  • How do we know if/when a Bible verse is directly applicable to us and when one isn’t?

    I.e. 2 Timothy 4:9, Paul told Timothy to be diligent to come to him quickly. We can not follow that one... A difficult one is found in 1 Corinthians 11. Was the command for women to have their heads covered a cultural command (for that time and place) or a command for all believers from that point on?

March 2014 Awake magazine: "In the Bible account, each of the six creative days could have lasted for thousands of years… God had already created the universe, including a lifeless planet Earth, by the time the first creative day began… Evidently the six creative days were long periods during which Jehovah God prepared the earth for human habitation… The Bible account of creation does not conflict with scientific conclusions about the age of the universe… According to the Bible, Jehovah God created all the basic kinds of plant and animal life, as well as a perfect man and woman who were capable of self-awareness, love, wisdom, and justice… The kinds of animals and plants created by God have obviously undergone changes and have produced variations within the kinds.

When Herodias married Philip she was marrying her own father`s brother. 9. What precipitated the arrest of John the Baptist was that Herod Antipas (another of Herodias’ uncles) talked Herodias into leaving her husband (his brother) in order to marry him (Mk 6:17)—thus compounding the incest, as well as violating Lv 18:16.
