Matthew 27:25 says, “All the people answered, ‘Let his blood be on us and on our children!’ ”Does this verse imply that all Jews are responsible for Christ’s death? Question and Answer Absolutely not. This quote made by a mob certainly was not representative of all Jews even at that time. Several times this crowd was agitated by Jewish authorities,...

I feel that God doesn’t answer my prayers. How can I pray in a more effective way? Question and Answer First, we are to pray according to God’s will (1 John 5:14). Second, we are to live in close fellowship with Christ, not allowing unconfessed sin in our lives (John 15:7; 1 John 1:9). Third, we are to pray with faith and trust (James 1:5–8).

Since the Lord never tempts His people, why does Jesus instruct us in the model prayer to pray, “Lead us not into temptation” (Matt. 6:13) Question and Answer God’s holy character is at the heart of this question. In His goodness and wisdom, God tests us to bring out the best in us or to reveal to us His character and provision in our lives...

I’m a KJV man, which says that homosexuals are sinners—something your NIV won’t do. How do you explain that the people before the Flood were not called sinners? Question and Answer Because space is limited, I cannot list the NIV’s references to homosexuals. However, a concordance and Bible dictionary may persuade you to agree with me that...

Are there any Old Testament examples of someone standing in the gap in prayer? Question and Answer Yes. The classic Old Testament example is Moses. When Israel made a golden calf and worshiped it, their idolatry angered the Lord to the extent that He was going to destroy them as a people! Moses, however, stood in the breach for Israel when...

I have tried to find a Scripture reference to explain the use of “in Jesus’ name” we pray at the end of prayers and can only come up with all the references to doing everything “in His name” which of course would include praying. A lost loved one has insisted that this is not necessary. Could you please give your thoughts on the subject?

Why doesn’t our church grow? As far as we can tell, all the members are decent, God-fearing people, and we are willing to try new methods. Question and Answer Righteous living by a church’s members does not ensure numerical growth. Our Lord addressed His disciples as a “little flock” (Luke 12:32). Of course, that was before Pentecost when...

Why are there so many Christian denominations? Unsaved friends complain that the multiplicity of church denominations turns them off. Are some denominations better than others? Question and Answer You ask two questions. In some, perhaps most, cases, the answer to the first question lies in sinful human nature, expressing itself in contrary...

Why are the words of Paul considered Scripture, and does he contradict the words of Jesus? Question and Answer The 13 epistles written by the apostle Paul most certainly are Scripture, breathed out from God through the human author without error. The apostle Peter recognized Paul's writing at Scripture within one of his own letters: "Our...

Why are we told to pray for the peace of Jerusalem? That seems unlikely to occur. Question and Answer True, conflict in the Middle East centering in control of Jerusalem seems to be irresolvable. However, the Bible indicates that what is impossible for us to accomplish is not impossible for God. He has plans for Jerusalem, and they will...
