  • My son is dying, and the doctor says only a blood transfusion will help, but Jehovah hates transfusions. What do I do?

    Evidently you're not a Jehovah's Witness because of the language you use ( condemn my child to hell). Also, if my son was dying I certainly would not be on yahoo answers looking for help.

  • Christians. When Jesus before He was in the flesh, was God of the OT. Did folk pray to Him, worship Him and were blessed by Him?

On that day 120 disciples of Jesus became filled with Holy Spirit and started to speak with different tongues (languages). If a person speaking in tongue was not able to translate, then he did not understand what he himself was saying nor would others who was not familiar with the tongue. Paul at 1 Corinthians 14:13 encouraged those who had the gift of tongue to pray that they might also be able to translate and edifying all listeners. On the day of Pentecost they astonished their diverse audience by speaking in their native languages. The heart of the listeners were touched with the vital truths that they heard in their mother tongues, by the end of the day, the small group of 120 had grown to 3000.

God is the Originator of the family arrangement. Who would be better at giving us guidance that’s beneficial for the family. It’s important to think about the children and the challenges that could come about. As some children get older they may be plagued by unanswered questions about their background and by the need to be recognized by the parent that is absent. There’s a lot to think about even when you’re in a two parent home. Situations and circumstances occur that can be hard to handle. God want us to love and live a happy family life, we can do that by applying bible principles.

  • Relating to Morality: Is truth good? Where does truth come from?

    Truth is firm, trustworthy, stable, faithful, true, or established as fact. Jehovah is the God of truth. He’s faithful in his dealings, his promises are sure, because he can not lie. He judges according to truth, that is, according to the way things really are, and not on the basis of what they appear to be.

    Romans 12:2 “ Prove to yourself the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” So many people give up on the Bible before they can even benefit from it. Trying to understand the Bible when you have been taught lies about God is like try to put a puzzle together with the wrong picture as a reference. You may be able to put a few pieces together correctly but then give up in frustration when they don’t match the over all picture you were given. If you start with the right picture, though, the right pieces will fall in place. The Bible have to be read with an open mind and in context. When you pray to God for wisdom and understanding motivated by a sincere heart and really trying to find the truth, God will help you using Holy Spirit. When people are rightly disposed, God draw them to him and you began to understand the different figures of speech used in the Bible. The Bible uses similes, metaphors, hyperboles, theses make the Bible live. But, when failure to recognize when a figure of speech is being used can lead to misunderstanding. The Bible’s figures of speech are powerful for teaching and motivating. But, they don’t change truth, only enhance it. Jesus taught by using many illustrations.
