SYNOPSIS: A Young man from Israel (Paiges) makes the journey of a lifetime to deliver the biblical truth. His research leads him to a small-town minister, Teacher Matthew, who reluctantly closed his house of worship when he could no longer defend the Bible's inerrancy. This decision shocked the congregation of The Mission of Hope and Faith, the house of worship Teacher so loved.
Coincidentally or not, Paiges has a heartfelt effect on the small community, and it couldn't have come at a better time with Christmas just around the corner. Of course, contesting the biblical stories will challenge Teacher's congregation when he reopens the Mission of Hope and Faith. Not only will Teacher shock his congregation with his new biblical agenda, but the Christian community, as well. But with Paiges' help, Teacher and Tabatha Matthew, Teacher's wife, will set out to prove a conspiracy existed against Moses to libel our Creator in The Old Testament. But does the conspiracy really exist in the Bible? IT ABSOLUTELY DOES!
There are several social issues addressed in Missing Pages, each having a profound message and positive outcome. One such story involves racism when one parent doesn't approve of his teen son's relationship with a neighbor. Another story involves a father disowning his daughter because of her sexual preference. Another story involves a family dealing with Alzheimer's disease at a time when their farm is threatened with eminent domain. Last, but not least, another story centers around atheism, but an atheist in this storyline takes the protagonist lead, and deservingly so.
I am not a Biblical Scholar. But I am someone who emphatically believes in God, though one who also knows the Bible is not inerrant. The Bible not being inerrant is a fact and not an opinion. I never believed in God's wrathful portrayal. Many Christians criticize me for this without giving this next thought: Will God really be upset with me because I choose to believe He was and still is ALL LOVING all the time? If you believe this is true, then you do not know God. If my question intrigues you, then you're on the right path to finding the truth.
Indeed, I am a unique Christian, but a Christian nevertheless. My unique Christianity is my belief that God's wrathful portrayal in the Bible is a lie to libel our Creator. All Christians believe God is omnipotent; that's a fact. Knowing God is all powerful, then Christians also know God could have made mankind disappear with a blink of His eye instead of flooding the earth. Drowning is an unimaginable death, a fight to tread water while gasping for your last breath of air. Done intentionally, it's a cruel execution, and to innocent children no less. THIS IS NOT GOD!
FREE-WILL is something Christians emphatically believe. The fact is, no FREE-WILL existed in The Old Testament. If it did exist, God wouldn't have punished the wicked with a flood, or Sodom and Gomorrah because of gay behavior. He wouldn't have led an attack against Egypt that killed thousands. FREE-WILL did exist in The New Testament. If God ever had a reason to kill man, it would have been for the inhumane treatment of His Son. But that never happened. GOD CAN DO ANYTHING yet Christians believe He would choose violent actions instead of FREE-WILL that would decide the fate of man in the afterlife. HEAVEN is perfection. If Earth was God's intention for perfection, then there would be no need for Heaven. No need for salvation.
There are a few obvious stories in The Old Testament that contradicts God being Omniscient, something Christians emphatically believe. One is God asking Abraham to sacrifice his son to prove his loyalty to HIM. An Omniscient God would already know this about Abraham. But the below story in the Exodus is more important because it clearly identifies God's ignorance, and it's something Christian scholars intentionally avoid because it questions the veracity of the biblical text. This is one reason I'm contesting God's wrathful portrayal in The Old Testament.
In Exodus 4:24-26, God was set on killing Moses for no apparent reason and with absolutely no hint from the previous verses in Exodus 4. Ahh, but Christians argue that God was going to kill Moses because his son wasn't circumcised, hence Zipporah casting her son's foreskin at her husband's feet. It is unbelievable that Christian Scholars avoid this implication because protecting the Bible's integrity is more important than point out a huge flaw. With Christians emphatically believing God is Omniscient, then how did God not know Moses' son wasn't circumcised before choosing Moses to lead the Israelites out of bondage? The belief in God's wrathful portrayal will end after people read "Missing Pages." God's messenger is among us NOW and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!
While I present Missing Pages in the fiction genre, don't dismiss that my biblical depiction in the novel is anything else but the truth. The characters are lifelike and intriguing. The real protagonist in Missing Pages is Chloe Cain, an atheist brought up in a Christian environment..
GOD IS GREATER THAN THE BIBLE STATES! Why do I say this? Because God never harmed, let alone killed His Creation!
Jeremiah 8:8 --- "How can you say we are wise and the law of the Lord is with us? Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood." This IS absolutely a conspiracy!
Jeremiah 11:9-10 --- And the Lord said to me, “A conspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers who refused to hear My words, and they have gone after other gods to serve them; the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken My covenant which I made with their fathers.”
A CONSPIRACY CLEARLY APPEARS IN JEREMIAH 11:9-10. THIS IS UNDENIABLE!
Jesus Himself confirms this theory in Matthew 23: 1-4 --- "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat, so observe what they tell you to observe. But do not do according to their works, because they say and do not do. For they bind heavy burdens that are hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not move them."
SCRIBES DID SIT IN MOSES' SEAT BECAUSE THEY ALTERED HIS WORK! This is a conspiracy for sure and it came from Jesus Himself!
John 8:32 --- "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Jesus came to prove His Father's existence and warn the people that they did not know the truth. Jesus proved His Father's existence with His Resurrection. AND there are NO wrathful stories of God in the New Testament. ZERO! Christians will disagree because of Acts 5 and the story of Ananias and Sapphira.
