Q. I am a born again believer. I know in my heart whom I belong to. My problem is my husband and I drink. I feel God want me to quit. I hate my sin. I have begged God to take this away. I have even heard that a lot of people who accept Jesus as their savior, that their bad habits just go away. Why won’t God take this away from me? I also battle whether I am a truly saved since I repeatedly continue to drink. If I am completely still, I know who I belong to, but I just don’t understand this battle.
Q. There is a TV preacher who teaches that believers who practice the acts of the sinful nature will not inherit the Kingdom based on Galatians 5:16-21. Does that mean any believer who does those things will have his or her salvation revoked? Doesn’t that conflict with OSAS?
Q. John 16:8-11 says the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement. Of sin, because they believe not in me (unbelief), of righteousness because I go to my father and you see me no more and of judgement because the ruler of the world is judged. So how does this relate to believers and unbelievers?
Q. Just a question on sin from some one in my Sunday school class . If we should sin after saved [which is impossible not to] and die before we ask for forgiveness, are we still covered by the blood of Christ?
Q. Romans 6:6 says that we died with Christ, and he who has died has been freed from sin. I take that to mean that Christians can’t sin, after all we are dead and dead men can’t sin. The body of sin is done away with since we were crucified with Him. But 1 John 2:1 says, “…these things I write to you that you may not sin.” Is John saying that those that sin are not Christians?
Q. I know someone who says she has a deliverance ministry. She says that all sicknesses and diseases are from un-repented ‘sins’ in us! She believes if you repent enough (asking God to show you all the sins connected with a particular sickness/disease) and you repent that you eventually get deliverance and healed from those problems! She says that God puts and uses these diseases and sickness so we will repent and be made pure and perfect, so on the Day, we will be able to stand before The Lord! My question to you is: Does God put these sickness and diseases on us?
Q. I always thought that God was a spiritual form only but after reading one of your commentaries it stated that when God was living in the Holy of Holies the high priest would visit with him once a year and a rope would be tied around his ankles to pull him out if he displeased God to keep God from destroying him if he sinned in his presence. This indicates to me that God was in human form at this time. Is this correct?
Q. When believers choose to live sinful lifestyles (i.e. have an attitude of I do not care whether I sin or not, since I love sin and it is my lifestyle), does that mean they would reject eternal security if their intent is to live a sinful lifestyle? Or does it reveal that they are not truly saved?
Q. If a believer marries again after a divorce, is that person living in a perpetual state of sin?
