Former Things The Bible and Archaeology
 
Welcome to FormerThings.com
We examine and document the archaeological and prophetic accuracy of the Bible. The Word of God clearly states there is a place called hell for non-believers so we are committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The objective of our web site is to assist Christians by providing evidence for their faith and to reveal truths to those who are not saved. "Always be prepared to answer everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have" - 1st Peter
