  3. When we’ve got no-one else to talk to, can we talk to God, and is that praying?

  4. Jesus was a Jew, so how come Christians worship him?

  5. Is there any proof that Jesus existed?

  6. Why do we call Jesus the light?

    • Hi Ann
      Our world is beautiful, but it can also be a dark and horrible place due to people’s evil thoughts and actions. (Listening to the News will confirm this!)
      Jesus came from heaven, showing us what God is like, showing His love and teaching us how to be forgiven and how to live our lives.
      He and His message were like a bright, wonderful light from heaven.

  7. How old do you have to be to be a Christian?

  8. What did the Roman soldiers think about Jesus?

    • Hi Mark
      I expect many of them would have looked at Jesus with no feelings at all, because they were used to seeing people die.
      But we know that the Centurion at the cross suddenly saw Jesus differently (Mark 15:39), and I guess that there may have been one or two other soldiers who were challenged by what they saw and heard.

  9. What are the 4 reasons why christians should be baptized?

    • Hi Sarah, because:
      1) The Bible tells us to do it (Acts 2:38, etc)
      2) We get pleasure from God by obeying Him.
      3) Baptism is a good symbol of dying to ourselves and living to God and being washed clean by His Holy Spirit, so it helps us to understand these things better.
      4) Why 4 reasons? Hopefully these 3 answers are ok for you.

  10. What is holy communion?

    • Hi Julie
      A short question which has a long answer!
      On the evening that Jesus was betrayed (just before He was crucified) He had a meal with His disciples (called the ‘Last Supper).
      The bread they ate was a symbol of Jesus’ body which was to be a sacrifice to God to pay for all the wrong that we do.
      The wine they drank was a symbol of Jesus’ blood that was to be spilt the next day.
      Jesus’ death was nasty, but He willingly gave His life so that we could be forgiven by God.
      Holy Communion is another name for remembering this last supper.
      By us sharing the bread and wine together we show that we are trusting in what Jesus did that night.
      By believing in what Jesus did, God will allow us to be in heaven with Him forever.

  11. Why did God only give His Laws to Israel and not everyone else?

    • God had chosen the nation of Israel to be His people so that they would be responsible for preserving God’s Scriptures (the Old Testament of the Bible) down through history.
      But God has also given the basic requirements of His Law to everyone in the form of our conscience.
      Our conscience tells us what is wrong and right.
      Hope that helps

  12. Two robbers were crucified along with Jesus, does that mean when we wear a cross, that we worship them as well?

    • Hi Tim
      Many people wear crosses now, and many don’t believe in Jesus.
      Christians who wear a cross remember that Jesus, the sinless Son of God, paid the penalty for their sin on an instrument of torture (a cross).
      They know the difference between the two robbers and Jesus Christ.
      Bartholomew.
