Why Didn’t God Send Someone Else?

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 7, 2016)
Q

How come God had to send His only son to Earth to accomplish what he wanted accomplished? Why didn’t God just talk to someone else and tell them what to do? (kinda like Noah) So Jesus, being his “Only Son” does that mean he can’t send another person to earth now?

Abraham’s Children

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 6, 2016)
Q

Where do we find any reference that Abraham had 8 kids (Isaac, Ishmael, and 6 others from another woman)? I have recently heard this teacher saying that, but he didn’t specify the source.

Taxes And Tithes

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 6, 2016)
Q

I appreciate and agree with your interpretation of scripture that we should give a minimum 10 percent of our income plus offerings, the more the better. I happily meet these minimums and hope to increase them as God prospers me. However, some writers conclude that the temple to which the ancient Israelites were contributing was more than a religious tithe, but as a theocracy the temple was also responsible for the social welfare as well as the religious welfare of the people.

Since our taxes to the U.S., state and local governments are to promote the common good, although sometimes debatable as to their effectiveness and wise use, is it possible to consider involuntary taxes as being a part of our tithe?

Saving The Children

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 7, 2016)
Q

In your article, The Feast of Pentecost, you said”

“One day soon now, all who are in Christ, having heard and believed the Word of Truth, the Gospel of our salvation, thereby receiving the mark of the promised Holy Spirit, will suddenly disappear from the face of the Earth. Included among them will be all children and those mentally incapable of making informed choices.”

If all children are also raptured, then why were not the children in Noah’s time saved? Or in Sodom?

Are Children Accountable?

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 6, 2016)
Q

I just read your statement on Children and the Rapture and you used Romans 7:9 as why children will be taken. Are you saying children are sinless till they reach the age of accountably? So they are not sinners when they are born? Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.

How Can Men Be The Bride Of Christ?

Published: May 4, 2016 (Originally published: May 5, 2016)
Q

Your site is still daily food for me, thank you so very much.

My question this time regards how to teach the concept of men and women being the “Bride of Christ.”

We know that means the “church.” However, some men have difficulty grasping the non feminine meaning of their being a bride,and also how they can be the “body” of Christ. Any suggestions?

Is Lucifer Satan?

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 2, 2016)
Q

I was referred to your website from a friend and was reviewing some of your answers to your readers as well looking through your book. In one of your answers and in your book Children’s Stories of the Bible (The Adult Version) you state that Satan is Lucifer in Isaiah 14:12. I was rather shocked at this because the word Lucifer is not in any manuscript.

I have copied a quick study on this from a scholar that I read and would like to share with you. After you review this, please explain to me how and why you believe Lucifer is Satan and how that name is used when it is not in any manuscript? I would like a different opinion on this so I know all sides.

On Spiritual Warfare

Published: April 26, 2016 (Originally published: May 2, 2016)
Q

I have a question concerning what is meant by the phrase “spiritual warfare” ? Are the angels still loyal to God engaged in actual combat with the ones who fell with Satan? I understand that the important thing in being a Christian is following the teaching of Christ, but when I read about things such as this I can’t help but be curious.

Thanks for your time and your website! It continues to be a great tool in my Bible studies.

God bless.

What is the biblical definition of a person who has clean hands and a pure heart for the Lord? Just one who believes in Him or is it much more?

Passover Question

Published: May 3, 2016 (Originally published: May 4, 2016)
Q

My question for you, is about Passover. If Jesus fulfilled the law, why did He do passover the day before, on Preparation day. Is it because He was the Passover Lamb? (thus fulfilling the law!)
