I have some friends who believe in conditional salvation. I firmly believe it’s impossible for us not to sin and therefore our salvation has to be unconditional. One of my friends sent me to a website that supports conditional salvation. Most of its claims are easily refuted, but there is one article regarding the seal of the Holy Spirit that I’m having trouble with. It said the seal can be broken. Can you please help me with this?
This evening a friend of mine related what a pastor and his wife said to them over dinner. He told them that, as Christians, they need to start preparing for the worst as things are going to get real bad, real fast after the election. He said believers should store up food and hoard what they have, and pull all their money out of the bank and hide it. This is nothing less than frightening. How does he know this? Is he right–should we all be doing this?

I’ve read some articles on Christian websites saying Christians should not vote at all this time because neither candidate truly represents our values. But others are just as adamant in saying we should vote for the candidate who is most representative of our values. It’s so confusing. What do you think?
My question concerns worshiping God. I understand that the angels worship and adore God above anything else they do and I believe we will do the same when we are with Him and I look forward to that time with all my being. But now I feel inadequate to give Him the worship He deserves. Do you have some teachings on worship that would teach me how to worship God with all my heart?
I was just wondering if you could give me some advice about longing for Christ’s return. If I were to truly tell you how I feel, I would say that I just don’t feel any genuine longing for the return of Christ. I’m not saying I don’t want it to happen, it would be the best thing in the world, I just don’t have a general sense of everyday longing for His return and awaiting my King. Would you mind giving me advice on how to long for His return?
What can you say about Isaiah 5:22 which says “Destruction is certain for those who are heroes when it comes to drinking, who boast about all the liquor they can hold.” Concerning that, is alcohol forbidden?
In another Q&A you stated, ” The confusion comes from the fact that Genesis 1 is God’s account of the Creation and Chapter 2 is Adam’s account based on what God had told him. How do you know that Chapter 2 is Adam’s account?
