Giving To Get?

Published: April 29, 2020 (Originally published: April 17, 2009)
Q

At our church, Malachi 3:10 is often quoted when they talk about giving. If they would just say that you are to give 10% and let it go, I would be ok, but they quote Mal. 3: v10 and say test God and see if the floodgates will not be opened. I think I have tested God and in my opinion, the floodgates have not been opened. I understand that you are supposed to give out of gratitude for what God has done for you and not because of what you will get from God. My question is, why do churches use Mal. 3 v10 as a tool for encouraging people to give?

Where Do We Go After Death?

Q

I read that one remains in the grave until the rapture. If this is so why did Jesus say to the robber – today you will be with me in paradise? Is paradise another place? And when the poor man died he went to a place where Abraham was and they were talking and so on?

Why Did Judas Betray The Lord?

Published: April 29, 2020 (Originally published: April 20, 2014)
Q

Since we’re in the Easter season, a thought occurred to me. What was Judas’ motive to betray Jesus? It certainly couldn’t be just the 30 pieces of silver. What did he stand to gain (in his mind) by betraying the Lord?
