"God's Got A Problem" is clarion call to the contemporary church to wake up and to grow up to God's plan for getting back the stolen earth and its nations.

God is calling us to pick up the pieces, to heal the wounds and meet violence with forgiveness. There is no good violence. No moral high ground will ever be claimed solely by military victories.

It causes us to get into trouble and brings pain. What good is it to gain the whole world now — whatever it is we think we want — and forfeit our souls’ intimacy with God (Mark )? God wants us to learn how to follow him and put down our demanding selves — to calm that screaming child in us. Question: "What does the Bible say about Christian mothers?" Answer: Being a mother is a very important role that the Lord chooses to give to many women. A Christian mother is told to love her children (Titus ), in part so that she does not bring reproach on the Lord and on the Savior whose name she bears. Question: "What does the Bible say about pandemic diseases/sicknesses?" Answer: Various outbreaks of pandemic diseases, such as the coronavirus, have prompted many to ask why God allows—or even causes—pandemic diseases and whether such illnesses are a sign of the end times. The Bible, particularly the Old Testament, describes numerous occasions when God brought plagues and . John Piper is founder and teacher of and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary.
