Zealot

     Can you explain what the ‘zeal of God’ means?

Sincerely,
Definite About Definitions

Dear Definite About Definitions,

Jhn 2:17 says that Jesus had a zeal for God’s house that consumed Him when He cast out all the moneychangers and those that were selling things in the temple.  Jesus is a great example of having zeal for God.  He felt as strongly about sin and wickedness as the Father does.  ‘Zeal’ is defined as ‘a fervor of spirit’.  We should have a passion for the Lord’s work and the Lord’s will.  If we combine zeal with Bible knowledge, we will be pleasing to the Lord (Jhn 4:24, Rom 10:2).

Laws To Live By

     Did the Bible come after Adam and Eve, or did they have a Bible?

Sincerely,
Early Reader

Dear Early Reader,

The Bible took roughly sixteen hundred years to write, and the first five books were written around 1425 BC by Moses.  Moses lived thousands of years after Adam and Eve, and that means that Adam and Eve didn’t have a copy of the Bible.  The reason for this is simple – the Old Testament is a law for Jewish people (Deu 5:1-3), and the New Testament is a law for christians (1 Cor 9:21)… Adam and Eve weren’t Jews or christians.  Adam and Eve had a law from God, and it can be found in Gen 2:15-17.  Adam and Eve’s law was to care for the Garden of Eden and to never eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  God has always had laws for people to live by, but Adam and Eve’s laws were different than ours.

Skip The Mosque

     Are those of the Muslim faith going heaven, too?

Sincerely,
Not Mohammed

Dear Not Mohammed,

Muslims can go to heaven if they renounce their Islamic beliefs and convert to Christianity.  Jesus is the only way to God.  Jesus proclaimed, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except through Me.” (Jhn 14:6)  Rom 1:16-17 says that the gospel is the tool God uses to bring us salvation.  Muslims follow the Q’uran, not the Bible, and they trust in Mohammed, not Jesus.  Islam is in direct contradiction to the Bible.
