Q. Am I wrong in believing 1 Cor. 6? I am so confused! My understanding is this causes them to not be saved. Gay people are saying on TV they are Christians, but this scripture tells me they are not saved because John 3:16 tells me they have to believe in Christ, I believe that means His teachings as well as all scripture. I know we are all sinners,but homosexuals appear to me to be shaking their fist at God and saying I will do as I please and still enter heaven. How can this be? I am one very upset person!
Q. You’ve said that Satan didn’t know God planned on Jesus being put to death for our sins or he would have done everything in his power to stop it. Isaiah 53 is a prophecy of Jesus’s payment for our sins, so how is it possible that Satan didn’t know God’s plan of redemption prior to the Crucifixion? Didn’t he read the Bible?
Q. Not even the Church is making much much protest, it seems that we, as a nation are just accepting it, why? Rhetorical question I know, but I would like your thoughts on it. Are we, I, the Laodicean church? It scares me to my core and all I know to do is keep praying, listening, hoping. I think that court decision may have been the tipping point for America and things will go down hill rapidly. I am comforted by the Lords message to the church of Philadelphia, I have considered myself to be of that church for a long time. I am almost 80 years old and love my Lord Jesus with all my heart and am grateful to Him beyond words.
Q. Over this past year I’ve noticed many changes in my local church. I’ve seen decisions made by the Pastor alone that have both concerned and forced me to take a close look at the way things are changing. Most of these issues do not pertain to the actual preaching of God’s Word but have caused me to have a deep concern for keeping this Pastor as my local Shepard. I believe from scriptures, that the biblical foundation of the church is being compromised and I’m considering leaving this congregation over it. Am I right in considering leaving for these reasons?
Q. Who were the many holy people in Matthew 27:52? Are these the Old testament saints, like David, Daniel, Moses, Abraham, Jacob, etc? Are the rest of the Old testament characters in Heaven also? Was Paradise taken out of Sheol and moved to Heaven at this event?
Q. I like telling my (mainly christian ) friends good jokes and observing them laugh. I don’t tell jokes that are obscene. Do good , clean jokes fall into the realm of jesting in Ephesians 5:4.
Q. I have a dear friend who is an Orthodox Jew. My attempts to witness just bounce off those inch-thick scales on his stubborn eyes. He’s quite intellectual and a big reader, so I’d like to find a good, thought-provoking book on Jesus/the gospel to send him. Anything come to mind?
Q. Will there be commerce in the millennium? I am very blessed to have found your site, and I pray that you continue to be humbled and surrendered to the Fathers will.
Q. Can you tell me Barabbas first name? I want to make sure what I read was correct teaching!
Q. In your recent Parable of the Unmerciful Servant post I was wondering what the jail symbolized in the parable? You mentioned that you believe the jailer is Satan.
