This page is not intended for new believers, unless you have already come across the subjects, and have serious questions about them already. These issues are the ones that still divide scholars with lifetimes of Bible study behind them. On these issues, I do not consider myself an expert. I have struggled with each one of them, and in some cases, the struggle itself has tested and strengthened my faith. Before I had somewhat of a grounding in the Bible, issues like these simply left me feeling confused, lost, and helpless. On the other hand, the study of these issues forced me to dig deeper into the Bible than I might have otherwise.
