Some might lose a little faith as well relative to former doctrinal understandings.

We saw the exhibit when it came to the Field Museum in Chicago. Very impressive! Visitors wandered through the exhibit in closely attentitive wonder. Amidst the wonder came the voice of a young boy who appatently expected something quite different: "Mom, where are the dead squirrels?"

A little doubt, now and then, is probably a healthy thing.


hey, gdog I believe if one really dig and gleans from them it would be a stretch to have your faith weakened because of them. These scrolls were much more than religious writings, ie legal documents, agreements between parties, and much much more. They even refer to little known facts that are only hinted in our current Old Testament, like the Book of Enos and many writings that correspond to known scripture but with minor corrections. To me it was a spiritual confirmation of what is already partially known with a few gaps filled in from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The scrolls are proof that it is all made up by humans!
