6 Confusing verses in the bible that needs clarification

This 6 verses in the bible makes Christians confused
Bible Verse to study 2019

1. ECCLESIASTES 7:16
“Be not righteous over much; neither be thou foolish; why shouldest thou die before thy time?”
This portion of the Bible has brought about different kinds of controversies and questions. With reference to this verse, the bible says we shouldn’t be over righteous, does it mean we can be committing a sin but not always?.

 Or does it mean that there are things we can accept or overcome without tagging it as sin. This portion of the Bible is quiet confusing because, the same Bible, Jesus Christ stated  “be yea perfect for your who is in heaven is perfect”.

Now what do we have to do I this context, where do we put our faith because there is no small sin, Sin is Sin.

2. ECCLECIASTES 7:20
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
What do we have to say about this, that there is no just ma I earth that sinneth not. New Translation Version of the Bible stated it this way “For there is no righteous man on earth who always does good ad never sins.”


So who will go to heaven?, if there is no man that does good always, that means everyone on earth even the Holy men of God have to sin or commit sin everytime to time?. In my own opinion I have come to conclude that, yes one can be a sinners at anytime but there is now a provision for the grace of God and for us to be conscious of our life, to know when we have sinned, also we should ask God to give  us the grace to be pure at the point when the trumpet will sound.

3. ECCLESIASTES 10:5-6
For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have  they any more reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
Verse 6 “ Also, their love , their hatred and their envy is now perished; neither have they more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun.

With reference to this passage, one will say that there is no need for burial ceremony, jubilating and wasting resources because the dead has no feeling. 

The experiences we got when a person spirit keeps troubling the household is because the fetish beliefs in the household. Let’s look at the western world, they perform a burial ceremony without any noise or purchasing of items used to feed people in the name of  burial ceremony.
The bible has given us a reason to deviate from the extravagant attitude which we use to celebrate the death.

4. 1CORINTHIANS 6:2-3
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

Verse 3: "Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?"


My emphasis in this context is on verse 3, how will we judge the angels, when stumbled with such Rhetorical question asked in the Bible, one becomes stumped on what to answer, because the imagination is wide. God has already stated somewhere in the Bible that “ye are small gods” so obviously does that mean, that’s the reason for the statement Made above?.

5. 1CORINTHIANS 14:34-35
Let your women keep silence In the churches for it is not permitted unto them to speak but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
Verse 35 “ And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is a shame for women to speak in Church."

This is a very debating passage which we need to talk about, in this verses of the Bible, there is a condemnation on women speaking in the Church. So what do we say about our female leaders in the church. This days, General Overseers are women, Women now appear on the Altar on a regular.

6. Luke 16:9 & 13
One will ask what is MAMMON? Mammon are those that have Unrighteous riches. Does it mean that we should make friends with those commits all Atrocities to gain riches? If it is Yes, Why is it still stated in Verse 13 “ye cannot serve God and mammon”

Please this listed portion of the Bible above are researched questions which some believers, unbelievers, back sliders have asked in respect of their faith. There is need for us to study the world of God and to be sure of the right path. 

If you have answers or clarification on the contests above, please do well to contribute in your very own best . Thank You.
