Q. I was not raised a Christian and have only recently began seeking God’s truth. I believe in God and am trying to understand Christianity. It is my understanding that Jesus’ death washed away original sin introduced by Adam and Eve. With this in mind, could someone be immortal if they lived a truly sinless life? My idea comes from the quote “for the wages of sin is death”. Does this mean that death can be avoided by a truly sinless individual? I understand that this seems impossible, but is interesting from a theoretical perspective. Does it also follow that Jesus could have been immortal had he not taken our sins for us?
In response to ‘I’m a missionary in my own church’ – if beleivers are to concentrate on the three areas you mention within their own chuch, how do you suggest we reach the lost? I would appreciate your thoughts on this. God Bless
I never feel worthy, although I would die rather than deny Christ. I know my sins are forgiven, there are just so many good people, better Christians than I am, how can I live up to all this? And what about the commandment to keep the Sabbath day holy?
Baptism: I have been led to believe that nearly all, if not all, of the translators transliterate the Greek rather than translate it. If so, what should scripture say if the Greek is translated correctly?
I’m wondering what you have to say about Catholics “praying” to Mary or other saints. I understand that the first commandment tells us to have no other gods, but Catholics seem to believe they’re not praying to Mary or the other saints, but somehow praying to God through them.
I have a question concerning what is meant by the phrase “spiritual warfare”? Are the angels still loyal to God engaged in actual combat with the ones who fell with Satan?
My question is: What is your thought about people who are christians but don’t attend church on a regular basis?
I am very surprised at your reply to “Relationship Problems” in Ask a Bible Teacher. As I understand the letter, this woman is not only in an unequally yoked relationship but she is living a sinful lifestyle by living with this man outside of marriage.
I have a serious problem in my life and I am unsure what to do about it. I am currently living with a man (we are not married). He doesn’t see what is happening in the world the way I do and he seems to do everything he can to prove me wrong about the End of Days approaching. I love this man but I don’t really want to marry him with the way his belief system is.
Could you provide a little background information on yourself?
