Question: Will our pets be with us in heaven when they die and where can I find scripture that says this?
Yes... God loves all His creations and all will be in the eternity as we will. You can read of it in (Isaiah 11:6-9). They will no longer be carnivores and even the lion will lie with the lamb in peace.
Question: Where does it say that it is God's will that we all will be saved?
You will find that it says that God is "longsuffering" that we will all come to repentance and not perish. (2 Peter 3:9).
Question: Can you show me in the bible where it says murderers and rapists should be put to death?
You will find your answer in (Deuteronomy 19:11-12, 22:25). If we followed this law there would be a lot less types of this crime committed.

You will find in (Hosea 14:8) that God says He is like a green fir tree. He is that evergreen that represents eternal life and that is why the Christmas tree is symbolic of the tree of life which is Christ. Christ is the vine and we are the branches in the family of God.
Question: What exactly is a righteous act? Is it studying the bible? I understand that it is kindness to others. What else constitutes a righteous act?
Yes, kindness to others is a good start. Lets take a look at the word righteousness. The Hebrew word for righteousness is tseh'-dek, Strong's H6664, righteous, integrity, equity, justice, straightness. The root of tseh'-dek is tsaw-dak,' Strong's H6663, upright, just, straight, innocent, true, sincere. It is best understood as the product of upright, moral action in accordance with some form of divine plan. The two words that stand out the most to me is integrity (honesty), and sincerity (in good faith). Your righteous acts could be anything from sharing a truth in God's Word, listening to someone when they need your advice, helping someone in a time of need, or just a smile to make someone's day. But, remember... The key here is to be honest and sincere. If it does not truly come from the heart or is just for attention or gain, it is not a righteous act. Also, when it comes to studying the Word and sharing it with others, make sure that it is a "truth" in the Word and not a false teaching or tradition of men. God knows our hearts, so we cannot fool Him when it comes to righteous acts.
Question: Where is it written that Christ is our Passover?
You will find it in the Book of Corinthians: Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. (1 Corinthians 5:7). Christ is the Passover lamb slain for our sins and protection against the Devil. For He has defeated death which is the devil.
Question: Thank you for the lovely website designed to educate people and deliver truth of God's message. My question is do I need to speak in unknown tongues to be saved?
Glad you enjoy the website and we hope you will continue your studies with us. All the glory goes to the Heavenly Father. As for your question there is no such thing as "unknown tongues" in the bible. Where it is in the bible, if you notice, it is written in Italics which means it was added by man. It is not in the original transcripts. The word "tongue" simply means language; it also refers to the "tongue" of Pentecost day that through the Holy Spirit, everyone understood what was spoken in their own language (dialect), on that day. (Tongue in the Strong's Greek dictionary #1100 simply means language).Question: Is there scripture that says you should not mock God?
Yes... Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7).
Question: Who were the Nethinim?
They were the temple assistants in ancient Jerusalem. They were originally foreign slaves, mostly prisoners of war, and were assigned to lower menial duties of the house of God, such as woodcutters and water carriers for the entire community. (Joshua 9:21), they were made up of people that were not Israelites. They were mostly people left from the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. (1 Kings 9:20). After the return from exile the Nethinim worked their way into other more important religious orders and along with the singers and porters, became gradually incorporated in the general body of Levites.
