Hebrews 6:4

Hebrews 6:4-6 causes me to have doubts about eternal salvation. Can you help me by explaining this passage and others?

Church Volunteers & Alcohol

What would your stance be on volunteer leaders in the church drinking alcohol in moderation?

Is divorce biblically accepted?

The question was asked: Pastor, you stated that divorce is never acceptable under any circumstances. What would you say to spouses who have physically abusive partners, or to those in marriages where one spouse is abusing a child in the home? Would divorce still not be an option?

Romans 7

Romans 7:9 talks about being alive apart from the law, and when the commandment came, sin became alive and I (Paul) died. But sin existed before the commandments were given, so why would Paul say this?

A Holy Life

It sounds as if you're saying a Christian does not even need to attempt to live a holy and pleasing life for the Lord, since any effort is futile or works-based. Can you explain how that aligns with Romans 6:1-2?

Rich = Sin?

When you say that desire to be rich is a sin, are you saying that that desire cannot be from God? What if I am called to be a good Samaritan?

The Spirit of Jesus

Where did the Spirit of Jesus go when He died on the cross? He told the criminal, "Today you will be with Me in Paradise."

Workers of Iniquity

Psalm 5:5 says God hates workers of iniquity. Please explain this.
