Can Romans 12 be used to argue for capital punishment?

July 9, 2022

Can Romans 12 be used to argue for capital punishment? How do you break a stronghold in your life? My ex-girlfriend is hurting. Should I reach out to her to help? How can I share my faith with a Jewish person? What does "destruction of the flesh" mean in 1 Corinthians 5? My husband acts like a narcissist. What should I do?


Are the events in 1 Corinthians 5 a judgment, or a discipline, or are they aimed at an unbeliever? Are believers forbidden from marrying someone who has been divorced? Is God's grace enough for my repetitive sins and addictions?

Should we be compassionate with ourselves? James says we all stumble, but Romans says we're freed from sin. So, which is it? How much struggle is too much to truly be saved? Why did Paul mention one of the Ten Commandments in Ephesians 6?
July 7, 2022
Do we need to apologize or repent to be forgiven by God? What is the sin that doesn't "lead to death" in 1 John 5? Why would Jesus not know the day nor the hour of the events described in Mark 13?
July 6, 2022
Why does Paul talk about slavery to sin in Romans 6:16? What are your thoughts on Calvinism or Reformed theology?
July 5, 2022
Does the Old Testament offer support for abortion? Why did Jesus say we only need faith the size of a mustard seed? What does "moving mountains" without faith really mean? Why would God allow me to live with all my afflictions?

Most believers agree they are holy and blameless “in God’s eyes,” but we’re not so sure we can actually call ourselves “good.”Religion has taught us that we want to sin, we should doubt our motives, and that it’s more humble to view ourselves as bad – or, at best, only partly good.But if we’re bad at the core, trying to do good will be a losing battle. There’s no real victory in the Christian life if we’re fighting against our own nature and desires.In this message, I answer the simple question, “Are you good?” with a resounding “Yes!” You’ll find a genuine freedom in this one – maybe like never before!

How do you find fulfillment in life? Why can't a believer lose their salvation? Do you think sometimes there's more emphasis in the church on pro-life than salvation? Sometimes I wish my son and I were never born. Was Nicodemus really supposed to understand being "born again"? Whom is Paul addressing in Galatians 5? Is it okay for a believer to practice a homosexual lifestyle?
July 2, 2022
What should we believe about the Sabbath? Why does 2 Peter talk about losing your firm foundation? What is the "judgment" at the Lord's Supper in 1 Corinthians 11?
July 1, 2022
Why does God mention that some were martyred and "did not love their lives" in Revelation 12? What are the differences between the old covenant and the new covenant? What does Hebrews 10 mean by "no longer have consciousness of sins"? Can we actually live that way, without guilt?
June 30, 2022
Does God use our mistakes for good? Why do I feel so alone in understanding God's grace? What should I do? Is Hebrews 6 a warning about losing your salvation? Does God rank each sin differently?
