  • Gabriel on Luke 1
    dear Boyet Christian; mary was as blessed as any other person to be a conduit of divine Grace, to brand her as without sin would be to put her on a pedestal with Christ, that would be anathema - or is there another way of interpreting john 14:6?
  • Martha on John 17
    Matthew 24:36) “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father.if he would be god wouldn.t he know when that day is??????
    (Psalm 83:18) That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
    Matthew 22:37) He said to him: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’

  • Teresa on Luke 8
    Matthew 18:19 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.
    I need someone to agree with me for a healing of my back, pelvis, and sciatic nerve. I believe God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 Therefore, he is still ALL powerful and anything is possible with God. He has touched and healed many throughout the Bible, including the woman with the issue of blood, so it is but a little thing for him to touch and heal me. Am I failing to touch the helm of his garment? Do I know how? Sometimes it is hard for me to accept, “He Did It All For ME” I am asking that you will in faith agree with me touching this one thing (Physical & Spiritual Healing). Thanks, and God Bless You!!!
  • Rod on Genesis 3
    I can't wrap my mind what happened with Eve and Adam eating from a forbidden tree. There are those that said Satan took Eve's virginity but how could that be with Adam standing there?? He did know that Eve was his wife and he did know that a man leave his father and mother, join his wife and they become one.

    So, it's hard to believe Adam just stood there and watch Eve get taken advantage of in that situation.

    If Satan did take Eve's virginity, that tree of knowledge of good and evil bear some sort of fruit that was intoxicating. I think when Eve ate and gave to her husband, they both passed out from eating the fruit and Eve was thus taken advantage of and probably didn't know, nor did Adam.

    And when they awoken, they obviously knew something wasn't right since they knew they didn't just "go to sleep." It's the same if a woman wakes up from a date-raping drug. She will definitely know something happened to her, likewise Adam and Eve.

    And when they woke up, "guilt" probably was the first thing they felt and the fact they had to cover themselves, is a dead give-away and a guilty conscious that confirmed something sexual happened.

    Even still, it doesn't explain why Adam felt the need to cover himself. I can see Eve wanting to cover herself after it happened to her but Adam had no reason for doing so. So, just what really happened there?

    God cursed the ground for Adam's stake. That's a "partial" punishment as if he wasn't all the way at fault. The ground was cursed instead of him. And the fact he had to start eating herbs when he was eating "fruits that yield seeds" and "herb that bears seed" is quite indicative here.

    Only the wild beast or non-humans were eating herbs as raw off the ground. So, if God to punishment Adam by making him eat herb raw from the ground, could be indicative that a beast actually molested Eve? Ape?
  • Jonesy jones on 1 Samuel 20
    What does God first commands us to do? To love Him with all are hearts, souls,minds and to love our neighbors second.{fellow humans} Jonathan saw in David what the Lord saw in David and felt honored to be his best friend. David felt honesty and loyalty from someone who he could trust in a perilous and frightening time in his life. Johnathan personally experienced Davids great faith in the GOD of Abraham. What a story that would be. Ask him about that when you get to HEAVEN. PRAISE GOD
  • "In the Lord", is unclear. Does the Greek root shed any light as to the verse? Is this dealing with only mortal existence or in the life to come?
  • Moses parker on Genesis 1
    In Genesis I don't think that G'd is speaking in a literal way; particularly when he speaks of the creation of the heaven and the earth. For example, when G'd says "let there be light" I think that it's allegorical language extolling us to get knowledge; develop the intellect. Is not knowledge a light? Does it not allow us to see? On the other hand, ignorance is darkness. "And G'd divided the light from the darkness" is allegorical for the separation of ignorance from knowledge.
  • Bill Whiteley on Luke 14
    My earthly family may not be my eternal family. Some posts here come from a wordly point of view. What does a believer in Jesus and his word have in common with anybody who hates Jesus?
  • Takirid on Matthew 28
    BAPTISM AFTER EXAMINATION
    Jesus said we should be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the holy spirit. (Matt. 28:19, 20) What does this mean? Fatherhood refers to parenthood, and being baptized in the name of the Father shows that one recognizes the superiority and sovereignty of our heavenly Father, whose name alone is Jehovah. (Ps. 83:18) We must sanctify his name, respect his sovereignty, love his kingdom and serve its interests. (Luke 11:2) Next, being baptized in the name of the Son shows one’s appreciation for the high authority and position conferred upon the Son by the Father. There must be love and appreciation for the Son because he is the Ransomer. Without his sacrifice we could not gain life. How great a debt we owe him! (Isa. 55:4; John 4:42) Finally, being baptized in the name of the holy spirit means to recognize such spirit as the active force of Jehovah. It is that same force that unerringly guided the men of old to write the Bible, impelled the early Christians to withstand persecution successfully and that today guides Jehovah’s theocratic organization on earth.—2 Pet. 1:21; John 6:63; 1 John 5:6.
    One’s baptism is a public demonstration of death to a past course of life. If the candidate remained submerged in water, truly it would mean his death. Fittingly, one is raised to life as it were, alive to do the will of Jehovah. Thus one’s day of baptism could be said to be the day of one’s start in a new life. Baptism serves both as a public confession of one’s dedication and as a sign of one’s being an ordained minister. Doubly blessed by Jehovah is this individual. The date of one’s baptism should be recorded and remembered always. As far as Jehovah’s visible organization is concerned it is the date of your ordination to the ministry of the Most High.
  • Lonnie on Genesis 6:2
    Butch is right. Basically Wesley is saying that the godly line (Seth) mingled with the ungodly cain and this union produced giants. There is no godly line, if the line of seth is so godly then how come Noah and his family were the only ones on the ark? I believe the sons of God are angels no other interpretation makes sense.
  • I believe a literal translation of this book is perfectly fine. Husbands are instructed to love their wife's like Christ loves us so the parallels between the beloved and the Church are easy to make. Romantic intimacy could be how Christ views the Church but I think he would use different imagery to describe it.

    What does chapter 2 verse 6 say to you?
    "His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me".

    And chapter 1 verse 4?
    "Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers"

    And to the comment below, I do not believe we have to ask God for mercy in order to understand the bible. In Romans Paul explains how the Holy Ghost as well as Jesus Christ intercedes for us.

    "And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." Romans 8:23

    "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." Romans 8:26

    "It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us." Romans 8:34

    Life is not about how holy we are or who understands the bible the most. We were made to be loved by God and love Him back.
  • Ella on Exodus 34
    What does the word, tenor, mean in 34:27? Is it saying for Moses to write the explanation of the 10 Commandments down. In other words, just writing the 10 Commandments in another way but the meaning is still the same. God wrote the 10 Commandments with His finger and it says, "for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel". The covenant is the 10 Commandments. Please, I would love to see your imput. Thank you.
  • Karen on Revelation 1:1
    "he sent and signified it by his Angel". Why does everyone ignore this and then assume that the figure whom John see's is Jesus? From the plain text it seems that The Father gave the revelation to Jesus, who then relays it to John via his Angel. So when he says "I" he is not speaking of himself, but of God.
    And the figure that is described is the angel, not Jesus. Can anyone explain this to me?
  • @Sister's comment on 5/26/2010, 2:12pm...
    According to this particular verse:

    "But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such [cases]: but God hath called us to peace."
    (1st Cor. 7:15)

    Sister, according to this specific verse, which the Apostle Paul speaks by permission... not of commandment, he is stating that if a spouse, who is an un-believer, willfully leaves a believing spouse, then the believing spouse is no longer bound to the sacred vows of that marriage.

    Following up on that verse, Brother Paul also states, "Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife." (1 Cor. 7:27)

    Simply explained, Father God, would that no marriage would end in divorce; because it is really the slow death of the family unit.

    But many of us fail to obey the divine will of Father God; and wind up taking the path of His permissive will.

    Even in a marriage based on truly godly, righteous principles can end in divorce; if a man and a woman are not of the same mind, heart and spirit.

    In choosing a mate, we must seek Father God with all of our heart, mind and soul; in order for Him to lead us to the right mate.

    Next to salvation... marriage is, by far, the most important decision that a person will make in their lifetime.
  • Shante on Exodus 32
    So should a woman saint wear earings?
  • HARRY ALLISON on Psalms 45
    I AM still trying to grasp the CONCEPT of living under GRACE,and clothed in JESUS RIGHTEOUSNESS.MAYBE I AM TRYING TO SAVE MYSELF BY TRYING to please JESUS by BEING OBEDIANT TO HIS COMMANDS RATHER THAN ACCEPTING HIS GRACE ?JESUS LOVES ME ......
  • Missy on Matthew 1
    Since Joseph is not the biological father of Jesus, why then did the gospel trace Jesus's geneology through him- Joseph. or is is really traced through Mary, his mother????
  • Osuka joseph c on Psalms 101
    Does it mean,He that speaketh evil or lies concerning his neighbour will be destroyed? what of the man who does not what the progress of his neighbour.
  • Anonymous on Deuteronomy 33
    WHAT blessings did Moses pronounce on Simeon?
  • Queenvee1st on Psalms 37
    this chapter may refer to both the wicked and the upright in Christ. The Lord Jesus is saying not to be jealous over what the wicked has, because thier day will come when they will have not more than what the broke and saved people have. The wicked are in power RIGHT NOW, all over the world, they have all the wealth. they claim to be doing right by mans standards but, what about God's? they have so much but give very little to those in need, while theupright in Christ have very little to share but will give all that they have. There will come a time when Gods people will not be in want and have plenty to share and will have to share it with the wecked to keep them from dying, starving, loosing homes, whatever the case may be.
  • Timothy Wayne George on Genesis 34
    Did God approve of what Jacob's sons did after the rape of their sister Dinah? We must remember that God is a God of love, and love does no harm to his neighbor. We must love the Lord with all our heart,mind, and soul.
    We must love our neighbor as our selves. Love was not practiced in this passage nor forgiveness, and the consequence was more sin was committed. If we will stop the violence, then we must do as God has commanded. He who loves much has been forgiven of much, and he who loves little has been forgiven of little. Love is the fulfillment of the law.
  • Timothy Wayne George on Luke 13
    This chapter teaches us about repentance, and how that all must repent in order to be saved. We must enter into the strait gate. Jesus is the gate, and we must accept him, and turn from our sins. Praise God for his healing of the woman that had been sick for eighteen years on the sabbath, because he is Lord of Lords, and King of Kings. Jesus predicts his death, burial, and resurrection. Warns the religious leaders that they would see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob enter the kingdom while they will be left out. They will not be saved until they say blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Thank the Lord he is my Lord, and Savior today will you accept him too?
  • Joy Flagler on Luke 10:5
    This verse is actually referring to the house as is the next verse where it says your peace shall rest on it. I wonder about the son of peace being there. Seems like a divine entity. Spirit? Angel? when referring to sons of God, It is angels we talk about, what then the son of peace. A spirit of peace perhaps....more study necessary.
  • Bonnie on Deuteronomy 22
    I believe it is referring to the homesexual and lesbian deal. I do not believe a woman will go to hell for wearing pants. If we are to follow the Bible word for word then we would have lots of people killing their own children. read ch 21 vs. 18 to 21 of the same book. shall we start stoning children too?
  • Susan Dalton on Proverbs 31
    "Lest they drink, and forget the law..." (Proverbs 31:5)

    The word forget means to mislay. I live near a state highway and our mailboxes are alongside the road. When I go to get our mail, I look down the highway to see what traffic is coming. Sometimes tractor trailers can be coming side by side down the highway. When I see this I do not go up to the mailboxes, instead, I wait until the trucks have passed; the mailboxes have been replaced at least twice due to someone plowing through them.

    The other day I was walking up to the mailboxes. I was - just walking up to get the mail. I was not at the highway yet, but I heard a transfer truck. The noise perked up my ears which inturn perked up my mind: wake up, be alert, you are close to the road.

    We can forget and mislay the law. It's not that the law of safety was not in my mind before I heard the truck, but, at that time it was not on the front of my mind. I know I would have had safety on the front of my mind before I got to the mailboxes even if I had not heard the truck, but it was a reminder that the law can be mislayed. (not on the front of the mind) Many times we may not want the burden of carrying the law on the front of our minds, but it is a reponsiblity that we cannot mislay, especially, if safety of lives depends upon us keeping that law. If we mislay the law, in this case safety, we may find ourselves guilty of negligence. In the case of man's law, if the law is mislayed while driving, we would find ourselves guilty of reckless driving; or vehicular manslaughter, or other forms of manslaughter if someone was killed while the law was mislayed.

    If someone is intoxicated with drink, they forget the law. A drunk driver most likely has the law of not drinking and driving in their mind, but at the time of an accident because they are drunken they are not keeping that law. They actually mislayed that law when they made the decision to drink, and then to drink and drive.

    Sometimes mislaying the law may not be so obvious; its more like falling asleep at the wheel. In whatever case, the mind has departed from that which it should be keeping.

    When we forget the law something has taken its place. Accidents can be the result of the law which is in our mind being mislayed.

    Spiritually speaking, Jesus admonishes us to be sober and alert. It is not enough for us to know the Word of God, we must be keeping the Word of God.

    We are exhorted to gird up the loins of our minds; to have the mind of Christ.

    If we mislay the law, referring now to the Word of God, we may find ourselves guilty of drinking and driving with deadly consequences. The mislaying of God's Word results in sin which ends in death.

    Why do mother's tell their children the law over and over again? Are they not trying to engrave the law into their minds? Are they not seeking to keep the law on the forefront of their childrens' minds? Yet each child must grow up and keep the wisdom themselves.

    Everyday should be Mother's Day in respect to do not despise thy mother; or,in other words, do not despise the law of thy mother for it is your life.

    Lest we forget, remember: honor thy mother...that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
  • Bill on Revelation 1
    Studying history, one can only notice that throughout history religious men have percieved the apocalypse in their own time from Revs 1:1.Reading canon histories from across medieval europe they are all cirtain they live in the end of days. I personally deem 2000 years not a short period of time. Is this not more apt for creationist followers of the bible who see the world as 4000 years old. Could this be wrong? Or was the biblical perception of time different to modern social norms?


    Or is it as it always is when a religious person is wrong, a metphor and not real?
