March 26, 2010Randy Alcorn shares about a divine appointment at the 2007 Desiring God Conference.
March 26, 2010Randy Alcorn answers the question, "How do you cultivate courage in your own life?"
I really struggle with the fact that God knew and planned for everything that was going to happen. How can I reconcile this with our ability to choose?
March 25, 2010I can certainly identify with many of your doubts and questions regarding God’s sovereignty, our free will, etc. Although I was raised in a strong Christian family, I went through a couple of years of intense skepticism and cynicism when I was younger.
March 25, 2010My heart goes out to you. One reason is because I can identify with some of what you’re going through. Earlier in my life I struggled with being overwhelmed by feelings.
I struggle with forgiving my parents for the painful home environment I grew up in. Do you know of any books that could help me?
March 25, 2010I highly recommend David Augsburger’s The Freedom of Forgiveness. Also, Philip Yancy’s What’s So Amazing about Grace?, which shows us how God’s forgiveness of us should result in our forgiveness of others.
March 25, 2010Question from a reader: I’ve heard negative things about Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, as well as Willow Creek Church and other seeker churches. What’s your opinion on this issue?
Answer from Randy Alcorn:Attacking fellow Bible-believing Christians is becoming commonplace. Spreading inaccurate information is epidemic.
March 24, 2010I am disappointed with God because I sincerely want Him to work in my life to bring about the fruit of the Spirit, but I don’t see Him doing that. I want to experience His power in my life and let the Holy Spirit control me.
March 24, 2010You sound like a great mom who really desires to lead and train her children in the ways of the Lord. My heart goes out to you as you have to bear this responsibility without your husband’s help and support.
March 24, 2010This passage demonstrates what is often true—if we misunderstand one biblical doctrine, we will inevitably misunderstand others.
March 24, 2010The greatest sorrow is not being able to forgive yourself. You say you feel worse now than ever. That is because you are carrying a load you were never intended to carry.
