  • Clint on Genesis 2
    @Chris, it may seem that God created man twice but in reality the second mention of creation is a recap or retelling with details not mentioned the first time! I hope that helped?
  • Ken on Psalms 8:8
    Again, what scientific fact or principle is, "Oceans have natural paths in them"?
    Oceans have currents, sure, which are apparent to any sailor or coastal dweller who pays attention, but what are "natural paths" exactly?
  • Ken on Job 26:7
    What "Scientific Fact or Principle" is, "There is a place void of stars in the North"? If this is being portrayed as a statement that the earth is unsupported then a few short verses later "The pillars of the heavens quake" would seem to belie any advanced knowledge of how gravity and the Cosmos works.
  • Aurora on John 17
    Why is God's name, YHWH JEHOVAH, eliminated? It is in the King James hard copy!
  • Timothy Wayne George on Luke 12
    Luke 12:32 Fear not little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give us the Kingdom. We must seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto us.
    When we remember the poor, and take up our cross daily we are laying up treasures in heaven that will not pass away. The only inheritance that we should be concerned about, is what is being stored up in heaven. Jesus is the judge, and He will have us to give an account of how we used the treasures that He gave us, for the glory of God. So be like the ravens, who neither sow or reap, and yet our heavenly Father provides for them. So how much greater are we than they?
  • Frenz on Isaiah 59
    The MAIN OBJECT IN THIS VERSE IS THE WORD OF GOD (Isaiah 55:8-11). VERSE 8, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. Verse 9, For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Verse 10, For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: Verse 11, So shall my word be that “goeth forth” out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. It seems whenever I struggle or face a tough trial there are very few places I can find refuge and strength. Often a close friend or mentor can help. Sometimes it is my spouse or my kids. Just being around family is therapeutic to the soul. However, there is one thing that never fails me, and that is the Word of God. God's Word never ceases to amaze me. It truly is a book of life. In this chapter, God said, "His Word will never return to Him void." That simply means, It will never return empty handed or in vain. Most of us understand that everything in the Word of God is profitable. However, I draw your attention to the words, "goeth forth". The Word that doesn't return void is the Word that 'goeth forth'. The Word that is profitable is the Word that is 'spoken' out of our mouth. God's Word doesn't help us if it stays on our bookshelves. God's Word doesn't accomplish what God wants it to if we don't speak it. I realize this article may be read by hundreds of preachers; however, I am not referring to preaching in this article. If the only spoken Word in our lives is the Word we preach, then we have miserably failed. Yes, we need to study, read, meditate, share and preach the Word. Yet, I am stating that we need to literally speak the Word out loud. We need to verbalize it over and over again. Not only from our pulpits, but over every situation in our own lives. If we can speak the Word to others, why can't we speak it unto ourselves? This is how our faith grows. This is how we make it through the fire.
  • A.Mike V. on Genesis 1
    Beyond my mind, beautiful, we enjoy awakening daylight as such God's creation made the choice in envy to be alike the Creator and was actually not in loving relationship by disobedience (choice). How could the first man understand death as judgment. I think the living in paradise was like Heaven without sin, closeness with God as Friend/Helper + restored by Jesus. By His coming out of death the serpent's head was destroyed? Why does Satan still have that power over lives?
  • Mike Vellinga on Genesis 2:5
    Did it not rain on the earth until the days of judgment Noah, at the flood?
  • Naphright on Isaiah 46
    To the remnant of the house of Israel, To whom can you liken The Almighty to, and make him equal, and compare him, that he may be like? He has carried you from the womb to the old age. Remember He is the only GOD and there is no one else, none like Him. So why is the Christ of the New Testament being liken to the Almighty our only redeemer?
  • Mary on 2 Samuel 21:1
    2 Samuel 21:1-9 Principle illustrated: David taking responsibility for Saul’s actions which shows David being a man after God’s own heart. There was a famine in the land of Israel because Saul had killed the Gibeonites. David faced the Gibeonites for Saul to see if there was anything that he could do for them. They demanded that he deliver seven men of Saul’s sons to them because they had insisted that they should be destroyed. The Lord chose the men who He wanted David to send. David did not send Mephibosheth because of his oath with Jonathan not to destroy each other’s seed. The Gibeonites would hang those men for what they had done. The consequences from wrong doing can be devastating.. God has brought to my attention that everything I do has an influence on people. I sometimes forget that people look up to me. What I think is “why me?” I am nobody special. I am just a sinner trying to live for God. People notice when you “do” and “do not” do the right thing and live for God. Through my years, I have learned that doing the right thing is what God wants us to do and if we do it we will be set up for the blessings. God blesses and removes the chance of famine when I learn to do what is right.
  • Darryl on James 2:15
    If you feed them, give them clothing have you not given them the things needed for the body? Is there more than the body needs? James 2:15,16
  • André on Genesis 2
    @Arthur,
    Genesis 4 is the only section of the Bible that tells the story of Cain (and Abel), though they are also mentioned in few other sections of the Bible. And one section is not enough to tell one’s whole life.
    Yet the Bible says that Adam and Eve had two sons; Cain and Abel. Cain was land tiller and Abel sheep keeper. They both offered sacrifices of their fruits and God pleased only with Abel’s and was displeased with Cain’s; which caused Cain to get wroth with Abel, and ultimately slew him.
    Genesis 4:
    ‘’11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
    12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.’’
    A fugitive and vagabond shalt thou be, which means he would have no fixed settlement, he would move from place to place, he could be seen at a certain time and disappear again.
    Verse 14 says ’’Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth;’’ Now, was Cain really driven from the face of the earth? The earth is figurative of man’s community. Cain lost harmony with the community.
    Verse 16 says ‘’And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.’’ But could Cain really depart from the presence of the LORD ? No. this simply means Cain lost fellowship with GOD; otherwise he was still in face of the LORD.
    Verse 17: ‘’And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived,..’’ Now what may be the space of time between verses 16 and 17? It certainly took many years during which Adam and Eve were having other sons and daughters and Cain was coming and going as vagabond. It is in the course of this time that he got one of his siters for wife.
    Genesis 5:4 ‘’And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:’’
  • Donald Volz on 1 Samuel 18
    (I Samuel Chapter 18 verse 10)What does that mean? And it came to pass on the morrow, that the Evil Spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a Javelin in Saul's hand.
  • Arthur on Genesis 2
    A few comments on questions I've seen. In the original Jewish Torah from which the first five books of the Bible come. Genesis 2:18 says God "had created" the animals. They were created before and He was just now bringing them to Adam. As for the comment that there had to be other people besides Adam that God created because Cain mated with one of them in 4:17, that was after he had killed Abel which had to be not too long before Seth was born because in 4:25 Seth is called a replacement for Abel. Seth was born 130 years after Creation, plenty of time for Adam and Eve to have had lots of children and for those children to have children and for those grandchildren to have children etc. etc God giving man dominion over the animals didn't make man the top of the food chain. Man didn't get permission to eat meat until after the Flood (Genesis 9:3) Now a question. Was Cain the first child born to Adam and Eve? If he was then he would have been almost 130 years old when he killed Abel and I'd always thought of them being young when that happened. And would he really be just getting around to taking a wife at that advanced age?
  • André on Genesis 6
    @Peter,
    Yes, there are evidences of fossils dated millions of years, and those might not be the oldest ones, because time is endless. And the Bible happily does not ignore such evidences, neither does it deny them. Yes such evidences are true, and the Bible acknowledges them.
    Genesis 1:1, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
    Genesis 1:2, And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
    God created the heavens and earth in Genesis 1:1, and in Genesis 1:2, the earth was without form. God could not create it without form, but it became without form (upside down).
    So what caused that? It is the fall of Satan along with his army that brought all such disturbance and quenched all life on earth.
    And in Genesis 1:3, God starts bringing things back to order.
    So those fossils discovered every now and then belong to the period between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
    So God is not in contradiction with such discoveries. In fact they confirm the turmoil consecutive to Satan’s fall.
    God bless you.
  • Peter on John 3
    Everlasting life sounds good at first, but don't you think you'd get bored after 15 million years or so ?
  • Jeanne nelson on Matthew 6:25
    Can this be applied to overcome my compulsive food obsession, and guilt, and ultimately overeating. I am constantly worrying about everything I eat "Is this bad? Is this good? Am I bad if I eat this?" I want to have God show me how to "take no thought" I want freedom to seek Him first.
  • If the bible is the divine word of God, how can it be changed by man?
  • André on Genesis 4:5
    @ Aggie,
    1 John 3:12 states ‘’Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.’’ This simply mean Cain’s heart was basically wicked and the problem with his sacrifice was just an expression of his wicked heart.
    And you and I know that God looks at the heart, and makes no exception of person ( Deuteronomy 10 :17, Acts 10 :34-35).
    God bless you.
  • Peter on Genesis 6
    Andre, thank you for explaining that. Now it makes perfect sense. One more question. How did kangaroos get to the ark ? I thought they lived in Australia?
  • Peter on Genesis 7
    I must say that I am impressed that a 600 year old guy could build a gigantic ship. Did they have Home Depot in those days?
  • Ann on 1 Timothy 2
    Let The Woman Learn In Selince With All Subjection... I Really Want To Get More Understanding About This Verse?
  • Dedria medlock on Acts 28
    I love the entire Bible. Acts is awesome; I want to study online to get a degree in this field. I'm in Brunswick, Georgia. Do you know any Bible schools here?
  • Aggie on Genesis 6:1
    If daughters were just being born to them, then who were they having all these children with??
  • Aggie on Genesis 4:5
    Why no explanation as to why his offering was not pleasing? It would have more sense to elaborate on why. I am not seeking man's reasoning as to why, so don't bother hypothesizing.
  • Doc on Acts 16:30
    I believe it asks one of the most important questions. "What must I do to be saved?" The next verse answers "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!!!!"
  • Mapkik on Revelation 17:10
    The verse explains itself,”…and one is, and the other is not yet come;…”. This would indicate the one yet to come is not the one that existed at the time of St. John’s writing. If you dove tail this prophesy with that of Ezekiel’s prophecy of the bad shepherd, who has a withered arm and a withered eye. Ezekiel further describes this individual as the Assyrian. As far as I know there have been no historical persons who have held this title. Assyrians assisted the Romans in the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 73 AD. Without their aid Rome could not hope to maintain a siege that lasted 3 ½ years. If this analogy is accurate, you may still ask who then the harlot is and where are the seven hills located? There were three Cities constructed on 7 hills during John’s life. Rome, Constantinople, and Jerusalem, of the three Jerusalem fits the term Babylon (Heaven’s Gate), as Jesus said they themselves do not enter nor do they allow others to enter, heaping burdens and not lifting a finger to help them. I am not being anti-Semitic, but I agree with what St. Ignatius of Antioch (a disciple of John), though Judaism brought about Christianity, Judaism is completely dependent on Christianity. Everything in the Law of Moses was to prepare a people for the coming of our Messiah Jesus Christ. Now that Jesus has come, the temple and temple sacrifice is insufficient for salvation. St. Paul was rather adamant in the letter to the Hebrews, the fallacy of offering sacrifice in the temple after you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, as if Jesus could be sacrifice a second time.
  • Enrique Cárdenas on 1 Corinthians 8:6
    SIMPLE, HOW YOU READ: That there is JUST ONE GOD the Father and ONE LORD the SON. Yeshua explains that in: 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 Catholic Church changed de words GOD OR YAHWEH has LORD, even in the New Testament to turn the Son in God because if they had not done it their Mother of God would not exist.
  • Peter on Jonah 1
    Andre - Lucky enough for Jonah. Even though it is bad enough to be covered in fish vomit, I guess it beats the other possibility. By the way, how did Jonah breathe ? I guess God provided air using his super powers. Did he also provide some crossword tablets so Jonah wouldn't get bored ?
  • Peter on Genesis 5
    Wow, people sure lived a long time in those days. What do you get someone for their 600th birthday? If someone asked one of these guys how old they were and they answered 637, would you say "you don't look it"?
