Back to Beginning – Christiane Amanpour

Last night I watched the ABC News special “Back to the Beginning with Christiane Amanpour
“takes viewers on the ultimate road trip traveling to the lands of the Bible to explore the fundamental roots of three religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and the powerful stories that inspire billions.” It is touted as “Friday’s #1 Show”

I have always appreciated Ms Amanpour as a reporter and journalist as she usually brings a new perspective to current events. On this documentary though, I feel she totally missed out. Nothing original, nothing new. To me it was just the home movie of a families vacation through Egypt and Israel with a few stops along the way. I turned it off before the end.

Her primary message seemed to be how historical evidence did not match with many of the Biblical accounts. Most Christians, possibly Jews and Muslims as well, know this already and their faith is not based on the absolute accuracy but, the message the Bible expounds. What most researchers find and are amazed at is how often the historical and archaeological evidence proves how accurate the Biblical accounts actually are.

How many non-believers and skeptics will be turned off religion by her documentary?
Was that her reason for making this report, disprove the Bible or make it repugnant?

  1. Slavery, murder, rape, genocide…

    Nobody has to MAKE the Bible repugnant. It already is.

  2. As usual, somebody who knows nothing about the Bible condemns it. The laws of Moses prohibited enslaving free men and where corrupt modern mis-tranlations say “slave” it means “servant”. There is no blessing for slavery as it is known today. St. Patrick shamed Europe into giving it up then, and William Wilberforce in England, and Christ-followers are battling modern-day slavery today everywhere while atheists whine about Christians and slavery. Bwah.

    Rape was always condemned, wife abusers too. The Canaanites were already genocidal, sacrificing their babies to Molech, and God’s people were ordered to leave the women and children alive. And the tribes like the Gibeonites who made peace lived on.

    I know your government indoctrination centers (aka “public schools”) hid this history from you, so now you know…
