Question Answer
If you could travel back in time to any period, and meet any person who is historically significant, who would you want to meet and why?

Jesus. to see him in person

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

unbelief. evangelism through words an action

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

Yes. to know Him and serve Him, the only true GOD.

We live in a world that tends to believe, now more than ever, that all religions are equal and no one religion is better than another. In your opinion does it matter what someone believes? If not, why not, if so, why so?

Yes. to lead them to the truth

All religions have different beliefs about the afterlife but many seem to indicate that we go to a better place, if we do the right things in this life. What do you personally believe about the afterlife and what do you think we need to do in this life in order to get to this better place in the next life?

I believe in afterlife- a real heaven an hell. it is only by salvation through JESUS CHRIST that you can get to this better place { heaven } in the next life. it is appointed unto man once to die and after death there is judgement. if there is no life after death, there is nothing to judge

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

I believe there is life after this life is over.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, why is it difficult for us to avoid believing in non-material things like truth, love, beauty, goodness, etc…?

Jesus. I mean, he’s God. Also to smash those niggling doubting voices in the back of my head.

Lack of knowing God through Christ

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

Yes, we have a purpose. Specific purpose is different from person to person, though I believe they all have the similarity that God wanted relationship with us.

Most religions are ether false, or are overly base and false. All religions dont lead to the same thing.

Heaven is real, and if we try to get there by our-self we are so out of luck. Jesus is the path.

I believe we came from God. Also, might want to change this questions wording a bit. Makes it sound like I dont need to answer if I believe in a creator.

King James I of England — to see first-hand the events of his life and to read first-edition the writings he wrote.

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

Our biggest problem is ignorance and fear, solve the problem by studying (2nd Timothy 2:15) and by applying true power, true love, and having a true sound mind. (2nd Timothy 1:7, Romans 3:4)
* It seems that 2nd Timothy is the solution to the world’s major problem – but it will never happen. (James 4:4)

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

We are here for a purpose, but that purpose can’t be found in The Purpose-Driven Life by Rick Warren. Mr. Warren has no idea what the purpose of the Gospel is.

We live in a world that tends to believe, now more than ever, that all religions are equal and no one religion is better than another. In your opinion does it matter what someone believes? If not, why not, if so, why so?

The words “religion” and “belief” are not the same words. True religion is found in the Holy Bible, James 1:2 (compare with James 4:4). Belief has to do with what one chooses to think is true; therefore, that is based on what one has been taught, espc. at an early age. (2nd Thess. 2:13)

All religions have different beliefs about the afterlife but many seem to indicate that we go to a better place, if we do the right things in this life. What do you personally believe about the afterlife and what do you think we need to do in this life in order to get to this better place in the next life?

I believe what the Bible teaches, that no man has salvation without receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour (John 10), that if you don’t receive Him (John 1) that you cannot believe and confess Him (Romans 10:9-10). That’s a very brief, broad, simple, one-sentence description of what I personally believe about issues such as the “afterlife” and “salvation”.

Here’s a real good question to ask a lost person / non-believer: what do you love *the most* and why? (follow up with: Did you know that truth trumps everything?)

Adam. Because he was the original man, he would have experienced religion it it’s true form.

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

Greed, dissatisfaction, discontentment. Good parenting, teaching right and wrong.

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

Yes, we were put here by God (Who may be an extraterrestrial), in a controlled experiment which we have failed.

We live in a world that tends to believe, now more than ever, that all religions are equal and no one religion is better than another. In your opinion does it matter what someone believes? If not, why not, if so, why so?

No, as long as there is a common purpose to create or promote goodness.

All religions have different beliefs about the afterlife but many seem to indicate that we go to a better place, if we do the right things in this life. What do you personally believe about the afterlife and what do you think we need to do in this life in order to get to this better place in the next life?

Possible, but we ought to be motivated to do good for the sake of doing good. A paradise should not be a motivator for life.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

Evolution, through which other gods were invented to control the masses.

Not sure.

Martin Luther King Jr. To pick his brain on why he would put his life on the line. JFK for the same reason.

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

The lack of communication. This could be solved by open minidedness and honesty.

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

Yes, but not sure what this could be. Sperm meets egg and that’s it.

We live in a world that tends to believe, now more than ever, that all religions are equal and no one religion is better than another. In your opinion does it matter what someone believes? If not, why not, if so, why so?

It shouldn’t matter. I’m not foolish enough to judge.

All religions have different beliefs about the afterlife but many seem to indicate that we go to a better place, if we do the right things in this life. What do you personally believe about the afterlife and what do you think we need to do in this life in order to get to this better place in the next life?

Yes, in order to get there, you have to have a good heart, and only God knows for sure.
