How Can People Really Know What Is Right and What Is Wrong?

The Bible indicates in Revelation 20:11-13 that every person will eventually be held accountable to God for all their deeds.  When the Bible and the laws of our society agree as to what is right and what is wrong regarding particular deeds (or behavior), there should be no uncertainty about whether we should or […]

Did the Ark of the Covenant Have Mystical Powers?

Some people believe that the Ark of the Covenant (also referred to as the Ark of God), which God instructed Moses to build (see Exodus 25), had mystical powers, but is such a belief supported by accounts that are recorded in the Bible?  To assess the merit of this belief, we will examine several […]

Discrepancies Regarding Various Incidents in Christ’s Life

In the four gospels (i.e., Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), there seem to be discrepancies in the recording of various incidents in the life of Jesus Christ.  We will address them under two primary categories: healing incidents and other incidents.

Does God Punish Innocent People?

Does the Bible indicate that a person is not guilty of sin if they do something wrong, but they do not know that it is wrong (i.e., if they sin unintentionally)?  Isn’t a person innocent in such circumstances and, therefore, they do not need to be concerned about being punished by God?

People are born with big differences in their intellects and aptitudes, their physical abilities and features, […]

Is Jesus Christ Equal with God?

1.  In John 14:28b, Jesus […]

Can Elite People Enter the Kingdom of God?

A number of scriptures in the Bible seem to indicate that various above-average achievers, including some types of religious leaders, wealthy people, and wise people will not be able to enter the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven.  Although proud people are not necessarily above-average achievers, we will also include them in […]

The Importance of Jesus Christ’s Life

Christians regularly celebrate the birth and the death of Jesus Christ at Christmas and Easter, respectively, but rarely His life.  This raises the question of whether or not the importance of Jesus’ life, as well as His birth and death, is adequately perceived.

In this article we will address two basic considerations regarding the importance […]

Unintentional Sins
