The first part is short for John 3:16 which reads (KJV): For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The second part is short for Do You Believe, with 3 in the place of E, and is asked in reference to the aforementioned verse. The second part is referring ...

The fruit of the spirit are listed in Galations 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (NIV)

The doctrine you are addressing is called Total Depravity. This question will actually say much more about it: What is the Biblical basis for Total Depravity? Various denominations have slightly different nuances to the idea, but typically the following verses are first up: Romans 3:10-11: "There is none is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; ...

According to The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell, p125, Josephus, who died after 100AD, wrote of Jesus in his Jewish Antiquities, "...for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and then thousand other wonderful things concerning him." (Antiquities, XVIII, 33). However, those words are ...

Actually, we are all under many curses. Death: We are subjected to death, aging, sickness and deformities because Adam and Eve failed to obey God by eating the fruit from the forbidden tree. Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned (Romans 5:12, ...

Genesis 28:18 (NLT) The next morning Jacob got up very early. He took the stone he had rested his head against, and he set it upright as a memorial pillar. Then he poured olive oil over it. Olive oil was very important in ancient Israel. It was used for not only as food and for cooking, but also for lighting, sacrificial offerings, ointment, ...

What does the reference mean? The Witnesses use a rather odd and somewhat cryptic set of abbreviations for their publications. g94 11/8 10 is Awake! magazine, 8th of November, 1994, p. 10. jv 134 is Jehovah’s Witnesses—Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom (pub. 1993), p. 134. Many books also have another, less cryptic abbreviation. For example, jv is often ...

I think you're looking for Hosea 4:6a: My people are ruined for lack of knowledge! This is part of a longer tirade against the priests of Israel, whom Hosea saw as leading Israel away from God (Hosea 4:1–6): But let no one accuse, let no one rebuke; with you is my dispute, priest! You will stumble in the day, and the prophet will ...

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. (Proverbs 25:2, NIV) There's a sense in which mysteries bring glory to God and solving them bring glory to us. It's no accident that so many people enjoy puzzles and riddles or exploration and experimentation, it's just another way in which we reflect the God whose ...

God created you, so for sure he knows you! God is also watching each one of us and he loves ❤ us. And yes, there are quotations, to be sure! Job 28:24 For he looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. 1 John 3:19-20 By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart ...

You may be thinking of Jeremiah 16:18: I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols. (NIV) That's the closest thing I was able to come up with on a BibleHub.com search.

I think you may be adding unnecessary implications to the text. Genesis 28:5 ESV Thus Isaac sent Jacob away. And he went to Paddan-aram, to Laban, the son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother. Jacob was sent to live at Laban's house for a while. Clearly he was rushed because of Esau, but there's no indication that ...

I'm pretty sure that there is no source that looks at only Jesus words. However there are certainly theological approaches that place a much greater emphasis on Jesus words. For a start you might want to look at Red Letter Christians, a group that attempts to redress what they see as an imbalance in North American Evangelicalism, which they believe has ...

Update 2 Wednesday, October 08, 2014: The error in an article by an author of an article on the Vatican website CANNOT be attributable to the Catholic Church. Summary of the findings so far Is there evidence that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS Church or, informally, the Mormon Church) officially teaches or has taught in the past ...

I understand that, today, the LDS Church does not teach that all non-LDS Christians are going to hell. However, in times past, this appears to have been precisely what was taught: The Book of Mormon indicates that there are only two churches, one true and one of the devil: "Behold there are save two churches only; the one is the Church of the Lamb of ...

There are a number of verses that suggest that all people are sinners, here are a handful: (all quotes are from the NRSV) Romans 3:23 "since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" 1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Ecclesiastes 7:20 "Surely there is no one on earth so ...

Probably the most applicable Scripture comes from Isaiah chapter 55: Isaiah 55:8 and 9 KJV For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. We seem to forget a few things about God that we really ...

God, being the source of all intelligibility of creation, by His nature is all knowledgeable. Although many theists might view God as an 'impersonal force' of some kind, similar to the 'Force' in Star Wars, God is in fact not only personal, but more personal than we could ever imagine. This is due to God's omniscience. We are created in His image, and all ...

If you are referring to Christ's second coming: Your story implies that Jesus has come in some sort of secret way. Consider the implications of 1 Thessalonians 4:16: For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (NIV) When ...

A passage whose interpretation clearly delineates Jesus as being greater than other prophets is the parable of the wicked tenants: 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of ...

One can say that we are all born cursed. Children can inherit a predisposition of a disease of their parents, whether it be Diabetes, Cancer, or other illnesses. Sin is also a sickness that has been inherited from our parents. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:5 When Jesus came to this Earth and ...

To be sure, there are many biblical virtues, and each one, when empowered by the Holy Spirit, can be both an indication of spiritual growth and maturity and a powerful witness to a watching world. The particular list Paul provides in Galatians chapter 5 is not an exhaustive list of Christian virtues, but it is certainly comprehensive. Notice that the list ...

This story is preserved in Menologion of the Holy Tradition, When Joseph, after returning from Egypt, began to divide his land among his children born of his first wife,1 he also wished to give a portion to the Lord Jesus Who was born supernaturally and without corruption of the all-pure Virgin Mary, and Who was then but a little child. But three of ...

While not really a systematic theology book, John Piper's What Jesus Demands from the World is predominantly based on the gospels. There is a free PDF on that page. The book's blurb is: The four Gospels are filled with demands from Jesus. These demands are Jesus’ way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not harsh demands ...

Read Psalm 139. God knows everything about you Verses 1-5 O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have ...

The Complete Jewish Bible you are looking at (notably, not a Jewish translation at all) is following the numbering scheme of the Masoretic Text where that text corresponds with 2:16-17. In most Christian English translations, this is labeled 2:14-15. (JPS Tanakh and Judaica Press Tanach also use the Masoretic numbering.) The difference arises because the ...

1 Corinthians chapter 13 is called the Hymn of Love and is thought to be a pre-Pauline hymn that Paul was quoting. Perhaps the most beautiful English rendition of the poem or song is the the King James Bible, but unfortunately it translates ἀγάπην as 'charity', rather that 'love'. The Hymn of Love, from the KJV, amended to speak of 'love': 1 Though I ...

I can think of one verse that is recited by Apostle Paul. Acts 17:28 states, “In him we live, and move, and have our being as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” Poetry was given in the Old Testament as an expression of the heart, mostly found in David’s heart, and that heart was also seen in Solomon. I think that we ...
