• If the Christian god exists, why does he make it look like he doesn't?

    The Bible does not support the idea that the earth is only 6,000 years old. Following the descent from Adam it shows that man was created about 6,000 years ago. Genesis 1:1 says simply, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." After that the account goes into the forming of the earth in preparation for man and other... show more
    The Bible does not support the idea that the earth is only 6,000 years old. Following the descent from Adam it shows that man was created about 6,000 years ago. Genesis 1:1 says simply, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." After that the account goes into the forming of the earth in preparation for man and other life forms, that is the six creative days. There is no indication how much time passed from Genesis 1:1 and when the six creative days began or how long those creative days were. But it is clear that each creative day was much longer than our day of 24 hours. Day is used in the Bible for a variety of lengths of time.

  • If money is the root of all evil, then does that mean that everyone should be in poverty since it’s a sin to have lots of money?

    You got that wrong. It is not a sin to have money, the LOVE of money is the sin.. One Bible translation puts it this way: "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains" (1 Timothy 6:10) show more

  • If Jesus died for our sins (billions of people not born at the time), doesn't that prove we have no free will?

    Not at all. You still have the choice of whether you follow Jesus as one of his disciples or not. Everyone does not automatically benefit from the ransom; only those who do become his disciples. (Matthew 10:22) And you will be hated by all people on account of my name, but the one who has endured to the end will be saved. 32 “Everyone, then, who... show more

  • Why do people hate Christians so much?

    Jesus said that in the "last days" people would treat his followers that way. (Matthew 10:22) And you will be hated by all people on account of my name, but the one who has endured to the end will be saved.

  • How do I know which religion is right?

    It is the religion that follows Jesus: Jesus did not get involved in politics, nor should his followers. (John 18:36) This is because all earthly kingdoms (governments) will be removed and God's kingdom will be the only government. (Daniel 2:44) (Revelation 16:14, 16) Jesus taught others about God including his name Jehovah. (John... show more

(Daniel 2:44) (Revelation 16:14, 16) Jesus taught others about God including his name Jehovah. (John 17:6) Jesus taught that God's Kingdom was the only solution to the world's problems. It will remove ALL earthly governments. (Daniel 2:44) It teaches Bible truth, not false doctrine such as hellfire, immortality of the soul, or that all good people go to heaven. Christ's disciples are a world-wide brotherhood and have love for one another no matter where they live. (John 13:34, 35.) There is much more that these things.

  • How old were you when you found out Jesus never lived and was not real?

    You must have Jesus confused with Santa Claus. Many children were lied to about the existence of Santa Claus and then found out the he is not real. But Jesus is real and anyone denying that is denying reality.

  • Why is the world spinning out of control?

    Because right now Satan is in control as the Bible says. Read these verses. (2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

(2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through. (John 12:31) Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. (Revelation 12:9) So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. (Revelation 12:12) On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.” Satan is responsible for the badness and suffering in the world. But as these verses show he soon will be deposed. He has already been cast out of heaven and in his rage is causing this out of control spinning. But he has a short period of time. Soon, God will take control and remove Satan and his evil influence and restore peace to this earth. (Psalm 37:9-11) For evil men will be done away with, But those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth. 10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. (Psalm 37:29) The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it. For more information about what the Bible really teaches, contact Jehovah's Witnesses.

(Romans 5:12) That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned—. During his reign even the enemy death will be done away with. (1 Corinthians 15:24-26) Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.
