Q. My son has encountered a group of very godly young people who have been actively challenging him to follow God with his whole being. They teach that you must be saved only through the sacrifice of Jesus, however,they have just told him they do not believe that Jesus was God, but was a sinless man who lived a perfect life. They do not, therefore, believe in the Trinity.
Can you explain why the tribe of Dan is missing from the list of the 12 tribes of Israel in the book of Revelation?
Question: Are you saying that the purpose/audience of the OT is Israel and the purpose/audience of the NT is for the Church?
In the Old Testament, God frequently led Israel into battle, but Christ tells us to love our enemies. Is the Iraq war contrary to God’s will? Should we be loving our Muslim enemies instead of fighting them?
I’ve got a friend who I’ve been explaining Christianity to, now he’s listening and wants to know why Christianity is correct, over all the other religions. Can you help me bring it home to him? I know the Bible is backed by prophecy that’s come true, but I don’t know how to say it right!
I was talking to one of our Church elders last night, he was convinced that Queen Elizabeth 2′s roots can be traced all the way back to King David. I was in no position to argue. He said God made a promise to David that his Throne would endure forever. Could this be true?
I was wondering if you believe that something about the human reproductive system changed after the flood that rendered the nephilim incapable of interbreeding with humanity as they did in Gen. 6. Why not just continue to mate as they did prior to the flood?
About 5 years ago our Pastor took on the practice of offering Ashes during the Ash Wednesday service. I asked him about it and also asked where in scripture it says to do this and he told me it was a sign of being a repentant Christian in a round about way and that there where no scriptural references to it.
I am uncertain why God would want to have someone killed in order to let everyone else get into heaven? Why a brutal death? And where did the people from the Old Testament go when they died before Jesus came down to earth? How could they get into heaven?
I was reading through John last night and had a question about John 3 v 13. “No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven, the Son of Man.” How can that be when 2 Kings 2 vs 11 says Elijah went up to heaven?
