Who Built These Things?

Q. Are there any Bible answers on such mysterious sites on earth as the Gobekli-Tepe site in Turkey and Stonehenge and similar phenomenon? I have been asked how they exist and fit into the creation theory. The proof is there for all to see and in some cases even in this time cannot be explained on the how and why along with tools used to create some of the wonders of the world. Any information, or bible based theory even would greatly be appreciated

Did Paul Contradict Himself?

Q. In Romans 7 and 8 Paul seems to contradict himself. I know that isn’t the case at all, but would like your insight. In Romans 7:14 he talks about himself being carnal and then in 8 I believe its vs 6 he talks about being carnal is death. Can you please explain? And also in Romans 8:1 in the kjv he says there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus who live after the spirit and not after the flesh. Can you please explain? And why do the other versions only say “for there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ” and they don’t finish the verse the way the kjv does?

A Grateful Heart?

Q. I’ve been thinking about the statements you wrote like, “If what we say we believe doesn’t result in action, it’s doubtful that we really believe it. True faith will manifest itself in Spirit led work” and, “Faith brings salvation, which brings gratitude, which brings a desire to express our gratitude through acts of service.”

I am one of those Christians who have had doubts about my own salvation ever since I asked the Lord to save me. Often I wonder if I have truly believed he died for all my sins. If not, I really want to believe. It’s been already 3 years since I asked the Lord to save me and there’s has been absolutely no gratitude from my heart because of doubt. And because of my doubts, there hasn’t been any expression of my gratitude in the form of acts of kindness toward others. Was I even saved from the start?

Are The Jews In The Promised Land Forever?

Q. I was speaking with a friend and fellow believer about the signs that the end times are upon us. When I mentioned that the holy land and Jerusalem were back in Jewish hands as one of the signs, he wondered out loud if there could be another dispersal of the Jews and then another regathering in the future. We agreed that it was highly improbable but I wanted to ask you if there is prophetic Scripture which tells us that once the holy land is re-occupied by God’s people, they are there to stay.

Two Resurrections

Q. In Matthew 27:52-54 we see a resurrection of saints, either OT or those saved during Jesus earthly ministry who passed away. Am I correct in teaching that the first resurrection is a kind of resurrection (resurrection unto, or of life) and not just the number order, although it is that as well, and that there are phases to it?

Who Are The Elect In Matt. 24?

Q. I have been thinking a lot about Matthew 24:24 ” For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Who are the “elect” and if it is us as followers of Christ does he mean that we will not be here for the deception by saying “if possible”.

Is My Husband Saved?

Q. My husband went to the altar and asked for salvation about 11 years ago. He told me he was born again. He does not read God’s Word, refuses to listen to any of the Christian shows I watch, and will not talk or let me talk about anything religious.

I have to drag him to church where he sits and sighs about being pulled away from his day. He thinks I am crazy for believing in the Rapture and thinks that the world will recover from all that is happening and it will go on just as it always has. I have prayed daily for him to draw closer to God as I feel time is very short. Is he saved and will he be raptured? If not, how should I go about convincing him that he needs to wake up and see that God is real and our time on earth is short?
