I was wrong, they are an American company.
The main reason for their programming seems to be to sneer at Christianity. I’d be happy to be proven wrong with this one.
All the same, you do have a valid point. I think they did some show, “what Jesus’ family looked like” and that might have come from England.
And then, on the other hand, I’ve seen their shows speaking about Jesus of Nazareth and the show was rather straightforward, I do believe on Christmas day, they showed something like that one morning.
I find it hard enough to find the station anyway with all the satellite channels nowadays but this one sounded positive but we won’t know until we see it.
The other day, TBN was showing “Lillies of the field”, the original with Sidney Poitier(sp). There are some good shows to be found.
It was rather interesting. A couple who had read about the results of the Carbon 14 dating had questioned the findings, because they'd done research showing that the areas of the Shroud that were subjected to the dating, could have been taken from an area of the Shroud that had been re-woven in the middle ages. To them, that explained why the spread of time of the dating was so broad.
Rogers, who was one of the original scientists on the study, at first dismissed the couple's findings, because they were not even scientists. He complained to the photographer, and said that he could prove them wrong in 5 minutes. The photographer just told him to go for it. Rogers was shocked to find that the couple WAS right!
The final part of the show mentioned that the reliquary for the Shroud had been treated with a substance that would keep insects from attacking it. That treatment would keep the Carbon 14 dating from being accurate, but there are some areas of the Shroud that were removed before it was returned to the treated reliquary; the ones that were from the areas that were burned in a fire in the 15th century. It's possible that these areas, when the carbon from the fire is removed, could go through the dating process again. It will be interesting to see if Church officials, and the scientists, will agree to do it.
