Questions about the Bible:
How can we know that the Bible really God's word to
Questions about God:
How can I please God? Some
believe their personal sacrifice is the way to please God, but they are wrong. Living a "good" life and making
great sacrifice will not in itself please God. The Old Testament was filled with sacrifice, but these were not offered to
try and please God. They were offered to honor God's son, Jesus Christ. The prophet Micah tells us how to please God. It is
not with sacrifices. It is not with our thithes or offerings. It is "to do justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly with
thy God". (Micah 6:6-8) Paul said the same thing in Galatians 2:16. "By the works of the law shall no flesh
be justified." And again in Ephesians 2:8&9, "You are justified by faith. It is the gift of God, not of
works, lest any man (or woman) should boast."
Questions about Jesus:
Why did Jesus have to die?
How can Jesus save us?
How do I know God has accepted the sacrifice of Christ
as "payment in full" for my sins? Because on the third day God raised Jesus from the dead
as proof of God's satisfaction with what His son had done. (to be continued)
Questions about the "Last Days"
Who is the Anti-Christ? The Anti-Christ will be a world military leader who
will conquer many nations in the name of world peace. By many he will be hailed as a hero. He says he will bring world peace. Israel
will be in their land, the temple will have been rebuilt and will serve as the center of Jewish worship of God. Coming back from a military campaign "the hero" will stop
at Jerusalem. The world will not fear this as his proclaimed plan is to visit the temple to worshid God. However, when he
goes to the temple he will declare himself as God, demand universal worship, and order that anyone who does not accept his
diety and mark will not be allowed to buy or sell. Godly jews will flee to the mountains, God will send plagues, armies
will gather at Armageddon, and all hell will break loose. (to be continued)
When will Jesus return?
Questions about Eternity:
Will the church go through the Great Tribulation? No! The church of true believers
will leave this earth in an instant, in less than the bat of an eye, in what we call the "Rapture", which will happen
before the Great Tribulation begins. (to be continued)
What must I do to be saved? In the dark of night,
Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews, came to Jesus and asked, "What must I do to have eternal life?" Jesus answered using
a example from the Old Testament. When Moses lifted up a bronse serpent in the wilderness all the Jews who looked upon
this symbol of sin were healed. In faith Moses lifted it up, in faith the people believed and looked, and by faith they
were given life. Jesus told Nicodemus that in the same way he, Jesus, would be made sin by God the Father, and would
be lifted up and nailed to the cross. All who looked on that cross, and believed in their heart that Jesus would
save them, will have eternal life. (Numbers 21:8-9 and John 3:14-15)
So it is today. "Believe only on the
Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." (Rom 3:21-22 & 10:9)
After I die, then what happens?
Is there life after death? Yes, the bible says it, I believe it, and that's good enough for me. (to be continued)
When will eternity begin? As
we read in the Bible Answer about Heaven and Hell, eternity starts at death. Eternal suffering or eternal joy.
Additionally, we read in Revelation Chapters 21 & 22 that this earth as we know it will be changed. Eternity will
begin here on earth. Evil will be destroyed, heaven will abide here on earth, "and there shall be no night, and they
will need no lamp, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light and they shall reign forever and ever. (Rev
22:5) Forever and ever is eternity!
Are Heaven and Hell real places? The Bible says they are and that's good enough
is a place of darkness, agony and torment. Jesus said in John 16:19-26 that "a certain rich man" is there, and when
he pleaded that a warning be sent to his family, Abraham replied from heaven that they had the Bible to warn them. If they
didn't believe the Scriptures, "neither would they believe though one rise from the dead". And, who would that
be? Satan, who now roams the earth seeking whom he can devour (1Pet 5:8), will be cast into hell in Rev 20, "and
shall (along with all the others there) be tormented day and night forever and ever." I don't know about you, but
I'm glad I'm not going there.
Heaven is a place of many mansions (John 14:1-4) where Jesus lives. The Apostle Paul was given a view of heaven
(2 Cor 12:1-2), and the church of believers will be there as we read in Rev 4:1-4.

Got Questions? The Bible has the answers, not our
answers, not the world's philosophical answers, but God's
Answers!!! Bible Answers - from the God who made us.
Don't have time for God and his word?
Perhaps you are really busy
just trying to live your life, and get along. You don't have time for "religion" and Jesus!!!
Well, consider this:
lives forever!!! How about after you die??? Then what???? You will have plenty of time then. However, it's
the decisions you make today that will determine where and how you will spend all your eternal tomorrows.
"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.
Do You Believe?
If you don't believe in God, what do you believe
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
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"?
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.
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:
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
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

WHAT 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.

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
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.
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!!!!
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).
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.
