Thank you so much for the time you have given to Bible Study and the ministry you are doing today. Many are benefiting from your knowledge. May God bless you richly.
I have a question: What does Scripture have to say about Christians rebelling against a repressive government?
I understand that Satan attacks us through our minds. How does he do this? I know all the scriptures re: girding up the mind, stay alert, think on these things, etc., are more than likely our best defense. Do you have some insight into this?
Based on your web site I have come to the belief that you can not lose your salvation, however, I have a question I would like an answer to. I have a friend that, once-upon-a-time believed the Bible and its teachings. It has been recently that she has begun soul searching and has been thinking about converting to another religion (which has yet to be determined). My question is “if she was saved once but then changes her mind and converts to another religion that may not even believe in God or Jesus, will she still keep her salvation?” I would think that choosing to follow “another god” is kind of “spitting in his face”. I just find it hard to believe that a person who was saved and believed in God and Jesus for along time, and runs into a point where they are not sure what to believe, and then changes religions, would still keep their salvation because they kind of decided to not want to believe anymore. Any thoughts? Is there anything I can say or tell my friend to help her find herself?
I have learned so much from your site. Thank you. I have a question about the woman that came to where Jesus was and bathed his feet/head. Matt 26:1-13 States that Jesus was dining at the home of Simon the leper when a woman came in and bathed His head with fine oils and perfume. In Mark 14:1-9 again it’s recorded that at the house of Simon the leper that a woman came in and bathed his head.
In Luke 7:36-50 while Jesus was at the home of a Pharisee named Simon that a woman of the streets (possibly Mary Magdalene) came and bathed His feet, cried and wiped her tears with her hair. In John 12:1-3 John wrote that Mary, the sister of Martha had washed the feet of Jesus and there was no mention of Simon. Is this the same story written in different ways from each other or does this happen at different times? Mary, Martha’s sister wouldn’t have been considered a woman of the streets. Also Was a leper allowed to be a Pharisee? Thanks for your answer. I always look forward to GraceThruFaith each day. Please keep up the wonderful work you are doing.
If we are to understand that Jesus, God, and the Spirit are three and the same, then why would Jesus give us the illusion of going to pray to another being, unless if this is only to set an example for us?
But then why would He go to pray to another higher being? This would seem to create more confusion than clarity, especially if we are to believe that all three are the same being.
I have a question about James 5:19,20. I have just recently been confronted again by some dear relatives who have the strange idea that I no longer belong to God and they think it is their duty to restore me. When I mentioned Eternal Security they said I couldn’t prove it, so I gave them one of your articles and sent them away to study it.
In the mean time I was searching your site for something on James 5:19,20 and couldn’t find anything or possibly missed it. Do you have anything on this passage? Anything you can teach me on this will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, thank you so much for the Isaiah and Mark series, I have learned a great deal from them.
Noah took his sons and their wives with them. Did each husband have multiple wives of different races? The only reason I ask is because it’s confusing that all life was destroyed on earth, leaving Noah and his family to repopulate the earth. Now, if Noah and his sons and their wives were all from the same region, then it seems everyone on earth that resulted from all those years of re-populating would all generally have the same skin color, bone structures, features, etc.
I have a question about Resurrection Morning. If I understand it correctly, on a Jewish calendar the Sabbath will end when the sun sets on Saturday correct? Does that mean that Resurrection Morning will begin at that time, and that Jesus could have come out of the tomb anytime after sundown Saturday?
Also, I was wondering what leads you to believe that Jesus was born in late-September during Rosh Hashanah? Thank you for answering my questions!
I was in Church on Palm Sunday sitting next to my brother. I heard the Pastor make a statement that John the Baptist was resurrected. My brother and I looked at each other and both of us said, “I didn’t know that.” Is there any scriptural evidence to back this up? I left this particular church awhile back because of many doctrinal statements this pastor has made that I was in disagreement with. I’m wondering if this is yet another one.
