The Great Questions Thread: The Purpose, please Read before posting! Thank you! Where I alone get to give the Questions, and whomsoever [*] will are to Answer in charity [1 Cor 13] according to Scripture [KJB, preferred]. Please quote the Question being responded to in all cases. Thank you! Please be aware that if any do answer any given Question posted by myself, I may ask you, the specific responder(s), to answer another Question or Questions in follow up, in as many successive Questions as needful to get to the root, bottom and core of the Questions intent. Any do not have to answer the follow up Question(s), but if refused, which is ok, others may respond in their stead, but only if the person chooses not to answer the subset Questions, and these are always to be given to help us all have greater clarity in the Scriptures, and so to all, please do not feel that this is in any way an interrogation, though I may press a little or much, and squeeze a bit, yet through it all, it is so that there may be the Light of Heaven shed abroad unto all. Main Questions to all participants and/or responders are to be in Bold Green, and will be given with a numerical number in Bold Red ,  and so on. Secondary, Tertiary, etc Questions directed to specific responders will be given the same numerical number in Bold Red, but followed with an Alphabetical ordering in Bold Blue (A), (B), etc. For example, the latter type will look like  (A) followed with the subset question in Bold Green. This will help differentiate the two main types. Some Questions will be designed to be easy, and some will be designed to be thought provoking, intense and to thoroughly test why you believe what you believe and to see if what you believe lines up with the Scriptures perfectly, or if there needs be adjustment upon our part [yes, I include myself ], and other Questions will be given for the simple purpose and pleasure of a "Treasure" hunt in the Scriptures, for therein those pages great wealth is to be found by those diligently seeking it for the Glory of God! [can ya' dig it?] New Questions will come along was we go, and the New Question will always be the main focus once it is given, though if necessary, an older Question can still be responded to, but please be sure to quote the Question being responded to for all responses, as that will help to eliminate any confusion in responding. Thank you! No Question is meant to unnecessarily offend, though in some cases certain Questions and even possibly the Answers from the Scripture will necessarily offend some due to the nature and content of the Question, and the Bible being what it is: Hebrews 4:12 KJB - For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. In those instances, do not look to me, but to the Scripture to see where we are in relation to it, and are we grieving the Holy Spirit in some manner and where are we in our immediate relationship to Christ Jesus, yea even to the Father also in all matters of faith and practice, and if so being, any of us are found to be out of harmony in any way, small or great, through our praying and searching the Scriptures, let us submit to it/Him, even if it means we have to admit we have held to an erroneous or misguided belief or practice. I ask no man to follow me, but ask that like as I, we ought always follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. Therefore, if we be in any error, let us humbly turn from it when we know to do so, as we are each individually convinced and convicted by the Holy Spirit Himself, and let us then accept the Truth, which is all the more precious when we receive it from Jesus in the stead of error. What Love the Father gives us in Jesus! *whomsoever, may also include myself, occasionally. Question  to follow.
