  1. Great video as always! I know y’all are super busy, but would you guys ever do discussions on specific topics in the future? I’m talking about “controversial” stuff like abortion, homosexuality, women in church, etc. Maybe in the form of theme videos or podcasts or Q+Rs which trace back their biblical history/contexts and explain how modern day readers should interpret these concepts? Thanks!

    • Sandy There’s a podcast I stumbled across called The Briefing that you might find interesting. It addresses a lot of the topics you mentioned from a biblical perspective, so if that’s something you’re looking for go check it out 🙂

      Homosexuality is “Wrong” because God meant for a man and a woman together, to create children and to grow his kingdom. So why this is wrong is because “A key and a key can’t go together and neither can a lock and a lock, but rather a key and a lock.” The reason why it is wrong is because that isn’t the way God intended. Therefore it is sin, because sin is whatever goes against God and his original creation. Also if you go back into 1 Corinthians Paul does address this because the church in Corinth was having problems with Sexual Immorality. “Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality…” 1Corinthians 6:9
      For abortion you would have to specify. Do you mean Planned Parenthood or Abortion? Because some people mean Planned Parenthood instead. Abortion is wrong because the baby is human created by God even in the womb. “You shall not murder.” Abortion is turning a mother into a murderer…No matter what their circumstance. BUT I do truly believe from God’s character He will turn this into something they can testify to later on in life, and will be forgiven. But that does not mean you should continue in it, and you should realize the slightest thing or sin you do can have a MAJOR impact.
      I hope this helped a little bit, this is from my knowledge and understanding of the Bible. 🙂

    • FlyingAxblade 2 Timothy 2:23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.

      Philippians 2:14. Do all things without complaining or arguing

      Proverbs 18:2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.

    • +FlyingAxblade well he did the visions of Daniel and those were depicted as it read ,the same can be done in revelations as long as the video sticks to what is being described. it might look funky if drawn out but it wouldn’t take away from the scripture.

    • I’d comply with the “graphic novel” of Revelations, aka The Apocalypse of John.  Why’d they change that?  And regarding without arguing or complaining then explain a whole bunch of Paul to me, without using “he was an apostle”.  I literally work with sheep and goats and camels and antelopes and other animals, we are humans.  I WILL NOT submit to self-proclaimed authorities.  Scripture is not “verses” it’s chapters at the least.  I’m not a welfare seeker of the church, I’m a welfare provider for the church, this is going to make arguments and complaints from the lazy.  Cherish is the new love, Be Well!

  2. hey,
    these videos are great, I was wondering if you could tell me which program you use for making the videos. at the moment I am using ‘videoscribe’ although a good program, I find it a bit limited on the resources and functionality.

  3. Jesus didn’t just died a poor slave’sdeath, he suffered the torture and death of the worse of criminals so he could pay for every pain, necessity and illness that could be suffered. Also, a cross atthose times was a single tree trunk, no secondary stick for the arms. Either way, these videos do great at explaining the basics of the books, God bless you ^^

  4. going about your Father’s Business, good job. Luke 2:49 And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?”

  5. I would like to thank you for all the hard work on making the “kind of hidden” meanings of the Bible available for everyone. I am not a Christian in fact but a Muslim who’s a fan of Jesus, and your videos make me realize how the holy bible is so full of great teachings.
    Moreover, your videos never fail to show the hope that’s in the scriptures, and that’s something the world has always needed and will always need.
    Again thanks a lot. This really helps me while I’m going through the books that make this great holy Book.

  6. 0:50 the symbol behind the letter. Not cool. John 14:6. Blessings my brothers and sisters stay close to him. For in just a little while he who is to come will come and not delay.
