Differences exist among Bible texts and interpretations of them.   A partial list of those encountered in compiling the information on this web site are listed here.  The differences are among men and their limits of understanding and not from or caused by the Messenger.  Please note that this author does not accept the arguments of all the resources presented on this web site.  Many of the resources are used to show all sides of the difference of opinion.  Ultimately there are only two sides to any of these discussions, the Truth which is God's and the other side which is Satan's.  Forgive us and enlighten us Lord if we make a mistake and come down on the wrong side of the discussion.  We are frail, fallible, imperfect, sinful humans that don't always understand even when we believe and try.  For example, this author leans towards the Calvinist arguments, if only because he knows God is Sovereign in all things, but many I know lean the other way, yet I accept them as believers.
