Is it a sin to fantasize about a celebrity? There weren’t television or computers in Christ’s day. Wasn’t He speaking only about people who knew one another? Question and Answer While there were no television or computers in Christ’s day, the temptation to fantasize has existed since the Garden of Eden. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve...

I often feel as though, under the pressure of addictive sin, I have no choice but to fall. How much choice do we really have when something seems impossible to resist? Question and Answer This is a very good question, and sadly it suggests a deception too often propagated about one of the great gifts God gave us, the gift of choice. Because...

What do I do when it seems that God is moving too slowly in my life? Question and Answer You are wise to use the word “seems.” Humanly speaking, sometimes it does seem that God is taking too long to accomplish His purpose and carry out His promises in our lives. In a world of sound bites and nanoseconds, we followers of Christ have a vital...

The Bible says a snake talked with Eve. Did other animals in the Garden of Eden also know how to talk? Question and Answer Maybe. The snake was “more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made” (Gen. 3:1). This does not preclude the possibility that other animals talked. It implies that for Satan’s purposes the serpent was...

Why do Protestants call John a Baptist? Baptists are a late development in Christian history. There were no Baptists in the first century. Hearing him called a Baptist bugs me. Question and Answer Don’t be bugged. By nearly every denomination, John is called “the Baptist,” meaning only that he was a baptizer, not a Baptist in the denominational...

It used to be that when a person died, friends went to the funeral parlor for the viewing. These days, many people say they went to a “wake.” Is that word biblical? Question and Answer Neither term is found in the Bible. The words refer to essentially the same thing, yet they are different, too. Wake is a specific term for an all-night vigil...

(From a nine-year-old boy) Did Adam have a belly button? My friend says he did not; belly buttons evolved. Question and Answer Your friend is half-right; Adam did not have a belly button, also known as a navel, as in California navel oranges. Neither did Eve. Only people who are born have navels. Adam and Eve were not born; God created them.

I hear preachers characterizing Moses as a “whiner.” Why is that? I know Moses was sometimes lacking in faith, but he didn’t give up. Am I whining when I bring my problems to God? Question and Answer I don’t think so. God is the one who we should come to when we find ourselves between the proverbial rock and hard place. We either worry or...

I have not found any indication in the Word that we will see our pets in the afterlife. If we are going to be reunited with our loved ones, doesn’t this include the animals that we loved? Question and Answer I heard someone say once that this would be impossible—there wouldn’t be enough room in heaven for all the beloved animals from this...

Is it wrong or is it okay to donate your organs at death? Question and Answer How can it be wrong? A dying person has no more use for them, and by donating them may give the recipient many years of useful life. The apostle John says that Jesus “laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers” (1 John 3:16).
