Why Another Temple?

Q.  Can you explain why the rebuilding of the Temple is so important? Why, when Jesus died to take away our sins and we are able to worship God without a temple?
And why is a Temple necessary during the Millennium?  If Jesus is here with us, why does the Temple need to be rebuilt?  It seems to be so vital to the Israelis. Forgive my ignorance on this matter.

Virgins Or Bridesmaids?

Q.  I have read Matthew chapter 25 about the 10 virgins, in the King James Bible, and it doesn’t mention anything in there about bridesmaids. Where did you get bridesmaids from Matthew 25?

Another Partial Rapture Question

Q.  Which Christians will go into the Rapture? Will it be those who appear to not sin as much as other Christians do? The reason why I’m asking is because I believe I am saved because I believe that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ died for my sins and rose on the third day, but I still struggle with sin daily even with small sins. Would you please explain this to me?

Is Josephus A Reliable Historian?

Q.  As I was reading one of your responses, I noticed you referenced the Jewish historian Josephus. My former pastor claims that Josephus was an unreliable source, and was a self-serving ally of Rome. Have you come across such allegations?

Why Are We Fractured?

Q. I have been perplexed for some time now about the controversies that rage within the Body of Christ these days. There are large groups who hold views that other large groups claim are apostate.  How can we all be led by the same Spirit in so many conflicting ways?  Why is the discernment in one believer so different from the discernment in another?  Why is there not a consensus amongst the Body of Christ?

Are Paul’s Letters Authentic?

Q. I wanted to see what your thoughts were on the 13 letters penned by Paul.  I have read in some research that scholars only are sure that 7 were penned by Paul, maybe another 2 are 50-50, and the rest are likely not penned by Paul (the pastoral epistles).  Personally, I think Paul did pen them but have no proof of this other than faith.  Since early church fathers did not question Paul’s letters as part of the New Testament canon, I would believe we should not either.

Is God A Spirit Or Not?

Q.  I always thought that God was a spiritual form only but after reading one of your commentaries it stated that when God was living in the Holy of Holies the high priest would visit with him once a year and a rope would be tied around his ankles to pull him out if he displeased God to keep God from destroying him if he sinned in his presence.  This indicates to me that God was in human form at this time.  Is this correct?

Believers Who Don’t Care About Sin?

Q.  When believers choose to live sinful lifestyles (i.e. have an attitude of I do not care whether I sin or not, since I love sin and it is my lifestyle), does that mean they would reject eternal security if their intent is to live a sinful lifestyle? Or does it reveal that they are not truly saved?
