Did God really create the entire universe in six days? Are we to understand the days of Genesis 1 as literal 24–hour periods? Question and Answer Before I give what I believe is a biblical response to your question, there is something I must say first. Godly followers of Christ throughout church history have understood the days of Genesis...

God is uncreated and, therefore pre-existent. Light, a common sym­bol for God, is created (Gen. 2:3). Why then is not dark­ness—which is not created—a more appropriate symbol than light? Question and Answer I would suggest that neither darkness nor light is intended to be a symbol of God’s uncre­ated, pre-existent nature. As contrasted with...

What does it mean to be a spiritual person as described in 1 Corinthians 2:15? Question and Answer Found on many postmodern lips today are the words: “I am not religious, but I am a spiritual person.” If a person attends church on a regular basis, some people consider that to qualify as being a spiritual person. Others assert that being...

A Roman Catholic friend says it is presumptuous to claim to be sure you're saved before you actually die and meet God. It is sinful pride, he believes. Is he right? Question and Answer He is seriously mistaken. At the very least, he forfeits enjoyment of salvation. If you cannot have assurance of salvation, how can you experience peace with...

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...

Is it true, as I have been told, that Enoch was a perfect and upright man and, therefore, is the supreme role model for us Christians? Question and Answer The words “perfect and upright” are used to describe Job, not Enoch (see Job 1:1; 2:3 KJV). However, Enoch was as much entitled to that description as was Job. The Bible says that Enoch...

When I came to Christ, I had no idea that God expected me to be holy. After a Sunday school class that talked about God's holiness the teacher said, “We are to be holy for God is holy.” I was shaken; I just feel like this is an impossibility. I never would have become a Christian if I knew the bottom line meant I had to live a holy life.

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...
