Silent Prayer

Published: March 14, 2017 (Originally published: November 1, 2014)
Q

In about 1980 everything seemed to be falling apart around me. Sitting alone in my living room, I prayed a silent prayer to God/Jesus for salvation and guidance. Do you think God recognizes and accepts silent prayer for his saving grace, or at any other time when one prays?

More On Backsliders

Published: October 31, 2014 (Originally published: November 1, 2014)
Q

This is a salvation question. When we look at salvation in both the Old Testament and New Testament, a person is saved by faith: In the OT a person’s faith was based on the promised coming redeemer. In the NT, it is also based on faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Yet in your response to a question on “The Backslidden Believer”, you responded with “The Old Covenant was a conditional relationship based on obedience and a person who became disobedient was said to have turned away from the Lord.” Are you saying that those saved in the OT was based on works and not faith – somewhat confused – can you please clarify?

Understanding Romans 3:30

Published: November 1, 2014 (Originally published: November 2, 2014)
Q

Re: Romans 3:30. ” Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.” It is obviously differentiates between “by faith” and “through faith”, as if the former is for the Jews, and the latter is for us. Can you shed some light upon this?

Righteousness Or Justice?

Published: November 1, 2014 (Originally published: November 2, 2014)
Q

I was looking on the web for the beatitudes when I stumbled upon them in the Catholic Encyclopedia. I was shocked when I read there that they have substituted the word “righteousness” with “justice.” To me these are very different things. When we speak of justice we usually mean redress in a legal sense. If you commit a crime against me I desire justice, for example. But when I think of righteousness I think of a divine attribute that can only be gained via relationship and bestowal from God through Christ. (Rom 3:10 & 2 Cor 5:21.) So it seems to me that the Catholic Encyclopedia is substituting a man-to-man relationship for a man-to-God necessity. What are your thoughts on this?

The Queen Of Heaven

Published: October 25, 2014 (Originally published: October 25, 2014)
Q

Who are the Queen of Heaven, Queen of Sheba and Queen of the South, who Jesus spoke of in Matt. 12:39-42? I understand that the Catholics pray to Mary as the queen of heaven, but I have never read any scripture that conveys that she should be prayed to or considered the queen of heaven. One thing I read suggested that the queen of the south and the queen of Sheba are the same person. If you could just clear up who these people/persons are, that would be great.

Are There Two 70th Weeks?

Published: October 25, 2014 (Originally published: October 26, 2014)
Q

I saw a video where a man took Daniel 9:24-27 and used his knowledge of coming lunar and solar eclipses to determine that the missing 70th Week cannot be the same as the 7 year covenant with Israel. Would you take a look at this and give me your opinion?

Q

Your website is such a blessing to me. May God bless you for it because it has strengthened me in many ways. I have a question regarding Matt 24:14: And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14). My question is this… can you define “the end” mentioned in Matt 24:14?

Published: October 17, 2014 (Originally published: October 18, 2014)
Q

Romans:11:22 contains the phrase, “Otherwise you also will be cut off.” So does this mean that we can we lose our salvation, If we do not continue in His goodness?
