  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Hi David,

    >Why do I need to be forgiven? For what?!

    Have you ever made a mistake in your life and broke one of the 10 commandments? Have you ever once lied, stolen, dishonored your parents, coveted something, committed adultery, etc? If so, you've violated moral law and the punishment for sinning against God is death (Romans 6:23). Have you ever violated the laws of your city, state, county and had to appear before a judge? Did you accuse the judge of being wrong for punishing you, or did you realize maybe you were the one wrong? What if the judge found you guilty, but instead of you getting the punishment he took it himself for you? That's what Jesus did for you.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Greeks gave us the new testament Bible, not rome. Rome often killed those who tried to have the scriptures in their own language. David Orren you do not know what you are writing about. The new testament was written in Greek, not Latin.
    Do the names of william tyndale, and John Huss ring a bell.
  • Ross on Psalms 91
    I've read and re-read Psalms 91 and I must say this TRULY is the way the COVID 19 is affecting the ENTIRE WORLD.
    We, as Christians believe this, and are willing to put it out there for the world to see and understand.
    With God protecting us, who can be against us...
    We WILL continue as God wants us to, but only by His Grace shall we endure this pandemic.
    I pray that this will humble many people to give their lives to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
    For without Chist in my own life I AM NOTHING !!!!!
    Brothers and Sisters in Christ ,, please continue praying for one another.
    But MOSTLY pray for the lost souls that they may be receptive of the TRUE WORDS in The Holy Bible.
    God Bless
  • Mickey on 2 Esdras 1
    As far as burden carrying: there is an escape to burdens. Jesus said to cast those upon Him.
    Read these following scriptures. It's going to help you. Did you know worry is sin? Run to 1 John chapter 1 verses 8-9; 2:1

    Here's the burden scriptures: Matthew 11:28-29. Psalms 62:8. Philippians 4:6 and Galatians 6:5

    I found this to be true that when we are in extreme crushed mode, it's time to fast and pray. Fast from fun and feed on the Word of God. It's more painful than you think. Turn off all media. Emergency calls only. Read the New Testament. Get a pencil and mark some verses that give you peace. Repent as needed. In Church they say fast from food, Feed on the Word of God.
  • Mickey on 2 Esdras 1
    If you are thinking of marrying a divorced woman, you need to study these verses. Ask the Holy Spirit to read with you.
    Matthew chapter 5, chapter 19:1-9; Mark ch 10:2-12; Luke 16-18.
    I think it would be good to go to your Pastor and be counciled on remarriage. We are not under the law. Just civil laws.
    I know that we are not to stay in a marriage where someone brutalizes their mate physically. We are called to be at peace.
  • Aly - in Reply on Revelation 13:4
    I thought that also, that President Trump would become mormon or they would try to rule
  • Irene Taylor - in Reply on James 4
    Isaiah 59:2 - God does not hear ONLY the prayers of the wicked. Luke 5:32 and Revelation 3:19 - The repentive heart of the sinner, the one whom falls short, the LORD will hear. Phillipians 4:6 - Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be known unto God.
  • Katie robak on Psalms 91
    Usually I hear this prayer quoted as a command, commanding virus, or sickness to flee. I love Matthew Henry's teaching on this, no evil shall befall me, neither it shall come near my door that God has not ordained. That's the main point, when we put our trust in Him we can be reassured that God is holding us, our life is in his hands knowing the HE holds the key to life and death. He is the object of our faith.
  • JJ - in Reply on John 15
    I am sorry if my comment upset you. You don't have all the details and have no idea why I think it would cause people in my life to repent. My little sister followed me into the world of drugs and alcohol. She is now a practicing prostitute, as is her daughter, to be able to support their heroine habit. Because I was the older brother and an alcoholic and addict myself, I know there's no way, other than shock that will reach her at this point. I have lived a deplorable existence and an act such as that would be the most effective way to reach people. By showing them that the wages of sin is death. I was going to write a heartfelt letter and pray for the best. I changed my mind anyway. Blessu
  • Peter devost - in Reply on Daniel 3
    good question. He also was called by his Hebrew name. Layers in The Fathers word.
  • Saimone - in Reply on Philippians 4
    God has never made a mistake....we humans make mistake and have to face the consequence of it all. God will always intervene if we ask him to.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Does it matter? The bible was put together on the initiative of the Roman Emperor as a founding story to unite the tribes of Europe in acceptance of their rule. Its got some useful metaphors and can be used to educate children in some useful moral codes, but needs to be used carefully by adults or their children may grow up believing it literally.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Adam says that 'Jesus died for you so you can be forgiven and spend an eternity in paradise if you accept his gift.'
    Why do I need to be forgiven? For what?!

    This suggest that I am guilty of something. What exactly?

    You say that God is all powerful. That he created the heavens and the earth. So God has created the Coronavirus.

    Why do Christians not hold him accountable for this? If he were a man, he would go to prison for spreading Bioterrorism. Why don't Christians hold him accountable?

    Why instead do Christians assume PEOPLE are guilty about something for which we need forgiveness? Why do Christians flip reality and ignore the enormous suffering he has caused?
  • Craig on Psalms 127
    The Book of Psalms is a collection of individual songs and poems, each numbered.
    It is not a book separated into chapters, like the other books of the Bible.

    Therefore, it is not correct to speak of "Psalms Chapter 127," but of "the 127th Psalm," or "Psalms 127," or "Psalm number 127," or similar. It is not a chapter. Never was.

    It's exactly like Shakespeare's sonnets; no one refers to "Sonnets, Chapter X" but to "Sonnet Number X."
  • Fredda Fox - in Reply on John 14:21
    IMO does not mean earn your way,only try to do the best you can according to his commandnents,& a willingness to obey.Not striving for boasymtung,but with a humbled heart,wanting to do the right thing g.We know we are not & will not be perfect except thru Hesus Christ.He also said in his last words on the cross.It Is Finished.That means he paid it all.W ed cannot outdo or do better.There is no more said rifice.Ehen we are his sheep,his followers,& believers,we wish to,& have a yearning to do his commandments.But we are saved by AMAZING GRACE.It is not earned.We are called by our spirit,& freely given his eternal love.
  • Fredda Fox - in Reply on John 14:21
    Never strive,just obey
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Peter 3:19
    in a word YES Jesus went to Abraham's bosom recorded in Luke 16. Before Jesus all the old testament saints went there. On the other side were the wicked who rejected the Lord.
    Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. what was Jesus doing there? preaching the gospel
    1 Peter Chapter 3: 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
    19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
    fallen angels have no offer of salvation Hebrews 2:16
  • Bob Hilt on Philippians 4
    Do not fall for the mandela effect as the Bibles
    were not changed. if satan was able to go back
    in time and change the Bible, then that means
    he would be more powerful than the Lord God
    of the Bible. Must be you remember a pastor
    using a non king james version for the Lion
    instead of wolf.
    Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the
    lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the
    kid; and the calf and the young lion and the
    fatling together; and a little child shall lead
    them.
    God promised to PRESERVE his words and if
    things were changed, then He failed.
    The "lion shall lay down with the lamb" is a lyric
    made popular by the 1937 song, "Peace in the
    Valley"
  • Bob Hilt on Philippians 4
    Lion with lamb was a song
    It was first made popular by Red Foley and the
    Sunshine Boys in 1951 after being recorded by
    Sam Cooke of the Soul Stirrers in 1950 and
    rising to limited success. But it wasn't until Elvis
    Presley recorded the song on his first
    Christmas Album with the Jordanaires that
    "Peace in the Valley" received worldwide fame.
    On January 6, 1957, Elvis sang "Peace in the
    Valley" on the Ed Sullivan Show,
    After the popularity of Elvis' rendition of the
    song, many ministers around the nation began
    integrating the lyrics into their sermons.
    that is what people remember not changed Bibles.
    Satan does not have a time machine that God can not stop
  • Bill on 1 Peter 3:19
    Did Jesus preach in hell for 3 days? Can people or demons in hell still be saved?
  • Bill on Leviticus 21:14
    Is it a sin to marry a divorced woman?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply
    1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4
    >So why would you - or God - blame me for the sins that Adam committed?

    Hi David, do you feel that someone is blaming you for Adam's sins? Who? I don't know of anyone being blamed for that. Did you read the previous verse shared? It explains what happened after Adam and Eve sinned- the world was cursed in a sense. This explains natural things people consider bad. Also keep in mind that satan is considered god of this world and allowed to roam, deceive, and possibly even afflict people physically: 2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Corinthians 12:7. God allows things to happen and we sometimes sustain collateral damage from others or the natural environment. This world is very temporary for everyone.
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Who told you this was changed? Did you conclude this from your own research or did someone tell you this and just assume it's true? This is false and is proven in seconds by looking at the original 1611 published copy here: Link - notice it says 'bottles' just as the KJV has always said for 400 years. Other translations use the word wine skins, not KJV. It never has, so to claim otherwise is false. Is this the only verse evidence you have to support your assumption? Please compare all verses to the original 1611 AD first to see for yourself before posting such assumptions.
  • Lacretia Murphree
    Is there a verse in the Bible that says God will not give us more than we can bear?
  • Melisa
    What is the truth from God's word about blood transfusions and organ transplants in using these things to help a person?
  • Vanessa - in Reply on Mark 5
    Amen! If we would all humble ourselves and pray He will hear us and heal our nations, stay the course fear not for He alone has over come the world. We have a Mighty, Powerful, Loving, Healer, full of Mercy and Grace, we are blessed not by anything we can do but what He has done. Sinner saved by Grace through Faith, in Jesus of Nazareth . He gave us His peace. God Bless and the Lord be with you all always Amen. Sing out Praise to the Rock the unshakable, unmovable, Lord. Hallelujah I love Him
  • Lisa M - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    Of course I looked at the verse before commenting on it. We are talking about supernatural changes to the Bible. Look it up and see for yourself. Here is one: Mark 2:22. Wine skins has been changed to bottles. New wine bursts old wine skins, not bottles.
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Christians say that God created all things. Christians celebrate that God created all the beautiful natural things. Then who created all the bad natural things?

    And I am wondering what it is that I did in the first place? I cannot blame my children for the sins I may have committed. That would be unreasonable of me. I need to be accountable for what I do. . So why would you - or God - blame me for the sins that Adam committed?
  • Stan on Genesis 1
    Where in the bible does it say, God is his own place and sufficient for himself. Seeing that he is himself One and the whole.
