Question and Answer

April 1, 2007

I am confused about gender issues. A former boyfriend wants to change his gender; he wants to become a woman. I think that’s crazy (and sinful). But my mother thinks I am sinful. Every time I wear slacks, which is nearly every day, she reminds me that the Bible tells women not to wear men’s clothing. What about these things? Question and...

Is it really necessary for laypeople to study the Bible, or even read it every day? Isn’t a complete knowledge of the Bible the responsibility of the clergy? Question and Answer The answer to both questions is yes. Knowing the Bible is indeed a primary responsibility of the clergy, but it is not their exclusive responsibility. All of God’s...

A friend says the U.S.A. is mentioned in the Bible. He says someone wrote a book on the topic. My friend is pretty smart. Question and Answer I saw a book that said the Rapture would take place in 1988. It didn’t, of course. I refer to that embarrassing book only to make the point that virtually any nutty idea can find a sponsor in the publishing...

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...

Our pastor upsets some of us by teaching that it is a sin for women to wear pants. He bases his conviction on Deuteronomy 22:5: “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.” Does that verse settle the issue? Question and Answer Not for me, if style or fashion...

Question 1

Jacob, David, Solomon, and Abraham—to name a few in the Bible—were men who had more than one wife. Why were these men honored and blessed by God? They broke God’s commandment! Did God wink at their sin back then, but now He condemns it? Question 1 When we study the Old Testament, we find neither an explicit condemnation of polygamy nor explicit...

Does the Bible have anything to say about racism?

Does the Bible actually forbid having sex before marriage? Question and Answer Yes. The Bible says that virginity before marriage is a true virtue. Compare that to the lifestyles of the “rich and famous” and even all the people like us, a little closer to home. Today sex has been trivialized for both young men and women, and what should...
