If you want to buy a bible from the American Bible Society you have to go to their Bible store which is at Bibles.com.  At the site Bibles.com you will see a different discount on each different bible offered in a "case" form.  For example one of their bibles is regularly $19.99 each but in a case of 10 the price goes down to $14.99 each. This is about a 25% discount on volume purchases... more

I believe that the Mayans predicted that on 12/12/12 will be the beginning of the end.  The number twelve is an important number in the Bible and if you read and try to understand Revelations you might become convinced that the world may not end then but that there many signs that it has started.  It does not say how long it will take for all this to happen so no one really knows for a f... more

Hi Glenda,  there are still a few about, although with the onset of mobile phone internet,laptops, iPads, free computers in libraries and hotels offering free WiFi connections, the internet cafe is becoming a thing of the past. You are more likely to find the few that still do exist in city centres, University towns or at holiday / tourist destinations, where there is a higher catchment of ... more

Dazza, There are few things worse than not being able to find the answer you are looking for.  Sometimes finding the answer is easy.  You just type a few words into a search engine and take it from there.  But what do you do when all you have is an image and a vague description? My answer would be to do a google search, but to search images rather than websites.  Type in a ... more

According to Hindu epics no body is considered a complete person without marriage. Hence it is performed before the holy fire in the presence of a priest by reciting many holy mantras.  Hindu wedding has seven important rituals and vows.  Kanyadan (the parents of bride wash the feet of bridegroom and offer their daughter to him as a gift), Mangalsutra (tying the knot), Saptapadi (taki... more

Yes, the primary reason Mother Teresa came to Calcutta was to spread Christianity. Though she was a person concerned about others sufferings, there are no dearth of accusations against her. Her institute and all Christian institutes in India have only one objective - to spread Christianity and they get paid by foreign missionary organizations. more

Yes, fascinating it is. Though Hinduism believes in cycles of creation and destruction, according to it, the universe did have a start. Hindusim belives, at the first there was Adi Shakti, the mother of all beings and things. She created the three principal Gods - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva who in turn created the universe. Brahma is the one who created the various deities (Deva) mentioned in Hindui... more

Your advice is sound and can be heeded by people of all faiths, particularly the last line, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner'. Prayer is a very personal thing and there are many paths to God. There is not only one way. All people were created equally and the path to God is theirs to choose. I will call most of what I do 'conversations with God' as I  talk constantly to God whether it is in th... more

Can a ghost called 'Samuna' help you? Can the sun-god of ancient Egyptians help you? Or can the Norse god 'Thor' help you? Even super-man or Sherlock Holmes can't help you.... Got the point? more

I only beileve in things that I can feel through one of my five senses. Naturally, guardian angels do not exist for me. The guardian angel for you is same as Santa Claus for small children. santa Claus does not exist and neither your guardian angel. Grow out of this childish delusions. more

I was homeless in the UK for about five years.  Based on my experience, it's best NOT to give money to the homeless or to beggars.  It is much better to give food, clothing, candles, blankets -- tangible things.  In this way, you know your money is not going to purchase drugs or alcohol. I wasn't a drug addict, but drug addicts who saw me getting money from others would rob me. more

What? Can you please rephrase your question or flesh it out a bit please? It sounds like you are asking a question and making a statement or perhaps you are asking two questions? Do you have a particular incident or a specific governmental policy that you are asking about? I don't understand what you are asking exactly. Governments can and do impose and enforce religious observances but they cann... more

Excellent answer Karen. Christians have freedom to study whatever they want. We have no one holding a stick over our heads ready to wack us. I think that it is always a good idea to be well educated on things like the dead sea scrolls and the Gnostics and other things like this. We want to be ready to give an answer when people begin asking questions regarding spurious doctrines or writings. Our o... more

There may seem to be a higher amount of people that lack scientific aptitude nowadays.  But, there are many factors here to consider.  First, consider the amount of scientific progress that we've made in just the past 80 years.  From nuclear physics to microbiology, the amount of scientific knowledge the average person must have to be scientifically "apt" is exponentially higher tha... more

Cannibalistic practices do exist in certain tribes of remote Indonesia. Howevr, the cannibalistic practices are rather rare and performed mostly as part of ritual sacrifice and tribal warfare rather than for food purpose. Many undiscoverd tribes of Amazon jungle are believed to practice cannibalism though these  claims are yet to be proven. Cannibalism was also widely reported in many countri... more
