I read a book that claims the real truth about Jesus was suppressed by the church. Is there any truth to it?
Billy Graham writes, "You can be absolutely confident that what was written in the Bible about Jesus is accurate, and its accuracy has been confirmed by scholars (both Christian and non-Christian) repeatedly over the centuries."
Do you think it's important to tell the truth all the time? So many people I know don't think anything about telling a lie if it will help them.
Billy Graham writes, "I commend you for your stand for Christ and your commitment to avoid lying—even when it seems like it would help you. The Bible is clear: 'Each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor' (Ephesians 4:25)."
Why doesn't the Bible tell us anything about Jesus' early life? I read once that Jesus supposedly spent His early years in Tibet or someplace like that.
Billy Graham writes, "Such fanciful ideas have absolutely no basis in fact. They come only from someone's imagination, and you shouldn't put any belief in them, for they simply aren't true."
I have a friend who says that the Dead Sea Scrolls disprove Christianity. I don't know anything about this, but could he be right?
Billy Graham writes, "No, your friend is not right when he claims that the Dead Sea Scrolls (and for that matter other writings from the ancient world) disprove the Bible."
I don't think it's wrong to shade the truth a little bit when it isn't going to make any difference, as long as it doesn't do any harm.
Billy Graham writes, "I can't agree with you, and the reason is because God calls us to live by a higher standard in our speech."
Why should I believe something just because it's in the Bible?
Billy Graham writes, "If I thought the Bible was just another book, written by human authors and only containing various people's ideas about God, then I wouldn't bother to quote it or build my life on it."
How can someone who doesn't know very much about God decide what's true about Him and what isn't?
Billy Graham writes, "I'm thankful for your caution, because you are correct—not everything you hear people say about God is right."
How can we know what is true about Jesus and what isn't?
Billy Graham writes, "Is it more logical to accept as true what some modern novelist has dreamed up—or what an eyewitness to Jesus' life recorded? I think you know the answer."
Recently, I thought I was telling my neighbor the truth about something, but later I found out it wasn't true after all. Does this make me a liar in God's eyes? I've always tried to be as truthful as possible.
You shouldn't worry about this; God knows your heart, and He knows you weren't intentionally telling a lie.
How can two people who were raised in the same way by the same family be so different when it comes to God? Jesus means everything to me, and my parents were the same way. But my sister has never wanted anything to do with God or the church, and she just laughs when I try to talk with her about it.
