"Thank you to the gotquestions.org writing staff. A couple of years back a friend of mine recommended this website for guidance in my questions regarding theology that I felt no one was answering in a sound, biblical manner. I did not grow up in church but I had questions about why I believed what I believed. I researched so many things on gotquestions.org and I often call it a rabbit hole because one minute you are researching what the trinity is and 2 hours later, you're on an article explaining the origins of Isalm in comparison to the doctrines of Christianity. I explored subjects and questions that I had no idea people were talking and debating about. It absolutely blew my mind. It didn't make me find answers, it made me keep asking questions to everyone I knew. Why were we not asking any of these questions of our churches, our pastors, our friends and even ourselves? Using gotquestions and of course my Bible, I kept asking more and more questions and I was finally able to find a home church and a pastor that assisted in answering my questions according to the Bible in context and presented sound biblical doctrine. My spiritual growth and knowledge of the truth which is God and the salvation of Jesus Christ has blossomed. I have even emailed a question in and had a response very promptly that pointed to nothing but the Bible and Jesus Christ and that is refreshing in a world where people give answers that point to something other than God and the Bible. I do not claim to know it all because I don't and never will. I also do not want to treat gotquestions or my pastors words as the inerrant, infalliable truth. I still must test everything against Scripture which is the only authority and truth we stand upon. If anyone ever has a question that I have trouble articulating a biblical answer fully, I ask for the Holy Spirit's help and also get guidance from my pastors and gotquestions.org. It is a blessing to have tools like this to help point people to back to Christ and the Bible in a way they are able to understand and comprehend. Many many thanks and blessings to you and the gotquestions.org staff. Please keep doing what you are doing!"
"I gave my life to Christ tonight and God used your website in a powerful way to help me. To God be the glory! Thank you for being obedient to Him. I am eternally grateful."
"I would like to thank you and all the wonderful people that have dedicated their lives to this ministry. I have been a Christian for less than 6 years and have found the most truth on the Bible, God, and Christ Jesus in your ministry than any other place or through any physical church. All your answers and explanations are to the point and factual and most certainly Holy Spirit guided. I thank you and all who contribute to this website for accepting the call God has given."
"I would like to take a little time to say thank you to you and all that is involved in putting GotQuestions.org together. It is such a blessing to me. I thank God that He allowed me to find a place on the internet that is trustworthy in explaining His word. The site has helped me so much in my study. There are not many websites that I can trust. God is allowing me to start teaching a little in my church and your website helps me to put lessons togther. Again, I just wanted to say thank you and may God bless y'all richly."
"Hello, I just wanted to throw you a quick email to remind you guys how awesome you are. I'm not sure how many emails you get like this, but whatever it is, it isn't enough. You do a great public service. Five Stars. Will Recommend. *high five*"
"I'm a lifelong Christian and such a lover of our Savior. I feel like I get bumps in the road and God has always helped me through them but just yesterday I was dealt a blow from a childhood friend that I never saw coming and it has been tormenting my spirit all day. I knew the answer to the answer 'technically' but i've been so troubled all day to the point of sadness that I haven't experienced even when I lost both of my parents within 6 months of each other. I decided to just google the problem randomly as to how a Christian should handle it and your site came up. Your answer was SO PERFECT, and concise and pure and loving and EXACT! I needed to tell you GREAT JOB for sharing the Word in such a great way! Thank you so much!! I know we'll be meeting soon one day before our Lord! But meanwhile, please keep up the great work for everyone out here that has questions....new or old in the Word! They come up no matter what!"
"I want to thank you for your very lucid, well organized, and concise answers. They are very well put together, well thought out, and beautifully written. I find that whenever I have a question, I can find very accurate, reliable, and quite objective answers here on your website. Thank you so much for having this website and having the answers written so well. I cannot thank you enough!"
"I just wanted to take the time and thank you for your site as a resource. These days I am asking a lot of questions and am running into a lot of opposition online. Your site is extremely helpful and I can’t thank you enough. I prayed to God for answers to questions I have, and I see your site as a provision and answer to that prayer. It has helped me maintain peace. Thank you."
"Hello. I just want to thank you all so much for creating such an amazing site and source of information. You have helped me greatly reconnect with my faith in Jesus Christ and salvation. I was raised a Roman Catholic from a young age and drifted away from the Catholic Church in my teens as none of the teachings at church seemed to make any sense to me and I found it very difficult to relate to them. My Father was and still is a keen scientist and evolutionist and throughout all my childhood alongside me being raised as a Roman Catholic and taken to church every Sunday had educated me through all the theories of micro and macro evolution and the big bang theory. I was told these theories as if they were complete fact and at the time, that combined with my limited understanding of the Bible left my mind very confused as to God's existence. All my life though I have never felt completely at peace and always knew something wasn't right. I have spoken and prayed to Jesus on several key points of my life over the past 10 years but then my mind kept wrestling with the idea of all the modern counter-arguments to Christianity and what I had been led to believe is absolute fact about evolution. I have also spent a lot of time in the far east and have looked into the ideas and belief in Buddhism and spiritualism, but they left me without answers and without any clear direction or purpose. I feel I have never really understood the Bible or its message until now and your site is one of the main sources I have been using to find out more. I have been reading it every day for the past month and just can't seem to stop! And this is coming from someone who is a really bad and restless reader! I am now looking at joining and getting involved in a local Christian community close to where I work and I am now proud to call myself a Christian. Thank you all so much and may God bless and guide your works!"
"I am from Pretoria, South Africa. I would like to thank you for a great website. Many of the questions I had in the past, people in the ministry could not give me a true explanation to my questions. When I discovered your website, I got answers to my questions and in great detail. Your ministry has truly been a blessing to me. I also have a greater understanding of the scriptures in the Bible. Each day I try to apply these truths to my daily life and I know great changes will take place. Keep up the good work in the Kingdom of God and I know Your ministry will bring about great changes in other peoples' lives. God bless you and your ministry!"
"I just want to say thank you for such a wonderful website. Your website has been very helpful to me and has caused me to dig much deeper in the Bible to learn more about God and in the last couple of days to share the gospel in a loving way to a couple of people about a very sensitive topic that we have been discussing. So I just wanted to say thank you so much for deciphering God's word in such a way that is very comprehensible. May God continue to bless you and your organization."
"I just wanted to say a big massive thank you for your time and effort on answering questions about God's way of life. This site has clearly, carefully and lovingly answered sp many questions about the path of God. It has increased my religious knowledge and is so quick and easy to access for those that want to increase their religious knowledge. I just would like to say thank you to those involved in this. Please continue the good work."
"For Christmas I was brought a Chronological Bible. I have never delved much in to the Old Testament until now, and it has thrown up MANY questions! And at times left me wondering if I know the character of God at all. My husband pointed me in the direction of your site, and it has been utterly invaluable in helping to discern in a clear and wise way what the scriptures are actually saying. To all who write the answers to all the questions, I want to say thank you, without this site, I think I would have been left very confused even a little disturbed about all the events in the Bible. The wisdom and knowledge in how the questions are answered is amazing and has made me hunger to read on knowing if I don't quite "get it" I can find and explanation that will help it to become clear. The site is brilliant, thank you again."
"I really thank God for using you for His glory. Your online site helps me to express what I can't put in words. It helps me to depend on the biblical point of view that would really be hard to me to construct if your page didn't exist. We are truly blessed that there is a site like this that is Bible-based and it really does answer my questions. Sometimes I would get people discouraging me or going against me in my Bible based faith, and because I do not know much about the entire Bible, I can't remember all the verses that I need to use to defend my opinion and because I do not know how to easily express myself ... I just go in your site and copy-paste it to people as my response. Your page really and tremendously helps me so much in so many ways. You will never know. I am very very happy, I am so glad that God used you to create this page. I pray that He will keep using you for His glory. May you always be blessed financially, spiritually, and physically to keep up with this page. I pray for strength and power to be upon all the members behind this great website. We love you. God bless. Amen."
"Just wanted to give a quick testimonial thanking you for your site. I've been co-teaching an adult Sunday school class in our church for several years. Always looking for good topics. I started preparing a list of 10 questions each week, from your site primarily, and submitting them by email to the class to work on before the class. We never make it past 3 or 4 due to discussion being generated. We've had some of our best classes with great participation that we've ever had! The class I believe has begun a greater hunger for the Word as a result. Thank you for hearing from the Lord...keep up the good work."
"Just wanted to say thank you to providing answers with depth and clarity. As well as providing clear and definitive explanations for terms. Many have lost meaning to me and have become jumbled and confused, especially terms like "Faith" and "Belief". You have been an incredibly enlightening resource on all things related to God and Christ, without being strictly legalistic or trying to woo me as a convert by resting your arguments on clear evidence, both biblical and extra-biblical. I find it really difficult to get a sense of bearing of my relationship with God in a time where there's a million different ideas floating around about Christ, and honestly your site has put things into clear perspective, especially that I do not have to be an irrational, judicial and otherwise overbearing person, to be a follower of Christ. In fact, as I'm seeing now, it's quite completely the opposite. Thanks again."
"I just wanted to thank you for all the insight and spiritual wisdom on your website. Thank you for being bold enough to put the information on the internet. Every time I have a mind boggling question, and can't seem to find the answer in the Bible, the Holy Spirit always leads me to Gotquestions.org. :) And the way you explain things is absolutely amazing (anointed). I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Have an awesome day."
"Hi there! I just wanted to let you know how helpful I find your site and I use it on a daily basis. I find that the answers to questions are always formed with biblical authority and correct doctrine and love. I admire how gotquestions always has an answer that is never judgmental to other belief systems but still stands on the word of God. Thank you for this site! I recommend it to all my friends! Love and peace to you!"
"I cannot even remember what it was specifically that led me to your site. I was looking up something about the Lord's prayer. Then following the links at the bottom of the page, I went on and on to find more and more things that I found educational and more interesting. I don't know how you would say it. I'm a newfound Christian? I'm 37 years old but only found the Lord two years ago. Finding a site like this I would have never expected. You helped me get a closer guidance to what our purpose in life is, and bring me even closer to the Lord. I cannot express enough my gratitude. Thank you and my God be with everyone of us."
"Hi there! I'm 17 years old. Sometimes I do get a million questions running through my mind as to why I believe what I do. And then I come up with reasons I shouldn't or things that just don't click in my mind about things in the Bible. Literally almost every question I have is on your gotquestions website. I find answers that I know are strengthening my faith. The fact that I can submit my own questions and get an answer within 1-2 days is amazing. I am so thankful I found your website! Keep doing what you are doing because my faith is strengthened each day when I have a new question and I find the answer. I also love that the answers aren't sugarcoated. They are taken directly from scripture which ensures me that the answer I am reading is the truth. Thank you again! Have a wonderful new year!"
"I just wanted to take the time and thank GotQuestions.org for the wonderful service they provide “FREE OF CHARGE” via their website. Thank you. May God continue to bless each and every one of you with your ministry’s endeavor. I believe God sometimes sends tests our way or allows them to come our way when we have stuff on the inside of us that needs to be dealt with and come out. That’s what I believed happened to me about 9 years ago. Prior to that, I thought I was O.K. But one simple test proved that I wasn’t. I continuously prayed to God in many different ways and asked Him “What are You trying to tell me? What is it that You want me to learn?” I had too many questions to count, for I had about 1,000 different thoughts come through my mind all at the same time. The first thing I needed to do was to sort all of my questions out. I went to many preachers and many churches for help and asked questions, but none of them had any patience. Some gave up on me after 4 questions. Others gave up on me after 5 questions. I think the most patient preacher gave up on me after 25 questions. But GotQuestions.org has answered 1,000 of my questions and has been very patient and very generous with me. I think I have found out everything I needed to know and I think I am good and ready to go now; it seems like it. I could never have grown up bigger and better both spiritually and personally without the help that GotQuestions.org gave me. So, once again, thank you and God Bless You."
"Hello, I have been an avid reader of the articles on your site for a few years and simply want to say thank you. My deep and sincere gratitude to everyone who contributes to the GotQuestions.org ministry. I tremendously appreciate all the information and guidance Got Questions provides. Your truthful and thoughtful articles have greatly supported my faith in Christ! Praise God for this ministry and for everyone who supports it! Love, in Him."
"Hello, Gotquestions ministries. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the effort and wonderful support you are doing for people who are seeking Christ. I wasnt sure if I really was a Christian until I read an article you wrote about loving Christ. I always studied the Bible and prayed but I never loved Christ or God. Now that I accepted Christ and love Him for all that He has done, I feel like a new creation. I never felt like this before. But, I would not of found out that love was a requirement without reading your article. Some churches do not teach the importance of this. I pray that God continues to bless this ministry and I pray that all of you receive the peace of Christ. Thanks again for helping people understand the Bible for what it really is!"
"I want to thank you for this ministry and everyone that is involved in it. I am greatly encouraged by the questions and answers I see. They have been a tremendous help to me as I struggle with various issues. Thank you for your service to the body of Christ. May this encourage you and your staff."
"I continue to be totally impressed and must thank you for your superb site and excellent, truthful scriptural research you have done on so many different topics. It is always a delight to visit your site and it is true that whatever question I have had to this day, I was guided surely in the right direction through the great work you have done and provided free of charge! Thank you very much and may God continue to bless you and your ministry richly. Please feel free to forward this note of encouragement to your team members. God's blessings on all of you! Greetings in Jesus' name."
"I have questions that come to my mind when I'm studying the Word or reading books. Most of my questions are very specific and some are very deep and philosophical at times. When I have a question I type it in the search engine (I use Bing) and every time the best answer is found through your ministry. Usually you are the only place I get exactly what I was looking for. I just want to take time to thank you and let you know that you have truly enhanced my journey and walk with the Lord. I appreciate your obedience and the huge workload that must go into such a extensive database. God bless you all."
"I'm 17 and I've been a devoted reader of gotquestions.org. I stumbled upon it on Google one day last year and ever since then there hasn't been a day I haven't read at least 20 articles. I even have the app on my phone so I'm always reading it. I've been in the church as long as I can remember and I want to preach the Word of God, whether in a pulpit or some other way God will use me. I would just like to say that I pray God continues to bless this ministry and take it to even greater heights. I recommend this site to EVERYONE who has a question about anything dealing with the Bible. Even some of the most outspoken skeptics I know have changed some of their views because of the content this site has. The gotquestions app is the most used (second to my Bible app of course) on my phone. I just want to thank all of the people at gotquestions.org for letting the Holy Spirit work through them and give biblically sound answers to some very tough questions. All of you are doing what every Christian should thrive to do: teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Of course, like in Nehemiah, there will be those who oppose what the people of God are trying to do. But "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world." May God bless you all in everything you do and ask for."
"I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Gotquestions.org. My generation is so skeptical and when I came to faith, I had a million questions. I spent 7 months in intense study answering the questions I had. The Lord led me to your site time and time again. If it wasn't for Gotquestions.org, a lot of my questions would have been unanswered and they could have turned to doubts and that could have turned to unbelief. You helped me stay faithful and persevere. Thank you again so much. I have suggested your site to my pastors and I frequently direct people to your site. God bless you all and I look forward to meeting you all in eternity to thank you face to face."
"I just wanted to say thank you; not only for hosting the www.gotquestions.org website, but for taking such a solid biblical stance on the topics. Most if not all of the answered questions have a very thorough response. I often use your site just to get another "Christian" perspective on questions of my own because I find your stance to be very solid and insightful. While not everyone may agree with the website's answers, you have ensured that each answer has a solid root, which is the Bible. I appreciate that a lot. I have no doubt that God is indeed using the answers on your website to reach many people and give them insight into His word and point them in the right direction. Satan should definitely be worried about what you guys are accomplishing for God, so please remain diligent to His word so that your ministry can stay solid. Anyways, even thought you get dozens if not hundreds of emails a day, I wanted you to know that I'm thankful God is using your site in such an awesome way."
"Your site is awesome! As a long-time believer, I still have questions about all sorts of things and value being able to get trustworthy, thoughtful, supported answers every time I look something up. "Well done" to all of your writers!"
"Dear sir. My hat is sooooooo off to you. I am a 63 year old retired fella. I decided in my spare time (haha...its ALL spare time now) to write some questions to and see how they are answered. I just wrote "How do I keep from going to Hell?" Every question I asked was answered so so well on your website.....totally biblically accurate and very easy to understand. God Bless you LOADS for a job well done......What a tremendous way to get the gospel on internet. God Bless."
"Hello! As an atheist, it's exceedingly rare to find a religious site as well done as your is (so far that I've read). All the points on atheists' philosophy are accurate. (At least the ones that I've read). In other words, I haven't seen any glaring straw men. Plus your arguments seem to have a touch of originality and honesty in them that is rare to see these days. There are many people and sites that are not only dishonest with themselves, but with their readers as as a result- yours doesn't seem like that. It's refreshing, and I just wanted to thank you for the read. Thank you for an interesting site!"
"I'd like to thank you for your website. I thought I was saved at the age of 15 (born and raised fundamental, independent, Baptist), but then I lived many, many years away from God, never attending church, and now I'm not sure if I was backsliden or just not saved. I'm leaning toward not really saved, I remember being so scared I was gonna be left behind if the rapture occurred. Well, last year I became strongly convicted. I asked the Lord to save me, and for the first time I can truly see there's nothing more important in this world, than my salvation and my walk with Jesus!!! Praise God!! I don't even think about being left behind, or about Hell, I'm just focused on learning about and knowing my Savior, Jesus Christ. I'm not playing games anymore! Now I'm on a mission to educate myself, and your website has been the most helpful of anything I've found on the internet for sound, biblical, truth. Thank you so much!!!"
"I am one of your several fans who frequently browse through gotquestions.org to see what’s new. To tell you the truth, the Holy Spirit has led you and your writers into penning truth facts, wisdom, and knowledge that absolutely and correctly answer the hundreds of technical questions floating on the site. My prayer is that I will work out time to take a day off to fast and pray purposely for you so that you will be increased and replenished in all knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Stay blessed."
"THANK YOU, and THANK YOUR TEAM for an awesome website and your courage to speak Truth! What a tremendous resource for people searching for God's Truth. I can not even imagine the spiritual and cultural attacks you endure every day. Please know you are appreciated and I will pray for you all!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for your ministry. I have used your website many times to assist me in preparing my Sunday School lessons. I find it amazing how many times when I’m searching on a biblical topic that your web site is at the top of the search list. Actually, what I find most amazing is that after I have read several of the responses from other sites, that I come back to your site for the most succinct and easy to understand answer. May the Lord continue to bless your work."
"Good Day, I just wanted to send you a note to thank you so very much for your clearly Spirit-led, and wonderfully researched ministry/website. You have assisted me numerous times, specifically when my unsaved loved ones ask a poignant questions regarding Christianity and salvation and I'm subsequently stumped on how to answer. I encourage you in Jesus' name to continue your hard work in spite of any and all adversity, which is surely inevitable especially in this time and age on earth. Your site has been a God-send and I felt led to tell you and thank you for the powerful way God has been using you and all involved. God bless you and your family. Sincerely from a very grateful sister in Christ!"
"Thank you so much for your ministry! There have been so many times I needed a Bible question answered, but I didn't know who to turn to. Then I found GQ and it's literally changed my life! Thank you so much and Praise God! Keep doing what you're doing!"
"Just wanted to send a message of sincere thanks. I have been a Christian for many years but am always seeking & learning more. Your website has been so valuable to me. It gives such wonderful and clear explanations to the myriad of questions that I have. It has enabled me to study books of the Bible in more depth and also helps me when preparing my Sunday School lessons. I am so grateful for your website. Please keep up the good work."
"Thank you so so much for taking the time and effort and finances to make this website possible. It has helped me greatly with sound biblical teaching. As I pray for you may our great I AM continue to bless this ministry and all of your staff and their families. Again, thank you."
"I just wanted to say that your "Got Questions" website has been such a spiritually uplifting, informative, Bible-centered resource for me!! Keep up the good work."
"Hi, I'm a Romanian young man that currently lives in Italy ....I write this message to you because I want to let you know that about a year ago I started to read your site hoping that it could make me understand God ...and so it happened! God worked through your site in such a manner that today, I can happily say that I'm a new man, a born again Christian and that this to me is the most beautiful thing that has ever happened. I actually cannot describe in words how I feel but I'm sure you can understand! Anyway.....thank you all for the extraordinary work you do, I'm going to pray for you. Amen."
"I just wanted you to know the information, questions and answers of your website have been so helpful to many people on "this side" of the computer! As I read the scriptures, I often come back to GotQuestions.org for a fuller understanding of "what does this mean?". As a newer Christian, I wanted to write you to thank you for the way your site has turned around my life and many others I know who also are new and mature Christians. Sometimes we seem to doubt our own wisdom and look to others to confirm it. Your writers have a wonderful way of explaining, confirming and leading people to Christ. So, THANK YOU for your website's support and in-depth information. God Bless You!!!"
"Thank you for helping us understand God's Word. My husband and I are 72 years of age, and were of a Catholic background, until we were saved by Christ in 1995 and 1997. You have no idea how much we have learned and come to understand God's Word through this ministry."
"I just want to take a moment to thank you and all those who contributed to Got Questions. The website has been and continues to be a valuable tool for me personally as well as those I come into contact with. It is so nice to type in a keyword or phrase and have a database of biblically sound information at my fingertips! I thank God for the technology to be able to reach people outside my home, though I'm just an individual who loves Jesus and His holy Word. Currently I am unable to support your ministry financially, but you have my continued prayers. May God continue to richly bless you and all associates for the wonderful work you have!"
"Just felt compelled today to drop you a note to encourage the progress of your ministry for the kingdom. I am a pastor and I am frequently giving your website out to people as one of the best resources for the everyday follower of Jesus to help them as they process through questions they have about their faith. What I love about your site is that it stays extremely close to the Word, doesn't speculate and errs on the safe to conservative side of any issue. I know when I give your site information out, I can trust it will not send people in the wrong direction. Thanks."
"How Got Questions has changed my life: As a Christian, I have benefited way too much from your ministry. For the first time, I have never had any question gone unanswered. It gives me a lot of courage and strength to keep on doing what God expects me to do. There is a lot of information that has drastically changed my life for the better, ranging from the newsletters you send every Friday to the FAQs on the website, the content has really helped me. As one of my plans which I will achieve, I always pray to God to help me make my first donation to the ministry. Thank you very much. I appreciate everything I get from you and I pray that God will always reward you for the work you are doing."
"I would just really like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your website, GotQuestions.org. This website has been helping me through a tough season of my life, shining God’s Truth where I desperately needed it to be exposed and revealing the Hope of Jesus most of all. I cannot thank you enough! This is an amazing resource! I really appreciate it! For literally all of the questions I have typed in a google search, I have found biblical answers here - some containing new insight and a lot serve as strong, refreshing reminders. The question bank is full of so many relevant and pressing topics. This is so amazing. Thank you so much again! God Bless you!"
"I just want to tell you what a valuable and wonderful ministry your website is. I had been looking for something like this and did not know it was available, until recently. I have shared it with believers and unbelievers. Most people want to know what the Bible says about their question in a 'brief' answer rather than reading a lengthy thing. I don't have easy access to a pastor to ask some of my questions, so, I feel like your ministry is my personal 24/7 pastor. Thank you for this wonderful tool. I am going to partner financially and prayerfully with your ministry. May God bless the hands of your work."
"I am a new Christian, and use your site very often. Whenever I come across a teaching that I am unsure about, or come into contact with a teacher who I believe is teaching a false message, the first thing I do is come to your site if I am unable to immediately find the answer in Scripture. Literally, if I have a question, I Google the question, followed by "Got Questions" crossing my fingers that it has been addressed on your site. Your site is a great asset to any believer, at ANY level. Thank you, and I will be making a donation to support your wonderful site very soon! God Bless!"
"Hello. I am an associate pastor and seminary graduate. Your "got questions" website has been a great blessing to me. I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how much I appreciate your ministry. Even as a theologically trained pastor, I often need a quick refresher on a certain aspect of a biblical doctrine, related passages, etc. I cannot tell you how often I reference your site while working on a lesson or sermon. Thank you so much for your ministry. I imagine it is reaching more people, in more ways, than you can probably imagine. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry and your family. Thanks!"
"I've been a believer for about a year and still have so many questions. I've tried to use the internet as a way of researching those questions and have found plenty of sites that will give me many verses, but none of them have been good about an explanation to what the verse means. Your website has changed that for me. I've found so much information already and am so thankful. I get excited about not understanding a verse because it allows me the need to reference your site and learn so much more than just a simple explanation. It's hard to put my thanks into words but I am so very grateful, as I am sure many Christians feel. If there is ever a way that I can help you spread the word please let me know. May God bless you in every way possible."
"I just want to say that I appreciate your website ministry. It has helped me to answer some of those complex questions that I’ve always thought about but never quite had the answers to. The answers provided are so simple and plain to understand. I thank God for the revelation that He has given to your staff in order to answer some of these really difficult questions. Only by being in His Word and receiving His Spirit have you all been able to articulate so plainly these mind-boggling questions about Him and His nature. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have recommended your website to several people, and pray that everyone who comes across it finds it as helpful in their search for biblical wisdom and knowledge as I do. God Bless You All!"
"I wanted to thank you for creating such an interesting and informational site. While I do no agree with all of your answers or interpretations, I have to say that I applaud you for taking the time to at least research the issues, concepts and ideas, of which you discuss. Although your site was not intended for this purpose, your research into non-Christian related topics is impeccable. For example, you give the best explanation of the Tao I have ever read, or the astrological signs, or horror movies, etc... keep up the good work!"
"I am a 20 year old father and husband serving in the U.S. Navy. But most of all I am a born again believer and child of God through Jesus Christ. I just want to let you know this ministry is a true blessing to me and helps build my faith of of biblical doctrine and not manmade traditions. Thank you for being obedient to Christ in this ministry and helping the elect in this effort. I truly love you and honor this work. Please stay close to God and stay the course. Thank you so so so much. I love Jesus! Please may God bless you."
"I'm sending you this email because I know God is totally using you to do greater works for His will to be done here in Earth. I stumbled across your website along with many other websites after searching for some answers to biblical questions. And without a doubt I knew that your website was totally created by God & led by the Holy Spirit. Every answer is followed by and lined up with Scripture. I highly recommend my friends and those I know who have biblical questions to your website because how can anyone ever argue or criticize the Word of God?
Every time I have had a biblical question and searched the internet, the Holy Spirit had led me to your website and I am never dissappointed, confused, or mislead. I'm always very pleased & confident after leaving Gotquestions.org because for every biblical question that I have, you have a answer, and the answer is always lined up with God's Word, the Truth. And I always leave your website feeling very insightful and filled with the Word of God, knowing that The Holy Spirit led me to exactly what I was looking for and needed, just as he does when I'm reading the Holy Bible.
I give God all the glory and thank you and Him for using you to create a biblical question website that is such a blessing to many people like myself. It has helped me grow closer to the Lord, given me knowledge, and helped me understand things in my Christian journey. And more importantly it has inspired me to stay strong in the faith while going through spiritual warefare and hardship. I want to say thank you. I know even as pastors and whomever God has called to do His will, it isn't always easy, so I also say to you be strong and of good courage in the faith and continue to do what God has called you to do. Keep up the good work ~ God's Work!"
"I just want to thank you. Your site provided everything I wanted to know. The past weeks I have been doing a lot of research and some of it is extremely frightening. At times, I feel like I've lost my family. We dont go to church. I loved the feeling I had going as a child, but a bad experience left me running and never wanting to go back. Recently, I have doubted God's existence. So I decided to do some research and came across your site. It brought me to tears. Every answer I needed, you had it right there, it was as if I was directed to your site. It gave me that feeling I once had as a child. I can't thank you enough. I now feel I have enough knowledge to make others and my family believe when I'm asked. I just really wanted you to know how much this meant to me and how I'll never lose my faith ever again. All because of your site."
"I want to just take a moment and thank you for this website. You have no idea how you have helped me with my walk. I have gone to your site for all kinds of questions. God bless you and your staff for the work and time you take to make this site the way it is. May God give you strength to continue to do this and even more if possible. Again, thank you."
"Thank you for the time your organization took in compiling all this information. It is so helpful and easy to use. And it is wonderful to see the light reaching out to those whom seek, knock and search for answers."
"Over the course of this year I have used GotQuestions many times. Not only that, I've recommended GotQuestions many times to family, to congregants, to other pastors. It is wonderful to have a trusted resource at ones fingertips when you need an answer in a hurry. I realise that it must take a team to do all the work that you guys have done. Please pass on my heartfelt gratitude and thanks to all."
"I discovered the Got Questions website a while back, when I Googled a biblical question. I have since done a little research, because I tend to question and/or be skeptical of almost everything I read, see, hear, etc. So far, the answers given on your site, have been spot on accurate. What I appreciate equally, is the way the answers are given. The staff are obviously laboring out of love. I received a free bumper sticker, and just put it on my vehicle, and prayed that it would lead others to Christ. I was already a believer in Christ, before finding your site, but I am hoping the sticker will help someone. Anyone. I am the introvert that is described in one of the articles. I am hoping to become better at spreading the good news. Too often I have seen people do it in a negative way, which makes me even more shy about it. If I'm going to tell people about God/Jesus/Holy Spirit, I want to do it in a positive way, without anger or defensiveness. Your website has allowed me to post links to my Facebook, have rational conversations with people, and has grown my relationship with my Savior. It has helped me be a better Mom too. I am merely writing to say thank you. I suppose I went about it in a lengthy fashion. But thank you all, nonetheless."
"I stumbled upon your website by accident. I was looking up fleecing the Lord. I am usually so skeptical about such websites. I must say, I could feel an anointing as soon as I began reading. Naturally once you feel the Holy Ghost stirring within you want to know why, so I kept digging and I kept reading. I just wanted to say, thank you so very much. In a world full of confusion and darkness, you have stood up in the midst of that darkness to be a light and it has brought me to tears that others who do no know truth can see by that light. Thank you so much for your time and dedication to truth. Blessings to all!"
"Dear brothers and sisters, First of all, I'd like to tell you how much your site has meant to me in my Christian walk. Your articles have strengthened my faith so much and have played a part in enabling me to be bold in my faith and share Christ with others. Explanations about the genealogy of Jesus, the harmonization of the resurrection accounts, the (supposed) two creation accounts, and others have done a lot to remove doubt and convince me that what I experience with God is real and based on reason. I am very involved with evangelism and discipleship now, and, unless God had provided another way, I may not have even been a Christian today without you.
I have created my own fliers that I hand out to engage people in spiritual conversations that have a few resources (apologetics, discipleship, etc.) on the back, and you are one of them. Also, when I'm sharing Christ and someone says that they used to be in the church but don't believe the Bible now (or a number of other responses), I assure them that the Christian faith is reasonable and incredibly important to understand and, if I don't have time to answer their questions myself, point them to your website (and pray).
Thank you for your dedication to our Lord and to His truth."
"I know that you probably deal with a lot day to day. I just want to tell you what a blessing it has been that Jesus led me to your website. It has seen me through a number of issues. It has helped me make decisions in my life that turned out very much for the best. Thank you so very much."
"I stumbled onto GotQuestions in a random web search, and since then I’ve been continually visiting the site and I cannot recommend this site enough! GotQuestions is a wonderful, encouraging, helpful and refreshing site that has encouraged me to grow in my faith and answered so many different questions. In fact some of your articles and answers to questions have been so helpful, I’ve printed them off to use for references. Thank you for being such an awesome ministry – may God richly bless you & all the team at GotQuestions!"
"Hi, about 7 years ago, I submitted a question to your website. The explanation made me realize I needed to really examine the Bible before I drew any conclusions about it. I don't think I would've wanted to give the Bible another look if my question had been met with condescension. I have since accepted Christ and I'll never forget the help I've received from your website. I'm grateful for the people you have contributing to it. Your website was instrumental in bringing me to repentance and it continues to help me grow and point others to Christ. May God bless your organization."
"Just wanted to let you know that I just found your site and typed in all the questions I could think of that I've been pondering recently. Thank you!!!!! The answers were very helpful and enlightening! I'm sure I'll return again and again!"
"Praise God! I only wanted you to know that I truly appreciate all the hard effort that has gone into assembling your website. I often refer to it when reading the word or when witnessing to someone. You and your team have been a great help to me and I am quite sure others feel the same as I do. Know that you and your team have been used by the Lord to do a very good work in helping others with their own ministries. God bless you all!"
"I am writing to thank you for this great website. I have learned more reading your website then what l have learned in all the churches I have gone to. I thank God for this wonderful website and secondly you for creating such a wonderful learning tool. May God bless you and all your staff and I pray that you keep up the good work in Jesus' name. Amen."
"I found your site yesterday and spent a lot of time reading different questions and answers. I just wanted to take this time to tell you how much I appreciate the work that you and others have put into this site. The prayer and the searching for biblical answers is very refreshing. As a matter of fact I have began telling others about your site because for people who are new Christians or for people who think they know God and salvation but really don't this should be a big help. Thanks again and I will place this site in my prayers in order to keep it going and honest."
"I have to thank you people for this powerful ministry that helped me understand sooo many questions rolling through my head. Just want to encourage you to never give up this amazing web site!! .............. You guys ROCK!"
"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 God’s 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 God’s 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 – I discovered it just the other day and can’t get enough of it! I’ve already told a few friends/family about it. Kudos to you and your team for such a great website – 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 – don’t follow any religion). It is the only website I’ll 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 Christ’s 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 couldn’t 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. I’ve since emailed them many articles for your site. I was panicking, thinking it’ll 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."
