The Leadership Team answers your questions.
Q1 (1:05). Is it my place to tell someone that they are not a believer when they say they are a believer? How far do I go in making a judgment and yet not being judgmental?
Q2 (12:45). Genesis 1:27 says that, “God created man … male and female He created them.” Later, in Genesis 2:22, it says, God made “a woman and brought her to the man.” Please explain how these support one another vs. contradict one another. Also, Genesis 9:19 says from Noah’s sons came all the people of the earth. Please explain how/why the various races of the world exist if all came from these three brothers and their wives?
Q3 (25:40). There are those who believe in the “Big Bang” theory of evolution and say they believe because it is easy to believe and yet find the concept of God such a hard thing to believe in. I speak to them from my soul w/the Holy Spirit, but they don’t accept. I bring them to church, but they don’t accept. Am I missing something? Is there a way I could explain things to them better? Quite frankly, I feel like I am trying to catch a greased pig!
Q4 (35:38). How do I communicate my feelings regarding same-sex marriage and yet not come off as close-minded and bigoted. Also, what are some non-biblical reasons to oppose same sex marriage? I say this because I can’t expect that lost people will act/submit to the same standards as Christians, so why should we impose this particular standard solely based on what the Bible says? Thanks for the help on this tough issue.
