  • Anger and Sin: Could you explain Ephesians 4:26, 31. Can we as sinners be angry and not sin?

  • Are Sins Equal?: Are all sins created equal? For example, like comparing someone who committed suicide to someone who said God's name in vain. Would they both receive the same punishment?

  • As God is my Witness: When a person wants one to believe that they are telling the truth, why do they say, "as God is my witness"? Where in the Bible does it say, "as God is my witness"? Does this mean that the person is sincere and being honest, or does it have any significance at all?

  • Becoming a New Creature: Please let me know what is said about watching movies that contain nudity and bad language?

  • Being Troubled About the Sabbath:  Do you have people telling you that you have taken the mark of the beast by worshipping on Sunday?  Do they try to convince you that you are evil because you do not keep the sabbath?  Here are some pointers on how to handle this confrontation.

  • Definition of Grace: What is grace and what does it do for me?

  • Do All Hear the Gospel?: Do all men have a chance to hear the Gospel before they die? I realize that God "reveals Himself through His creation," thus, does one merely have to honor His handiwork if they otherwise do not hear the message of Christ? This includes Native Americans before the colonization of North America. Thank you.

  • Doubting Salvation: There are many times that I doubt whether or not I am saved. How can I know for sure that I am saved?

  • Giving Your All To God: There are many things you should be doing, like praying and Bible reading and going to church and more. However, Romans 6:13 outlines how we can give our all to the Lord. You may fail on many occasions. In fact, if you follow these steps in sincerity, you may be more frustrated for a time because these steps will show you many ways in which you fail the Lord.

  • How Can a Christian Life Touch Others: The Bible refers to this act as “ministering” which in its basic definition is simply attending to the wants and needs of others. However, to minister to others one must first be willing to submit themselves to the Lord in all humility realizing that before they can hope to help others.

  • Importance of Attending Church: I have found that I can't stand going to church. Some of the things just turn me off. I am having a hard time knowing God because of this small town that I live in. I don't want to go to another town to attend, but I should be in church. There's several small churches and any time I attend another someone in the town will give me a hard time. Our town is about 700 people. I want to be in a church and have a church family and I am not finding that here.

  • Multiplied Trials: My husband and I have been going through one trial right after another. How do you know why you are going through the trial and what can you do to be strong during the trial?

  • Music for Pleasure: I've read some of Alan Ives writings on music. To be blunt - is this something that Baptists are "nit picky" about? What does the Bible actually say about melody, harmony, and rhythm? I've also listened to your sermon on music - does this apply to what we listen to outside of church?

  • Nakedness: What does the Bible say about nudity or nakedness?

  • Nominal Christianity:  In many communities all over the world people claim to be saved when they do not personally know Jesus Christ as Saviour.  These people are "Nominal Christians" or Christians in "name".  What can be done in these areas to reach people?

  • Steps to Victory Over Cigarettes: I am a born again believer and I can't put my cigarette smoking habit away. How do I overcome this? I will not take the pain and deny my flesh for too long, and it really discourages me. I worry because I am hurting my testimony and the entire body of Christ by my actions.

  • Studying the Bible: Some of the great characteristics of the Bible are its complexity, depth, and sheer volume. God did not send just a little information, but He sent us everything He wanted us to have in this life to learn about Him, His love for us, His provision of salvation, and how to live life victoriously through Him. The Bible isn’t a book that you can read through once and set aside saying, “That’s done.” This question and answer is written to encourage you with a few thoughts on why Bible study is profitable, how to begin, and what you can do when questions arise.

Should a Christian miss their own home church services in order to attend a Vacation Bible School at another Church?

  • To Whom Shall We Pray?: I have a question. To whom am I supposed to pray? I believe in it, but who am I suppose to pray if I want to repent and be saved? our heavenly father or Jesus? or does it make any difference?

  • Wearing Shorts To Work:  I am a saved male and wanted to know if it was ok to wear shorts on extremely hot days. The shorts would pass the knees and only be worn at work.
