On Manna and Personal Sabbaths

The scattering of manna in the wilderness happened 6 days a week. On the 7th, just as in creation, God rested and so did the Israelites—at least the obedient ones. Those who went out to gather manna on the Sabbath disappointed themselves and God.

Studying the Bible with S.O.A.P.

Question from a reader:

I am a correspondent for older children sponsored by a Christian organization. I want to send them Bible study techniques, but most likely the vast majority of my kids have NO access to anything but their Bible—no concordances, dictionaries, etc. Do you have some tips to give the kids on studying the Bible during their own quiet time?

Is it okay to be untruthful with someone who has dementia?

Question from a reader:

A friend’s wife has dementia and is constantly forgetting how many sodas she has had (she has a rule that she will not drink more than two a day). He feels guilty about lying to her and is struggling with the moral ethic of his actions. Is it okay to be untruthful with someone who has dementia?

God With Us: John 1:14

God is the Great Storyteller. With grand artistry, He brings forth a beautiful world in a spectacular universe. As the culmination of His creativity, He fashions Adam and Eve. He could have shielded them from Satan’s temptations, warding off evil, suffering and humanity’s curse. But He didn’t. So the man and woman rebel against God, and evil enters the world.

Readers’ Responses to Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Heaven

Thank you for the Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Heaven book. I've always longed for eternity, but everything I was told made it seem so boring and pointless. This book was a GOLD MINE of information. I long for eternity with the Lord even more, of course, but now I know that it will be an exciting and fulfilling existence. —E.K.

Does giving time or goods instead of money earn the same eternal reward?

Question from Reader:  

Can someone who doesn't necessarily give money to the poor but cares for them in other ways such as providing food and clothing receive the same eternal reward as somebody who does? Is money the best and ONLY way to help the needy and receive eternal reward? 

Is sanctification a process or a one-time event?

When we look at Scripture there is a sense in which we, as believers, have already been sanctified (Hebrews 10:10). But even more clear is that sanctification is a process (Hebrews 10:14). Looking at what God means by justification will help make clear what sanctification is.

If “no eye has seen” Heaven, how can we know about it?

God tells us about Heaven in His Word, not so we can shrug our shoulders and remain ignorant, but because He wants us to understand and anticipate what awaits us. We should accept that many things about Heaven are secret and that God has countless surprises in store for us. But the things God has revealed to us about Heaven belong to us and to our children. It’s critically important that we discuss and understand them.

What should I do if my spouse doesn’t want me to talk to our children about Heaven?

Question from a reader:

Ever since my children could talk, I have been instilling in them a joy and longing for Heaven. My daughter especially loves to talk and ask questions about Heaven. However, this is unsettling for my husband. He sees her longing for Heaven as something morbid. How should I balance my approach? I want to be sensitive to him but also instill joy and hope in our children, and answer their questions.

God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice: Why Is This Tough and Controversial Issue Worth Studying and Discussing?

What good can come from studying the mysterious and often upsetting subject of God’s sovereignty and human free will?

I believe one compelling reason to study them is to better understand what we cannot fully understand. And in the case of God’s sovereignty and human choice, while it’s not imperative that I understand everything, it is important that I believe in both.
