May 1, 2006

Among some “futurists,” there is talk of implanting chips in human beings that contain one’s complete ID. A sophisticated electronic device could scan the hand or retina where the chip was implanted, and ordinarily private information would appear on the monitor, ready to be seen and read.

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”...

Is there an easy way to explain that Jesus is God? I witness to a person who can’t seem to accept that fact. He says, "If Jesus is God, then how did He die? God can’t die! So Jesus is not God." I have shared some Scripture with him, but I need help explaining it. Question and Answer This is a question that most Christians struggle with at...

My question is based on Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Is it true that people living in the past, or at the present in remote parts of the world, can be saved...

Is curiosity a God-given quality, or is it a temptation we should avoid or walk away from? Question and Answer Curiosity is defined as the desire to know and learn.

In the December 2007 issue, you said God knows everything about us. Since God already knows everything, why do we need to pray for ourselves and others?
