Bible Answers – Life is full of questions
Are you searching for Bible answers? Does God exist? Who is Jesus Christ? What is going to happen to me when I die? What is God s will for my life? The Bible answers these questions and many more! If you have Bible questions, visit GotQuestions.org to receive a personal answer.

The Bible is God s “how to” manual for our lives. It tells us how to know God and what God expects of us. The Bible instructs us on how we can have our sins forgiven and live an abundantly-fulfilling life. The Bible declares how we can be forgiven of our sins and promised an eternal home in Heaven when we die. The Bible proclaims the love of God for us and God s desire to have a meaningful relationship with us through Jesus Christ.

Bible Answers – We can understand God s Word
God wants us to have Bible answers and He wants us to be able to understand His Word. God s Holy Spirit, who dwells inside of everyone who places their faith in Jesus Christ, promises to help us understand the Bible. John 14:26 tells us, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 declares, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God is the ultimate author of the Bible and the best way to understand any book is to ask the author. God promises to provide wisdom and understanding to anyone who asks. James 1:5 proclaims, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
