What If

  • The Bible is what it claims to be: the flawless revelation of the Creator to mankind?
  • God really is speaking to you in His Word?
  • The Bible has inherent keys with which you can derive the Author’s originally intended meaning of every verse?
  • Jesus Christ is The Unique Man he claims to be?
  • Jesus really did rise from the dead?

  • He is coming back to give everlasting life to those who believe in him?

A good question deserves a good answer. What follows are 50 good questions that countless people have asked, often without being given sensible, biblical answers. The necessarily brief answers we give here are designed to make you THINK and to whet your appetite to look more closely into the wonderful Word of God and see for yourself how magnificent and precise it really is. In many of the answers you will find links to more in-depth teachings, either video, audio, or written.

NOTE: Truth makes sense, but only if one has been taught the prerequisite foundation for understanding it. For example, were I to look at a blackboard filled with calculus, I’d say, “That makes no sense,” and I would be both right and wrong. It makes no sense to me, but it does make sense to scientists who have learned the pre-requisite mathematics necessary to understanding it and who thus use its principles to put people into space.

What kind of person are you? Are you a Truth seeker? Do you live your life according to the “Golden Rule” that Jesus gave us, and its corollary: Do unto others what you want others to do to you, and don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you? Do you value logic, reason, and linguistic principles? If your answers to these questions are Yes, we believe you will like what you find here.

You deserve a thorough, biblical answer to your questions, and when God’s Word is accurately presented so that His originally intended meaning is clear, every verse regarding a particular topic will fit together with no contradictions. If these short answers seem to make sense to you, dig in. Understanding the heart of God in His Word is the greatest adventure in learning available on earth today. Enjoy!
