  • HARRY ALLISON on Proverbs 8
    I CANNOT PUT LIMITATIONS on JESUS.HE IS SPIRIT,not limited by time or space.SINCE HE is "ONE"and unlimited by time and space ,is it possible JESUS could be laying HIS LIFE DOWN FOR ME ,walking on the water,healing blind BARTIMAEUS,and saying,"LET THERE BE LIGHT",all at the same moment?(food for thought)
  • K Clark on Genesis 12
    Where did Pharaoh and the Egyptians come from? Back in Chapter 7, they were all wiped away, and there seems to be an extensive geneology in Chs 8 to 11, so where did all these Egyptians, including a Pharaoh!!!, and advanced society suddenly arise from???????
  • Wessy on Ecclesiastes 6
    Its gud 2 serve him with our wealth. He is the Jehovah jireh; our provider. Why do we want blessings and not the blesser? I will serve him with all my wealth!
  • Mark on Luke 2
    Response to previous comments.

    The problem here is the same problem that has existed since the time of Christ.

    The Bible tells us that it is the actual Word of God, yes written by human writers, but inspired and breathed out by God Himself. How do we know this to be true? For those of us who are truly christians, we have a personal relationship with God, through the Lord Jesus Christ.

    No-one can tell me that this is a figment of my imagination, because it is a daily living experience and reality for me. Furthermore, no-one can tell me that the Bible is false, because I know the one who authored it and have proved it to be true in my daily life.

    Of course, those who do not have this relationship with God will always mock and doubt, because they do not have the same personal experience. Sadly, the Bible says unless such individuals repent and turn to God now, they will have chosen to spend eternity away from God, in a place of hell.

    Some will read this and laugh - doesn't matter to me, some will agree - it all depends of course where you stand before God. See John chapter 3 verse 16.
  • Ditim W. J. Musi on Isaiah 42
    Grant who is your God then if not Jesus as you relied on Mark 13:32?
  • Chris on Jeremiah 2
    Wow, its amazing how people can take whatever they wish from these passages. Or take one phrase or part of a phrase and make it a whole life's obsession.

    If one claims to be a Christian, does that mean you take the teachings of Jesus over the old testament? Or can you pick and choose parts of the bible to affirm your point of view while discarding the rest.

    If Jesus walked among us today, would he be on Wall Street or with Occupy Wall Street?
  • Nerak on Genesis 8
    What did they eat and drink while they were on the ark?
  • Truth on Genesis 1
    Verse 3 and 5-light was created on the FIRST day verse 14 to 19 the cause of light stars and the sun etc was created on the FOURTH can the cause of light be created on the 4th day later than the light which came in to existence on the first day? Iam realy confused
  • Perry on Luke 17:26
    compare the days of noha going to and fro to today
    going to and fro?
  • Truth on Genesis 1
    In this chapter a word "God saw it was good" how we know the heart of god whether he thinks good or not? God didn't said it was good.
  • Wondering on Romans 1:27
    "and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet". Is this a reference to aids ?
  • Jeff on Genesis 1:28
    My question is with the what had done when He had "blessed" them ... To bless is to kneel in adoration. Did God kneel before us ? And what is it that specifically could define Blessed in this context.
  • HARRY ALLISON on Psalms 127
    it is weird how suddenly a people can unite over something as unpredictable as CHIC FILET,911,and aurora ,colorado.worldly catastrophies too.WOULDNT it be nice to see more unity without all the catastrophies that have to bring people together?
  • Simon van Wyk (Snr) on Luke 16:9
    I think Jesus meant that, embrace the riches of this world (unrighteousness mammon) which will enable you into the privilege of tithing, giving to the poor, give generously to those in need, clothe them,buy them food. Using the earthly wealth to serve God so that the seed you have planted on earth (as per the book of Revelation) where we will be judged by the works we did as it is written in the second book of our deeds) Therefore this wealth would have opened an opportunity to us to serve God with it hence the good works and fruits that emanated from the unrighteousness mammom will welcome us into everlasting habitation. See verse 11' it says if you cannot be trusted with the unrighteousness mammon how can you be trusted with the holy incorruptible wealth in heaven?
  • Elder Vann on Colossians 1
    Isaiah 9:6 Tell us his name shall be called wonderful counsellor,The Mighty God everlasting Father prince of peace.God said in (Isaiah 43:19) Behold I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth shall ye not no it? well I guess that being proven.As far as Christ being a man and God at the same time and not! being able to govern the Universe that's a misconception of the human mind. Jesus said to Nicodemus a man who was confused like many here today StJohn 3:12 If I have told you of earthly things and you believe not how shall you believe if I tell you of heavenly things and no man hath ascended up to heaven but the same that came down from heaven even the Son of Man which IS IN HEAVEN!!hello. The Bible dose not say God the Son because The Godhead is not divide because the Son is only the (Word) which is God's prophetic description of himself which he incarnated into flesh. Not another person!! bur the expressed image of his!! person.Hebrews1:3(John 14:9-11) Jesus did not say he that seen me hath seen God the Son he said hath seen the Father (Colossians 2:9 for in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily Christ is not a fallen man like us. We can't limit what he can do; because of what we! cant do or don't understand that's why 1Tomothy 3:16 say's its a mystery. Not every one will understand; that's the book that is called the Revelation of Jesus Christ says blessed is him that readeth and understands.(Philippians 2:19)say who being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal with God; But made himself of no reputation and took upon him the form of a servant. Yes he dose pray to his own spirit Deity!(Ephesians 1:9 says Having made known unto us the Mystery of his will according to the pleasure which he purposed in himself. Hello!!11th verse who worketth all things after the counsel of his own will.(Isaiah 40:10)Behold the Lord God will come with a strong hand and his arm shall rule for him. verse 13 who hath directed the spirit of the Lord; or being his counsellor hath taught him? with whom took he counsel Who instructed him and taught him in the path of Judgment and taught him Knowledge,and taught to him the way of understanding.Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered to me of my Father and no man knoweth the Son but the Father neither knoweth any man the Father save the Son and HE to whom THE SON WILL REVEAL HIM. So there you no nothing of the father but what Jesus has revealed blessed is he that readeth and understands.
  • Cora Withers on Proverbs 14:1
    To be a wise woman is priceless in the society that we live in today. Knowing and seeking what the Lord's will is for my life is what wisdom is all about.Asking for wisdom then using it as I go about my daily activties...Lord where should I shop for the best prices for my household,which way do I go? Even in the smallest areas the smallest detailes of my life I ask the Lord for wisdom to be lead in a plain path.
  • Elder Vann on Colossians 1:15
    According to to all these Bible scriptures and the Hebrew prophets there is no Son of GOD who is not also! GOD(Hebrews1:6-13) because if he is not God manifest in the flesh then he's not the son of God either (1Timothy 3:16)Psalms 100:2 says know ye that the Lord he is God" How many Gods do you think there are? To say that Jesus is separate from God contradicts the words of Jesus himself (StJohn10:30) even the Devil knows there's one God and trembles, to believe there's more than one God is to be a heathen(Deuteronomy6:4 (James2:19) (Isaiah 9:6_(40:3..6(44:6..8)(45:20..23)(Psalms110)Revelation 22:3..5 tells us int the end there is no more curse but the throne of God and of the Lamb is in it that concludes the whole prophetic word of redemption, once the son ship is over! Jesus Christ in his eternal glory is the eternal God.
  • Fornication is fornication, regardless of who is doing it, is it not?
    How quickly we pass judgment when it is not our place, but God's, to do so...
  • Dean on Deuteronomy 7
    I believe the purpose of the command was to remove all temptation from the Hebrews. We know in history that the Hebrews did not follow the command. So, can we ask the question - Could the problems in the Middle East today have been avoided had the Hebrews obeyed God and killed every living thing in Cannan back in the day?
  • Roxanne on Genesis 18:25
    My niece, Jillian, passed away at the tender age of 20 years old seven years ago. At the service I remember praying for her, crying out to go to be merciful and asking him if it be possible that she be with him in heaven. He spoke to me and his response was very clear... Shall not the Judge of all the earth do that which is right? At the time I was not sure exactly where I had read that but later I learned that those were the very words spoken to Abraham. I shall never forget that moment and be amazed at how the Lord answers our prayers if only we will stop and listen.
  • Grant on Revelation 1
    People! Does it matter if he was Black, White, Jewish, or Greek?? NO! It all boils down to is Jesus was GOD manifest in flesh. And all that matters is that he died for you and I. So we could stand befor him on judgement day unspotted, without blimish. If we accept his forgivness, and live out the life God has predestined for us.
  • Magnus on Romans 13
    So, are we not allowed to resist injustice and persecution and undemocratic regimes? Are we not allowed to protest about the fact that £13 trillion are stashed away in off-shore tax-free havens by the world's rich and poweful, while the vast majority of the world's peoples are struggling along as best they can. Am I not allowed to detest what Cameron ond Osbourne and CLegg and Co are doing, while they themselves enjoy lives of arrogant ease and comfort with their millions? And Mitt Romney with his billions built on the back of asset-stripping and exploitation? This chapter seems to be telling us to accept the status quo on earth. I will never ever do that.
  • Trent on Revelation 1
    To set the record straight: Jesus was a Jew. He was of Jewish race, and his skin color like any other Middle Eastern Jew, including today. So, if you're curious what skin color that is, it's probably not black and probably not totally white either. You can travel there today and see for yourself.

    In Revelation, the vision was of the Son of Man having hair that was white as snow. It isn't logical to say that because his hair was white as snow and like wool then the only option is for him to be a black man with white hair. It also says in the same verse 14 that he eyes were as a flame of fire, does that mean he's a dragon too? Of course not, nor does it necessarily mean he's a black jew. And keep in mind Revelation involves heavenly dream-like visions- not necessarily the way things are seen on Earth, such as Jesus' appearance when he was here.
  • Jd on Revelation 1
    ok, in the 14&15 verses lets u know that Jesus Christ is a black man. "White like wool" black people have wooly hair. "Feet like brass as if they burned in an oven" brass is already a brown color so when it is burnt it will turn black, letting u know his feet r a very black. u got to explain the details those details were not mentioned,I wonder y? It is plain & simple crystal clear.
  • David on Exodus 20
    (Shane's comment on 10/26/2010)


    I may be of some help. To take the LORD's name in vain has nothing to do with titles like god or lord. They are titles. To take the LORD's name in vain is in Proverbs 30:9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. We take GOD's name in vain when we claim to be a follower but do contrary to His word. I hope this gets to you and is of some help. Be blessed my friend. :-)
  • Steve on 1 Samuel 20
    No this was no gay relationship. This particular area of scripture is one that the homosexuals use to try to justify their sinful relationships.God would never allow sin of any kind to be used as a justification for doing wrong. It is simply a close relationship between two people. Haven't you ever had a really close friend and you were friends and you loved one another very deeply? I'm thankful tha folks can have true loving relationships in their lives where one holds the other far above themselves.
  • Cbrian on Romans 8:28
    Many times things just dont add up,life stop making sense but according to paul there is a solution for everything to work out for good...LOVE GOD! keeping His commandents that's what Jesus said...''if u love me keep my commandments''
  • Esmirna on Mark 10:32
    i dont get it.... can you explain ?....
  • Doubting Thomas on Luke 2
    Steve's comment says "if the Bible says that something happened then it happened". Then why do the accounts of "Luke" and "Matthew" differ? This testimony is all hearsay and the gospel writers (who are NOT eyewitnesses) can't keep their stories straight! There is NO proof that Nazareth was even a town in the 1st century CE. Jesus being born in Bethlehem in fulfillment of the scriptures is not prophesying! I could go on and on. People, demand better evidence before committing yourself to a untenable belief. As was said by Mark Twain “faith is believing in something that just ain’t so”.
  • Jacques on Matthew 28
    Let us look again at what Jesus says.

    Verse 18: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

    19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Jesus says, "ALL POWER is given unto ME in heaven and in earth. In verse 19 He says "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the NAME" . *Not names* ..

    Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a CHILD is born, unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The MIGHTY GOD, The EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace.

    Jesus says in Revelation 1:8

    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the ALMIGHTY.

    Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the FIRST, and I am the LAST; AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO GOD.

    Jesus says in Revelation 1:11

    Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the FIRST and the LAST:

    1 Timothy 3:16
    3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

    Jesus says in Luke 24:47 And that REPENTANCE and REMISSION OF SINS should be preached in HIS NAME AMONG ALL NATIONS, beginning at Jerusalem.

    48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

    49 And, behold, I SEND THE PROMISE OF MY FATHER UPON YOU: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

    As we go into the book of Acts we find almost immediately the promise being fulfilled. And let me clear this scripture up.

    Ephesians 4:5 ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE baptism,

    6 ONE God and Father of ALL,

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    John 1:14 And the Word was made FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is PREFERRED BEFORE ME: for HE WAS BEFORE ME.

    Now back to Acts 1:5

    Jesus says in Vs. 5 : For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost NOT MANY DAYS HENCE.

    Acts 2:1 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

    2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

    3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

    4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    Read the rest of chapter 2 and how men mocked and said " these men are full of new whine" but Peter stood up with the eleven.

    Acts 2:13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

    14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

    After you read through to vs 37 says the men were pricked in there hearts and asked what shall they do?!

    Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

    Peter tells them what Jesus told him to preach unto ALL nations.

    Luke 24:47 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in HIS NAME among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the NAME of JESUS Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
