Question and Answer

I don't like any of the candidates for the upcoming election. My conscience tells me that they are phonies. Should I sit out the election? Question and Answer Don't give up your vote; give it to the person who, in your opinion, is the best of two or more choices. Meanwhile, rethink the role of conscience as contrasted with mind. Because...

1 Corinthians 15:28 says, "The Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all." Does this mean that Jesus will be inferior to God in the eternal state? Question and Answer No it does not. Superiority and inferiority are not the issue. The operative words in the verse are "made subject...

What is fellowship? I am a new Christian and I hear this word a lot. Question and Answer The term is frequently used loosely to indicate pious socializing. It is derived from a Greek word (koinonia) that is translated "fellowship" 15 times in the KJV and 12 times in the NIV translation of the Bible. In other places, the same word is rendered...

Isn't God unfair to save millions of westerners and only a tiny percentage of Asians and people living in the Middle East? Question and Answer The first truth to fix in our minds is that God is not unfair. To say that He is unfair is to confuse perception with fact. The general perception is that not many non-westerners have been saved.

Why did Mary Magdalene not recognize Jesus when He appeared to her at the tomb (John 20:10-18)? Question and Answer A couple of explanations are possible: first, it was not yet light enough to recognize Him. Second, He was changed. The pair on the road to Emmaus also failed to recognize Him (Luke 24:18). As for Mary, additional factors may...

I don't have any friends. What can I do to make friends? Question and Answer Evidently you are very lonely; you have had no luck in finding friends, not even in the church you attend. That, I think, is an indictment of your church. A New Testament metaphor for the church is family. One of my African friends always signs his letters with...

When Jesus was in Mary's tummy, did He know everything? (From a five–year–old boy) Question and Answer No, when Jesus was in Mary's tummy He did not know everything. The Bible tells us that after His birth, "the Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon him" (Luke 2:40). He was still...

Is it okay to confront a pastor who I think is wrong? If yes, how do I do it? Question and Answer You ask two questions: can I confront the pastor, and how to proceed? Taking these questions in reverse order—which assumes a yes answer to the first question—I would tell you first of all to go slowly. Be sure you have a legitimate complaint...

I have heard sermons about two kinds of Christians, the “spiritual man” and the carnal or “worldly man” (1 Cor. 3:1–4). The “worldly” man is quarrelsome and jealous and is called a spiritual infant in Christ. Here’s my question: is there another category? Is everyone either spiritually mature or carnal, with no possibility of plain immaturity?

When is the age of accountability? Question and Answer Presumably, the question asks for the age at which children cross the line from innocence to accountability to God for their sins. The Bible does not answer questions about the age of accountability. It speaks only about the accountability of adults. See Matthew 12:36; 25:14-30; 2 Corinthians...
