Question and Answer

October 1, 2008

When I first came to Christ as a young man, I saw the men in our church pray together on their knees whenever they gathered for corporate prayer. But today I rarely see people praying on their knees. What does the Bible say about it? And I’d also like to ask: Why do we close our eyes when we pray? Is this something that the Bible says we have...

Question and Answer

February 1, 2007

I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I started out praying a lot, but it just seemed like my prayers weren’t being answered. I began to think that maybe only special people get their prayers answered—and maybe I wasn’t spiritual enough. I just stopped praying for things and direction, so I wouldn’t feel bad at not getting what I asked...

Question and Answer

October 1, 2016

I am a Christian teenager wondering what to do when one of my parents, who claims to be a Christian, is living a sinful lifestyle. My parent is loving and provides for me but has made many life choices that are biblically wrong while continuing to use Christian language and talk about Jesus in warm, personal ways. Is it my place to speak up?

Question and Answer

March 1, 2015

I’ve always believed that we are saved by grace not works, but Jesus’ instruction to the rich young ruler is confusing. The ruler asks, “What do I have to do to inherit eternal life.” Jesus says, “Then love your neighbor as yourself.” What does Jesus mean? Question and Answer The Lord Jesus was not saying that keeping the commandments and...

Deuteronomy 6:5 says, “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” But in the Gospels Jesus adds, “with all your mind” (Matt. 22:37; Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27).

Question and Answer

June 1, 2013

Recently a friend and I were talking about our physical images of Christ. She felt pretty strongly that we should not try to see Christ in a visual way because anything we would think would be inaccurate. I, on the other hand, have felt comforted by different images of Christ throughout my life—especially, when I was a child, the famous picture...

We Are Weak, but He Is Strong

February 23, 2018

We Are Weak, but He Is Strong Since 1862, children around the world have been singing the words of Anna Bartlett Warner’s hymn, “Jesus Loves Me.” Its first stanza contains a line that is true for children and adults alike: “Little ones to Him belong—they are weak but He is strong.” At this point in our study of evangelism, you may be feeling...
