Reviews For Bible Answers Live

Worth your time.
This is very informative. The answers the two pastors give are Bible based and non-compromising. I've listened to these episodes and one thing I've noticed is that the answers are not biased at all. May God bless them indeed.
Very good podcast to listen to while doing stuff

5/5

Thanks for helping us better understand God's word!
Totally Bible Based! This indeed, is a man of God! He's not like the other well know radio host that cuts you off when he disagrees with you because you begin quoting scripture. Pastor Bachelor, don't let your bright light go out.
If you want to know what the Bible says about something, and not a man's opinion, this is the show for you!
Excellent! God truly speaks through you pastor bachelor. May God give you the wisdom to know that you are using the gifts that He has given you for His honor and glory.

Study the Word, not individual post. If you truly love the Lord you owe it to yourself. If you study, pray and dedicate yourself to the truth you will not be deceived by the ignorant and foolish. May God Bless you and keep you as the day approaches. Eric
The review number 1 and 2, in the most critical review section may have been not quite read their bible in detail. The statements both of you made were false. Doug Batchelor said exactly what the Bible teaches. I'm afraid you have come to the wrong interpretation from those verses. Matter fact why don't you call in to the station and ask Doug Batchelor yourself. He will clear that fog up for you. There is a free book offered from amazing facts called "Absent from the body" it breaks down that particular verse. In the archive of bible answers live he answers the "was Jesus asleep for 3 day question". Furthermore I could careless what denomination they are as long as they tell me Bible truth. They say exactly what the bible says! The bible says Saturday the seventh day of the week is Holy. It will always be Holy. The Bible or anybody in the Bible never said Sunday was Holy. Maybe the Sabbath being one of the 10 commandments may be more important than you think. We are commanded to keep all 10 not 9 of the commandments. Worry about that. By the law is the knowledge of sin and if you break the 4th commandment you are just as guilty of sin as a murderer, adultery,stealer,coveter..etc. Read James 2:10. Now the answer to your statement is in his free book "absent from the body". May God continue to bless us both. First, let’s clarify what Paul’s “earnest expectation” really was in regard to being with Christ. Did he expect to be with Him at death? Not one text of the Bible teaches such a thing. Let the apostle answer for himself concerning his “earnest expectation.” “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19. What was that manifestation when the sons of God would be revealed? Verse 23 answers, “… we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” Paul’s earnest expectation and hope was for the time when his body would be redeemed. He did not say one word in Philippians 1:20-24 about the TIME he would be with the Lord. Some have attempted to interpret this text as though Paul said he wanted to depart and be with Christ immediately, but the word immediately is not in the scripture. In these verses, Paul does not specifically state WHEN he will be with the Lord. He only states his “earnest expectation” to be there. We have found from other scriptures that his expectation centered on the resurrection or translation of the body. Other passages further clarify without any equivocation when the great apostle expected to be with Christ. Romans 8:23 At the redemption of the body 1 Corinthians 5:5 In the day of the Lord Jesus 1 Corinthians 15:51-55 At the last trump Colossians 3:4 When Christ our life shall appear 1 Thessalonians 4:16 When the Lord descends with a shout 2 Thessalonians 2:1 At the coming of the Lord 2 Timothy 4:7, 8 At “that day” (by which Paul means the second advent of Christ) Paul had two conditions in view: to live or to die. Between these two, he was in a strait. The cause of God on earth drew him here, but he was weary from beatings, stonings, and bodily suffering. He almost felt that death would be desirable over the struggle of living. So evenly balanced were the influences drawing him in both directions that he hardly knew which course he preferred. Nevertheless, he said it was more needful for the church that he remain here to give them the benefit of his counsel and labor. 9 How to be with the Lord Paul positively refuted the idea of an immortal spirit leaving the body at death when he pinpointed the ONLY means of being with the Lord. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 he said, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and SO shall we ever be with the Lord.” Please note the significance of that word “SO.” It means “in this way,” “in this manner,” “by this means.” “SO,” in this manner, by this means, “shall we ever be with the Lord.” By describing, without any limitation, the way and means by which we go to be with the Lord, Paul precludes every other means. If there is any other way of getting to be with the Lord, then Paul’s language is a stupendous falsehood. If we go to be with the Lord by means of our immortal spirit when we die, then we do not go to be with Him by means of the visible coming of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead and the change of the living. Then Paul’s words would not be true. There is no possible way of avoiding this conclusion, except by claiming that the descent of the Lord from heaven, the mighty shout, the trumpet, the resurrection of the dead, and the change of the living, ALL TAKE PLACE WHEN A PERSON DIES—a position too absurd to be considered. Since Paul himself so carefully defines the manner of going to be with the Lord, why should man try to interpret Philippians 1:23 to mean something contrary to the writer’s own explanation? As we have just noted from 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, Paul knew of only two ways to be with the Lord—by translation or resurrection.
I can find no better exposition of God's word, extemporaneously given!
I have not seen anything better than this to date. Well done!
...that this is a Seventh Day Adventist-based podcast. If this is your faith, Pastor Doug is extremely knowledgeable. I listened to many of these podcasts until he answered a listener's question about "soul sleep." As a long-time Christian, I have always believed that we are absent from the body and present with the Lord until the day when He gloriously comes again. This is one essential doctrine, that I cannot waver from in my life with Christ. Again, if you are a Seventh-Day Adventist this podcast is for you.
Someone wrote a very critical review a year ago. This is in response. I have never read anything on their website that disagreed with my Christian beliefs. And I DID go to their website to check their statement of faith, and what they believe. I agree with every point on their website, check it for yourself: We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is profitable for correction, reproof, and instruction in righteousness. (See 2 Timothy 3:16.) We believe that Jesus is the eternal, self-existent God and is not a created being. Even though He is fully God, He took upon Himself the form of a man to live and die for our sins. We believe that the penalty for man's sin was paid on the cross of Calvary in Jesus' death. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). By believing on Jesus Christ and accepting the grace of His shed blood, we receive the gift of eternal life. "Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:9). Because we love Jesus for His sacrificial death, we want to obey Him as he commands in John 14:15. We are not saved by our works. But, because we are saved, we choose to keep His commandments as the guide for successful living. We believe that prophecy reveals Jesus is coming again very soon. (See Matthew 24:32-51.)
I love it
Thank you for this amazing source!
Faithful teachers , to the reveiwer below you are incorrect in your statement , the NIV text is designed to support catholic doctrine of prayers for the dead , i suggest you refer to KJV OR NKJV for better accuracy , or search itunes for total onslaught by "walter j veith " listen to his podcasts on bible accuracy and misinterpretations caused by altered texts resulting in the newer bibles used today. Search out your questions on what did jesus do in the KJV bible and you will find these pastors are in fact accurate ! , your NIV is the inaccurate reference.
look forward to this podcast every week. Thanks for uploading

I really respect his attitude and sincerity. It is bibical truth, no holds barred. His answers are built on many text. I like that. If there was a better I'd like to see it. Keep up the good work. I listen while I work on my iPhone. Better than the crude on the radio by a long shot :-)
Pastor Doug & Ross are inspiration to young ministers like myself to study to show ourselves approved unto GOD & to be ready to give an answer for the faith that is within us.
This is the best bible answer podcast ever. Pastor Doug and Jean gives it to you plain and simple. No gimmicks just straight from the bible.
Best Bible answers I'v found. I highly recommend this podcast.
Doug is very inspriational very informative.
Wonderful Program! Great Answers!!!
I've been listening for about a year now and find the program educational and true to the Word. If you want insights into what the Bible has to say on a particular topic of interest to you I'd highly recommend listening to a few episodes to get a feel for the program and then call in with your question during the live broadcast.
The truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God.
Great program for those who are doing Bible study. Answers are easy to understand and follow along in the Bible. A must have for serious Bible study!

Doug is the best when it comes to Biblical knowledge and explanation of scriptures. He is truly blessed by God and has the ability to give us a clear understanding of the God's Word. I'm glad the Lord led me to your ministry. Thanks Pastor Doug!
I really enjoy this program. People call in and discuss questions they have. Doug Batchelor is very knowledgable. Good program.
This is a great podcast! I really enjoy the knowledgeable, practical, respectful way Pastor Doug handles each caller's questions. The show is fast paced, and lighthearted. It's an hour show that seems like it's over way too soon. Highly recommended!!!
