I’ve heard some people preach that AIDS is a direct judgment from God against those who are homosexuals and whose life-practices are opposed to the law of God.

My friends consider me naïve because I don’t concentrate on the negatives in life. The truth is, there are a lot of negatives. Some of my friends walk through life with the attitude, “Woe is me, I am undone.” But I just can’t do that. There are so many beautiful things in this world to cling to, to lift me up. Am I just totally unrealistic?

In a conversation with hostile religious leaders about the relative worth of various Commandments, Jesus' reply to one whose words virtually paralleled His own was, “You are not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34).

I have a terrible time believing that God can actually forgive me. I know what the Bible says, but when push comes to shove, I just feel so defeated at night when my head hits the pillow. My memories are loaded with so many things that keep coming back to haunt my fellowship with God. How can God forgive me when I can’t let go of all this...

They say that the Devil is “negative thoughts that people have about themselves, negative thoughts that people allow to take on a life of their own.” What does the Bible say?

Jesus teaches us to speak to God as Father, right? What about adults who address the Lord as "Daddy"? Are they out of line? Question and Answer Eccentric, I'd say, but possibly not out of line. They may have heard somewhere that the Aramaic word Abba found in three passages (Mark 14:36; Rom. 8:15; Gal. 4:6) was the term Jewish children used...

What do you think about the claims of some that Noah’s ark has been discovered? Question and Answer All I know about the search for Noah’s ark, and the latest claims to have found it, is what I read in the newspaper and/or the Internet.
