In Hinduism when people take ordinary food and offer it to their idol Krishna, it becomes prasadham, food sanctified by the Lord. Then the Hindus will eat it. Does this food become devil’s food? Can Christians eat it?

The church in Corinth had this same problem. Some of the believers were saying they should not eat meat offered to idols. Others said an idol is nothing, just rock, so it really doesn’t hurt the food. We can eat that meat. This is how the Apostle Paul answered the question in 1 Corinthians 8:4-13 [...]

Someone wants to rid my home from any evil spirits by saying prayers and burning sage. Is this Biblical?

Yes and No.  Praying is always appropriate when you feel evil approaching; however, burning sage to ward off evil spirits is not Biblical. Throughout history, people have created many rituals to banish evil spirits.Yet, none of these rituals were designed nor blessed by God. No scripture even mentions the sage plant! The Bible does give an answer [...]

A Jehovah Witness told me that my relationship with God must be through Jehovah, not through Jesus. Is this true?

Jesus is quite clear when he says in John 14:6, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” It would seem, then, that our relationship with God must be through Jesus.  In order to have a relationship with God, one must be righteous. However, Romans 3:10 states that “no one is righteous, no not [...]

Why some pastors cannot be like other believers? I have seen pastors who treat believers in their church like they are their property, always asking for their thithing.

Anyone who is a pastor/minister should be gently directing the flock, as a shepherd does with the sheep. Two scriptural passages clearly state this.  “Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, [...]

If you are called to be an evangelist, should the paster of the church ordain you and give you a certificate?

“When they had ordained . . . in every church . . . they commended them to the Lord.” Acts 14:23KJV  In this Scripture, ‘ordained’ is the Greek word chierotoneo meaning to “stretch forth the hand” or “to vote”. So, we see that the early Church chose servants by the worshippers voting for their leaders [...]

How can I know which church is following the Holy Bible 100%?

It is probably safe to say that NO church follows the Holy Bible 100%. Just as no man is perfect, no church (comprised of men) is perfect.  However, various denominations have varying degrees of deviation from scripture. Some doctrines taught by some churches are blatantly in contrast to God's Word, other deviations are more subtle.  Additionally, some deviations can [...]

Do the words of Jesus -follow me- have a basis in Jewish culture and tradition?

Yes, they do. The educational system, or Mishnah, in Galilee in the time of Jesus was well structured, and the schools were closely associated with the synagogues. Children, boys and girls, began to learn to read and write the scriptures, the Torah, at age four or five. Memorization played a vital part. At ten, they [...]

Why is Islam not respected by ChristIan religions?

We respect anyone who is sincerely and humbly searching for God. The Quran, upon which Islam is based, claims that the Day of Judgment is committed unto Jesus. “And he (Jesus, son of Mary) shall be a knowing sign for the coming of the hour (Day of Resurrection) (i.e., Jesus’ decent on earth). Therefore, have [...]
