Pleased overall; a few caveats

Only the Word of God is inspired. Commentaries are not. As an older Christian who has read and taught the Bible for many years, I can say there is much good to glean from this resource. It adheres to the fundamentals (that’s foundational basics to friends who think “fundamentals” is a bad word), but there are areas where I disagree (such as Bible translations; I choose the KJV above all others, the writer(a) does/not...things that are different are not the same). That said,
a) I “eat the meat, and spit out the bones”;
b) I skip reviews from hobbyhorse atheists and liberals who are trying to sell unbelief, not because of any hard refutation, but because “unbelief” is a religion all its own - Bible Christianity is not a “religion” (man-made), but a RELATIONSHIP. Skeptics will never grasp this (see 1 Corinthians 2:14); and finally,
c) a person needs to get saved - have a genuine conversion experience - in order to “rightly divide the Word of truth.” Test a teacher’s assertions in light of the Scripture. What might seem “arrogant” from a teacher may simply be a weariness of bad doctrine (the modern tongues movement; “repenting” of ALL your sin - which in truth is a product of progressive sanctification, NOT justification). A lot to chew on...but this resource is worth a go.

Fixes that should be made

The app is great but I think their are some fixes that should be made. When the Bible scripture is linked and colored in blue, it is sometimes not the whole scripture said and takes you to a website and away from the app. I think you should put the whole scripture in the side note in the app instead of taking you away from the app to a website online. Also If you get off the app, and get back on, you lose your place in the question you are looking at and it takes you to the top and beginning of the article. I think you guys should keep the place of the reader so they don’t have a hard time finding where they left off reading at.

So Many Questions Already Asked, your Sure To Find What Your Curious About!

Well organized, so many questions and answers people have already asked, you'll find yourself wanting to check out more and more topics of things you've thought about in the past, forgot, but seeing all the different questions others have already asked, you'll easily find answers that spark your curiosity to check out more! The answers are put together by a team of people that have done, and continue to research and find information and their references to share with people who are curious and want answers in an easy to understand way. Do they say they know it all ? No, but this team of people are really trying to do their best and I feel they are seeking guidance from God for wisdom in how they come up with answers. After All they are accountable before God to not lead anyone astray. They are doing a great job and if you have something they don't know, that's ok, pray about it and ask God to give you wisdom and seek God above all anyway, this is a good basic beginning place to get some basic questions and answers.

How is the Christian religion different from all the other world religions? Does the Bible contain error, contradictions, or discrepancies?

Covering a myriad of questions about God, the Trinity, salvation, the Church, the End Times, theology, prayer, sin, relationships, and eternity, this is a handy apologetics resource for seasoned believers, new Christians, and anyone seeking concise answers to these vital questions.

Written with the commonalities of all believers in mind, these questions are answered from a non-denominational point of view, addressing many of the predominantly held beliefs of modern Christians.

What is a Christian worldview?


It drives me crazy how inconsistent many Christians are with their worldview. Many Christians claim to believe in God and to trust the Bible as being God's Word, yet, as soon as the Christian worldview stands in the way of something they want to do, it gets thrown out the window, only to be recovered the next time it becomes convenient. This is the lukewarm faith Jesus spoke of in Revelation 3:16. I, too, would rather have people be hot or cold. If they are hot, I am ready to partner with them in declaring and living the truth. If they are cold, I am ready to attempt to reach them by speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). If they are lukewarm...? [Insert vomiting sound here.]

A worldview is, simply, how we view the world. Our worldview impacts every area of our lives, sometimes purposefully in that we intentionally base our decisions on it, and sometimes ignorantly in that it impacts us even when we are not consciously thinking about it. Our worldview is a core set of beliefs/values that determines how we view everything else in life. The core of a worldview is made up of the answers to the following questions: (1) Why are we here? (2) What is wrong with the world? (3) Can it be fixed? A Christian worldview would answer the questions: (1) God created us. (2) Sin. (3) Yes, through Jesus Christ.

God created us for a purpose. God created us in His image so that He could have a meaningful relationship with us. God designed us so that we would be ideal stewards over His creation. This aspect of a Christian worldview impacts how we view and treat other people. Does human life have any value? Should human life be treated different from other forms of life? Why should I be loving, kind, and compassionate towards other people? We were created in order to have a relationship with God. Life has no true meaning or value without that relationship. Yet, so many treat God as an afterthought, something you talk about one day a week.

Sin is what is wrong with the world. This world, as wonderful and amazing as it still is, is completely screwed up. It is not completely what God intended it to be. While it still contains beauty, and still provides what we need for life, it is a warped and faded image of what God created. We brought sin and evil into the world. We are responsible for all that is wrong in the world. We are completely messed up and infected with a deadly plague (Romans 3:10-23). We are the problem, not the solution. This aspect of a Christian worldview should humble us and keep us from pride and arrogance. The world does not revolve around us. If it did, it would be upside-down, spinning backwards, and shaped like a rotten potato with all those weird-looking sprouts coming out of it.

God is the solution. God became a human being (John 1:1,14), lived a perfect life, taught us the truth, and died to pay the penalty for our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus' resurrection proved that His mission was successful. Through Jesus Christ, our lives can be redeemed and restored. Through Jesus Christ, one day, the universe and everything in it will be restored to glory and perfection. Through faith in Jesus Christ, all of our sins can be forgiven and we can have our heavenly eternal destiny secured. Do you see the pattern? It is all about Jesus! We are the problem, Jesus is the solution. Jesus accomplished it all and offers it to us as a gift, if we will just receive it in faith. How could such a tremendous sacrifice not completely shape our worldview? How could such an amazing gift not be the basis for how and why we live our lives?

Whether it is your marriage, your job, your politics, your hobbies, your morals, or your desires, your worldview should be the foundation. Nothing in your life should be separated from the fact that you are a Christian, a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. If the Christian worldview is true, it demands our all. We should be on fire for God. If the Christian worldview is false, it should be completely ignored. We should be as cold as the south pole. What should be done with lukewarmness? The same thing the whale did with Jonah.

Got Questions

Got Questions is a conservative EvangelicalChristian ministry based on a question-and-answer format focusing on many of the big questions surrounding Christian doctrines, general religion, science, and what the Bible says about such things. It was founded by S. Michael Houdmann in February 2002. The website claims to have over 600,000 questions answered, and says that 75% of all questions asked will be answered "instantly."

Point of view[edit]

Got Questions is written from a typical conservative Evangelical point of view. To no surprise, Got Questions denies Darwinian evolution,[1] supports Young Earth Creationism and seems to be highly skeptical of anthropogenic global warming.[2] The ministry is also highly supportive of Zionism.[3]

Further the website claims that "Secularism permeates all facets of our society."[4]Of course Christianity would never do that. Also, Got Questions has apparently found the foolproof methodology of proving Christianity to be the only real correct religion among the approximately 4000 which exist today.[5] This haphazard "framework" usually misrepresents every position that conflicts with theirs, among them being that Agnostics don't believe in absolute truth, Hinduism being Pantheistic, and most importantly uses the Cosmological Argument as the ultimate "Gotcha!" in its supposedly conclusive proof. The more subtle errors usually revolve around simple philosophical aspects, the most blatant example being their claim that "absolute truth" is self-defeating simply because 2+2 = 4.[6][note 1]. This Straw man attempts to imply that philosophical belief systems can be absolutely proven as Arithmetical truth.

They are very critical about the Roman Catholic Church, referring to them as idolatrous non-Christians[7] despite being a site dedicated to answering and defending content in a compilation of books that Roman Catholics canonized.

Got Questions is written from a Calvinist point of view, although it does acknowledge there are other points of view that are within the realms of orthodoxy. Other fundie websites, of course, criticise Houdmann for his Calvinist view, with one of them awarding him a Skull and Crossbones award. [8]

Relative moderation[edit]

Being grounded in orthodox conservative Protestant doctrine, Got Questions is generally more moderate than the variety of fundies seen on the internet, like Jack Chick's ministry and jesus-is-savior. Its articles' tone is generally the most stable of the bunch. Got Questions is in line with big Evangelical lobbying groups like Focus on the Family: some of the views are nutters, but there is a modicum of maturity compared to isolated fringe groups.

This makes for a long list of stopped clock moments, including:

Thank God for SEO[edit]

Got Questions's branch of Christianity is not representative of the majority of Christendom in the world or throughout history. Its Protestant beliefs are at odds with those of the most historical churches, like the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. So why, then, is it almost always the first website that pops up when you search for a Bible question?

Part of the answer is that Got Questions does good Search Engine Optimization. As a result, despite representing a small minority of Christendom, it ranks higher than comparable sites like Catholic Answers.

“”So, we began to pray, how can we prevent people from visiting these unbiblical sites? In response to our prayers, God led us to search engine optimization. ... God has blessed our efforts...

GotQuestions.org Podcast Episode 36- The Joys \u0026 Struggles of Answering Bible Questions w Gino Geraci

Is it Wrong to Question God?

Questions are something a teacher normally expects from their students. There may be a problem if the teacher does not welcome or tends to avoid questions. In fact, good questions would likely lead to innovative ideas that ultimately help resolve a problem. I believe a great teacher should take delight in the questions asked with respect and honesty.

There are many things we cannot understand in this life. Asking questions is, hence, a natural response when we are faced with unexpected circumstances. Coming to God, the Author of Life, with our questions and concerns, is, of course, not wrong.

Questions can help us realize our limitations (humility), show our deep cares and struggles (honesty), reveal our curiosity and desire to learn more (hunger), and express our aspiration and expectation (hope). It is okay to question God and He is neither surprised nor intimidated by our questions.

Question with Lamentation

The Bible actually records many examples of people having questions for God.

In his suffering, Job threw out question after question to God (Job 7:17-21). His struggles were so intense that, at some point, he rebuked God (Job 40:1-2) after receiving frustrating advice from his friends. God finally answered him with grace, and through that personal conversation (Job 38–42), Job acknowledged the sovereignty of God and His unfailing love and repented (Job 42:1-2, 5-6).

Even King David and Jesus Christ asked the same question with lamentation: “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Psalm 22:1, Mark 15:34). It is a cry of humanity as a result of sin (our sin that was placed on Jesus). This mourning reveals our sincere, deepest longing to be with God at all times (Job 19:25-27). And this all goes back to the story in the Garden of Eden.

The very first question God asked for humanity is, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9). Since the Fall, humans are separated from God and can no longer be in His holy presence. The same question resonates with us today as if God is asking, “Where are you? Are you with Me?”

This may sound like a probing question, but it is essentially a loving question from God who always wants to be with us. Thank God, that’s not the end of the story — not only did He ask the question, but He has provided the answer in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Question with Passion in Seeking Christ

God is not playing hide-and-seek with humanity. Through the weeping prophet Jeremiah, God poured out His heart, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13). Jesus, himself, also commanded the disciples to keep asking, keep seeking, and keep knocking (Matthew 7:7-8), while James encourages us to ask God for wisdom (James 1:5). In the human perspective, life is a journey of seeking God (His kingdom, His will). In this pursuit, questions are obviously inevitable.

However, instead of humanity reaching out to God, the truth is that God has already reached out to humanity by becoming fully God and fully man, Jesus Christ. The Bible is the record of God seeking after humanity rather than humanity seeking after God. Therefore, the answer to our life’s questions, such as identity, origin, meaning, purpose, morality, and destiny, is ultimately found in Jesus Christ.

Questions That Lead to Christ’s Words

In the gospel, we can find multiple times how Jesus answered his questioners with powerful, life-transforming statements. Here, we see the examples of those statements from different conversations Jesus had with people from various backgrounds.

In response to the Pharisee, Nicodemus, Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God” (John 3:4-5).

In response to the Samaritan woman, Jesus said, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:11-13).

In response to Thomas, His disciple, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:5-6).

In response to Martha, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” (John 11:21-27).

In response to a young rich man, Jesus said “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me” (Matthew 19:16-22).

In response to his disciples, Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:23-36).

In response to the Scribes, Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 22:35-40)

What Does This Mean?

Regardless of our motives in questioning God, we have to know that God loves every questioner. In fact, God has invited us, “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord (Isaiah 1:18). Our questions matter to God. And when our questions are driven by hunger and thirst for righteousness, Jesus promises that we will be satisfied (Matthew 5:6). What we should always remember is to ask every question with a respectful and humble attitude of faith, not out of pride and hatred.

Finally, let me conclude with this great, inspiring statement from Dr. Ravi Zacharias: “Behind every question is a questioner. Humans are searching for an answer when what we really need is a person, and that is the person of Christ, which God has provided.”
