Does He Have The Right To Do That?

Published: September 13, 2018 (Originally published: June 1, 2012)
Q

I don’t understand why in the Noah’s Ark story God destroyed every living thing on earth except for eight people and a bunch of animals just because people did not pray and remember Him? Could a Creator have the right to destroy creatures? Similarly, can parents take their child’s life when the child is not listening to them or showing proper respect to the parents?

Using Holy Things For A Common Purpose

Published: September 13, 2018 (Originally published: July 2, 2012)
Q

I always have a problem when it comes to explain holiness. I want to think it means not drinking, not smoking, etc. But deep down inside me there is something that tells me that the meaning of this word goes deeper than that. When I read 1 Peter 1:13-16 I thought I was going to get a detailed breakdown of what holiness means but didn’t. Can you please explain what Pater was saying?

Sick About Dealing With A Non-Believer

Published: September 12, 2018 (Originally published: November 21, 2006)
Q

My husband and I started looking for a home several months ago and there are things that concern me about our mortgage broker.She’s a really nice lady and has been an asset as far as teaching us about credit and housing, etc. But something has always bothered me about her.

We found a home and will be closing on it very soon so we have been in her office a number of times and I noticed these pictures on her desk of a man and the words, “may the blessings be”. She has also said this to me on several occasions and each time I see or hear this, it stirs something inside me like an alarm goes off in my head. I’ve learned it is a religion called Eckankar.

It’s “a religion of spirit and light” according to their website. I am literally heartsick now, I mean my stomach hurts and I’m just sick wondering what I have gotten us into dealing with this lady, I just don’t know what to do.

I know throughout life we deal with people who are of all sorts, different religions, and atheists and I know that God uses those very people to help Christians but I want to make sure I am not doing something wrong dealing with this person. So please, please give me your advice.

Thank you so much and God Bless!

The Feasts Of Israel And End Times Events

Published: September 12, 2018 (Originally published: July 8, 2007)
Q

Have you considered overlaying the Feasts of the LORD to the end time events? I am not a specialist in this subject but I have found though my studying the Bride of Messiah, that the Feasts of the LORD (which are His appointed times) perfectly overlay the events of the end time and the gathering of His Bride! Just a thought.

Dealing With Religious People

Published: September 12, 2018 (Originally published: September 4, 2009)
Q

How do you deal with religious people that constantly push self righteousness? With one breath they say Jesus is their Savior, and the next breath, they say this person or that person is going to hell because they do this or that. I know Jesus had to deal with this, with the Scribes and Pharisees, but how do we deal with it today? How do we walk in Love and not offend this person who seems to put all their faith in filthy rags, and insists on dressing others in the same clothing?

I am aware of the story, Jesus told of the two men standing and praying…..but what do you say to the one that is proclaiming their own righteousness? Sadly, I find anger rising up in my own heart concerning it, and then I feel guilty, because I fall into judging another. I used to be extremely religious and it made me quite smug… but by the Grace of God, he led me to Pauls teachings which pulled the rug out from under my feet. It was much easier to have faith in myself by keeping all the man made rules, than to be honest with my wretched self and trust Christ to save me. You would suppose that because I too was like this once, I would know how to deal with it, but I don’t. Can you help?
