  1. When I was born again I was told that’s all I needed to assure my place in heaven. Now the more I read the more I learn much more is required to reap reward in heaven and on earth. Also some receive greater reward in heaven than others. I feel lied too and always trying to justify contradictions of scripture s.

  2. I was listening to one of your talk shows and it hit me… I am from Utah, and I was prompted by God to move to WY where my sister lives. My sister is Christian, I started going to church with her. To make a long story short I am disabled with a brain injury, I feel that my relationship, faith, prayers,meditation, etc. with God has really helped me in my journey. I listen to hymns, your talk show, I feel I get so much about God. I am helping a deaf person to understand the bible. The speaking language is so different from sign language. I want him to comprehen all these…. I am hoping that you might offer a talk show in ASL (American Sign Language)?

    1. Thank you very much for being a listener and for telling us a little of your story. Your struggles must be very difficult. This past Sunday’s lesson on Unshakeable Faith might be a good one to listen to because it sounds like you already have built a strong foundation in your life and look to help others in their journey. You are very inspirational! We love the idea of having a program in ASL, but because CQ is only a radio program and not on television or filmed on the internet, we aren’t sure how this would be accomplished. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated! – Christian Questions
