Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Bible question – when I was young I read somewhere that God used men’s liver to give it to woman?
    But I can’t remember if it was liver… or kidneys… or what organs or if I remember correctly at all?

    • ANSWER:
      I have never read this in Scripture, maybe you are conjoining two Scriptures together.

      Exodus 29:22 KJV
      Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:

      Genesis 2:22 KJV
      And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

    I am looking for Bible verses to comfort the family of my liver donor any suggestions?
    I received a liver transplant last year and will be writing a second letter to them to update them on my life, but would like to throw in a verse or two to acknowledge their son’s death and give thanks for the wonderful gift they have given me. I do go to church, though it’s fairly new to me and so I am not sure as to what I should use. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I have these few to offer – I hope they help.

      Psalm 30:5 “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; weeping may last for a night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning.”

      Psalm 34:18-19 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

      Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

      Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his loyal people.

      Isaiah 57:18-21 “‘I have seen his ways, but I will heal him; I will lead him and restore comfort to him and to his mourners, creating praise of the lips. Peace, peace to him who isfar and to him who is near,’ says the Lord, ‘and I will heal him.”

      Jeremiah 31:13b …for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

      Matthew 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

      Matthew 11:28 Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

      John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not asthe world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

      John 16:33 These things have I spoken unto you, that in Me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

      Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us–ward.

      Romans 8:28 And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to His purpose.

      2nd Corinthians 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them that are in any affliction, through the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound unto us, even so our comfort also aboundeth through Christ. But whether we be afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or whether we be comforted, it is for your comfort, which worketh in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: and our hope for you is stedfast; knowing that, as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so also are ye of the comfort.

      1st Thessalonians 4:13-14 But we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning them that fall asleep; that ye sorrow not, even as the rest, which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also that are fallen asleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

      2nd Thessalonians 2:16-17 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father which loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.

      Revelations 21:4 He will wipe away all tears from their eyes. There will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain. The old things have disappeared.”

      I pray that these bring you and your donor’s family comfort.

      Peace.

  5. QUESTION:
    Can a Bible Alone believer convince/convert non-Christians of their faith without the bible?
    The bible is for those who already believe.

    Catholics are taught to liver their faith, to walk by faith and not by sight.

    Do your daily actions have an effect on those who do not believe in God or the bible?

    “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words”

    —–St. Francis of Assisi
    .
    .
    .
    PS, yes, Catholics read the bible.

    • ANSWER:
      Here’s another quote of his that I like:

      It is good to read the testimonies of Scripture; it is good to seek the Lord our God in them. As for me, however, I have already made so much of Scripture my own that I have more than enough to meditate on and turn over in my mind. I need no more . .. I know Christ, the poor crucified One.

      -St. Francis of Assisi

      Some people, especially many Protestants, put far too much emphasis on memorizing the letter of scripture, while failing to put its true meaning into practice in their lives.

      Although personally, I probably fail at both of those. =P

  7. QUESTION:
    Christians, atheists – do you agree with this quote about the Bible? Why or why not?
    There are three stages in Bible reading:
    1. the cod liver stage, when you take it like medicine;
    2. the shredded wheat stage, when it’s nourishing but dry;
    3. the peaches and cream stage, when it’s consumed with passion and pleasure.
    [author unknown]

    Don’t forget to mention your religious leanings, and thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Interesting. I avoided stage 1 altogether. I wanted to live life my way. Out of curiosity (and some unexplainable inner drive) I stepped gingerly into stage 2. Didn’t understand most of what I was reading. Then I said, “God if you’re real, help me understand what you’re trying to tell me.” That’s when I finally got it. I don’t affiliate with any religion. I am simply a believer of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  8. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      if ted haggard and any one believes that the human eye is the most complicated or amazing thing in this world they must be blind from the “amazing” eye they see from

  9. QUESTION:
    If Christians follow the bible and are willing to give up their lives for others,…?
    …shouldn’t they all be dead because they gave all their hearts, lungs, livers, kidneys, etc, to those who are dying and on their way to damnation. For the Christian, there is hope in heaven, right? I have nothing against Christians, trust me, it’s just a thought I had.

    • ANSWER:
      It seems like sometimes things don’t make sense right? You know with all the religions in the world we wonder why there are so many questions unanswered. I am talking about important questions that all humankind needs to have answered. You did ask such a question. So why are religious leaders not able to give straight answers? You mentioned that Christians have a hope of going to heaven. well there is a slight problem with that. let me explain.
      I too am a Christian, but not a mainsteam one ( I don’t want to use the words ” pretend Christian, so called christian” etc.. ) I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. You can find us in every country and island of the world preaching from door to door teaching what the bible REALLY teaches It is after all the inspired word of Jehovah God.( should be a Christians manual shouldn’t it? ) Jesus Christ
      when on earth told all of his followers to go and make disciples and teach them to observe all the things Jehovah his father had told ( Matthew 28:19,20 )
      Here are some things the bible teaches:
      God made humans to live forever right here on the earth. Psalm 37:10,11,29; Revelation 21:3,4; Proverbs 2:21; Psalms 104:5; Ecclesiastes 1:4; and many more. Adam would have never had to die if he would have respected God’s right to put down laws. We are imperfect because of Adam. Read Romans 12:5 The good thing is that Jehovah God has made arrangement for us to be able to enjoy the earth forever again by sending His son Jesus to earth to prove that people can serve God out of love and appreciation.Jesus successfully accomplished this. He choose some people from the earth to reign as kings with him in his kingdom ( The one many so called Christians know and pray about without knowing that this kingdom is a real heavenly government which will replace the ones that are existing on earth right now.) It started with the early christians like his disciples ,apostles and others making up the sum of 144000 ( Revelation 7:4 22:5 ) All of the rest of the people will live here on earth under that beautiful rule. The stipulation is to get to know Jehovah and His son by taking in ACCURATE knowledge. and obeying Gods laws. ( not that hard) John 17:3 )
      There is so much in Gods word like there is no such thing as hell fire. People do not have an immortaL soul and God is not a trinity etc..I can not tell you in this venue. find the truth by praying to Jehovah through his son jesus and take care

  10. QUESTION:
    Is Suicide Wrong when a person who dis like his/her life and choose to die for those who want to live survive?
    For example if a person wants to die and he/she dislike their life and wants to give other people a chance to live by donating their heart/lungs/liver/kidney every body part. Is this consider wrong ? In the bible it says “There is no greater love then this, lay down ones friend for ones life”.

    • ANSWER:
      This is not quite the same thing. Laying down one’s life for a friend or sacrificing one’s life for the sake of many is not a form of suicide.
      Furthermore, I am a survivor of suicide and 40 year veteran.
      I must tell you, of the many, many times and ways I have tried to take my own life, it did not work. I am still here, alive and well!
      You may think your life is yours to take-think again! If it is not your time to go, you are ‘not’ going anywhere. You may wish you were dead all the more, once you realize you did not succeed, but give it up!
      You are here for a reason and purpose. until you fulfill your mission here, you’re “stuck”!
      So, get off the pitty pot, suck it up and make the best of the time that you have left!
      I did and I am the happiest I have ever been in my life!
      (A little secret; God had a big hand in it!)
      Go git ‘em! You can do this!

  12. QUESTION:
    Christians who take the bible 100& literally…..?
    You are going to hell. Because God commands you to love him with all of your heart, but technically NOBODY loves with there heart. It is impossible to love with all of your heart, for the heart is just an organ. That is like saying love God with all of your liver, or kidney. All the heart does is pump blood. Love comes from the mind. So if you believe the bible is literal, then you believe that the moon emits its own light (when it doesn’t) & you believe that snakes talked (when it is physically impossible)…Or you believe in idtiotic stories like Noah’s ark.

    On the contrary, if you say the bible is a metaphor, then you are admitting that the bible is nothing but a fable, a fairy tale. If the bible is a metaphor, why can’t God be a metaphor of a manifestation of our thougts, or a group of aliens, possibly the Flying Spaghetti Monster. How accurate can the bible be if it is all metaphors, & how do we know if it is divenly written?

    • ANSWER:
      have you ever seen anyone seriously hurt or die even?
      why does it make your HEART hurt?

  13. QUESTION:
    Alcohol is forbidden in bible why our shops are selling it?
    Prohibition of alcohol in the Bible

    The Bible prohibits the consumption of alcohol in the following verses:

    “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging; and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”
    [Proverbs 20:1]

    “And be not drunk with wine.”
    [Ephesians 5:18]

    3. Alcohol inhibits the inhibitory centre
    The human beings possess an inhibitory centre in their brains. This inhibitory centre prevents the person from doing things that he considers wrong. For instance a person does not normally use abusive language while addressing his parents or elders. If he has to answer the call of nature, his inhibitory centre will prevent him from doing so in public. Therefore he uses the toilet.

    When a person consumes alcohol, the inhibitory centre itself is inhibited. That is precisely the reason that an inebriated person is often found to be indulging in behaviour that is completely uncharacteristic of him. For instance the intoxicated person is found to use abusive and foul language and does not realize his mistake even if he is addressing his parents. Many even urinate in their clothes. Neither do they talk nor walk properly. They even misbehave.

    4. Cases of adultery, rape, incest and AIDS are found more among alcoholics
    According to National Crime Victimization Survey Bureau of Justice (U.S. Department of Justice) in the year 1996 alone everyday on an average 2,713 rapes took place. The statistics tell us that the majority of the rapists, were intoxicated while committing the crime. The same is true in cases of molestation.

    According to statistics, 8% of Americans commit incest i.e. one in every twelve to thirteen persons in America is involved in incest. Almost all the cases of incest are due to intoxication of one or both the persons involved.

    One of the major factors associated with the spread of AIDS, the most dreaded disease, is alcoholism.

    5. Every alcoholic was initially a social drinker
    Many may argue in favour of liquor by calling themselves ‘social drinkers’. They claim that they only have one or two pegs and they have self-control and so never get intoxicated. Investigations reveal that every alcoholic started as a social drinker. Not a single alcoholic or drunkard initially starts drinking with the intention of becoming an alcoholic or a drunkard. No social drinker can say that I have been having alcohol for several years and that I have so much self-control that I have never been intoxicated even a single time.

    6. If a person is intoxicated just once and commits something shameful, it will remain with him for a lifetime.
    Suppose a ‘social drinker’ loses his self-control just once. In a state of intoxication he commits rape or incest. Even if the act is later regretted, a normal human being is likely to carry the guilt throughout his life. Both the perpetrator and the victim are irreparably and irreversibly damaged.

    Diseases associated with alcoholism
    There are several scientific reasons for the prohibition of consumption of intoxicants i.e. alcohol. The maximum number of deaths in the world related to any one particular cause is due to the consumption of alcohol. Millions of people die every year only because of intake of alcohol. I need not go into the details of all the ill-effects of alcohol since most of them are commonly known. Below is a simple list of few of the alcohol related illnesses:

    Cirrhosis of Liver is the most well known alcohol associated disease.

    Others are Cancer of Oesophagus, Cancer of Head and Neck, Cancer of Liver (Hepatoma), Cancer of Bowel, etc.

    Oesophagitis, Gastritis, Pancreatitis and Hepatitis are linked with alcohol consumption.

    Cardiomyopathy, Hypertension, Coronary Artherosclerosis, Angina and Heart Attacks are linked with heavy alcohol intakes.

    Strokes, Apoplexy, Fits and different types of Paralysis are linked with alcohol intake.

    Peripheral Neuropathy, Cortical Atrophy, Cerebellar Atrophy are well-known syndromes caused by alcohol consumption.

    Wernicke – Korsakoff syndrome with amnesia of recent events, confabulations and retainment of memory to old events with different types of paralysis are mainly due to thiamine deficiency due to excessive alcohol intake.

    Beriberi and other deficiencies are not uncommon among alcoholics. Even Pellagra occurs in alcoholics.

    Delerium Tremens is a serious complication that may occur during recurrent infection of alcoholics or post operatively. It also occurs during abstention as a sign of withdrawal effect. It is quite serious and may cause death even if treated in well equipped centres.

    Numerous Endocrine Disorders have been associated with alcoholism ranging from Myxodema to Hyperthyroidism and Florid Cushing Syndrome.

    Hematological ill effects are long and variable. Folic acid deficiency, however, is the most common manifestation of alcoholic abuse resulting in Macrocytic Anemia. Zeive’s syndrome is a triad of Hemolytic Anemia

    • ANSWER:
      Because not everyone is dumb enough to follow a bunch of Bronze Age rules.

      Eating shellfish is forbidden in the bible, so is wearing clothing of mixed fabrics. Women are supposed to sacrifice a dove or something after each menstrual cycle – there’s a whole load of bollox in the bible… you either follow it completely or not at all.

      … and wasn’t jesus supposed to have turned water into wine? Wasn’t that a teensey bit naughty if his Daddy had said alcohol was a no-no?

  14. QUESTION:
    A Good Bible Verse For My Situation?
    My grandma and Grandpa both have fought a bunch of different types of cancer…my grandma had a stroke while being cured for breast cancer… Beat the cancer but now needs a cane, and recently found out she has bone and liver cancer… we don’t think she will make it too much longer and i would like to get a tattoo on my arm ( if my mom will let me) from something in the bible that represents strength and over coming obstacles. Not only this one, but all other problems i’ve gone through and the problems to come. i want to look and it and feel reassured. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      An eagle.
      Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

      God Bless you and your family. I’m sorry you are all going through this. Jesus will carry you through and one day we will be reunited with the ones we’ve lost. :)

  15. QUESTION:
    Things people in the bible could NOT have known thousands of years ago!?
    In Genesis 17:12, God specifically directed Abraham to circumcise newborn males on the eighth day. Why the eighth day? In 1935, professor H. Dam proposed the name “vitamin K” for the factor in foods that helped prevent hemorrhaging in baby chicks. We now know vitamin K is responsible for the production (by the liver) of the element known as prothrombin. If vitamin K is deficient, there will be a prothrombin deficiency and hemorrhaging may occur. Oddly, it is only on the fifth through the seventh days of the newborn male’s life that vitamin K (produced by bacteria in the intestinal tract) is present in adequate quantities. Vitamin K, coupled with prothrombin, causes blood coagulation, which is important in any surgical procedure. Holt and McIntosh, in their classic work, Holt Pediatrics, observed that a newborn infant has “peculiar susceptibility to bleeding between the second and fifth days of life…. Hemorrhages at this time, though often inconsequential, are sometimes extensive; they may produce serious damage to internal organs, especially to the brain, and cause death from shock and exsanguination” (1953, pp. 125-126). Obviously, then, if vitamin K is not produced in sufficient quantities until days five through seven, it would be wise to postpone any surgery until some time after that. But why did God specify day eight?

    On the eighth day, the amount of prothrombin present actually is elevated above one-hundred percent of normal—and is the only day in the male’s life in which this will be the case under normal conditions. If surgery is to be performed, day eight is the perfect day to do it. Vitamin K and prothrombin levels are at their peak. The chart below, patterned after one published by S.I. McMillen, M.D., in his book, None of These Diseases, portrays this in graphic form.

    http://www.apologeticspress.org/image/rr/prothrom.jpg

    Dr. McMillen observed:

    We should commend the many hundreds of workers who labored at great expense over a number of years to discover that the safest day to perform circumcision is the eighth. Yet, as we congratulate medical science for this recent finding, we can almost hear the leaves of the Bible rustling. They would like to remind us that four thousand years ago, when God initiated circumcision with Abraham….

    Abraham did not pick the eighth day after many centuries of trial-and-error experiments. Neither he nor any of his company from the ancient city of Ur in the Chaldees ever had been circumcised. It was a day picked by the Creator of vitamin K (1984, p. 93).

    Moses’ information, as recorded in Genesis 17:12, not only was scientifically accurate, but was years ahead of its time. How did Moses have access to such information?
    @ smirk, I always enjoy your stereotypical answers, but did you ever even finish reading the question? If you didn’t, I’ll place a key part here:


    Abraham did not pick the eighth day after many centuries of trial-and-error experiments. NEITHER HE, NOR ANY OF HIS COMPANY from the ancient city of Ur in the Chaldees EVER had been circumcised. It was a day picked by the Creator of vitamin K”…

    • ANSWER:
      It was never necessary for the Jews to understand these things. Only to obey them.

      Likewise the knowledge that the earth was round or a “circle” at Isaiah 40:22. Or at Job 26:7 that the earth “hung upon nothing”. This was about 2,000 years before Galileo invented the telescope or mathematics were formed to judge the circumference of the earth.

      Popular opinion was the land was flat and had to be braced upon something. Pillars, turtles, chariots, or Atlas’ shoulders.

      The dietary and sanitary laws given to Israelites show knowledge of germs and bacteria no humans had until the beginning of the 20th century. They did not have to know, just obey to live.

      This as well as animals having a “cud’ to re-chewew food and many other things my hurting fingers will not allow me to type, show the Bible has much knowledge only now are we able to appreciate.

  17. QUESTION:
    They were wrong about most things 3000 years ago, why do you think they were right when they wrote the bible?
    Pretty much everything they once believed about the world, health and anatomy, animals, the solar system, etc., etc, at the time the bible was written, turned about to be complete wrong. some of it laughably so by modern understanding.
    So why do your think the bible was any different. When people said “the world was created by a god in six days, and he put all the plants and animals there”, why do you take any more seriously than when they said “the body is filled with 4 humors: black bile and yellow bile from the liver, phlegm, and blood. All diseases and disabilities resulted from an excess or deficit of one of these four humors” – which is something else everyone believed back then
    I love it when christians suddenly start demand thing like proof and sources over minor details. If only they would apply such standards to their own bible….
    (the 3000 date is not really relevant, as it was compiled over a long period of time between the jewish old testament and the new, but my argument still hold true for most things pre 16th century)

    • ANSWER:
      You are quite right. Bible believers do not apply standards of evidence to the Bible. Instead, they distort things to make it appear that the Bible is trustworthy. The fact is that the Bible reflects the mythological beliefs of the time it was written, and the Bible believers ignore what it says or say it is just allegory.

      For example.

      According to Ecclesiastes 1:5 the sun actually goes around the earth–as, of course, it must, since, according to Ps 93:1, Ps 96:10, and 1 Chr 16:30, the earth does not move. And the earth cannot move because, according to 1 Samuel 2:8 and Ps 75:3, it is placed on pillars. And because it is placed on pillars, it has an underside and an upper side, as confirmed by Isaiah 40:22 which indicates that the earth is a flat disk.

      (If earth were a sphere it would not have an under side and an upper side. The Hebrew word translated as “circle” in Isaiah 40:22 is chuwg, which means “circle” not “sphere.” Strong’s Concordance: “circle”…”describe a circle.” Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament: “Circle…the earth conceived as a disc, Is 40:22.” Hebrew-Aramaic and English Lexicon of the Old Testament: “draw round, make a circle.” If a sphere were meant, the Hebrew word duwr would have been used.)

      Since the biblical earth is flat, it has an underside and under the earth is the abyss, which is referred to several times in the Bible. That is also what is being referred to in Job 26:7 when it says that the earth hangs over nothing. Job 26:7 implies that the earth has an upper side and an underside, which the actual earth does not have. (The original Hebrew word translated as “upon” in that passage in the KJV also means “over.”) The actual sphere of the earth in space is not “suspended’ or “hanging” “over” or “upon” nothing. It is orbiting the sun at 66,700 miles per hour.

      There are several other verses in the Bible indicating the earth is flat. Nebuchadnezzar’s vision in Dan 4:10-11 clearly indicates the earth is flat (if it were not flat the tree could not be seen from all the earth), and Dan 2:28 states that the visions of Nebuchadnezzar are from God. If the biblical god says the biblical earth is flat, it must be flat.

      The original Hebrew word translated as firmament is raqiya. That is a noun derived from the Hebrew word raqa, which is a verb meaning “to beat out.” That term is used in the bible in reference to beating out metal into plates or expanses of the metal (as in Exodus 39:3). So raqiya, as a noun, would literally mean “that which is beaten out.”

      The idea is that the firmament, or sky, is a solid, beaten out expanse or vault set on the rim of the flat disk of the earth. The firmament holds back the waters that are above the firmament, as stated in Genesis. If the firmament were not solid, it could not hold back the waters.

      This understanding is confirmed in Job 37:18, which states:

      “Can you beat out the vault of the skies as he does,
      hard as a mirror of cast metal?” (New English Bible. .)

      There, the Hebrew word translated as “beat out” (or “spread out” in other versions) is, as noted above, raqa.

      The idea that the vault of heaven is resting on the rim of the flat disk of the earth is implied in verses such as Deut 4:32 (the “ends of heaven” would be the base of the vault of heaven where it rests on the rim of the disk of the earth):

      “Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created man on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of?”

      Also, the stars in the biblical cosmos are just lights set in the firmament. As mere lights in the sky, they will fall to the earth in the Last Days (Matt 24:29), something that is ridiculous considering the actual stars are other suns and many times larger than the earth.

      Some might say that the language of such things is just poetic allusion. If that is so, how does one determine what is allusion and what is not? Even if it is poetry, that does not mean that it cannot reflect what the writers of the Bible actually believed. And if the Bible is the word of god and god does not lie, would he make statements that are not factual even if they are in the form of poetry?

      That this is the correct view of the biblical cosmos is shown by the fact that it describes a structure with parts that are fully consistent with each other. It is not a mish-mash of parts that do not structurally relate to each other. Even though it was constructed from numerous different passages in the Bible, that structural consistency indicates that it accurately represents the cosmos as conceived by the ancient Hebrews and as its writers incorporated that view in the Bible. Therefore, it accurately represents the biblical cosmos even though that cosmos is nothing like the cosmos that we know.

      So, if one fully accepts the modern, present-day view of the cosmos as factual, then one would have to conclude that the Bible is not the word of god.

      Bible believers also ignore or misrepresent, or are just plain ignorant of, the facts about other facets of the Bible. For example:

      “there are over 300 Old Testament prophecies that directly talk about Jesus, including WHEN he would be born, WHERE he would be born, HOW he would be born (of a virgin),”

    Why do religious people hold onto these beliefs when they are shown over and over to be false?

    Why do religious people continue to believe the bible is the word of god when it has been shown that a majority of the bible is falsified and made up? (Read Misquoting Jesus)

    Over the last two thousand years, Christianity has gone from being real and tangible to obscure, internalized and translucent. What’s next for religion? How can you base your whole life’s belief system on something so obscure?

    Hey, I’m just being curious here.

    • ANSWER:
      Because the one skill that any religious person quickly learns is rationalization. It is the only way (besides burying your head in the sand) that a person could maintain such beliefs.

      Example: I was on an evolution discussion board. To be more specific, it was a Creationist evolution-bashing board. Very heated. One of the people there went to further steps to justify his beliefs than I have ever seen.

      One of the keys to evolution is genetic mutation. Take away that, and evolution doesn’t work. We have an abundance of evidence for genetic mutation, from genetic disorders to cancer.

      This guy was making an argument that CANCER IS CAUSED BY VITAMIN C DEFICIENCY. Genetic mutation couldn’t be the reason, you see, because that might give evidence for evolution.

  19. QUESTION:
    In the Bible, did God like animal sacrifices cause they smell nice?
    Is that what is meant by “sweet savour”? And how come all the fat was supposed to be God’s? Why did God prefer fat?

    “And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, and the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour. All the fat is the Lord’s.” Leviticus 3:15

    Any church people want to answer this one? Why did God want burnt sacrifices all the time? Did he explain his reasons other than “sweet savour”?

    Leviticus 3
    3:1 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offer it of the herd; whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD.
    3:2 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
    3:3 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,
    3:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away.
    3:5 And Aaron’s sons shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt sacrifice, which is upon the wood that is on the fire: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD

  21. QUESTION:
    If the ‘bible’ is supposed to be true, then how come no contemporaneous writer mentions the events of?
    Matthew 27:52:53?
    As my Jewish friends say, “This ain’t chopped liver.”
    Here’s the text: 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

    So, dead people got up from their graves and wandered about Jerusalem and ‘appeared to many’ and no other writer of ancient times mentions this. Talk about an extraordinary claim lacking even the most ordinary evidence…

    • ANSWER:
      Not only does no contemporaneous writer mention those zombies, none of the approximately 30 local historians of the first century mentioned Jesus.

      There’s no reliable evidence that Jesus even existed. The story of Jesus is just a myth bolted together out of previous myths and stories from the Old Testament — created in the 40′s and 50′s by Paul of Tarsus (who exhibited evidence of epilepsy and had delusions of Christ talking to him), the other apostles, the unknown authors of the gospels in the 70′s or later, and many other people. The reliable evidence for this is overwhelming.

      Paul and the other epistle writers don’t know any biographical details of Jesus’ life, or even the time of his earthly existence. They don’t refer to Bethlehem, Nazareth, Galilee, Calvary or Golgotha — or any pilgrimages to what should have been holy sites of Jesus’ life. They also don’t mention any miracles that Jesus was supposed to have worked, his virgin birth, his trial, the empty tomb, his moral teachings, his disciples, or even when he existed. To them Jesus was largely a sky-god, who existed in the spiritual past.

      If Jesus had actually existed, Paul would have written about his life, disciples, and teachings. Paul did not write about his any of this.

      If Jesus had actually existed, the gospels would have been written in first person format. Instead, they were written in third person format like a Harry Potter story, with Matthew and Luke extensively plagiarizing from Mark.

      Therefore Jesus didn’t exist.

  23. QUESTION:
    Should I leave the Adventist Church? Prefer Adventist Answer but Open to Anyone?
    Hey everyone! I’m currently an Adventist and have been so since birth. I’ve believed my entire life that the Adventist have the most accurate interpretation of bible.

    Recently I decided to research more on Ellen G. White (one of the main founders of our church who’s writings are considered God Inspired to most people in the church, and who is considered an end time prophetess by some) just for the heck of it and was startled by what I had found.

    I found that she was accused of Plagiarism in some of her works, including, “The Great Controversy” and was accused of making testimonies or claims that was “God Inspired’ that didn’t come true (e.g False Prophecy).

    I didn’t believe it of course, because people come under criticism all the time, especially God’s people. But then I found more…

    I found a quote in which White said that masterbation causes “affection of the liver and lungs, neuralgia, rheumatism, affection of the spine, diseased kidneys, and cancerous humors”(told it came from Ellen G. White (1870). Solemn Appeal)

    I found that claim to be absurd and was hoping that Ellen White never said such a thing. While searching for answers, I found an online posting of a book entitled “Life of Mrs. E.G. White — Her Claims Refuted” by Dudley M. Canright (who worked with Ellen White for years and had later left the Adventist Church).

    By the way, the link for the online version is here : http://members.tripod.com/~Help_for_SDAs/LifeofEGWHerClaimsRefutedCanright.html

    While reading the online version on his book. Canright had established several examples in which Ellen White had plagiarized, and he supplied quotes showing the comparison. Also he established a long list of arguments based on quotes from her own books in showing that she was wrong on a lot issues and had given several prophecies that didn’t come to pass in her time(not including the 1844 prediction that Christ will return).

    I hope that there are any Adventist that can effectively counter every reasonable argument that D.M Canright made against Ellen White but the evidence(in which he showed through quotes of some of her early writings) against her being ‘inspired by god’ is quite strong.

    Right now I’m in a dilemma, as an Adventist, I personally believe that only the teachings of the bible are sufficient in understanding God and getting to know him and I know other Adventist in my church who feel the same way(I know alot of nice godly Adventist who mean the best, so no personal bashing please). But I’m not sure if I can ignore the fact that the person who founded our church might have been a fraud (no matter how well intentions might have been or how inspring or helpful their books are). Also, I’ve noticed that a lot of her teachings are quoted in church study lessons and in some sermons so I can’t sit in church an ignore that.

    Should I leave the Adventist Church? Thanks!

    Thanks for the Questions so far, for those who might be curious, I do not read the Clear Word Bible, as do most adventist in my church and I personally still believe that we should at least remember the Sabbath day and rest and keep it holy (I believe the definition of ‘rest’ and keeping it ‘holy’ should be left for people individually, through study of the bible to define, not the church)
    Again, thanks for all of your answers/adivce so far, I respect and appreciate everyone’s opinion and it is greatly appreciated.

    Just to answer a question that was asked, I really meant that I’ve grown up in the Adventist Church and in an Adventist home since birth, but I was officially baptized when i was 10.

    • ANSWER:
      Hard decision. Leaving a church is like leaving a family, but in your case it’s just not because your upset with the song selection or the way the leadership spends money. You’re questioning the basic foundations and principles of your church. Is it good to question? Yes. In fact, I think that the research like you’ve been doing is how all of us grow closer to ‘Truth.’ Keep searching. Keep looking at the Bible as your source of Truth and God will guide you. At my first reading of your question, I notice that you found inconsistencies with what your faith has said in the past. In the Bible there are many places where God / Jesus talks about false prophets as being those who claim to know God’s direction, but the facts and outcomes don’t line up. It says to not listen to them because there is the risk of getting caught going in a direction or belief that God wouldn’t want you to. Hope that helps.

  24. QUESTION:
    Christians – Was the vinegar given to Jesus on the cross mingled with gall or myrrh?
    Matthew 27:34 and Mark 15:23

    Gall (Matthew 27:34) – “they gave Him wine to drink mingled with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.”
    Myrrh (Mark 15:23) – “And they tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.”

    Gall is bile secreted by the liver. Biblically, it is used to denote bitterness of spirit (Acts 8:23; Lam. 3:19). Myrrh is an aromatic gum that grows in Arabia, Abyssinia, and India. It was used to sweeten the smell and taste of various foods. It was also used in embalming (John 19:39).

    According to the Bible there were two times that Jesus was offered the vinegar. “The first time, the wine drugged with bitter narcotics, the effect of which would be to stupefy him, he did not receive. Afterward, some drink free from drugs was given him, which he accepted.” In other words, they were of two different times and different things were offered.

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, Gall was a general term used for anything bitter. It was also used to mean poison by the hebrews. of course, yes it’s secreted by our liver but that’s the word they used to denote anything bitter tasting.

  25. QUESTION:
    What dose reading this do for you?
    Every one know that in the Bible God says do not eat scavengers,He also says all animals are good to be eaten. There it is He says all animals! But wait what the text really says, all animals for which God created to be eaten are now good to be consumed. I didn’t know there were animals God created not to be consumed? Yes those that are scavengers and placed here to clean the earth, they are good animals but not good to be eaten. I am guilty my self i can’t resist those lil creatures that clean the ocean floor of waist and disease. But worst than those are the land creatures that are here to clean up things here were we live today. You wouldn’t go out and eat a vulture after knowing it spent its entire life eating the dead. Then why would you eat swine knowing they eat the trash from this earth to. God made them so that they wont be hurt by digesting waist and disease. They pick it up off the earth so we don’t get sick, storing it in there flesh were its meant to stay. People blame God for sickness and disease but were the ones who go against His health laws. He created these flesh bodies and knows whats best for them. To break a health law is not a sin to death, but instead a sin to health God wont punish people for being ignorant and disobeying them. We have already have done plenty of harm to our selves on our own part. People blame God for sickness and disease but were the ones who go against His health laws. He created these flesh bodies and knows whats best for them. To break a health law is not a sin to death, but instead a sin to health God wont punish people for being ignorant and disobeying them. We have already have done plenty of harm to our selves on our own part.
    The pig can be called nature’s vacuum cleaner. It is not affected by many toxins that would kill other animals in a heartbeat, and those toxins that do kill them would have to be consumed in vast quantities to result in the death of the animal.The mechanism which allows the animal this bizarre and enviable resistance to poisons is the way its body grows and produces flesh and fat, and stores things in that fat.Pigs put on flesh at several times the rate that other human-consumed animals do. The body of the pig forces any toxins the pig consumes into the flesh, and stores and locks them there. When we eat the meat of a pig, we take in all the toxins that are stored in the fat of the pig. There was an instance in which a farmer ordered the a large quantity of cow liver to feed to his animals. The company providing the liver accidentally sent the farmer the pig liver instead. All the animals that ate the pig liver died quickly and painfully of a colorful variety of things. Some developed cancer within a few days. Some suffered digestive tract disturbances so great that they bled to death.The consumption of pork is forbidden in various religions world-wide. For a while, we did not understand why the animals were considered “unclean”, but, now, modern science is showing us just how unclean the pigs truly are.Pigs are often infested with trichina, parasitic roundworms. These roundworms are often passed on to humans when pork is not properly cooked. Trichina are found in the highest concentrations amongst animals in pigs and similar animals. “Well,” you might say. “The companies add antibiotics to the feed of the pigs. Trichina is no problem for me and pigs in modern society.”Note the way pigs store toxins; that is, as fat or loose muscle tissue. The antibiotics and hormones, essentially, are toxins, and the pigs’ bodies recognize them as such. The pollutants are stored in the fat or muscle
    tissue, and are not cooked out during processing or filtered out when you eat them. Contrary, they stay in the meat for extended periods of time (as they were designed to stay in the feed for a long time; otherwise, the pork industry might have an unexpected outbreak of trichina or similar parasites.), and accumulate in your body.
    Leviticus 11:2-4, 7-8″These are the creatures that you may eat from among all the animals that are upon the land. Everything that possesses a split hoof, which is fully cloven, and that brings up its cud — this you may eat. But this is what you shall not eat from what brings up its cud or possesses split hooves — the camel, because it brings up its cud but does not possess split hooves…and the pig, because it has split hooves that are completely cloven, but it does not bring up its cud — it is impure to you and from its flesh you may not eat.
    “Isaiah 65:4 who sit among the graves and spend their nights keeping secret vigil; who eat the flesh of pigs, and whose pots hold broth of unclean meat;
    Isaiah 66:17 “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things–they will meet their end together,” declares the LORD.”

    • ANSWER:
      What it does for me is hurt my eyes because it’s just one long, rambling wall of text.

      I happen to like pig-meat, and I’m not dead nor ill so tough. As a side note, all plants we consume are grown using either chemical fertilisers (yummy) or organic fertiliser (that’s faeces to you). In other words, pigs eat s**t and plants eat s**t, we all eats lots of both and what you’re waffling on about doesn’t seem to happen. And even if it’s all accurate (sources?) it’s a risk I’m willing to take for yummy dead animal fun times. Deal with it.

  28. QUESTION:
    why this anymal meat is bad for your helth,every one eat it ?
    WHY IS PORK FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM?

    Bob: Tell me why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the
    words Halaal and Haraam; what do they mean?

    Yunus: That which is permissible is termed Halaal and that which
    is not permissible is termed Haraam and it is the Quran which
    draws the distinction between the two.

    Bob: Can you give me an example?

    Yunus: Yes, Islam has prohibited blood of any type. You will agree
    that a chemical analysis of blood shows that it contains an
    abundance
    of uric acid, a chemical substance which can be injurious to human
    health.

    Bob: You’re right about the toxic nature of uric acid, in the
    humanbeing it is excreted as a waste product and in fact we are
    told that 98% of the body’s uric acid is extracted from the blood
    by the kidneys and removed through urination.

    Yunus: Now I think that you’ll appreciate the special prescribed
    method of animal slaughter in Islam.

    Bob: What do you mean?

    Yunus: You see, the wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name
    of the Almighty, makes an incision through the jugular veins,
    leaving all other veins and organs intact.

    Bob: I see, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of
    blood from the! body, rather than an injury to any vital organ.

    Yunus: Yes, were the organs, example the heart, the liver, or the
    brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and
    its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate
    the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated
    and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous; only
    today did our dietitians realize such a thing.

    Bob: Again, while on the topic of food; Why do Muslims condemn the
    eating of pork or ham or any foods related to pigs or swine.

    Yunus: Actually, apart from the Quran prohibiting the consumption
    of pork bacon (pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus
    chapter 11,verse 8, regarding swine it says,

    “of their flesh (of the swine another name for pig)shall you not
    eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are ” unclean
    to you.”

    Further, did you know that a pig cannot be slaughtered at the neck
    for it does not have a neck; that is according to its natural
    anatomy. A Muslim reasons that if the pig was to be slaughtered
    and fit for human consumption the Creator would have provided it
    with a neck.

    “Nonetheless, all that aside, I am sure you are well informed
    about the harmful effects of the consumption of pork, in any form,
    be it pork chops, ham, bacon.

    Bob: The medical science finds that there is a risk for various
    diseases as the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and
    potential diseases.

    Yunus: Yes, even apart from that, as we talked about uric acid
    content in the blood, it is important to note that the pig’s
    biochemistry excretes only 2% of its total uric acid content, the
    remaining 98% remains as an integral part of the body.

    Note: Islam forbids not only pork but meat of all those animals
    who eat their own or some one else’s body waste; the most commonly
    known animal in this category is pig or swine whose meat is
    commonly known as pork.

    • ANSWER:
      pork is forbidden simply because the old texts of the bible said so, that its not good to eat anything with a cloven hoof. oddly it seems sheep and goats are ok though, geese and chickens always eat their own waste, ive never met a pig that did. and ive raised both, lots of people eat meat. and mostly the disease they feared in pork is a worm that gets in the muscles and that is killed by cooking. so just forget your judgmental bull crap

    • ANSWER:
      I know this is hard. He may feel like you seeing him at his weakest will make you hurt. Maybe he doesn’t want you to hurt. I know it doesn’t make sense, but sometimes people do weird things. You both are Christian so you should be able to talk things out. Maybe he needs to know that you want to be there for him…

  31. QUESTION:
    how can I recover from schizophrenia? HELP!?
    It’s been 11 years now that I have it. Voices, blah bla blah. I go off the meds all the time because I can’t stand being on medication and that’s OK for me. I have read about orthomolecular medicine, but that is likely to destroy my liver. I’ve been praying too and reading the bible 10000000000 times, but nothing helps! What can I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Battling such a serious illness isn’t easy and I applaud you for continuing to look for treatments. Many new ones are in the ppeline and, in the coming months we should see some advances.

      The cause of schizophrenia is largely unknown, and currently there is no way to prevent or cure the disorder. The focus of treatment is often to control symptoms.

      Patients are usually treated at home. However, they can be treated in a hospital if they experience acute symptoms, such as severe delusions or hallucinations, serious suicidal thoughts, an inability to care for themselves or severe substance abuse problems.

      The most common treatment for schizophrenia is antipsychotic medication. Patients with schizophrenia sometimes stop taking medications because they feel better, forget to take them or take them sporadically because they think regular use is not important. Following the physician’s directions for medications is important for adequate disease treatment.

      There’s quite a bit more information on schizophrenia at the site below and I hope you’ll read it through as I do think it might help : )

  33. QUESTION:
    Biblically Speaking, Are Blood Transfusions Wrong?
    Hey!

    This subject is a hard one to talk about. After all, we’re talking about your life here. That’s a very scary subject.

    But, what about the Bible? What does it say about blood?

    “The holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to you, except these necessary things, to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled [leaving the blood in the meat] and from fornication.” (Acts 15:28, 29; 21:25)

    So, abstaining from blood was set out as a commandment, not only for the Jews, but also to Christians, after Christ’ death. What does abstaining from something mean? Does it simply mean not to drink blood, as many “pagans” did? Well, think of this: If your doctor said you had a serious liver condition, and that you now must abstain from alcohol because of it, do you think that doctor would approve if you went home and, instead of drinking alcohol, hooked yourself to an IV filled with alcohol and pumped it straight into your bloodstream? Would that be abstaining, as the doctor told you to do? No.

    So, abstaining from blood, as the Bible says, is not simply refraining from drinking it out of a glass, but keeping blood out of your body altogether.

    What do YOU think of these scriptures??? What is YOUR opinion about blood transfusions? What do you believe GOD thinks about blood transfusions? Do you think HE approves?

    Let’s have a nice discussion, please, with as little sarcastic and cruel remarks as possible, please and thank you! Have a great day! And I can’t wait to read your answers on this subject!

    Luv ya,
    Tashi :)

    • ANSWER:
      The life we have on this earth is NOT the REAL life.
      We are living in Satan’s system. If we lose our life in this system, God can restore it. Satan can not.
      So it is imperative that we obey God. He said to ABSTAIN from blood. Even if it costs us our life.
      Acts 15; 20 but to write them to abstain from things polluted by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood.

      Also the pagan religions of those times used blood in their style or worship to their pagan gods and warriors used to drink the blood of their enemies in the false belief they could gain their enemies strength.

  34. QUESTION:
    Question for pastors, biblical teachers, anyone who knows. ?
    Ok. In the bible it says that during the rapture the dead in christ will rise first. The graves will burst open, and the physical bodies will be gone. This includes those who are not in actual graves, who are in the bottom of the ocean, ect. So, what if, say, A nonbeliever gets a deceased christians organ during an organ transplant. Liver, heart, lung, eyes, whatever. Will these organs burst from the new owners, during the rapture, to join their original owners? Gruesome, yes, but… I’d like to know.

    • ANSWER:
      The Bible teaches that people will be either raptured or resurrected with spiritual bodies so it doesn’t matter what happened to their physical bodies or the organs therein.

      1 Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

      45 And so it is written, “THE FIRST MAN ADAM BECAME A LIVING BEING.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.

      47 The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

      51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed– 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

  35. QUESTION:
    Anyone interested to know why eating pork is forbidden in Islam?
    Allaah does not prescribe any ruling but there is great wisdom behind it, which we may understand, or our minds may not be guided to understand it.

    Eating of pork can cause no less than seventy different types of diseases. A person can have various helminthes like roundworm, pinworm, hookworm, etc. One of the most dangerous is Taenia Solium, which is in lay man’s terminology called tapeworm. It harbours in the intestine and is very long. Its ova i.e. eggs, enter the blood stream and can reach almost all the organs of the body. If it enters the brain it can cause memory loss. If it enters the heart it can cause heart attack, if it enters the eye it can cause blindness, if it enters the liver it can cause liver damage. It can damage almost all the organs of the body.

    Pork is also forbidden in the bible:
    “And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you. Ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.” [14:8]

    Is it really sinful to clone my monkey?
    At the Oregon National Primate Research Centre.. those fancy “scientific creationist” dudes have cloned adult monkeys to make more monkey brains and such.

    So, is this what creationists believe? I could be a little confused, but I think they want to make human embryos to grow replacement body parts. That’s not such a sinful outcome for someone who needs a new lung or liver… or is it?

    How does the Bible or the Koran deal with this unforseen development in scientific creationist theory?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve never heard of a “scientific creationist,” but I suspect it’s different from a creationist who believes God created the world.

      In any event, as a Christian, I’m 100% for using human embryos to grow replacement body parts. We should be helping the humans who are already here rather than worrying about a clump of cells that’s not even a human being yet.

    Love the Lord your God with all your heart?
    Since the heart of a man was his inward man. The bible describes that as the organs and entrails… why don’t we on Valentines Day tell our girlfriends/wives that we love them with our kidney, liver, spleen, pancreas, large intestines etc. etc. etc. Will they not appreciate us if we talk like that and is that why they changed it to heart?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Damage Control. This is what God teaches when he commands us to love Him with all our Heart. First let me post the verse you are referring to. The Lord was speaking to a scribe who asked him “which is the first commandment of all?” Jesus says in Mark 12:30:

      “And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

      The Lord told the scribe that the greatest commandment is to love God. When a person loves the Lord with all of His heart, it means that with his whole essence he loves the Lord. God describes this “heart” love in
      Matthew 6:21:

      “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” This is also taught in Matthew 12:34-35:

      “Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.”

      Where your treasure is there you will find your heart. Everyone should ask himself the question, “Is God the greatest treasure in my life or does someone or something else occupy that place?”

      What is the most important thing is your life? God demands that He have first place in a person’s life.

  41. QUESTION:
    Why does God share our form?
    The human body is nearly perfectly suited for life on Earth, so why would God need this same form even before there was an Earth? Why would he need legs, eyes, a nose, liver, an appendix, etc..

    It was said in the bible we where blessed with his form, even though he would have no use for a body.

    • ANSWER:
      Everything is not as it appears to be.
      When God created us in his own image, it doesn’t necessarily mean we were created in the same form of God.
      Gods form is Spirit.
      Our spirit or our soul is in the very breath we breath.
      When we are done with this body here on earth then we shall take our spiritual from.
      Yes! We were blessed with this body, and we won’t be needing it once we have died the first death , and those whom have chose to follow God and accept Jesus in their lives and have confessed their sins and were forgive, and walk in Gods ordinance, will receive a new heavenly body when we go to be with God in his heavenly kingdom..

  44. QUESTION:
    why pork is prohibited.do u know all this if not read it?
    Pork prohibited in the Bible
    The Christian is likely to be convinced by his religious scriptures. The Bible
    prohibits the consumption of pork, in the book of Leviticus
    “And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven footed, yet he cheweth
    not the cud; he is unclean to you”.
    “Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch,
    they are unclean to you.” [Leviticus 11:7-8]
    Pork is also prohibited in the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy
    “And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud,
    it is unclean unto you. Ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their
    dead carcass.” [Deuteronomy 14:8]
    A similar prohibition is repeated in the Bible in the book of Isaiah chapter 65 verse 2-5.

    Consumption of pork causes several diseases

    logic and science. Eating of pork can cause no less than seventy different types
    of diseases. A person can have various helminthes like roundworm, pinworm,
    hookworm, etc. One of the most dangerous is Taenia Solium, which is in lay
    man’s terminology called tapeworm. It harbours in the intestine and is very long.
    Its ova i.e. eggs, enter the blood stream and can reach almost all the organs of
    the body. If it enters the brain it can cause memory loss. If it enters the heart it
    can cause heart attack, if it enters the eye it can cause blindness, if it enters the
    liver it can cause liver damage. It can damage almost all the organs of the body.
    Another dangerous helminthes is Trichura Tichurasis.
    A common misconception about pork is that if it is cooked well, these ova die.
    In a research project undertaken in America, it was found that out of twenty-four
    people suffering from Trichura Tichurasis, twenty two had cooked the pork very
    well. This indicates that the ova present in the pork do not die under normal
    cooking temperature.
    4. Pork has fat building material
    Pork has very little muscle building material and contains excess of fat. This fat
    gets deposited in the vessels and can cause hypertension and heart attack. It is
    not surprising that over 50% of Americans suffer from hypertension.
    5. Pig is one of the filthiest animals on earth
    The pig is one of the filthiest animals on earth. It lives and thrives on muck,
    faeces and dirt. It is the best scavenger that I know that God has produced. In
    the villages they don’t have modern toilets and the villagers excrete in the open
    air. Very often excreta is cleared by pigs.
    Some may argue that in advanced countries like Australia, pigs are bred in very
    clean and hygienic conditions. Even in these hygienic conditions the pigs are
    kept together in sties. No matter how hard you try to keep them clean they are
    filthy by nature. They eat and enjoy their own as well as their neighbour’s
    excreta.
    6. Pig is the most shameless animal
    The pig is the most shameless animal on the face of the earth. It is the only
    animal that invites its friends to have sex with its mate.

  45. QUESTION:
    Do you understand the wisdom behind the prohibition on certain foods in Islam??
    Wisdom Behind Dietary Restrictions in Islam

    Bob: Tell me why is it that a Muslim is very particular about the words Halaal and Haraam; what do they mean?

    Yunus: That which is permissible is termed Halaal and that which is not permissible is termed Haraam and it is the Qur’an which draws the distinction between the two

    Bob: Can you give me an example?

    Yunus: Yes, Islam has prohibited consuming blood of any type. You will agree that a chemical analysis of blood shows that it contains an abundance of uric acid, a chemical substance which can be injurious to human health

    Bob: You’re right about the toxic nature of uric acid, in the human being it is excreted as a waste product and in fact we are told that 98% of
    the body’s uric acid is extracted from the blood by the kidneys and removed through urination

    Yunus: Now I think that you’ll appreciate the special prescribed method of animal slaughter in Islam.

    Bob: What do you mean?

    Yunus: You see, the wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name of the Almighty’, makes an incision through the jugular veins, leaving all other veins and organs intact.

    Bob: I see, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ.

    Yunus: Yes, were the organs, example the heart, the liver, or the brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous; only today did our dieticians realize such a thing

    Bob: Again, while on the topic of food; why do Muslims condemn the eating of pork or ham or any foods related to pigs or swine.

    Yunus: Actually, apart from the Qur’an prohibiting the consumption of pork, bacon (pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus chapter 11, verse 8, regarding swine it says, “Of their flesh (of the swine another name for pig) shall you not eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are unclean to you.” Further, did you know that a pig cannot be slaughtered at the neck for it does not have a neck; that is according to its natural anatomy? A Muslim reasons that if the pig was to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the Creator would have provided it with a neck. Nonetheless, all that aside, I am sure you are well informed about the harmful effects of the consumption of pork, in any form, be it pork chops, ham, bacon.

    Bob: The medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseases as the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases.

    Yunus: Yes, even apart from that, as we talked about uric acid content in the blood, it is important to note that the pig’s biochemistry excretes only 2% of its total uric acid content, the remaining 98% remains as an integral part of the body.

  46. QUESTION:
    why do Christians hate knowledge so so bad?
    ever since its its beginnings the christian faith has resolutely fought on every level every technological advance we have ever had as a civilization. they tried to stop doctors from curing people in the early years cuz only jesus could heal. they said the earth was flat, they said we are the center of the universe. they said that galileo and copernicus were heretics. they censored much of leanardo da vincis work. even today they would rather make liver problems suffer dialysis treatments when genetic research could clone a replacement liver that the host body would not reject because it really is its own? ever since the apple of adam and eve was symbolized as the knowledge of good and evil and things they have seriously seriously set our technological advancement back. they even burn books and destroyed the alexandria library because many of the documents went against the bible! all that knowledge they flushed down the toilet. how much longer do we have to survive the christian ego?
    heart transplants liver transplants kidney transplants and other very critical inpants would be possible and would not be rejected by the host body. if stem cell research fought by christians alone were allowed to continue
    morality is a concept that befits a civilization that makes mistakes and a surviving civilization could see its mistakes and guard against it. example we have great checks and balances in the nuclear science field because of the cost of the mistakes in that field this is all do to careful science planning and ethics and has NOTHING to do with christian morality
    why do people think that a person who belongs to a faith that deserves some recognition and retribution for sufferences leveled against them because they are deemed devil worshippers? i am wiccan i dont think a satan exsists and yet christians automatically assume i make sacrifices to him in worship. i have opened up within myself areas of truth that would not exisist at all in christian dogma. no knowledge would be allowed. as for the studies we already have it was shown quite plainly to christians they were wrong to think the earth was flat(some still think that way) and we let them get off with a opps my bad?
    i am glad i got a lot of you to think for yourself and not a child molesting priest to tell you what to think.. no its not entirely the christian faith to blame, the politics we have today seems to do well but let me remind you that all the politics we have today was a standard set by the roman catholic church in the first holy roman empire. at that level its impossible to determine which is politics and which is organized religion. i know some wonderful christians that would not be so wonderful otherwise and in the army i learned if it works dont fix it. i leave them alone. but if we continue to allow the political and religious agenda stand as is we of course will suffer all the propaganda end times they predicted in their religious works. you dont need to be george orwell to see that.
    hate to burst all your bubbles, but it was the catholics that made and control the bible of today. only the pope and the cardinal heirachy would be considered authority enough to change it. therefor anyone proclaiming belief in the bible is at their base level catholic. no way around it.

    • ANSWER:
      You have some valid questions for sure. And observations. There are certainly wonderful things to learn in Christianity, but I did find it to be lacking in a certain amount of substantial knowledge. One needs real knowledge to back up the sentiment of a spiritual belief system. Christianity took me just so far, but it just didn’t go deep enough…for me that is. I had alot of questions that the Christian faith just would not answer. And don’t tell me that I’m not “meant” to know the answers to my questions. If I have the question in the first place, I know there’s an answer….and I’m going to find it. Somehow I know that that is what God would want me to do…it’s all so much fun, too!

  47. QUESTION:
    Does God have a spleen?
    I’m on the God thing today, But if I’m not mistaken the Bible says God created us in his image. So we are just like him, so he must have the same stuff he gave to us. But why would God need a liver or a pancreas, or eyes. This must have been the form of God before he created us in order for us to be in his image. But why would he need these things? Does he need to eat? These may be childish questions but they seem valid to me. But I can see somone has sorta beat me to this question, o well. Answer anyway, let’s see what we get. BTW I am asking this as a serious question.

    • ANSWER:
      Our body is imitation; His is real. Is like tree made of plastic, is imitation of the natural tree.
      You must understand that God lives in another dimension, is not material, is spiritual. This material world is just a perverted reflection of that world where He lives, there He lives with innumerable of living beings, with the same nature of His, serving Him with love.
      Actually we, humans, are made of two energies, one spiritual and the other material. Our original form is spiritual like God, but now our spiritual form is covered by the material form. God doesn’t have anything that you mentioned, but, since this world is imitation of the real one, that mean there is also eating process, but is not precisely for maintaining the body, is for pleasure, everything there is pleasure. Here is like when your are in disease condition, everything you do is painful and difficult, but when you recuperate your normal healthy condition everything is pleasing.
      Thank you for asking nice question.

  48. QUESTION:
    The answer to these questions would greatly help me accept christianity?
    If you are in the business of saving souls, please don’t just pass this up because its long, thank you.

    I was amazed to see how many people on here care about the salvation of even one person, so I’ve decided to give Christ a chance. I’m posing my most difficult questions to the Y!A community in hopes that you can set me straight or set me free. Thank you so much for your kindness.

    1) The bible is pretty clear that God made Adam as a living soul. Adam doesn’t have a soul, he is a soul. When the wealthy man approached Jesus and asked how he could attain eternal life, what did Jesus tell him. NOT that he already had eternal life, but that he was to give away all of his things and follow Jesus. So, the christian idea is that we are a living soul, with the breath of life put into us at creation. The idea of an eternal life can be traced back to greek origins where you either go to hades or the Elysian fields. So, we have established that the traditional christian way of looking at mortality is that we are physical beings. It even says in the bible that death is a dreamless sleep and we will be resurrected on the last day. Obviously there is no consciousness between death and resurrection. So, since the bible never mentions any spirit or soul that we have separate from our physical bodies, then we can leave the rest to science. Thoughts and self-awareness are just bio-chemical reactions. Our mind is nothing more than chemistry, over-simplified but true all the same. So where is the memory saver? Think about it, if i have my appendix, tonsils, gall bladder, leg, lung, kidney, arm, or any other non-vital organ removed or amputated, am I any less me than I was before? NO. So, it stands to reason that I am my mind, or more specifically my brain. Now, you can clone me a liver, but its not my liver. You can clone me a heart, but its not my heart. You can clone me a brain, but its not my brain. So when I die, and my body turns to dust and the worms eat my flesh, when a body is constructed by the lord, and that is supposed to be me…. where am I? Just because he recreated a body out of dust doesn’t mean its me. Where am I? I don’t exist. There is no memory saver, nothing that transcends the body. So, if there is no afterlife for me, and my consciousness doesn’t transcend death, then there is no need for a savior because there is nothing I’m being saved from.

    2) In the bible, only the prophets, Jesus, and his apostles did great works for man. The only positive thing that god did was make it rain manna. Conversely, the bible is full of atrocities committed by God. So, if the only thing that god in heaven does is provide us with life after death, then why do we pray to him in life. Why do we have hope that our life will look up when Jesus says “blessed are you who hate your life”? Where does this idea come from that there’s someone watching out for us. The Jews believed that if you weren’t in God’s favor, then he’d kill you. That is aversion. The reward for good is life as usual. The punishment is death. Why pray?

    These are only two of many that plague my mind, and use christianity’s own beliefs against it. In science, when a theory contradicts itself, it is seen as a very poor theory, and doesn’t stand up at all to scrutiny. So why should we not do the same with christianity?

    Thanks for the help, I’ve been pondering and researching these questions for weeks. I know the facts, I want your opinions. If you doubt any of these facts, look them up yourself and be amazed that you don’t practice christianity. If i’m satisfied with your answers, I’ll post more questions. I hope I get to.

    • ANSWER:
      You’re nowhere near committing the Cardinal Sin. The Bible says you can say anything against the Son of Man and you will be forgiven. Matthew 12:31 & 32

      So that voice was lying! It was also contradicting the Bible and the Devil/Satan is the chief of liars so it’s either him or one of his demons, so you know NOT to believe that voice.

  50. QUESTION:
    Why is PORK FORBIDDEN in islam?
    PORK FORBIDDEN

    The fact that consumption of pork is prohibited in Islam is well known. The
    following points explain various aspects of this prohibition:
    1. Pork prohibited in Qur’an
    The Qur’an prohibits the consumption of pork in no less than 4 different places.
    It is prohibited in 2:173, 5:3, 6:145 and 16:115.
    “Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine,
    and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah.”
    [Al-Qur’an 5:3]
    The above verses of the Holy Qur’an are sufficient to satisfy a Muslim as to why
    pork is forbidden.
    2. Pork prohibited in the Bible
    The Christian is likely to be convinced by his religious scriptures. The Bible
    prohibits the consumption of pork, in the book of Leviticus
    “And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven footed, yet he cheweth
    not the cud; he is unclean to you”.
    “Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch,
    they are unclean to you.” [Leviticus 11:7-8]
    Pork is also prohibited in the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy
    “And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud,
    it is unclean unto you. Ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their
    dead carcass.” [Deuteronomy 14:8]
    A similar prohibition is repeated in the Bible in the book of Isaiah chapter 65 verse 2-5.
    3. Consumption of pork causes several diseases
    The other non-Muslims and atheists will agree only if convinced through reason,
    logic and science. Eating of pork can cause no less than seventy different types
    of diseases. A person can have various helminthes like roundworm, pinworm,
    hookworm, etc. One of the most dangerous is Taenia Solium, which is in lay
    man’s terminology called tapeworm. It harbours in the intestine and is very long.
    Its ova i.e. eggs, enter the blood stream and can reach almost all the organs of
    the body. If it enters the brain it can cause memory loss. If it enters the heart it
    can cause heart attack, if it enters the eye it can cause blindness, if it enters the
    liver it can cause liver damage. It can damage almost all the organs of the body.
    Another dangerous helminthes is Trichura Tichurasis.
    A common misconception about pork is that if it is cooked well, these ova die.
    In a research project undertaken in America, it was found that out of twenty-four
    people suffering from Trichura Tichurasis, twenty two had cooked the pork very
    well. This indicates that the ova present in the pork do not die under normal
    cooking temperature.
    4. Pork has fat building material
    Pork has very little muscle building material and contains excess of fat. This fat
    gets deposited in the vessels and can cause hypertension and heart attack. It is
    not surprising that over 50% of Americans suffer from hypertension.
    5. Pig is one of the filthiest animals on earth
    The pig is one of the filthiest animals on earth. It lives and thrives on muck,
    faeces and dirt. It is the best scavenger that I know that God has produced. In
    the villages they don’t have modern toilets and the villagers excrete in the open
    air. Very often excreta is cleared by pigs.
    Some may argue that in advanced countries like Australia, pigs are bred in very
    clean and hygienic conditions. Even in these hygienic conditions the pigs are
    kept together in sties. No matter how hard you try to keep them clean they are
    filthy by nature. They eat and enjoy their own as well as their neighbour’s
    excreta.
    6. Pig is the most shameless animal
    The pig is the most shameless animal on the face of the earth. It is the only
    animal that invites its friends to have sex with its mate. In America, most people
    consume pork. Many times after dance parties, they have swapping of wives;
    i.e. many say “you sleep with my wife and I will sleep with your wife.” If you eat
    pigs then you behave like pigs.

      Because pork is unfit for human consumption.
