Now a question for you!!!

 Are you  so busy you have not had time for God and his word? 

Perhaps you are really busy trying to live your life, raise your family, deal with your job and get just along.  You don't have time for "religion", Jesus, or the Bible.

   Well, consider this: 

Nobody lives forever!!!  How about after you die???  Then what????  

After you die you will have plenty of time, but then it will be too late.  It's the decisions you make today that will determine where and how you will spend all your eternal tomorrows. 

The Bible tells us

"It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" Heb 9:27 

***********************

The Bible is the only book God ever wrote. It's God's road map to heaven. It tells us how to get from here to eternity with God.

What we Believe!

We believe there is a God, that this God created us and all the world around us. We believe this God has chosen to communicate with us, to give us this Bible so we may learn things about him we could not otherwise know. 

However, before any of us can receive any benefit from the Answers God has given us in the Bible, we must first believe that God exists and that the Bible is His book.  

At "Bible Answers" we believe God exists, and we believe the Bible is the only book God ever wrote, (Heb 11:6). We believe that if we are ever going to know and understand  God we need to know what the Bible says so we don't get lost on the highway to heaven.

What Do You Believe?

If you don't believe in God, what do you believe in??

What choices do you have???  

If you don't believe that God exists you are left with only a few other choices. You might believe that all this world around us was created by some eternal  process of evolution. Or, you might believe all this that we see around us came about accidentally from some massive cosmic explosion, the "Big Bang Theory" and that life just developed from non-life.

There are some problems with these "Theroies" 

If you believe in the theory of evolution,  you still have to explain where the original, single cell life form came from that started it all.  Who created this original single cell of life?    If the theory of ageless  evolution is your belief, then where is the evidence that this evolution of species is still continuing today? 

If you believe in the "Big Bang Theory" there seems to be a problem that in all of recorded history man has never seen life created out of non-life. 

How did this first single cell of life originate? If it did not originate from non-life then who made it?  Could it be that God made it?? Maybe he even made it just as the Bible has said, that we are created "In His image and likeness"? 

But,  if there is no God to make life, if life just developed from some chemical or atomic reaction and "Sha-Zam"  life just sprung from non-life: Then why have we, as smart as we are, not been able to do it again?

Do you believe this orderly and precise world resulted accidentally from some uncontrolled cataclysmic event?  It is hard to believe that any thoughtful observation of the world around us can support such a suggestion. It would be easier for us to believe that all the great classics of poetry and literature miraculously resulted from some unsupervised, uncontrolled, "Big Bang" explosion in a print shop, than to believe all we are and all we see is all just an accident of nature. 

It seeems  unreasonable to believe in a world without God, but if you do, then this web site is probably not for you. On the other hand, if you have questions about the God who created this world, welcome to:

Bible  Answers

Why have we put up this web site? We believe there is an almighty God, that he created mankind and this world we live in, and that he desires those of us who believe in him and his word to share his story with the world. This web site is our little effort to provide Bible  Answers to your everyday questions!

Have you ever asked:   "Does God really exist?" and if so, "What is God like?"

Have you ever asked:   "What am I doing here?"  "Why did God put me here?"

These are tough questions and they deserve more than quick short answers. The Bible gives us in depth answers to these questions and much, much more. 

On this website we will share with you things that we have learned from the Bible Answers that we hope will address some of your questions. On the following pages you will find answers to: 

Questions about the Bible 

Questions about God

Questions about Jesus: The man, His parables and His teachings

Questions about the Last Days on Planet Earth,  Eternity, and the Book of Revelation

We update our site regularly, so visit us often as we respond to your questions right here with BIBLE  ANSWERS.  If you have questions about the Bible, about God, about the man Jesus, his teachings or his parables, about the Future, the Book of Revelation or any other book or topic in the Bible mail them to us and we will post the

WHAT  WE  BELIEVE

We believe in God.  We believe God created us to live and enjoy this life.  We believe God is eternal, and that after our life here on earth is finished, God wants us to come home and enjoy eternity with him.  We believe God is HOLY and because he is holy, neither sin nor sinful man can be allowed to be with him. We believe both our sin and our sin nature separates us from God, and keeps us out of heaven.  But, Praise God, we believe this eternal, all powerful God has reached out to us to tell us things about himself and his plan to rescue sinful man out of the punishment of eternal death, and into the presence of his eternal life.  Our Bible tells us things about God that we could not otherwise know, and shows us the way to this eternal life.  We believe God has given us his word, written down and preserved for us today in the Bible. We believe the Bible we hold in our hands today is this "Word of God",  and by reading and understanding it we may come to know God and find our way home.

STATEMENT of FAITH

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God given to us. We believe  that each of us have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). All we  like sheep have gone astray and wandered far from God (Isaiah 53:6). We believe God so loves us that He sent His only begotten Son to this earth to suffer and die so that whosoever believes in his heart that Jesus Christ suffered and died for their sins shall receive forgiveness of their sins and  will be brought back into God's family (John 3:16). 

Because we have trusted Jesus Christ for our salvation we know  that  when this life is done, we will join God in heaven for eternity.  You can read all about it in John 14: 2-3.  

THE  REALITY  of  LIFE

We are born, and we shall die, but death will not be the end of us.  Each of us will spend eternity somewhere.  Some will spend eternity in heaven, with the God who created us, enjoying all the benefits heaven has to offer - forever!  However, Jesus has told us in Matthew 7:13-14 that many will spend eternity in hell, with Satan and his demons, enduring  pain and suffering - forever!  How we spend the "forever"  part of our life depends on what decisions we make in the "here and now" part of our life.

God does not send anyone to hell.  hell, in fact, was not created for man but for those angels who in the long ago past, rebelled against God (2Pet 2:4).  But, due to the rejection of God's word by Adam and Eve in time past, and our own present  rejection of God's offer of redemption, we are, each of us, guilty of rejecting God and we are ourselves on the road to hell  -  unless someone saves us.  The good news is that someone has offered to save us!  God tells us in His word  about the saving provision He has made for each of us, and how we can each  receive our own assurance of eternal life and find the place God has made  for us in our heavenly home.  God's  word, the Bible, shows us the way back to Him, and it is for that reason we want to share God's  word with our visitors. Make no mistake about it - Jesus Christ died for you!!!! 

You can choose where you  will spend eternity.  As  for me and my house, we have chosen to spend our eternity in heaven with God (Joshua 24:15). 

What many folks do not realize is that NOT making a choice is itself making a choice.  A choice not to choose God is in fact a choice to reject Him, and His plan for  us to spend our eternal life with Him.  It is a choice that will send one  into eternal suffering. The Bible makes it very clear, rejection of God's word will cause us to miss out on the blessings of heaven and consign a person to an eternity of suffering in hell. Once there, it will be too late to choose again!  Don't make that mistake.  Find your map and God's  road to redemption in the Bible.
