‘Fulfilled’: Apostle Paul’s predicted time of fables is today

By WND Staff

Some 2,000 years ago, the apostle Paul predicted a time when believers in God would “not endure sound doctrine” and that “they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

“At this very moment, we are living in Paul’s predicted time of fables,” declares WND executive news editor Joe Kovacs, author of the brand-new book, “Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You’ve Never Been Told,” which makes its official debut today.

“There are millions of people, many of whom are Christian, who actually believe fables about Scripture instead of easily provable Bible facts,” Kovacs said.

To help people come out of the Babylon of confusion, Kovacs goes on an educational juggernaut with “Shocked by the Bible,” an astounding probe into what the Holy Bible actually contains, as well as what it doesn’t. It’s a massive news report exposing common misconceptions and answering questions that have endured for centuries.

Did you know …

  • The Bible doesn’t say Jesus died on a Friday or rose at sunrise Sunday morning
  • No wise men at all visited baby Jesus in a Bethlehem manger. (They actually met Jesus for the first time in a house when he was a young child, not a babe in a manger)
  • The practice of decorating a tree with silver and gold is actually condemned by God
  • God never said “Let Me make man in My image”
  • “Easter” has vanished from the Bible, yet many Christians still revere the name of that ancient fertility goddess as something holy
  • God sought to kill Moses
  • Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jews
  • There were not just two of each animal aboard Noah’s Ark
  • The Bible doesn’t say Noah’s Ark landed on “Mount Ararat”
  • “God the Father” is never mentioned in the Old Testament
  • Jesus did not come to make everyone understand His message

“I think it’s time people wake up and find out what they’ve been missing,” says Kovacs, a self-described Bible fan. “My goal is to educate people about the solid truth of Scripture and to stop the spread of erroneous information. I want people to crack open their Bibles and see with their own eyes what’s actually printed on the pages, and what’s not. They can come to their own conclusions.”

Even before its release from publisher Thomas Nelson, hundreds of copies of “Shocked by the Bible” have been flying off the shelves, rocketing to the No. 1 position on WND’s Best-Seller List, as well as No. 1 in three categories on Amazon.com: Bible and Other Sacred Texts; Commentaries and Concordances.

Some readers are already sounding off.

“Your book has changed my life almost as much as the Bible has!” exclaims Donna Hoagland of Muncy, Pa., who calls herself “A Servant of Christ.” “I sat down and read the first 75 pages without a thought about getting up and doing anything else. It was so intriguing.”

Henry Mullis of Rockwell, N.C. says: “Thanks for another great book, I pray that it will get people interested in the Scriptures once again. Believe it or not there are some of us out here who actually know the Bible and teach it in church. Maybe I should write a book on all the things people say that are in the Bible which are not. … It saddens me to know that most of God’s people don’t know His Word. I laughed when I read the promo which stated that Abraham, etc. were not Jewish. It’s technically true, but boy, will the Jewish community howl.”

Some well-known figures are raving as well:

“If you think you really know the Bible, better think again. Joe
Kovacs takes a close look at the greatest story ever told and separates
myth from reality. My favorite parts of the book deal with Christmas
and Easter. Check out ‘Shocked by the Bible.’ You may well be shocked.”
Bill O’Reilly, anchor, Fox News Channel

“Your parents never told you THIS STUFF was in the Bible.”
  – Melanie Morgan, radio talk-show host, co-author “American Mourning”

“‘Shocked by the Bible’ is nothing short of genius. From start to
finish, Joe Kovacs turns the subject of Scripture into a fun-filled,
information treasure that’s virtually impossible to put down. The truth
of what’s really in the Bible will simply stun the world.”
Joseph Farah, editor of WorldNetDaily

The book even delves into “lighter” facts that just never seem to be brought up in church.

  • God ran lotteries
  • Nagging wives are mentioned in Scripture
  • Women’s breasts are celebrated in the Bible
