Bible Questions and Answers Concerning Man

"In the thoughts of man there are a great many questions which arise concerning himself. Some of these are highly important. So important indeed are they that the Word of God itself has recorded them. Nor is that all. This Word has not only recorded the questions, but it has also recorded the answers to the questions. And when the Word of God asks a question and answers it, then in the answer we have the absolute truth on that question, and there is an end of all disputes. There is left no room for controversy; for "thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go" (Isa. 48:17). Therefore, whatever the Lord teaches is profitable teaching. Whether we believe it, or whether we like it or not makes no difference so far as the teaching is concerned. The teaching is profitable, and everything that conflicts with it is unprofitable. The way the Lord leads is the way that we should go, and to follow any other leading is to go in the way that we should not."  A. T. Jones
