  1. PS: i started reading this chapter again and now i've got another problem: Matthew Chapter 4 Verse 1: i may be very naiive, but i'd rather ask any way: There seems to be an agreement between the Lord and the devil. i mean, although we hear that the devil is the fallen angel and all that, but according to such texts, doesn't it seem that the devil is following God's will? i mean, in this instance, it seems to my humble mind that the devil is getting employed by the Spirit to tempt Jesus Christ. What do you think? Have a great time and looking forward to your insights. Totoo
  2. Greetings all i've been reading the Good Book and i came across this in The Gospel according to St. Matthew: 4-4 : Can someone clarify and explain what this really means, please? Of course, i think i get the first part about 'bread', but what does 'every word' refer to? Is this referring to the entire Holy Bible and does it merely mean that we should live according to what is set there for us? i cannot take the 'word' as Jesus Christ, can i, since there it is mentioned: 'every' and there is only 'one' Christ. But then thinking about the context of this quote, this is in reply to hunger. i am confused. Thank you so much for your time and kindness. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  3. Dear Jordan, Thanks for your kind link, i will take a good look and i hope to get the chance to hop on that bus along and learn. Cheers and best wishes, bless your heart, Totoo
  4. Dear Alan, i am very grateful for your kindness. i totally understand and can identify and i apologise. i did not mean to say the good Pastor was wrong, mistypes and misprints happen all the time, but as i confessed to John, i have been too stupid to believe, and i hope you will pardon me for that and for my impatience. i will try harder and again, many thanks for your feedback and assistance. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  5. Ahhh, that was so stupid of me! Thanks John, i'll be more careful Bless you all Totoo
  6. Dear Alan, Once again, many thanks for your kindness. i've got a problem right from the very start, i hope it's a good thing. i have got, as it says, a King James Version of the Holy Bible right here on my desk. I purchased it online from a Chinese online store. It has been published by: Christian Art Publishers.2017. I have been using this since it arrived in the mail, and never doubted it. But now the first assignment according to the Bible Course is to study Tim: 3: 10 - 17. There is no Verse 17 in my Good Book and it ends in a rather long verse 16, compared it with other verses above it. Is there a misprint in the Bible Study course, or is my Bible faulty? How can one ever know if one's Bible is correct!? Thank you very much for your time, and may the Lord bless your hearts, Totoo PS: i must add, i just checked my PDF KJV of the Holy Bible, and just like my physical Bible, there is no Verse 17! So i gather there could be a mistype or misprint in this:
  7. Thanks a lot DaveW, i've already downloaded 'The Genesis to Revelation Bible Course' Alan suggested above and i've started reading. i will try to reach Brother Sargent's books in a bit. Thank you so much for your kind replies and time. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  8. Thanks a lot Alan, i'll check them links out right away. Your kind help and assistance is much appreciated, heartily. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  9. Dear John, As always, very thorough and kind with your time, thank you so very much and bless your heart. Well, as i have just replied to our other member NN above, i don't think it is a good idea to order physical books from abroad, you might like to take a quick read at what i mentioned there about my humble life here and all i've had to go through. PDF or epub digital format books are easier to pass around and obtain. Having said all that, just now i was lucky to receive a number of studies on the Bible from different publications and about different books of the Holy Book from an online friend i found a few days back. He has been able to find many epub format e-books for me. He is Chinese and he was saying that even he cannot order a physical book from abroad! As for the differences between the Bibles used, well, i do have a KJV of the Bible here on my desk, and whenever there is a reference to the Bible, i can simply open up my own Good Book and read the book for myself rather than depending on their references, but thanks for the heads up As you know, John, i would like to come to an understanding through research and ponder, rather than listen and follow without any thought. i know i may not be intelligent nor wise enough to grasp everything right away, but i am sure i can rely on good friends and helps such as yourself and Alan and other kind people here and i will ask questions or i can put forth what i have come to understand from a study and see what you kind people think on it. i was listening to your sermon, John, the other day, and you were talking about 'Stewards of the Lord,' and i liked it so much, but then arose the question, what is a 'Steward of the Lord'? What are the duties and responsibilities of such a one? i hope you will clarify that in your coming sermons, or you might have, but i haven't had the chance to see it yet. Thanks again, my man and take good care of yourself for us sinners. Bless your heart, Totoo
  10. Dear NN, Well, i must say, i am humbled and very grateful for your kind offer and also for your time and patience to reply to my questions. i do not think it is a good idea to send me actual books, but if you can find any books in PDF, they are all welcome. As you have wisely guessed, it may not be without trouble to receive books, especially religious books here. As a matter of fact, life has been super difficult for me here, as a Persian guy, with all the politics going around about Persia (Iran - poor translation for Persia, politics, i guess, when they say 'Iran', one forgets the millennia history and culture!) and all, after living here for about 13 years, i still have not had the chance and opportunity to obtain a resident's visa, nor a work permit, nor any other human right, i'm always at home and try to stay away from anything. Before last Christmas, i also kept away from any religious thought and beliefs, too. But then things changed. Now i want to be a good Christian and i don't think i could ever be one wholesome Christian if i cannot grasp the Holy Bible and the teachings and precepts there. The Holy Spirit and The Lord have graced me, but i have no experience whatsoever and as i have said before, this website i trust and the Holy Bible and nowhere else to go to for help. You people have all been very comforting and helpful, bless your hearts. Thanks again so very much. Totoo
  11. Dear John, Once again, many thanks for your kind help and guidance. I couldn't find that book, but i have managed to find this: Is this in any way the same and helpful? Thanks for your kind feedback and assistance. Bless your heart, Totoo
  12. Dear Alan, Thanks very much for your kind advice and suggestion, i trust you and John very much and i believe to be in very kind and helpful hands here. i will follow John's suggestions and hopefully the Lord will also bless us all with the true knowledge and light of the wisdom within the Word of God. Bless your heart, Totoo PS, i have been looking for books and publications from Baptist churches and publications, unfortunately they are hard to be found here in China.
  13. Greetings, I wonder if it is a good idea to start studying the Bible from The Old Testament through to the end or to start from the New Testament first and then go back to the Old? Thank you for your time, Totoo
  14. Greetings, i have been able to find a free online self study course here: http://dpmobc.org/course/ i hope it's good and trustworthy, your kind opinions, please. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  15. Greetings, Following Pastor John Young's kind suggestions, i started searching on the internet for the books and resources, i came across thebible.org and this: https://bible.org/passage which is a link-list of the books of the bible and by clicking on each link one is guided to another list related to that book where, for example, for the book of Matthew, you get: https://bible.org/book/Matthew Which is a whole page of links to, as it seems, audio recordings of sermons on that topic. All seems to be good and fine, my question is: Can i trust the bible.org resources? Does anyone here know anything about this site? Below is that website's Docrinal Statement: Doctrinal Statement Overview Bible.org is a broadly evangelical website with free access to the NET Bible with 60,237 translators' notes and a collection of thousands of biblically based articles, Bible studies, sermons, and various other trustworthy Bible study resources. Our authors are carefully scrutinized for their faithfulness to accuracy and truthfulness in interpreting scripture. We believe there are core essential beliefs that are fundamental to our faith and we strive to ensure all of our resources remain faithful and consistent to those foundational biblical beliefs. We also understand the broader doctrinal issues we deal with at Bible.org will have a range of interpretations within the Christian community and believe we should grant one another grace in interpretations of the non-essential beliefs. In fact, our resources are here to help one another establish a biblically sound theology and to grow and mature in our Christian faith and understanding of God and His Word in a community of grace. If we have posted something you believe should be reviewed for appropriateness, biblical accuracy, or theological soundness for posting at Bible.org, please e-mail us with your comments.The possibility always exists within thousands of resources we may have overlooked or missed something in the review process. Thank you. Here are our essential beliefs at Bible.org THE BIBLE We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. When we say inspired and without error, we mean we believe this to be verbal, plenary, infallible, and inerrant throughout. GOD THE FATHER We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. GOD THE SON We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now sits as our High Priest and Advocate. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. MANKIND We believe that human beings were created in the image of God but fell into sin and are therefore lost. Only through personal faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. SUBSTITUTIONARY DEATH OF CHRIST We believe that the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ through faith are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God. THE CHURCH We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through personal faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is Head. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and that every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs. ESCHATOLOGY We believe in the bodily return of Jesus, and the bodily resurrection of the dead—of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
