Rewards in Heaven:Why do we need to know that there are rewards in heaven, if we are made perfect when we get to heaven? And would it not be selfish to be concerned about getting rewards? [Genesis 15:6, I Corinthians 9, Matthew 25:14-30].
Word of Faith-Healing:Am I being too critical of my pastor's teaching, if he seems to be promoting Word of Faith teachings and possibly inappropriately applying scripture for physical healing? [Isaiah 40:31, Luke 10:19].
The Narrow Path & Abundant Life:Some of the verses about "the narrow path", and "few who find it", seems to contradict the ones about an "abundant life in Christ", would you harmonize this for me? [Matthew 7:13-14, 11:28-30, John 10:10, Luke 12:15, 2 Corinthians 1:3f].
Greek for "Life":Caller shared some information: The Greek words; zoe, psuche, bios, all are usually translated as "life" (and sometimes soul). Zoe, which means, "divine, uncreated life", is used in John 10:10.
Sinful Nature:Do you believe we inherited anything in the fall, such as a sinful nature, that Jesus did not inherit, particularly in light of the quandary about His ability to be tempted like us? [Genesis 3:5-6, Romans 5:12-18].
Applying Old Testament Promises to Ourselves:I am wondering if I can apply one of my favorite verses to myself, even though it was meant to the Old Testament exiles in Babylon? [Jeremiah 29:11, Deuteronomy 28, Joshua 1:5, Hebrews 13:5, Psalm 118:6, 2 Corinthians 1:20].
70th Week of Daniel:Can you help me explain the 70th week of Daniel if it is actually following immediately after the 69th week, rather than having a 2000 year gap? And when he was crucified (or was cut off) in the midst of that week (3.5 years of that 7 years)? Does the 'abomination of desolation'" help one lean one way or the other? [Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15].
Lot:How does one understand the nuances of the Bible especially in some of the distasteful stories about Lot (when he offered his daughter to the visitors, or when the daughters slept with their father)? [Genesis 19: 8, 30-38].
Eat My Flesh & Drink My Blood:How do you harmonize the Jewish restriction on eating human blood and flesh, and yet, Jesus told his disciples to drink his blood and eat His flesh? Why would He use such a distasteful analogy? [I Corinthians 11:23-25, Mark 14:22-24, Acts 10:9-16].
Seeing God:In the Bible it is stated that "No man has seen God", yet in other places it indicates that some have, so would you harmonize this? [I John 4:12, John 1:14,18, Exodus 33:20, Genesis 18:1, 32:30, Isaiah 6:1, Hebrews 10:20, 2 Thessalonians 2:8, Revelation 20].
America, Communism, Damage:How would you describe what is happening in America today, and the direction she is heading toward communism, from which I just recently escaped? And how this compromise is damaging families. [Proverbs 16:18, Matthew 10:35, 37-38].
"Mansions" & "House of the Lord":What do you think of paralleling the John 14 verse to Psalm 23? Is the "mansions" or "house" really our lives in relationship with family? [John 14:2, Psalms 23:6, Ephesians 2:19, Psalm 27:4].
