Faith Related Q and A
» How old is the earth? I've heard a few numbers.
» I recently received a letter of peaceful release and termination of membership. Are there any guidelines for letters to submit for their release? A proper procedure in handling this matter is what I guess I am in need of.
» Thank you for your Q&A site. It is a valuable resource for understanding the truth of God’s word. A recent posting (“Election and salvation”) indicated that God’s desire that all be saved (1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9) and God’s election to salvation (Ephesians 1:3-14) when taken together constitute a mystery that human minds cannot comprehend. But a general desire by God for the salvation of all need not be in conflict with God’s specific actions on election, even to a human mind. For example, they might be reconciled as follows: 1. God wants all people to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4) by living perfect and holy lives (Matthew 5:48), but unfortunately none do (Romans 3:23). 2. So God sent His Son Jesus into the world to so that people could be saved by believing in Him (John 3:16; Romans 3:24). 3. God wants all people to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4) by believing in Jesus of their own free will (Matthew 23:37a), but unfortunately none do (Matthew 23:37b; 1 Corinthians 2:14). 4. So God sends His Spirit into the world to build faith in the hearts of those he elects (1 Corinthians 12:3; Ephesians 1:3-14) in order to build His church on earth. Do you see a problem with this interpretation? Thanks again.
» Please explain the meaning of the words in the Lord's Prayer that say "Thy kingdom come" so younger children will have an understanding of it. Thank you!
» My question is about tithing. I'm running across people who seem to think that if you tithe that God will bless you generously in a financial way. They cite Malachi 3. I've read it, and it appears to say what they say it says. What does WELS say?
