Q. I used to belong to (another religion), and most of my family still does. I have tried to teach them the truth but it usually ends up just making them mad. Or they just think I’ve turned into a “religious fanatic”. Can one be saved and still pray to someone other than God and Jesus? I don’t see how, as that seems to be idolatry. They also still believe in works, not just grace. What is your advice on how best to convert them?
Q. In Matthew 23:39 and Luke 13:35 Jesus told the Pharisees that He would not return until He heard them say, ” Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.” This statement appears to be a quote from Psalm 118. I find this very interesting and wanted your thoughts.
Q. I have a question about Christians who claimed to be saved by faith, but then say that other things are required. I’m talking about things like signs of repentance, proof of good works, etc. If they add things, any things, does that mean they don’t really believe they’re saved by Faith alone even though they say they do? Are they saved at all?
Q. I have a friend who has grown up Catholic but has gone to other churches to study the bible. She believes that on All Souls Day, we should pray for our loved ones who have passed on. Is there any biblical evidence for this? When we pass on, don’t our souls go either to heaven or hell? Thank you for your help.
Q. Greetings in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I am sending this mail because of a Christian book I saw titled ‘The Seven Spirits of God’. I do not understand the meaning of the term “seven spirits of God.” I would be glad if you could explain it for me.
Q. Why do you suppose Moses spent 40 years in Midian? What did he accomplish there?
Q. Could you please comment on the article that’s been making the rounds about Isaac Newtons prophecy of Sept. 23, 2015?
If one asks for forgiveness just before they take their life wouldn’t they be forgiven?
Q. I have a question concerning willful sin. I confessed Christ as my savior and believe in him for my salvation but sometimes my flesh gets the better of me and I sin; and I know it’s a sin while I’m doing it. Afterwards I feel absolutely terrible about it and confess it to The Lord and ask for forgiveness. Are we condemned if we willfully sin? I feel condemnation and I find myself asking for forgiveness multiple times for it because I truly am sorry. I want salvation so bad and sometimes I feel like he counts the willful sin against me and I won’t be forgiven.
Q. Romans 8:14 says we are given the spirit of adoption but in verse 23, it says we are waiting for the adoption, the redemption of the body. Many people tell me because of this, being born again is a process and not a one time thing that happens at conversion. I always thought we are adopted when we were justified, not at glorification. What does the Bible say on this matter?
