I am often afraid. My mother was afraid before me. I think it’s my family legacy. When I talk to people about my fear, they tell me to think about something else, to trust the Lord, or to memorize certain Scripture verses. Nothing seems to help for more than a short while. How do I overcome my fear? Question and Answer I’m sure many people...

What does it mean in Exodus 7 and successive chapters when it says that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart when Moses—speaking for God—asked him to “let my people go.” That doesn’t sound terribly fair, does it?

My first question is in regard to how to respond to unbelievers who know just a few passages in the Bible, do not like them, and have a negative view of God. A case in point is Romans 1:28. A family member does not like this passage, thinking that God gives up on people. How do I explain Romans 1:28 to someone? Question and Answer The meaning...

I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I started out praying a lot, but it just seemed like my prayers weren’t being answered. I began to think that maybe only special people get their prayers answered—and maybe I wasn’t spiritual enough. I just stopped praying for things and direction, so I wouldn’t feel bad at not getting what I asked...

Two of my loved ones died recently. I am drawn to 1 Corinthians 15:29: “Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them?” A friend suggests that I, a baptized believer, play a part in God’s plan for those who have gone before me. What do...

I have been a Christian for the last several years, having previously lived as a believer “in name only.” After being born again I found myself committed to living for Christ and wanting to do whatever He asked. Jesus has changed the way I live my life. Lately people refer to me as one of “those evangelical Christians,” like it is some kind...

A friend committed suicide. One of my business partners says people who commit suicide go straight to hell. Is that what the Bible teaches? I need to know. Question and Answer Your partner’s conviction is an assumption, not a certainty based on the Bible. Hell was prepared for the Devil and his angels but, of course, it can and does accommodate...
