I want to know about fasting, how, why, and when? I also want to where I can find it in the Bible?

In order to find Biblical information about a topic, it is a good idea to use a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. This wonderful reference book lists every single time a specific word is used in the KJV. So, I looked up the words "fast" and "fasting" in Strong's. Curiously, there are no directions […]

Are Christians women required to wear a covering while praying and prophesying?

1 Corinthians 11:5, 10, 13 (NASB) read, "But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head,… Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels….Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?" The Apostle Paul does instruct women […]

How do I prevent immoral thoughts against God?

Even though all kinds of sinful thoughts may pass through our brains, it is our Christian duty not to entertain them because sinful thoughts soon become sinful deeds.  When you recognize a sinful thought against God, you must immediately ask for His forgiveness and then ask Him to help you let go of every thought […]

As Christians what should we do if we have a verbally and physically abusive marriage?

As Christians we believe in the sanctity of marriage. In fact, the Bible presents marriage as a divine institution. God himself united Adam and Eve in holy matrimony, saying, “Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). “Cleaving” suggests the idea of […]

If a person has led a sinful life and has been instrumental in causing others to sin, would it be possible for such a one to be fully forgiven and all their past sins cancelled if they should repent and ask the Lord to forgive them?

There should be no question in the mind of any one on this point. The Scriptures abound with expressions in which the Divine love and compassion of God, the Heavenly Father, are set forth. The great Creator of the Universe sacrificed His well-beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to redeem the world and to reconcile […]

Are we to understand from `James 5:14-16`, that it is possible for the “Elders of the Church,” at the present day, to heal the sick by prayer and anointing with oil?

The following is a more literal translation of the verses cited than that in the Authorized Version: "Is any weak among you (weak in the faith, morally and spiritually weak or ailing) let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of […]

Is it proper for Christians to pray for health?

A babe in Christ might pray for physical health in all good conscience and might be granted an answer as a reward for the faith and prayer. But an advanced Christian, who had proceeded from justification to sanctification–one who had consecrated life and health and all to God, and who, in return, had been begotten […]

Will you kindly explain `Philippians 1:23`, “For I am in a strait betwixt two having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better?”

The context shows that the two things in the Apostle's mind (and which to choose he "wot not") were life and death. A third thing, however, enters in, which he has no difficulty in deciding is far better than either living in the flesh or dying in the Lord. This he earnestly desired, viz., the […]
