Question and Answer

November 2, 2005

I brought my children up to honor their father and mother, but ever since they got married my daughters have refused to listen to my advice about clothing. They wear blue jeans or short skirts. These things are not right for women. What do you advise? Question and Answer I never tell married women what to wear. In 1 Timothy 2:9, Paul uses...

Why did God change Jacob's name to Israel? Question and Answer In Bible times, babies were given names thought to be appropriate. Nobody invented names by connecting unrelated sounds. Jacob was given his name because of circumstances of his birth (Gen. 25:24–26). It was not a flattering name; it meant “supplanter” or “deceiver.” Subsequent...

Whenever Paul wrote a letter to a church, he addressed it to the elders and deacons or saints, not to “Reverend Joe.” Two questions: (1) does that mean that church leadership should not be dominated by one man but by a plurality of leaders? And (2) are churches that are run by one leader in error? Question and Answer Church polity (that...

My adult children have stopped attending church. We have invited them to attend with us, and we have sent them biblical reasons why they should be in church. They still do not want to go to church, even though they say that they believe in God. What can we do? They say that they can watch television preachers in their homes. They prefer the...

As a middle-aged woman in the church, I often have young women and men ask me about the disappointments of life, particularly the problem of not having found a mate. A young woman has said to me, “I won’t be able to bear it if I don’t find someone, especially since I have prayed so hard.” Or, I hear, “My friends all have someone, and they...

Lately, our Bible reading club has been reading the Old Testament with growing dismay. Its butchery appalls us, principally because it is attributed to God. God sends armies against helpless people with orders to slaughter them. God orders the indiscriminate killing of women and children. What gives? Is the God of the Old Testament different...

You always knew what was on Peter’s mind. What do you think of his personality? Question and Answer I think Peter was impulsive. When Jesus was transfigured and Moses and Elijah appeared with Him, Peter said they should build some kind of a memorial to the vision. During Jesus’ arrest, Peter intervened by slicing off a servant’s ear. When...

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. Apparently, explorers found some petrified beams high on a mountain in Iran. To the members of the expedition,...

Is suicide one of God’s ways to take a believer home to heaven? Question and Answer The question is improperly framed. Suicide is the killing of one’s self. It is wrong; it is the destruction of life, which is God’s gift to us. How could killing it be “God’s way” to take us home to heaven? For many individuals, however, including some Christians,...
