Q. My sister is a Jehovah’s Witness to whom I have witnessed to for over thirty years to no avail. I’m aware that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe they have replaced Israel as God’s people/witnesses. My sister recently used the term ‘spiritual Israel’ in regard to herself and other Jehovah’s Witnesses and my response was that I did not believe in a spiritual Israel. I do not subscribe to Replacement Theology in any form, believing that God will keep every promise He has made including those made to the nation of Israel and the Jews as a people. My questions are 1) who specifically are Abraham’s children by circumcision of the heart, and what and who could be spiritual Israel if there is such a people?
Q. Now that national health care has been forced upon us in the US, I see the verichip following close behind, as an excuse to keep all of our medical information supposedly accessible through it. I see this as the mark of the beast, and will refuse it even if it costs me my life. What are your views on the “chip”?
Q. I am going through the book of Mark on your web site. You say in chapter 3 that anyone who is a believer can never blaspheme the Holy Spirit. I understand that but, What if that person decides in his heart that he no longer is a believer and turns away and becomes a agnostic or atheist. Is he ever able to turn back to Christ?

Q. I lost my wife 4 months ago and I very much want to go and be with her in heaven. In fact I’ve been praying for that to happen. Until it does, I’ve decided to remain alone. But I’ve been told that’s wrong, and that I should look for another woman to marry. Where does God’s word say I need to remarry? If I wish to remain unmarried until I leave this world, what’s wrong with that?
Q. I am a born again Christian and have been for many years. I love the Lord and I know he is the only answer. However, I know how God loves a humble heart and can’t stand people who are high on themselves. By us worshiping God forever and all the time, is God saying he wants us to be humble but yet he covets all the worship all the time? I know no one else deserves worship, but does God have any humbleness about him? Will we get to do other things in heaven and not just worship him all the time? I know this question might sound bad of me, but i was just hoping that God wasn’t someone who wanted to be exalted all the time.
Q. When we get to heaven , will we still have the Holy Spirit indwelling us?
Q. My girlfriend and I have been praying and talking with God about marriage and have been following His guidance throughout our relationship. I wanted to ask if you had any recommendations on some resources (books, sites, etc.) we could look into about preparing for marriage as a couple seeking Christ. We both realize that is a very large step for our spiritual lives and each other. Naturally, neither of us having been married before we realize that we don’t have any experience or insight about marriage and know that rather than just building upon a good foundation, we have the opportunity to allow God to build a great one. Thanks so much! Continue reading…
Q. My question has to do with Christ being the light and we will have no need for the sun to light our way in the New Jerusalem. I always thought that the Bible says that we will always have the seasons and night and day. Does this pertain only to the earth and not to The New Jerusalem and mean that we will not sleep like we do during our night now?
Q. My sister lost a baby girl through crib death over forty years ago, and still the pain persists. She has often asked me why God took her daughter. I have to admit that I don’t know, even though I know my niece is with our Father in Heaven. For all these years, my sister has been very angry with God about this. How do I answer her question without getting into an argument?
Q. I am married to a man who, although he believes in Jesus, cannot stand anything to do with organized religion, including even the idea of Church because of the problems that it has caused in the world. He frequently says “All in the name of religion”. How can I help him to separate our God from the hatred, war, hypocrisy, money grubbing nature of organized religion today? And I guess really, I ask for me too, since I agree with him. I guess in a way I worry that if we do decide to have kids that there may be some issues in how to raise them. I want my kids to have all the exposure to Jesus and Christianity that I had.
