April 1, 2010

From_the_Editors “I was in prison and you came to visit me” These words of Jesus from Matthew 25:36 present a challenge for every Christian, don’t they?

Reading through the New Testament, I came to the story of the demon-possessed man of the Gerasenes told in the Gospels of Mark and Luke. I thought it was a really powerful story, but I wondered about a couple of things. Why did the demons ask to be sent into the pigs, and why did Jesus allow the demons to go into the pigs?

Every time I read the story of the Fall in Genesis 3, I wonder why God didn’t explain more clearly to Adam and Eve why He was asking them not to eat of the one tree. It seems as though God was setting them up or asking something unreasonable of them. If they were perfectly created, why wouldn’t they have done the right thing? Question and...

When I first came to Christ as a young man, I saw the men in our church pray together on their knees whenever they gathered for corporate prayer. But today I rarely see people praying on their knees. What does the Bible say about it? And I’d also like to ask: Why do we close our eyes when we pray? Is this something that the Bible says we have...
