1. Where does the name "Fuel" come from?
The dictionary definition of the word "fuel" is "something that nourishes, sustains or encourages; a stimulant." This perfectly describes what The Fuel Project is all about!
2. What does the logo represent?
A flame represents light and Christians are called to be light in a dark world. A flame also represents heat, which is a metaphor for passion and fervour. Christians are warned by God never to be luke-warm (apathetic). Hebrews 12:29 tells us that "God is a consuming fire" in his holiness and when the Holy Spirit arrived at Pentecost, it was marked by tongues of fire. So the flame conveys many important messages.
3. Can we make copies of DVDs to hand out for free?
The most important thing is that the information reaches as many people as possible and we'd hate for finances to be a barrier. However, it takes hours, weeks, months and even years of painstaking hard work to research, write and produce these materials. A single 5 minute video can often take days to put together. Furthermore, The Fuel Project simply needs financial support to survive and thrive. Every time a series is copied and distributed for free, we're deprived of valuable resources that would help us develop another project. In order to balance these two issues, the deal is that we would ask you to purchase as many copies of books and DVDs as you can afford to support the ministry, and then, having done so, we give you our blessing to make copies and distribute to friends and family members. How many copies you can afford is a matter for individual consciences before God and will vary from person-to-person.
4. Can I help translate the materials into other languages?
We often get offers from people who would like to translate the books and videos into other languages. Because we don't have the resources to do this in-house, we welcome these offers to help, but as Jesus said, "Don't begin until you count the cost!" (Luke 14:28). The truth is we must have had around 100 offers from volunteers over the years and every single one has underestimated the time and effort that goes into it, and has given up halfway through!
5. Where can I find the occult checklist mentioned in Know Your Enemy and Stay Free?
6. I have a problem with my DVD order. Can you fix it?
DVDs are manufactured and distributed by a third-party partner ministry called The Apologetics Group. Any questions regarding DVD orders can be directed to them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be glad to assist and answer any questions you may have.
7. What Bible translation do you use?
The New Living Translation (NLT) is the most frequently used version for its blend of accuracy and readability. The ESV is also used quite a bit. We use BibleGateway a lot to check multiple versions so you'll occasionally see others too.
8. Why did you quote from a Bible teacher I disagree with?
Quoting another teacher doesn't necessarily indicate approval of that person's entire ministry, or signify complete theological agreement. Indeed, sometimes the use of a quote doesn't even indicate approval of the quote! Generally however, links or quotes from other ministries are posted simply because they offer important insight on a particular topic.
