True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-25-2012Question: Can a Christian be active in the work of God, but grow very little, because they are not regularly studying the Bible? Yes or No?Answer: YES! Christians often are unceasingly active in "Church" work, but grow very little, because they are not regularly and systematically studying the Word of God. A healthy Christian has a healthy appetite for the Word of God, an appetite satisfied by constantly feeding upon that Word. Jeremiah said, “Thy Words were found, and I did eat them, and Thy Word was unto me the joy and the rejoicing of my heart.” Jeremiah 15:16.

LLM Question for 6-25-2012, and, Is The Bible the INERRANT Word of God?

First the Question: Can a Christian be active in the work of God, but grow very little, because they are not regularly studying the Bible? Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-23-2012Question: Is The Bible the INERRANT Word of God? Yes or No?Answer: YES! The Greek word translated “given by inspiration of God” is “theopneustos”. This means “God breathed”. This is somewhat explained in 2 Peter 1:20-21, “Knowing this first, that NO prophecy of the Scripture is of any PRIVATE interpretation. For the prophecy came NOT in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were MOVED by the Holy Ghost.” The Holy Spirit is infallible. Men who wrote the Books of the Bible did not write their own ideas or doctrines. They were moved or “carried along” by the infallible Holy Spirit. Now, out of the 788 responses we received to this question, 90% of you agree that YES, The Bible IS the Inerrant Word of God! Therefo…

LLM Question for 6-23-2012, and, Is The Bible REALLY the Inspired Word of God?

First the Question: Is The Bible the INERRANT Word of God? Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-21-2012Question: Is The Bible Really the Inspired Word of God? Yes or No?Answer: YES! INSPIRATION IS THE ACT OF GOD BY WHICH HE COMMUNICATED HIS WORD IN WRITTEN FORM AND DIRECTLY CONTROLLED THE WRITERS SO THAT WHAT WAS WRITTEN (original autographs) WAS FREE FROM ERROR! The Bible is not only “inspired of God”, it is also inerrant, meaning without error in the original autographs. It is the most translated and distributed book before the invention of printing (1450 AD) in the history of the world! No other writing is close to the KJV Bible manuscript evidence. Over 5500 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin manuscripts, and over 1000 manuscripts in other languages...all before the invention of printing! Incredible to say the least! Now, out of the 801 responses we received to this question, 89.5% of you agree that YES, The Bibl…

LLM Question for 6-21-2012, and, The Bible, Which Version?

First the Question: Is The Bible Really the Inspired Word of God? Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-19-2012Question: Does the Codex Vaticanus, used by modern versions of the Bible, such as the NIV, end at Hebrews 9:14, and exclude the the Apostle Paul's Pastoral Epistles and The Book of Revelation? Yes or No?Answer: YES! Codex Vaticanus differs greatly from the Textus Receptus throughout the New Testament. The great Greek scholar Dean Burgon published in 1881 that in the gospels alone, Codex Vaticanus omits 2877 words, adds 536, substitutes 935, transposes 2098, and modifies 1132...making 7578 total changes! Codex Sinaiticus has 8972 changes from the Textus Receptus. Now, out of the 781 responses we received to this question, 72.7% of you got it right!

Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-17-2012Question: Is the order of God, for today, to the Jew first? Yes or No?Answer: NO! The careful student of the Book of Acts, and the “Acts” period, will learn that during the first nine chapters of Acts, God’s order was, “to the Jews, and not to the Gentiles”, (Acts 3:29-32 and Acts 10:28 and Acts 11:19). Then from Acts 13 to Acts 28:28, God’s order was, “to the Jews first and also to the Gentiles” Acts 13:46; Acts 18:5-6; Romans 1:16, and Romans 11:11-30. Then in Ephesians and Colossians, Philippians, Titus, and 2 Timothy, written after the close of the Book of Acts, God’s order was NO LONGER “to the Jews first.” Now, out of the 735 responses we received to this questi…

LLM Question for 6-17-2012, and, Why the Whole of Creation Groans in Pain

First the Question: Is the order of God, for today, to the Jew first? Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-14-2012Question: Does the theory of evolution, which states that man is and has been ascending, explain why the world is in worse condition and misery now than ever before? Yes or No?Answer: NO! The theory of evolution preaches that man is improving in all ways, but then fails to explain adequately why man finds himself weak, poor, miserable, distressed, corrupt, perishing, and it fails to explain why he is so utterly helpless to lift himself from this state. Not only that, but it fails to explain his inherent sense of blameworthiness; but instead insists he has no cause for a "guilt complex." "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" Romans 8:22. Now, out of the 771 responses we received to this question, 75% of you got it right!

Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-12-2012Question: Christ, in heaven, is the only priest that any believer needs. True or False?Answer: TRUE! By His death Christ brought an END to the carnal ordinances, divers baptisms, and meats and drinks, of Hebrews 9:10. Colossians 2:13-16. “Let no man judge you” in these things. Colossians 2:16. The religious program imposed upon Israel was the SHADOW of things to come, but the BODY is Christ. Colossians 2:17. Hebrews 10:1-10. Christ’s death brought the END of the Law, with its ceremonies, the end of a special order of religious priests. Calvary is the only altar any sinner needs and Christ in heaven is the only priest that any believer needs. Hebrews 9:24. 1 John 2:1-2. 1 John 1:7-9. Now, out of the…

True or False?Answer: TRUE! Someone has said, if, in Galatians 2:1-14, Peter was a Roman Catholic, Paul surely was a Protestant. Peter had absolutely NO apostolic authority over Paul.

True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 6-8-2012Question: There is no Bible proof that the Apostle Peter was in Rome to establish a Church, or for any other purpose. True or False?Answer: TRUE! Can any Roman Catholic prove by the Book of Acts, in the Roman Catholic Bible, that the Apostle Peter or any of the other Eleven Apostles ever left the land of the Jews to preach to Gentiles? The Apostle Peter sent a greeting from Babylon, (and yes, it was the actual Babylon) in 1 Peter 5:13, but he never sent a greeting to Rome or from Rome, so far as there is any Bible record. There is no Bible proof that Peter was in Rome to establish a Church or for any other purpose. Now, out of the 794 responses we received to this question, 81.3% of you got it right!
