Question and Answer

May 1, 2012

Is there an easy way to explain that Jesus is God? I witness to a person who can’t seem to accept that fact. He says, "If Jesus is God, then how did He die? God can’t die! So Jesus is not God." I have shared some Scripture with him, but I need help explaining it. Question and Answer This is a question that most Christians struggle with at...

My dog George died recently and I am upset. I know the verse that says sin came into the world and death by sin. It refers to us humans, right? Why should sinless dogs also die? Question and Answer Trees die too, and so do mosquitoes. Sooner or later, every living thing dies. They are parts of a universe that was doomed to "frustration"...

If when I came to know Christ as personal Savior, I was forgiven of all my sins (past, present, and future), why is it necessary for me to constantly confess my sin before God? Question and Answer Frankly, I don’t know many people who are “constantly confessing their sins,” but I know what you mean. The truth is we still fall short of the...

I’ve always found it rather odd that when it came to replacing Judas Iscariot, the other apostles actually cast lots for that empty chair in their membership. Why didn’t the disciples simply pray to seek God’s choice in such an important matter? Question and Answer After Judas betrayed Christ for a lousy thirty pieces of silver, the disciples...

I know that the Word teaches that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and I'm positive that the Lord Jesus Christ said it, but I can't seem to find it in the Gospels. The concept is obviously in the Word, but I'm not finding the text. I know there are passages we sometimes quote that seem like they are right from the Bible, like “This...

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? Could He not just...

I’ve known believers who for years seemed to have a genuine faith in Jesus, yet recently they have denied it. Also, some biblical passages seem to teach loss of salvation. How do you explain these issues in light of eternal security? Question and Answer Eternal security is the doctrine that teaches that Jesus gives the assurance of salvation...

Is it wrong to smoke? Question and Answer Ask a medical person and you'll get an unequivocal answer: Do not smoke! The use of tobacco is primarily a health issue. It is a religious or spiritual issue only in the sense it is deliberate abuse of your body, and also harms others through secondary smoke. The primary source for that opinion is...

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...

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...
