Why are we told to pray for enemies and then the Bible talks about having our enemies crushed under our feet?

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those [...]

Where will the saints of God spend eternity after this earth is destroyed by fire?

There are many scriptures which state the earth will be destroyed by fire. However these scriptures are symbolic. The fire and the earth are not literal.

For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, in order to pour out my indignation on them, [...]

Why did God make Third World countries where no one had ever heard of God and they don’t know how to live?

When God made Adam and Eve, He created them in His own image. (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, mankind knows right from wrong.

They demonstrate that God’s law is [...]

Please explain 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17. Are the shout, the voice of the Archangel, the trump of God, the clouds and the air literal or symbolic?

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.” 1 Thessalonians [...]

If the second death is non-existence, please explain Revelation 21 verse 8.

Revelation 21:8 (ESV), “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” All mankind are not dying as a result of their own sins. All people [...]

In Exodus 32, verse 14 God said that He repented when He was going to destroy Israel. If God knows all things, why does He change His mind and repent?

“But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.” Psalm 86:15 (NKJV) God is omniscient, knowing the end of a matter at its beginning. He knows what passions and thoughts drive a man’s decisions. But as a wise God, at creation, He gave man a free will. [...]
