Why do I find it so difficult to pray? I want to begin my day with God, but when I wake up, I feel like there’s too much to do to make prayer practical. Question and Answer You, of course, are not alone. First, you have a body that doesn’t want to get out of bed, an agenda that prompts you to put it off until you can find more time at the...

Some of my relatives are “gospel hardened.” They have heard the gospel all their lives but sneer at it. Do I have to go on praying for them? I don’t feel like it. Question and Answer Some Christians think that praying endlessly for people who show no sign of repentance and belief is like casting pearls before swine. But that expression may...

I remember when I was a kid and I was acting like kids sometimes do that my mother would say, “Why don’t you grow up?” But in Luke 18 Jesus told His disciples that they needed to be like little children. What did He mean? Question and Answer The disciples, after hearing Jesus speaking of His impending death on the cross, began shortly thereafter...

The Old Testament affirms God’s faithfulness to His people. In places like Isaiah 49:16, we read, “I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” Isn’t this in conflict with Christians who hold to a replacement theology?

Question and Answer

I know that the Word teaches that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and I'm positive that the Lord Jesus Christ said it, but I can't seem to find it in the Gospels. The concept is obviously in the Word, but I'm not finding the text. I know there are passages we sometimes quote that seem like they are right from the Bible, like “This...

So much seems wrong in our culture today. I feel like it’s a struggle to get things done well, to get polite treatment in public institutions, and to hold people to the promises they have made. But, I hesitate at times to speak up because it seems like we’re told as Christians to be nice. I need to know how to think about this. Question and...

What is the relationship between God’s love for us and our life circumstances? Often it seems as though there is no reward for faithfulness. Sometimes I feel like the more faithful I am, the harder life gets. Question and Answer I have spent a great deal of time talking with friends about this profound dilemma that disturbs many pe ople,...

Why do young people refuse to believe that the rules laid down by their parents really are good rules? I don’t mean simply rules about cleaning their rooms or washing their hands before eating, but the rules like not drinking or taking drugs and abstaining from premarital sex. Question and Answer Like countless generations before them, young...

I married an unbeliever who is a very good man. He has always enjoyed gambling like a hobby. After we got married we would go together to the casinos. It's not for the money—it's just something we enjoy doing together. But I'm wondering if it is sinful. Question and Answer I have a standing rule that if I think something is sinful, then...
