Did God use evil spirits as judgment on King Saul? Question and Answer People in Saul’s time had no category for mental illness, and they couldn’t differentiate that from demon possession.

Jesus teaches us to speak to God as Father, right? What about adults who address the Lord as "Daddy"? Are they out of line? Question and Answer Eccentric, I'd say, but possibly not out of line. They may have heard somewhere that the Aramaic word Abba found in three passages (Mark 14:36; Rom. 8:15; Gal. 4:6) was the term Jewish children used...

What does it mean that Jesus was the “only begotten” Son of God? That makes it sound like there was a time when He did not exist. Question and Answer If God is the Eternal Father—and the Bible says He is—it means that by definition the Son of the eternal Father must also be eternal. Nowhere does the Bible articulate that there was a God...

Since atheists do not believe in God or Satan, what do they think is the cause of all the evil happening in the world today?

Evil is a moral category that implies an absolute standard.

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.

My eight–year–old grandson asked me why God punished the whole world because of what Adam and Eve did. How shall I answer him? Question and Answer First, admit that it is a hard question. Then tell him that God does not punish anybody because of somebody else's sin. You can read a few verses in Ezekiel 18 to make that point. For example,...

If the Devil no longer has power and authority over us, why does the Bible command us to put on the full armor of God? Question and Answer The Lord's decisive defeat of the Devil through the cross does not mean we are no longer involved in spiritual battles and fierce struggles. The Lord Jesus has already won the war, but we are still engaged...

But I've often wondered, if Jesus then had brothers and sisters (half brothers and sisters), what was the relationship between Joseph and Mary after the birth of Christ. Did Jesus have brothers and sisters? Question and...
