Well. that is a question folk have at times given differing answers too. I personally believe the bible is very clear on the answer, but I am not writing this blog to answer the question directly. rather I am remembering what Mr. Hugh Black, one of the founders of the Struthers group of churches used to say when someone asked him that question. He would ask them a question back “Why do you want to know?” Then he would say, “Abide in Jesus, keep following Him.” To me, there is wisdom in that.
Love it! For years I’ve taught that; the Scriptures never asks us to entertain the question. Mr. Hugh Black’s response is wise advice indeed.
Many blessings my friend
