Questions2

Our entire study tonight answered submitted questions including:

  1. Why do we wish the holy spirit to the priest in the Mass and not to us?
  2. Why do priests not marry?
  3. Was Jesus married?
  4. Why are some Christians allowed to divorce and remarry while others are not?

Thus there is no handout.

Most questions were asked from a Catholic perspective but we have attempted to shape the answers to be relevant to all.

Foundations of Bible Study - Understanding the Plan of God

The first half of this study addresses questions asked after the previous study, viz., 

  1. Do we do good because we have to or because we want to and when do we know we are being hypocritical?
  2. Making it practical
  3. Why do we not NEED to understand the Bible?
  4. Do soldiers in war commit sin?
  5. Does it mean if we are not perfect, we cannot go to Heaven?

The second half introduces the need to understand the plan God is undertaking in order to understand the Bible, make Christianity relevant, and create a sense of repentance.
