What is the meaning of “high standing” and “great confidence” in 1 Timothy 3:13? What is meant by Matthew 22:14: “For many are called, but few are chosen.” I’m having a hard time with when to keep the Sabbath. I’ve had horrible thoughts about the Lord, and it’s hard for me to believe I’m forgiven for those blasphemous thoughts. What do I do? I serve as a pastor and other leaders in my church oppress me. What should I do? How do I communicate modesty to my daughter without being legalistic? What is the unpardonable sin and have I committed it unknowingly? What is Paul referring to as “self-control” in the passage about marriage?
