Randy Alcorn's Blog: question and answer

If God Is Good Q&A Video

If you missed today's Livestream video—which was a Q&A on my book If God Is Good—check out the embedded video in this blog. I enjoyed sharing a little about the book as well as answering the great, thought-provoking questions that viewers had.

Question and Answer of the Week: Do you believe in guardian angels?

angelScripture suggests there are guardian angels for children. Jesus says of children, "their angels behold the face of my Father," Matt. 18:10. Also, it appears there was one specific angel assigned to the apostle Peter ("his angel," Acts 12:15).

Luke 16:22 has "angels" carrying Lazarus to Paradise, but we don't know if one angel was his guardian on earth, or more than one, or if the angels are those who greet him on the other side of death.

Question and Answer: Paying Down Debt and Giving

young familyThe question I have is that we are reaping consequences from bad choices. My husband and I have a young family and are still paying down $100,000 of student loans from both of us going to a private university.

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: How to Live Wisely Financially

hand and moneyI hear all kinds of financial advice in today's times. I've heard about investing and saving and preparing for the future (for example, saving for our children's education or retirement). What would you say would be the best financial advice for someone who is just starting out with marriage and children and really doesn't know what to do with their finances?

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: Fasting

Question and Answer of the Week: Relationships in Heaven?

Genesis 2:18: The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him."

Taking Charge of the TV

TV remoteWith summer here and kids out of school, many Christians, and especially those who are parents, might be wondering: How do I take charge of the television?

 

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.
