January 2017 Questions & Answers

The following questions are taken from emails and are printed below exactly as I received them.  Names and contact information has been removed.  The answers are in note form (sorry for any of my grammar errors) to be studied through.  You’ll have to examine each Scripture below to see the points.  Please be mindful that there are often circumstances and details to every question that could potentially change the answer.  Rightly divide the truth (II Timothy 2:15).

1. “I do not believe that luke 14:33 is a condition to become a christian but a thought a christian is to have after baptism. Isn’t Jesus talking to christians in luke 14? We are probably different in how we look at some things. I do believe that in studying and searching for truth, context, original language and grammar, and other things like hyperbole do matter -- hermeneutics at it's finest -- and some interpretations are bound to be different. I don't believe that anyone has all the answers -- it's more about continually trying to find them.”

2. “A cousin of mine called to let me know that his sister had an unexpected heart attack and died. He, like I have heard so many others say, even though the individual has no real religious conviction "Well, she is with the Lord now". What do you say to one who says that?”

3. “If a married wife talk with guys from Facebook that she doesn't know outside,And she still allow them to mutual-talk about LOVE...instead of telling them she is a married woman,and she made a secret thing about that to her husband and never tell about that. Even when her husband ask her to show him messages,she quickly delete all the "mutual-talk" messages in front of her husband and clearly become dishonest.She did like that again and again. Can I say this example as Adultery according to (Matthew 19:9)? Can a husband divorce such wife?”

4. “What is a woman in the church to do if her husband is abusive and he is a member too?”

5. “One of our members here is studying with a slow learner. A short time ago, the church here gave him and his wife each a bible. But, he is having trouble reading and understanding it. Especially since he and his wife have never studied the bible prior to this. Do you have any suggestions as to what (if anything) we might offer him a bible that might be easier for him to read?”
