Of all the books written throughout history,
there is
none as hated, banned, criticised, ridiculed, and destroyed as the BIBLE.
Yet, it still exists.

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Isaiah 40:8
A list of some of the men who have set out to

destroy and eradicate the Holy Scriptures over the years.

Roman Emperor Diocletian

An edict, in 303, to destroy the scriptures and to stop Christians from worshipping Jesus Christ and to destroy their scriptures was issued by Roman Emperor Diocletian. Ironically, 25 years later his successor, Constantine, issued another edict ordering 50 Bibles to be published at government expense.


Voltaire (a French atheist) said in 1778, that the Bible and Christianity would cease to exist in 100 years... "within 100 years, the Bible and Christianity will be swept out of existence, and pass into history."


In 304 A.D, the Greek philosopher, Porphyry, tried to destroy the credibility of the BIBLE. In the process he wrote fifteen books against the BIBLE and Christianity in general.


Lucian, Greek writer of satire, wrote two books in the second century to ridicule the BIBLE. "The Dialogue of the Gods" and "The Dialogue of the Dead". There's a good chance you don't have a copy of these two books. Yet you probably have a BIBLE .

Joseph Stalin

After the death of Lenin until his own death in the fifties, Joseph Stalin was the leader of the U.S.S.R.. During his time, an attempt to wipe the Bible from the minds of the people, he instituted a "ban the Bible" purge in the country. His attempts were futile. A pole was taken in recent years that showed the people believe in God and His word more than ever.

Pope Innocent III

Early popes opposed the translation and even reading the Scriptures. In 1199, Pope Innocent III made an order for all Bibles to be burned.

Robert Ingersoll

Atheist Robert Ingersoll once boasted, "within 15 years I'll have the Bible lodged in a morgue."
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Psalm 12:6-7
These scholars listed below are a portion of the men who have

set out to disprove the Bible, only to become believers themselves.

Past Skeptics Who Became Bible Believers.
General Lew Wallace (1827-1905)
Sir William Ramsay (1851-1939)
Modern Skeptics Who Became Bible Believers.
Dr. Richard Lumsden (1938 - 1997)
Lee Strobel (1952 - Present)
Josh McDowell (1939 - Present)

Sir William Ramsay - 1851-1939
Professor of humanity at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland

In his time he was the eminent authority on the geography and history of Asia minor (modern day Turkey). As a Bible rejecting skeptic, he described the book of Acts as "
…a highly imaginative and carefully coloured account of primitive Christianity."

Sir William Ramsay spent years of intensive study and came to this conclusion, "
I take the view that Luke's history is unsurpassed in regard to it's trustworthiness … you may press the words of Luke in a degree beyond any historian's and they stand the keenest scrutiny and the hardest treatment." After his intense study he afterward became an avid defender of the Word of God.

General Lew Wallace (1827-1905)

"General Lew Wallace was a Territorial Governor following the days of the U.S. Civil War. He had been a Senator in Indiana at the age of 29 and was considered a very scholarly man. He had no confidence in Christianity or the BIBLE, so he set out to write a skeptical book to disprove both. In his study he instead found the BIBLE and Christ to be true, and became himself a devout Christian. General Wallace never wrote his book against the Bible. He wrote instead the classic Christian novel Ben Hur."

Much more to come...
