Could you clarify for me the difference between the Roman Centurion who asks Jesus once to heal his servant , and why we are told to pray unceasingly as the widow petitioned the judge ? I believe that I only need to ask God once for something , then I can leave the matter with him . Am I taking the easy way out ?
I’ve been reading news stories about small Christian business owners who have refused to sell their product to a Gay couple who are planning a wedding. Such products could be providing the flowers, baking the cake or taking the pictures during the ceremony/celebration. Is there a Bible verse that would clear up how Christians should respond in this situation? These business owners are being sued and seem to be losing their court cases so it’s also a matter of being put out of business if you refuse a service to a gay couple. Could you give me your perspective on how the Christian should respond if put in such a situation?
I read an article this morning about a new book on the Temple location. I have been studying the temple Mount and other prophetic things mentioned in the Bible. However I am not even close to have the knowledge of this man’s research. The question I have is this; Has this guy discovered something others have missed?
I totally agree with the answer you gave re: Christian Businesses and Homosexuals. I have a related question: If someone works for a government office issuing marriage licenses, would that person be sinning when issuing a marriage license and/or performing a marriage ceremony for a same sex couple? I just don’t see how a true Christian can put aside God’s word and carry on “business as usual.”
I was surprised by the answer you gave regarding the florist. I’m a little confused. If a same sex couple wanted you to perform their wedding ceremony, would you? If a heterosexual couple came to you with the same request yet you knew one of them was a habitual liar, would you perform the ceremony? I understand that there really aren’t degrees of sin. But it just seems wrong to me to help someone celebrate their sin, which is what anyone who offers a service for the wedding, or attends a wedding is doing.
I want to thank you for this site and for your wisdom. I deal a lot with the final expense market. I find it very interesting the percentage of people that opt for cremation vs. traditional burial. Today I visited with a lady who wanted to research in her Bible what was the right way. What does scripture say about this issue?
Does mankind have true free will to make a conscious choice to become a born again Christian, to believe In Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, and that Christ came to this world and suffered and died on the cross to save us from our sins and to seek salvation? Or, does God solely choose the elect via His grace to be saved?
In one of your articles you mentioned Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. I was wondering in your opinion what do you think will happen first? I wanted to also know when will the peace that the Apostle Paul spoke of in I Thessalonians 5:3 come about? What event will bring this on?
I was brought up with Roman Catholic faith but started going to a Baptist church and became born again. At the same time (of being born again) I met a guy – a Catholic & very much into his faith. We are very much in love and want to get married but have a serious obstacle which is faith & ways of worship.
I don’t know what to do! I’ve been praying about it & doing a lot of research, sharing it with him to show him why I believe what I do, but so far it’s all pointless! I need your prayers (for I know you are a brother in Christ) as well as encouragement or tips on the major issues of difference between the 2 sects. To tell you the truth I feel sick and tired of all the major sects and the way Christ has been divided.
