Question and Answer

September 1, 2010

Numbers 10:9–10 (NASB) tells the Lord's people to do certain things to remind God of their existence or need of help in battle. Why should God need to be reminded? Question and Answer God didn't need to be reminded. He wanted to be remembered by His people, and to be sought by them—for their welfare, not His. But they needed memory aids...

An old man once told me about how people have two natures. One is represented as a good dog and the other as a bad dog. The good dog fights to protect what is good in our lives, but the bad dog only wants to see the person’s life filled with things that displease God. The winner in this particular dogfight is the dog you feed the most—do you...

I have always thought of God as someone who is on His throne in heaven counting all the things I’ve done, keeping track of all the good and the bad things. I’ve been a Christian for five years, and I know that I’m saved and His blood has cleansed me of all my sin, but I still see Him as counting every single sin I commit, looking for every...

I have always been told that God knows the future. If that is the case, how do you explain God’s choice to create us knowing beforehand that Adam and Eve would sin? On that same note, why should I even ask God for things when He already knows my future? Question and Answer That God knows the future is a proposition with widespread support...

What happens to children in heaven? Do they grow, or do they stay children forever? Question and Answer We don't know for certain. The Bible does not answer that question. But we can think about it and come to reasonable conclusions. First, it says clearly that people in heaven will be changed; we shall have new bodies. However, “what [they]...

I know that God knows all things, but I don’t understand why He asks people questions. Could you help me understand why an omniscient God asks people questions? Question and Answer I am delighted to deal with this question. You are correct in your observation that God is ommiscient, i.e., all-knowing. God is infinite and unlimited in knowledge...

Since atheists do not believe in God or Satan, what do they think is the cause of all the evil happening in the world today? Question and Answer A consistent atheist does not consider terrible things (murder, rape, robbery, war, lying, stealing) happening in the world today to be evil. Evil is a moral category that implies an absolute standard.

I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I started out praying a lot, but it just seemed like my prayers weren’t being answered. I began to think that maybe only special people get their prayers answered—and maybe I wasn’t spiritual enough.
