Was each day of the Creation week 24 hours long, or did billions of years of time elapse between the first two verses of Genesis? Question and Answer This continues to be a topic about which Bible-believing people disagree. No matter which side of the issue we are on, we must acknowledge that God did the creating. Whether it was a period...

Why did the Christians stop celebrating the Sabbath (Saturday) and start recognizing Sunday as the day of worship? Question and Answer The command to remember the Sabbath and keep it holy was one of the Ten Commandments (Ex. 20:8-11).

In Genesis 1:3–5, God created light on His first day of creation. This light appears to have illuminated His creation from day one to day three, provided a separation of day from night, and was supported by what we know as the rotation of the earth (a day). In addition, to separating day from night it appears that (given our earthly perspective)...

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...

What is the meaning of the “days” of creation? Question and Answer Moses wrote that “in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth” (Ex. 31:17).

Since Jesus was raised from the dead on a Sunday morning, hasn't Sunday become the correct day of worship for Christians? Question and Answer There are only three New Testament passages which seem to make the case for Sunday worship. But a close examination shows that none of them supports this answer. First, Acts 20:7 describes Paul's farewell...

Do the words “asleep in Jesus” support the teaching of some denominations that death is temporary oblivion; when we die, we lose consciousness until Judgment Day. Question and Answer No. True, Paul speaks of “those who have fallen asleep in Christ,” but in none of the texts where the expression appears does he mean oblivion or (as some say)...

What is the prayer of faith? If I learn how to do the prayer of faith, will I be healed? Question and Answer You need to update your translation. The "prayer of faith" is better translated, "the prayer offered in faith" (James 5:15). That rendering clears up some problems with the verse. The text is part of a rich passage about prayer...
