I thought it might be both interesting and practical to put up a Q and A forum. I think it would be good for pastors and mature Christians to give answers to certain questions that many christians might ask. This could deal with a myriad of differing issues. And if someone wishes to ask me a question I will try to answer the question(s) and even include the question and answer in a video or audio file, although time considerations have to be taken into account. And others can attempt to provide answers too. Below I have provided a link to one of my audios, wherein I attempt to answer three questions:
(keep in mind that even though I am logged into Holypal, I might not even be home, so it might take hours for me to post a response to something. Others are free to answer questions too..)

[David realized that the LORD was affirming him as king over Israel, and that his government was being exalted in order to benefit his people Israel. But while he was living in Jerusalem, David married more wives and fathered more sons and daughters. Here's a list of the children whom he fathered while in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet, Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, Elishama, Beeliada, and Eliphelet.
God gave Solomon wisdom and great discernment. His insights were as numerous as sand on the seashore. Solomon was wiser than any of the eastern leaders and wiser than anyone in Egypt. He was wiser than anyone of his day—wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, Heman, and wiser than Mahol's sons Calcol and Darda. His reputation was known throughout the surrounding nations. Solomon wrote 3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs. He described trees—everything from cedars that grow in Lebanon to hyssop that grows on a garden wall. He described animals, birds, reptiles, and fish. People came from everywhere to hear Solomon's advice. Every king on the earth heard of his wisdom. ]

I did not see this entry. I wonder what you and others think of the small book of Jude and which "Jude" is the author?
My answer to you Hannah: Despite some controversy, I think one should simply accept that it is, as the Epistle indicates. It is Jude the brother of James (Ya'akov), and slave of Yeshua. This probably indicates Jude is a brother of the Lord. The production of this small Epistle has been dated by good scholars from 65 to about 90 AD.
Hello Thomas. I have not listened to my own audios on Higher Praise Tube for awhile and it is possible that my views have shifted a we bit. I am just a mere man with numerous faults and my theology can evolve and it surely will. To me the Church, the body of believers, are to be somewhat militant, stern, aggressive, and ready to defend the gospel, but with a measure of gentleness as we promote it. The Church Triumphant is a Victorious church, although not all things are consummated or recognized yet on Earth, but in Heaven, the church is already victorious!!!
Question for today. Why do people read Gentile Bibles?
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel; for it is the power of God unto life, to all who believe in it; whether first they are of the Jews, or whether they are of the Gentiles.
Question for today was Abraham a righteous man or was he a gentile (pagan)?
Abraham, (Abram) from his early childhood, questioned the faith of his father, (an idol merchant) sought the truth and came to believe that the entire universe was the work of a single Creator.
[Abraham (Abram) was a gentile (pagan) as every human being on earth was until God made a covenant with Abraham's descendants who where the descendants of his grandson Jacob later named Israel.]
Exo 19:4-8 'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself. Now if you will pay careful attention to what I say and keep my covenant, then you will be my own treasure from among all the peoples, for all the earth is mine; and you will be a kingdom of priests for me, a nation set apart.' These are the words you are to speak to the people of Israel." Moses came, summoned the leaders of the people and presented them with all these words which the Lord had ordered him to say. All the people answered as one, "Everything the Lord has said, we will do." Moses reported the words of the people to the Lord.
[Because Abraham (Abram) believed in the Lord it was credited to him as righteousness.]
Gen 15:1 Some time later the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: "Don't be afraid, Abram. I am your protector; your reward will be very great." Abram replied, "Lord, God, what good will your gifts be to me if I continue childless; and Eliezer Damascus inherits my possessions? You haven't given me a child," Abram continued, "so someone born in my house will be my heir." But the word of the Lord came to him: "This man will not be your heir. No, your heir will be a child from your own body." Then he brought him outside and said, "Look up at the sky, and count the stars — if you can count them! Your descendants will be that many!" He believed in the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
