Well said. Looks like Anidod wants someone else to do the heavy lifting.

Who is Satan? Who is the Devil? Who is the Dragon? Who is the Serpent? - these are four of the names for are the same, fallen archangel who is also the leader of all the fallen angels. Satan is the leader of this fallen world's system, and as such, is referred to as this world's "prince". Satan is our enemy.

What is Hell? - the abode of the unsaved dead

Where is Hell? - :unsure:

Who goes to Hell? - this can be a bit confusing, but this might help you tie it all together: https://www.gotquestions.org/sheol-hades-hell.html

Is anyone in Hell? - yes

Why is pride sin, evil? - C. S. Lewis referred to pride as "The Great Sin" in his book, Mere Christianity (a must-read book, BTW, for all Christians). Pride (the kind the Bible is normally referring to anyway) causes us to assume that we are self-sufficient and have no need of God in some or in all things. The sin of Satan that resulted in his fall was pride.

Who is wisdom? - the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit

Why do we only use 66 books? - because these are the books that contain the "inspired" or (literally) "breathed" words of God. No other books do.

What is Eden? - the Garden of God where God first placed our race's progenitors, Adam and Eve, after He created them. It was in this Garden that they also chose to disobey God's command to them and fell into sin.

Where is Eden? - its location was marked by four rivers, two of which still exist, the Tigris and the Euphrates. It is believed to have been located somewhere inside modern day Iraq.

What are angels? - they are created spirit beings who serve God (and man). These are known as the elect angels. The fallen angels, who refuse to serve God and serve Satan instead, are referred to most often as demons. They hate God and hate those of us who are His as a result.

What purpose do we serve? - as the Westminster Shorter Catechism puts is, "the chief end of man is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever". Only the first half will be true for unbelievers however.

Whoops, gotta go. I'll come back later (Dv) and try to answer the rest of your questions (as best and as concisely as I can), unless someone else beats me to it :)

I would love to have short faq's but I believe that we can ask questions that can lead to helpful answers like these

to sum up Christianity: saved by grace to become more Christ-like

to become more Christ-like we need to develop the character of Christ

and that involves
desiring to know His character and wanting Him—His presence—more than any other thing He can give us
https://www.gotquestions.org/seek-Gods-face.html

and guarding one's heart can help the process of becoming more Christ-like

and
The apostle Paul instructs us, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8). Dwelling on these things will help to build a guard fence around our hearts. https://www.gotquestions.org/guard-your-heart.html

and Phil 4:8 should be self-explanatory, right?

Hi @Anidod, here is my part two :)

Why do humans have emotions? - because God loves us and gave them to us for our good and for our enjoyment. They became problematic for us, like almost everything else did, after our first parents disobeyed God and fell into sin (and us with them as their begotten progeny) . For more on emotions, this is a good place to start reading: https://www.gotquestions.org/managing-emotions.html

What are emotions? - our feelings

Where is paradise? :unsure:

What is paradise? Some might say a warm, tropical island with smooth, white sandy beaches and clear, blue waters ;) Or did you mean the "Paradise" that's mentioned in the Bible?

What does number 14 signify in the Bible? - the Messianic line was counted in groups of 14 .. Matthew 1:17. If I think of something else, I'll let you know. I don't believe 14 is a Biblical # with special significance like 3, 7, 40, etc. are.

Is anyone in paradise? - there was, as it was the abode of the believing dead before the Resurrection. Now? I don't think so :unsure:

If an angel can also signify a message, does that mean cherubims, seraphims can also signify something else? - angels are God's "messengers", not messages.

Who is the prophet? - someone who speaks for God to His people. False prophets "claim" to speak for God ... but they do not.

Does anyone know about the blue marble? - do you mean the picture that was taken from space of Earth by one of the Apollo crews :unsure:

Why do some people believe there is no life in other planets, galaxies if they've never been there? - lack of any tangible evidence whatsoever is at least one reason.

Where was Enoch and Elijah taken to? - "up" & "to Heaven" .. Genesis 5:24; Hebrews 11:5 & 2 Kings 2:11

Why can't flesh and blood be in heaven? - the perishable cannot inherit the imperishable. Our present bodies of flesh and blood must be transformed into a glorified, spiritual bodies when we are resurrected (like Jesus' earthly body was after His resurrection), as our earthly bodies are not suited for the eternity to come.

What is flesh, blood? What is a tree? What is a sword? What is a fig tree? What is an olive tree? - since I know that you know the obvious answers to all of these questions, what are your actual/specific questions about each of them instead :unsure:

Thanks!

Satan is the leader of this fallen world's system, and as such, is referred to as this world's "prince". Satan is our enemy. ~Deut
Is this suppose to be leviathan also ?

27 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

- the abode of the unsaved dead ~Deut

Pride (the kind the Bible is normally referring to anyway) causes us to assume that we are self-sufficient and have no need of God in some or in all things. The sin of Satan that resulted in his fall was pride. ~Deut
I wonder if there are different kinds of pride ?

1 John 2:16 For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-comes not from the Father but from the world.

- the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit ~Deut
Proverbs 8

Why do we only use 66 books?
- because these are the books that contain the "inspired" or (literally) "breathed" words of God. No other books do. ~Deut
So I was really asking why don't we use the deuterocanonical books?

- the Garden of God where God first placed our race's progenitors, Adam and Eve, after He created them. It was in this Garden that they also chose to disobey God's command to them and fell into sin. ~Deut
So Eden is actually a city, if you will.

Genesis 2:8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.

Genesis 2: 15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

- its location was marked by four rivers, two of which still exist, the Tigris and the Euphrates. It is believed to have been located somewhere inside modern day Iraq. ~Deut

I'm surprised you actually answered those questions. His real question behind all those questions was "How can I avoid studying and get others to do my homework"? And you just proved that he could accomplish that.

i'm not sure what you're saying and I thought I was having a discussion with him, my bad.
