Our Christian foundation is what makes our university unique. This is the place to bring prayer requests, discuss theological issues and how to become better Champions for Christ.

#305069 And at least Sly will be excited about the proposed location. :wink:

A nationally known arts-and-crafts store chain has been purchasing rare Bibles and other manuscripts to fill a proposed National Bible Museum.

Hobby Lobby recently announced it had been collecting a variety of materials, such as Hebrew scrolls, medieval manuscripts, and an assortment of Bibles and rare books, since partnering with a group that came up with the idea for the museum.

Steve Green, president of the Oklahoma-based company, says tentative plans call for a 300,000-square-foot facility to be located in a major metropolitan area that would provide an interactive history of the Bible...

Green adds that a search is on for a suitable location for the proposed museum. Though no final decision has been made, Dallas is currently a frontrunner.

:lol:

Seriously, I would've expected them to set it up at ORU since they run that joint now. That'd be great for SumItUp.

PS -My wife is addicted to Mardel.

#305109 Texas is the buckle of the Bible belt. There is actually a Biblical antiquities museum on the campus of Houston Baptist University.

Looks like they weren't doing their collecting in the proper way:

#533462 What makes it potentially worse is the fact that Al Qaeda and ISIS have been the major antiquities dealers in that area for years. There's a strong possibility that they were literally funding terrorism, even though they obviously have plausible deniability.
