Q. I recently got into a very bad argument with someone who told me that they no longer consciously sin which threw me off. I brought up 1 John 1:8, but they said that I was wrong about my use of the verse. They got upset when I brought up something they had done to me in the past and essentially called me a liar because they no longer consciously sin and wouldn’t have done that. Is it really possible to no longer consciously sin?
Q. I believe in the pretrib rapture but I was wondering, would it be possible that if the rapture is not pretrib, and fundamental believers are disappointed by being in the trib, that they will apostasize and that is the great falling away? I hope I am being just a worry wort and too sensitive to the bad things that are happening. Is this even a valid theory? has anyone else raised this question?
Q. Re: Inspiration of Scripture. We often hear people claiming this confidently but is there really a verse that really claims that the entire Bible is the word of God? 2 Tim. 3: 16 speaks along those lines but to me it refers more to Old Testament scriptures rather than all other scriptures, because much 0f the New Testament hadn’t been written yet. What are your views on this?
Q. Can you practice the beliefs of the Native Americans and still be a Christian?
Q. I have always thought the anti-Christ’s war against the saints in Daniel’s 70th Week would concern gentiles that come to know Christ after the rapture. But could that scripture also apply to Jews that come to know Christ after the rapture? Will Jews also be called ‘saints’ if they accept Christ after the rapture or is this a term reserved for Gentile believers? Or reserved for the church only? If it’s reserved for the church only that means a pre-trib rapture is not possible as the A/C will be battling the church ‘saints’.
Q. Persecution of Christians seems to be happening more and more. Do you think we will experience persecution (bodily harm) and death in America as is true in China, India, Iran, and various places in the middle East before the Rapture? A number of prophecy people think we should prepare for serious suffering and even death by beheading. Would you please tell us your thoughts about persecution?
Q. According to Hebrews 9, Jesus ministry was part of the Old Testament until His death on the cross. So in your opinion where does the New Testament begin?
Q. Realizing that there may be husbands or wives left behind that did not accept Christ before the Rapture, does that mean if one spouse accepts Christ and is raptured and the mate accepts Him in the Trib, that they will not be together in the Millennium because the mate cannot go to the New Jerusalem? If so, there are surely going to be big regrets in the Trib when they realize they missed it.
Q. I know that TuB’Av is coming up. Do you know what the holiday is and the significance it serves?
