Two weeks ago I asked a question. To date I have not heard a reply. Am choosing to believe that I made a mistake on entering my email. Regardless of the truth I will hold to that belief, and shall ask the question again. How did the crucifixion taken place as given in the Bible? I understand Peter being told to put away his sword after the garden confrontation, but why would he deny him? How could the disciples just allow their master of three years to die without intervention or joining him on Golgotha? My failure to accept the crucifixion precludes me from being called a Christian. Accordingly I can not be "saved". It is a source of great pain.

Last evening Pastor Mark spoke about young children who go to heaven before the age of accountability. He said it is not real clear when that age is exactly. My sister died from cancer at the age of eight. She went through her 'First Communion' prior to her death. Her communion portrait hung over the fireplace for decades. I was wondering if it is a safe assumption that she hadn't truly reached the age of accountability(despite the Catholic ritual) and most likely in heaven?

Hello, I have a 2 part question regarding Acts 16:31 which talks about a jailer who asked paul what he must do to be saved. Paul replied by saying that you must believe in the Lord Jesus and you and your household will be saved. Don't you have to do more than just believe? Don't you have to accept Jesus into your heart? Also, when it says your household will be saved, is Paul meaning that by being a witness to your family they may be saved or is he saying that once you become saved, your household automatically becomes saved? Answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I am having questions about eternal security. I am having trouble understanding the passages: First John 3:6-11 and how they relate to eternal security. I am grateful for some answers and insight.
If a person claims to be saved but has continually and knowingly lied to help provide for their family because they 'know' that finances will not provide for them, and also knowingly acknowledges that they don't completely believe that God will provide or verbally does but not in practice... are these people truly saved, or just sinning? This is something that has happened daily for years and years and the person has been 'saved' for over 25 years.
Does a false convert know they are not born again? I it possible to ask Jesus to be your Savior, but you didn't do it right or something? If you still keep sinning after you ask Jesus to be your savior does it mean you were a false convert even though you wish you didn't sin?

Is the forgiveness we receive from Christ all encompassing? My mind tells me the Omnipotent Creator of time and the universe has known from the beginning of time all the sins I would ever commit. So when I asked Jesus for forgiveness, I received it for the sins I had commmitted up to that time along with sins I won't commit until I'm 75.
This is probably a dumb question. My deaf son who is 13 years old shares the Gospel with other deaf children at his school. I know it says in Romans 10:9-10 that in order to be saved you must not only believe, but CONFESS with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Well, my son's friends cannot speak at all! How does confessing with your mouth apply to the person who cannot speak?

Question: Do we chose to be saved or does God save us whether or not we want to saved? Maybe another way of asking the question, how much free will do we have in the saving process? Yet, another form of the question, if we are not be saved then it is only because God chose not to save us? John 6:44 would seem to indicate we do not have choice. Ephesians 2:5 would indicate that only god can make us alive if we are did, so if he chooses not to revive then we cannot be saved. But II Peter 3:9 indicated that God "does not wish anyone to perish by all come to repentance". John 3:16-17, 6:40, 7;38, all seem to indicate that 'whoever" and 'everyone" who believes will be saved. This would indicated that it is man's choice to obey or not obey.
