ANSWERS: 100
  • No to all questions but yes to all questions relating to God and man's relationship with Him!
  • I haven't read it in depth enough to answer this question. Maybe you could find the answer in the Bible.
  • The answer is yes if you can find the answers to the following questions in the Bibe - 1) what colour is my hair? 2) what am I having for dinner tonight? 3) why do I love my girlfriend? Otherwise, the answer is a big fat NO.
  • Nah. It can't answer the What's this pill and Johnny Depp questions here ;)
  • Not all the answers but certainly Solomon's Proverbs and other bits contain some pretty good advice...
  • Course it does. Only some of the words and some of the letters in some of the other words ahve got jumbled up. What you need is scissors and glue (and lots of patience)
  • Nope. There are people who would say that the Bible really contains all the answers to the IMPORTANT life's questions, though.
  • It raises more questions than it answers. One could do worse than to live by the teachings attributed to Jesus.
  • nope, just instructions on how to be a slave to it, and to confuse your mind.
  • The most important ones. eg Why are we here? To love God and love others How do I relate to God? Through Jesus (Jesus said: No one comes to the Father but through me". John 14:6) What is truth? (Jesus said :I am the Truth John 14:6) Where does evil come from? (All have sinned/rebelled and have fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23) How will the world end? (when Jesus returns Matthew 28) and all sorts of questions humans need to know the answers to. It also gives great ideas on how to relate to others (Do to others what you would want them to do with you/A new commandment I give to you: love one another as I have loved you). Most of all, it is a book of relationships: God with us, and us with God, us with each other....so much to learn in a relationship.
  •   No!   The Bible is a book of history and guidance for peoples of certain times. The Old Testament was meant for the societies and peoples of ancient times. The New Testament was meant to change much of the Old Testament law and to guide the society and people of two thousand years ago. The Bible worked during the time periods it was meant to cover. Its guidance protected the people and gave value and purpose to their lives. The problem is that the Bible was meant for past eras and was successful therein. It, however, did not keep up with the times and technologies during the advancement of mankind. There may still be some lessons that can be learned from studying the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. But, the lessons must be tempered with the knowledge that exists in the current time period. Man and his technology has evolved considerably since Biblical times. The Bible has not evolved accordingly. It is therefore the province of man to interpret the whole Bible and attempt to allow its relevant parts to fit into the lifestyles of the current era. As long as they do not infringe on the rights of others, men are free to follow the teachings of the Bible for themselves. Your rights and beliefs end where mine begin.     From my chosen path i stray, Yet my God ne'er turns away; For i have learned -- and understand, That where God is -- is where i am!
  • It answers questions principly. That is to say it might not address an issue directly, but it will address the human flaws and dynamics of the question. Did you have a particular question in mind???
  • Not really. It leaves you with more questions.
  • if you want it to it could. but i think that you can find an answer anywhere. personal truths are very subjective and rely on many variables that are difficult to compare to each other. "the line that defines is easily swayed" if you are looking for answers you will find them, but you decide your own reality.
  • If one believes it so.
  • ir you're a christian, i think it would make sense for it to have the answers to the main questions in life. if you're not, then no, it doesn't.
  • Yes, the Bible answers questions about the past, the present, and the future. It tells us where we came from, what the meaning of life is, how we can find happiness, and what the future holds for us. No other book in history has been as influential as the Bible; nor has any other book survived so many attacks. Through his inspired Word, Jehovah God gives satisfying answers to life’s most important questions. He offers comfort and hope to those who are troubled. And he shows us how we can draw close to him
  • Only to those to whom it is given.
  • Hell yes! Consider the following conundrums... Your army is camped near someone's country. Some of your soldiers nick off and shag a few of their women. Do you: a) Admonish your soldiers, telling them to keep their ephods zipped? b) Execute your soldiers for breaking their god's law? c) Slaughter all the country's men, all their women, all their young boys and enslave all the virgin girls? The bible's answer is, of course, c). Or. A family member steals some gold from an islamic mosque. Do you: a) Tell him to give the gold back and apologise? b) Stone him to death. Stone his wife to death. Stone his children to death. Stone his pets to death. Drag all his belongings into the front yard, pile the bodies on top and light the lot? The bible's answer is, of course, b)...
  • yes, the major ones...to God and your wife and children..wise decisions ... you have to want the Bibles answers and help and lots don't... Proverbs is the best place a man can start...wise insight...
  • The bible contains deep wisdom oftentimes written in parables and metaphorically. The reader must be mindful of the language variations of the age. If you were given a book on economics and algebra, a topic unfamiliar to you, you would not have any direction as to theories and formulae for solving the given sums. Similarly religion requires a faith and love to be completely understood. Not having a love of the creator for the creator or regard for the writers imbues man with a scorn and disdain. If you were to approach a biography of Elvis with a negative attitude you would not understand why he was such a phenomenally loved figure. Generally.
  • Not to my life questions...
  • not for me, but I guess it works for a lot of people that want it spoon fed to them instead of going out there and figuring out what life is about and what life's answers are to you on your own terms and by your own mistakes and accomplishments
  • Nope. I doubt your'll find any worth knowing.
  • The bible does contain answers for many people. For many others it does not. Like many teachings or books the answers vary with the seeker and their level of understanding. For me, I sought answers from a variety of sources not just the bible. If individuals were able to find every answer they ever needed from one source then there would be no need for other spiritual/religious works or even this website. A true seeker is not intolerant or judgmental of another's beliefs or of their doctrines for there is no us and them, only us.
  • Simply put, No. People's lives are vastly different from one another, there is no panacea in life. Look inside yourself, the answers you are looking for come from inside your head and inside your heart only.
  • I know this, when it is bad, and it has been many, many times, I don't know what I would of done if it had know been for knowing HE WAS THERE...
  • I am not sure, but the answer is 42.
  • no, I looked, there is nothing about changing the transmission on a '64 Falcon
  • Yes, but you have to know where to look. The Sermon on the Mount has the secret in it. Generally speaking, the Original Kingdom Gospel is about how to increase the light of God. (light coming into the world) And when this light increases, then life becomes easier... and life makes more sense. The light of God solves problems. But of course, I am speaking about the Kingdom Gospel, rather than the Pauline gospel that is so popular these days. This resource will explain the difference... http://gospelenigma.com And will explain how to brighten up with God's light for real happiness.
  • Best Place to Start: Proverbs..young and old ....
  • Indirectly it does... but you have to know where to look. You have to comprehend what Jesus was talking about in the Sermon on the Mount. He was speaking about a complete TRANSFORMATION of the person and he was also speaking about the light of God in that same sermon. To back up what I am saying, look up what Jesus said about "Sacrifice" and about "Light." He was negative with reference to the first and completely positive with reference to light. So he was bringing LIGHT to the world and all the answers are in that Light of God. This will explain what I am talking about: http://gospelenigma.com That ebook is a revival of the Kingdom Gospel (not the popular Pauline gospel we hear these days). So yes, all questions are answered in the light of God.
  • Yes but unless you are born again and have the holy spirit interpreting you will never be able to make sense of the bible.
  • No, not unless you believe in mythology.
  • Where can I find good pizza in Seattle? I checked cover to cover and the answer isn't in there.
  • Yes, Seek and you shall find, and knock and it shall be opened unto you.
  • Sure does. He said if you seek you will find. Jesus is the same yesterday and forever. What a great God who has all the answers to lifes questions.
  • I would say a cursory examination of the questions posed on this site would eliminate that possibility. I will remark that I believe it provides answers for life's most important questions, and provides a sort ruler against which everything may be measured.
  • Yes it does, and prepare your way of thinking to be forever changed to be more like what God says and less of how you think. IN the process, you'll not desire so much of what this world has to offer, believe it!
  • absolutely
  • I think what it actually does is regress knowledge by setting up boundaries. Beyond it being a complete book of massacres and the occasional evident common sense, I don't see much in it that doesn't usher a wall around potential and free thinking.
  • yes of course...all religious systems have a moral compass to direct people towards fairness and justice... the bible is perhaps the best. the american laws, and even common law, were fashioned after biblical and other religious principles
  • It depends. If you are a Christian who believes in the Bible, then yes, it does. If you do not believe, then no, it does not. Hope this helps. By the way, have you read Lawrence C. Kute's book on how to clip your daughter's golden retriever's claws? Have a look. Quite enlightening for those who believe in golden retrievers.
  • Only if you're Christian.
  • i doubt it, but like most if not all religious teachings, i dont think its meant as a rulebooks as much as its meant to be a resource for good values. (this is coming from a non-christian POV by the way)
  • yes it does. Whose asking?
  • B-Basic I-Instruction B-Before L-Leaving E-Earth- It is the basics on how God wants you to live your live for Him, how God wants you to treat others, and how to be forgiven for your sins through the blood of Jesus Christ, and how to share and grow your faith. It does not have all the answers to all the questions we may have, but it will tell you what God expects of you and how He wants you to live.
  • the bible is just a bunch of stories written by men and its all contradictions. If a person thinks it works for their life, it will. I personally studied it for years and it did me no good so I don't think so but that's my opinion.
  • Most definately !
  • Sure does, Read it.
  • Nope, just a few.
  • The Bible i believe contain the instructions on life and gives us an example through the life Jesus, and admonises us to follow him daily with much pray and patience.
  • The Bible does not contain all the answers to life's questions, obviously. But the Bible is a foundation and a tool to view the world with and understand it better. It does hold answers to questions such as "why do bad things happen to good people?" or "why are we here?", but it obviously doesn't contain the answer to "what did I have for breakfast yesterday?"
  • It contains a version of a million other human stories told over the course of time. It is like any other journey through this place... Like The Bardos, like afterlives in Egyptian fokelore, like valhalla, like paradise with virgins... All of these accounts of life are viable and pertinent... THey were written from very unique perspectives but they all run along a sympathetic line and they all say basically the same thing in different ways. I chose the path of The Jews through Christ, because something inside me simply felt a pull toward that path. It is a choice and a faith based belief system. One that we all share no matter the path that we take to arrive there. TO the knowledge that we are not meaningless mistakes or accidental happenstance. That we as a people mean something, that we have a purpose and a lineage that stems from a source as we interpret that source both indivisually and as a part of a group, in the very best way that we can.
  • yes it does contain all the important questions that we need to know for life, happiness and love, for family life, personal life, ect. You name it, if we need to know he'll give us the answer. If we accually want to know it from Him, because his answers are not necessarilly the ones we may want to hear but they're certainly the ones we need to know and would benefit from if we take them seriously as coming from our Great Benefactor.
  • .. and then some.
  • If the Bible really contains all the answers to life's questions, I'd hate the see the questions!
  • If you are reading the right chapter and understanding what you are reading, then yes.
  • The bible does not contain "all the answers". It does not have a recipe for meatloaf. It doen not tell you how to rebuild the engine on a 1964 Chevy. But it does have everything you need to know for salvation and relationships with other people. It tells you how to find God. Once you are filled with the Holy Spirit, he will guide you and give you help in all areas of your life.
  • No otherwise there would be no point in Answerbag.
  • No, just the ones of eternal importance. On all lesser matters, it guides and arguably trumps all worldly wisdom with the simple dictum: "Do the right thing." ... which is all too often also the hard thing.
  • No. For example, in Exodus, one verse forbids us from killing (20:13), while another verse exhorts us to kill (32:27), so the question of whether it is right to kill or not is unanswered.
  • The bible easily creates more problems in life than it solves no contest.
  • No it doesn't on a note like you are in a situation and you don't know what to do. If you have an option A and and option B, you are undecided which to do. Both could be good options, but you can't open the bible look it up and it tell you to choose option B. That is not how it works. The bible gives us words of encourgment and builds our faith in God then we must pray to God and seek Gods will for us to get the answer to our question. So therefore I say no not the bible, however God does, but you have got to have a relationship with him and talk to him and seek his guidance in order to recieve his answer to your troubles.
  • Yes it does, but whether or not they are the correct answers is questionable. In fact,most Religions give answers to lifes questions, but we can never be sure if they are correct or whether any genuine answers to these questions really exist.
  • No, if it did it would take away all the fun of life.
  • Oh yes, I know for sure because it has changed me and it is my manual for life.
  • Well. Here's one. What do you do to a man who is collecting fire wood on the Sabbath? Answer: Stone him to death. This is according to the Old Testament. And another: What do you do if a crowd of men outside your house ask to have the angels that God has sent you so that they may 'know' them? Answer: Give them your daughters instead so that they may do with them as they please. Story of Lot and the Sodomites.
  • Yes it does. 1Corinthians 4:14 But the natural man receiveith not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
  • what if 'heaven and hell' were right here on earth? what if 'life after death' means that your DNA lives on through your progeny. no progeny, you're just gone? the bible is a set of parables on living life. if all life's questions were answered in the bible we wouldn't have hundreds of misinterpreted beliefs. they would be understood by all and set in stone.
  • and all of the next life's questions as well
  • No, it doesn't. The Bible primarily serves as a moral guidebook for a particular faith. Some questions have nothing to do with ethics, so the Bible doesn't provide an answer for them. One example is, "What kind of job should I have?" Unless you are considering being a bank robber, a prostitute, or a hit man (which is against the 10 commandments), then the Bible really can't offer you any career advice.
  • Every last question you have. ☺
  • one time i was looking for a recipe for a spinach quiche, and the only book my friend had available was the bible. nothing in there about a quiche of any kind. so, no.
  • The Bible contains principle's that can be used to make good decisions. It also answers some of the more important questions, such as: Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? Why does God permit suffering? Is this life all there is? But it's not a rule book. Principles are the ideas on which laws are based. Such as, treat others as you'd like to be treated.
  • HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL NO !!!!!
  • Oh, But of course,try and see. I have gained such healing in my life from the Word of God. I use this as my manual for life. No greater book around.
  • thats what I believe... even though i am still looking....
  • Yes, though the purpose of the Bible is Jesus, and He is synonymous with salvation, for His name literally means salvation and only thanks to His ultimate sacrifice can any have true salvation. The key is to take the Bible as It is, and don't read your own thoughts into it. The Bible is holy, and while man can naturally understand some of it, you need the Holy Spirit to get the real meaning of many passages.
  • Yes it does. Get a Strong's Concordance. So you can find what you are looking for, and go to the Bible and read it.
  • No, it's a story book.
  • No. The Bible contains some good advice and a good moral code ... but not all of life's answers.
  • No. In some instances it is confusing. But it is a pretty good general guide.
  • No it doesn't .What may seem to the right answer for you may not be so to a bhuddist or a muslim. People have different faiths and look up to whoever or whatever they believe in as a role model and build their life around their faith . There are various religions and beliefs people follow the path of their beliefs but it does not neccessarily mean it is the right path or the right answer. For instance in the Quran there is a writing about Holy War, a lot of muslims who are in turmoil seem to believe that the answer to their problems is war and they are willing to go through any extreme for this belief. But it does not mean this is the right answer.
  • If those are the answers, I'd hate to know what the questions are!
  • If it did, AnswerBag would not exist.
  • No. The Bible does not contain all of life's answers. It only contains all of the answers to instruct a life acceptable to God. The Bible does not tell how to rebuild a 63 Chevy 350 carberator. It doesn't tell what temperature your Thanksgiving Turkey should be roasted at. But if you follow the intructions that God gave through his Son, Jesus Christ, your life will be better. But you have to have faith. Many scoff. Actually what they're doing is denying. Every heart actually knows the real truth. Some people deny because they know the price to pay is giving up what they want from this earth(Search: The seven deadly sins). I find it perculiar, though. We say we know what happened a million, 5 million, 20 million years ago. We've got Neanderthal, Cro Magnons, primordial seas, "billions and billions", red giants, dwarf stars, black holes, quantum physics, etc., etc. Yet we deny what happened 2000 years ago. JUST 2000 YEARS AGO. Look up Nebuchadnezzar II on Wikepedia. This must be true. It's in Wikipedia, right. Wait, though. It's in the Book of Daniel, too. So it must be a lie, huh? This was 600 BC. By the way, BC means Before Christ. What on earth happened 2000 years ago that was so extraordinary that even time, itself(the calendar) proclaims the event. Do you remember the lyrics to one of the songs on Jesus Christ, Superstar. It goes something like this. "Tell the rable to be quiet we anticipate a riot, this common crowd, is much too loud..." Then Jesus sings, "Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd. Nothing can be done to stop the shouting. If every tongue were still the noise would still continue. THE ROCKS AND STONES THEMSELVES WOULD START TO SING. If you shut up everyone on earth from talking about the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the rocks themselves would cry out with the truth. Please don't ignore something that happened only a few year ago. Jesus suffered, died, and was buried, and on the 3rd day, He rose up and conquered death and sin for all of those who believe in Him. Don't be like the others...wasting your breath moaning at the crowds. Believe, and you will be saved. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) Public Domain
  • no it diesn't .. try Koran it's really good
  • No. I think like in any book about life, culture time and place you can find some questions seemingly answered but all the answers? no.
  • Yes. But the Lord will only reveal to you what he wants you to know. You can read and read a scripture and if he doesn't think it is time it will be nonsense to you. Then when yo least expect it you will be given the answer.
  • No. if it does we would know it by now
  • i like to think so! but maybe it doesnt, but it for sure help with them
  • And where is this leading? does AnswerBag really contain all the answers to life's questions? Is AnswerBag send from Heaven? Hmm
  • No, that's why we have denominations. They fill the gaps.
  • No, it does not. It is a work of fiction, and while it may help teach some things with some parables, the negatives in it far outweigh the positives.
