Seven Questions Answered About the Coming of Christ

In the Old Testament many references mention Christ's coming in glory. Even before the flood Enoch prophesied about His coming with ten thousands of His holy ones (Jude 14). But concerning the coming of Christ for His church which is His body nothing is written in the Old Testament because it was a mystery.

A pastor of arguably one of the most influential churches in the world recently refused to give a concrete answer when asked to clarify his church’s position on same sex marriage.

The expression “What difference does it make?” is frequently heard today, but it is used in two very different ways that convey entirely different meanings. It can simply be the expression of a person who is not sure which of two or more beliefs, opinions, options, actions, or positions is the correct one; he still has a sincere desire to find the correct answer. On the other hand, these same words can be used flippantly to imply that it probably doesn’t make much difference what one believes, thinks, says, or does.

Podcast Update

As many of you have noticed, we have not uploaded a "What Does the Bible Say?" podcast since August 19. We truly apologize for the long delay, but we wanted to update you on the reasons why. We have had some problems with our software (as well as my lack of competency with the software), and we are trying to coordinate a time when our media technician can assist us with this issue. The busyness of the last few months has made this appointment very difficult to coordinate.
