Is gluttony a forgotten sin in American culture, and why do you think even churches fall into it? -Tony
How should I go about addressing my pastor regarding his wife dressing immodestly? I feel like it’s being a bad witness to the church, but it’s also a delicate thing to talk to man about his wife. -Amado
I realize children can and sometimes should be part of worship, but should children be part of leading worship? -Danny
In your recent video about manliness, you mentioned the importance of having an older man to disciple a young man like me. I’ve never had someone to teach me how to be a man, as my dad isn’t a Christian. While there are men at my church whom I admire, I don’t have a close relationship with any of them. I want to know how to approach someone to mentor me, but I’m worried it might be awkward or inconvenient for them since they have their own families. Could you please guide me on how a young person should ask an older person to become their mentor? I’d greatly appreciate your advice on this matter. -Jacob
I’ve been reflecting on church history, particularly the early church era before the reformation. I’ve come across figures like Augustine and Athanasius, who were Catholic but have influenced modern Protestantism through their creeds and confessions. I understand that “catholic” should be considered in the context of the timeline, whether it refers to “Roman Catholic” or the “universal church.” Could you discuss this time period and guide me on how to read the writings of these early church fathers? -Caleb
What does the Bible say about soldiers going to war and having to kill people? -Anonymous
I’ve been pondering biblical interpretation and how to determine if something is a sin issue or merely a difference in understanding. With so many interpretations and doctrines, how can we distinguish sin from differing perspectives? Who is interpreting scripture correctly? -Tobi
I’d like to know the difference between preaching and teaching and how they should be expressed. The church I used to attend was doctrinally sound, but I felt a lack of emphasis on God’s love for me during the sermons, making them feel lifeless and dry. Can you shed some light on this? -Tim
Why isn’t the Book of Enoch in the Bible even though it is referenced in Jude? -Anonymous
As someone firmly pro-life, I’m uncertain about handling ectopic pregnancies. I believe that abortion is not the solution, yet in this case, I’m unsure how to reconcile it. -Janae
Is it right to break off with a friend that’s deconstructed?
You said you used antiperspirant.
Pastor resigned, preaching is done by supply preachers, can I attend another church that’s solid until a new pastor is hired?
I have 3 young children and I’m burdened over my children’s salvation.
What is people’s gripe about CS Lewis?
