           Hi, and welcome to Answereth a Matter.  This is a site designed to help assist in biblical study.  Everything written on this site is for the purpose of building up believers in the Messiah of Israel.  I would not consider my opinions to be mainstream, but please do not let that discourage you from using Answereth a Matter as a study tool.  Proverbs 18:13 states, "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him."  This verse shows the need to be willing to listen to anything, especially if we have never heard it before.  This does not mean we must believe it, but we do need to consider the matter before we answer it.  The New Testament echoes this statement in 1 Thess. 5:21 where the Apostle Paul says, "Prove (test) all things; hold fast that which is good."  Believers in the Messiah are supposed to have an open mind.

          Much of the site is dedicated to the Hebrew background of scripture.  Many times we forget that the Messiah was Hebrew (from the tribe of Judah) and practiced Hebrew Law.  Believers today tend to take God's law for granted and believe it is no longer relevant for today.  This is simply not true and a very unfortunate belief.  God's law was written for our benefit and it is good for us (Deut. 6:24).  Not practicing God's law can actually do us harm.  The Bible is a life instruction manual and God's laws are the instructions.  God told us exactly how He expects us to act, but many times we don't want to listen.  Of course, practicing God's law in no way removes grace or faith, but rather, faith "establishes" God's law (Rom. 3:31). 

          If you have never considered practicing the Law of God I would strongly encourage you to look into it.  One benefit from practicing God's law is mentioned in Psalm 111:10 where the Psalmist states, "a good understanding have all they that do his commandments."  If you want to understand the scriptures you need to start "doing his commandments."  James confirms this when he said, "be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves" (James 1:22).  We are only deceiving ourselves if we reject the Law of God.  Search this site with an open mind and see if God's law is right for you.  Check the references and challenge them to see if they are true.  The articles I have written are simply my opinions about a biblical topic.  Please feel free to contact me if you feel I am in error over anything.  I am simply looking for the truth and would love to hear your comments.  Thank you for viewing the site and I hope you are blessed as a result.

not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
