I have a question about the things happening at Hillsong church where leaders being exposed for sin in their lives. Some christians tell me that Jesus said, “let him who is without sin cast the first stone” – that we shouldn’t judge anybody. And some draw parallels to King David and how he committed horrible sins but he is remembered as a man after God’s heart and how God has throughout history used broken sinful people for his kingdom. How do I balance this with the standard the New Testament puts on leaders in the church? 4. It doesn’t seem like many pastors teach on Revelation. What do you think? 5.

I have not always lived a straight and narrow Christian life. What do I do to forgive other people that judge me for who I am and how do I move forward in my life? 2. As Christians, should we no longer consider ourselves as “sinners”? 3. It seems like in genuine efforts to Biblically distinguish between the sexes, some churches subjugate women in ways that seems to quench their gifts, especially anywhere outside the home. I want to avoid falling into this situation. So, how can I distinguish between Christian men and communities that practice Biblical gender roles from those that more closely resemble male chauvinism? 4. How long did it take Noah to build the ark? 5. Would you be able to answer why so many preachers I listen to tell Christians to drop everything and follow the Lord with their money and time when they practically swim in wealth themselves? I’m struggling with this and hope you can help me. Today’s Offer Faith & Family Connection Request our latest special offers here or call 1-833-THE-CORE (833-843-2673) to request them by phone.
