Questions and Answers



Question: I was recently told that it is wrong to use words like "gosh" or "gee." Are these words really all that bad?

Answer: We often hear words like "gosh," "gee," and similar words in conversation today. Although they may sound innocent enough, we should avoid using them. Why? Because these words are euphemisms for the names of God and Jesus Christ. A euphemism is "the substitution of a mild, indirect, or vague expression for one thought to be offensively blunt or harsh" (Random House Dictionary of the English Language).

Question: Is the "gospel" preached by modern Christianity the same gospel Jesus Christ preached and commissioned His New Testament Church to proclaim to the world?

Answer: You may be surprised to learn that most professing Christians have never actually heard the true gospel of Jesus Christ! Many have heard a message about Christ, but very few have heard the wonderful good news He announced. The "religious leaders" of Jesus’ day rejected that gospel—and crucified Him for preaching it.

The Sabbath, Holy Days and dietary laws are conspicuously absent, so why should today’s Christians observe them?

Question: In Matthew 12:31-32, Jesus spoke of an unpardonable sin. What is this sin, and why can it not be forgiven?
