Question: Won’t people from any religion go to heaven after death if they have been sincere in their own beliefs on earth? Answer: The idea that all people will wind up in heaven when they die regardless of what they believed is called universal salvation. Even though that idea makes up happy that they won’t miss the paradise of heaven, it’s a myth that is opposite of what the Bible reveals. This false hope is popular among so-called religious groups that wrongly teach God is a force of nature that indwells all living things, an idea known as pantheism. Other
Question: My family is traumatized because of the sudden deaths of several relatives, and now my parents are getting a divorce. Why does God allow all of this to happen in a Christian family? Answer: We often try to understand the reasons God didn’t intervene to block some events that He knew would cause us great grief. Physical death is a part of life, and Jesus came into our world to make sure we would be given eternal life with Him in heaven! When we ask Him to come into our daily lives and be our Master and Guide, we
Question: Why should I pray to God when it doesn’t do any good? Answer: It sounds like you didn’t receive an answer you were hoping for, and so you are feeling disconnected from God. However, just because you didn’t get what you expected doesn’t mean that God did not hear. In your human finite understanding, you don’t realize all the many, many times during your life that God shielded you and others whom you love from harm and saved you from ruin. We won’t know all the good things God has done for us until we meet Him face-to-face. As
Question: Why doesn’t God do something to stop the terrible suffering of people? Doesn’t He hear prayers anymore? Answer: God DOES act to relieve suffering, and He definitely DOES hear our prayers! We are not always watchful for His answers. We are not the only ones to wonder God why He allows as much heartache and loss as He does. The Bible tells us of numerous examples, such as Joseph. He must have wondered why God would allow his jealous older brothers to sell him into slavery to get rid of him. Later, he was falsely accused while serving in
Question: What exactly is meditation? Is it something Christians should do or avoid? Answer: The Bible speaks of meditation as important – even vital – to knowing how God is guiding your life. Here are some examples: “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked…But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law, he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2 “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me. I have
Question: What does the Bible say about the Antichrist? Could he be one of our world leaders today? Answer: The term anti-christ is used for a person who is against or anti-Jesus Christ; he will be the opposite of every good thing that Jesus is and promises. The Bible predicted that many antichrists (note the lower-case letter a) or evil rulers would lead nations over the course of history, but only one would eventually rule the world and demand that people worship him as a god. During World War II, many Christians feared that Adolf Hitler was the final antichrist.
Question: Should I pray for people who have died so God will allow them to enter heaven? Answer: God’s infallible guidebook for us, the Bible, does not advise us to pray for anyone after his or her death. At death, a person’s destination is set and doesn’t change. It’s either the paradise of heaven or punishment in hell. The apostle Paul wrote that men and women have only one chance to live on earth, die, and be judged by Jesus based on their faith in Him. “…Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
Question: What should Christians should do about Halloween? Answer: Those of us who are Christian parents struggle with whether to allow our children to take part in the observance of Halloween. It is alright for children to trick or treat? Should we allow children to attend the school Halloween parties? These are among the many difficult choices that we must make as representatives of Jesus Christ in the world. The best place to look for guidance is always the Bible. Of course, since Halloween is a newer “holiday”, it’s not specifically mentioned in the scriptures, although the Bible admonishes us
Question: Doesn’t the Bible have errors due to translations over the years? How can we know what is truly God’s instruction for us? Answer: This is an extremely important issue, the main one in Christianity today. There will be no middle or “lukewarm” ground for followers of Jesus Christ, or Christians. The decision comes down to this: Do you believe God or not? God’s Holy Spirit, sent by Jesus to guide His followers after He ascended to heaven, keeps our Biblical record safe from infiltration by false teachings. When you compare the first manuscripts available with parallel historical texts and
