How do I take every thought captive? Why does the New Testament talk about “religion” in a positive and negative light? The churches I’ve attended make me feel inferior for not speaking in tongues. What should I do?

Are there good qualities in people before they’re saved? What if you’re struggling with sin when you die? Do you go to Hell?

Can you elaborate on the reason why we don’t need to recite the Lord’s Prayer? Why are there so many denominations? It seems like we should be finding our identity in Christ instead.

How does God view the church today? Does He see us as lazy, falling asleep, and passive? The Lord’s Prayer says one must ask for forgiveness. Is this the way for believers today to continually be more forgiven? Why does the prayer sound so conditional?
