Could you cover the topic of deeper forgiveness? I’m wrestling with this, especially having ‘forgiven’ my father and uncle. My father was in prison for most of my life for my mom’s death. My uncle, I believe, is even more dangerous, so I haven’t reached out to him. Do I need to maintain contact to prove I’ve truly forgiven? Can you forgive someone but still not want any contact? I’m trying to do this biblically, but most forgiveness advice I find covers less extreme issues. What about forgiving someone for taking the lives of those you love? And how do I reconcile this with the “honor your father and mother” narrative? -Mary Ellen
I’m a newer Christian dealing with OCD and social anxiety. I always make it to church services, but the anxiety can be so intense sometimes that I dart out to my car as soon as it’s over. This keeps me from building relationships with other believers and I end up feeling like I’m alone in the body of Christ. As a single person living alone, this is really discouraging. Any advice you could offer would be appreciated. -Kathryn
There’s a man being considered for music minister at my church, but he’s been divorced. His wife, who said she was a believer, left him and divorced him. Given 1 Timothy 3, does this disqualify him from serving as an elder? Does it suggest he failed to manage his household? -Logan
In our culture, it’s common to see men going shirtless at the beach, pool, or when working outside. From a biblical standpoint, do you believe this is appropriate, especially considering the likely reaction, both from Christians and the wider culture, if women were to do the same? -Philip

I’ve been attending a church with my parents for 2 years and want to become a member, but my dad wants to wait he is more certain. I’m 20, living at home, and ready to commit to this church, regardless of their decision. Any advice on handling this situation? -Chloe
It’s always good to see efforts to send Bibles to brothers and sisters in Christ in other countries, usually it’s just regular Bibles, so out of curiosity why specifically the John MacArthur Study Bible. -Anonymous
