to indoctrinate men into believing the man-made traditions of a particular denomination, cult, or a group of independent churches.

    Why is it that every preacher that graduates from a Baptist college preaches Baptist doctrine?
    Why does every preacher from a Methodist college preach Methodist doctrine?
    Pentecostal preachers preach Pentecostal doctrine.
    Catholic priests preach Catholic doctrine.
    Lutheran preachers preach Lutheran doctrine.
    Quaker preachers preach Quaker doctrine.

    Should not a Christian going to Bible college, graduate, and then preach Christian doctrine.

    Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'”

    We are told to live by the word that proceeds from the mouth of God. There is no instruction to located an “inerrant preacher” and follow his teachings.

    There are no inerrant preachers, just an inerrant Bible.

    If there are 12 different preachers who are proclaiming 12 different ways of being saved; then at least 11 of those preachers are in error. At least 11 of the preachers are teaching the commandments of men. Did they learn those different terms of pardon from the Bible or did they learn them in Bible college and seminary?

    THERE ARE NO INERRANT PREACHERS——ONLY AN INERRANT BIBLE!
