A Bible Page was Found Fused to Steel From 9/11, What it Said is Truly Amazing

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by Chad, Oct 21, 2015.

  1. A firefighter made an absolutely amazing discovery back in March of 2002, and when you see what it is, it’ll leave you absolutely in awe.

    The man found a piece of steel from one of the Twin Towers that collapsed on 9/11 with a page of the Bible fused to it, and while that may not sound super fascinating, when you see what the Scripture is, it just might take your breath away.

    From The New York Times:

    “Retaliation.”

    “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

    So many chapters. So many verses. But these were the words — from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in the Gospel of Matthew — found permanently exposed at Ground Zero after the Sept. 11 attacks. The pages of the Bible in which they were printed had fused to a chunk of steel as the World Trade Center collapsed, to be found only months later.

    A firefighter found the fragment in March 2002, under the Tully Road, a temporary truck route that covered the last remnants of the south tower. He called out to the photographer, who happened to be nearby.

    “This shredded, burned and rubble-covered Bible came to me from the loving hands of a fireman who knew that I was the record keeper of ground zero,” Mr. Meyerowitz said Thursday in an e-mail from Italy, where he now lives.

    Mr. Meyerowitz went on to say, “My astonishment at seeing the page that the Bible was open to made me realize that the Bible’s message survives throughout time, and in every era we interpret its teaching freshly, as the occasion demands.”

    The Bible was also recently paid a visit by the Pope.

    This is truly an amazing story, and while I don’t think the idea of retaliation in this context is speaking of defending the country from terrorist attacks, it’s a poignant message none the less.

    It’s easy to forget, even as a Christian, that we’re all sinners in need of the saving grace of Jesus. That includes radical terrorists, murderers, adulterers, thieves, and so on.

    None of us are better than anyone else. Before the eyes of God we truly are all equal, regardless of race, ethnicity, political beliefs, and so on, because we’ve all offended a holy, righteous God with our sinfulness.

    Thankfully, God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross so those who repent and trust in Him could be saved, no matter how bad they might think they are.

    This miracle, this page of Scripture, is a reminder that while we should most definitely take action to defend ourselves from attack, we do not have to allow our hearts and minds to be held captive by hate, regardless of how badly others may hurt us.

    In our current culture, which seems to be obsessed with death, these are much needed words of hope.

  2. this could be a plant chad, but if not is it not talking about resisting the US govt?
     
  3. Assuming this story is true, this should be a huge red flag to anyone with a scientific mind.

    Paper doesn't fuse to molten steel. A quick search on the internet will tell you:

    "Steel is just the element iron that has been processed to control the amount of carbon. Iron, out of the ground, melts at around 1510 degrees C (2750°F). Steel often melts at around 1370 degrees C(2500°F)."​

    There is a well known book called Fahrenheit 451. The name of the book has a meaning, it is the temperature at which paper will ignite and burn on its own. Paper anywhere near the vicinity of molten steel will ignite and burn up quickly, just from the radiant heat of the molten steel alone. If say a book were to come into direct contact with molten steel, it would turn to ash in moments. I've burnt a few books before, and I know what happens when a book comes into contact with direct heat, and it looks nothing like the above picture at all.

    If you look at the bible above, it doesn't even have visible char on it, not even around the small slab of steel that is actually on top of the left side of the bible page that it is open to. That is completely nonsensical. The first reason it is nonsensical, is because there is no reason for there to be pools of molten steel present at the scene of the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. The second is because there would be no reason for that to have happened in a constant vacuum, depriving the paper of any amount of oxygen which it requires to combust.

    There are a number of reports of similar odd things that go along with observations from 9/11/2001 and afterword. In fact many of them include what looks like molten steel with sheets of paper right next to it not burning up. What we are looking at above, assuming it is not a hoax, is not a case of molten steel fusing to a bible, not in the traditional sense anyway. That steel was not 2500°F when that bible was fusing to it (once again assuming this story is legit). Something else is going on here.

    I don't think the takeaway here is that God miraculously preserved this bible, defying the laws of nature. I think the takeaway here is that whatever happened that day on 9/11 was not what we think it was. Something strange and altogether different was going on, and it would be good for us to search the matter out and find out exactly what that was.

    Blessings,

  4. this analysis i like and i commend you bro! i especially like that whatever happened that day on 9/11 was not what we think it was. but on this next point we should not pursue it, unless it a hobby - Something strange and altogether different was going on, and it would be good for us to search the matter out and find out exactly what that was.

  7. God can do anything He wishes to bring His truth to the world. He operates by the supernatural---which means "above natural laws", so any amount of scientific explanation or refutation cannot stand.
     
  8. absolutely! God is beautiful and amazing and can be anything anytime anyhow!!
     
  9. well said rob hahahaha
