Question and Answer

June 1, 2019

Does the inner working of the Father in us eliminate our responsibility to participate in Christ being at home in our hearts? Question and Answer No. God’s work within us does not eliminate our responsibility to trust the Lord. Jesus is at home in our hearts through faith (Eph. 3:17). And when we come to faith in Christ as our Lord and Savior,...

If John’s Gospel did not use the term trinity, why should we use the term? I just cannot understand: if there is but one God, how can He be made of three co-equal persons working in unity? Doesn’t one mean singular? Question and Answer This is probably the most frequently asked and the most difficult question one can pose concerning the...

I once taught a Sunday school class on the rewards of living a life that is obedient to Christ, based on 1 Corinthians 9:23–27. A couple of people in the class suggested that they were not working to receive crowns in heaven, but rather because they loved Christ with their whole hearts. They said crowns were not important to them. What does...

Over many years I’ve experienced depression that comes and goes. I know that in the years when I didn’t have hope, Hope had me. I can see God working in my life, drawing me ever closer to Him, but these last few nights have been hard to take. The storm that I’m in now has been continuing for a while. I’m scared and don’t know how to get my...

A troubled friend of mine asked recently for my opinion on whether a Christian can actually go on disability when his health will no longer allow him to work regularly. He said he has a heart problem and the cardiologist thought that he could not continue to function in his laborer's job without further sacrificing his health. When he told...

Is it wrong to work for a company that has clients who distribute liquor? Question and Answer The issue here is employment by firms whose commercial activities are—in the opinion of many conservative Christians—unwholesome, even sinful. We acknowledge differences of opinion among believers, but the perspective taken by me is that alcoholic...

Since we are saved by God’s grace and mercy, why should we do good works? Question and Answer The fact that God by His grace and mercy actually saves sinful people like us is stunning! When we receive Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, God lavishes His grace and mercy on us (Eph. 1:8). In salvation God gives us a new nature: the Holy...

What is “the prayer of faith,” and does it always work? Question and Answer James uses this term in a passage that is not easily understood (5:15). It seems to promise more than it always delivers: divine healing in response to “the prayer offered in faith” by the elders of the church. That sounds simple enough, but there are two additional...

I find it a little troubling when Paul declared in Philippians 2:13, “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” But the previous verse says, “work out your salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil. 2:12). Is God in charge or are we? Question and Answer Well, I’m sure that you would agree that of course...

I work in a large company and am one of very few women in engineering. I’m younger than most of my coworkers and yet have experienced upward mobility in a very short time. We divide into “think groups” to create new ideas or amplify old ones. It seems that someone criticizes almost every idea I bring up. I often go home discouraged and find...
