Seeing Ourselves As Hell Deserving

Q.  Looking at different articles on the internet, they say that we have to see ourselves as hell deserving before we can get saved. What is your view on this? I’m not denying that sin leads to death or anything, just wondering whether something like this would be an obstacle for salvation?

Is It Conviction Or Guilt?

Q. I have a quick question.  How do we know if it is the Holy Spirit convicting us when we sin, or if it is Satan working on us to make us feel guilty and draw us away from God?

Continuing To Sin

Q.  Re: 1 John 3:6-10.  The Bible speaks clearly here that if a person continues to sin after having obviously made a genuine profession of faith and demonstrated it for years and who is deeply spiritual, that he is lost. How can that be since the person’s prior walk demonstrated very clearly that he was saved.  In fact in spite of sexual immorality the person continues to preach the clear gospel. But since he keeps on sinning this passage says he has never known Christ and the man is positive that he has known him.

Angry With God For 40 Years

Q. My sister lost a baby girl through crib death over forty years ago, and still the pain persists. She has often asked me why God took her daughter.

Who Are They Bearing Witness To?

Q.  Re:  Romans 8:16 which says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God”.  What exactly is this “bearing witness” with our spirits?  Can you more clearly define it?

Doubting My Salvation

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.

OSAS And Galatians 5:16-21

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?

Interpreting John 16:8-11

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?
