The Bible Line - November 15, 2022



Greg, Florida - Why, when those in heaven are always described as being clothed in light or wings or robes or garments etc. did God have pre-fall Adam and Eve inhabiting Eden unclothed? Also, as a Christian how can I know the difference between Gods’ chastisement and a satanic attack?

Shelly, Columbia, SC - Do you know anything about Courtney Doctor?
I teach a neighborhood Bible Study and someone gave me a book by her on Romans to consider for a future study. I have never heard of her and I am very leery about book studies by authors I am not familiar with. I normally teach from the Word of God, I know that is Truth!

Amelia, Beaufort, SC - I recently witnessed an interesting conversation in one of my college classes. A student and the professor, both aged mid 40s-50s, were talking about the Bible, in front of the whole class. (This happens more often than I used to think for a secular school.) They were talking about how the New Testament and the Old Testament are about two different Gods. They meant that the OT is about Yahweh and the NT is about Jesus. The student went on to say that the NT was written for slaves, poor folk, women, etc. to get them to comply to orders, and the professor agreed. The rest of the class nodded in agreement with the professor, as usual. At this point I kind of tuned myself out like I do in most cases that this type of thing happens. The topic of the day was already surrounding CRT so I wasn’t too involved in the class discussion to begin with. But I typically tune out like this so I don’t spew or make a fool of myself accidentally because this Bible bashing happens at least once a week in any one of my five classes! I was wondering how you would respond to these things as a student? I did say, “I’ve never heard that before.. That’s a new one for me.” I wanted to say, “have you even read the Bible?!” but I think that would’ve been a bit rude. I know they are wrong and especially when they say there’s two different Gods in the Testaments, but I also know that these people don’t admit to believing in any of it, especially how the Trinity works. So would me saying anything even make a difference? In most cases I don’t speak up when this sort of thing happens because I know I would be giving my pearl to swine. So how would I go about entering that conversation to speak the truth?

Amber and her Daughter Lorelia - ask Will we have the same hair in Heaven?

Carol - If a soul goes to hell which those that do, that in the lake of fire the soul will no longer exist after sometime because fire would burn it up.  Is that true? 

Scott, Beaufort, SC - This is a question in regards to the two resurrections mentioned in scripture. Jesus mentions these two resurrections in John 5:28-29 and refers to them as "the resurrection of life", and "the resurrection of condemnation" In Luke 14:14 Jesus refers to the first resurrection as the "resurrection of the just" In Revelation chapter 20 - we find some key information regarding the two resurrections. -- we find out that among those who partake in the first resurrection must have gone through the tribulation since they were beheaded for their witness, and did not take the mark of the beast. (Revelation 20:4) -- we also see a clear reference to this being the First resurrection in both verses 5 and 6 of chapter 20. We see Paul comforting the the church of Corinth in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 in which he says "Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." In 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 we see another reference to the resurrection where Paul states that "the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." My question is this: It would appear that Paul is referencing the resurrection of the just in the aforementioned verses - and that he ties both to us being caught up in the air to meet the Lord. But if Revelation 20 is correct in stating that the First resurrection contains those who were beheaded and didn't take the mark, how could that resurrection take place before the events of the tribulation? Is there somehow a resurrection before the first resurrection?

Woody - 1 Samuel chapter 16 and 17 it seems are switched around. 

Larry, East Waterboro, ME - What is your opinion of Dr. Andrew Farley?
