English is the largest vocabulary language that the world has ever invented (~750,000 words). The Hebrew language has one of the smallest vocabulary languages at ~3,000 words. This creates problems with translations when going from the smallest vocabulary language to the largest. English is a factor of 250 times larger, so we have to anticipate issues with translations. All Hebrew nouns have multiple literal definitions whereas English only has one or two. This further complicates things, so the verse context is very important in determining which definition to use. As a general rule, do not use only one Bible translation. And it's not a coincidence that the three largest vocabulary languages having over half a million words, Japanese, Korean and English, are also the languages that have the most debates about the Bible stories.
We recommend using Bible Gateway (or Bible Hub) when referencing scripture verses because it provides hundreds of different translations and verse references at the bottom of the page. This will help the reader in determining the true meaning of the verse. We recommend the English Standard Version (ESV), the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) or the Pre-1984 NIV version hardback book.

Our mission is to reach skeptics with the truth about the person of Jesus Christ using empirical evidence, statistics and facts in conjunction with sound Biblical doctrine to help make an informed, eternal decision for God. Our broader objective is to forewarn the uninformed by shedding light on future events through Biblical prophetic signs.
Eternal life begins the moment we believe in Christ alone for our salvation and at that moment, we are born of the Holy Spirit. Once you become a believer, there is nothing you can do to lose your eternal salvation. God had to make easy, otherwise we would have messed it up.
Some of us have never read the Bible and mostly what we know is hearsay. our intention is to speed up the theological knowledge process by providing a condensed, easy to read format. The Internet has shifted the traditional Church Missions to an online outreach. We have created a more effective and efficient way to deliver God's truth to the masses. Our objective is to offer a one-stop shop for knowledge transfer which took over half a century to amass. Some page sections include a mathematical approach to illustrate that these events occurred just as recorded in the Bible. We embrace this method since math provides concrete proof without bias. Another motivation was to provide a place where we can minister the truth to loved ones by providing answers to their biblical questions.
“Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to come at all.”

"What's true will never contradict what's true. Article 2 of the Belgic Confession, based on Psalm 19, Romans 1, and several other texts, declares that God has given us two reliable revelations: the words of Scripture and the facts of nature. Thus, it would be impossible for the facts of nature ever to contradict the words of the Bible.
