Question and Answer

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...

Since heterosexual monogamous marriage is God’s ideal for marriage, why did some followers of the Lord in the Old Testament have more than one wife? Question and Answer It is true that some Old Testament saints practiced polygamy (1 Sam. 1:1–2; 30:5; 2 Sam. 3:2–5). King Solomon tops the list with 700 wives and 300 concubines (1 Kings 11:1–6)!

I often hear Christians use the phrase “It’s not about you.” I think I understand what they mean: the world does not revolve around you. But I think this phrase flies in the face of the metaphors Christ used to explain His relationship with us, such as husband/wife, sheep/ shepherd, hen/chicks, vine/branches. I see those examples as being...

When a Christian is serious about marriage and his or her spouse commits adultery, isn't that biblical grounds for divorce? If it is biblical, is it also mandated? Question and Answer The Bible teaches the sanctity of marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman before God. Matthew 19 initially seems to indicate that divorce is never...

My wife just nags me constantly. Nothing I do seems even close to pleasing her. Frankly, I’m fed up. The single life sure looks appealing these days. Marriage is just too much work. What can I do to change her? Question and Answer A lot of us men seem to think that it’s the woman’s responsibility to make a marriage work. While I believe...

I had a crummy marriage—fighting every day. Dr. Gary Chapman's Five Love Languages book didn't work for us. It needed another chapter. But I have two questions: Will we know each other in heaven? Will we be stuck with each other as husband and wife for eternity? Question and Answer Yes to the first question, and no to the second question.

I divorced my wife and married another woman, but that second marriage didn't work either. We got divorced. A year later my first wife—who, like me, had remarried—also was divorced a second time. We started dating. Now we want to get married and start all over again. Our pastor says Deuteronomy 24:1–4 prohibits the remarriage of a man to his...

You said on one of your Today in the Word programs that God wants us to live holy lives. The lady with whom I have been intimate now says she doesn't want to do that any more. She says the Bible is right and she agrees with you. I know what she means—but isn't there any wriggle room in that? It doesn't seem right to me. Question and Answer...

Some years ago, after separation and divorce I remarried. Slowly but steadily I renewed a broken relationship with the Lord, and got involved in a new church. Now I want to serve as an elder but a friend who says he speaks for the board tells me that the “husband of one wife” qualification in 1 Timothy 3 bars me from the elder board. I feel...

I have heard all my life that God is eternal. What does the Bible mean when it says that God is eternal? Question and Answer What you heard all your life about God being eternal is true, the Bible declares it (Gen. 21:33; Ps. 90:1-2; John 1:1; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 9:1; Rev. 1:1). This means that God is without beginning or end, and in His being...
