Does God exist? Yes, God exists
How can we know that God exists? Through reason and revelation we can know that God exists.

*IMPORTANT*... What is the Old Testament about? The Old Testament tells the history of God's saving actions in the lives of the chosen people, The Israelites, through whom God brought about his plan of salvation.
*IMPORTANT*.... What is the New Testament about? The new testament is about the birth, life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, The Son of God, as well as the life of the early Church which he founded.
Can people make mistakes when they try to understand the bible? Difficulties in translating and interpreting the language, customs, and history of the times can lead to misunderstanding biblical texts. One of the reasons Jesus gave us the Church is to guide us in reading the Bible.
Can the Church make a mistake in interpreting the Bible? The Church can never make a mistake in authentically interpreting the Bible because the Holy Spirit preserves the Church from error.

What is mystery? In Religion a mystery is a great truth revealed by God which our limited intelligence will never be able to wholly understand.
