Demons are one of the most controversial topics in the Bible and in modern medicine. There are many beliefs about demons, but most of them are built on myth, legend, and hearsay. The word demon is used as an all encompassing definition that applies to all of the following terms: Evil Spirit Unclean Spirit In this study, we're going to take an in depth look at the origin of demons according to the Bible. The Origin of The Shed The Shed were well known throughout the Middle East as powerful spirits.

Shacking Up and Fornication – Final Thoughts

Shacking Up and Fornication – Final Thoughts

Sex & Sexuality
I figured I’d share my final thoughts on the issue. I’ve taken a lot of criticism for challenging the accepted church tradition of the word meaning “sex before marriage”, but I continued to explore the Bible to find the ACTUAL meaning behind the word. I looked at the Hebrew, the Greek, and the root of the English word, the Latin language. All of these languages played a role in the translation of the King James Bible into English. Please keep in mind that this entire study has been a progression of thought and not one single conclusive argument. If you want to read any of the previous studies you can find them below: The Truth About Shacking Up Fornication vs. Sex Before Marriage Sexual Situations According To The Bible In this final post on the subject
Fornication vs. Sex Before Marriage

Fornication vs. Sex Before Marriage

Sex & Sexuality
Sometimes it’s good to revisit old myths about the Bible. Many people unknowingly teach wrong things about the Bible, even though they may be very sincere. I’ve written about this topic before in my post, The Truth About Shacking Up. It is true that the English word fornication means “sex before marriage”. However, the Bible was not written in English. Both the Hebrew and Greek words have a much deeper and much more profound meaning. Hebrew – zanah (play the prostitute) Greek – porneia (fornication, immorality) Latin – fornix (vaulted archway, cellar) I talked about the significance of these words in the previous post so I won’t go over it again this time. However, I will point out that vaulted archways and cellars are where prostitutes hung out in Rome. The rea
The Meaning of 666: The Mark of The Beast In The Bible

The Meaning of 666: The Mark of The Beast In The Bible

Bible Q&A
Will we know the mark of the beast (666) when we see it or will it be an invisible mark that can only be seen by supernatural beings and God? Today’s article was inspired by a comment that I received: “The mark of the beast will be invisible to us, only to be seen by the supernatural. The mark in your forehead is your decision, choice, allegiance (active sinner or repentant) and the mark in your hand is your works, how you live your life. (sinning or seeking forgivness) The devil will know who has his mark and Father will know who has his. Ezekiel 20:12. Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them. What are the Sabbaths you may ask ? – Truthy1 What Is The Purpose of The Mark?
What Does The Word Hypocrite Really Mean?

What Does The Word Hypocrite Really Mean?

Bible Q&A
Even before I became a Minister, I had issues with people who assumed that Preachers are supposed to act a certain way, based upon public misconception. There seems to be an expectation of perfection when it comes to people who do God’s work, as if the laws of nature no longer apply to us. People tend to forget that we are people too, and we are far from perfect, although many Preachers would like to portray their “perfect” lifestyle. I put “perfect” in quotation marks because its just an act for the most part. Jesus was the only sinless man to walk this earth. We all have a past, and our past is what brings us to the point we are at now. Most people don’t know what a hypocrite truly is, but there are quite a few hypocrites that hold the office of Preacher. Most peop

Race Relations In The Bible: The 12 Tribes of Israel – Part 5

Race In The Bible
Who were the Hebrews? What nationalities did they consist of? Why isn’t this taught in Sunday School? We’re about to answer a few questions and probably create a few new question in the process. With that said, let’s get to it: The Twelve Tribes of Israel In Part 4 we looked at the parental ethnicities of all of Jacob’s wives and sons. It is these same sons that will come to be known as The Twelve Tribes of Israel. So let’s take a look at each of the twelve sons and see who they chose as wives. 1. Reuben (Hebrew + Syrian): When the other brothers decided to kill Joseph, it was Reuben that intervened. According to scripture, Reuben slept with Bilhah, but the name of his wife is not mentioned. The sons of Reuben were: Hanoch (Hebrew + Syrian + ?) Phallu (Hebrew
