Where Can We Turn For Answers?

In a world where there are countless ideas and opinions, is it possible to know what the Truth is? Is it possible to find real answers to life’s toughest questions?

This website is about where to turn to find answers. We can find answers in the Bible- the Word of God. Our Creator did not intend for us to go through life without direction. He left His instructions, commandments, promises, and words of comfort within the Scriptures that we might know how to live our lives. In a world where there are countless ideas and opinions, it is possible to know the only ideas and opinions that truly matter and will endure for eternity.

The Bible is a very extraordinary book. In fact, it is not a single book, but rather a collection of 66 individual books. Each of these individual books contains its own theme and tells its own part of the Story, but they all fit together to reveal one central theme and one consistent Message. The Bible was penned by more than 40 different writers over a span of over 1,500 years, yet it points throughout to the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. It stands alone in authority, accuracy, and inspiration and is the only book we can look to in order to know the thoughts of God.

I welcome you to this website and pray that you will find your answers from the Book.

To God goes all glory. In service to Him,

Loren

    Loren…just came across your site. Love your blog title. The Word of God is truly our roadmap. It leads us to Him. And He leads us to Life. May God’s ‘will be done’ with you and yours.

  5. I see this is a relativly new site, and that all of the posts seem to be from Genesis. Are you working through the book systematically? I’m working on a systematic study, beginning in Genesis, and have really just gotten started. You have already discovered The Master’s Table; my Bible study is at http://biblesurvey.wordpress.com. I believe we share a passion for seeking the truth in God’s Word. Hopefully there are many others that do as well.

  6. Yes, I just began this site at the beginning of July. My intention is to go through the Bible systematically (alternating books between OT and NT, Lord willing).

    I just read your post on Genesis 1 on http://biblesurvey.wordpress.com. I see that you mentioned some of the same observations in your study that I have written on this website. It is always such a powerful testimony to God’s unity in the Spirit when I see that He is impressing upon the hearts of others to teach the same things that He is impressing upon my own heart. We truly serve an awesome God!

    I will continue to check out your websites and will put a link to them on my own. May the Lord continue to richly bless you in your service to Him.

    In Christ,

    Loren

  10. Hi Loren, I learnt from information I found at this site. I just need to know who you are and what is your background and qualification in case I need to quote from you. Hope you don’t mind my question as you know, in the world today, people care about credible sources. Thanks for your understanding.

  11. Thanks for reading this website and taking the time to share your comments. I am glad that you have found these posts useful and I pray that they are a blessing to you.

    I have intentionally omitted a lot of details about myself and my credentials for two reasons: 1.) This website isn’t about me at all; it’s about the Lord Jesus and, 2.) It is my hope that what I write will stand or fall on its own merits. It will either ring true with each reader, or it will not; regardless of who I am and what formal training I have undergone.

    Nevertheless, I do realize that many people feel more comfortable knowing a little bit about the spiritual background from which a person is coming when they read their writings. I come from a non-denominational, Protestant background and would define myself as Scripturally conservative, and theologically a fundamentalist. I intend to write and publish a “Statement of beliefs” page on this website at some point in the future which I hope will give a complete, comprehensive summation of the beliefs that I adhere to and, more importantly, why based on what the Bible teaches. In the meantime, an article titled “What Must We Believe? – 10 Components of the Gospel Message” which I wrote on this site may be helpful in identifying what I consider some of the most intrinsic doctrines of the Faith (click here for the article).

    As far as my qualifications: I am a Lay Minister ordained by Trinity Evangelical Christian Ministries. I have no formal seminary training, but studied under the guidance of a local Pastor. My grandfather, who was also a Lay Minister, would always answer that he had attended the “College of Hard Knocks and Worn Knees” when asked about his ministerial training. I like to think of myself as enrolled in that institution, as well, though I have yet to graduate! I honestly do not know whether or not you would want to quote what I have written; there are certainly a great deal of people out there with a lot more impressive credentials. Whether or not I can be considered a “credible source”, I can only say that I invite every one of my readers to determine for themselves if what I have written is credible or not. Does it agree with what the Bible says? Does it agree with what God has spoken to their own heart?

    I have done what God has called me to do by writing these posts and sharing what God has shown me. If what I have written helps someone in their walk with God, or if it helps to lead them closer to Christ; then I rejoice in that. I hope that I have given you enough information about myself to answer your concerns. It really is my hope that people will come to know more about Jesus through what I write, not me. I can think of no greater measure of success than that.

    Thanks again for visiting and sharing your thoughts, I hope you come back again. May our Lord richly bless you.

    In Christ,

    Loren

  16. Hi Loren — You have a great web site here. I appreciate your thorough and Bible-based posts. It turns out I started AnswersFromTheBook.com (a dot-COM web site, not dot-ORG) and, of course, came to your site when doing a Google search. Let’s compare notes from time to time. My dot-COM site uses a Q&A format instead of your blog format. My partner Steve and I just published an article on abortion. I’d love to get your comments and critique. It is not your normal abortion article. — In Him, Paul Richards

  17. Hi Paul, thanks for stopping by!

    First of all, let me just congratulate you on your excellent choice of domain name :) It’s actually kind of funny, when I first began this website, I intended to make it a sort of “apologetics” style format where each post would answer a common Bible question or controversial topic from Scripture. Obviously, it has taken a different direction and now the name is perhaps a little less accurate! Oh well, I still believe that the answers to all of life’s questions and dillemas can be found in “the Book”, so maybe the title is still appropriate after all.

    Your site sounds great and I would love to spend some time looking at a little later today when I am not so busy. I look forward to reading what you and Steve have written!

    (P.S. – I am going to highlight the name of your website in your comment into a hyperlink to your homepage so people reading these comments can visit it)
