Same as Breitbart.
It’s interesting that with all the modern technology, no one has been able to duplicate this “medieval forgery.”
Even if the shroud was the burial cloth of Christ, even if certified dead people came back to life speaking of the horrors of hell; if stubborn sin ridden folk don’t want to submit to God then they’ll come up with any excuse not to do so!
The Shroud of Turin proves for all time the greatest of all miracles, the resurection of Jesus, and not just that Jesus is for REAL.
The Shroud of Turin controversy is meaningless. You either believe or you don’t.
When the previous tests were completed on the Shroud (back in 1988 or so) I was stunned to watch the evening news and have them declare that the dating tests placed the Shroud as being from the 14th or 15th Century.
I remember asking the person next to me: "Didn't the same reporter just say the cloth was repaired using period cloth because of a fire during thin 1532?"
The person next to me said: "Yeah, that's what he said."
And both of us looked at each other, and then the TV screen where they declared the entire Shroud as a Medieval forgery.
Call me crazy, but not only was that all bad science, it was duplicitous and blatantly dishonest - by all parties involved: the scientific community, the Vatican, and the news media.
It almost seemed as if evil forces were at work.
In the past few years, using the latest computer and forensic technology, the Shroud has yielded even more evidence regarding a three dimensional image that NO OTHER piece of cloth from history has.
There are powers at work here beyond science. I believe God has left us the Shroud as a road marker of ultimate faith - either you take read the road marker and heed it, or you don't and drive off the cliff.
People should realize where that cliff ultimately leads if they do not have Christ in their lives.
It is the ultimate doom.
"Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
What I find ludicrous about the notion of a medieval artist having painted the shroud is that during the medieval era, artists did not fully understand perspective, which is why figures look “flat” and two dimensional on the canvas. Yet on the shroud you can see depth in the figure. I could never understand how the medieval artist hoax theory ever got traction for that reason,
People who don't believe in Jesus Christ need to not believe in the Shroud.
As opposed to those who think Jesus was scotch taped to the cross?
Jesus resurrection is a matter of faith. Either you believe the Lord rose or you do not. I do not need a bunch of liberals, who were not there, who have their anti-Christian, anti-Jesus, pro-homo agenda, telling me. The Bible is good enough for me. It was good enough for my great-great grandparents, my great grandparents, my grandparents, my parents. Thus, it is good enough for me. Their faith, even way back then, led down through the years, before these homo lovers came to the front, taught us the Bible is the TRUTH. I don’t doubt it. Those that do, do so at their peril. I will not argue with anyone about it. If you don’t believe, then you had better be correct. If you are wrong, you will regret for all eternity your decision. I believe, thus I am not worried about it. My eternity is secure in the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua.
You are correct - He IS risen and all any “proof” does is to provide a gap for the Evil One to insert his wedge. Burn it and be done with it (not a real proposal - just my opinion).
Another Shroud article for the Shroud Ping list. Sorry I missed it earlier.
Would anyone believe in Christ Jesus, regardless of any artifact, other than Grace; the key, to a responding soul.

too many people making the shroud an idol
:) Jesus is who he said he is.
I say, hey you, get off of my shroud!
