Read thoughtful responses to a wide assortment of questions from Billy Graham’s My Answer column and other resources.

God Made You Unique

Why did God make me such a shy person? I want to make friends and be accepted by people, but whenever I get in a crowd I just freeze up and don't even talk to anyone. Sometimes I wish I was someone else.

How Honest Can We Be with God?

How honest can we be with God? I don't want Him to get upset with me, but to be honest I'm kind of angry at God because He doesn't seem to be doing anything about my problems. What would happen to me if I told Him?

Seek God's Comfort as You Grieve

Is it wrong for me to ask God to let me die? My husband passed away a few months ago, and all I want to do is go to Heaven and be with him. I can't tell you how empty my life is without him. We'd been married over forty-eight years.

God Hears Your Prayers

You often tell people to ask Jesus to come into their lives with a simple prayer of faith. But how do I know if I'm saying the right words? Maybe I haven't said enough, or I've said the wrong things. How can I be sure God has heard me?

There Are Many Ways to Grow Closer to God

Why do I feel near to God one day, but then the next day I'll feel like He doesn't even exist? I wish my spiritual life wasn't such a roller coaster. This isn't the way it's supposed to be, is it?

Open Your Eyes and See the Truth About Jesus

I grew up in a church-going family, but I'm having some real struggles with doubt. I'm in medical school studying to be a doctor, and I just can't bring myself to believe that Jesus came back from the dead. Things like that just don't happen.

Why Did Pontius Pilate Turn on Jesus?

I've always been puzzled by Pilate, the Roman governor who gave the order for Jesus to be executed. Didn't he say several times that he thought Jesus was innocent and shouldn't be put to death? Why then did he allow it?

The Symbolism of the Cross

I am a foreign student here, but I do not come from a Christian country. I am curious about your religion. Why do churches have a cross on top of them, and why do some people wear a cross? What does it mean?

The Story of Judas Is a Warning

I've never really understood why Judas betrayed Jesus. After all, he witnessed Jesus' miracles and heard His teaching just like the other disciples, and yet he ended up turning against Him. It just doesn't make sense.

God can bring good even out of tragedy

My best friend was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident a few weeks ago, and it's really hit me hard. I've never given any thought to death, but now I can't avoid it. Frankly, I'm scared, because I know I'm not ready to die. How can I be ready?

Jesus Stayed Faithful to His Call

Did Jesus know He was probably going to be put to death? Couldn't He have done something to avoid it and keep on living?

Jesus' Mission on Earth Was Clear

Wasn't Jesus actually a failure? After all, at the beginning of His last week on earth He hoped people would make Him into their king, but by the end of the week everyone had turned against Him, and they ended up killing Him.
