Do you believe a person can be a practicing homosexual and be saved?

Do I believe a Christian can sin, and even live in sin for a time? Yes. Do I believe that a Christian can be disobedient to God? Of course. But I would say that homosexual relations are an abomination to God.

Do evangelicals dismiss the supernatural too easily?

Instead of assuming the authors are lying and are motivated only by money, we should address the specific portions that are unbiblical and warn people to trust the Scriptures as authoritative over these claims, in an Acts 17:11 manner.

How can some good, moral people not accept Christ and go to Hell, while other sinful people convert and go to Heaven?

Question from a reader:

A friend has asked me this question: How is it that someone who lives a good and moral life will go to Hell while another person who has lived a very sinful life, but repents at the last moment, will go to Heaven? Can you help me know how to explain the answer?

Do you have any advice for Christian conduct as a guideline for those in ministry?

Question from a reader:

Do you have any advice for Christian conduct as a guideline for those in ministry?

Answer from Randy Alcorn:

What you don’t want in Christian ministry is check-off-the-boxes Christian morality in which spirituality is measured in terms of a list of do’s and don’ts. This has happened in countless churches and Christian ministries, so any effort to avoid and resist it is worthwhile.

Is healing dependent upon me having enough faith?

I have dealt with many of the things that you may feel you are dealing with right now, too – like, why did God let this happen? Will God heal me? Is healing a matter of having enough faith and believing it’s true?...

What Not To Wear

First and foremost, your clothing ought to be becoming, fitting to, and consistent with your character as a child of God.

There was work to be done. After all, when Jesus came, the twelve came with Him. The house needed to be swept. Food would have to be prepared and the table set. Twenty-six extra feet would require washing. Bedding, too, must be arranged, as traveling dinner guests always spend the night. If I don’t do it, she may have thought, it won’t get done.
