Ask the Pastor, May 3rd

Enjoy this question. You can submit your questions for Pastor Blake at FBCedmond.org/askpastor. 1. I have a question about a situation I am struggling with and how I apply scripture to it. My sister's wedding and bridal shower are coming up and I am unsure if I should attend. She has already gotten married (due to current issues such as covid) but is choosing to do the whole wedding ordeal at a later time, which I completely understand and have no issue with. What I am struggling with is that she has chosen to deceive some of the people, making them think she is unmarried and getting married on her wedding date. I know it's a "white lie", but the Bible doesn't make a distinction between types of deception, and she has a history of being a pathological liar sadly. I love my sister and want to be there but am not sure if I would be condoning deception. Ephesians 5 has been leaving me feeling convicted where it speaks of not partaking with those who speak deception and instead of exposing them. I would like to know if attending/helping is "partaking". ...

Enjoy these questions this week. You can submit your questions for Pastor Blake at FBCedmond.org/askpastor. 1. Can you explain Matthew 7:6? I read in one commentary that you shouldn't waste time on persons who are not open to hearing God's Word. Does that mean we are to just give up on them? That somehow doesn't seem right. Maybe the next time we talk to them, they will be more open. I'd hate to give up on anyone. 2. Biblically, can women be ordained? Can women be pastors just not senior pastors? 3. What is the purpose of ordination? Is it a biblical requirement for a pastor to be ordained? ...

Ask the Pastor, April 19th

Enjoy these questions this week. You can submit your questions for Pastor Blake at FBCedmond.org/askpastor. 1. In Revelation 20:2 the Scriptures teach that Satan was bound for 1,000 years, which I believe to be a representation of the church age. How would you explain 2 Corinthians 4:4 when Rev 20:3 seems to indicate Satan's inability to deceive the nations while he is bound? 2. Please explain Proverbs 16:4. Also, I recently went to an 80th birthday party, when the person got up to make a speech, he said the greatest thing a person should know is how to forgive people. I agree with the statement that we should forgive others, but shouldn’t the greatest thing a person should know is to have Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior? 3. My husband and I have been coming to First Baptist for a few weeks and we are really enjoying it. We are both born-again Christians and have been looking for a new church home. We are both divorced and have been married to each other for almost two years. Neither of us initiated the divorce from our former spouses. We got into a pretty heated discussion last night about Romans 7. He believes 100% everything in the Bible to be true, as do I, but, I believe things change and the time period in which it was written has to be considered. So, I asked the question, "do you think I am an adulteress even though my ex-husband left me? He is still alive and I am remarried." The KJV clearly states that makes me an adulteress." He would only say "if it is in the Bible ...
