Question and Answer

September 1, 2013

What should we do about the presence of unbelievers in church meetings when Christians celebrate the Lord’s Supper? Question and Answer First, we should thank God that unbelievers are present. Second, we need to be sensitive and careful to reflect Christ’s heart for the lost. Third, before the distribution of the elements, I suggest that...

Question 1

September 1, 2018

Jacob, David, Solomon, and Abraham—to name a few in the Bible—were men who had more than one wife. Why were these men honored and blessed by God? They broke God’s commandment! Did God wink at their sin back then, but now He condemns it? Question 1 When we study the Old Testament, we find neither an explicit condemnation of polygamy nor explicit...

I am confused about gender issues. A former boyfriend wants to change his gender; he wants to become a woman. I think that’s crazy (and sinful). But my mother thinks I am sinful. Every time I wear slacks, which is nearly every day, she reminds me that the Bible tells women not to wear men’s clothing. What about these things? Question and...

Our pastor upsets some of us by teaching that it is a sin for women to wear pants. He bases his conviction on Deuteronomy 22:5: “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.” Does that verse settle the issue? Question and Answer Not for me, if style or fashion...

My fiancÉe and I are planning to get married soon but we argue about birth control, and the more we talk about it the more distant the prospect of a meeting of minds seems. What do you advise? Question and Answer I am not a marriage counselor, but I cannot refrain from telling you not to get married unless you have come to a genuine meeting...

Ever since she attended revival meetings held in a fundamentalist church, my young sister has become very religious and very intense. She says she got saved. The words “I'm saved” annoy me. They sound corny. Also, they imply that we “unsaved” people are doomed. Is “I'm saved” a legitimate way to describe one's religious condition? Question...

I’ve always been taught that Deborah was chosen to lead as a judge in Israel because no men were willing to do the job. But I see no evidence of that in Scripture. From what I read, she was a judge because she had the people’s respect, and they came to her to be judged. Is this accurate? Question and Answer The story of Deborah is often...

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...

Please pray for my family and me. We have been attending a local church for a little over a year now and have grown to enjoy our service there. Last week the age-old question came up about one’s salvation, and it has caused a dilemma that could possibly cause us to leave this church. Last year we became members of this church and our two daughters...

Does being a Christian mean I have to give to every begging person I meet? Question and Answer I don’t think that there is a blanket “yes” or “no” answer that covers every situation. God does not encourage laziness, as the book of Proverbs reminds us. But some people have found themselves in dire situations, and they are struggling and need...
