  • Annysia on 1 Chronicles 3
    It's fascinating to see how David's bloodline reaches because of the power and lands he held during his time as a king. I didn't know that he ruled different lands at different times. What confuses me is he was regarded as being beloved by God but at the same time, teachings during that time say that polygamy was seen as wrong. Someone beloved by God should be abiding his teachings, right? I may be wrong with my timeline on when polygamy was regarded as immoral, though.
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Did not God himself commit and approve of many genocides? God killed everyone on Earth except for Noah's family in the Great Flood; God killed every inhabitant of Sodom and Gomorrah by raining hellfire down on them; God ordered the death of the Philistines by the Israelites when the Israelites marched outside their wall. God even guaranteed the deaths of Adam, Eve, and all of their descendants by explicitly denying them the ability to eat from the tree of life (simply because God did not want them to "live forever"). Did not God create death, as he created all things?
  • Abel on Genesis 4
    If God created humans in Adam and Eve, and Adam and Eve only had two children (Abel and Cain), then who is Cain afraid will slay him after he slays Abel? Who does Cain take as his wife from the land of Nod? Who lived in the land of Nod, if not humans created by God?
  • Abel on Genesis 3
    So, if God intended for us to live without clothes to cover our bodies, and only through humanity's first sin (eating the apple) do we clothe ourselves, then why are Christians today so against being unclothed? Is not the unclothed body the ultimate expression of God, since we were made in his image?
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    If God is all knowing without fault, he must know all of our actions, from past to future. If he knows all of our future actions, then are our actions not already decided?
  • Wonder if this the same or different Judas that betrayed Jesus?
  • Adam on 2 Esdras 10:23
    Wonder what the seal of Sion is?
  • Adam on 2 Esdras 9:23
    Wonder what the symbolism of the 7 days means here- cease 7 days, but no fasting?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 4
    Timothy was Paul's SON in the faith. Mark Chapter 3: 32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
    33 And he (Jesus) answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
    34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
    35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
  • Mary on Jeremiah 36:1
    Since beginning of lent prayer god has shown me several "i am the lord all powerful"each time i open the bible especially in battles but it recalled to mind 3 characteristics of god:omniscient:all knowing,omnipotent all powerful.and the one i was most thankful for:omnipresent!!! thank you jesus+++mary?
  • David on Genesis 28:16
    Link the reference and i not know? Who, and why do i see so many self bending scriptures for self gratification
  • Joyce Stewart on Genesis 4
    What scripture talks about a loaf of bread that will cost about 50 in the end timesJ?
  • Joshua - in Reply on Isaiah 65
    Stanjett - Yes. What reason does anyone have to overwrite the new testament with the old? God ordered His Word the way he did for a reason. That reason is for us to follow It in HIS ORDER.
    I think Jesus cleared up any and all confusion over Mosaic Law with these verses in 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. <<
  • Larry J Styles on Genesis 4
    I heard that Jesus said "Don't be afraid" 365 times in the King James Bible. How can I get the references on this?
  • Candice on Genesis 4
    Do the bible say samthing about a virus at end of time and how many sign are there for the end of time?
  • WILL - in Reply on Psalms 73
    Verse 25 reads: who have i in heaven but thee? it does not say "who have i in heaven but thee and deceased family. the dead in christ shall rise first. they can't do that if they are already in heaven ! think it through.
  • Bode on Psalms 51
    Sir,what can I do,in other to improve my memory power? I forget what I read,and when I remember,they are gone. Secondly, I need the following: Wisdom knowledge and understanding of the almighty Jehovah words.Thank you.Remain
  • Mickey on Revelation 7
    We are going to see glaciers melt, forests burn, volcanic eruptions and other fiery events on tv & news. There will be great protest to stop it, but it's on Gods program now. We have to stand behind Him and preach the Good News.
    People spend every day stuck in traffic, running to and fro. Minds in gridlock over jobs, money worries, rebellious kids, crime; ears plugged into streaming music & video. No one is thinking that it's all gonna burn! I'm an old street preacher. It's not that scary to take it out of this room into GO YE land. Read the fire scriptures & tell them the truth. Invite them to join you at church. My Bible has a faded sticker: Are you walking it or talking it?
  • Job on Obadiah 1
    My great grandmother was full blooded American Indian. What does that make me? 1/4, 1/16th? Black, white, yellow, red, olive. We are all sons of God. We are all brothers in Christ. He don't look on our color, He looks on our heart. Love one another, as Christ loves you.
  • Bruce - in Reply on Psalms 46
    While that's interesting, is it really the "World's greatest coincidence"? That someone found two words within a certain chapter of a book and tried to associate meaning to it? Someone can find such 'coincidences' with nearly any book, any writing, any author. Also the name isn't spelled the same. People claim to find all kinds of 'codes' elsewhere in the Bible too. Perhaps it's human nature to try to make random correlations seem meaningful. Wow, I just used 'the' four times, and the word four has 4 letters in it, which the Bible says the 4th day the moon was created which also has 4 letters! And there was a full moon tonight and now it's time 4 bed, wow!
  • Annysia on Song of Solomon 1:3
    The language used in this verse is particularly beautiful but I'm a bit confuse by it. My interpretation of this is the Lover's presence is so intoxicating to the Beloved that just hearing the name brings her joy. What confuses me though is the use of the word "virgins", is she simply referring to herself or do many people adore the Lover just like her?
  • Luna Vincent on Song of Solomon 1:2
    I've been researching on this quote and it's pretty interesting how open to interpretation the Song of Solomon is in general (is it from God to Man, Christ to the Church, etc.). What confuses me though is why the King James version decided to make the tone of this verse so calm? Other versions of the bible seem to have a lot of energy in their translations of this verse.
  • Anonymous Sibling in Christ Part II - in Reply on Romans 6
    So, it MAY help the sins to go away, the more you feed your Christianity muscles. Just like you get stronger by going to the gym and lifting weights for your body's muscles, or a marathon runner gets faster and gains more endurance the more they run/train. So to, with fighting off the spiritual darkness that wants us to FAIL! Also, there's POWER in calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ OUT LOUD! I am not the only one who has experienced this! You can pray silently, maybe praying aloud will help? But yes, Saying the Lord's FULL NAME OUT LOUD-remember the devils KNOW and OBEY HIM! "What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
  • Is this the same Adam as the first man created? I didn't know he had a son Sheth, unless that's the same man as Seth?
  • Job - in Reply on Revelation 7
    Why would God conceal info and make us not to understand? That don't make sense. I thought He wanted all to understand and come to Him.
  • 8
    They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony. What is this?
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    If you rob a bank, is that actually God's fault or your fault? God blessed you with freewill and total freedom to choose to do good or evil. Unfortunately some people choose evil. This is a fallen world and satan deceives people into doing plenty of evil. If someone gives into wickedness and harms others why assume that's God's fault? We aren't puppets or robots. If we were then we wouldn't have freedom and wouldn't have the freedom. Imagine if you forced your kids to say they loved you and to just do chores for you 24/7 without complaint, would that be as meaningful as if they choose to do it because they wanted to show love to their daddy? Maybe that's why God lets us choose for ourselves.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Joel 2
    Matthew 1:21 - And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. IS Jesus wrong that you use YESHUA? So is the Bible "mistranslated''? An angel of the Lord said to use this name. By what authority does anyone else have to use another? Just curious is all.

    Acts 4:12 - Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    King James Bible Jesus speaks in John 10:23 - 29:And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
    Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

    "But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you."

    But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
  • Job on Deuteronomy 2
    34
    And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain: Really Lord? You want to kill little ones and women. This makes me sad. Why kill the women and little ones?? I changed my mind. It don't make me sad, it makes me mad. And don't tell me it's Gods will. How could this be a loving Gods will?
