Question and Answer

Why doesn’t our church grow? As far as we can tell, all the members are decent, God-fearing people, and we are willing to try new methods. Question and Answer Righteous living by a church’s members does not ensure numerical growth. Our Lord addressed His disciples as a “little flock” (Luke 12:32). Of course, that was before Pentecost when...

Where is it found that we should celebrate Jesus’ birthday? It seems to me that Christians ought to celebrate His death more than His birth. Question and Answer We mark the Lord’s birth every year for at least three reasons: first, Scripture gives a lot of space to it. Jesus’ birth is the subject of Old Testament prophecies, and two of the...

My son joined a cult. Previously (until he went to college), he was a good Christian boy. Is he lost forever? My heart is broken. Question and Answer Lost, yes. Forever lost? Not unless he chooses to be lost forever. Have you never read the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11–32)? That young fool left home but eventually came to his senses...

1 Corinthians 14:34-35 troubles me. I cannot see how women can be silent and still be part of the church. Please resolve a debate in our church. Question and Answer In the year 2005, this is still one of the most controversial passages in the New Testament. Believe me, nothing I can say about it will settle the dispute in your church. But...

A good friend says anger is okay. It is even okay to be mad at God. Is he right? Question and Answer Less than half right. Most of the Bible’s references to anger are negative, and sometimes silly. Jonah was angry because God didn’t destroy Nineveh. The Prodigal Son’s brother was angry because their father celebrated the return of the Prodigal.

Romans 5:7 says that “very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.” What is the difference between a righteous man and a good man? Question and Answer Paul seems to use the term “a righteous man” with reference to keeping the Law. He himself before his encounter with Christ was...

How did Saul die? The account in 1 Samuel 31 says that he “took his own sword and fell on it.” But the next chapter (2 Sam. 1:1-16) recounts the tale of an Amalekite who reported to King David that he himself had killed Saul. What really happened? Was one of the writers of the Bible confused? Question and Answer No, the writer was not confused.

I worry about intruders with foul abuse on their mind coming to my house. Does the sixth commandment (“Thou shalt not kill”) keep me from defending my wife? Question and Answer Implicit in the question are debates about the role of the Old Testament Law in the life of a Christian, interpretations of the Sermon on the Mount, pacifism, and...

Was the ability to speak given to man by God or did it evolve? Question and Answer This issue must be put in the context of the wonder of language. God Himself is a God who speaks. He brought the world into existence by His word (Gen. 1:1–31; Ps. 33:6). In the Old Testament understanding of language, the spoken word itself was an entity,...

Should a follower of Christ be concerned about the cultivation of the imagination? Question and Answer This is a very good question, and I am thrilled that you are raising it. In our North American pulpits, very little preaching appeals to the imagination of the listener. The evangelical imagination is malnourished, frail, and emaciated.
