What Does The Bible Say About Judgment?

What Does The Bible Say About JudgmentWhat does the Bible say about judgment?  Will God actually judge all of us one day?  If so, what will that be like?  After all, how can a loving God pass judgment on someone else?  Isn't that a contradiction?  Those are the kinds of questions that many people ask about Christianity.  They are extremely important questions, because if all of us will be held accountable for our actions by God someday that has huge implications.  If we are not ever going to be held accountable for our actions on earth, then there is not really anything keeping us from doing whatever we want - or at least whatever we can get away with.  However, if the God of the universe is going to hold us accountable for what we do on earth, then that puts an entirely different spin on things.  But would it be fair for God to judge us like that?      (Read More.....)

What Does The Bible Say About The Deity Of Christ?

What Does The Bible Say About The Deity Of ChristWhat does the Bible say about the deity of Christ? The truth is that this is a very complex subject and is often tied into discussions about the Trinity. For a comprehensive look at what the Scriptures say about the Trinity, please see our other article entitled "What Does The Bible Say About The Trinity?"  There are many religious organizations out there today who claim that Jesus was not God and that He never claimed to be God.  As you will see in this article, those claims are completely and totally false.  The Bible is exceedingly clear that Jesus claimed to be God.  The Scriptures are also very clear that the first Christians believed that Jesus was God.  Unfortunately the vast majority of people in the world today (even most Christians) simply do not know their Bibles.  Even many of those who do know their Bibles a little bit would rather have their "ministers" tell them what to believe rather than investigating it for themselves.  Once you learn what the Bible says, there is no getting around the fact that Jesus claimed to be God and that the early Christians believed that He was God.  The question is - are you going to believe it?

What Does The Bible Say About The Trinity?

What Does The Bible Say About The TrinityWhat does the Bible say about the Trinity? The truth is that the word "Trinity" is not in the Bible, but the concept of the Trinity most definitely is. So just what is "the Trinity"? The Trinity is one God existing in three Persons. That is the essence of the Trinity. God the Father is God, God the Son (Jesus) is God, and God the Holy Spirit is God - and yet there is only one God. Advocates of other religions who don't believe in the Trinity will immediately object at this point and say that this is impossible. But the truth is that God is so much greater than us and so far beyond our understanding that it is not for us to say what is or is not possible for God. As we shall see, the Scriptures very clearly tell us that the Father is God, that Jesus is God and that the Holy Spirit is God - and yet that God is one God. Some have tried to compare the Trinity to water. You see, water can be a gas, a liquid or a solid - and yet it is still water. That metaphor is quite imperfect, but it can be helpful to an extent. The reality is that no metaphor is going to be fully able to describe God. But God has revealed Himself in His Word, and when we turn to the Scriptures we find all of the answers that we need.
