As a Bible-teaching ministry, we receive many questions by phone, email, and letter. This series is an attempt to answer some of the most common questions we receive.
Whenever we come across passages of Scripture that seem to contradict each other the first thing to do is read the verses in context. Context can alter how we understand individual words.
