Ignoring Family And Friends

I have a Christian friend who says that we are not to have anything to do with friends or family who are not believers. He said we are to ignore them. I know we are to leave family and everything and follow Christ, but are we suppose to ignore and have nothing to do with them?

Post Rapture Believers

Someone has told me that the pre-trib rapture can be disproved with 1 Thessalonians 4:15, specifically the idea that those who are alive at the time of the Lord’s return will not precede those “who have fallen asleep in Jesus”. If believers die during the Tribulation doesn’t that mean that we would have preceded them?

Daniel 2 And The EU

I showed a friend your article Seven Major Prophetic Signs Of The Second Coming, but he’s not convinced the part about the statues legs referring to the current day EU (Daniel 2:36-45). How do we know for sure that the statue passage in Daniel is referring to the EU when talking about the legs?

Three Temples Or Four?

I am struggling with the 3rd temple predictions. When I read your articles it all seems clear in my mind, but when I check against other peoples opinions I get jumbled again. One theory I read stated that there could be a fourth temple. What am I missing, or just not grasping?

Exodus 6:6-7 And The New Testament Cups

In Matt. 20:22-23 Jesus asked if James and John could drink the cup that He was to drink. In 1 Cor. 10:16 Paul referred to participation in the Lord’s death as our cup of blessing, and in verse 21 accused the Corinthians of trying to drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. How does this tie to Exodus 6:6-7?

Was Jesus A Carpenter?

My husband told me today that he was watching some rerun of a news show on the internet and a “biblical scholar” said that Jesus and Joseph weren’t necessarily carpenters. I think my husband feels that our Bible translations can’t be trusted if the original translators didn’t get it right.

Why Isn’t Everyone Saved?

Q. If we’re saved by grace alone, why do we need to believe in Christ? Doesn’t grace alone mean all people should be saved regardless of their response? Isn’t the act of believing a “work” in itself?

Also, why did Jesus leave earth after he was raised from the dead? I think if he had stayed it would have allowed more people to believe and be saved. It seems to me that the information about being saved is not clear enough for many people to understand. But perhaps that is the plan- to only save a small percentage?

Saving Pharaoh

I have just read through Genesis and the account of Joseph when he was in Egypt. Then last night a thought occurred to me. Did Pharaoh and his house become believers through the witness of Joseph?
