Q. How does your position on Sunday worship follow the words by Jesus in Matt 5: 17-19? “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets; I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
Q. Regarding the Straight Gate. Is it possible that the merciful and omnipotent God will allow a person to want to believe and be saved; pray with the intent to believe and be saved, want to repent and be forgiven, ask for faith to believe and be saved, but still fail to find that gate?
Q. The bible tells us that 1/3 of the angels got kicked out of heaven. I have heard that there are 7 types of angels, thus the 7 spirits of god. Can you tell me out of the 7 types of angels which type fell from heaven or was it a combination of all 7 types ?
Q. I enjoy your website and appreciate your knowledge of God’s word. My question concerns the true born again experience. Most church messages I’ve heard call people to the altar to confess Jesus as their Savior, but never truly prepare the convert for the broken and contrite surrender necessary for the completion of their salvation. Do you agree that our Western Christian culture has watered down the message, leaving many who believe that they are born again deceived?
Q. I was reading Exodus 3 where Moses was confronted with the burning bush. It says that an angel of the Lord appeared to him. My question is about the angel of the Lord that has appeared multiple times in the Bible. Do you know if this angel of the Lord is a separate being from God himself? Or is this just a means of physically appearing to man?
Q. I’ve read several of your articles that address “works based faith” and 100% agree with all of them. But I know a believer who really does believe in Jesus and what He did at the Cross, yet still thinks he “has to do more” to make himself “worthy”. When we talk about it He says things like, ” A true saved soul, child of God, will do His will no matter what and work harder every day to prove himself worthy to our Lord and Savior” and “I do believe that I can show God more & more every day that I am worthy of His love.”
Q. In reading your posts on Daniel chapter 9 about the 483 years till Jesus’ Crucifixion. How did the Persian Priests know what year to look for the star as the sign of Jesus birth?
Q. Re: ‘Are you sure about OSAS?‘ As Eve was being tempted by Satan into eating the fruit, he was getting her to think about how it was good for food, pleasant to the eyes, would make one wise. She was thinking about all these things BEFORE she ate of it. If she had walked away, or if Adam had stopped her, she would not have eaten of the fruit. And that’s what God had forbidden them: ‘but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat.’ Gen 2:16. It wasn’t forbidden to think about it, but to do it. I accept that Jesus was teaching about changing our hearts when He spoke against even anger. Yet, anger is justifiable many times. Jesus was angry at the Pharisees but He didn’t kill any of them.
Q. I have a nagging feeling all the time about my salvation. I read that salvation is from faith in Jesus Christ alone not works. But I get conflicting answers when I read things people say on different Bible sites. For example, some say when you’re saved you should spread the gospel to everyone you meet. I sometimes talk to people about what I believe but not everyone I meet. I am afraid people will think I am weird and won’t like me. Is that normal to a believer? And if I don’t share the gospel am I still saved?
Q. I was reading this morning and in John 5:41 it says “I do not receive glory from people.” I think I understand the context of why He was saying this but it raised the question to me, what is Glory? I hear so many people saying “Give glory to God” or “Glory be to Jesus” And the Bible is filled with the word “glory” but what is it from a Spiritual and Scriptural definition?
