A Museum of the Bible forms in very secular Washington

by MARIA RECIO  |  published on December 26, 2015

WASHINGTON – The National Mall may be the nation’s front lawn, but even at holiday time the museums that line it are only lightly decorated with Christmas trees and lights and not with any religious displays.

But a new privately-owned museum is going up just a few blocks away – the Museum of the Bible – that only wants to celebrate Scripture. The $400 million project two blocks south of the National Air and Space Museum doesn’t have to worry about laws or rulings that keep religion and state separate.

The museum is the brainchild of Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby, the privately-owned Oklahoma City crafts chain that follows its owners’ evangelical beliefs, including closing its 600 stores on Sundays.

Hobby Lobby became known nationally in 2014 when it won a Supreme Court decision that it did not have to adhere to Affordable Care Act requirements on birth control coverage that conflicted with the owners’ beliefs.

    Of course, I can see the atheists, etc. trying to figure a way out to stop this museum which I whole-heartedly back. It is time we let these non-believing hoods know they can’t have everything their way.

    There is no such thing as a separation of church and state. The judiciary has made a mockery of this.

      died because he broke the law in the LAND OF ISRAEL. If the Hebrews were in
      control of the LAND OF ISRAEL today and Jesus showed his head and ministered as
      he did, blasphemed God as he did and created new laws as he did and removed
      some laws as he did, he would die again, as he did.

      But the Jews are now in control so nothing would
      happen to Jesus, ministering and blaspheming God as he did. Why? Because
      Judaism and Christianity are woven from the same rebellious cloth. Both
      religions rebelled against God and Torah and the Land of Israel. You deserve
      each other! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/828f28bd20ad15c0564c26057d3d78a3537c1f1f7436621cc1243185f2fa0b26.jpg

          Jews, Muslims & Christians (heathens in
          general) have no place in Israel – PER GOD, per Torah. You either believe this
          or you do not believe in our CREATOR.

            The Bible is the written Word of God.

            “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.”: (John 1:1-3)

            Word here meaning Jesus Christ.

            “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:” (J0hn 11:25)

            Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
            Believe & trust in Christ Jesus your Redeemer.

            John is crap
            Jesus is crap
            Your word of your god is crap

          • hbcark

            May Christ come into your heart.
            God bless

            10-39: “Christians who find their life will lose it and Christians who lose
            their life for Jesus will find it.”

            Do you doubt the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN that your god speaks of? It appears you do.

            Why not enter the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN that your god speaks of?

            Your god speaks of no suicide prohibition. Why not see if KINGDOM OF HEAVEN that your god speaks of is real?

            Let me know ASAP

            Pray for your fellow rebels, the jews and while you’re at it read this….



          • Carlton Taylor

            HEATHENS LISTEN:

            When and if you decide to convert your belief to that
            of a HEBREW, you will be welcome as a fellow believer in THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
            For this, you must obey, love and fear God and all the commandments in Torah.
            Its is the Hebrews that are the inheritors of THE LAND OF ISRAEL, no other. Its
            the Hebrew family of Israel, the common man families that are inheritors of THE
            LAND OF ISRAEL. Its the Levite Priests that are eternal inheritors of Torah.
            THE LAND OF ISRAEL was taken away from the common man Hebrews. Torah was taken
            away from the Levite Priests. How can you expect God to act? To spare mankind?
            Its not likely. The way you treat the chosen, is the way you treat God.
            Rebellion has been your treatment and God only knows that fear is remedy for
            the wayward hearts of mankind.

            Matthew 6-9. “Pray then in this way: Our Father in
            heaven, hallowed be your name. Your
            kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”

            A KINDOM awaits the Christian. Its apparently in
            heaven. But you must die to enter it. Go find it quickly. Do not doubt your
            god? And he promises that any of your will’s, will be done. What are you
            waiting for?

            Matthew 6-33. “Strive first for the kingdom of God
            and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

            Do not doubt your god? What are you waiting for?

            Whoever is not with me is
            against me and by your words you will be justified and by your words you will
            be condemned.

    This guy is relentless in his fight to standup to Obummer and his minions, drones, sheeple, the DOJ and Valerie Jarrett, the real President. Kudos to him. Keep up the good fight.

    • I Seigel

      And he’s willing to spend $400 million of his own money! You gotta admire the guy. But I hope he’s giving similar amounts to support education, or families in need, or paying his employees a livable wage with health benefits and maybe some retirement plan. It would be a shame if he’s doing all his philanthropic efforts just to stick it to “Obummer and his minions…”

    Praise God! Thank you Jesus! Amen
