Answers


People need answers and many want answers. Of course, we are talking about answers that help us get to heaven. These answers should be so well known that from a child you understood these things to be true. As you grew you questioned what you were taught and still found them to be true. The truthful answers are consistent and fit together like puzzle pieces and then the entire picture is clear. Heaven Coach contains that kind of information on every page and there are some pages just devoted to answering specific questions, like:
A to Q
Answering Questions About God

The reason people from an early age do not know a singular truthful teaching is because the answers are not what people want to hear. That is, the answers from God, from God’s word are troublesome for many people – they interfere with HOW I WANT TO LIVE. In the framework of God’s perfect test, God does not want these people for heaven. The scriptures emphasize a person having a love of the truth. In other words, such a person will not be satisfied with less than the truth even if it is painful.

Interestingly, some of the answers are the the answers to multiple questions. So, in some cases there will be an answer given and then a list of all the questions that are answered in this way.


There are two parts to this ANSWER page. First, an answer that is the same for different questions and then some very basic questions, maybe the most asked with relatively short answers. An example of the latter might be, “Is there an answer to my depression?” OR “Why do I exist?”

Basic Questions, Short ANSWERS

In this section, answers are true, but short. In order to help your understanding there are links that go into great detail in answering your question.

Question 1:

Is there an answer to my depression?

Short Answer 1:

I am sure, professionals in this area will not like my answer and that is because such a large population of such professionals either are Atheists, Agnostics or people who simply put no confidence in the scriptures. Unfortunately, this means you will not be getting the very best help, the very best answer. They are able to help some depressed persons for a while in some instances and often rely on drugs, but with regularity they fail. Quite often the patient goes on to suicide.
Here is the answer you need:
First, understand that life is about the soul. You will not go out of existence when you die. Life is also a test designed by God to determine those worthy of spending a wonderful eternity with Him. Thus, how you live will determine your eternity. What matters in the end is how God views you life. He will view all life’s in terms of sin and you need forgiveness. Some people have the right attitude and will obey God and find the happiness such as God defines in Revelation.

Revelation 21.4

4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.

God compares the suffering of this present time to what awaits in heaven.

Romans 8.18

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.


The characteristics of God’s people are things like humility, selflessness, courage, open mindedness, lovers of the truth, kind, considerate and so-on. Anyone can live this way if they want to badly enough, if they want heaven badly enough.
God’s people are sad about the sins they have committed, but are aware they are forgiven and need to continue to live faithfully. They realize they have a savior in Jesus, their mediator, their advocate and await their end – that is their death or Christ’s return if they are alive at the end of the world.

There is ONE God and Father, ONE LORD (Jesus), ONE Spirit (the Holy Spirit), One Faith, One Baptism, ONE Hope of our calling, and ONE body – the body of Christ (the kingdom, the spiritual church). You have one life and then the judgment. This ONE hope is your only hope as well as the only hope for all of humankind.
Yes, there is an answer for your depression and it is the ONE hope that God provides. Depression in the ultimate sense, in the most dreaded sense will be reality for those who reject the ONE hope. This is the beauty – you can decide to be successful beyond your wildest expectations. While you are alive this hope and being around people who have this similar hope will completely change view of life. This is regardless of your past, regardless of your fears and yes this is all possible – find the courage a little at a time. Finally, you will be able to help yourself and even be able to help others – impossible. No, because with God all things are possible.

Matthew 19.26

26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”


You need to endure to the end. You can make heaven your home, but you will not achieve it in weakness in giving up on God – for He will not give up on you.

Matthew 10:22

22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.


One other thing, the world makes every malady to be something you cannot avoid, it is not your fault. They can treat you, good ask them to treat you for free. The truth is all people are depressed to some degree at some time in their life’s. That depression can grow or you can take hold of your life. Indeed as it grows, it will become more difficult – so break out of it now and get serious about your soul. God in the scriptures can provide you an entirely different, better, exciting view of life that is TRUE.
One thing a professional does is to give you a person to talk to, to share confidences/concerns/worries and that is good to talk about these things – find someone who realizes God exists and knows you will also exist after death and uses the wisdom of the creator in helping you.

Question 2:

I observe from reading “Catholic’s Question” or “Heaven Coach” that the Christian world is drastically different than the scriptures and it seems is diametrically opposed to God. The most fundamental principles of the word of God are mishandled by the ones who claim Christ as their Savior. How can this be?

Short Answer 2:

Of course, “Catholic’s Question” or “Heaven Coach” are not the authority, but God’s word. “Catholic’s Question” or “Heaven Coach” merely challenge the beliefs of those who so blatantly misuse God’s word. The same criteria needs to used to judge everything spiritual and that of course, includes “Catholic’s Question” or “Heaven Coach.” God’s severity regarding changing His word is frightening and indeed I am frighted in relation to misleading people. Nonetheless, not teaching has its severe penalty. The only conclusion is to teach the truth, be very accurate and pray about what you teach. God’s word all fits perfectly together and in this there is assurance. God and only God deserves the credit for the message and those who carefully, correctly bring the message are only servants and delighted to have the honor.
It is indeed sad that over history since the first century very few people have respected the truth delivered by God through the Holy Spirit. What we see as Christianity today and even beginning to deteriorate in the first century is different than what God wanted and what God requires.
Paul writing to the Galatians indicated the truth from God had was being changed and was amazed that this was occurring so soon.

Galatians 1.6-9

6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 
7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 
8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 
9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.


Jesus knew that false teaching would be prevalent after He was gone and even in the midst of His miracles few held to the truth, even crucifying Him.

Matthew 7.15

15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.


The faith is what was delivered and confirmed by the Holy Spirit in the first century and the doctrines replacing that faith would be full of deceit and cost the souls of many.

1 Timothy 4.1-4

1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 
2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 
3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving;

So, the fact that there would be changes to what God delivered is no surprise to God and God’s response to such should not be a surprise to humankind. God hates those who are deceitful, who handle His word carelessly and they will receive the wrath of God. It is serious and in this day in age it is common and yet the truth is there, the truth God wants you to have.

The areas where God’s word has been terribly abused include:
> The Church
> The Church is the Kingdom
> The Plan of Salvation
> Sin
> Worship
> The End Of The World


Just about everything in God’s word has been abused, because once a person or a group goes down the road of speaking for God, preferentially filtering God’s word the errors never stop.
Look at the Catholic church there is nothing in that religion that is true. One might say, they believe in Jesus and I would suggest that those who believe in Jesus do what He says. They follow the doctrine of Christ. They reason that Matthew 16.16-19 gives them the authority to make the rules. The irony is that the word of God, which they hold so precious (in Matthew 16.16-19) they then proceed to neglect the rest of scripture, which emphatically rejects the idea of a pope and earthly authority to make the rules.
I often refer to Catholicism as diametrically opposed to the doctrine of Christ. Below are some examples and there is plenty of evidence of these things on these pages (Catholic’s Question) at the “Heaven Coach Website and in the book, “What Is Life All About?”
In the bible there is:

No pope or idea of such
No priests in the New Covenant
No Cardinals
There are bishops or elders in the local church and they are to be the husband of one wife
No Confession of sins to a priest
No Mass
No councils
No universal earthly church, the universal church is spiritual
No sacraments
No mystery of the faith
No venial or mortal sins
No Eucharist
No intercession by Mary or any other person – Christ is the only intercessor to the Father
No holy days
No celebration of Christ’s birth
No infant baptism
No statues
No Purgatory
No special saints, all of God’s children are referred to as saints
and on and on


Anything you can associate with Catholicism will not be found in the bible.
Yet, there it is Matthew 16.16-19 and it is used to give Catholics authority to make the rules. Yet, the scriptures teach that the church (spiritual) is built on Jesus, specifically confessing Jesus as the Christ as Peter did and upon that confession the church is built. Jesus said, I will build My church and indeed Jesus adds to the church daily such as are being saved – Acts 2.47.


We could easily construct a similar long list of “No’s” from the bible for the Protestant doctrines.
You are right, the Christian world you observe is drastically different than the scriptures. Heaven Coach helps to point out these things, although they are perfectly obvious in scripture. How can this be, you ask? Simply, because people saw opportunities to gain power by claiming they were speaking for God and provided their interpretation of God’s word. Many others, do not like the rules from God because they interfere with how they want to live. Thus, it is easy to accept the many “comfortable” inventions of humankind in relation to the scriptures.
There is truth and there is error and you can find the truth, but many love the error to the destruction of their souls.
