Stewards Of The Earth

Published: November 2, 2021
Q

I know that we are to take care of the earth and animals and not abuse them, but is there anything written specifically that says that? Also, does taking care of the earth and animals override all that man tries to do as far as living here is concerned?

 


Where’s The Love?

Published: November 2, 2021
Q

I’ve been wondering about the love of Jesus. Why does His love seem absent from so many who call themselves believers? Is the answer found in Matthew 24, specifically verse 12, or was Jesus speaking only about Daniel’s 70th week? Or is it more answered by 1 John 4:8? In such a religious nation and with so little love visible, how do we find the true brethren who love Jesus?


Noah, Daniel, And Job

Q

I am studying Ezekiel and he mentions the curious combination of Noah, Daniel, and Job. What is the purpose of this combination? Thanks again for your continued help in my studies.


Is 2017 A Jubilee Year?

Q

I’ve been told that 2017 is the next Jubilee year and that an ancient rabbinical prophecy says the Millennial Kingdom will begin at that time. What’s your opinion?


Disciples In Debt?

Published: November 1, 2021
Q

Is there anything in Scripture with regards to being a disciple and being in debt? With debt being a master of sorts, is it possible that Jesus would “give the go ahead” for someone to be a disciple while in debt? I know it’s been done and is still being done but is it right?


Walking In The Spirit

Published: November 1, 2021
Q

I absolutely know that much of the time I’m not walking in the Spirit because of all the things I either do or say or the way I act. This is not how I want it to be but it seems I do all these things whether I want it this way or not. Does God the Father not see me as righteous when I’m not walking according to the Spirit? I know He must be displeased and this kills me inside that He is feeling this way about me. I want so much to be like Jesus and then I’m not again and I get so discouraged. What am I to do?


Is It Hard To Be Saved?

Published: October 29, 2021
Q

I can’t get this concept of beings saved. It’s hard for me, as I have had a hard life. I have prayed when in Juvenile, I go to a catholic church with my friend ( I am not catholic, but baptist and Jewish by race.) My friend and I talk constantly about Jesus. He bugs me about not being saved, but it doesn’t bother me. Don’t get me wrong, I want to be saved. But I don’t have the “feeling” inside me. What do you suggest for me?


What Is The Judgment All Mankind Will Face At The End?

Q

I just have a short question. If we are saved totally by grace, what is the judgment all mankind will face at the end? Thank for your inspiration. I look forward to coming to this site every single day.


My Job Is Getting Me Down

Published: October 29, 2021
Q

My job of ‘Religious Education teacher’, allows me to speak freely (ish) about Jesus – along with other world religions – to students that might not ordinarily hear about him. In the past I’ve thought of this as a blessing. Of late though, my job is becoming increasingly stressful with the demands and pressures applied by senior management. I have difficulty connecting at home and my spare time is taken up with extra work to meet deadlines; it feels like being on a treadmill that you can’t get off.

1 Corinthians 10:33 says we should not seek our own good, but the good of many so they can be saved. This suggests we should carry on regardless of our own feelings for the greater good. However, although I am telling people about Jesus in my lessons which I enjoy, my job interferes with my daily walk because it consumes my thoughts – both at work and at home to the point where my health and my relationship with Jesus are both suffering. What should I do?


Christians, ISIS, And Prosperity

Published: October 28, 2021
Q

I have been wondering how the idea of turning the other cheek would apply to Christians in Iraq, Syria, etc., and the Islamic State. Maybe the difference is that IS wants to kill them. I believe the Bible should apply the same to all Christians everywhere and that is why preaching prosperity doesn’t work. Can you shed some light on this?
