Q: I read an article recently that said more Christians are dying for their faith today than at any other time in history. A: Tragically, reliable reports certainly indicate this is true. In some ways, we shouldn't be surprised at this. Why is this?
Q: Can you lose your salvation once you've honestly committed your life to Jesus? A: I don't doubt the sincerity of your friend who believes we can lose our salvation if we sin after we've given our lives to Christ, but I respectfully disagree.
Q: If I become a Christian, will I have to be perfect? A: If God required us to be perfect, then no one -- absolutely no one -- would ever be able to be a Christian! One of the Bible's greatest truths is that God welcomes us just as we are.
Q: Is it wrong to have doubts about God? A: I'm sure most of us have had doubts, but the real question is what we do with them. Do you remember Thomas, who was one of Jesus' disciples? But Thomas's story doesn't end there.
Q: How can we explain the senseless acts of violence that seem to happen almost every day? A: You're right, up to a point; God has placed within each of us a sense of right and wrong, and it certainly should lead us to do what's right.
Q: I find myself wanting to pray for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren, but they haven't even been born yet. A: No one except God knows the future, of course, but almost certainly it will be different from today.
