In the meantime, most of you will know Polly Gwinn with her knowledgeable and inspiring Bible Study articles here in WAYS OF LIFE. As so many people have so many questions on Bible Scripture which often don't need very long answers, Polly and I decided to open this YOU ASK-section. Up to now, the questions come from her many group members and are representative for almost all Christians in one way or another. Polly now also receives questions outside her group. So, whatever your questions on Bible Scripture, please don't hesitate to write them to her below indicated email address! Later, I will write them out here in ways that are not intrusive or violating to your privacy. And we hope that our answers will also be of interest for many of you, dear readers. If a certain question does not interest you, then please jump over to the next one!
Each one of the following Answer links contains a small number of questions plus their respective answer(s). As Polly hands the questions out to a small group of members, there might be more than just one answer. I will make a mention in brackets for each person answering other than Polly herself. I think it is very interesting to get answers from different persons with different aspects, angles and views. Just like Paul says in 1 Corianthians 13:9 and 12b, we now know in part!
