Randy Alcorn's Blog: Questions and Answers

How can I stay motivated in my relationship with Jesus Christ?

First loveA reader of my blog asked, How does a believer keep his motivation? I understand the motivation of the new believer, but how does one stay motivated in day-to-day living, year after year?

Should we literally gouge out an eye that causes us to sin?

deal radicallyThe eye represents what we see. The hand represents what we do. What I think Jesus is saying here in Matt. 5:27-32 is, “Deal radically with what you expose your eyes to. Deal radically with what you handle and do, the places you go, and what you touch.”

What do you think about "Christianese"?

What do you think of "Christianese"?Several weeks ago we asked blog readers to submit questions for me to answer. I’ll be posting the video answers to the questions as blogs over the course of the next few weeks. One of the questions asked was: What do you think about "Christianese"?

If you could ask Randy a question…

Looking for your questionsRandy will be doing another filming soon, and we’re asking his blog readers what questions they would like him to address in a video blog.

How do I minister to an unsaved friend whose loved one died without a relationship with Christ?

Unsaved friendIn today’s blog, I’m answering one final question that was asked by a reader:

How would you respond and minister to unsaved friends or family (or even strangers) who have lost a loved one and assume their lost loved one is in Heaven, even though that person clearly did not have a relationship with Jesus Christ?

How can you have assurance of your own salvation?

assurance of salvationAnother question a reader asked me on my blog was this: Even though I gave my heart to the Lord a long time ago, I always struggle with thoughts that when I die, I will find I am not saved. That produces a lot of fear. I know the Bible says to believe, but how do you know what is really in your heart, since only God can see and know what is in our hearts?

What is the darkest or most difficult experience you have had to date?

Darkest, most difficult time?A couple of weeks ago, we asked my blog readers to submit questions for me to answer. Here’s my answer to another one of them.

The specific question asked was, “What is the darkest or most difficult experience you have had to date that you are willing to share?”

Why doesn’t the church address the issue of modesty?

Here’s another great question I was asked on my blog:

Modesty"My husband and I are glad that the church is finally talking about the problem of pornography   and purity in the Body of Christ, and helping men address this issue. But why do we never hear about purity for women in the way they dress? I’m talking about women who profess to be Christ-followers. They become a stumbling block to their brothers when they dress seductively or dress to be sexy as the world has deemed fashionable. Please address the issue of modestly."

How should Christians respond to UFOs and other unexplainable phenomena?

UFO questionAnother question I was asked by a reader is, How should Christians respond to theories of UFOs and other unexplainable phenomena? People around the world have seen and experienced something. But what is the something? How can a Christian respond to these reports when conversing with others, particularly those who are not Christians?

Ask Randy: Looking for Your Questions

microphoneThose of you who enjoy the resources from Desiring God (a site we highly recommend) are probably familiar with “Ask Pastor John”, where John Piper answers questions on video. That’s our inspiration for this feature: we’re inviting those of you who read Randy’s blog to submit your question for him in a comment on this post. We’ll choose three of those questions
