Q. I know the Scriptures teach that Jesus was sinless, but could he have sinned if he had chosen to do so?
A. “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:14-15). Jesus was tempted, but he did not sin. Could He have sinned? I find it difficult to believe that Jesus would understand the problem of our sin if He could not have sinned. Yes, I believe He could have sinned.

Q. I’m anxious about the future, what shall I do?
A. You are speaking about a common problem of our time about which we need to think. A person who is not a Christian has great cause for anxiety as he or she should be desperately afraid of the future. The Scripture says that “God is angry with the wicked every day” (Psalm 7:11). The proper attitude for a sinner is anxiety, and this will continue until he or she believes the Gospel and comes to Christ.

One who is a Christian, however, is told, “Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6,7). For the Christian then, the solution to anxiety is earnest prayer that is followed by thanksgiving for divine deliverence. This, to the committed Christian, will produce “the peace of God” and this is wonderful beyond description. It is a mistake to try to solve any problem without God. It is the beginning of wisdom to trust God and look for His guidance into a solution for you.

“He that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
