"I wanted to tell you how much I love your website. My pastor directed me to an article on your site about whether God is male or female. Someone had told me that since men and women are made in God's image, God is neither male nor female, but our human minds can't grasp that, so we assign God a male identity. I asked my pastor if he agreed with that and along with his answer he included a link in his email to an article on your site. Since reading that article, I have just been clicking on random page and reading various questions and answers. What a great site! (I told my pastor too how much I like the website.) I am a born again Christian, but rather immature in my faith, and I am finding your site very informative and helpful. Thank you very much for your ministry."
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the clear and concise format of the answers to some of the everyday questions I have had to deal with in ministry. I love having your website as a resource which I can refer others to when I am asked about a particular subject rather then doing a pile of research myself. It has been great in that it explains things in terms that most lay people have understood and it provides solid truths that I can bring in to discussion with others. Frequently, the only time people respond to websites is with complaints, so I wanted to take this opportunity to pass along blessings!"
"I thought you guys would want to know that 7 years ago, I experienced a total change of heart and mind toward God and immediately had an insatiable hunger to know more about God. I found GotQuestions.org through Google and I must have read everything on the website. I mention this because it was through this website I first understood what it meant for Jesus to die on the cross and be raised from the dead. I finally understood what I had heard all of my life: that Jesus is God and that He died for my sins. The light finally came on through your website. Many other questions were answered during that time through the site, but that one in particular was the one I still remember reading to this day. I can't thank you enough for that."
"I have been a believer in Jesus Christ for just over a year. Before the Lord saved me I used gotquestions for probably a year or two to answer the many questions I had. I still use your site occasionally and can see how biblically sound it is. I thank God for your ministry and pray He blesses it greatly. God bless all involved with gotquestions!"
"This is an absolutely brilliant website. I have been using it for the past year and have been absolutely blessed by it. I am naturally an inquisitive person and have so many questions and this website has been like sweet honey to my soul! Thank you so much for taking the time out to produce such a wonderful service that is blessing so many people, especially myself! Thank you and your team for the time taken to search the scriptures and write the answers in a way that is understandable! Thank you thank you thank you! May God bless you and your team richly!!!"
"Hello, I kind of stumbled on your web page on the internet. I forgot what I was researching but at the same time I had been wanting an online type of Bible study with a site that I could trust that would take me straight to God's Word. I am happy to say that I LOVE your site - it answers SO MANY of my questions and not from man's point of view but it takes me directly to the scripture that I need to read so I can see it for myself. It has MANY interesting topics and I am a reader so it really keeps me interested. I am extremely happy for finding your site. So today I wanted my husband to see it so I figured that I would copy and paste part of something I had read onto my facebook page, then I see it had a link to your own fb page that i could "LIKE". I did Like it and also shared the page on my husband's Facebook wall. (He and I had been having problems about if we are told to pay tithes) - needless to say - I got the answer that I needed from reading about paying tithes - on your website. This site has helped me TREMENDOUSLY with my walk with Christ - I can't thank you enough for taking the time to put in the labor for creating such a page because I had MANY questions. I am reading what you post daily now. Thank you and God Bless You ALL!"
"I wanted to thank you and the team for creating this website. I am a struggling Christian who deals with the homosexuality issue. I was raised in a Christian home but in my 20s turned my back on the Lord and fell away, going head first into the gay lifestyle. It was a couple years of booze, drugs, and utter self-hatred. Many times I wanted to kill myself and a few times I attempted it. When I hit my rock bottom I finally turned my face back to God and asked if He would lift me out of my own personal hell and save me. And He did. Slowly over the last 7 years God has begun to work on my life from the inside out. I still struggle with the homosexuality issue and it was in looking for clarity on the subject that I found your website (I was wondering what the Bible said on bitterness and your site popped up).
Since then I have used your site to understand the Bible and my role in God's plan for my life. I have always felt that because of what I deal with that God loves me but more in a sense of how you love a difficult and unwanted family member. Today I read that nothing can unmake me a child of God and that He will be with me in all things...and now as I type this I am crying because He loves me and will keep me close to Him and even though I don't understand where He is taking me. I have really been trying to deal with the gay issue and that's causing me a lot of depression and hurt and anger in the last couple of years but I know that Jesus will be at my side and that one day I will be free. Thank you to you and your team for the insightful clear ways you present the Scriptures and issues without compromising what God had said. I will continue to use your site to study the word (I find reading the Bible confusing sometimes). Thank you and I hope God uses you to impact more people like me."
"Hey! So I never contacted anybody on this site, but your website was a contributing factor in my salvation 3 years ago. I thought I would share that. My pastor spoke today about the testimony of believers and I realized I never contacted anyone to thank them for this website and the service and people behind it. So thank you! I'm now in Bible College. A BIG Thank you!"
"Dear Got Q's, Your website has been a continual blessing to me since I first discovered it. It helps me sort through and understand better the difficult biblical doctrines and words used in the Bible. So, it is I who thanks you and looks forward to many more years of continued insight and edification. I also pass along some of the answered questions, both in printed form and through emails. Your site is one of my most cherished finds on the web for which I thank God and pray many blessings to you."
"Thank you for creating your wonderful website! My husband and I are Christians but still have a lot of questions that we are concerned about. We have considered speaking to our pastor, but just haven't gotten around to it yet. I was looking at your website today and found answers to most of our questions! It has brought joy to my heart and cleared up some confusing issues regarding salvation and other important issues. I plan to look up other questions and my husband also plans to look at the website tonight. Thank you again and may God richly bless your ministry!"
"Your website is extremely informative. I just finished reading some blogs from people who presume to know what the Bible teaches. All of these people just spoke a bunch of nonsense and used their own opinions to try and get their point across. It is nice to see a website that is backed up with Bible teachings. I have spent an enormous amount of time reading the information on your site. I absolutely love it and keep up the awesome work. I have done a lot of research by google searches, but everything is almost always biased opinions. Your website teaches people as close to the truth as I have seen, and you make it very clear that you are teaching what the Bible says rather than basing it on your opinions. Thank you! God bless you!"
"God Bless you all for providing me with so many answers! I personally would like to thank everyone at the Gotquestions organization who put out the effort to spread knowledge for us Christians, as well as non-beleivers. I've had many doubts and questions, but through praying and the answers I recieve from you guys, I have never felt closer to God before in my life. Although some questions are un-answered simply because our God is higher than our thinking, I will continue to put my faith in Him always. Because He's too good. So once again, thank you Gotquestions for all you do. To the whole staff, God bless you, and to the president God bless you as well! Peace!"
"My friend, who is fairly young in his faith, wanted to be able to answer questions people had been giving him about God's existence. He prayed that God would show him a website that would give him answers, but he couldn't find one when he searched for it on Google. The next day, he prayed again that God would show him how to answer for his faith, then as he went to type in 'go' for 'Google" his computer glitched and brought him to 'gotquestions.org' where he found the resources he needed. He had never been to or even heard of the website before! Praise God, and thank you for your website. God Bless."
"I just wanted to send an email letting you know how amazingly grateful I am to GotQuestions.org. I have grown up with a mother who loves the Lord with all her heart and has consistently shared Him with me. Unfortunately, I walked away from my faith in Jesus during my high school years, but God refused to let me go and and often whispered in my ear. FINALLY, about a few months ago I realized that it was time to come back and devote my life to Jesus. Guilt, shame, and doubt have attacked my sense of self and salvation since that moment. Here is where your website enters my life; you guys seem to have a question/answer that addresses every one of my fears and scripture to back it up. It has been extremely helpful to me and I'm just so happy your website exists. It is a tool for all people; believers and nonbelievers alike can make sense of things. I guess that is it. Thanks!!!"
"I am a new Christian and I have found your site through one of my friends. I should say, your site is a very good site and it has helped me grow in my faith! So many of my questions about the Bible have been answered! And these so called "bible contradictions" aren't contradictions at all! Your site is a very good site which helps believers (and unbelievers' questions too)! I feel like I would like to take my time to write you an email to thank you for making this amazing site! May the Lord bless you."
"I want to thank you form the bottom of my heart for this amazing work that you are doing for Godís Kingdom!!! Your website have been of such incredible assistance to me in my own witnessing. May God bless this website and all who are involved with it. But it has already been blessed and has Godís signature all over it!!! I love those who love God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and who do His will. Blessings!"
"I am so thankful for the thorough and indepth answer you provided to my question. It is so refreshing and gratifying to know of your presence on the internet and to be able to refer to your website for my personal spiritual edification and growth, but also to have the great joy of telling others about it and to encourage them to visit it for themselves. It is my prayer that our heavenly Father keep you firmly girded about with the spiritual armor needed to boldly continue your work in spreading the truth of his word."
"I want to express the deep spiritual satisfaction I get from reading the articles on your website. I want to let you know that GotQuestions.org absolutely rocks. I love reading all the articles on the site and my spirit rejoices in how the articles are firmly based on God's Word. It's through those articles that I get clear, Bible-based answers for many of my perplexing questions and get deep spiritual satisfaction from learning and knowing more about our precious Lord. I've come to trust the ministry and refer the site to others who are hungry for learning more about God and the Bible. God's blessings!"
"I've been poring over your site, with relief and heartfelt gratitude for the care and detail you have put into answering some difficult Bible questions. People tend to think that Christians-or anyone who would dare believe in the notion of God-are somehow ignorant, blind, and less rational than non-believers. I find your site so uplifting, and filled with truths that are logical and well-thought out. My dad, who is a preacher, has educated my family in the same subjects I see presented on your site, even teaching us to be aware of theories such as those of the pre-adamic race, etc, though even many pastors these days would be stumped by the subjects referenced. Your articles on the young earth theory are particularly well-written, so much so that I've stayed up entirely too late to read them and write you this e-mail. Your writers and website in general are a true rarity in this day and age, and I would be proud to worship alongside such wonderful, modern-day Bereans. I rarely find a Christian outside of my family who can talk in depth about such subjects with me (especially not those around my age-26), and just wanted you guys to know that you have been a true blessing to me tonight, and I will be glad to encounter you one day in heaven as your sister in Christ. I will be recommending your site to many."
"I have been using your site for 2 years now. Whenever I struggle over an issue of my faith or have a question on my devoted life to GOD as a Christian I turn to your site. Your answers are very well researched but most of all they are answered with compassion and love. That's wonderful. I know that GOD is working through every member of your staff! Thank You and GOD BLESS you all."
"I just wanted to let you know that I have been using gotquestions.org for some years now, and although I was just saved two months ago, all my research I had previously done helped me tremendously once I received Christ. I have to say that as a new believer, it is VERY easy to get led astray, and I know you can imagine that. I just wanted to give a hearty thanks to you and everyone who works so hard to answer our questions. I found my church through you, and I have never felt more at home with any group of people while I go to college away from home. They now are a part of my family! Your site has helped me so unbelievably much, and I truly cannot imagine where I would be without the guidance of your elaborate, thorough and accurate answers to so many important questions. I know I can always trust the answers I find on this phenomenal website. It has truly changed my life, and I could no longer bear not letting you all know! I have talked about this website so much, and have told anyone who might be interested about it. Thank you and may God bless you and everyone involved with gotquestions.org!"
"I just wanted to send you a quick Thank You. My faith has been shaken for years and years due to problems in my life. I have found no answers through local churches and the Internet searches I've done. Your gotquestions.org site has answered so many of my unanswered questions that I've had for years. It has also corrected a lot of misinformation that I've gotten from so called Christians over the years. Your site has me praying again, taking Jesus as my savior again, when I had lost the faith and my faith is back. If it wasn't for your site I would still be lost. I had prayed and prayed to find the answers I was looking for. I think God brought me to your site, to be reborn once again. Thank You again!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the site that you oversee. It is of great help to me concerning interpretations of the Bible. I am constantly looking towards your website as a resource for my understanding of the Bible. It has helped me immensely in my Bible competence and thus, my walk with God. So once again, thank you for your effort and time."
"Coming up on my 7 years of being born again and my 50th birthday, I wanted to take this time to say your ministry has been a integral part of my relationship with Jesus. So many times I've gone to your site for direction and research. In fact the new app is awesome and effectively easy to use. I used to have to cut and paste into a clipboard to use your responses as a witnessing tool and study tool before the iPhone. Wow! I praise God for you and your ministry and pray He advances you and your efforts. I will become a faithful donor as well and may confess I have not been. I hope this gives you encouragement that there are a mass of unknown voices/lives/souls you are reaching. I have used your material in witnessing to people all over the world. And you have made it that possible. Thank you for all you do for the kingdom and staying true to Gods word!"
"I have sought the truth in the Scripture for 30 years. You and the staff at GotQuestions.org have done an excellent job pointing out what the Scripture says on its own. No spin, no agenda. Just pointing to the Truth and let it speak for itself. Many Blessings!"
"I am sure you get many, many emails complimenting your website. Count me amoung them. Your site is very comforting and uplifting. I find that your writers absolutely have a gift from God. I write a daily devotion and use your site often for research. More times than not, I just link to your site from my devotion because I can never find the right words like you do. In about a month, I will be able to send a financial donation. Again, thank you so much for spreading Jesus Christ!!! Your site and writers are definately blessed by God Himself."
"Thank you so very much for your website Ė I discovered it just the other day and canít get enough of it! Iíve already told a few friends/family about it. Kudos to you and your team for such a great website Ė I love, love, love it!!!!! Thank you again for all the great information. I really feel like I can trust and believe in your website, as it follows my belief system (I am just a plain old Christian Ė donít follow any religion). It is the only website Iíll need now! God bless you, your family and team!"
"Praise God for your website. It has helped me for years now and as I grow, I can really appreciate the strong biblical foundation you get your answers from. Too many times today, answers come from peoples thoughts and feelings, but I love that your answers are the truth because they come from the only true source--the Word. Continue to do what you do...you have blessed me more than you even know."
"I would just like to thank you for taking the trouble of sending me your booklet "Now What?" Well let me tell you that I happenwd to stumble on your site by total accident in a time of my life when problems abound and after reading your articles and booklet it has brought me that one step closer to Christ and to finding out that he realy cares when we put our faith in him and bring him into our lives. Since I have been reading your articles there has been a major change in my attitude towards the bible which before I never beleived in as I had lived a life of a non-beleiver and atheist and now I just can't wait to get home from work in the evenings and pick up my Bible and read what God wants from me and how I can serve him and make up for the years that I put him out of my life. So once again thank you for helping me get that one step closer to our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you."
"I just wanted to send a brief "thank you" your way for your ministry and how it has enlightened, equipped and inspired me in mine. I am a pastor in NH and we started a church almost a year ago. God has truly blessed us in an area that has not had a true "Bible-teaching" church in many many years. The environment is very different to the environment that I had become most familiar with. I am originally from Virginia and served at 3 different churches there. I came across your site about 4 or 5 years ago (while I was pursuing another theological degree in NC). I found myself continuously searching your site to see what "Got Questions" had to say about a particular issue I was writing about or to help me in my Preaching course to explain something in layman's terms.
Since I have been out here in NH, I have found myself once again searching your site in order to better understand and to equip myself on how to teach our people about those "fundamental" concepts concerning the faith and leadership in the church. Thank you so much for allowing pastors like me to use your ministry as a wonderful help in their ministries. Please keep up the great work. Lastly, I so appreciate the way your writers approach their writings--never overly critical or opinionated but at times very direct when needed."
"I have been using your website since 2008, and I just want to say thank you! Several of my single friends and I have been conducting a Bible study group outside of our church since 2007 (we also attend our church's bible study!!), and anytime we have to research something, we go here. It started with single's questions, and progressed to questions regarding tattoos all the way to voting. I have to say it has been a great help to have it all there on one site, and the scriptures your site gives allows us to go to our own Bible and validate what is being said..it's a springboard really. I also want to thank you for updating the website with more questions/answers that are often hard to talk about in a church setting, but is often discussed very much in a more intimate setting.
I am now the president of my women's ministry at church, and have to deal with all types of women; some who have been in the church forever, and are still spiritually babes, some who just became saved, and desperately want all of their questions answered, unemployed women, rich women, married women, and even young women who are single, but have strayed away and have come back pregnant, broken spiritually, financially, and sometimes physically. For validation/confirmation on the answers I am ready to give, I always head back to this website. You have a real no-nonsense approach to the answers- they aren't holier-than-thou written, and they aren't "let me add my own take on the matter"- they are consistently written as "This is what God said; take it or leave it."
When discipling others, I think it's so easy to get caught up in what one thinks and try and project it to others. This has been a turn-off, and has not helped any one for so many years (talking for the Church as a whole). My pastor tells leaders in the church all the time "God doesn't need you to add to his Word- what it says it what it is." I just want to thank you again, and I pray I will be able to assist in your ministry financially very soon. Thank you again!"
"I just wanted to send a quick note to say THANK YOU for this amazing resource. I am a Christian brother spreading the gospel alongside you guys on the front lines of the digital age, and I've used your resources countless times to explain things to skeptics and non-believers. Your arguments that you put forth on such a varied amount of topics are always timely, scriptural and spot on in doctrinal truth. I am currently witnessing to a couple of men that I grew up with that have left the faith and now consider themselves atheists, and they have been pushing this Zeitgeist video. One of my first stops was your site, hoping you had researched and rebutted this. Your sound rebuttal of this video was very timely for me. Thanks GotQuestions.org!"
"Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for your website and all of your pastors. I have asked them some very tough questions, and they have always been able to give me an answer along with scripture to back it up. I have always received a response in a very timely manner as well. Your website has been a great tool for me. Thank you, and keep up the great work! God bless, a proud user."
"I was introduced to the site about 3 years ago by a pastor's wife. It was a very big help to me when I decided to seek the Lord more diligentlly. I have been visiting the site again recentlly and have noticed the increased diversity and volume of the questions being asked. People need the Lord and they want answers. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your service that extends to both believer, unbeliever, and unchurched. Thanks again for your commitment to serve, I love it!"
"Hello, I just wanted to send you a short email to say thank you for your ongoing ministry. My husband and I utilize your website quite often to read the articles posted. We have referred your site to many others searching for biblical truth and answers to common questions. I appreciate all the work that your amazing team has put into building such wonderful and informative website. Praying that your ministry will reach the masses and touch the lives of the lost. God speed!!!"
"I wanted to take the time to email you guys from gotquestions just to say I use your site all of the time and it always seems you're spot on and that is very rare in today's world. So, keep it up. I dont know if one or more people write your articles, but they are great. It is the only place I see rationality behind explanations. Not that I always find wrong explanations elsewhere, but most people are too sensitive to explain things properly and sacrifice general understanding in order to strongly argue against something else, if that makes sense. Anyway, thanks for the page, I'm an avid user, would be great if you told the writers for me."
"I've been reading your web site, and recommending it to others for a while now, and I just wanted to tell you how much I really appreciate the site. Your Bible-based answers to questions, many of which I have never thought of, are so interesting and informative. And some of the terms people ask about.....! I've heard of some of them through the years, of course, but some of them I have never heard of. No wonder people are so confused with so many ideas and philosophies out there. The devil is nothing if not prolific. Thank God that He provides web sites such as yours to teach the truth according to His word."
"I love and appreciate your website. It is easy to ask a question by inserting a keyword and seeing several answers pop up. The answers are short, scriptural, sensible, clear. I frequently use your website to answer honest seekers, skeptics, agnostics, atheists here in central Massachusetts. Usually I feel I fail to persuade but what do I know - I leave effectiveness to the Lord. I hope you don't change the layout, shut down, or move. You are a tremendous encouragement in my ministry. God bless you."
"I wanted to share what a blessing your mobile application of GotQuestions has been to my son and I. My wife of 33 years recently left us (temporarily we hope) and left us with many questions. Your answers are beautifully written, Spirit-led, biblically-based, and thorough yet concise. They contain essential truth that has brought encouragement and clarity to what we are going through, and have brought my son and I closer together as we study the same materials. Thank you very much, and please continue with your work. Blessings to you and yours."
"I just wanted to let you know much I appreciate your ministry. I just recently had a pastor friend of mine tell me about it and now I can't stop reading. Every question I have seems to be there and I check everything I read with the Bible. I can't find any fault with the answers given and because they go in depth, the Scripture is more clear when I go back to read and exegete the passages. I can't tell you how much this is going to help me in my ministry. I witness everywhere I go and can't stop. Even though I have been yelled at laughed at, I have a passion to reach the lost at all costs. With the information you have given, it will help me answer tough questions with more clarity. I just wanted to write and let you know how much this means to people like me. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!"
"Hello. I just wanted to say that I think this website is such a great tool for Christians and I am so appreciative of it. I have been a Christian since I can remember as my mom raised me with the faith. However after thoroughly studying the Word I do have questions that still pop up all the time. It is so nice to have the Internet available to me at any given time and I just wanted to say that I really really appreciate this website. For all of my controversial questions and thoughts that come to my head this website answers them in a precise and logical manner. It is because of websites like yours that my faith has grown. I just want to let you guys know of the great work you do and to encourage you guys to keep it up. Also when I get a job I want to contribute financially to this type of ministry because it is one that I have personally benefited from. However in the meantime I will do my best to remember you all in prayer. Thank you so much and may God bless you."
"Dear precious brother in the Lord, I do not have a question at the moment, but would like to share this wonderful testimony with you. My twin brother and I are 70 years old. We grew up with a very godly mother and we committed our lives to Jesus at a very tender age. We served God together as teenagers. A few years later my brother married an unbeliever and he fell right into the world. They lived it up, partying and never gave God a thought again. Unfortunately our ways parted. He and his wife went to live in West Africa and my husband and I went to South Africa to the mission field. I prayed for my twin for some 50 years. Since the invention of skype, I have been able to witness to him. I kept reminding him of God's love and His willingness to forgive. It was in God`s divine plan, that he "stumbled" over "gotquestions". He contacted me and told me full of great excitement of all the answers he had found on your website, and that he had committed his life to Jesus again and asked Him to forgive all his sins and become Lord of his life. He can`t stop studying your questions and answers. In fact, he has printed out some 1000 pages and filed them all carefully under the different topics. I am nearly bursting with excitement so that I have to share this with you. You are doing a wonderful work which has eternal value! May the Lord continue to use you as you minister to people throughout the whole world. I greet you in the precious name of Jesus."
"I just want to say thank you so much for your website! I have had a deep faith in the Lord for as long as I can remember and have been reading my bible since I was 8. The staff of GQ has done a wonderful job of presenting truth of scripture in a non-judgmental and non-hyper-religious way. My 17 year old son who has always loved the Lord but has had serious doubts about church and not much interest in the Bible frequents your site on a regular basis. For him to say that the site is really interesting and has him wanting to learn more...all I can say is God bless you and thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"First of all, I am a United States Marine. I signed up for the Corps in High School and left for Boot Camp a few months after I graduated...but before I did I was connected with this website, and clearly it wasn't just the website, it was the ones who created this vault of wisdom, using God's Word in truthfulness, not ashamed or altered. I gave my life to Jesus when I was 14 working for a marketing company in my hometown, my manager was a Christian. I knew then I was born with a purpose, and I would never be able to lie to myself and think that anything other than serving the Lord would make sense to me anymore. But I have struggled so much since then, going back and forth trying to become who He wants me to be, and I'm so tired of failing, and I don't want to leave this earth not knowing His true love and giving it to others, I don't want their blood on my hands because I didnt keep my own faith and lead by example. At times when I couldn't pick up the Bible because I was sick and tired of being beat down and breaking from everything, I would look at the weekly gotquestions email..and looking back, it kept planting seeds and reminding me of truth. I have lost so much fellowship with real Christians, and I do take fault, i will not make excuses, but I just want to thank you for what you are, because I hold on knowing there are ones out there trying to find the truth and bestow it unto those who ask and seek, you simply amplify Jesus' message with what you do. Thank you.
"Hi, I'm a seminary student working on my M.Div. I just wanted to let you know how much I have been encouraged by your website. I visit it frequently when I have a biblical question and I even often browse it aimlessly just to educate myself on different topics. It's so encouraging to know that there are Christians out there that 1. take the authority of the Bible very seriously and believe it is the only reliable source of truth and life, and 2. take being reasonable and educated about Christian beliefs seriously as well. One of my favorite phrases is "Truth is never threatened by question." I believe God's Word is truth and so I am able to ask as many questions about it as I can without ever worrying about "unhinging" or "subverting" my faith. It will remain true regardless. I've enjoyed learning more about God and growing a deeper love for Him through your website. I thought a "Thank you" was in order. So thanks and keep up your good and faithful service."
"Hello! I would like to say thank you for your website. It is honestly my favorite website on the whole internet. I am a Christian and I do go to church, but this website helps me understand so much more of the Bible I never thought I would. Thank you very much, it has increased my faith a lot. God Bless!"
"I just want to thank you and the contributors who make gotquestions.org possible. My father, a life-long Baptist is 95 and lives alone. Although he does still attend church regularly with my brother and his wife, the doctrines and worship style there are not feeding his spirit. I call Dad each night from my home in another state, and we have Bible study together on the phone. Gotquestions.org serves as our favorite resource when questions of interpretation arise. The comfort and inspiration we both draw from the Word is powerfully enhanced by your material. Please accept my most heartfelt thanks."
"Thank you so much for providing the Got Questions website. I don't remember when I first began using your website; but time and time again, I find myself repeatedly going to your site for understanding of certain concepts. Although I cannot say that I agree with every answer (and some things I just can't grasp the concept yet, I always feel confident that each answer is given by someone who has sincerely sought for God's help for understanding. There are times after reading and studying certain topics, after praying and seeking God's help, I still find myself unsure. I surf the web in search of information -- and then, I go to Got Questions to see if what I believe to be correct matches with what is found there. I'm not saying it very well -- but I just want to say thank you for providing this website. I appreciate it more than I know how to express. Thank you! May God continue to bless all of you who work hard to provide the world with God's Word and His children and others who are searching for the truth."
"I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for your website. What a great and informative forum to have biblical questions answered. I absolutely love perusing the questions and reading the answers; perhaps finally understanding many questions I've had about the Bible. Thank you again for a wonderful resource!"
"I would like to thank you for providing such an informative and helpful site and I would like to share my story with you that I have had using your website. A few months ago I was shown a movie called zeitgeist. In this movie there was so called "truthful" information concerning many different topics. One of which was religion, specifically Christianity. In this video it gave many reasons why Christianity is a false story and a hoax. While I was never close God and never went to church, I always believed that He existed. This movie really shook my faith and I started questioning everything that I have been brought up to believe. This led me into researching many topics one of which was the Illuminati, and that led me to your site. I never fully understood the Bible or its stories and I became interested, not because I was hoping to find God or reestablish my faith, but pure curiosity. I started out by looking up what the Bible had to say about the end of the world, and simply by going to the bottom of each page and clicking on one of the related topics. I started learning more and more about God, Jesus Christ, and His plan for us. For much of my life I have had depression problems and anxiety of being scared of death and dying. Through your webiste I have re-found my faith in God and now I trust that Jesus Christ has died for all of our sins and that as long as I keep my faith in him, I have nothing to worry about. I now come to your site for many questions that I need answered. All in all I just want to thank you for what you're proving to everyone. God bless."
"In searching for information throughout the web regarding answers to the Bible, I have not been able to find anything so in-line with the scriptures like your teachings. I appreciate your site and spiritual insight. I am very thankful to those that take time to answer these questions. I just wanted you to know that I recommend this site to lots of people and your work is not in vain. Thank You. God Bless. Love you all."
"I don't want to take much of your time because I am sure you are very busy. I found your website about a year or two ago and it has really changed my Christian walk and knowledge. I have asked about 4 or 5 questions now and was absolutely blown away by the responses. In my latest, everything was explained perfectly. I really love that you always use Bible verses to answer everything. The website and your staff are all great Christians and doing great work for the kingdom. Just wanted to take a minute and let you know how much I appreciate everything you do."
"Just wanted to let you know that this is one of the best sites I have been on for answering biblical questions. Your doctrine is sound and the answers are backed by great scriptures. I have been in the ministry for many years but have lived much of that time behind lies and secret sins. Recently all was lost to me. My home, my job, my marriage. Very little is left for me. I have had time to seek God again but had questions in so many areas that needed to be clarified. Your site is set up well, easy to use and has wonderful answers that are not so theological that they don't make any sense. Thank yo so much for all you do. Because of the answers that I received I know that God has forgiven me, I am forever saved, I have been able to forgive others, the Holy Spirit lives in me, restoration of my marriage is possible and so much more. Thank you so much!"
"I would just like to thank you for this amazing website that you have set up. It had been a real blessing to me and has answered so many questions that I could not find answers to anywhere else. I can't quite put into words how amazing it is as there is just such a vast amount of knowledge, wisdom and understanding to be gained by spending just 2 minutes on your website.
One of the most amazing things is that I have never read anything that has been unbiblical that is questionable or that is not right. So many websites give answers that are not very good or are actually go against God's word. You are a blessed man to be apart of this amazing website and I will pray for you are your site so that the Holy Spirit may continue to teach, guide and give revelation to you. It is by the teachings of the Holy Spirit that you have been able to do all of there things, for the the Holy Spirit is our teacher, our guide and there is no better teacher then He.
May God bless you in everything that you do."
"Put simply... I just cannot put into words how grateful I am for GotQuetions.org. As a preacher of God's word and a student of God's word, and most imporantly as one who continues to strive to love the Lord and know Him better .....GotQuestions.org has been, and continues to be, an absolute blessing to me. Nowhere have I found a "resource" (online or otherwise) that covers as much ground. From a well organized database of various spiritual topics to providing quality, doctrinally sound resources outside of GotQuestions.org .....I find myself constantly referring friends to "this" particular article, or "that" particular article at GotQuestions.org. Just today I referenced, to our church body, the Old & New Testament Survey links. What a wonderful, and concise, resource for something that is so important. I didn't even really have to explain that a "survey" should not suffice, or take place of, daily Scripture study ...as GotQuestions.org already does that in various ways.
You have provided what I believe to be an absolutely priceless, valuable resource for Christ-followers ....and I also believe the site answers some key questions (in simple English, but without "dumbing down") which a non-believer will find unavoidably interesting and appealing.
I could go on all day. I just keep finding "application" ...both for myself (aiding in personal Scripture study as well as sermon preparation / reference) as well as for others whom I know are looking for answers. The "answers" are in Scripture, in one form or another. The world has clouded our vision so that it is difficult to know how to get to those answers in many circumstances. GotQuestions.org has, I believe, provided the most stream-lined means of doing just that. And this is coming from a "tech guy"; who works in the software world as a vocation.
I am thankful for you all and am speaking with my wife, tonight, about beginning to financially support this ministry. I don't have much to give and, outside of my church, I don't practice regular financial giving to very many other resources. Not that there aren't others out there deserving .....but it is crystal-clear, to me, that I should give to this one. It aids "me" directly ...and will do the same for so many more.
Surely the Lord will say... "I mean it. WELL DONE, good and faithful servant!" No burying of talents in the ground going on here!"
"I am 24 years old and been a Christian for 10 years. I'm not sure if this will even get read, but would just like to say I am so very grateful for your website. I recently stumbled across it on the internet. It has been and is very useful/helpful to me in my Christian walk and I'm sure it is for many others. Keep up the awesome work. Thank you!"
"I simply want to thank you. Your site provides clear and insightful guidance for difficult questions. In my struggle to find, achieve, and maintain a closer walk with God, the information and advice I find on your site is extremely helpful and gives me strength when I need it most."
"I have to say thank you for your website!! It's probably the only reason why I know Jesus now. I grew up in a nominally Christian home and never really knew about the Gospel. Never spent a day in church, didn't know any real Christians. I was so oblivious I thought that Jesus was held onto the cross by magic! But anyway when I found your website I was about 15. I was really into the New Age religion at that time and had a question about psychics. Your article convicted me like nothing else had up until then! I actually felt the devil fighting me right in my seat! But I accepted Christ and began my walk because of the gospel message presented in one of your articles. Now a few years later I'm 18 and had rediscovered your website a few months ago. I've read through your articles again and have found them to be refreshingly true. Your standpoint is in line with what my youth pastor believes too, and so I can hold it as trustworthy, unlike many other "Christian" sites I've stumbled upon :) And just yesterday I found an article that again convicted me on New Age beliefs. It's happening all over!!! lol. But on a serious note, THANK YOU for your site. I was in a lot of darkness and REALLY needed Christ."
"I thank the Lord daily for your amazing site. I have been saved now for almost 2 years. Recently, I have craved for more and more knowledge of Jesus Christ and the gospel...along with the Bible and your site, I truly believe God is working on me. It seems no one else I know is doing what I have been doing...Its a back and forth thing...I will read scripture, go to your site, read scripture, go to the site...etc...etc...I also believe that God is sending me to your site knowing full well how much I am on the internet...or rather, how much I have been on the internet for the last few years...I am an internet junkie I suppose. Anyway, thanks again and I will always be grateful to you and Christ our Lord."
"Hello! Your website is a huge blessing to me, I use it very often, and I love it! Thank you for staying true to Jesus, His gospel and His word!!"
"I have been reviewing your website for quite some time and would just like to say that it is a very thorough, and a well versed website. Most importantly I find it to be accurate! Not to try to judge but some web sites I find are a little ..well off of what I believe the Bible's interpretation is. The point, it is nice to see a group of individuals who are researching The Bible and helping the culture along. This web site has aided me in many aspects of life and the links at the bottom of the page always seem to give me more questions that are generally related to what I was seeking. Thank you for your time!"
"I just wanted to thank you for providing this website. I use your site all the time and you have no idea how much your site has helped provide knowledge and truth of Christís word to so many. It is people like you and your website that teach the truth about Christ that are the hands and feet of Jesus. Thank you so much for everything and everyone you touch. Blessings to your entire staff."
"Hello to the wonderful staff of Gotquestions.org! I'm a Filipino mercant marine seaman and I accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior in 1993 in Germany. Ever since I was a Christian, I would conduct Bible-studies onboard the vessel I'm sailing. Although I want to tell everyone the good news of salvation, and despite the fact that I've been a Christian for quite sometime, I more often than not get stumped on many questions believers and unbelievers alike ask me. So when I "accidentally" found your website, it has been a God-send! Now I can answer questions about the Bible (and life as well) with confidence and conviction. Although me and my family are on a rough patch, when I read your article "Why Do Good Things Happen To Bad People," I know that the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us. Whatever trials that we are experiencing is for our own good. May God bless you all!"
"I hope you are all well. This is just a small note to thank you for your enlightening information. This really clarified many grey areas in my walk with the Lord. Keep up the good work and may God bless you, because many would have perished without this knowledge you share with us in a world where people are selfish even with the treasures of heaven. Enjoy the rest of your day and be strong in the Lord always."
"I was so depressed tonight over what appeared to me as God's abandonment of me. I have loved Him for 35 years and have now begun to doubt His love for me, and to wonder, 'Who is He, anyway?' in a way I never did before. Things are just really dark and confusing for me right now. I couldn't sleep. I was randomly surfing the web, finding nothing of interest. I decided to google: 'Is God real?' and you were right there on top of the list. Thank you for your site. I didn't need to read it to give my life to Jesus, but to help me in keeping on giving it to Him. Your site is very logical, not emotionally driven, and is succinct yet thorough. Just what I needed! God bless you!"
"I am so grateful for your website! During a Bible study at our church, I was the discussion group leader of one group with other ladies. One has a Mormon background and the other was very new to everything. After one study on the crucifixion, they were coming up with many questions that I couldnít soundly answer with scripture. I knew what the Bible said but I had no idea how to connect them together for a solid biblical answer. Iíve since emailed them many articles for your site. I was panicking, thinking itíll take me hours to come up with these answers in concise and easy to understand ways but your writers have done it for me. Thank you so much! Your website is changing lives for Christ!"
"Thank you for this insightful website! I was able to look up many questions I have asked over the years since becoming saved. The site is easy to navigate and gave me so much biblical background for answeres that I feel my armor has been strengthened. You and your staff be encouraged to continue to speak the truth for God's glory."
"Hi, I just wanted to let you know thet I stumbled across GotQuestions.org about a year ago, and have been hooked ever since. Your site has completly changed my life! Thank You!"
"I stumbled upon your website when a friend asked about whether it was okay for a Christian to play the lottery. I found your site when I did a Google search. I found the answer to be clear and biblically-based. I ended up spending four hours at your site! I will be referring people to your site as much as possible. Your writers do an excellent job answering tough questions, even ones that are not directly addressed in scripture. I recently asked a question, and in two days I received a well-thought out, well-written, and biblically-based answer. It confirmed what I already felt in my spirit about the issue. I just wanted to thank you for your ministry. May God bless you as you continue to offer solid, biblically-based answers to some of life's toughest questions!"
"I would just like to say that your answers to questions are astonishing and biblical. I love how you and your writers always use scripture to back the answers up. You have helped me with many questions and I enjoy reading the answers you guys provide for people's questions. I also would love commend you guys for helping others when they stumble upon something that they just don't understand. I became a born again Christian by repenting of my sins and asking our Lord Jesus Christ to help me and to be my savior. I agree with you guys on faith alone as Paul mentioned in his writings and that out of "faith" you have salvation and then follows obedience to our Lord's commandments. I just wanted to write you guys this short e-mail to tell you to keep up the good work, and may the Holy Spirit guide you to what is true so you can keep helping others. Thank You!"
"Thank you to all the wonderfull people involved in this site. Just showed me again how faithfull the Lord is - I had many questions and very few ansewers and He sent me to GotQuestions.org. I ask that you will always relay His message truthfully and pure as you are doing now. I will pray for you and ask that God bless you abundantly in Jesus name. Thanks again and keep up the good work!"
"I am sending you a quick message to thank you for the content of your website. As a Christian, I have recently had an experience that has made me feel the need to take my religion more seriously. I have always been concerned about my fate in the afterlife, not that I have done anything that I'd ever consider as an offense against God, but I've never really known what to believe will happen to me. I tried to research what I felt were a few key points of my lifestyle on the internet but really, really struggled. It seemed that everyone had a contradicting opinion on something, and at times I'd spend hours trying to find an answer that I feel is correct! Mostly the problem came from opinions and bias, something that I find your website is truly without, and for that I thank you very much. You have really helped me find good quality answers to the questions I had. Thank you!"
"Greetings from Manipal, India! Just want to say thank you for the wonderful ministry you are heading for the glory of God. I am a staff of Campus Crusade for Christ in India. I am a regular visitor of GotQuestions.org. It is truly a blessing for me to come across GotQuestions.org. I am truly blessed and using it in my ministry as well. It helped me to introspect my knowledge in the scripture and realized how much GotQuestions has influenced my life. I thank God for this wonderful ministry and praying for all of you who are being used by Him. These days I've taken a decision to separate sometime exclusively for GotQuestions.org and learn at least one answer everyday. Thanks once again and my prayers to all those who are part of this ministry. God bless."
"Thank you so much for this website. I have been a Christian since I was very young. I have had many questions along the way that were really causing me to doubt and be insecure concerning my Christian walk. Your site has allowed me to find those answers in an easy to understand format. I forward the question of the week to many people in my email base and promote you all whenever I can! I think that many people have questions and feel like I used to and are afraid to ask (when in a group setting at church) - or don't go to church and don't have the opportunity to "corner" someone that might have the answers. Let's face it - you don't get seated next to a pastor on a long flight too often! Anyhow - thank you all so much - you do a great job!!"
"Dear GotQuestions.org team. I would just like to thank you for your web site from the bottom of my heart. It is truly the best Christian web site out there. It deals with real day to day questions that Christians face in todayís society. It has helped me a lot with questions form myself and many believers and unbelievers out there. Thank you once again for this web site and keep up the good work. Best Regards."
"I live in Gauteng in South Africa. Many years I have grew up asking questions about Christianity Ė questions that could not be answered even by my own pastor. I always searched for answers on various aspects In life and the bible Ė I even questioned the Lord to give me the answers and then I found your site last year and have been reading from it ever since and it has blessed me with the right answers to all my questions. May the Lord bless you for all your wonderful work Ė your site has changed my knowledge on Christianity for the better. I thank the Lord that there are people like you who are doing such good work for Christians and non-Christians around the world. Many thanks to the entire team who are working hard everyday to help people understand better. Just know that someone at the bottom of Africa really appreciates your efforts. Thanks!"
"I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love GotQuestions.org. It has been instrumental in the development of my faith, as well as a useful tool in the field of apologetics. I am always referring to the site, and have been almost on a daily basis for the past 3 years. I found GotQuestions as I began to question some of the practices of my former church which developed the more I read the scriptures. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for the awesome job you all do. May God continue to bless your ministry!"
"Thank you! Thank you! I just came across this website on my own this morning and I'm finding it very hard to leave my computer. I am totally amazed at how you've answered so many of today's questions straight from the word of God. Every answer is true and Bible based, how refreshing this is! I've printed out so many pages to share with others. I'm a born again believer, a wife, and mother of an 11 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. Your website is great and I'm so excited about reading even more and sharing it with others. Every answer is so plain and straight forward. Thanks again!"
"Hi there. I don't have a question at the moment, I just wanted to personally thank your whole team for your website. I have lived with so much confusion for way too long and your site gives me so much relief and confidence. Please know that what you have done will help me grow in Christ as I'm sure many others will too. Thank you!"
"I just want to take the time to thank you for these well thought out, and Biblical answers to very important questions. I am very impressed with everything I am reading. I have been really seeking the Lord about Church Government, and I have found a rich supply of revelation on your site. Thank you for all of your work, prayer, study, and all the people that work to put this together. May God Bless you all Mightily!"
"I just wanted to extend my gratitude to you, and this amazing evangelistic website you have! God used this website to bring me to saving faith in Jesus Christ. I grew up Catholic, and lived in that religion for 35 years of my life. Not only that, but I was living in sin with no fear of God before me. But even still, all of those years I thought I was saved. I thought I was going to heaven because I "believed" in Jesus. But in the spring of 2007, by God's sovereignty, I ended up finding gotquestions.org, and curiously started reading some of the answers to tough questions. Around May of that year, God awakened my heart, and regenerated me from within. After reading the answers to questions about saving faith, the marks of a true Christian, and the dangers of a sinful lifestyle, I realized I was a false convert. My faith was dead, and it certainly wasn't a saving faith. God used your website to save me from the destruction of my body and soul. I have repented of my sins, and embraced Jesus Christ! Also, after coming to Christ, your website immediately then brought me out of the false religion of Roman Catholicism. Wow, what an eye opener!!! I was blind for all of those years. Thank you for this website. It is, in my view, the greatest Christian website period! I pray that God continues to use your site to win many souls. I recommed your website every time I have the chance. God bless you, and everyone who works with gotquestions.org."
"I am 19 years old, and I want to encourage you in what you're doing with your site because there have recently been times where I doubted God's forgiveness and was unsure and dwelling within the dealings of the flesh. I was so very sad and guilt was starting to take over every time I wanted to speak to God and, hearing answers, not always what I wanted to hear but, needed to hear and uncertain about, were helped so much by your site. I want to thank you because, you have helped me help myself grow closer to God. I have access to your site and I believe in what you're doing, it makes my spiritual shield stronger. Thank you so much, thank you, thank you, thank you, I love you whoever you are and wherever you may be. Please be blessed!"
"I just wanted to let you know that your website is such a blessing to me. I've sent it out to pretty much everyone I know-Christian and those that I pray are converted. It is an awesome resource, and I pray that God continues to use, bless, cover, and keep your staff, and elevate your ministry. I pray that the Lord uses this site to educate Christians, and save non-Christians. I ask for a hedge of protection around each writer and staff member, and that each and every answer to every question is divinely inspired In Jesus name! Amen! Keep it up. God bless!"
"Gotquestions.org is an excellent website! I just found out about it a few days ago and I have been using it frequently ever since. It has been SO helpful! Thank you so much for bringing it into existence. I have truly been blessed by it. May God bless you for your obedience and for your courage in bringing your vision into fruition."
"I am writing to tell you how very much your Got Questions website has helped me with questions about God and the Bible. I am 54 years old, but I have only been a Christian for 9 years. I am the only Christian in my circle of family and friends, so there arenít many people to ask questions of (I hate to keep pestering my Pastor, even though heís very patient about it). I am so very impressed with the biblical knowledge that is shown in every answer I have read on your site. I am even more impressed with the abundant love and faith that the people answering these questions have for our Lord. It is evident in every answer. Your website truly is a blessing and I do praise the Lord for it, and I ask for His blessing on you. You really are doing an amazing job!"
"Wow! I had to write you personally after reading the answer to the question "Is there an argument for the existence of God?" I am currently in a philosophy class in which I was given an assignment to debate the existence of God. I know He exists but I was put on the atheist team and was basically forced to learn the arguments as presented by an atheist in order to properly present the atheist side of the debate. After all that I read I'll admit my mind began to wander. I stumbled across your web-site via google about a month ago and have used it for reference many times since then. Tonight it crossed my mind to ask the argument question. I want you to know this is by far the most informative piece of information I have read. The explanations, theories and premises this piece contained were far more valuable than I've seen in any text book. So to you, your staff, and espeacially your writers, thank you for providing such informative and accurate information. This site has been great for my personal use as well as class. Blessings to you all and may God continue to aide you in sharing such important, wonderful information."
"I just found your website tonight while looking for bible authors. I read many answers to questions. Your answers seem very objective, supported with numerous references to biblical passages and not too heavily tainted with personal opinions. I'm 49 and have been a believer in God and Christ since early childhood, but there are so many Christian topics that leave me mystified that it seemed that I would surely die in ignorance in many important areas. Although I learn a lot in bible study, worship services, scripture reading and in other ways, I am just not taking in the information quickly enough. Moreover, I have a wife and children of 5, 4 and 2 years of age, with twins on the way. More than ever, I am responsible for the salvation of others and getting more frustrated over how little I knew and could pass along. The content of your website is giving me the feeling that I will be able to much more rapidly become well-informed on the bible than I could have been by waiting to ask my pastor an occasional question or spend months studying just one book of the bible. Perhaps the Spirit has moved me to find your website, because my heart yearns to reach out to others and be an effective witness. I've put your bookmark at the very top of the list, where my wife and I will continually see it. We will both benefit a lot from having a source for answers to our biblical questions. I am planning to look up answers given and read the scriptural references to see if I reach the same or different conclusions."
