Question and Answer

November 1, 2018

Why is the God of the Old Testament so harsh and vindictive, and the God of the New Testament is both loving and merciful? It doesn’t seem like the same God to me. Question and Answer Many people have thought this, but in fact the God of the Bible is the same throughout all the Scriptures. In both the Old and the New Testaments, God is loving...

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...

Question and Answer

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...

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...

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?

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). What is going on here? Question and Answer Very good observation! It is true that in Deuteronomy 6:5 we are told to love the LORD...

I love to watch movies, but my wife hates movies. She insists that movies are evil and that it is wicked to watch them; she quotes verses from the Bible. I say she misapplies the verses. We fight a lot about the matter. What do you think? Is it wrong to watch movies or go to the theater? Question and Answer Whether it is right or wrong to...

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...

I have a close family member (not a spouse) who has treated me badly most of my life, making me feel inadequate, unloved, and insecure. It took me years to work through the damage and come to forgiveness and letting go of the hurt. The person who hurt me has never admitted wrong even when confronted. In fact, she has suggested it was my problem.
