Does Genesis 6 & 7 Contradict Themselves?
Here is a common Muslim complaint:
…There is a contradiction found between Genesis 6:19, 22; 7:2-3.
In Genesis 6 it says two of ALL living creatures shall be brought into the Ark, which would include both clean and unclean, and that Noah did all as he was commanded by God. Then in Genesis 7 God changed his mind and commanded that there be seven pair of each animal. So I ask, does "two"
Does "eye for an eye" allow us to take revenge?
One of the questions heard from people today is "Do we take the Bible literally or figuratively?" How we land on this issue has the potential to land us in very different camps. One is biblical while the other is not.
Consider normal conversation from people in today's culture. We use a variety of expressions and methods to portray what we mean. These are known as idioms. Different cultures and eras make use of different idioms.
James 4:4. pt-1
Do we believe all of what God's Word says- heeding every warning and every scripture passage…? Do we really tremble at His Word? Or do we live our lives based on a lie (‘darkness’)? What is a Christian? What does it mean to be Born Again? Do we really love ‘the Truth’? It seems that these terms have a different meaning today…. We must humble ourselves and repent to the point…
What is Faith
The dictionary says…
complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
"this restores one's faith in politicians"
strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
"bereaved people who have shown supreme faith"
The KJV Bible says….
Hebrews 11:1 “Now…
What is Salvation?
Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. To save is to deliver or protect. The word carries the idea of victory, health, or preservation. And this is what I want to talk about in this article.
Sometimes, the Bible uses the words saved or salvation to refer to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul’s deliverance from prison.
Philippians 1:9 “And this I…
Types and Shadows
Many people enjoy reading about Jesus in the New Testament without knowing He’s also revealed throughout the Old Testament through what is known as "types and shadows".
How is your Relationship?
God is your most valuable relationship. Relationships, in the conventional sense, relate to family, friends, partners, and even business. These are common relationships that people will have in their lives, but sometimes, you need one that's above all else.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Trust In The Lord!
I want to share something with you.
Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.”
There’s a lot of things concerning our life and purpose that God wants to reveal to us, but we’re just too distracted with other things… we must stop and start seeking God in everything. He will show us great and mighty things…
Christians and the Mosaic Law
“Galatians 3:13 says Christ died to redeem us from the curse of the law. Deuteronomy 28 and 29 list all the blessings under the Mosaic Covenant. Should believers in the new covenant expect all the blessings listed in the Mosaic Covenant?”
The simple answer to that is no. Galatians is referring to something else. The point that is about to be made is one that is not clearly understood by probably…
Does the Bible contradict the Trinity?
How can Jesus be an equal member of the Trinity when he made statements like "the Father is greater than I"?
Upon This Rock
Matthew 16:18 saidI also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.
The difference between the godly and the ungodly
The affections of the godly are spiritually refined--and their desires are exalted.
The inclinations of the ungodly are corrupt--and their desires are groveling.
Sin has but a tottering standing, and a momentary abode--in the godly.
But sin has fixed its throne, and taken up its eternal residence--in the…

WE STILL LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY HERE IN THE USA, whether one is a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist or other. In light of that, I would like to share some thoughts that I've been thinking about being…
Are atheists just Christian with one less one god?
Are atheists on to something when they say they are the same as Christians, but they just believe in one less god?
