Споры вокруг обломков Ноева ковчега продолжаются

Редакционная статья
Published May 1998

ЦРУ и военная разведка США не сдержали своего слова и не рассекретили снимков загадочного объекта на склоне горы Арарат. Возможно, они засомневались в целесообразности предания огласке «араратской аномалии», ибо ее обнаружение результат разведывательных полетов самолетов-шпионов над территорией СССР. Американский офицер Эд Дэвис лично видел Ноев ковчег на Арарате в годы Второй мировой войны, когда находился в Иране. Офицер вспоминает: «Однажды местный мальчишка поведал мне о ковчеге. Получив разрешение от командования, я вместе с ним и его дядей решил подняться на Арарат. Спустя 3 дня на «вершине воскресения» на удалении мили я увидел обломки судна, нижняя часть которого была обледенелой. Оно было трехэтажным. Корма разрушена. Животные, скорее всего, располагались в нижней части ковчега, так как именно там находилось больше всего помещений. По словам русских, при изучении судна в годы Первой мировой войны они обнаружили металлические решетки. Однако я их не видел. По-моему, – указывает Дэвис, ковчег, равно как и все его части, были выполнены из дерева». По словам офицера, еще одна часть ковчега находится в 3 милях от «вершины воскресения» на противоположном склоне Арарата. О горе Арарат как месте нахождения Ноева ковчега, не считая Ветхого завета, говорится в книге Марко Поло. Известно также, что в 1856 году трое английских ученых решили взобраться на вершину Арарата с тем, чтобы доказать, что Ноева судна, там нет. Однако опровержения Библии не последовало. Спустя 10 лет другой европеец совершил восхождение на гору. Хотя ковчега на высоте 5 км он не увидел, зато обнаружил древесный брус, явно обработанный рукой человека. Последующие 3 экспедиции в конце прошлого века увенчались некоторыми успехами: их участники видели корабль и даже изобразили его на рисунках. В 1915 году, как свидетельствуют архивные данные, русский пилот, совершая полет над Араратом, также обнаружил обломки ковчега, о чем незамедлительно рапортовал военному начальству. В годы Второй мировой войны двое советских летчиков после выполнения полетного задания также сообщили, что видели «судно в ледяных оковах». Один из них впоследствии бежал в Америку, где представил запечатленный на фото объект спецслужбам. Возможно, он был первым, кто заснял Ноев ковчег. Некоторые ученые заявляют, что хранящиеся в секретных досье спецслужб США фотографии дают практически полное представление о Ноевом ковчеге.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes
