    are humans the only animals that can think about their own thinking

    My answer Yes, we are the only animal with a mind.

    are humans the only animalsto have language? No, other animals have repetitious language. Look at a sparrow for example.

    can animals thinkand reason No. animal develop their Brains, repetitiously,

    how doanimals thinkwithout language once again, animals do not think; but they develop their Brain repetitiously and Neuroscientists, evolutionists and genetistist call it thinking as they believe that thinking comes from the brain and people do not have minds.

    can animals thinkarticle no. they see articles and develop then repetitiously;

    Also I call it semiconsciously developments as opposed to subconsciously thinking. My Theory of mind development is sub too conscious to unconscious. Animals are semiconscious too conscious to unconscious. We can do both but generally we only go the the semiconscious stage unless we decide to use repetitions in our development. If we go further than the semiconscious repetitious stage accidentally; we develop disorders. .

    can animals thinkrationally NO; Brains only repetitiously

    what doanimals thinkofhumans,

    depends how repetitious we are, and they are. it depend on we and they but, of course animals do not think but you can develop them repetitiously quite a bit; and they get use to responding to you and others depending on how you treat them;

    however there was a man on twitter who had a bear trained repetitiously and had a picture of the grizzly with his head in the bears mouth. i advise him that that was still a wild animal who any second could eat his head. he was never heard from on twitter after.
  • S on Luke 23:31
    Should you join the world in peaceful protests?

    I don't think so because that's of the world. Jesus didn't come to bring peace but a sword and taking up your cross doesn't include protesting with the world.
  • Luany Reber - in Reply on Revelation 22:14
    Jesus never cancelled the 10 commandments. He upheld them. He died for us because we can not truly obey the commandments without failing. That does not mean that then sinning is to be ok. Never. Romans 6:1. "What then, shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means!

  • Adam - in Reply on Romans 12:8
    Hello, yes, I believe the whole Bible applies. I've heard people claim that Jesus fulfilling the law is abolishing the law, that it no longer applies whatsoever. Jesus already said that is wrong in the exact same verse of Matthew 5:17. He said he was not abolishing the law. So, I believe Jesus over what random people say. Fulfilling the law was through his death to pay for our sins, so we have grace as long as we follow Jesus- this is an active pursuit though. But that doesn't mean the law is gone. Keep in mind that Israelites has more than just moral law, but civil law, and ceremonial law. We don't need to follow the Israelite specific laws, just moral law. For example, 'do not kill'. Are some claiming that it's now just fine to kill your neighbor because Jesus fulfilled the law? That would be a very difficult argument for one to make that it's totally good to kill, when the Bible clearly says the opposite.

    Jesus already said what happens to people who are inactive, who do nothing, who blaspheme, who follow the world, who use grace as an excuse to sin as much as possible Matthew 7:21-23. Jesus says if you love him, then keep his commandments. John 14:15. If you don't keep them, you don't love him. If you don't love him and don't follow him, is it likely you'll be invited to spend eternity with him in heaven? Jesus warned his followers repeatedly through parables that most people will go to hell. It's interesting how some Christians are trying to claim sin is okay, that it doesn't matter and that it's wrong to say it's wrong. Satan is the great deceiver and even works within the community of believers to spread his lies. It's clear what Jesus already said, so I'm going to believe and follow him and his words, not the words of man.

    James 2 and Romans 6 explain this.

    Note that this is my belief through years of Bible study and prayer and you will have other Christians claim otherwise. I already know all their arguments and find them unbiblical. God bless...
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj on Amos 5
    Extend the Hand of Christ

    In this chapter we see Amos morns for Israel as they believed their wealth and religion made them secure while suppressing and victimizing the poor. In making application we see that many today follow in the same path of preaching prosperity while ignoring and suppressing the poor. Today our focus should be on Ministry or Service to restore the poor, needy, and sin sick showing them the way to a better life is Jesus-Christ. How about you? Do you Restore the needy or are you too busy to help others who find themselves in sins pit? Let us learn from our text today and the warning of Amos to extend the hand of Christ who find themselves in a pit due to their sin.

  • Teboho on 1 Corinthians 12:8
    What is the difference in the spiritual gifts we see in chapter 12 of the book of Roman's and chapter 12 of the book of 1 Corinthians. Is correct to say there are 15 spiritual gifts and that each one of us is gifted in one of these areas?

    God bless
  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    Greetings Peter And my god richly bless you! - Thank for YOUR INTELLIGENT reply!

    I will try to address your quires as best I can - possibly not all in one email - If I do manage to - Well and good!

    Firstly what do I think God would say to a person asking God "Do you hear my prayer?" I think he would have said - "Of course I hear your pray Peter! My Holy spirit dwells within you! I hear your every word speak, in prayer or ingest - Your every thought, and in fact, I know exactly how many breaths you have taken , and exactly how many you have left.

    Do not think that you were stupid asking that question! - Even David in the many Psalms he wrote kept crying out "Hear my cry oh Father, hear my cry oh Lord. Even though the Lord had done many things for him,

    I believe that the scripture "where two or more are gathered etc" is related to the prayer of agreement in the verse above

    19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    20 "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

    I'm am not a bible teacher by any means But - I am sure this means that there is more power for God to act when two or more UNITE IN prayer As in -

    Deuteronomy 32:30

    How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

    You see there is power in numbers - when people get together pray and do anything in the name of the Lord

    But!

    Even when you are alone God still hears you - Did he not enter you life when you asked for salvation?

    Matthew 21:22

    And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive, and you shall have them

    Well Mate! I will leave it there for now and work through your questions slowly - you will hear from me tomorrow -

    Gods blessings to you and your family

    By the way - Where do you live?

    2nd part reply

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law (Galatians 3:13 NASB).

    The apostle Paul said the Law was added only until Christ comes:

    Why the Law then? It was added because of transgressionsuntil the seed should come to whom the promise had been made (Galatians 3:19 NASB).

    Paul goes on to say the Law was our "tutor to lead us to Christ"; now that we are justified in Christ, we are no longer under the Law:

    But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor (Galatians 3:23-25 NASB).

    While the moral principles expressed in the Ten Commandments are reaffirmed in the New Testament, the command to observe the Sabbath is the only commandment not repeated. There is no New Testament command for believers to set aside the Sabbath as a day of worship. Exodus 31:13 says the Sabbath was a "sign between God and Israel," not God and the church.

    The first Christians were, of course, Jews, and when Gentiles began to enter the church, some Jewish Christians (Judaizers) tried to force new Gentile believers to follow the Law and observe the Sabbath (among other things). It became such a problem that Paul warned that no believer was to judge another believer with regard to the Sabbath:

    Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day-things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ (Colossians 2:16-17 NASB).

    A shadow is only an image cast by an object which represents its form. Paul said the Sabbath was a "mere shadow" that pointed to Christ. Once a person finds Christ, he or she no longer needs to follow the shadow.

    I hope this helps, God bless you.
  • Chris - in Reply on Ezekiel 37
    That is true, many Churches tend to bypass, & some even rejecting, the Old Testament as history applying to the Jewish people & of no consequence to us in the Church age. What are some of these erroneous 'modern doctrines' you speak of?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 50:8
    Sean, have you admitted that you've sinned and desire to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

    After the new birth begins, the Holy Spirit will be in your life to help you pray, get free from things that hold you back; read a Bible and understand it. Start in 1, 2, 3, John in the back of the Bible (in front of Revelation).

    If you have YouTube you can watch some ministry programs by Charles Stanley. If you have any fears or questions, you're person to run to is Holy Spirit. He will never leave you or forsake you (quit on you). He will give you strength. Confess as you feel the need and you'll be free of it forever.

    Ask Holy Spirit to help you find a church nearby.
  • Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    Thank you for referring me to Job, I loved that chapter. I always thought that job was the man who got sick and when his friends sort of mocked God by saying things to Job; jpb would not against God and in this chapter God says so many things that he knows of course is true whule at the same time He asks Job so much like for example when I prayed years ago " father in heaven i know that when 3 people are gather in your name, you will hear their prayer but i am only one; and have noone to pray with and so i don't if you can hear my prayer???? do you know what he said to me. what would ypu say as I did say that you sound like an intelligent man and you were from Australia. and I wanted to ask you about "the ape people who remains they found in Australia and they were even a couple of millon years older than cave men. Do u know anything about them; and what answer did you have for my first question> What do you mean you didn't know? and after that I changed or he changed me; and i won't tell you or anyone what else he said. It is too frightfull; and i don't think anyone will believe me and i am afraid that they will. would you believe a mental patient? I don't think that i would believe them all without God; and when I consider that; i don't know what i would do? Let me know abput those ape people.
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    >If Adam and Eve were the first two humans on earth, where did Cain find a wife?

    The Bible already answered that. The land of Nod. Either Adam and Eve's children and grand children populated in that area or God may have created more people after Adam and Eve. But to assume that just because something is unspoken that there's automatically contradictions or multiple accounts sounds like a false assumption to me. For instance the Bible is a limited book to only so many pages. There's no room to document every single detail of everyone's life. For instance there's ages of Jesus' life that we don't have any information on, and it never said once that he went to the bathroom or took a shower. Does that automatically mean he didn't or that since the Bible omits it that it's untrue? No, that would be a false assumption.

    Jews were God's chosen people which is why its distiguished from others. I don't understand why you think that discredits the book of Genesis.

    >Why do we have different races on the planet after 6000 years of inter-breeding? A change in the location of a person does not make him a different race!

    Why would you assume there's 6000 years of interbreeding? Have you ever read about the Tower of Babel? It says different languages were created and they were dispersed throughout the world. It seems likely to me that God also made different races/cultures and the Bible just doesn't mention it. So, Africans to Africa, Chinese to China, Indians to India, Russians to Russia, etc. To me that is most likely and just because it's not mentioned doesn't mean that the book of Genesis is flawed or has multiple accounts or contradicts itself. I think it's unlikely that 8 people on Noah's Ark covered all the variety of races and cultures and were separated geographically too. This happened post-flood. That's all I will answer at this time. God bless.

  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 1:29
    That was an interesting discovery, Ceyz. Most of our fruit & vegetables today are either grown from seed or have seed in them. There are instances where a very few manage to fruit without fertilization or where farmers/scientists have genetically modified the plant to produce another variety with no seed. However, I wonder whether any of these existed when God created the vegetation for the Earth & therefore gave that declaration, "the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." And whether God didn't anticipate us modifying His creation when He made that declaration? Or, could it mean that in the original creation as for any plant today, there must have been a time when the existence of that plant was from a seed & it produced seed in its natural survival of its species? Though I suppose if someone is strict about this matter, then for conscience sake they would avoid any fruit that has no evident seed within it, regardless as to whether at some point earlier, the fruit was actually produced from a seed & had seeds in it.

  • Patty Tozi on 1 Timothy 2:4
    The ending of time - is the beginning of seeing God's true Love for us. The war is on for our soles. Evilness is fighting God's Angel's now. The fight is on. No straddling the fence any more. Who do you choose in these times? Make up your mind. For our Lord comes as a thief in the night. No more chances to choose once He comes. I cannot express how it will be. More poweful then ever imagined.. In a dream l saw the clouds opening with our Lord Jesus and His mighty angels coming down. So powerful the mountains moved. Can't hide. You had your chance. Meet your beginning and your ending of your life. He is here !!!

    Adam,

    If the book of Genesis is one cohesive book, then why are the events of Genesis chapter 10 concerning the dispersion of the children of Noah given to us BEFORE the cause of their dispersion in Genesis chapter 11? (i.e. the scattering of the sons of Noah in chapter 10 took place BECAUSE of the events that happened at the Tower of Babel in chapter 11)

    If Adam and Eve were the first two humans on earth, where did Cain find a wife?

    If Adam and Eve are the ONLY two people from which all humans descend from, then why does God make a point to distinguish between a Jew and a Gentile? (1 Corinthians 10:32)

    Why do we have different races on the planet after 6000 years of inter-breeding? A change in the location of a person does not make him a different race!

    Why does the HEBREW definition of the word "Gentile" refer to a FOREIGN nation from the nation of Israel?

    Why is the word "man" in Genesis 1:26 given in plural and defined as "mankind in general"?

    Why is the word "man" in Genesis 2:7 given in singular form, with the article, denoting the particular man Adam?

    Some of these topics may require research; (2 Timothy 2:15).

    Remember, the Bible was not written in English!

    There are many resources available to help gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God: Concordances (Strong's), Interlinear Bibles (Green's), Commentaries, etc.

    May God be with you in your quest to understand Scripture!

  • Diann Rodgers - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Perhaps you need to find a project to do. Think back to your school days and summer breaks. We're you down then too? Or did you participate in projects.

    These projects can be creative or research. You can look outside. Write down all you see out of a window.

    Creative;

    Draw- doesn't have to be a masterpiece

    Paint- same

    Sew, knit, crochet, embroidery, needle point, tat, hairpin lace, etc. .... same

    Build- same

    Put together or take apart- same

    Cook, Bake- same

    Research;

    *Start with an object then see how you can change it. Or why it is growing. How does it grow. Or if not living research how it was created and formed in the manner it was. If you see a flying object.

    *Answer all the w questions ... Who. What. When. Where. Why. Then an H... How.

    Now you develop;

  • Bob Hilt on 1 Timothy 2:4
    DJ - I do not much care for Lexicons of the modern era and yes publishers are changing the meaning of words. what does being gay mean? Happy or a sodomite?

    Henry Thayer has a lexicon and he was a Unitarian that did not believe in the deity of Jesus and his word definitions reflect this. I had a Strong's concordance from the 1980's and the word definitions are not the same as the modern ones.

    Gerhard Kittel has a Greek Lexicon that is an absolute standard in Bible colleges and he was an early member of the Nazi party of Hitler. So should we trust a Nazi to tell us what the words in Greek really mean? This is not a conspiracy theory as it is well documented. Kittel was to face war crimes after WW 2 and he died before trial.

    Zondervan is the exclusive printer of the NIV Bible.

    Zondervan is the largest printer of Bibles in the English speaking world. They are owned by Harper Collins which prints gay p orn and the Satanic Bible for the church of satan. Their parent company is the News Corp we know as Fox TV.

    Bad tree = bad fruit. They are changing the word definitions.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Philippians 4:17
    If we follow the center page columns of Genesis; it leads to other references, which on those pages lead to other references, forward and backward.

    Scriptures about Lucifers fall; becoming Satan and meddling in Gods work begins to show what happened.

    The 1/3 evil angels were cast out of heaven and hurled to earth with Lucifer. They are referred to as: other people's or inhabitants. Just search those words in Old Testament.

    We don't know what they looked like (caveman vs human-like), they were pre-Adam. Being evil they We're probably evil going forward. If their bodies were destroyed, that would explain how demons are invisible but unmistakable in their fruits.

    Somehow scripture says that God turned the earth upside down. I have no idea what would result if you flip the POLES. It turned to ice. God took everything away that made life livable on earth. Lucifer got them all killed? Looks like God left it like that for some time.

    Back in the history pages I listed some of those scriptures; about the ice, etc. it's all KjV Bible. No interpretation. All was written in Hebrew, original text.

    I had a lot of that info in my Bible with boxes drawn around them. I had not made the connections with the center references.

    I'm praying now if God even wants us to put this "out there"?? We know there are demons on this planet already. Somewhere back there they lost their human-like bodies. Now they search to inhabit bodies by deceit and lies. Reprobate people invite them in for power to deceive humans.

    Every one (demon) Jesus encountered, got cast out! No bargaining. Why study this? Untaught people, unbelieving people, are being driven crazy and whipped in to frenzy by riots. Like the one that in unison screamed for Jesus's crucifixion. Riots have become the norm since the Wash. DC, LA riots. Maybe God wants people to know what the work of demons are, so they will turn to Jesus for deliverance and salvation?

    Look in the history pages (1-5).
  • Jesse - in Reply on Romans 12:8
    Teboho,

    I would just like to touch on the sin issue. Something to consider when asking about what is sin and what is not is that in Romans 14:23, it says for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. That is a powerful statement. Anything that is not of faith is sin. And since the literal definition of the word faith means persuasion, anything that is not prompted by God's Spirit is sin. It is God's Spirit in us that persuades us to do the things that are pleasing to Him. That's what it is saying. That's what faith is.

    Faith is the persuasion and leading of God's Spirit. And anything that is not of faith is sin. So there's your definition. So whatever it is, ask yourself if God's Spirit is persuading you to do that. If it's not His Spirit persuading you, then it is sin. That's just something we have to ask ourselves, no matter what it is we are partaking of. It's a personal relationship between you and Jesus Christ. What is He persuading you to do? Do that. Anything else is sin!
