  • 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)

    Shane,

    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!..how?..by 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 ?....
    thanks
  • 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

    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

    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.
  • Bobby on Mark 3
    I hear and understand what being said.But what gets my is why did they change the names in the Bible? ACTS chapter 4 verse 12 neither is there a name giving under Heaven among men whereby we must be save. that name can't be jesus! i've read and researched Maryam was her name not mary.she was a hebrew. we must ask ourselves why would the malak come down and give her a latin or greek name for her child? and we also no the letter J wasn't in the alphet and if they called him Joshua in the old why not call him Joshua in the new? what do we get when we call upon jesus and we do most christain worship him? be it anyone can show unto me in the text where he said to worship him or to call him god. why do we think the Father is the son when he said I come in my Father's name YHWH i've ask a many i which i believe i know the answers just want to hear what other's have to say.
  • HARRY ALLISON on Proverbs 24
    COLORADO TRAGEDY.....DID anybody love this man with the guns .DID he get attention ,unlike what he is getting now?I know a couple people i was almost ready to give up on,...i dont think i will now .JESUS is loving me through my dysfunction....
  • Mike on 3 John 1:2
    I think this is John's greeting. Isn't suffering how our soal grows and is sculpted. If we are unhealthy, are we unworthy, or lack in faith? Can anyone translate this as God promising all of us that we will not be subject to health and financial trials if our faith is great. Faith is strong but we still need perseverance through trials so we are not lacking anything, right?
  • WILLINE WOOTERS on Jeremiah 2
    +-+WE CAN BRING THIS INTODAYS CENTURY. WE HAVE ALLOWED IDLE WORSHIP HERE PEOPLE WHO SAY JESUS IS A GOOD MAN , BUT NOT DIETY , THEY BUILD THEIR PAGAN TEMPLES,AND DO NOT WORSHIP THE ONLY TRUE GOD. THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON ;; IN GOD WE TRUST ;;WHERE ARE YOU AT????????????????
  • HARRY ALLISON on 2 Timothy 4
    PAUL tells it like it is ..EVEN though he was abandoned by many ,he stayed the course.he even warned others of dangers ahead,awesome.DO WE DO THAT ENOUGH TODAY.DO I RISK REJECTION BY TELLING SOMEONE OF AN OBSTACLE IN THERE SURROUNDINGS?.PAUL has "INTEGRITY".
  • Ronald on Philemon 1
    Who is my master?who is my brother?.I am profitable for nothing unless I have the good master molding and making his clay as he wishes and must make the choice to follow him.
  • Wayne Denning on Matthew 24:13
    This is a wake up call! I am very disappointed that "Christians" have tucked their salvation experience in their pocket and gone off to become one of the guys in the world. When Christ promised eternal life he used verbs that were assuming the believer would stay on the path (you know, the straight and narrow one.)

    If you buy a car and throw away the manual, not following the manufacturer's stipulations, you void your warraanty. How much more true is it in the case of our redeemer? I am speaking of the persons who really had a true conversion experience, were sorry for their sins and really meant it when they said they would follow Christ. However, following the conversion, we are still allowed access to the steering wheel. It's called free moral agency. Unfortunately, many with the real thing look left and right and like what they see in this world. We are instructed to be in the world and not of the world. That's not hard to understand. Is it?

    Right now, so many believers have dropped their guard and this includes ministers and are in real danger of missing the reward they were once sure of and of course hell is the "default." Narrow is the way - and few there be that find it. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
  • J S on Genesis 1:1
    Traditional science did not accept the idea of no beginning and no end, since this universe has cycles, and since is based on observable/measurable observations, etc.. If God is transcendental of this universe (or any other we may or may not be aware of) then God has no beginning or end. When considering the infinite, in all aspects (whether it be of this universe, multi-verses, other dimensions, etc.) one could say God is the existence of all and none since these terms are used to describe physical things, God cannot be defined as such.

    Our comprehension is too limited to even consider we understand (what we define as) 'God', and to say otherwise is like asking a caveman what and how a computer works (as an analogy of understanding). Even sci-fi of today has a concept of 'advanced beings' visiting less advanced beings, and to a cave man, could be considered 'Gods', however this is a limited view that has its origins of what God may be. Ultimate awareness, consciousness, infinite in all aspects perhaps. How can God be classed as a single identity? Its a rhetorical question that needs no answer, but leading to a limited conception of a fundamental aspect that we cannot possibly comprehend. Thus faith is born. Faith could be considered a belief in something we cannot possibly understand or comprehend. Science seeks to understand the universe through detectable/replicated fact, and as such is a never ending search for knowledge. If God is infinite in all aspects, not just knowledge, then one could say that science is an attempt to understand God with a never-ending search of infinite truth by using a finite knowledge system.
  • Lorral W. on Amos 2
    Amos 2 makes me wonder, how long will the LORD wait before He really judges America? I don't long for this day, but surely we are no better than Israel.
  • Payton on Matthew 1
    I am only 19 but I am a called minster of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am young and don't have all the knowledge of the Bible but God has shared with me many concerns of the church. We live in a day and time where man has tried to take the place of God and answer certain questions or rasie certain questions. We are finite beings and God is infinite, omnipotent, and omniscient. When you begin to realize Isaiah 55:8-9. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
    declares the Lord.
    9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts" then you will see we can't answer everything and only God can. Stop trying to take the place of God and allow His mysteries to be revealed in due time. Another thing we have begun to take the emphasis off of Christ by arguing about His name. WHY??? Jesus, Yeshua or whatever else is NOT important. Not everyone called Jesus by that name. He was known as Son of David, Good Master and Teacher, Son of Man, Son of David, etc. Whatever you call Him shouldn't be whats important, its the fact on whether you are calling on Him or not. God Bless
  • PENELOPE on Matthew 27
    WHAT EVER HAPPEN TO THE PRISONER THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE RELEASE INSTEAD OF JESUS?BARABASS DIED ON THE CROSS.WHY DIDNT THEY EVER RELEASE A PRISONER OR MAYBE THEY DID(SOME UNKNOWN PERSON NEVER MENTION).
  • Bill english on Revelation 13:4
    The image made with hands...internet...Dragon giving his power to it, to have it's own life. A MORMON will likely become President (look at their beliefs). Put together with world events...Got it? Don't panic...LOOK UP!
  • Jaida on Genesis 9:24
    Genesis 9:22
    HAM the FATHER of cannan saw his fathers nakedness and told his brothers outside.

    It was clearly Ham who did something wrong here, otherwise wouldn't it have said what Cannan did so wrong to have his decedants cursed?
  • Darby T. Fitzcarron on Genesis 17
    Circumcison of the heart? There is no argument to that. The language does not lend to that idea, nor does the idea itself lend to meaning anything metaphoric or figurative. If this isn't one of those "literal" passages, then I am not sure if anyone has the authority, judgment or intellect to interpret anything that they read.
  • Asefa on John 1:51
    John 1: 45-51, This is the wonderful word of GOD, the first special class for special students like Philip and Nathanael, from the teaching both are learnt a lot. Philip was live and served GOD always under OPEN HEAVEN, The special class students should always serve and live under open heaven, are you special student or ordinary one to GOD? The choice is yours, Live and serve like special ones the other do not suit you.
  • John on Matthew 5:13
