answers to biblical questions

Would you like some answers to biblical questions that you may have? Anything stuck in your craw concerning Jesus the Messiah, Father God, The Holy Spirit, Salvation, Old Testament, New Testament, Heaven, Hell, or anything else that’s in there?

This is in no way to imply that I know everything, cause that would be nuts! That said, one thing I love to do is take a question someone may have and search the scriptures to find out the answers. It sharpens me, and helps someone out at the same time. The topic doesn’t really matter… It’s all in there! And if I am able to help you out with an answer, Take it to the Lord in prayer. Don’t just take my word for it!

Click on the red box with a number in it located just above this article to check out some other questions that have been asked. Also. you can leave your own question in the comments section & bookmark this site so you can come back and get your answer. Another alternative is send me an E-mail. I would rather keep it in the comments to benefit others that may come here and have a similar question, but e-mail is fine if you’d rather keep it off the site.

Thanks and I’ll look forward to catching up on some digging time!

  1. Hi BReynolds,

    Thanks for this post inviting people to ask questions about faith. It is always good to encourage folks to think about their faith and not just take in whatever is taught to them. I agree with you that the answers we seek are found in the Bible. I think where it gets muddled up is in the interpretation. Do you agree?

    • Hi Rodney,

      Yes I do agree. There’s a big difference between head knowledge into the Bible and Spirit lead knowledge into the Bible. Head knowledge tends to mix up the Word with the things of the flesh, but when we are lead by the Holy Ghost, who leads us into all truth, the knowledge acquired is coupled with understanding and insight from the Author himself.

      That’s why I believe so many people take all kinds of scriptures out of context. I recommend it all over the place on this site… Before you open your Bible, pray to the Father to open your eyes to the treasures hidden in his Word, and to be lead you into all truth concerning every verse that your eyes fall upon. Pray to be rightfully instructed and when you run into something that you may not be too sure about, simply ask the Lord to help you understand. Our Father will not upbraid us for coming to him with any questions that may arise concerning his Word. Doing this before beginning to read the Word, in my experience, it makes a huge difference in what you take from your reading session.

      But it is a huge problem, people taking the Word and either twisting it to conform to their beliefs (instead of conforming their beliefs to line up with the Bible), or take hold of whatever they’re spoon fed from someone without searching anything to see if what they’ve been taught is even Biblical at all. I could go on forever with all of the different ways these things go on.

      Thank you for your comment and question Rodney! God bless you in Jesus name.

  2. I learned a lot just from the questions that were asked and you provided some great answers. I seen that God created Christ to walk the Earth as a man. But did God have power over his actions. It is a bit confusing. But they say the Lord works in mysterious ways. I am a Christian myself, but I need to learn a lot more. I am going to bookmark this website, you really know what your talking about.

    • Hi Brandon,

      Thank you for those kind words! They really are encouraging! Just ask away if you need help with anything and I’ll do my best!

      Concerning your question, let me clear that up for you. Jesus was God come in the flesh. There, all better? lol. That is tough to wrap your mind around. But even though they are one, they are still three parts of one whole Being which is God. Jesus wasn’t controlled by God the Father, but was in constant communication with him.

      John 5:19-21

      19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

      20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

      John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

      The Father would show Jesus what to do, and Jesus would do it. The Father would tell Jesus what to say, and Jesus would say it. That’s the best way I can think to describe it. The only edge that he was given that no other man ever had in the same way, was the Holy Ghost. Before Jesus was baptized and the Holy Spirit descended down upon him, man did not have that kind of indwelling of the Holy Ghost. He would be WITH certain people like the prophets and judges or more ancient times, but didn’t dwell INSIDE anyone until Jesus. BUT because of what Jesus accomplished, we have an opportunity to have that same indwelling of the Holy Spirit that he enjoyed, bringing us that much closer to the Father. I did a page in the Bible Study section that would clear that up a bit better than I am doing right now. It’s called Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and YOU

      Thank you for your comment and God bless you always in Christ Jesus!

  3. Are you familiar with Eastern Orthodox Christianity? I think they have an interesting Trinitarian interpretation of the Trinity. I think this split in interpretation led to the schism between Orthodox and Catholics. Could you just give a brief overview of the schism and why it happened?

    Also, how do you define Heaven and Hell?

    • Hi there Ian,

      I was answering your questions and suddenly I realized that my answer no longer made sense to stay in the comment section, but was better placed in the Bible Q&A page. Please click the link for your answers to your questions. But I will say, I’m clueless about the difference between the two Orthodox vs Catholic views about the trinity. But I do get into it allot more on the Q&A page, just scroll down toward the bottom to see them. Heaven and Hell is answered there too that was actually right in my ballpark. No problems there. lol. . I hope you go and give it an eyeball!

      Thank you for your questions and God bless you!

  4. I think that we will always have different debates about the same things as discussed until we have to come to the terms that the bible does not use the word as a trinity? That is just a Catholic Religious concept, yes it helps to understand that there are three mentioned in the bible as Father, the word, and the Spirit, these three are one. And three that bear witness as one, Spirit, water and blood, these three agree as one. (never does it say! that there are three persons in one God)
    That is a trinity? the bible clearly saying a Triune God, not a trinity God. The bible does not say one became three/ it clearly say the three are ONE.(not become three) 1 John 5:7
    When we understand that there is no confusion,(I and the Father are one.) ( i come in my Fathers name! and the works of the Father this I do) http://revbrianrichards.com

    • Hi there Rev Brian,
      To me, I believe that those kinds of arguments are splitting hairs. I do have an understanding (I believe) about the relationship between the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, In fact, check out the revelation that the Lord gave me concerning our place inside the three/one Father, Son, Holy Spirit, & You! Check it out when you get the chance. They are three doing three different things, yet they are one. Personally, I believe that’s what the scripture means when it says that we are created in His image. Not necessarily through physical aspects (2 eyes, 1 nose, 2 feet, etc.), But our entire Make-up. God said Let US create man in OUR image. We are spirit, clothed in a soul, and housed in a body. I think that’s what that all meant. We are all three yet we’re each one person. Made in his/their image. I hope I’m making sense. 🙂
      Thank you for your great comment! God bless you!

  5. Hi there,
    There’s a few questions that have always confused me with Christianity,
    If Jesus was god then how could he die?
    If he’s part of a trinity then wouldn’t there be two thirds of god left?
    Also why did he pray, and who was he praying to if he was god?
    Did Jesus ever claim to be god himself?
    Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

    • Hi Adam, Great bunch of questions! I’ll do my best and answer them in order.

      If Jesus was God, how could he die? Jesus was born into this world, to live life as a man. He came for several reasons, but the biggest reason he even came in the first place was to be a perfect sacrificial lamb, to die on our behalf. He could die because he was a man, through and through. Cut him and he bled. However, because he is God, he rose again on the third day after his death, and was seated on the right hand of the Father. Right now as you read this, there is a man sitting beside the Father, on the throne in Heaven. And he’s there representing all of those who have accepted him and have received him.

      If he’s part of a trinity then wouldn’t there be two thirds of god left? He is the Son of God, and yet God himself. That is a confusing statement, but the trinity is God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. I guess my question to you would be “left” where? Think about it for a second. God can be anywhere and everywhere.

      I believe that the Bible gives you the flavor that Jesus knew exactly who he was since a child. That said, he was reconnected to the Father once baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan, then the Holy Ghost descended down upon Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the connection made between God and Jesus in the Bible. It’s after that event that he went into the wilderness to be tempted, then kicked off his ministry.

      I guess the quick answer would be no. All three are together all the time, and they were while Jesus walked the earth. I’d bet that the longest they’ve ever been apart is three days.

      Also why did he pray, and who was he praying to if he was god? Like I said, the whole point for Christ’s coming was to live as a spirit filled man. Hence why he was called and also called himself Son of man. He is God’s Son, so he prayed to the Father. Jesus would only say the things that the Father would say, and would only do what the Father told him to do. Jesus himself stripped himself of all “Godlike” power in order to experience life as a man. So only through the Holy Ghost that dwelt inside him could make whatever happened happen. That was the whole point. If there was any advantage, it was more knowledge based.

      In other words, he knew how to listen to the Holy Spirit, he knew the nature of man better than man did (after all, he created man), etc.. So Christ praying (in my opinion) was just simply Jesus keeping in constant contact with the Father.

      Did Jesus ever claim to be god himself? Muslims love to harp on this because Jesus didn’t run out and say, “Look everyone, I’m God!” lol. He indeed made sure we knew that he was and I’ll answer your question as a resounding YES! But first I’ll make sure to point out that he did say that he did not come to testify of himself. When he spoke, he spoke in behalf of the Father, and testified of the Father. But he was pressed a few times and he gave some incredible answers. My favorite concerning this is the following:

      Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

      In case you don’t know, that is what God called himself to Moses when Moses asked who shall I say you are? (Paraphrasing) And God said in Exodus:

      Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

      The Jews back in the day knew exactly what Jesus was saying, hence the reason that they tried to stone him after saying that. If that isn’t clearly Jesus telling them who he is, than I don’t know what is!

      I hope these answered your questions. If not, please let me know and I’ll expand on them as these are off the top of my head. Thank you and God Bless!

  6. Your website and your article certainly will or can give answers to those who are burning to know the answers.

    I personally had and have thoughts on my own. I never really liked the dooms day approach of some religious groups.

    I believe in God, Jesus, the Angels, but I am also a Free Spirit and don’t just swallow what gets thrown at me.

    I like that you are looking for answers guided by your heart and helping people to understand supernatural things much better.

    Wishing you always the best.

    God bless

    Sylvia

    • Hi there Sylvia,

      Thank you for the comment! Never swallow anything that gets thrown at you, but dive into God’s Word. That’s where you’ll get the correct answers for the tough questions. If you look around on the site, you’ll see that in just about every post or page, that I promote BIG TIME to get into the Word of God, and not to take my word on anything.

      Also, I just want to take this opportunity to express something because of the way you phrased what your beliefs are. Allot of people believe in God, Jesus, Angels, demons, etc. But that’s not going to get anyone very far, certainly not to heaven. Anyone can believe anything, but where does your faith rest vs. what God has to say about things? The Lord established a way for us to be literally connected with Him, and any other way is false. There’s only one way to God the Father, and that’s through Christ Jesus.

      Anyone interested in what I’m scratching the surface at can read more about it HERE

      Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

  7. Thanks for this post. I am so grateful that you have created a site about christianity. I think it’s really good that you are trying to help people answer those difficult questions as much as you can. The Lord definitely would be proud of you. There are just so many questions that many people have that need to be answered with biblical scriptures. I believe the bible tells us what we need to know. Keep up with the good work!

    • Hi there Teresa, thank you for your kind words. You’re right, people have hard questions, but for any hard question, there is an answer. The problem is, most Christians are ill equipped to wrestle with the hard biblical questions because we’ve been watered down with all kinds of different versions of the Bible that seems to wash the power out of the Word with each and every “new and Improved” version.

      A quick search into the backgrounds of some of these people involved with that happening will tell the tale. It’s no accident. There are particulars in the 1611, or KJV that have been removed by several of the different translations that deal specifically with the supernatural truth of the Bible.

      That being coupled with people not wanting to stop looking at the world through stained glass windows to even know that these questions are even out there. Like Solomon said in Proverbs 26:

      13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.

      Slothful = Lazy

      In other words, too apathetic to go out and do anything about it. Oddly enough, there’s another reference in the Bible about a lion.

      1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

      Quick interpretation of these two… Don’t be too lazy to deal with the lion. Satan is more than happy to oblige anyone with questions concerning things of a supernatural nature. He’ll help you out and come up with anything at all that will persuade you away from the truth of God’s written Word & Jesus his Son. Especially when he uses a topic that is difficult to answer to through the Bible. Difficult but not impossible.

      Anything at all is available from Satan, except one thing, salvation from what’s coming. What’s coming is death. And if you have not made yourself right with God, God’s way, which is through Christ Jesus, becoming born again, then Satan’s done his charade well, and he’s robbed one more creation of God from going to where God wanted them to go. And instead of heaven, you go to hell. Pretty straight forward.

      If anyone reading this doesn’t know for sure where they are going when they die, just get saved, Jesus did everything, all you need to do is believe it and receive Jesus into your heart. He’s given you free will, he’s not going to force you to do anything, or do that part for you. He made it so easy to not burn for all eternity. Check out the Salvation page to read more about it.

      Wow, praise God. Thank you for the comment that extracted all this out of me. lol.

      God bless you Teresa,

      Brian

  8. Biblical questions is truley a look into the supernatural because I don’t beleive that some of the event could happen without supernatural powers.

    So with that said what is at hand for psychics who use their abilities? Some have told me that they will be damned, but I have also read that God tells us that one can do work in his name as he did. How can someone be damned for being born in his likeness and with a gift of that sort.

    Very confusing to me.

    • Hi Debra, thank you for the comment & great question by the way.

      Many people with abilities outside of our normal senses are all thrown under one umbrella called “psychics”.

      The real question needs to be have they received Christ in their life and become born again? Because without being born again into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son, it doesn’t matter if you are psychic or not.

      Looking into the subject you may find that many of the psychics out there are into a new age kinda thing, that leads away from Christ period, despite all of the loving kindness and close resemblances to biblical Christianity, it still finds a way to focus on one’s self instead of Christ. Because this is such a close cut to Holy Spirit lead spirituality, many are deceived, in the public as well as the pew and in the pulpit. I’ve heard of many churches falling into that and falling away from the truth of scripture. The best counterfeit is one that matches the real thing without being discerned by an educated eye. Just think of counterfeit cash as an example. Our expert in this case is the discernment of the Holy Spirit, which itself is a spiritual gift. This is nothing new, as it has been going on for thousands of years. Satan is the author of deception. He’s better at it than we can imagine, and is really good at covering his tracks. There’s a book I would recommend which is called: The Beautiful Side of Evil. That will help just about anyone.

      All that said, I’m sure there are many psychics that are not into anything new age or otherwise occult type worship or activity. Also I understand that it’s something most often not asked for, and may have been around since birth. This would be a generational thing (if it is a demonic situation), where someone a few generations back may have been into something that leads to generational bondage of some sort. This doesn’t mean that these are evil people or anything, but someone somewhere kicked a spiritual football that hasn’t landed yet, and it takes severing spiritual ties in order to cancel out demonic oppression from these generational curses. But I digress…

      In anything either psychic or not, if it serves man, themselves, or leads away from Jesus as the risen Lord, then it’s not of God & that person may need deliverance. Any spiritual gift from above points right back to the Father. The best way anybody concerned with anything like this needs to get to know the Word of God. Whatever runs crosswise with God’s Word, is running crosswise with God.

      Hebrews 4:12

      For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

  9. Hi Brian. I have kinda of a somber question for you. But it was one that was haunting me when I was a fresh new christian and I was wondering what you were thinking about it personally.

    The question is: “What do you is the blasphemy against thev Holy Spirit or that sin that cannot be forgiven?”

    Thanks in advance for your answer and pray that God bless you with that site on Him.

    • Hey there Guy! That’s a huge question…. Actually I may dig real deep into it and create a post out of it. But Jesus actually lays it out for us:

      Mark 3:28-30

      28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

      30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

      Just before these verses the opponents of Christ were accusing him of casting demons out by himself having a demon. Which is calling the Holy Spirit a demon. Because of this I am weary of calling anyone a false prophet (unless it’s obviously an anti-Christ doctrine). Tons of people are doing that these days and it’s not healthy. A religious spirit often tries to cause the people of God to do just that, and it’s often directed at a Spirit filled person that they simply disagree with.

      I hope this helps & thank you for your comment!

  10. Great site , the questions that religon through up have and will be debated for centurys.
    I am a back slidin christian myself and a site like this serves to help reaffirm my faith.
    I for one will be bookmarking it and visiting again.
    Thank you for such well written intresting content and keep up the good work.

    • Hey thank you DANNY,

      All have come short, we’re all sinners. That’s why Jesus came and did what he did, so by HIS works and God’s plan of mercy, we can repent and pick up right where we fell away from. A great backslide prevention program is found in the Bible between Contents and Maps. lol. Stay in the Word and eat some soul food! A well fed spirit is less likely to backslide!

      Thank you for your comment and God bless you!

      PS, I was just going through some of these comments and thought I’d add to this one. Another great way to prevent sin in your life is to begin living a Godly life. Find out what he wants you to do and then do it. Knowing that you’ll be taking a stand and that others see it, you’ll be more likely to resist temptation when it comes, particularly if you are aware that God is with you and watching, and others around you are watching.

  11. There are so many things in this world that can not be explained. I believe that the bible only has what we need to know. But there are so many questions that I have too.
    Q1: Why do some people encounter or see ghosts? I thought when a person dies, they either go up to heaven or hell. Where do spirits hanging around fit in?

    Q2: How old is the earth? Thousands of years? or millions/billions of years?

    Q3 What about aliens? Do you believe they exist?

    Q4: How about dinosaurs? The bible doesn’t mention about them. We still found remains of these prehistoric animals though.

    • Hi there Teresa,

      There are allot of things that I believe God has kept out of His Word for one reason. It’s none of our business! LoL. He has a plan for our lives and a plan for the earth’s welfare while we’re on it. It’s all going to burn in the very end (this earth), but there will be a New Heaven and New earth in those days. It’s all in the back of the book. The earth is the Lords’s and the fullness thereof. Let’s go through your questions!

      A1: As I was answering this, I found it better to turn it into a page instead of a response. I often do this if I find that the answer needs a foundation instead of a couple of sentences. It became lengthy in other words. The short answer is:

      People encounter or see ghosts, because the best trick the Satan has pulled on the planet is to convince it that he doesn’t exist! Demons which are under Satan’s command rarely ever show themselves to be demons, but show themselves as departed loved ones, spirit guides, other gods, even masquerading as Jesus, prophets, and his angels, etc.. Or as in many cultures you’ll find that demons often appear to people as cute creatures or something like that.

      The point behind this tactic is to lead God’s creation away from it’s Creator. There’s a war going on that has spanned for many thousands of years. The things that go on spiritually are often times tactical. And the deception is so flawless to those who are spiritually dead, or who haven’t received Christ into their hearts! Satan is by far more genius than any man that has ever existed with one exception, Jesus. Without the benefit of being lead into all truth through the Holy Spirit, Satan’s plan is so in depth, confusing, and seemingly successful that the most intelligent of mankind easily fall into place, to not only believe what he wants them to, but to also propagate all the lies and deceptions even if they conflict.

      The good news is, Satan has absolutely nothing on Jesus as there is no competition. He is nowhere equal to Jesus as movies and other propaganda would lead one to believe. With one word from Jesus’s mouth Satan’s knee will bow & there’s nothing he can do about it. Again, it’s in the back of the book.

      Ghosts causes everyone to ask what you did. If ghosts are here than maybe there’s no heaven or hell, or if there is, why are they here? Causing people to question their beliefs is as old as humanity I’m reminded of this:

      Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

      Keep your eyes open for an up and coming page dedicated to this question! On to Answer 2

      A2: I stick with the Biblical Account of all that we know of, is anywhere from 6 to 10 thousand years old, and what we have little to no clue about is an undetermined number older. This introduces the gap theory which I lean towards for several reasons, but there are very good people out there that think it’s bunk. Not a huge deal as it, in the end has no impact on one’s salvation.

      I’ve heard it said that if this entire planet was made out of radio carbon 13, it would all be gone in one million years. Here’s a very informative video that’s worth the watch Theory of Everything by Trey Smith. Assuming that’s true, how dependable is RC 13? Anyways on to the next!

      Q3: Aliens is a very complex answer that ties somewhat into my answer about ghosts, but has a different twist to it. This is regarding Genesis chapter six, when some angels come down and turn on God, and go into marriage with human woman, creating giants and many other abominations upon the earth. One of the main contributes toward the reasoning behind the flood. That’s who I believe the aliens are, those that left their first estate and turned against God. check out Steve Quayle, Tom Horn, L.A. Marzulli concerning this. It’s an eye opening study tht answers many big questions concerning aliens and the alien agenda.

      Q4: I did do a post concerning this about Dinosaurs. Check it out!

      Thank you for all your questions! I really enjoy going over them!

      God bless you.

  12. Love your article on answers to biblical questions.This is another way of propagating the gospel, the bible is the great book of life that everyone needs to use as a standard for our lives.This forum created will be of great help in building our faith in the bible.Have a question,is the old testament still relevant? Am asking this question because the church of christ says it is no more relevant, want to be cleared on this. Thanks,God bless you, all the best.

    • Hi Richard, great and relevant question! I personally believe that the OT laws were specifically designed for the Jews, but to only be fulfilled by one man. Jesus. Once he fulfilled them, there began a new covenant. That doesn’t mean that they are to be ignored by virtue of our Salvation. It is crucial that we get just as well versed in the Old Testament as we do the New. Reason being, half of what goes on and is being talked about in the New is layed out in the Old. For example, most of the book of Revelation is Jewish! First four or five chapters are geared toward Christ’s Church, but shortly after, many of the questions people have in Revelation are layed out and answered in the Old Testament.

      But strictly concerning the laws found in the OT, I just quoted this in a previous post. Matthew 22:

      37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

      So I guess the quick answer to your question is YES! The Old Testament is absolutely still relevant. All scripture is profitable and worthy of study. 2 Timothy 3:16

      All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

      I hope this cleared the air a bit. Thanks for your comment!

      Brian

  13. Hey,

    This is a fun post and it’s a great way to get people involved. I probably could ask hundreds of questions but I’ll only ask one. lol.

    I always wondered what the bible says about dinosaurs. I mean, we all know dinosaurs roamed the earth 75 million years ago which is way longer ago then all the bible stories go back.

    Since the earth was ruled by them for millions of years I would assume that this topic would come up in the bible at some point I just wonder what it says about them or about the times they roamed.

    Thanks a lot.

    Robert

    • Hi Robert,

      As I was answering your question, I found myself putting together a lot of material. So I’ve decided to answer your question by way of a new post that should be ready pretty soon. Make sure to come back and check it out!

      Thanks for the comment!

  14. Brian,

    I love the concept of your site. This page is very clean and easy to read, easy to navigate. I would call it a straight forward simple blog page. I think you have a good balance of text and graphics which make it attractive and professional looking. I’m a United Methodist Pastor so I know my way around a bible and I like the way you answer your questions and I think your theology is reasonably sound. Good job, I pray you will touch a lot of lives through this ministry.

    • Thank you very much for your comment and kind remarks! I’ve been trying to keep the site as simple looking as possible without appearing as just a bunch of text. Pictures aren’t always easy with many of these topics. lol

      Thanks again and God bless you!

  15. I would like your thoughts on something.

    My daughter came to me one day and said that someone told her that Jesus sinned, because he “doubted” God while he was on the cross. The scripture they used was from Matthew 27:46. from the King James Version that says My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

    I knew of the scripture, but I wasn’t quite sure how to answer her on it. I found Tony Alamo Christian Ministries homepage where it said that according to expert Aramaic Translators, Jesus never said that. Mr. Alamo said the following.

    The four first Gospels were written in Aramaic, not Greek. Jesus and His disciples spoke Aramaic and Hebrew, not Greek. Here are the true Words Christ spoke on the cross. Jesus really cried out, My God, My God for this I was kept.

    Tony Alamo is saying that the words were translated according to the Greek language, not Aramaic and Hebrew. I have heard that there were many mistakes in the King James version. Could this be the reason why?

    Where would I get a bible that has translations according to Aramaic and Hebrew?

    Thanks for any help you can give me. Sorry for this being so long.

    • Hi Melinda, Great question, and the answer is much less complicated. Jesus wasn’t doubting God at all. In all his life here on earth, that was the first time ever he was without the presence of his Father. But also, check out Psalms 22!!! This will excite you! Jesus was quoting from a Psalm that David wrote hundreds of years earlier!

      He was pointing to that specific Psalm to give us more insight into what he was suffering on the cross, describing the physical torments and also the spiritual. I would advise to read Christ suffering on the cross at the end of Matthew, then jump to Psalms 22, then jump to Hebrews chapter 1. Try it.

      By doing this you’ll get the scene at the cross, what is going on physically & spiritually to Jesus, and what happened after his resurrection.

      Concerning translations, as far as I know, Greek was the language used at the time much like English is used today. In this I am no expert at all. lol. However, the KJV is the trusted version, and as it has a few things that could have been translated better, it isn’t deliberately missing things or milking things down like the NIV and other translations.

      I hope you have fun on your journey through those scriptures & thank you for your comment!

  16. This is a great idea for a post, I like it. My question is – did Noah really build his ark?
    I know that this has been asked many times before but I would really like to know is has there been any kind of scientific input into the debate. You know, stuff like was there a significant investigation into questions like was there significant rainfall during the approximate period, or is there any evidence of the ark itself?

    • Hi Terry, Yes I honestly believe that he did! Here’s some helpful links that should point you to the answers to your questions.

      Physical evidence of the Ark found

      As far as evidence of the actual flood, check out this site: Center for Scientific Creation I have read the book that Walt Brown had published several years ago. He goes extraordinarily deep into the topic. His site has some great info on the Hydro-plate theory. Keep in mind that the mainstream science types out there are trying hard to back their religion of evolution (which in my view requires more faith to believe in than to believe in Jesus), so any real evidence that proves to the contrary is often scrubbed.

      I hope these links help with your questions. Thank you!

  17. Hey there, stumbled upon your site and I actually did want to ask you a question. I’ve been Roman Catholic all my life and have always had questions. We are taught not to question our faith, but come on.. did certain events truly happen 1000’s of years ago? Do you really think Moses parted the Red Sea? So many “un answered” questions I could ask. Very interesting stuff.

    • Hi John,

      Great bunch of questions! If you check out one of my previous posts Call it Supernatural Truth – On the Long Road to Heaven, I go through the difference between man made religion & what God has been actually saying to us. Please do check it out, cause it isn’t uncommon for different religions or denominations to forbid looking into why they want you to do things and where the practices really came from, etc..

      As far as believing things of an unbelievable nature:

      I’m reminded of Gideon against the Midianites in Judges chapter seven. I’d recommend you read it for yourself, but to make short of it, Gideon was on his way to battle with a large number of soldiers. God throughout the way had Gideon send people back to their homes cause their number was too great, till they were weaned down to 300 men to go up against a much larger army of thousands. God was creating a situation that only He could successfully grant them victory.

      He does things in a manner that it’s impossible for us to take credit for. So when something impossible happens, God’s at work. Jesus said in Matthew:

      Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. So that’s a long way to answer your question about do I really believe the things that happened 1000’s of years ago? Absolutely I do. There’s nothing God can’t do, save for those things he’s already said he will not do.

      Thanks for the comment.

    • Hi JOHNCWS,
      i would like to share some thoughts about your question regarding the events that happen some 1000 or more years ago that is recorded in the Bible. Looking through history, I believe and it is even recorded in historical books and facts that are matching with the records found in the bible. Archeologists have discovered these. Parting the red sea? Noah’s Ark? The City of David?, to name a few. There are a lot of details to explain here but if you are resourceful, the Biblical records are true and accurate.
