Question and Answer

April 1, 2012

Does God really care about each person individually? There are some days when I wonder if God has any idea of everything I am going through, the pain I’m suffering, and the burdens I’m under. Question and Answer I think the words of Jesus are very explicit: He said of sparrows that none of them fall to the ground without God’s knowledge.

I often feel as though, under the pressure of addictive sin, I have no choice but to fall. How much choice do we really have when something seems impossible to resist? Question and Answer This is a very good question, and sadly it suggests a deception too often propagated about one of the great gifts God gave us, the gift of choice. Because...

With reference to Jesus, Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given to men, by which we must be saved.” What about people who lived before Jesus? I’m wondering about Aztecs and Eskimos who never heard a prophet or saw a line of Scripture? Question and Answer This is a frequent question...

Is it true that we don’t actually accept salvation until our point of earthly death, until we’ve sacrificed our life up to the last breath for the will of God? Is it true, as I believe, that we can accept forgiveness on earth, and be under God’s grace, yet decide to come out of it, completely turning down God and the gifts God has prepared...

Is there a study principle I can employ that would help me to distinguish between “spiritual” and “physical” concerning use of the word death in the New Testament writing?

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...

Does Satan actually have access to heaven? Question and Answer The Bible says so. You can’t read the book of Job without acknowledging that God allows Satan not only to come before His throne but to actually have discourse with Him. Satan is called the accuser of our brothers in Revelation 12:10. He appears before God and makes aspersions...

Is the Roman Catholic Church the mother of prostitutes in Revelation 17? Question and Answer I see no convincing reason to identify the Roman Catholic Church with the mother of harlots in Revelation 17, certainly not as we know it today. In my judgment, Revelation 17 is about the development of a universal, world church—called a prostitute—that...

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...
