Is the “faith promise” plan of raising support for its mission’s program scriptural? A few of the members of our church say that it is unscriptural.

If Christ already dwells in believers by His Spirit, why does Paul pray for strength for us so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith (Eph. 3:16–17)?

I hear preachers characterizing Moses as a “whiner.” Why is that? I know Moses was sometimes lacking in faith, but he didn’t give up. Am I whining when I bring my problems to God? Question and Answer I don’t think so. God is the one who we should come to when we find ourselves between the proverbial rock and hard place. We either worry or...

Is it true that if you have the Holy Ghost in you, you will speak in tongues? I put my faith and trust in Jesus but I don’t speak in tongues. Do I not have the Holy Ghost?

What is the meaning of “handed over to Satan” in 1 Timothy 1:20? Does this indicate hopelessness instead of faith that God would change these people? Or are they really “evil” people?

If a Christian is living a life of faith and obeying the Word of God, is it really possible for him or her to ever be continually depressed? I have friends who have gone through serious crises that have knocked them for a loop. And it just doesn’t seem right that Christians with mental illness or depression should ever have to take medication...

I recently was baptized in another church after growing up in a Catholic church. I seem to have brought on much hostility from my friends and family for deserting my faith. Sadly I feel their unkind words are prompted by Satan. What do you think? Question and Answer Being baptized, I believe, is an act of obedience for all believers. It...

The Old Testament affirms God’s faithfulness to His people. In places like Isaiah 49:16, we read, “I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” Isn’t this in conflict with Christians who hold to a replacement theology? I do not subscribe to it, but I’d like to learn more. Question and Answer The relationship between Israel and the church...
