The Bible Answers!

Recent update 10/6/2019: I last updated this 4 years ago! Time has flown by! I hoped to keep adding to this but have failed thus far! If you ever have a question I’d be happy to answer it by looking at what the Bible says – the Bible has wisdom on every topic, it is the book of life and has the answers to life… and Jesus ultimately is the answer. What is the evidence? Jesus is the evidence. What is the truth? Jesus is the truth. What is the way? Jesus is the way. He is the life, and his word are the words of life. When Jesus asked his disciples if they would also go away as many others did because they were offended at Jesus… they said “to whom else shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.” It’s true, the answers to life, the wherewithal, everything lies in Jesus Christ. Go to him, start at the cross, and he promises to save you and reveal himself to you. Need wisdom? Ask. Need salvation? Ask. He is faithful and true. God bless 🙂

Statement: I’m not going to be saved because I don’t like what I see people who call themselves Christians doing.

Bible Response: 2 Peter 2:1,2 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. Matthew 23:13 – But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Matthew 7:21-23 – Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Statement: There is no God.

Bible Response: Psalms 14:1-3 – The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Statement: I have not sinned, I have lived a good, clean life, I am a good person. God would be unjust to send me to hell.

Isaiah 64:6 – But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Statement: Who cares, I’m going to do whatever I want.

Bible Response: Romans 14:12 – So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Galatians 6:7 – Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Revelation 20:12 – And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Revelation 20:15 – And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Statement: I’ll make my own way to heaven, there are many ways to heaven anyway.

Bible Response: John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Statement: Who’s to say your God is the real God?

Bible Response: Isaiah 45:5 –  I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me. 1 John 5:20 – This is the true God, and eternal life.

Statement: It’s God’s fault the way the world is, all the pain, sickness, suffering, death.

Bible Response: Genesis 2:16,17 – And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Genesis 3:6 – And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.1 Corinthians 15:21,22 – For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Statement: I am going to heaven because I was baptized once, I go to church at Easter and Christmas time, and I’ve done a lot of good things in my life.

Bible Response: Ephesians 2:8,9 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. John 3:7 – Ye must be born again.

Statement: I am interested in getting saved, but am too busy at the moment, I’ll do it later.

Bible Response: James 4:14 – Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. John 7:6 – Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. Luke 12:20 – But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 2 Corinthians 6:2 – (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) Acts 26:28 – Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian. Acts 17:32 – And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.

  1. I have a question.
    I have been more into my bible study this year than ever before, I feel I was delivered from my sin and though it took me a while I stopped smoking cigarettes, drinking each weekend, and started really reading Gods word. Only thing was covid hit so I am not a member of any church and fear that it may not be possible during these times. i was also raised catholic so the church my parents go to is catholic and i have some doubts about the catholic church.
    I have dishonored my mother and father in the past and they are such amazing parents they forgave me every time. Upon find Jesus i begged my mother and brother for forgiveness for the person i used to be.
    I have been trying to find a bible study or a community to belong to. I found a bible study a few months ago just three of us. And suddenly the teacher had some family issues that she couldnt continue bible study. So i sought out two more in hopes that if one fell through the other would continue. We had our first meeting and on the second meeting the bible study for friday was cancelled due to family emergency. The bible study for saturday was not just cancelled the person completely ghosted me which made me very depressed.
    I worry that God is saying its too late for me. That I am too wretched of a person to be saved, now that I know its the end times now I come crawling to Jesus.
    I dont know what to make of it. In my distress I sinned again.
    then i stopped myself from sinning and decided to turn to the bible and read Jesus’ words and it lead me to matthew 15:30 I worried after reading it for sure I am a weed and not a wheat….i must be thrown away I am not worthy.
    I read before that and after hoping there was something in how to help me know if I am weed or wheat.
    Then I read about dishonoring your mother and father that you will surely die. And I thought of all the times I dishonored them, all the times I thought they were evil, when really they are such good people and never deserved that kind of behavior from me. Even though I am sorry I cannot make up for a life well wasted filled with hate, bitterness, envy and anger.
    My life is not over so I can still say I am sorry, I can still repent, I can still humble myself before them which I have to say I am so sorry.
    I want a new heart in me because i hate my life, my old life. and I thought maybe that that was what was happening. not craving cigarettes, not craving alcohol, diligently studying Gods word. Then I get ghosted by a bible study teacher and I got so depressed. I felt the pieces of the old me want to pop up in my mind and in my heart and I told my mom. I pray that what has happened is just a test and it doesnt mean i am a lost cause. I pray that the teacher did not ghost and that he is okay and that God is taking care of him and watching over him.
    Is God protecting the teacher from teaching me or is He protecting me from being a bad weed that will poison his wheat?
    I am just not sure and I am so sad.

    • Hello Jess, thanks for your comment. All I know is that Jesus said to that woman caught in adultery “Go and sin no more”. All we can do is start from today. Today is the day of salvation. Yes we make a mess of our lives going our own way. Jesus came to rescue those lost sheep gone astray, and truth is, we all were as sheep going astray. He came for the lost sheep.

      Look, we all are hell deserving sinners. If our salvation was based on our performance in any way, than we’d all be going to hell. The catholic church as a system has many doctrines that are unBiblical. They teach and do things which are wrong. But it sounds like you have great parents. Great parents who you have taken for granted. If you think you’ve taken your earthly parents for granted, how much more so your heavenly father if you are saved? In truth, we often treat our heavenly Father’s grace, longsuffering, mercy, love, kindness, patience with utter disdain and contempt.

      Salvation is this. Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. We are all the chiefest of sinners. If you have repented of your sin, that is, if you see you are a hell deserving unworthy lost wicked sinner guilty before God… and if you want to be saved from that sin, and if you turned to Jesus Christ for forgiveness and deliverance from that sin, then he promises in his word to save you. He saves us from the penalty of sin (hell), the power of sin (that’s sin controlling and mastering our lives), and ultimately the presence of sin (in the future when we are set free from this sin cursed body and it’s sinful fleshly nature).

      True belief produces true change. Our change is not based on our flesh suddenly getting better, you know, that same old flesh which wants the cigarettes and alcohol and hatred and bitterness… no, our change is based on the fact that when we believe Jesus gives us his Holy Spirit, he creates a new creature in us, perfect, sinless, born of God. That’s being called born again. If you are born again, you will know it. There will be a new person in you who seeks and desires and loves God and his word. There will be light where there was darkness, knowledge where there was deceit, wisdom where there was foolishness, righteousness where there was constant iniquity. It’s Gods work, you can’t work that up, that happens when you truly believe on him.

      Stop wallowing in your sin and worrying about others and take care of what you can take care of. Get right with who you need to get right with. If you truly get right with God, then the rest of your life God will sort out. It may not fix consequences of past sin, but you can have a clean conscience and a clean heart and a right spirit to go forth with into the rest of your life. Turn your eyes to Jesus Christ, second by second, day by day, month by month, year by year. Faithful is he that calleth you who also will do it. He is the author and finisher of our faith. We can’t start it, and we can’t finish it. It’s Jesus Christ all the way. You know, salvation is a pretty good deal. We swap our sinful rebellious cursed lives for Jesus Christ’s forgiveness, righteousness and life. That’s why we all can only ever say… To him be the glory forever, Amen.

  2. Hi Jess, an allegory that has helped me lots on my journey is The Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan, https://youtu.be/dMtmnv84GxY

    When you are a young Christian “earnestly desire the pure and undefiled Word of God”. Whatever bad examples or incorrect representations other Christians may be, we are all prone to do what the Apostle Paul referred to when he said the words,

    Romans 7:19 KJV — For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

    I pray you find the right fellowship of believers who will encourage you in the Lord and lead you to yearn to follow Jesus all the more passionately yourself.

    Blessings

    • Hello Mike, thank you for the comment. The Sabbath day is the last day of the week, our Saturday, and Sunday is the first day of the new week. Christians met on the first day of the week, and they did so because Christ rose on the first day of the week.

      Sabbath keeping “as the Jews did” is not required of New Testament believers. We are not Jews, and in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek. We have been set free from the bondage of the law, as that law was designed to bring us to saving faith in Christ.

      Additionally, we should keep every day holy and the principle of a day of rest is actually very good for us and with a view to the future rest that awaits the children of God and the nation of Israel.

    • Sure, Acts 20:7 and 1 Corinthians 16:2.

      What is important to know though is that you can have church whatever day you want. Our worship is not defined by where we are and what day we meet.

      Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

      • I appreciate your views, Joseph, however I found this article link on the internet, and copied it below.

        https://lifehopeandtruth.com/bible/10-commandments/sabbath/saturday-sunday/

        The vast majority of mainstream Christians go to church on Sunday (some regularly, others occasionally). Many are shocked to hear about some Christians actually going to church on Saturday. However, the Bible teaches the observance of the seventh-day Sabbath https://lifehopeandtruth.com/bible/10-commandments/sabbath/. So, how did this come to be? History provides some shocking details.

        The Bible makes it clear that Jesus Christ observed the Saturday Sabbath, and His apostles also observed the Sabbath after His death.

        Many defenders of mainstream Christianity try to attribute the origin of keeping Sunday to the apostles. Even so, many Sunday-keeping churches have to admit that there is no scriptural basis for switching to Sunday, nor is there any command by the apostles to not keep the Saturday Sabbath. (For more about this, see “Did the Early Christians Worship on Sunday? https://lifehopeandtruth.com/bible/10-commandments/sabbath/early-christians-sabbath-sunday/”)

        Who changed the Sabbath day?

        Since the Sabbath was not changed in the Bible, who changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday? When did this change occur?

        After the death of the original apostles, new ideas began to be introduced into Christianity. During the second century, Ignatius, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus and Clement of Alexandria attacked Sabbath observance. Tertullian followed in the third century.

        At the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325 Roman Emperor Constantine and the Catholic Church established Sunday as a day of rest. And at the Council of Laodicea around 365, the Catholic Church made it illegal to “Judaize” or be idle from work on the seventh-day Sabbath.

        These changes were accepted by what had become the majority of Christianity, but scattered and persecuted groups of Christians continued to observe the seventh-day Sabbath and other teachings of the early New Testament Church. (Learn more in our free booklets The Sabbath: A Neglected Gift From God https://info.lifehopeandtruth.com/the-sabbath and Where Is the Church Jesus Built? https://info.lifehopeandtruth.com/where-is-the-church-jesus-built)

        How could such a major change come about? What were the underlying reasons for the change from Saturday to Sunday?

        Why was the Sabbath changed to Sunday?

        So what made the mainstream Christian church change the day of rest and worship from Saturday to Sunday so long ago?

        The major causes seem to be a combination of church authority overriding scriptural principles and the influences of sun worship and anti-Semitism.

        The Catholic Church claimed authority to change scriptural principles

        Around A.D. 400, Augustine, a respected Catholic theologian, proclaimed that “the holy doctors of the Church have decreed, that all glory of the Jewish Sabbath is transferred to it [Sunday]. Let us therefore keep the Lord’s Day as the ancients were commanded to do the Sabbath” (quoted by Robert Cox in Sabbath Laws and Sabbath Duties, 1853, p. 284).

        The Catholic Encyclopedia section on “Sunday” mentions St. Caesarius of Arles reinforcing this teaching in the sixth century as well. These men put the changing of the Sabbath in the hands of the doctors of the church (post-apostolic church officials).

        In its section on the “Ten Commandments,” the Catholic Encyclopedia says: “The Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath, or seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third Commandment [we count it as the Fourth] refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord’s Day.”

        Here is another instance in which Sunday worship was put into practice based on the Catholic Church’s claim of authority to change a scriptural principle. Again, mainstream church authorities will assume it is what the apostles wanted.

        Other Catholic writers made it clear that Sunday services and worship are not endorsed by biblical teachings, but only by their church’s authority:

        The Catholic Universe Bulletin said in 1942: “The Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her Founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant, claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter the Seventh Day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.”

        The Catholic Virginian said in 1947: “All of us believe many things in regard to religion that we do not find in the Bible. For example, nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the Apostles ordered that the Sabbath be changed from Saturday to Sunday. We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath Day, that is the 7th day of the week, Saturday. Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the Church outside the Bible.”

        Thomas Aquinas, a very influential theologian, wrote: “In the New Law the observance of the Lord’s day took the place of the observance of the Sabbath, not by virtue of the precept but by the institution of the Church and the custom of Christian people.”

        These examples make it clear that the Sabbath was not changed to Sunday by Jesus Christ or the apostles, but rather by those who believed they had the authority to change biblical principles. Since Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever,” it is hard to understand why a change Christ never authorized was made.

        Origin of Sunday worship: sun worship

        Constantine was the first so-called “Christian” Roman emperor. Though he did stop much of the persecution of Christians as a whole, it seems he did more to introduce sun worship into Christianity than any before him.

        Historian Paul Johnson details some of this influence: “Constantine was almost certainly a Mithraic, and his triumphal arch, built after his ‘conversion’, testifies to the Sun-god, or ‘unconquered sun’. … Constantine never abandoned sun-worship and kept the sun on his coins. He made Sunday into a day of rest, closing the lawcourts and forbidding all work except agricultural labour” (A History of Christianity, 1976, pp. 67-68).

        So, a royal decree to rest and worship on Sunday instead of Saturday was made by the Roman emperor, a sun worshipper. Now, thanks to Constantine, Christians were celebrating on the same day the Mithraics worshipped the sun. This is a blatant example of pagan influence in Christian practices.

        Christians, now holding services on the venerable day of the sun, became so confused in their worship that, during the reign of Emperor Julian, Johnson notes: “The Bishop of Troy told Julian he had always prayed secretly to the sun” (p. 67). Thus Christianity took on a major facet of pagan sun worship that lives on today due to Constantine’s influence: worshipping on Sunday.

        Anti-Semitism and the rejection of the Sabbath

        Surging anti-Semitism in post-apostolic times also played a major role in the change to Sunday. The Council of Laodicea in A.D. 365 decided: “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord’s Day, and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ” (Canon XXIX).

        So, keeping the Sabbath on Saturday was considered “judaizing,” which was considered a great evil.

        Constantine, at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325, was reported by the historian Eusebius as saying, “It appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of this most holy feast [Passover] we should follow the practice of the Jews … . Let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd.”

        Thus, since Christians wanted nothing to do with Jews, they wanted to have a different day for rest and worship: Sunday.

        The Sabbath was never changed from Saturday to Sunday by Jesus Christ or the apostles. Sunday became the day of rest and worship for mainstream Christianity through the Catholic Church claiming authority to overrule Scripture, through pagan influences and through anti-Semitism.

        Those who try to base their Christianity upon the teachings of Christ and the apostles should know the history behind what happened to Saturday and then ask one question based on Mark 7:8 <>: Am I following Christ or the tradition of men?

      • Mike, I was expecting this kind of reply from you, and you did not disappoint. This is what you really came for. You didn’t come to learn, or for Bible answers, you came to assert and spread what you already believe.

        Last time I checked, Jesus Christ got in trouble with the religious crowd for “violating” the Sabbath, please do not misrepresent him and what the Bible clearly teaches on the issue. Man was not made for the Sabbath, if you understood what the Sabbath is all about you would know it, like the rest of the law, is meant to point us to Christ, not to how good we are by supposedly keeping it and detracting from who Jesus Christ is and what he has done for us.

        Yes, you may worship on a Sunday, or Saturday or any day, and churches meet not only on Sundays but also other days and nights of the week. It really does not matter what the day, because it’s just a day at the end of the day.

        But to be clear, if you “observe” the Sabbath, (which no one does anyway like the Jews did), you are not more spiritual or righteous than anyone else, nor does it gain you credit with God. In fact the Bible teaches that once you go into this fake law keeping, you are a debtor to do the whole law, so how are you doing on all the rest?

        You did not come on here to learn, you came on here to market your beliefs, but my blog is not where you set your stall out. Paul wrote in Galatians 2:5 “To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.”

        What was Paul saying in reference to? Because people had come into the church saying you gotta get circumcised. And they were perverting the gospel of Christ and the doctrine of grace. Circumcision, Sabbath keeping blah blah, it’s the same old story. Better read Galatians because that will short circuit this stuff that you’ve come on here to spread.

        The Bible says in Colossians 2:16, 17 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” You can worship the shadow, I’ll worship and glory in Jesus Christ.

        Thank you.

      • Joseph, I came – searching the internet – to your site looking for answers to questions I have- not to assert my beliefs. While going through your site I found “truth” stretched beyond what is written in the KJV Bible. Creative writing? Apparently, you are asserting your own beliefs on this website. I think that is something we both have a tendency to do and promote. In 1John 2:4 it is written: He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. That can be a tough one to accept, but it is there for BOTH mine and your understanding. You quoted only part of the verse in Mark 2:27. The complete verse reads – And He said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Joseph, I am not really sure what Galatians 2:5 means.“To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.” Perhaps we could study together somehow and get to the heart of the matter. Read Exodus 20:9-11. It states the full meaning ‘Holy’. Not every day is holy, but we need to Honor and worship Jesus every day. May the Lord guide us to and in His truth, Mike Little (540) 420 -9233

      • Mike, I ask that you please do not post here anymore. If you don’t like what you read, don’t read then. Simple. My blog is not a place where you try and evangelize myself and my readers with your twisting of the clear teachings of scripture.

        You made an assertion about my “creative writing” and “truth” stretching beyond scripture… but I was the one who quoted verses and you quoted theologian Thomas Aquinas and historian Paul Johnson as part of a link rabbiting drivel about Constantine, the Catholic church and the Council of Nicaea.

        The Bible is clear, it is you who are not. There is no “we”, there is myself and there is you, we are not on the same page or on the same journey in life. You came here seeking to learn, “looking for answers”, and trying to teach who you were looking for answers from? Please, so dishonest.

        1 Peter 1:6 “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” We are meant to be holy all the time, not just on a certain day of the week. If you want to try and keep the sabbath because you’re so holy and spiritual, go ahead and do it. Do what you need to do, just take your contradictions elsewhere. Thanks.

        “The shadow of things to come” are not referring to the 4th commandment as Jesus stated “If you love me keep My commandments.” John 14:15
        We both chose to worship and glory in Jesus Christ.

        Both Bible verses (in Colossians 2 and John 14) can not be contradicting each other. There is a misinterpretation here somewhere in our understanding.

        Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: Isaiah 1:18

        Isaiah 8:20 was also inspired to divinely write:
        To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

        There is more “sabbath days” than the 7th day of worship as written in the commandments =written with the finger of God.

        2 Chronicles 36:21:
        To fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.

        Leviticus 23 contains all the appointed times starting with the most frequent, the weekly Sabbath. Then there are annual days primarily set by the day of the month. The two exceptions are first fruits and weeks. Each of these follow a weekly Sabbath. The first follows the first Sabbath after Passover; the second follows the seventh Sabbath. Many of the annual days are also days of no work and could be considered like a Sabbath. Some are actually called a Sabbath:

        Leviticus 25:8 |And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
        There are more verses mentioning sabbaths other than the weekly Sabbath on the 7th day of the week – and in the 4th commandment telling us to “Remember”

        I’m surprised you did not mention:
        Colossians 2:14
        “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;”

        I wondered what are the handwriting of ordinances that was against us…nailing it to His cross.

        I found the answer in Deuteronomy 31: 24- 26
        24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,
        25 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying,
        26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.
        It is the law of Moses – and it was put in the side [pocket] of the ark. – not inside the ark.
