My son accepted Jesus as his Savior after a very rough life of drugs, alcohol and an absent father. I have prayed for him for years that God would rescue him. He and his wife had a miscarriage, and now he is returning to his old ways of drinking and drugs and I cannot reach him.
I was on a website you recommended and read an article on The Rich Man and Lazarus. The author says that when we die our body goes into the grave and our spirit falls into a sleep mode and won’t be awakened until the Rapture when it will be rejoined with our body.
My question, in Revelation 20:4, I understand it to mean that only the martyrs of Christ will reign with Him one-thousand years. Will all saints reign and rule with Him, or only the martyred saints from the Tribulation period?
This week, I watched a report about the Stigmata, where certain pious Catholics exhibit wounds in the palms of their hands and feet, mimicking Christ’s wounds while He was being crucified. I can’t find any scriptural evidence on this. I am skeptical of these “signs and wonders”.
Would you please explain this verse in light of the answer you gave on your site in “Ask a Bible Teacher.”
In 15:46 it mentions the rigamaroll that Joseph of Arimathea went thru in preparation for the burial of Jesus, finishing off with the statement “…and rolled a large stone in front of the sepulchre”. Question. How big was that stone?
I’ve been wondering about this for a while now – is there a difference between directly lying to someone and tricking them? There must be, because didn’t God essentially trick Satan when Jesus was crucified?
Since the only way to eternal life is through Christ, how is it possible for the Old Testament saints and adopted foreigners to be saved since they have already died?
On (another website) I saw a statement that troubled me greatly. In the never-ending debate of evolution vs. creationism, (the author) makes very good points. However, regarding the “beginning” of God he says “It is possible that the Lord may have existed for so long even He has lost track of His own beginning.” Is this really possible?
Why do Christians will still sin even after believing in God? If no Christians can live a sin free life in his lifetime on earth and the only difference may be that they sin “less” and with more guilt feeling when committing sin, then why bother?
