Q. I have a question about the “Chosen”. The scriptures teach us that all who believe are saved. To me that means anyone has the opportunity to be saved. Christ said when He was lifted up all men would be drawn to Him. To me that means he calls all men to repentance. I know not all respond positively to this call. Some accept and others reject. But what I’m trying to figure out is; Believing in free will opportunity for all, who are the Chosen?
Q. Can you please clarify two passages in the Bible ? One is in John 8:44 which stated “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him”. The other verse is in Ezekiel 28:15 which states “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee”. These scriptures are both describing Lucifer are they not? If he was a murderer from the beginning, then how could he have been perfect in all his ways? How can they both be correct?
Q. I think it’s interesting that in the Parable of the Ten Virgins Jesus said to the five foolish ones, “I never knew you”. In the Sheep and Goat judgment He says to the goats “depart from me” while in the Sermon on the Mount He says both: “I never knew you–depart from me”. Have you noticed that?
Q. When Jesus calmed the storm, raised the dead, fed the 5,000 with two fish and a loaf of bread was He using divine power or was He relying on the power of the Father in those instances?
Q. I am wondering where bacteria and viruses came from…the creation account gives no level beyond insect life in Gen 1.25 assuming things that creep means insect world, tho they are ugly, God made them, but microscopic world is not mentioned. Why would God make such things dangerous and harmful to life? If he didn’t who did?
Q. After Satan’s fall, why did God allow him to deceive Adam and Eve, and to continue to run rampant throughout the earth destroying lives when God could have simply cast him into the lake of fire from the beginning and have it done with, sparing mankind (including Adam and Eve)?
Q. If one is living through the tribulation period and dies do they go to heaven to be judged at the time of their death? I guess what I am asking is will believers who die during the tribulation go to heaven while unbelievers who die go to hell awaiting the judgment?
Q. I believe that Jesus paid the penalty for my sin by dying on the cross. But, I was told by a deacon that I have to believe Christ literally “shed his blood” and died to pay the penalty for my sin. My question is, was it both his blood and death that paid the penalty? I’m really confused because I thought I only had to accept his death as full payment.
Q. I have a question regarding myself being a believer and being married to an unbeliever. When I married my husband, I thought that he believed in Jesus as our savior. I hate to admit it but back then we both were not attending church and I didn’t know until we were married 15 years that my husband misled me. He thinks we evolved from Apes. Is my marriage to him a sin? I pray that he will accept Christ and realize his thoughts on evolution is incorrect. Doesn’t Jesus want us to bring people like my husband to him? I love reading your site and thank you for blessing me with tons of inspiration and devotion time. Continue reading…
