About the Book

The Bible is easily the most influential and most quoted book in western society. It is revered so much that it is used to swear in to office the President of the United States, Supreme Court Justices, and other elected government officials. When the President and other U.S. government officials swear that they will carry out their duties with the help of the Biblical God, few if any are aware that according to scripture the Biblical God is actually a man. He is specifically a man of war, as stated in the following scripture, “The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name” (Exodus 15:3). Perhaps this is a reason why the United States has been at war 93 percent of the time since its existence. The Bible has had significant historical, social, and political influences on humanity. More importantly, the Bible continues to significantly influence humanity today. A specific example is today’s conflict in the Middle East between Israel and its neighbors. Israel bases its claim to the land in dispute with the argument that the God of the Bible gave them that land approximately 3,425 years ago as described in the Old Testament of the Judeo Christian bible. This book takes this same literal approach in interpreting the narrative/scripture concerning the God and events described in the same bible. A few of the many items discussed in this book concerning biblical scripture are: • The U.S. is the modern version of Old Testament Israel • That the Biblical God is actually a man or manlike entity • Inferences to very advanced technology • Inferences that Jesus of the Gospel was gay • More than one Jesus Christ • The second coming has already happened • Reincarnation concerning Jesus and the prophets • Periodic mass extinction
