A Place Reserved For One

Several years ago a beloved pastor, who has since gone home to be with the Lord, and a few of us were having a discussion about the anti-Christ when he told us that Judas, after he betrayed Jesus, hanged himself and “went to a place reserved for one.” We were conjecturing what that could have meant.

The Declining Church

Q. Over the last few years, I’ve become increasingly sensitive to deviations from the True Gospel Message. For reasons I don’t quite fully understand, our family has found it quite difficult to find a local congregation that hasn’t been affected by the emerging church, or seeker-friendly trends that promote a social gospel. As the head of our household, I am very concerned about the spiritual welfare of my family.  It almost seems to me as though the true Church is being driven underground. From your experience, is this becoming more normal as we approach the end of this age?

Sacrifice Or Exchange?

Q. I praise God I have you to go to when I lack wisdom. You’ve been a great help. I was reading one of your writings that explained our salvation is based on what we believe, not how we behave, and that leading a life of sacrifice was man’s idea, not God’s.  If that’s the case what does it mean to deny ourselves and take up our Cross and follow Him, and also Romans 12:1, which says to offer ourselves as living sacrifices. What am I missing here? Continue reading…

Does God Heal People Today?

Q. I take your commentary (on healing) to mean that you believe that God/Jesus heals people today on earth. Do you believe that God will heal you if you pray and are anointed with oil etc? Continue reading…

The Rise And Fall Of The West

Q. I firmly believe that the world view of an individual is based on his spiritual condition and how important the Word of God is in his life. Because of this belief, I have encountered an argument that I have no answer on. Continue reading…

Different Punishments, Different Rewards

Q. I was reading your article “Case for Eternal Punishment” and found it very interesting. Though when you get down to the brass tacks of it all we as believers will really not know what Eternal Punishment will be like. I for one cannot even imagine how terrible it would be to be separated from my LORD and my GOD. Continue reading…

Was Mary Sinless?

Q. I was having a talk with my pastor about the belief that Mary was sinless, a view as you know held by Catholics as declared by the ineffable God decree of 1854 and the idea of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Continue reading…

The Olivet Discourse … Luke’s Version. Follow Up

Q. You stated “As in Matthew’s account, the fig tree parable is not meant to signify Israel, but the speed with which these events would unfold once they began.” Everyone I have read says the fig tree there does represent Israel and that is why they look at the restoration of Israel in 1948 as defining the generation being talked about. In the readings on your site I have not seen anything to refute this except this one time. Please clarify. Continue reading…

Are We In The Tribulation?

Q. I think we may have already entered the 7 year peace tribulation. I have been reading (a website) which demonstrates some astounding evidence that Israel have already signed the 7 year peace treaty in Jan 2007, and therefore we are already in the 7 yr tribulation. There is also some great videos on Youtube by (another website). Sounds far-fetched but there is some huge evidence there. I would really appreciate your views. If it is true its really important that Christians are made aware as we don’t have much time. Would you please review this evidence and tell me why it couldn’t possibly be true? Continue reading…

I Converted, My Husband Didn’t

Q. Five years ago I left the Mormon faith because I came to receive Christ as my Saviour. I was and still am married to a Mormon man. In my heart I feel that I should follow scripture and stay with the unbeliever I am married to, since divorce is not approved by God. But scripture also says to be not yoked with unbelievers.
