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.
Q. I was brought up with Roman Catholic faith but started going to a Baptist church and became born again. At the same time (of being born again) I met a guy – a Catholic & very much into his faith. We are very much in love and want to get married but have a serious obstacle which is faith & ways of worship.
I don’t know what to do! I’ve been praying about it & doing a lot of research, sharing it with him to show him why I believe what I do, but so far it’s all pointless! I need your prayers (for I know you are a brother in Christ) as well as encouragement or tips on the major issues of difference between the 2 sects. To tell you the truth I feel sick and tired of all the major sects and the way Christ has been divided.
Q. I have a question about 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. It seems to me this is a problem for the pre-trib rapture. Paul states “we who are alive and remain until the coming of the LORD shall not proceed those who have fallen asleep…” In other words, believers are on the earth just before the resurrection of the saved, which clearly occurs after the tribulation, then after they are raised (on the last day as JESUS stated several times in John 6) we who are alive and remain will be caught up with them…” Paul includes himself in a group that remains until the resurrection of the saved, so they have come through the tribulation. This is a major problem for me. How do you explain it?
Q. What was God doing before He created the earth?
