Faith Related Q and A
In Leviticus God seems to be condoning slavery. Isn't slavery sinful?
Jesus says, "Surely I am with you always to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28). He also says, "Where two or three come together, there I am with them" (Matthew 18). What's the difference between these? Is the first talking about our individual relationship with Christ, and the second talking about Christ's relationship with the church? I know as omnipresent true God, Christ is always with me, even when I am not with another person. Can you please clarify the difference? Thanks.
One of my co-workers (80 years old) is an atheist and also a former Catholic priest. I try to be polite to him in our discussions about non-religious and non-political topics. However, because I'm a conservative and strong in my faith, he at best tolerates me. Today he asked about my thoughts on Donald Trump as President. I responded by saying that I really only put my trust in God as my Lord and Savior and not so much to those who hold public office. He asked me why I believe in God. I told him that we should discuss this while not at work, as it's not a short discussion and that work is not the place to talk about religion. I did tell him that I will not apologize for my conservative or Christian values. The only thing he told me was that my being near him with my religious beliefs really bothered him. Am I correct in thinking that because he has turned his back on our Lord that his heart has been hardened, much like Pharaoh's heart was? Would being in his presence endanger my faith? Or, would it be best that I just pray for this individual and let the Holy Spirit work in him? I'd hate to see him be condemned to an eternity of separation from our Lord, knowing there was something I could do to help, such as prayer. As I've learned, the nature of the dead is to stay dead and I'm afraid that he is spiritually dead.
