I’ve always wanted to ask Doug Wilson…

Do you have a question that you’d like to ask Pastor Wilson? If so, we’d love to hear it. While we don’t anticipate being able to get to them all, we’ll grab selected questions each week and see what he has to say. The more your question asks for principals (rather than situation specific advice), the more helpful it will be to a broad audience and therefore the more likely we are to throw it at Doug.  So go ahead, ask by submitting a comment to this post (and feel free to leave the contact info blank – it is not required)…

    Can the unreached person ever be saved by following the law of their conscience, or to put it in a familiar way, can the person on the an isolated island ever be saved assuming they have never heard the gospel preached? And, Since Christ could come at any moment, should Christians be motivated by a sense of urgency to reach as many people as possible with the gospel? If not what should motivate Christians to preach the gospel? Please feel free to reword for clarity and brevity if needed.

  2. Veronica says:

    If God always follows the rules why is there a virgin birth?

  3. Matt says:

    Pastor Wilson,
    I greatly appreciate your service, leadership and wisdom shown to countless believers over the years (myself included). I am a local minister within the Assemblies of God, and struggling with certain stances the A/G take, and whether I can agree with the Fundamental Truths. Specifically I am referring to their stance on women in ministry, and what the Bible states with regards to it. I have read much of what you have taught with regards to marriage and the home, but am wondering whether the arguments made within the A/G’s position papers have any credence. I realize that you get potentially thousands of questions, so you may never get to this, but if someone could get a biblical critique sometime to the link below, I would greatly appreciate it.

  4. Lillian Crossan says:

    Should an American pastor publicly vow from the pulpit that he will never address politics from the pulpit, that he will only preach the Gospel?

  5. David says:

    Pastor Wilson,
    Are professional fighters (boxers, mixed martial artists, Muay Thai boxers, etc) violating the sixth commandment when fighting each other?

  6. judah lothbrook says:

    does anyone else think it’s weird when paul says in I think romans or Corinthians “I say this, not the lord, but I,” – like, doesn’t that mean that part of scripture is uninspired because it is not god speaking but if it is god speaking then it is god lying because it claims to be paul and more importantly, “not the lord”.

  7. Milena says:


    I was trying to look where I can make a question, is this the right place? Thanks

  8. Marcela says:

    My question is this:

    I became I reformed Christian with my family about 3 years ago, now I had been studying the doctrine of baptism for about a year trying to understand the covenantal theology and its relationship with the children of believers. I became to the conclusion (By the grace of God) that I am agree with infant baptism. My family (dad, mom and sister) believes in credo baptism, I am not married but I am 30 years old and I am member of the Reformed Baptist Church. Should I tell my pastors about my pedo-Baptist believes or because my father is my headship should I stay where I am and not saying anything about it?

    Thanks a lot
