Cybele Liana Go
- If a person’s spouse divorces him and marries another, does that person commit adultery by marrying another? – Yes, biblically speaking. But today’s society allows it. However, I still stand to the teaching of the Bible rather than to the permissive will of the government. Only when the spouse died, that is the time one can re-marry. Divorced are allowed to protect the wife from the unfaithfulness of the husband or vice-versa but not allowed to re-marry.
- 2. Did the Catholic priests have covert motives in the development and acceptance of traditions? – I do not think that Roman Catholic priests had any covert motives in following traditions. As we termed it, “traditions” meaning it is a way of life. But in the treatment of tradition as equal in authority with the Bible is unacceptable. I have to check it out if there are covert motives… (very good question)
- If a saved man who follows the Lord kills himself in the spur of a moment will he go to hell? – What is the requirement of one to go to heaven? It is only by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. (Follow this theological thought) As long as the person have faith that Jesus Christ is his savior and Lord, his sins will no longer be taken against him, thus he will go to heaven. However, is having faith made you eligible to sin? Of course not, a person who genuinely received Jesus as savior and Lord will be at the mercy of Jesus Christ forever and will do what pleases the Lord.
- 4. If a person is saved, yet fails to do anything important for God, does he go to heaven or hell? – Salvation is not by works; again, it is by faith alone. (Remember the Five Solas? Follow my explanation on question number 3.)
- What is ex opere operato? And what does it do? – Ex Opere Operato means that if the communicative nature of the Christian sacraments is acknowledged, a sacrament properly performed is seen to convey God’s grace independently of the faith or moral character of the celebrant or recipients. Its value springs from its divine institution, “from the work already done” (Latin ex opere operato), in which the sacrament participates. We reject this idea.
