Stranger On The Shore
The third time the resurrected Christ showed Himself to His disciples was by the Sea of Tiberias (Sea of Galilee).
Dejected and confused, Peter had been fishing all night, yet caught nothing, until a Stranger appeared on the seashore, and called them to cast their net on the right side of their vessel.
They were fishing with a typical seine net (aka. dragnet) the kind with floats at the top, and weights at the bottom, which they let out in a semicircle close to land, then rowed ashore to haul in both ends of the net to ensnare the enclosed Tilapia fish. Read More
In Ephesians Chapter 3 the Apostle Paul begins by praising God for His grace to him, and the revelation that he, a fanatical Pharisee, should be chosen to make known the Gospel of Christ to the Gentile world.
The Holy Ghost in Paul then makes the following statements, Eph. 3:9-12 KJV;
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

I will go and heal him
Please first read: Harmony of the Gospels
Would He come?
Why should the Jewish Messiah listen to a plea from a Gentile, could He be bothered with an oppressing idolater’s slave?
Should he have sent money or gifts as an inducement?
Such thoughts must’ve run through the soldier’s mind as he waited anxiously for news from his delegation. Read More
Was Christ Rude to Mary?
Q: Why does Christ refer to his mother Mary as “Woman” at the wedding of Cana, and at His crucifixion when He gives her to John? JD
A: Well spotted! It’s highly significant, and the answer touches the heart of the Gospel. Here’s the scriptures you cite, Jn. 2:3-4, 19:26-27 KJV;
And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
Woman: Not Mother
Notice the written word of God designates Mary as His mother, yet Jesus referred to her as woman; which can sound disrespectful, or even rude, to our ears. Read More
Genuine or Forgery?
Q: What is your opinion of the accusation that the Sinai Bible at The British Museum is a modern fake?
A: First of all, don’t be swayed by man’s opinion on anything of importance, get your answers to life’s questions from your Heavenly Father.
That’s what I’ve always done since I was saved in January 1988.
You see, human opinion is flawed: God’s word is faultless.
You’ve surely learned that from your own experience.
Those Two Witnesses always, and without exception, corroborate each other. Read More
Young Catholic wants to become a Christian
Q: I’m a fifteen year-old Catholic. Are Catholics considered Christians? Are they saved? Since I come from a very devout Catholic family, I cannot tell them if I convert, therefore, I would not be able to get a Protestant Bible. Is it okay if I use the Catholic Bible, known as the New American Bible, and just ignore the “hidden books”?
Also, I would not be able to attend Christian worship services; would God understand if I went to Catholic Mass to worship Him there, and at home? Andrew
A: Your four questions are all answered, “No!” Roman Catholics are not Christian, they are unsaved, religious sinners. Follow the links on that page and compare what God says in the Holy Bible, with what Catholics have written in their Official Catechism. Read More
Olympic Biblical Metaphors
Q: London and Rio Olympic Games: I was wondering if the ancient Olympics are mentioned in the Bible?
A: Yes, the Games of ancient Greece are alluded to many times, especially in Paul’s Epistles.
The games are not endorsed by scripture, because they were, and still are, utterly Pagan, and devoted to demons.
The Holy Spirit simply uses competitive athletic metaphors to encourage believers to be wholehearted and single-minded for Christ.
A brief history of the Olympic Games, followed by some scriptures
<< The ruins at Olympia, Greece, today.
The Greek Games were established in the year 776 Before Christ, and held continuously for almost twelve hundred years, until the third century AD. Read More
Is Swearing and Cursing Always Sin?
Q: If you use explicit language, without harming someone, is it still a sin? In the Bible, it doesn’t say you can’t use explicit language, that I know of. I am not sure, but I would like to know. Logan
A: Thank you for asking this question, you raise an important, and often overlooked point, despite the ubiquitous use of profane language today.

Q: I heard that the name of “Eve” should really be “Life”, and the KJV is wrong translating her name “Eve”. What do you make of that?
The Inerrant Word of God in English
A: Every accusation that the KJV is wrong is false, and anybody making allegations against the KJV is mistaken and teaching falsehood.
Stay away from suchlike, they are listening to Satan, who always tries to change what God has said.
As long as you attend to false-teachers, and Bible-switchers, you will live in; doubt, insecurity, and error.

How does God chasten or discipline us?
It is pure joy to have the uncorrupted word of God to study how to please our Heavenly Father. We’ve discovered that modern English Bible translations are untrustworthy, for they chop, change, and muddy the clean water of God’s word. Depending on them is like leaning on a broken staff, or using a faulty bow against the enemies of God.
