Shouldn’t Bathsheba share a part of the blame in David’s moral failure in 2 Samuel 11 since she was bathing outside, attracting David’s attention? Would you please clarify this issue for me? Question and Answer No, Bathsheba shares no blame in this matter; she was the victim of the king’s sexual abuse. David was Israel’s greatest king. The...

Is the “faith promise” plan of raising support for its mission’s program scriptural? A few of the members of our church say that it is unscriptural. Question and Answer How do you define “scriptural?” As the term is commonly used, an activity is scriptural only if it was practiced in the first-century churches described in the Bible. But...

I have been a Christian for the last several years, having previously lived as a believer “in name only.” After being born again I found myself committed to living for Christ and wanting to do whatever He asked. Jesus has changed the way I live my life. Lately people refer to me as one of “those evangelical Christians,” like it is some kind...

If Christ already dwells in believers by His Spirit, why does Paul pray for strength for us so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith (Eph. 3:16–17)? Question and Answer When we trust Christ as our Lord and Savior, He takes up residence in us by His Spirit. He indwells every true follower of Christ. In fact, if the Spirit of God...

I learned from Scripture that God created everything. To me, the word everything is all encompassing, meaning all things, both good and evil. My Sunday school teacher says that God did not create evil, the Devil did. I disagree. That would give the Devil a share in creation. What do you think? Question and Answer Actually, everything does...

Is there an easy way to explain that Jesus is God? I witness to a person who can’t seem to accept that fact. He says, "If Jesus is God, then how did He die? God can’t die! So Jesus is not God." I have shared some Scripture with him, but I need help explaining it. Question and Answer This is a question that most Christians struggle with at...

Is it true that if you have the Holy Ghost in you, you will speak in tongues? I put my faith and trust in Jesus but I don’t speak in tongues. Do I not have the Holy Ghost? Question and Answer You do indeed have the Holy Spirit. But He manifests His presence in you in other ways than by miraculous speech. That gift was never intended to validate...

What is the meaning of “handed over to Satan” in 1 Timothy 1:20? Does this indicate hopelessness instead of faith that God would change these people? Or are they really “evil” people? Question and Answer In this passage Paul is charging Timothy to engage in spiritual warfare, to fight the good fight. The rules of engagement in spiritual...

I hear preachers characterizing Moses as a “whiner.” Why is that? I know Moses was sometimes lacking in faith, but he didn’t give up. Am I whining when I bring my problems to God? Question and Answer I don’t think so. God is the one who we should come to when we find ourselves between the proverbial rock and hard place. We either worry or...

Is it showing a lack of faith when we bring before God the same prayer requests over and over again? Is this what the Word of God is warning us against when it refers in the Scripture to “vain repetition”? Question and Answer My understanding of “vain repetitions” found in Matthew 6:7 is pagan practice of praying in chants and formulated...
