My life is very hard. None of my prayers get answered. Does God have it in for me? Question and Answer I don't know how hard your life is, but you must have good reasons for describing your life as being very hard.

Does Hebrews 6:4-6 teach that backsliders lose their salvation? Question and Answer No, that interpretation has two serious flaws. First, it flies in the face of stories such as the Prodigal Son and texts such as 1 John 1: 9 ("If we confess our sins, [God] is faithful and just and will forgive us"). Second, it goes too far. It says that...

Why was Elisha angry with Jehoash for striking the ground three times instead of five or six times (2 Kings 13:14–24)? Question and Answer Elisha was using the bow and arrow as a teaching tool.

Does my dead husband who is in heaven think about me and know what I am doing? Question and Answer I believe that he remembers you, and only good things.
