What is life? Does life in a human being begin it at conception? Life in the womb begins when the fetus has its own blood which Scripture calls as life. This happens when the fetus is after 2 weeks from conception. Hence, any form of abortion after 2 weeks is murder of an innocent life. However, IVF treatments for infertile couples usually stop with implanting or destroying or freezing blastocysts which is around day 5, when they don’t have life. Hence, life does not begin with conception but rather, when the fetus has its own blood, that is life.
Many Christians often misunderstand why they require Christ. While Christ can give us all we require, He is not required to actually receive anything in this world. Without Christ, we can receive food, have cure for diseases, lay up treasures, have authority and even be wiser than those who truly follow Christ. So, why do we need Christ? Christ did not promise any of the things of this world. The only thing that He promised to His disciples is Eternal life.
Atheism is the absence of belief in the existence of God (or gods). Many atheists claim that there is no evidence of God but they are wrong. In this post we will see how anyone can find God for themselves, receive evidence and get His response directly.
Not all dreams are from God and not all dreams have meanings attached to it. We dreams through much activity and because of our desires of our heart as well. Only some dreams are from God and they have meaning to it. Not all dreams are accurate as well. God can give false dreams to test us but accurate dreams and its interpretation even to unbelievers.
Many are happy with Santa-Claus, Christmas trees and elves in most secular circles but become unhappy when Jesus Christ or His message of salvation is mentioned. Christians must never compromise Christmas by introducing traditions and customs not found in scripture. These not only gives opportunity to remove Christ from Christmas but also eliminates His message of salvation.
The term sons of God and daughters of men who bore Nephilim which is often translated as giants had fascinated people for thousands of years. Even during the time of Jesus, many often understood this to be a union between angels and humans. Does the book of Genesis gives us some clues to identify them?
While investigating the Antediluvian years, I noticed something interesting worth sharing which could help reconstruct the antediluvian years from 3 ancient source differing with each other. Noah was born on the year 1656 AM. This is really interesting because, Masoretic provides this year as the year of the flood. Also, we can clearly see that Lamech and Methuselah dying in the flood since they died exactly on the year of flood, that is 2256 AM.
There is a wrong perspective that if someone casts out demons, or did miracles or prophesied then they must be holy and God is with him/her and we must listen to them for they may speak on God’s behalf. But reality is, as Jesus mentioned, even the Pharisees whom Jesus referred to as hypocrites can cast out demons.
Christ explained to us in His parable that different sins deserve different punishments. It is very important that we must never be a licentiousness to take for granted the grace of God, or careless to fully obey and follow Him, or ignorant of the will of God. We must always be like the faithful and wise steward, who not only prepared himself but also did the will of God.
The events mentioned in last supper of Jesus Christ causes a lot of confusion when compared with Passover of the LORD when both are same. Where is bitter herbs in the last supper? Where is wine in the Passover? The fruit of the vine is compared to the blood of Jesus that was be poured out for us. The vine mentioned does not necessarily mean grape vine but rather vine that produces bitter fruits as per the requirement for Passover. Some examples of such vine include bitter melons or bitter gourds which produces bitter fruits.
Most Christians pray to God with many requests like having a huge grocery list. Praying without doubting is important for receiving from God. That’s fine while praying. As time goes by, many even forget their prayer requests but we worship a God who listens to all our prayers and remembers them. When God is answering your prayer request, and if you don’t believe in it, God will punish you. Hence, be careful what you ask for, and make sure you hold on to it and never doubt until you get it.
