How did ancient Gentiles receive salvation before Christ? Salvation was for Jews first, but what path was there for Gentile salvation in Old Testament times? Weren’t Adam, Eve, and everyone before Abraham Gentiles? What was their path to salvation? -Sherri
I have meditated for a few months now, but only have just recently thought about the origins of it, and its central use in false religions. If I am only using it to clear my head, is that ok, or should I be only relying on prayer to attempt to think more clearly? -Cory
I’m struggling to have good relations with my in-laws. They regularly go behind my back to my wife and criticize my decisions and how I lead my family. I want to honor them, but I’m hurt that they tear me down to my wife rather than approach me directly with wisdom on how I could improve. This has created tension between me and my wife. What should I do to honor my in-laws while dealing with this hurtful dynamic? -Seth
Recently you said some people might not see good results “this side of heaven.” Can you give me an example of how we might see good fruit from bad experiences after death, if we love the Lord? -Hannah
I’m convinced using the law to expose sin is biblical when evangelizing. But is it unbiblical to not use it? My church’s evangelism training doesn’t mention the law, judgment or hell, just presenting brokenness as the problem. What advice can you give on participating in these kinds of evangelism events where the law isn’t used? Should I engage anyway or distance myself from a potentially false gospel? -Jessi
For some time now I’ve felt what seems to be a calling to preach. I have a very sinful past including fornication. I’ve repented of this, and I know God has forgiven me, but does he take that opportunity away as part of a consequence for my actions? -Marc
I am married to a christian man, but over the last 9 years I have not seen much fruit that shows his desire to live for the Lord. My worst fear is that he was not fully saved though he thinks he is. How do I respond to this delicate matter as a believing wife, and how do I approach our church leadership without undermining my husband. My desire is for him to be saved. -Anonymous
Should we as Christians mock and demean Satan and his demons or have respect for them? I hear many Christian’s call Satan “Lucy” to demean him and mock him. They also seem to have this laid back attitude towards Him. While we serve Christ alone and Satan is a defeated enemy, are we supposed to show that type of attitude towards him? -Kyle
What are your thoughts on teenagers drawing/doodling during service? I’m finding that almost all the young people in our church are doing this during the sermon. Is it something that should be addressed or just left up to their parents to decide whether or not it’s appropriate? -Anonymous
