Q. I would like to hear your thoughts on Genesis 3:22. What does God mean in this verse? How did we become like “Them”, and what does it mean to know good and evil? Also, please explain the concept of man eating from the Garden’s Tree of Life and living forever after sinning? Did this mean that Adam would have circumvented the Redemptive Plan?
Q. There is something that always bothers me whenever it comes up in a discussion, and that’s Paul`s “thorn in the flesh”. Paul called his thorn in the flesh “a Messenger from Satan”. Could this messenger have been the slave girl from Acts 16:16? Thanks for your insight.
Q. I have asked The Lord everyday to come into my heart and forgive me me of all my sins, but I’m a drunk. I cry out and ask for his forgiveness as my guilt has a tight grip on me but can’t stop drinking. I let him down all the time I am so scared that He will leave me like this. Jesus help me please.
Q. A friend, referring to Deut.28:63, said that the God she knows would not rejoice over anyone to destroy and bring them to nothing. I said that she was forgetting that God’s ways are not our ways and we can’t figure His ways out with our feeble minds. Can you give me a better answer for her? Continue reading…
Q. In the context of OSAS theory I would like to ask you why Ananias and Sapphira, who were husband and wife, instantly died while speaking lies before the disciples. Were not they within the fold of first century believers? Then, why they were not saved even after speaking lies?
Q. I’ve heard that argument that “lust” only refers to sexual desire directed towards another person. So masturbation is okay as long as you’re not having lustful thoughts about someone you know or a real person. What do you think of this argument?
Q. What if the nation of Israel had accepted Jesus as the Messiah when He came the first time? Would the Roman Government have had cause to crucify Him? Would the church age have been bypassed? And would the world have moved into the one thousand year kingdom reign?
Q. I have a question that I hope you can help me with. It concerns Matthew 27 :3-4.
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? see thou to that.”
Judas admitted he sinned and repented. Is there a chance he may be saved and in heaven?
Q. Thank you for your website. It is truly a blessing. A question on something I have always wondered. Since God is all knowing, past, present, future, the alpha and omega – this means he already knew Satan would fall from heaven , challenge his deity, bring evil upon mankind, etc. Why would God allow this to happen to all of his creation including us humans?
Q. Our Christian group has been discussing sin. Some say we are born with a sin nature and become sinners when we sin. Others say we are born sinners because we have a sin nature. What say you?
