Matthew 22:30 says that there aren’t any marital bonds in heaven. However, we will be known. Will there be romantic affection for our loved ones? In answering this question, the principle of Deuteronomy 29:29 must once again be kept in mind. “The secret things belong to God.” In spite of the several biblical indicators described… Read More Bible Q&A: Will There Be Romantic Affection in Heaven?
When did Jesus realize that He had miraculous powers? Mary asked Him to help at the wedding feast. This somewhat implies that she had seen His wonders before. John specifically said that turning water into wine at the wedding feast was “the first of his signs” (John 2:11). Thus, Mary would not have seen her… Read More Bible Q&A: When Did Jesus Realize He Had Miraculous Powers?
A reader recently told me that their child had not been baptized as a baby, and they now wondered if their child was saved. The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is essential to salvation and forgiveness of sins (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; 22:16; 1 Peter 3:21) and is needed in order to become a disciple of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Galatians 3:26-27). The question is whether infants should be baptized. Let’s look at what the Bible says about baptism.… Read More What the Bible Teaches About Infant Baptism
A lot of people say that Saul was converted and saved on that Damascus road when Jesus talked to him and he “saw the light.” However, a further examination of both Luke and Paul’s account of the event shows that not to be true.… Read More What Does It Mean To Wash Away Your Sins?
Since the New Testament commands all Christians to pray (1 Thess. 5:17), specifically mentions Christian women praying (1 Cor. 11:5), and also commands that Christian women not “exercise authority” over Christian men (1 Tim. 2:12; cf. 3:14-15), then we conclude that the directive in 1 Timothy 2:8 is that Christian men lead the prayers in mixed-gender worship assemblies, and do so only if they are holy in nature (“lifting holy hands”) and not a hot-tempered or contentious person (“without anger or quarreling”). Thus, it would be good to view 1 Timothy 2:8 as the biblical qualifications for all who would lead acts of worship in the church assembly. When a Christian man who is living a clearly unholy, ungodly life, a brother in Christ who might be infamously known as a hot-head and a very contentious person, stands before the church to lead them in prayer, song, or other acts of worship, it can be very detrimental to the goal of worshiping in spirit and truth (John 4:24). … Read More Bible Q&A: Please Explain 1 Timothy 2:8-15.
Have you ever gone to the hospital to visit friends who are new parents, holding their precious gift from God that was just born, and hear them call the baby “a miracle”? What is usually meant is that babies are very special, and they are. The term “miracle” is used in many similar ways these… Read More Let’s Talk About Miracles…

God says in Genesis 3:22, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil…” Does this suggest that God is evil? Not necessarily, because there is a difference between knowing about evil and being evil. Being omniscient (Ps. 147:5; Heb. 4:13), God certainly would know about evil. However, that does… Read More Bible Q&A: If God Knows About Evil, Does That Make God Evil?
