Q. I was brought up to believe that there are two kinds of wine in the Bible. One that is alcoholic and one that is not. Talking to a friend recently, he believes that drinking wine is not a sin if you’re not using it to get drunk. So the question is: Is alcohol a sin? Could you provide me with verses that tell us that there are 2 different forms of wine in the Bible?
Q. Re: Attacks Of Doubt. This question and your answer was very timely and helped me a great deal since I struggle with this as well. However, as is often the case, your answer leads me to explore another question. I have been wondering about Satan’s ability to cause these doubts. Can Satan or his fallen angels actually impress thoughts on our minds? How do they cause these doubts to enter our thoughts? Satan I know is not omnipresent so therefore cannot be everywhere at once, so he must rely on his fallen angels.
Q. My question concerns fasting. I read somewhere – can’t remember where, though – that we should not just pick a day and fast. That we need to feel led to do so concerning something specific, ie. healing or deliverance for someone, or for the answer to a serious problem. How do you feel about fasting and how do know that is what God wants you to do?
Q. Some of my believing friends are saying the Kingdom of God hasn’t come to them yet but I’m saying when you repent and accept Jesus Christ you’ve entered the Kingdom. I admit that the fullness of God hasn’t dwelt in men yet but I believe that because I’m striving to live according to the instructions of His Word from day to day, then I’m living the Kingdom life right now. Please comment on the above. Continue reading…
Q. Since there is no country resembling America in the end-times prophecies, and it looks as though our current administration is going to be the tool that takes us out of the international picture, should we fight our government’s systematic destruction of the Constitution? Would it be considered idol worship to make an effort to defend the traditional American way of life if God’s Word seems to indicate such an effort would be futile?
Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created. He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away.
Q. How much should we be standing up as Christians today and are we going to be held accountable?
Q. Does Ezekiel 33:7-9 mean we are to speak up when we see wicked things and warn or hold accountable the person involved in such things, or we will answer for their death? So if we remain silent, this is a sin?
Q. My husband and I differ on tithing. He gladly gives to the church and if there is any special need or project he will give, but he does not believe that we have to give the 10% all the time. On the other hand I do, and since I’m the one that writes the check I tithe the 10%, but I base it on my earnings and not his. I have read that this is not acceptable to God and my tithe is not honored because I am going behind his back to do it. What do you think is right?
Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.
