    Is It Wrong for Christians to Be Rich?

    Is It Wrong for Christians to Be Rich?

    In the Gospels, Jesus tells a rich young nobleman to sell all of his personal possessions and give the proceeds to the poor, promising, "you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me” (Matthew 19:21, NKJV). Jesus then told His disciples, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (19:24, NKJV).

    Should we interpret this passage to mean that money and possessions will keep us out of Heaven? Dr. David K. Bernard looks at what the Bible says about the spiritual dangers of material wealth and the attitude Christians should display toward money.

    Why Did God Allow Confusing Bible Verses?

    Why Did God Allow Confusing Bible Verses?

    Why did God allow "confusing" verses to be included in the Bible? How can sincere people read the same scriptures and arrive at wildly different conclusions about their meaning? Why didn’t God give us His Word in a form that would be clear to every reader?

    Dr. David K. Bernard responds by reminding us of what Jesus said about the search for truth and why it is sometimes hidden from those who hear and read the Scriptures.

What is the significance of this practice, and where did it originate? Dr. David K. Bernard explains the laying on of hands and how its proper use can benefit the church and the believer.

Great Resource for all Christians

One of the greatest resources for Pastors. Dr Bernard answers real life issues in a informative and concise manner. The best part of this podcast is that answers are very Bible based. I don’t miss an episode and they are always great to share with people who may have questions.
