What does the word hope really mean? I hear the word so often in church about anything from “hoping to be ready” to a vague “hoping in the Lord” to “I hope my teenager changes.” It doesn’t often seem to be said with conviction or foundation; it’s just a kind of expression applied to many circumstances. Question and Answer What you’re describing...

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”?

I have two questions about Romans 11:25–27. Did God “harden” the Jews who don’t believe in Jesus? In other words, is their unbelief His doing? Second, will every Jew be saved? Question and Answer First, when reading Romans 11, think nationally—of Israel. In that chapter, Paul is not thinking about individuals, except to make the point that...

When I was growing up, I was taught that Sunday was a “day of rest,” a time when one did very little. I couldn’t play outside, do homework, or anything much but stay in the house and read, preferably a Christian book. So, I came to dread the day. Today things seem to have gone to the opposite extreme. Christians play sports, shop, go to movies,...

Why are the words of Paul considered Scripture, and does he contradict the words of Jesus?

In my view, the Lord’s solution to the problem of heart adultery in Matthew 5:27–30 is extreme. How am I to understand our Lord’s words? Is He saying that we are literally to gouge out our eyes and cut off our right hand in order to deal with the problem of the sinful desires of our hearts? Question and Answer Our Lord’s language of gouging...

I know that the Word teaches that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and I'm positive that the Lord Jesus Christ said it, but I can't seem to find it in the Gospels. The concept is obviously in the Word, but I'm not finding the text. I know there are passages we sometimes quote that seem like they are right from the Bible, like “This...
