Do the words “asleep in Jesus” support the teaching of some denominations that death is temporary oblivion; when we die, we lose consciousness until Judgment Day.

What is your view of veneration of or devotion to the Virgin Mary? Question and Answer I see no evidence in Scripture that the mother of Jesus or the saints (as defined by the Roman Catholic Church) were to be venerated. When Cornelius fell on his knees before Peter, Peter yanked him to his feet, saying, “Stand up. … I am only a man myself”...

A Roman Catholic friend says it is presumptuous to claim to be sure you're saved before you actually die and meet God. It is sinful pride, he believes. Is he right?

My life is very hard. None of my prayers get answered. Does God have it in for me? Question and Answer I don't know how hard your life is, but you must have good reasons for describing your life as being very hard. It is harder than it should be, at least when compared to the average person's experiences. However, your life (mine too) cannot...

In Matthew 22:37 the word strength is dropped from the list that includes heart, soul, and mind in Mark 12:30 and Luke 10:27. It seems to me that all four are important to make it a complete picture. Do you have any thoughts on why Matthew didn’t include all four? Question and Answer The answer to this question, in this case, might be simple.

Why do some versions of the Bible leave out Mark 11:26? Is this verse part of Scripture? Question and Answer In the New King James Version, Mark 11:26 says, “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” But other translations, including the ESV, NLT, and NIV do not print the verse, and the NASB...

I’ve heard it said that Jesus endured humiliation and physical pain joyfully. How does this fit with His agony in the garden when He asked, “may this cup be taken from me” (Matt. 26:39)?
