Faithchasers Network 

A Christian OUTREACH Building Faith in the Word of God 


The Myth List

Listed below is an ever increasing number of myths that exist pertaining to incorrect beliefs and opinions that general society think are supported in the Hebrew and Greek scripts of the bible. 

Some of these myths are very strongly embedded into the general societal view and are as open wounds that potentially harbour infections that will, in opportune times, spread to the whole body.  And this is an important ministry that needs constant attention to push back those false beliefs and the cunningly placed pieces of mis-information that float around in agnostic and atheistic circles.  So we have set about to address this problem and to put the record straight on each of the myths by presenting what the bible does actually say and what it means in the context of our redemption back to God.

When Truth and Understanding meet, they become one as a glove does over a hand, and it is this methodology that we have endeavoured to employ through this Network to bring God's truths to the fore.  Some of the material is lengthy but this has been seen as necessary in our quest to provide both the instant answer to counter a myth but more importantly to provide the understanding behind why the myth was false in the first place.

How this Page Works

This website is a resource for identifying what the common faith-busting myths are and to provide articles and publications to gain an understanding of the truths that pertains to them.  

Often one event or pillar of faith can be challenged by multiple myths and we endeavour to cover them all.  Additionally there is a library of other articles and publications that are very useful to have as a reference source for understanding other sections of God's Word. 

Some links will target comprehensive articles that deal with many myths, and the reason for doing this is that in order to gain an understanding of any particular matter it is often necessary to build up a set of foundational structures upon which the understanding sits.
