Did The Women Go To The Wrong Tomb?

Did the women actually go to the wrong tomb, find it empty, assume Jesus had risen from the dead, and then either hallucinate or make up their encounters with the angels and Jesus himself and tell those stories to the disciples?  Or did the women go to the wrong tomb, find it empty, and tell the disciples that Jesus’ tomb was empty, resulting in the disciples deciding to fabricate the story of Jesus’ resurrection?… Read More Did The Women Go To The Wrong Tomb?

Bible Q&A: Will There Be Mansions or Rooms in God’s House in Heaven?

Why do modern translations have John 14:2 say “In my Father’s house are many ROOMS” or “In My Father’s house are many DWELLING PLACES”? The King James Version says, “In my Father’s house are many mansions.” A mansion is very different from a room. Are the modern translations wrong, or is the King James Version… Read More Bible Q&A: Will There Be Mansions or Rooms in God’s House in Heaven?

Do You Think Things Through?

We’ve all been there.  You’re talking with someone and you can only get maybe half a sentence out before they’re interrupting you and telling you their thoughts about the matter (or changing the subject to something else entirely).  Maybe they continually try to finish your sentence for you and they’re always way off in their guess about what you were about to say.  Maybe they’re the type of person that, no matter what, will always end up dominating the conversation and you always find yourself relegated to standing there and saying nothing while they talk on and on. Frustrating, isn’t it?… Read More Do You Think Things Through?

Zechariah: God Determines the Fate of Nations (The Second Vision)

Just as it takes blacksmiths and carpenters to craft horns out of metal or wood, those same blacksmiths and carpenters have the power to destroy what they had made.  History has shown that nations who destroy other nations often find themselves being destroyed from within.  This is all done according to the will of God.  A few decades before Zechariah, God had warned Nebuchadnezzar that “the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, and bestows it on whom He wishes” (Dan. 4:17).  Nebuchadnezzar would not listen and had to learn that lesson the hard way (Dan. 4:1-37).  Paul would later tell the Athenians that God has “determined (all nations’) appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation” (Acts 17:26).  God certainly does determine the fates of nations.  It would be wise for us to remember that today.                                                                                                       … Read More Zechariah: God Determines the Fate of Nations (The Second Vision)

Let’s set the proper example to non-believers also. Let’s glorify God with what we wear.… Read More “I See The Girls Walk By Dressed In Their Summer Clothes…”

Bible Q&A: Was Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Sinless?

Do Catholics believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, never sinned?  Did Mary live her life without sinning? Roman Catholicism does indeed believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was without sin, both “original” and “personal.”  (“Original” sin refers to the unbiblical notion that mankind inherits the sin of Adam, a teaching which directly contradicts… Read More Bible Q&A: Was Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Sinless?
