Who killed Jesus? (Ghana)

God holds the Jews responsible for crucifying Jesus. First, we have the Jews’ own words to Pilate. Mark 15:14, “Then Pilate said to them, ‘Why, what evil has He done?’ But they cried out all the more, ‘Crucify Him!’” John 19:15, “Pilate said to them, ‘Shall I crucify your King?’ The chief priests answered, ‘We [...]

Why did Jesus heal the sick? (Zambia)

These healings reveal Jesus’ compassion for suffering mankind. Matthew 14:14 “...He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick.” Again, when Jesus healed two blind men, He was “moved with compassion. Jesus touched their eyes and immediately they regained their sight and followed him.” Jesus was moved by man’s suffering.​ [...]

What would have been the answer today, if Jesus Christ said to a poor woman that she should get out of His way because the food we give to humans is not given to dogs? (Ghana)

Matthew 15:25-26 (NKJV), “Then she (a Syro-Phoenician woman) came and worshiped Him (Jesus), saying, ‘Lord, help me!’ But He answered and said, ‘It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.’” The Syro-Phoenicians (Canaanites) opposed the worship of Jehovah in Old Testament times. Consider how evil Queen Jezebel [...]

1 Corinthians 11:23 -26. What exactly does it mean when it says if any one eat and drink unworthily, he brings damnation to himself? Is that pertaining to sins in our life as Christians? Or before we are converted as Sinners? So, why does it say examine ourselves?

I Corinthians 11:27-29 (NIV), “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and [...]

Some Christian ministers teach communion should be eaten daily for healing. 1 Corinthians 11:26 does say, “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord’s death till he come.”

Communion has its origins in the Jewish Passover, which was observed yearly on the fourteenth of Nisan. As a Jew, Jesus celebrated the Passover throughout his life. (Luke 2:41; John 2:23; 6:4) On the last day of Jesus’ life, He and His disciples first ate the Passover supper. Afterward, Jesus took bread and the wine [...]

Matthew 6:33, "but seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” What does this mean?

Beginning with the first verse of Matthew 6, Jesus discusses five areas of important Christian development.   Give to the needy. This is a way to ‘practice righteousness’ in verses 1-4.   Pray, which allows us to communicate with our heavenly father and develop the proper attitude of submission to God’s will.  The template for [...]

Did Satan create mosquitoes, flies, and scorpions? Was he so jealous of the relationship between man and the Lord, that he did this to hurt mankind?

Man now is exploring the technology of genetic modification to alter the inheritable characteristics of living creatures (even human babies). People involved with ethics in research are concerned about these developments.   Man has never been good at predicting all the unintended consequences of his actions. Satan knows far, far more about genetics than any [...]

Is last minute repentance at death acceptable to God?

God does not deny what is true. So, if someone at death is truly repentant, God will accept the fact that he or she has repented. But, does a deathbed repentance earn a heavenly reward? Galatians 6:7,8 reads, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also [...]
