Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

If Singleness Is a Blessing, Why Does It Feel like a Curse?

Episode 836 Show Notes 

From the Show

There is nothing wrong with desiring to be married…but if we grow bitter and angry with the Lord, that can be an issue. Often times in the Christian life, when things don’t go our way…that’s when we have to continue to walk with the Lord.

If Singleness Is a Blessing, Why Does It Feel like a Curse?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I have been going to a non-denominational church but I was raised as a Roman Catholic. I am struggling between idolizing Jesus and Mary and on the other hand just being devoted to the Word. What should I do?
  2. I am a single woman who has never been married but I have always longed to be married. I love the Lord with all my heart. I am going to be 63 in a couple weeks, is it wrong that I am not content in my singleness? As I get older this desire is only growing.
  3.  Does Galatians 2:20 refer to baptism, or something more spiritual?
  4. In what ways can a congregation support their pastor, particularly in these times that we are currently living in?
  5. In a previous episode Adriel said that there is no indication in the Bible that Satan hears us. But in Acts 16:18, Paul spoke to the slave girl who was possessed by an evil spirit and Paul commanded that spirit to leave and it departed. And in Mark 16, Jesus said that he has given us authority to cast out demons in the name of Jesus Christ. Christians do have an authority to cast out demons, so we can speak to the devil to cast him, right?
  6. Luke knew that crucifixion was a Roman form of execution by placing someone on a cross. So why would Luke refer to it as Jesus being hung on a tree in Acts 5:30; 10:39?
