Denying God

Q. My friend has accused me, and I admit I’m guilty as charged, of believing in the Hebrew God, Jesus and the Bible without considering every possible alternative god, theory, or ancient writing. He seems to think there any many Christian-like writings that preceded the Bible and therefore detract from its uniqueness.

I’ve tried to sum it all up for him with a bible based world view, and the need to be born again and sealed with the Holy spirit to be led to all truth but he thinks its a intellectual cop out. I don’t want to give up on him, but it may have to come to that point as everything is “yes, but …” for him. The one final thing I’m looking to provide for him is the uniqueness of Jesus. What He did that no one else or no other created entity or “god” could have done.

Do Jewish People Go To Heaven When They Die?

Questions About No One Knows The Day Or The Hour

Q. Re: No One Knows The Day Or The Hour I have a couple of questions. I always thought that the tribulation starts with the signing of the peace treaty the anti-christ makes with Israel. Am I wrong? Second, are you saying the Church will be here for the first 3 1/2 years but be gone the last 3 1/2 years? I always thought we would be out of here for the entire 7 years.

Careless Words

Q. Last night in our Bible study, we talked about judgment which I have no problems with at all. In regard to it, when we are faithful to confess our sins to God (say on a daily basis) for things we know are wrong such as envy, inappropriate words, hurtful actions, etc, will we be judged on them again when we see the Lord in the future? Since the Bible says we will be judged by every word or action, does this imply we are forgiven now but will be judged later or will God remove our transgressions as far as East is from West?

According To His Purpose

Q. Romans 8:28 tells us God is working everything together for the good of those who love him and “are called according to His purpose” What does “his purpose” mean? Do all things work for the good only for those for whom God has a special purpose; a special task?
