    Adam.. we all make mistakes. Does not mean the vulnerable should die a horrible death. Just learn from our mistakes and hold ourselves accountable for how we behave.

    But who is holding God accountable for the misery he creates for millions of people? Why is it Ok for him to create terror across the land? How does that 'punish' in any sensible way? The people who suffer natural disasters are always the poor, not those who live well at the expense of others. How is that fair? I am sure you agree that does not make sense.

    It seems to me that being good to other people is just plain common sense.

    We do not need a God to be good. Just need to use common sense.

    Why do Christians need to be afraid of God in order to be good?

    Perhaps many were beaten as children and made to be afraid?

    Children who are not beaten or made to be afraid but treated kindly can and do grow up doing the same for their children. No need to be afraid - or make others afraid - in order to be good.

    Its common sense to be wary of those who would make us be afraid in order to do what they want.

    Common sense and treating other people as one would like others to treat us is sensible. Be with people who treat you with respect.

    Which roll did Caleb play in the bible

    Who died on the cross for our sins,?

    The rod? Have you heard a saying that goes "spare the rod, spoil the child" chastisement
    The staff? That was used as a comfort.. so to speak. Before the Bible was in existence
    To dwell in the house of the Lord?
    As a Christian, we are not perfect, we fall short daily, many times daily. We should live a Christian life, if ya know it's wrong, don't do it. Be ye a separate people. Do not be conformed to the world. Live your life as God was right there with you every second of the day. And pray ask for forgiveness when you mess up.. nobody can walk your walk but you. 😁

    What does the Bible say about worldly virus's that are deadly and an Epeidemic world wide?

    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.
  • 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.

    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?
  • 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

  • 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.

    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?
  • 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.
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 11
    What changes? What Bible? If you're assuming the King James Bible meaning has changed that is false and easily disproven. Link It's always said the same wolf, leopard, lion in verse 6. The meaning of the KJV Bible has been preserved and is easy to see, because the original 1611 A.D. translation is also on this website, so someone has the entire 400+ year span to easily compare to. Did you even look up this verse before you decided to criticize it publicly? Let's just deal with the truth and facts. Satan wants to deceive people into distrusting the Bible and he loves using people to spread his lies.
  • Janet Everitt on Proverbs 16
    If a soft answer turns away wrath, then would a loud,authoritative sounding voice cause wrath? My husband gets so frustrated with our son who has problems with addictions that he tends to talk real loud and bark orders at him. He thinks he is using Tough Love I guess, but it,s not working. We keep going around in circles with our son and getting nowhere with him as far as getting help for his addictions. My nerves are shot. I am on the verge of a nervous break down right now. We are believers in Jesus. What can we do differently? What are we doing wrong? This is so tough! Any suggestions! Thanks!
  • Adam - in Reply on Philippians 4
    If it's bioterrorism or something man prepared in a laboratory then it would be man-caused. But let's say it's mostly natural like other viruses or diseases, does that automatically mean you should blame God? This is a cursed and fallen world because of the original sin Genesis 3:13-19 and natural disasters are since allowed to happen. Everyone is going to die from Earth then have an opportunity to spend eternity in heaven or hell. Jesus died for you so you can be forgiven and spend an eternity in paradise if you accept his gift.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 7
    John 17:9 I (Jesus) pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
    James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
    1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
  • Zuki - in Reply on Isaiah 26:20
    If we will be taken before tribulation, victory over what we we be awarded? Last 7 plugs of Revelation 16:1-17 happen only to those whose Christianity is such that they obey both the two Beasts of Revelation. Bible is very clear, Revelation 12:17 is for the Righteous (in the merits of Christ alone, not self-righteousness. The scenario will happen as in the case of the 10 plagues of Exodus. All 10 occurred whilst the Children of Israel were still in Egypt. So all seven plagues will happen whilst the Saints are still on Earth, but will not harm them. They were only released to the promised Land after the 10th plague, and Saints (Remnant of the Church of Laodicea), to rupture after Revelation 16: 17.

    I agree.. humility and the ability to be grateful is so important. But grateful to whom? There are so many working hard right now to support people through the Corona Virus.

    If God created all things, why did he create the Corona Virus? Who should we be grateful to? The one who created the problem? Or the people who are trying to help get us out of this predicament?

    Or did God just make a big mistake this time?
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    That is an interesting statement and I am curious about how you see the Corona Virus.

    If we know ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love God, does this mean that Christians (who love God) believe all things are good? Do you believe the Corona Virus is good? Why do you think that?
  • Robert on Genesis 4
    What about different religions falling in love? If we love Jesus with all our heart might and sole should we not stay from the heart
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Why do we deserve nothing? My children deserve to live in a safe and enjoyable world and I have the power to help that to happen, so I hold myself accountable for doing everything I can to make that happen.

    Many Christinas believe God has All Power. Is he not accountable to do everything he can?

    So why did he create the Corona Virus? Should we not hold him accountable?
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    Why do you claim all good things are a product of God's work? But then say that the bad things are a product of Man's Free will?
  • David Orren - in Reply on Philippians 4
    How is Corona Virus NOT a product of God's work?
