Question and Answer

April 1, 2004

If Jews living in ancient times were saved by faith, what was it that they had faith in? What did they believe? Question and Answer They believed in God and they believed whatever God told them, no matter how far-fetched it appeared to their neighbors. Noah built an ark before anyone on earth had ever seen a drop of rain (Heb. 11:7). When...

We are told—based on Revelation 12:4—that one third of the angels joined Satan in his rebellion against God. Assuming that the remaining two-thirds have free will, what is to prevent them from sinning similarly? Question and Answer Evidently the assumption is correct: angels enjoy (or did enjoy) a certain freedom of choice. If not, how could...

My Christian husband died recently. Does he see us or know what is happening to the family? Question and Answer Scripture does not answer this question clearly. However, we have a little material on which to base the belief that he may know something. (Note that I say may know, not does know.) First, Moses and Elijah went from heaven to...

I love to watch movies, but my wife hates movies. She insists that movies are evil and that it is wicked to watch them; she quotes verses from the Bible. I say she misapplies the verses. We fight a lot about the matter. What do you think? Is it wrong to watch movies or go to the theater? Question and Answer Whether it is right or wrong to...

Why are there so many Christian denominations? Unsaved friends complain that the multiplicity of church denominations turns them off. Are some denominations better than others? Question and Answer You ask two questions. In some, perhaps most, cases, the answer to the first question lies in sinful human nature, expressing itself in contrary...

Why did the Jews raise pigs? Question and Answer Presumably, you are referring to the Gadarene swine that drowned after being possessed by demons. (These and the hogs tended by the Prodigal Son are the only pigs given space in the New Testament.) One day Jesus cast many demons out of a demon-possessed man and at the urging of the homeless...

Is it okay to say that I have a relationship with Jesus? Recently, I have heard the expression criticized on the grounds that it detracts from the majesty of Jesus. Question and Answer If it detracts from His majesty, Jesus seems not to mind. He told the Twelve that they were His friends if they kept His commandments (John 15:14). Friend...

When Jesus returns and stands on the Mount of Olives, the mountain will be split from east to west. Is this detail (east to west) significant? Question and Answer I don't think it is significant. The text (Zechariah 14) deals with the Lord's intervention in one of history's last battles. The Mount of Olives will be split in two, creating...

I've been a Christian for many years, and I'm one of those people who seems to fight a losing battle with weight. Recently I overheard a conversation (that maybe I was meant to overhear) where the subject of gluttony came up. The comments were not kind, to say the least. Does being fat mean that I am obviously a glutton? Is Being Overweight...

A friend of mine has been dying from cancer for several months. I've prayed for my friend, but I'm wondering if in praying I'm bucking, as it were, God's sovereignty. Doesn't God have a plan for our lives, and sometimes that plan includes pain, suffering, and death? Question and Answer Certainly, God is in charge of each one of our lives,...
