Question 5

July 1, 2018

Would you provide an example of misusing or taking God’s name in vain? Question 5 The use of God’s name in profanity is a sad case in point. Sometimes people call down God’s damnation on other people. This is a serious offense to God for a number of reasons. When these profane words are uttered, they are trivializing or ignoring God’s holiness...

Question and Answer

August 1, 2013

I have always been told that God knows the future. If that is the case, how do you explain God’s choice to create us knowing beforehand that Adam and Eve would sin? On that same note, why should I even ask God for things when He already knows my future? Question and Answer That God knows the future is a proposition with widespread support...

Question and Answer

March 1, 2015

I’ve always believed that we are saved by grace not works, but Jesus’ instruction to the rich young ruler is confusing. The ruler asks, “What do I have to do to inherit eternal life.” Jesus says, “Then love your neighbor as yourself.” What does Jesus mean? Question and Answer The Lord Jesus was not saying that keeping the commandments and...

Question and Answer

March 1, 2013

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...

Love for All and Turn the Other Cheek?

December 1, 2020

I’m struck by the psalmist’s pleas to punish sinners and destroy enemies, compared to Jesus’ love for sinners and admonition to “turn the other cheek.” Why is this?

Question and Answer

December 1, 2006

I have tried to find a Scripture reference to explain the use of “in Jesus’ name” we pray at the end of prayers and can only come up with all the references to doing everything “in His name” which of course would include praying. A lost loved one has insisted that this is not necessary. Could you please give your thoughts on the subject?

Question and Answer

April 1, 2016

I am wondering if God (as distinct from Christ) has emotions? I have heard some pastors and theologians claim that God has no emotions. It is very hard for me to think about or feel close to a kind of robot God. Question and Answer Some time ago, a number of theologians did articulate a doctrine known as the “impassability of God” in which...

Question and Answer

January 1, 2012

God is uncreated and, therefore pre-existent. Light, a common sym­bol for God, is created (Gen. 2:3). Why then is not dark­ness—which is not created—a more appropriate symbol than light? Question and Answer I would suggest that neither darkness nor light is intended to be a symbol of God’s uncre­ated, pre-existent nature. As contrasted with...

What does it mean in Exodus 7 and successive chapters when it says that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart when Moses—speaking for God—asked him to “let my people go.” That doesn’t sound terribly fair, does it? Question and Answer This is a knotty question. Scholars have struggled with this for ages, including Jewish OT teachers. Some suggest...

Question 1

July 1, 2018

Is there a difference between the will of God and the guidance of God? Question 1 Yes, there is a difference between the Lord’s will and the Lord’s guidance. God’s will for our lives is plainly revealed in Scripture. For example, it is God’s will for us to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in everything (1 Thess. 5:16–18).
