Over the years, as I have presented Bible studies in hundreds of homes from Northern Oklahoma, across Texas and Southern Florida, I still get the same questions over and over concerning certain Bible verses. They are good questions about verses that can be hard to understand. They deserve good answers. Below I have shared some of these questions that I am often asked. I am not smart enough to answer all these questions. However I am sharing how the Bible solves its own dilemma. After each difficult question is a link that will provide the Biblical solution. I hope you find this section of my website useful. If you have any Bible texts that are hard for you to understand, there is a very good chance the rest of us have had trouble understanding it too. Please e-mail me any difficult texts that are not already listed below and I will share them here. Together we will find the Bible answer. You may e-mail me at LayPastor@TampaAdventist.net
