Question and Answer

July 1, 2009

Is it correct to call the Blessed Virgin Mary the Mother of God? Question and Answer No, it is not correct; it is an example of a well-intentioned but nonetheless defective syllogism. Here is how it works: (1) Jesus is divine (i.e. God); (2) Mary is His mother; (3) therefore, following two supposedly correct premises, the conclusion is that...

Did Jesus ever actually claim to be the Son of God? Question and Answer Jesus did claim to be God the Son by calling God, “My Father” (John 5:17–18). His Jewish audience understood His claim to deity and labeled it blasphemous. Similarly, Jesus later says, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30–33). His Jewish opponents wanted to stone Him...

What language did God use to converse with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden? Question and Answer We don’t know what language God used to converse with Adam and Eve in Eden. It was probably the language everybody spoke until the confusion of the languages at the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1–9). God still communicates with us through the Bible,...

Is trouble that comes into our lives a sign of punishment from God? Question and Answer I believe that the Bible does not teach that all trouble is a sign of punishment. As a matter of fact, Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). When trouble does come our way, it’s good...

Question 5

July 1, 2018

Would you provide an example of misusing or taking God’s name in vain? Question 5 The use of God’s name in profanity is a sad case in point. Sometimes people call down God’s damnation on other people. This is a serious offense to God for a number of reasons. When these profane words are uttered, they are trivializing or ignoring God’s holiness...

Question 2

Since God is spirit (John 4:24), and in His essential being does not have a physical body, in what sense do people bear the image of God? Question 2 God created humanity in His image, according to His likeness, bestowing on humanity immense dignity, worth, and value (Gen. 1:26–27; Psalm 8). The specifics of what constitutes the image are...

Was Jesus surprised by the crucifixion, and did He believe that God had abandoned Him? The question is based on His cry of despair, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matt. 27:46). Question and Answer Certainly, before the crucifixion Jesus knew all that would transpire. But perhaps the actual experience was more intense than He...
