My question is, believing that Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins ( I understand that to be the punishment from our sins – correct me if I’m wrong) and that as we accept Him we are new creatures in Christ – then why do we still have this sin nature?
If we cannot achieve a perfect life in this earth no matter how hard we try, What is the point of getting
closer to perfect than the one still with imperfection? Both are basically imperfect!
Recently I heard someone say that you must receive Jesus Christ into your heart and repent of your sins in order to be saved. Yet there are many verses in the Bible where it tells us to just believe. Please share some of you expert knowledge on this.
How would you cope with an ailing friendship, when you are unsure of whether you should hold on? Letting go seems like you are not trying to hold on hard enough, but holding on might make things worse.
I am very puzzled and troubled by 1 Corinthians 5:5. To me, this seems to contradict eternal security because it seems to state that if this man does not repent, his spirit would not be saved. Is this how you read this verse? Have you done any research on this verse?
I know that while you do not believe Israel is the fig tree in mentioned (in Matt. 24), you do believe that the generation that sees the “nationhood” of Israel will be likely to witness the 2nd coming, but where is the scriptural proof that Israel becoming a nation was the starting point of “the signs” based on Matthew 24?
After we believe in Jesus Christ, we know that we are forgiven of our sins. Yet we sin all the time. We know God does not like us to have a sinful lifestyle and will banish sinful people to hell. So how do we know if we have a sinful lifestyle if we sin everyday?
We have been watching with great interest the developments in the Mid East this past week in connection with Israeli intrusion into Syrian airspace. Do you think this intrusion might lead to war?
In Matthew 26:29, Jesus said “But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom”. Can you explain “this cup” and when and where will he drink it new? What or where is His Father’s Kingdom? When or what is the Kingdom of God?
In response to what you wrote in ‘Satan in our minds’, I was wondering how Satan has access to our thoughts and deeds if he isn’t omniscient or omnipresent.
