Question and Answer of the Week: Is the Bible inerrant?

BibleI believe in the inspiration and authority of Scripture, but I don't think this means I have to believe in inerrancy. The Bible isn't meant to be a textbook, and we don't need to believe in the details of the creation account, and the first man and woman in the garden, or about Jonah being swallowed by a whale. The Bible contains parables and metaphors. Do I really have believe it has to be correct in all the little details to be God's Word?

 

Question and Answer of the Week: Looking Forward to Heaven?

CrossWith the deaths of several celebrities on the forefront of people's minds, I want to focus this week's question and answer on Heaven. Because the reality is, as human beings, we all have a terminal disease called mortality. The current death rate is 100 percent. Unless Christ returns soon, we’re all going to die. We don’t like to think about death; yet, worldwide, 3 people die every second, 180 every minute, and nearly 11,000 every hour.

Question and Answer of the Week: the Old Testament Model of Tithing and Christians Today

offering plateDoes the Old Testament model of tithing still apply to Christians today, since it was part of the old covenant?

I have mixed feelings on tithing. I detest legalism. I certainly don’t want to pour new wine into old wineskins, imposing superseded first covenant restrictions on Christians. However, the fact is that every New Testament example of giving goes beyond the tithe.

Question and Answer of the Week: When a Spouse Doesn't Want to Give

woman thinkingMy husband, though an active believer, does not want to participate in tithing or giving. He feels there is not enough money to take care of the family as it is, so giving extra away is not something he chooses to participate in. We have never regularly tithed, even when we were on church staff. As a stay-at-home mom with no income, I have nothing to contribute outside of what he decides for our family to give. I pray, in earnest, for a change of heart. How should I respond?

 

Question and Answer of the Week: Why does God take some people to heaven so young?

girlWhy does God take some people to Heaven prematurely—before it seems He should—and others so late when they are old and in such pain?

Isaiah 55 says God's thoughts are higher than ours. He has purposes we can't comprehend.
