Why would the Law of Moses require a woman to marry the man who raped her? This just seems so wrong. Question and Answer This reflects a misunderstanding of Deuteronomy 22:28–29: “If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must...

Question 3

I was told that according to Matthew 18:20, all that is required for a church to exist is two or three people gathered together in Jesus’ name. Is that the teaching of this passage? Question 3 No. This is a misunderstanding, the result of not paying careful attention to the context of this verse. In context, the concern under discussion...

Please help me with the definition of a New Testa­ment apostle. I have been told that to be an apostle a man had to have seen Christ af­ter the resurrection. only two pas­sages are cited as proof (Acts 1:22; 1 Cor. 9:1), and these seem weak. Question and Answer How tight a definition do you re­quire, and how much proof do you need? When...

Please address briefly the subject of Christian Universalism. How widely accepted is this belief? Question and Answer Universalism is the doctrine that says that nobody will go to hell, everybody will be saved.

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...

What does it mean for us to become the “righteousness of God” in Christ (2 Cor. 5:21)? Question and Answer This is a stunning and breathtaking passage of Scripture! The Lord Jesus died in our place on the cross (Rom. 8:3; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24). Therefore, when we trust Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, we become the righteousness...

Why did God strike Uzzah dead when he reached out to steady the ark of God after the oxen stumbled (2 Sam. 6:6–7)? He was only trying to help. Question and Answer The Lord’s actions seem capricious and unkind. Even David became angry (2 Sam. 6:8). After all, they were transporting the ark on a new cart and worshiping the Lord while moving...

Why was the Law of Moses so harsh, calling for an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth? This seems so primitive and callous. Question and Answer This law, frequently called the “law of retaliation,” is also found in Exodus 21:23–25, Leviticus 24:19–20, and Deuteronomy 19:16–21. It is perceived as vengeful and excessive, when in fact it...

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? I do not subscribe to it, but I’d like to learn more. Question and Answer The relationship between Israel and the church...

Is confession of sins necessary to be saved? Question and Answer If you are asking if we must itemize each of our sins and confess them, the answer is no. It would be impossible to remember all of our sins in order to confess them. Besides, the Bible teaches that salvation depends on believing the gospel, which requires us to “turn to God...
