Question and Answer

August 1, 2005

I am a teenager. Do I have to attend my parents’ church? It is awfully dull. The music is like songs done at funerals, and the preacher is older than my grandfather. I want to go to a real church. Question and Answer I usually advise teenagers to go to church with their parents, in that way exhibiting suitable submission to them. That is...

How can we stop rock and roll music in church? I hate it. Question and Answer Years ago, one of my sons told me I was clueless—that I thought that virtually anything noisy and banal and that got young girls screaming was rock and roll. Not so, he said: rock and roll is a genre in its own right, and it is not “played” in churches. Maybe you...

I’ve heard it said that Jesus endured humiliation and physical pain joyfully. How does this fit with His agony in the garden when He asked, “may this cup be taken from me” (Matt. 26:39)? Question and Answer The words of the great hymn “O Sacred Head Now Wounded,” said to be written by Bernard of Clairvaux, describe the tension you write...

How do you minister to a family member who isn’t a believer without causing division? Or is division inevitable? If so, is it worth talking about Christ at the risk of your relationship being marred or even destroyed? Question and Answer Families are often the hardest context in which to live out our faith. It is wise for believers to live...

What is meant by the Bible telling us to lay aside every weight? Question and Answer The passage referred to is Hebrews 12:1. This text has to do with living a disciplined, focused spiritual life. It’s talking about pushing away the things that would tempt you, and with divine help allowing the Lord to help you overcome the things of the...

I’ve been wrestling with how much God should be involved in my pursuit of holiness and how much is up to me? I feel frustrated with the seeming contradiction people display when they at once say it’s only by the grace of God that they were freed from sin yet so often emphasize striving to be good. Question and Answer It is both. It is only...

Question and Answer

February 1, 2011

When I came to Christ, I had no idea that God expected me to be holy. After a Sunday school class that talked about God's holiness the teacher said, “We are to be holy for God is holy.” I was shaken; I just feel like this is an impossibility. I never would have become a Christian if I knew the bottom line meant I had to live a holy life.

My friend says that if you're living a life of victory in Christ, you will no longer be tempted, but that certainly has not been the case in my life. What's that all about? Question and Answer It is a wonderful thing to live a life that says no to sin, but any honest believer will tell you that temptation is a real "spiritual disease" that...

I have been speaking with some local youth pastors about DJ dances in our city. Very often, at the local schools the dances have some less-than-virtuous music played. The dress attire for the students leaves something to be desired. My idea is to have Christian sponsored dances at the churches. The dances would be chaperoned by parents who...

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...
