Why Did God Call It A Sin?

Q.  I know homosexuality is a sin but I also know people have trouble with it because they do not understand why it is wrong for two guys or girls to love each other. I know it is Bibically wrong, but is there any moral component to this?  For example I know stealing is a sin but that’s because it hurts the persons involved. I am certified to do psychological research so I am wondering why homosexuality is so wrong (besides the Bible saying it is a sin).

The Number

Q.   I notice that you stand with those who believe that the rapture does not have a set date, but instead a set number of believers who must be completed in order for it to take place. I was wondering if there were any clues given as to that number. I only remember reading “a multitude that could not be numbered” for the saints that stand behind the Lord at the final white throne judgment. Thank you for your insight and praise God there are those like you who encourage steadfast Christians to think.

Dreaming Dreams And Seeing Visions

Q.  My question is  about Joel 2:28.  I hear many people today claiming that the Lord has spoken to them through dreams and visions about how these end times are going to play out and how we need to prepare with food and arming ourselves. When I asked one of these persons to give me Bible verses to back this up they beat around the bush and I really didn’t get a verse of scripture.  There are so many people claiming that they are getting words from the Lord with this method that I feel left out! The only Word I get from The Lord is in the Bible. So are they right and can this verse of scripture be used to back them up?

Famine In The Midst Of Plenty

Q.   Do you see any connection between the Oil and the Wine that the Good Samaritan poured into the injured man’s wounds, compared to the command in Revelation 6  during famine ” See thou hurt not the Oil and the Wine ” ?   One commentator said that the latter passage referred to Christians being protected during the tribulation,  but that doesn’t square  with the Antichrist being given power to overcome the Trib Saints.  What say you ?
