I hear you speak of the sovereignty of God. My question is this: does that mean that whatever happens God willed it into being? What does sovereignty of God mean? Is that biblical? Question and Answer While the phrase “sovereignty of God” is not found in the Bible, you can't read the Bible without seeing God's absolute authority in it. It...

When a Christian is serious about marriage and his or her spouse commits adultery, isn't that biblical grounds for divorce? If it is biblical, is it also mandated?

When I was growing up, I was taught that Sunday was a “day of rest,” a time when one did very little. I couldn’t play outside, do homework, or anything much but stay in the house and read, preferably a Christian book. So, I came to dread the day. Today things seem to have gone to the opposite extreme. Christians play sports, shop, go to movies,...

Why do I find it so difficult to pray? I want to begin my day with God, but when I wake up, I feel like there’s too much to do to make prayer practical. Question and Answer You, of course, are not alone. First, you have a body that doesn’t want to get out of bed, an agenda that prompts you to put it off until you can find more time at the...

Some people say that when Jesus died He died for all— which means that everyone is going to be saved whether they receive Him or want Him or not. If this is true, why have missions or missionaries?

As I listen to speeches given by the various candidates for president, I am terribly confused. They make so many conflicting promises, it’s hard to know exactly what to believe.

Do Jewish people and Christians worship the same God? Question and Answer It appears that according to the New Testament, the object of Jewish worship is the same as Christian worship. Four passages support this idea. First, in Acts 22:3, Paul tells a Jewish crowd, “I studied under Gamaliel and was thoroughly trained in the law of our ancestors.

I’ve always been taught that Deborah was chosen to lead as a judge in Israel because no men were willing to do the job. But I see no evidence of that in Scripture. From what I read, she was a judge because she had the people’s respect, and they came to her to be judged. Is this accurate? Question and Answer The story of Deborah is often...
