The Bible Line - January 5, 2021
Molly, Beaufort, SC - One thing I have been hearing so much from my Christian and non-Christian friends is that we need to separate church from state and it's even what the bible says when I ask them to show me where it does say that they most often point to Matthew 22:17-21. I was just wondering what does the bible say about church and state, should there be a separation as they believe and are they interpreting what Jesus was saying correctly?
Matthew R., Beaufort, SC - I'd like to thank you for your program and answering our Father's call and feeding His people. Grace called me to accepted Jesus when I was 12 years old and I'm now 54 and sadly have seen that often people who may be willing to die for Jesus find it much harder to live for Jesus. Lately I've spent many years moving and relocating due to the often short term contracts I work as an engineer and so I've found tuning into your program a God send. My question concerns the vaccines that are being released for Covid-19,.. I recently listened to an interview with a someone in the medical community that as part of the process for engineering the vaccines that stem cells and most notably those harvested from abortion or otherwise related fetuses are used in the development of the vaccines. Have you heard of this and if this is the case,.. what would be your guidance for Christians in taking the vaccine?
Sandy, Beaufort, SC - I've read a lot about the COVID vaccine. I see that two of them have some aborted parts. How is a Christian able to support this?
Alberto, Savannah, GA - In Genesis chapter 6 what proof is there that the sons of God (the Nephilim) were able to procreate with the daughters of man?
Bonnie, Bluffton, SC - Were the original Biblical scrolls written on both sides of the parchment? My question is based on based on Zech 5:1-4 "Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying scroll. 2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I answered, "I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits." 3 Then he said to me, "This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land; surely everyone who steals will be purged away according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side"
David, Hilton Head Island, SC - We attend church at Grace Community Church on Hilton Head Island, but I often listen to your sermons on Search the Scriptures as I study the bible. We are currently studying the book of Daniel and I have a question relative to Ch. 9, v. 25 that I wonder if you would answer for me. You indicate the period of the 69 Sevens (483 years) begins upon the issuance of the decree of Artaxerxes to rebuild the City of Jerusalem in 445 BC and culminates in 32 AD with the death of Jesus. I’m sure I’m missing some important piece of knowledge, but the period from 445 BC to 32 AD seems to 477 years, not 483 years. Will you help me reconcile this information?
Alberto, Savannah, GA - The Bible says that Christ died for our past, present & future sins; that God will never hold them against us. Why, as believers, will we have to give an account of our lives . I know it is about our service to the Lord and not whether we go to heaven or not. Still WHY do we have to give an account of our lives if our sins were taken care of at Calvary by Christ?
Anthony, Beaufort, SC - During the time of slavery in America, was that a trial for black people or was it disobedience or was it just God dealing with both the just and the unjust in the same manner?
