Knowing the true condition of the dead has greatly helped me to cope with death. God's Word, the Bible, teaches at Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 that "the dead know nothing at all....there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave." Recognizing that the dead are conscious of nothing assures me that they … Read more

Before his ascension to heaven, Jesus commanded: “Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, . . . Teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19, 20) Christians’ primary work involves teaching, which includes explaining how Bible principles can be applied in everyday life.

He may begin to depend more and more on superstitions, and before he know it, they may rule his life. And since superstitions are based on lies, he could become, in effect, a slave of “the father of the lie,” Satan. (John 8:44)  In his book Believing in Magic—The Psychology of Superstition, Professor Stuart A. … Read more

Understandable, many persons are frightened by what they see taking place on earth—increasing lawlessness, terrorism, pollution of air, land and water, and general unrest among peoples and nations. Although affected by these conditions, I try very hard not to have a gloomy outlook. Because I  know from God’s Word that the present world situation is … Read more

The Scriptures refer to the figurative heart, which is the inner person—our desires, attitudes, and feelings. So loving Jehovah with our whole heart means that more than anything else, we desire to please God. (Psalm 86:11) We show that we have such love by making our personality acceptable to him. We strive to imitate God … Read more

In addition to that, you will have a clean conscience. You'll be free of the nagging feeling of wondering if your dishonesty would ever be discovered. More … Read more

It sounds like a mistake. Surely you weren't trying to damage the couch, but as a result of your actions it was damaged. The fact that you feel bad says something really good about you. You have at work in you the gift of conscience that our Creator, Jehovah God has endowed you with. Our … Read more

True Christianity basics remain the same. What has changed is religions that have been formed in an attempt to get away from the direction that Jesus gave his followers. What man has done is to change things to suit his own personal likes and dislikes, instead submitting to the direction that Jesus gave.

The bible acknowledges the god of this system of things who is very real. It says at 2Cor 4:3,4 "If, in fact, the good news we declare is veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that … Read more

Jesus likened “the end of the world” to what happened at the time of the global Flood in Noah’s day. (Matthew 24:37-39) At that time it was not the earth itself that was destroyed. Rather, it was ungodly humans. Because of the shocking behavior of the people living back then, God said: “I am going … Read more

I don't like any injustices. For example, when someone is falsely accused of doing something that's hurtful and malicious and they didn't have anything to do with it, is painful to me. For quite some time, I've heard some individuals blame God for all of the sickness, pain, suffering and death of people, young and … Read more
