What are your thoughts of History Channel's "Banned from the Bible" series during the holiday season?

History Channel aires the series, "Banned from the Bible" occasionally throughout the year. The series looks at scriptures, and verses, and questions and criticizes specific christian beliefs. The series has been on television over the past couple days, ironically during Christmas season. Some consider it innapropriate, while others insist on airing the series especially during the holiday season, to provoke thoughts on the subject. What do you think?

    I think it would very interesting any time of the year. When would be more suitable? Halloween? Easter? Thanksgiving Day? Hanukkah?
    We must remember that every that watches television does not share the same beliefs as we do and we must respect that.

  • KDragon7676 says:

    I personally think its great….but the timing of its airing is begging for trouble…. ;P

  • Bipolar Birdy says:

    I am opposed to the History Channel.

    I have 200+ other channels to watch, although 90% of them are garbage of other varieties.

    Animal Planet rules!!

  • Senior IC: UU Atheist says:

    History Channel in Canada is different than American History Channel, so I did not see it.

  • kork says:

    Your tax dollars are promoting an anti christian point of view while Christian rebuttals are censured,

  • Who are you? says:

    Christmas has nothing to do with Christ.

    I couldn’t care less when the air the show. I’ve seen it, probably twice, and I already know that there are plenty of other gospels left out of the bible because they didn’t meet the criteria the men who compiled it wanted.

  • Armored Saint says:

    I think the devils hard at work and will try and keep this on the air since its that time of year.

    oh well times are going to get worse then some show on t.v. be ready.

  • Knowledge Seeker says:

    The term "banned" is a good example of marketing (and distorting the facts a bit in order to make them more exciting.)

    It is a bit like a tabloid headline.

    I’ve sometimes assigned undergrad students the task of watching such documentaries and writing about how the facts have been manipulated for more entertainment appeal. (People get a very warped view of scholarship — but it is fun to watch.)

  • Rev. Iason Ouabache says:

    I saw about half of it last weekend. I thought that the series was very interesting. I wish more Christians would get interested in church history. They would learn that the bible isn’t something to be worshiped as the infallible word of God.

  • K-Dog says:

    I love the History Channel and think that for the most part it paints a pretty accurate portrait of our past.

  • Invictus says:

    The greatest threat to organized religion is truth and fact and they will do anything to keep you from hearing it. Isn’t it a convenient little ploy that they have going, only this silly little collection of preposterous blarney is true and every thing else is falsely planted by satan to deceive you. I’ve even seen written chronicles of how satan actually planted fossils in the earth to deceive mankind into believing false concepts. Truly these leaders of religion could likely con P.T. Barnum
    in a game of liars poker.

  • The Walkin' Dude says:

    I do not trust the History Channel and I’m starting to distrust Discovery as well. Too much woo-peddling.

    But shows depicting criticism of religious texts, whether factually correct or not, might make people think so I approve.

  • interested1208 says:

    It doesn’t attack the Bible, it only shows some of the many books that were rejected for inclusion into the Bible and some possible reasons why they weren’t. I do find it interesting though that some of the concepts from these banned books show up here being used by some to explain some Bible questions…

    Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays…

  • Tourist Penguin says:

    I bet I could refute some of it… Then I could find a site that refutes it… Then I would scoff as I went to go get some yogurt…

  • Franhusda says:

    I don’t get the History channel, but I see it occasionally at my son’s place.

    My personal opinion is that someone is being Satan’s advocate, in most programs !

    May God bless you as you study His Word

    <:)))><

  • harrison w says:

    it Great because at least they r trying considering History channel is owned by Time Warner.. but still they r editing lots of stuff or shall i say hiding lots of stuff far from the truth…..

  • frazzled girl says:

    . I have seen some of that series and I found it very interesting. I found myself thinking that there’s a lot of information that i have never had access to. And it makes me doubt the belief that the bible I was raised on is more the word of god , than of men. I just try to follow the ten commandments and chalk the rest up to here say since those are the rules god gave men.

  • Erick says:

    The History Channel is like every other channel. They have their own agenda to push. Just because it is named the "history" channel doesn’t mean it true, lol.

  • ignoramus_the_great says:

    I think that the History Channel and the National Geographic Channel are both guilty of psuedo-scholarism. Very often I sit there and see them spew out their opinions as if they were facts. Do yourself a favor and study these areas yourself. Read both the pros and cons and make your own decisions. This is just sensationalism for television dollars. Right up there with "The Tomb of Jesus" and "The Bible Code."
