Charles, St Helena Island, SC - After listening to your message on tithing I have a question. I now have a better understanding of tithing and it's importance. Also, I know how the borrower is a slave to the lender... with that being said I am trying to pay down some debts. I am currently giving an offering every month but I am unable to give my full tithe. Would God want me to give my full tithe and pay the debts with what is left over or concentrate on paying the debts off so I would have the money for the full tithe? Thanks so much for your guidance!

Adriana A, Naples, FL - First let me say thank you so much for what you do, my husband and I have grown so much through your ministry. My question is on the passage in Genesis I have been re-reading on Lot’s salvation. Was Lot saved? When I read this passage I get a little confused, I know that salvation is not lost, but I wonder was Lot really saved due to his lifestyle & how he responds to even the angels when they go to his family. He was clearly a lukewarm Christian if so, but someone told me that Lot was saved due to Abraham’s intercession on his behalf. What is the biblical perspective on this? Was Lot saved because of Abraham? Or was it because he was truly saved? I know no one can save you but Christ alone. Hope that made sense! Thank you!

Rick C., Lancaster, PA - Will you please explain Sabbath- keeping for Christians today. There seem to be different views today. Some use Colossians 2:16-17 and Romans 14:5 where Sabbath-keeping is a matter of spiritual freedom, not a command from God. They also state that in the early chapters of Acts, the early Christians were Jews, and when the Gentiles began to receive the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, the Jewish Christians weren't sure which traditions of the Mosaic Law they (the Gentile Christians) should obey (Acts 15: 19-20). In these verses, the Sabbath day was not mentioned for the Gentile converts. The Sabbath Day was set aside as a day of rest, and Christians used that day to come together and worship. I have always felt that this is still applicable for today, but others point to some of the above verses and say this 4th commandment is not applicable for us today. Could you clear this up for me?

A lot of preachers say that one can lose their salvation and they quote the book of Revelation 3:5 that "he who comes in a garment of white, I will not remove his name from the book of life." Please explain.

A listener's uncle is a devout Catholic. He believes that there is only one church...and he wonders how God allows all these different denominations?
