I have read an article in yahoo news about the Shroud of Turin in this
link, where in somebody has just imitated the said “holy shroud”.

For others who do not have knowledge of the Shroud of Turin, let me give you a brief background. The Shroud of Turin is a centuries old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. A man that millions believe (Roman Catholics members) to be Jesus of Nazareth. Believers contend that the shroud is the cloth placed on the body of Jesus Christ at the time of his burial, and that the face image is the Holy face of Jesus.

In the Philippines, you can see the face image (like image shown below) inside Catholic Churches. Wherein worshiper and devotees believed to be true.

The Shroud of Turin can be seen in and kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. The big question now is: “Is it really the cloth that wrapped his crucified body, or is it simply a medieval forgery, a hoax perpetrated by some clever artist?”

If you are a Bible believer like me, you will not believe on this so called “Shroud of Turin”. Why? Because we can prove that the Shroud is fake with the use of Bible! Let me site you bible verses to prove that this shroud is fake.

In the Gospel of John, we can read a verse that goes something like this:

John 20:6 Simon Peter therefore also cometh, following him, and entered into the tomb; and he beholdeth the linen cloths lying,

John 20:7 and the napkin, that was upon his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself.

As you can see, there are linen cloths and a napkin that was used upon Jesus Christ’s head! So the shroud is not a 1 piece cloth like the Shroud of Turin. The shroud used for the covering of the body is different from the napkin or the cloth used in the head!

Another thing is, the image in the Shroud projects a man with “long hair” which is very unlikely to be the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? Because Christ commanded not to have long hair for boys or men. It is said in:

1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a dishonor to him?

1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

See, the man in the shroud has a long hair, which contradicts Christ’s teachings. If it is Jesus Christ, we should be seeing a man with a short hair in the Shroud instead.

These are only some few points based on the bible to falsify the belief that the Shroud of Turin is true.

Biblical speaking, the Shroud is fake. How about in Science?

Various tests have been performed on the shroud and one of the contentious issues is the Radiocarbon dating in 1988 which yielded results indicating that the shroud was made during the Middle Ages.

I really believe that the Shroud of Turin is fake. Biblically, and Scientifically speaking, I can say that it is FAKE.

Gayward-Concept No. 4:

It is better to believe on something that has a good and strong basis like the Bible most importantly if it is supported by scientific facts!
