Light On Day 1, Sun On Day 4. How Can This Be?

Q. In Genesis 1:3 it says, “And God said let there be light and there was light. ” It was day 1.  In Genesis 1:16 it says, “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” It was day 4.  So if God didn’t create the Sun and Moon until day 4, what was the light He created on day 1?  Also, evenings and morning are determined by the rising and setting of the sun are they not?  But if the sun was not created until the fourth day then what determined the days before that?

The Lamb As It Had Been Slain

Q.   In Revelation 5, John weeps bitterly (or convulsively) for no one is found worthy to open the scroll. The passages are clear that nobody in Heaven, on Earth, nor under the Earth was (or is) worthy. Where then was Jesus before He appeared and took the scroll? John seems to indicate that the Lamb appeared freshly slain. So was John taken back to crucifixion? It seems while Jesus was on the cross bearing sin, He wouldn’t be technically worthy. Or was John in the future, and at the time John was weeping Jesus was in transit to the Father and was not found at that particular moment.

Is God Mad At My Friend?

Q.  There is a believer I know who will behave with great respect for God’s word and direction most of the time.  He’s prayed for remarkable things and has seen astounding works of the Lord in his own, and others’ lives, but once in a great while he will go off into willful sin, without any excuse.  He knows Jesus is the son of God, and he knows when he asks for forgiveness he receives it.  After 30 years of doing this, he thinks sinning and then asking for forgiveness and then just repeating the process, is making a mockery of the Lord’s work.  Now he thinks God is so mad at him he is losing the will to live.  Could you offer insight?

How Can We Tell If A Child Is Saved?

Q.  I have a question about a person who gets saved at a very young age and then when much older questions if it was true salvation. As a child there was not much change and as a teenager did not grow in the Lord. There was no spiritual growth etc. I guess my question is how can you tell if a young child is really saved? Many adults today, I believe question if they where really saved as a child.

More On Taking The Mark Of The Beast

Q.  Do you think taking the mark of the beast involves something far more sinister than just a means of controlling buying and selling, perhaps the changing of your DNA and your very soul belonging to Satan?

Disproving The Bible?

Q.   I just watched a TV series that tried to link historical records and archaeology findings to the old testament’s first five books.  They interviewed prominent scholars from well known Universities.  Their conclusions are deeply troubling for me. The program tried to prove that the Bible has little factual history and many of its accounts are nothing more than folktales and myths. How can we Christians rebuke these outrageous theories?
