I know what I want in a wife, (besides looks) like a love for God, desire to raise children, and common mission. But, does the Bible say much about choosing? Where is the balance between what we want and what is best?
Is there an in-depth explanation of why the serpent would not have enticed Eve to eat of the Tree of Life instead of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? It seems to me that by eating of the Tree of Life first, it would have canceled the result of death from eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Also, if at once realizing the effect from eating of the “knowledge” tree, shouldn’t they have immediately been desperate to eat of the “life” tree to nullify the curse?
I believe in forgiveness even if an apology hasn’t been extended. How do I respond, without sounding pompous, to people who say they can forgive someone’s offense but they’ll never “forget”. I believe if we don’t let it go and forget it, we haven’t really forgiven and therefore still carry a burden of unforgiveness in our heart.
Do you ever get the feeling that born again believers should try to focus more effort on so-called believers in name only instead of trying to reach “sinners”? Seems like an even more difficult task to me, but I ask because with the nearness of the rapture. I can’t imagine a more surprised, disappointed, and terrified group than they will be after the rapture.
I was recently talking to someone I know about Christianity and my friend said to me that he can’t keep up with all these made up things from Santa Claus to the Easter bunny and even the tooth fairy. How do I respond to this? How can I show Jesus to be the one true thing in all this?
I would like to know if you know what happened to the ark of the covenant. I know about the ark but I don’t know what happened to it. I know that they took the staff and the bowl of manna out but where is the ark?
