My son joined a cult. Previously (until he went to college), he was a good Christian boy. Is he lost forever? My heart is broken. Question and Answer Lost, yes. Forever lost?

Is it possible, as some suggest, that a Buddhist or a Muslim, if he truly lived his life according to the tenets of his religion, would be welcomed by God into His kingdom?

Both my wife and I grew up in Christian families, and know what it means to have parents who loved God and loved us. My adult daughter was raised in what I always felt was a godly home.

When Christ saw Mary after the resurrection, why did He say, “Touch me not”? What was different about His body that would have made it wrong to touch Him? Question and Answer There is no question that His body after the resurrection was a flesh-and-blood body. There was nothing “wrong” with His body that would affect us if it were touched.

Is it wrong to smoke? Question and Answer Ask a medical person and you'll get an unequivocal answer: Do not smoke! The use of tobacco is primarily a health issue.

Does Satan actually have access to heaven? Question and Answer The Bible says so.

Is it wrong to be cremated? Question and Answer Sometimes it is wrong not to be cremated. Natural disasters such as tsunamis and earthquakes leave the terrain strewn with decaying bodies that must be torched and bulldozed into quickly dug trenches.
