Question and Answer

June 1, 2005

My question is based on Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Is it true that people living in the past, or at the present in remote parts of the world, can be saved...

Lately, our Bible reading club has been reading the Old Testament with growing dismay. Its butchery appalls us, principally because it is attributed to God. God sends armies against helpless people with orders to slaughter them. God orders the indiscriminate killing of women and children. What gives? Is the God of the Old Testament different...

What does it mean to say that God is holy? Question and Answer No one can answer this perfectly. I will do my best, knowing that my answer will fall infinitely short of the divine reality of God’s holiness. To say that God is holy means that God in His essential being is completely separated from evil, and incapable of being defiled by sin.

Is there a difference between the will of God and the guidance of God? Question 1 Yes, there is a difference between the Lord’s will and the Lord’s guidance. God’s will for our lives is plainly revealed in Scripture. For example, it is God’s will for us to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in everything (1 Thess. 5:16–18).

Why is God not mentioned in the book of Esther? How can a biblical book not clearly speak of God? Question and Answer We can’t imagine a scholar writing a history of the birth of the United States and omitting George Washington. How much more puzzling that the book of Esther never mentions the name of God, who is central to the entire story!

Who are the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6? Question and Answer Many people wonder about the statement that “the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose” (Gen. 6:2).

Question 4

After the Fall of humanity in Genesis 3, do people still bear the image of God? Question 4 Yes! Certainly sin has marred the image and defaced it, but the Fall did not erase the image of God in humanity.

Is the Bible the only rule of faith and practice for the child of God? Question and Answer As 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” Further, all Scripture should point our attention toward our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He Himself illustrated...
