In 4 min., Greg answers questions about how Mary got pregnant, deaconesses, the definition of being human, and worship songs.


  • Did God introduce a y chromosome to Mary’s egg to make her become pregnant, or did He place a whole embryo in Mary without using her egg?
  • Does 1 Timothy 3:11 refer to deacons’ wives or to women serving as deaconesses? Is “deaconess” a valid church office?
  • How would you define a human being? Culture often says to be human requires consciousness, heartbeat, emotions, etc.
  • If corporate songs with personal pronouns are wrong, why are there Psalms addressed to the choirmaster that have personal pronouns?
