Christians are told to desire spiritual gifts and to have the gifts of the Spirit. What are they? How are they granted? What about faith, knowledge, wisdom, prophecy, dreams, healings, tongues, and love? What gifts are the most important for a Christian to develop?
The Apostle Paul wrote that the mystery of lawlessness existed in his day, but in the end times the 'man of sin,' the 'son of perdition' would rise up. Why will the world tolerate this? What about signs and lying wonders, economic blackmail, and persecutions? Why is the mystery of iniquity? Do most professing Christian faiths practice the 'mystery of lawlessness'?
Why is there still a controversy about how to count to Pentecost and can that problem be solved?
Dr. Thiel continues the series of going through answering questions that were commonly posed to the old Worldwide Church of God. Using a binder that many speakers were given by that church that contained standardized letters that were sent to answer questions, Dr. Thiel answers them.

One group that held to the practices and doctrines of the apostles, with another group incorporating non-biblical traditions and practices. Early theological writers identified the two major groups in the second century.
Jesus died for our sins. Do you know what the Bible says sin is? Can you overcome sin? What if you have failed in the past? How should you handle various temptations? Does the Bible teach us how to overcome sin? Is there a weight-loss secret that can help? Are Christians supposed to overcome in this age? Can the Holy Days, like the Days of Unleavened Bread, assist us in learning how to overcome sin?
Is everything random? Or is there a cause for every effect? How does the Book of Genesis begin? There were two trees in the Garden of Eden that humanity was to chose between, and it chose the one the serpent promoted. Has that been the case with the bulk of humanity since? Are there only two ways? The way or GIVE and the way of GET? The way of truth and the way of lies? God's way or the way of the knowledge of good and evil?
