Yeah, usually I'm the one getting off-topic.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Alright lets get back to the "Offtopic".So many wars have been fought and won with the grace of "God" according to the bible.Do you think all of them are historically correct.
Lets leave the wars the jews[Israelities and Judeans] have lost for now.We will get back to that latter.

Historically correct? What is that supposed to mean? That they happened in history?

Um, yeah dude, that's kind of a well-known fact that almost all of the wars in history actually happened; why else would we even be talking about them today? Even wars that were previously thought to be pure mythology, such as the Trojan War or the Hebrew conquest of Jericho, have been backed up with archaeological evidence. Otherwise we wouldn't still be talking about them today.

But anyway, why do we still have to dig up archaeological evidences just to know whether the wars cited in the Bible did happen? Is it just because without them, the things written in the Bible won’t be claimed to be true? Is that how you want to see it? Do you think that the archaeologists could be also looking blindly on their evidences for they investigate only a small component of the whole truth?

Good point, mcar. Archaeology can't really tell us much about how people lived, and it certainly can't capture the thoughts and emotions that dominated their actions. That's the beauty of the written word, it can tell us all those little details that make up the whole picture.

Well what i meant to say was that in most wars "god" interveined and miraculously saved the israelites.which means that the isrealites could not have suffered any damage.And the exodus of isralites,plagues and stuff.Do they have evidence.I mean they seem to major happenings so should have let atleast a trace.
