One of the worst sites to look for help on Biblical information and interpretation.
The main problem with their articles is how they treat the Bible as if it's mere existence proves all other forms of evidence incorrect, regardless of proof. Moreover, many of the times that they talk about other beliefs and ideas, they will outright demonize or dehumanize any beliefs that either (a) are non-Chrisitan or are not directly Christian or (b) disagree with their own theological claims. While there are some articles that are valid and may even encourage tolerance to other views (such as their article on Old Earth Creationism) many of their beliefs are extremely fundamentalist in nature, they completely disregard any form of information found in the real world (be it scientific, psychological or otherwise), they twist Scripture to match their own form of Christianity and they encourage the concept of blindly following their own beliefs instead of looking into all beliefs and discerning what is the Truth.
Along with this, some of their messages are in direct contradiction to each other. One example is when they discuss the Quiverfull and Christian Patriarchy movements, they claim that both these movements and home schooling are sinful and should be avoided. However, not only do they call both of these movements sinful, but go on to claim that homeschooling itself is sinful. Yet, in another article, they claim that homeschooling should be determined by individual families, implying that the "sin" of homeschooling is relative: a concept that is not only contradictory, but heretical to the teachings of the Bible.
Finally, they also treat themselves as the ultimate authorities on the Bible and tend to have an arrogance to their messages that seems to imply that they expect all believers to simply agree with them on their cases. One such example is how they state that the Bible encourages the complementarian view on relationships and marriage (men and women are equal, but God has made it so that men always rule and women always submit) by making the claim that God has simply ordained women to submit to men in the home and to understand that they cannot be spiritual teachers. However, they also do not compare other parts of the Bible, such as when the Bible tells husbands and wives to "submit to each other" (Ephesians 5:21). Along with this, their claims in these article seem to imply the Bible is against dignifying women as humans and states that God has ordained women to certain positions because they are women. Another article also claims that one of the principle reasons for the existance of marriage is for the ability to procreate, but give no Scriptual evidence for this claim.
Granted, even with my criticisms, I will say that Gotquestions.org does indeed have a few good articles. Despite their arrogance, there are times when they do indeed attempt to explain things in a more calmer and rational tone (such as whether women should be in a position of spiritual authority or not) and some of their articles do indeed deconstruct claims made by Christians that aren't stated in the Bible (such as whether angels have free will). As a whole, though, Gotquestions.org is still one of the worst, most fundamentalist and arrogant "theological" websites created and should not be trusted, at least when it comes to the "Big Questions" they claim to answer. If you do sample this site, I encourage you to only go for smaller, less controversial questions (such as "whether people should play tabletop RPGs" or the afformented "do angels have free will"), rather than questions that have been the cause of much theological debate for centuries (homosexuality, complementarianism vs egalitarianism, Creationism, etc.).

Some Answered Questions was first published in 1908. It contains questions asked to `Abdu'l-Bahá, son of the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, by Laura Clifford Barney, during several of her visits to Haifa between 1904 and 1906, and `Abdu'l-Bahá's answers to these questions. read more
