Genesis describes pairs of each of the animals, but seven of certain animals. These were the ceremonially clean animals which Noah and his family were to eat while on the ark. These animals are domesticated ones. Genesis 7:1,2 says to take two of each animal, except seven of each clean animal. I admit I am […]

Miracle of Science or Perspective of the observer; Did the sun stand still? God is a God of order, yet he performs miracles outside of the natural laws that govern our world.

Could the characters “Cain and Abel” and “Jacob and Esau?” be perhaps symbolic or representative of a species, not actual individuals? Or be real individuals that have symbolic meaning for different species that have existed in the past? Personally, I would hold out that Cain and Abel (and Adam and Eve for that matter) were […]

That is a good question! Because I wrote the book, “Daniel, Prophet to the Nations” I have had to research this question somewhat carefully. The best I can tell, the Bible gives absolutely no direct information as to the lineage of Daniel, or where he was born. For this reason, one is left to speculate […]

I would like to know difference between choice and fate in our Christian walk. Starting from Adam to Judas. This is certainly one of the most significant theological/doctrinal debates in the history of Christianity?indeed in all religions. Given that God is all-knowing and all-powerful, and given that he exists outside of time, it seems logical […]

What was Paul’s purpose for writing Romans? What principles stressed? What are the potential for today? Most commentators believe that with Romans, although the letter is addressed to the church in Rome, it is a general epistle. In other words, the letter was intended all along to be a letter to all the churches. To […]

What are the types of English translations (literal, interpretation, literal+interpretion): Holman (HCSB), King James, Contemporary (CEV), Good News (GNB), God’s Word (GW), The Message (MSG)? We see the MSG translation as interpretation and the KJV as a literal translation. Is that correct? (I am Romanian and my wife is Hungarian) About Bible versions, it is […]

“Could you clarify how ancient races outside the Middle East had the opportunity to learn about God? E.g., what about the 40,000+ year-old aboriginal culture of Australia, Pacific islanders, or the Aztecs?” ? Several inquirers Without the scriptures or the Hebrew prophets (who addressed a number of Middle Eastern nations), the gentiles had the opportunity […]

The book of Jashar is one of the many books cited in the OT. Following is a list (possibly incomplete) of sources cited in the O.T. books. The list omits references to other O.T. books. These works are “extrabiblical”-outside (extra, Latin) the Bible. The Book of the Wars of the Lord-Numbers 21:14The Poets-Numbers 21:27The Book […]

The term literally means “the fallen ones.” Some say they were a race of giants, the offspring of angels and women, to which Goliath and Lahmi belonged. (This sounds too much like Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology for me.) Others say they were the sinful seed of Cain, who later appear as the Canaanites. Scholarship […]

If so, when? How would this relate to creation as described in Genesis? The big bang is one of a number of models cosmologists have for the history of the universe. It happens to be by far the most widely accepted model for the simple reason that it agrees so well with the data scientists […]

Some people have more of an intellectual, abstract mind-set, while others tend toward thinking of life in terms of relationships. Still others tend to be motivated by logical arguments, while […]

This is probably the most controversial question which relates to science and the Bible. In fact, many Bible believers have divided along the lines of this controversy. In addressing this question, one would do well to remember the words of Paul in 2 Timothy 2:23,24; “Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, […]

What one can say with absolute certainty is that there are fossils of dinosaurs found scattered across every continent on the globe. Did dinosaurs ever live? The obvious answer is that they certainly did live at a time in the very distant past. The only conceivable alternative argument is that God created the earth with […]

Many critics of Christianity claim that the Bible we read today has been changed in major ways since the originals were written. For example, some have claimed that there are “hundreds of thousands of errors” in our present Bibles. Some have claimed that the Catholic Church in the fourth and fifth centuries made major revisions […]

Science says the earth is old, but the Bible says the earth is young. Which is correct, and how can I know? The first statement is correct, while the second statement is a question of interpretation. In other words, scientific evidence, from any of at least a dozen independent methods of calculation leads to the […]

Question: What about other religions? Are they true ways to know God? How can I know? Answer: In the end, those who seek after the truth will have to answer this question for themselves, because for each individual, what he or she really means by the question will be different. Many people, of course, say […]

Ultimately, that is the question which this web site attempts to answer, so the first suggestion is to cruise through the site, picking articles to read to help you answer the question.
