I have been reading your article From Adam to Abraham and pondering about the idol worship going on in Ur and ancient Mesopotamia at the time of Terah and Abraham. I came across an article giving more information than the Bible gives about Abraham and his father. It’s info from the Torah, Talmud, and the Midrash. I find it very informative; however, I don’t know how to trust this info since it goes into a lot of detail that I can’t find in our scriptures. I certainly would appreciate your take on this and I do appreciate your Q & A’s with your gifted knowledge of scripture.
I have heard that once the 2nd coming and all judgments are completed, the New Jerusalem here on Earth will be the only habitat for the Jewish nation, which will be led by Christ. I was also told the Gentiles will be given supernatural bodies and we will have the ability to travel the universe at will, including making visits to the New Jerusalem, but not actually taking up residence there. What say you to this?
If God is the Creator of all things, the Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent One of all there is, was and ever will be, did He, in all of his Wisdom and Knowing, also create Evil? And if so, why? And, if He did not, why doesn’t God, who is all-powerful, destroy Evil?
The bible tells us that 1/3 of the angels got kicked out of heaven. I have heard that there are 7 types of angels, thus the 7 spirits of god. Can you tell me out of the 7 types of angels which type fell from heaven or was it a combination of all 7 types ?
How does your position on Sunday worship follow the words by Jesus in Matt 5: 17-19? “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets; I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
I was reading Exodus 3 where Moses was confronted with the burning bush. It says that an angel of the Lord appeared to him. My question is about the angel of the Lord that has appeared multiple times in the Bible. Do you know if this angel of the Lord is a separate being from God himself? Or is this just a means of physically appearing to man?
I enjoy your website and appreciate your knowledge of God’s word. My question concerns the true born again experience. Most church messages I’ve heard call people to the altar to confess Jesus as their Savior, but never truly prepare the convert for the broken and contrite surrender necessary for the completion of their salvation. Do you agree that our Western Christian culture has watered down the message, leaving many who believe that they are born again deceived?
I was reading your study on Abraham and Isaac and you say (regarding the covenant that God made with Abraham) that it “required no behavioral standards to remain in force.” Can you elaborate on that, or explain it another way. I’m not quite sure what that means. Thanks
I was having a conversation with a bible study teacher from my church. When I said “covered by the blood” he said that I was not “theologically correct.” I was confused and he went on to explain to me that there is no blood to be covered by. Then he said the blood of Jesus was spilled and it is no more. It was a sacrifice before God and we are right with God because of it but we are not covered by it. Now, I believe that we are right with God only by accepting what Jesus did on the cross as payment for our sins and He purchased our salvation. My question is what about the scriptures that talk about His blood cleansing us?
