A friend committed suicide. One of my business partners says people who commit suicide go straight to hell. Is that what the Bible teaches? I need to know.

Someone said that the church in America focuses too much on the individual. Is this true? Question and Answer Yes! Most of the imperatives and exhortations given to us in the New Testament are not given to the individual; they are given to the redeemed community of faith. Here are some examples: Hebrews 4:14–16, 6:1–2, 10:19–24, 12:1–3.

Even if the Bible teaches that a preborn baby is alive, should we still try to impose our religious views on secular society? Question And Answer Abortion is not a religious issue but a moral one.

I have heard all my life that God is eternal. What does the Bible mean when it says that God is eternal?
