There are many kinds of Bibles because there are many kinds of people.  But they all contain the same message.  Different Bibles meet different needs.  Some Bibles are very small so you can carry them with you.  Others are big so you can see the words better.  Some Bibles use everyday words to make the Bible easy to read  and the lessons easy to learn.  Some Bibles have notes, maps, and charts to help people understand the parts that are different from today.  The purpose of all these different Bibles is to help people understand what God is saying so they can obey him.

Key Verse: 1 Timothy 4:13

Why did God make mosquitoes?

When we’re being attacked by mosquitoes, it’s easy to wonder why God made pests and other animals that can harm us.  When God created the world, it was perfect.  Only after sin entered the picture did animals and human beings become enemies, causing humans to protect and defend themselves.  So now mosquitoes try to feed off of us.  They, in turn, become food for birds and bats.  In the future, in the new heaven and new earth, animals won’t hurt people or each other.

Key verses: Isaiah 11:6-9

When we’re bad, can we still pray?

A person can pray at any time and in any need.  When people do bad things or make mistakes, they need God more than at any other time.  When we…

A person can pray at any time and in any need.  When people do bad things or make mistakes, they need God more than at any other time.  When we do something wrong, we need to talk with God about it.  We need to admit that what we did was wrong, say that we’re sorry, and ask him to forgive us.  That is the first thing we should pary when we do something bad.  Then God can help us learn so that we can do better next time.  God knows we are not perfect, and he wants to help us by giving us wisdom and helping us change.

If we ait until we are good enough to pray, we will never pray.

Key Verse: Luke 18:13-14

Why do we have to put money in the bank when we have our own piggy banks?

A bank lets you do a lot more with your money than just store it.  If someone has money in the bank, he or she can write checks, get small…

pioggybank_postA bank lets you do a lot more with your money than just store it.  If someone has money in the bank, he or she can write checks, get small amounts of money out as it is needed, and pay bills from the money in the bank.

A bank has other benefits too.  It pays you a little bit for keeping your money, it keeps the money safe, and it can hold as much as you’ll ever get.  It’s fun to put money in a piggy bank. But sooner or later you’ll want to have a bank account.

Key verse:  Ezra 8:29

christian_cross_fish_150God wrote the Bible over many, many years, a long time ago– long before computers, cars, and even before books.  The people who wrote down God’s words used scrolls of paper made from papyrus leaves and animal skin.  They wrote it over a period of 1,500 years, from the time of Moses to the apostle John.  Even though the Bible was written hundreds of years before we were born, it is still up-to-date.  When we read the stories and understand what God is saying, we learn how we should live today.

Key Verses:  Hebrews 1:1-2

How do we know that what the Bible says is True?

The Bible is true because it is God’s Word, and God always speaks the truth.  When you read the Bible, you will see that it says it is the Word of God.

christian_cross_fishThe Bible is true because it is God’s Word, and God always speaks the truth.  When you read the Bible, you will see that it says it is the Word of God.  The Bible also says that every word in it is true.  But if that doesn’t convince you, read the Bible and see for yourself that everything makes sense.  When you read it, you will think, This sounds right!  This is true.  The Bible has also proven to be true over the many hundreds of years since it was written.  For example, many events predicted in the Bible have happened, just as it said they would.

Key verse: 2 Timothy 3:16
