Episode 488 | Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. Show Notes CoreChristianity.com Key questions answered in today’s show: 1. I have a friend whose grown children show no interest in God, church, the Bible, or prayer. He says that he’s trusting the baptismal covenant that his children will return to the Faith. Is that a correct view of baptism? It almost sounds like baptismal regeneration to me. 2. It seems to me that the law is different from the Gospel because the law is something we do while the Gospel asks nothing from us. But 1 Peter 4:17 speaks of “those who do not obey the gospel of God.” Can you help me distinguish between the law and the Gospel? 3. I’ve recently been studying Genesis 3:16. I know the common interpretation of the verse is that a woman’s desire for their husbands is about wanting to usurp their husband’s authority. Some newer interpretations suggest this view is incorrect and it’s more about the post-fall loss of the unity and harmony that the Lord intended for marriage. Is it right to assume Genesis 3:16 presumes that women just want to usurp authority? I feel like this view has some dangerous implications, particularly in regards to misogyny and abuse, but I want to follow Scripture correctly. 4. I have a question which nags me because I have so many unsaved relatives. How often do I present them with the gospel? They never come to me to ask a question of any kind that might lead to a gospel conversation. I’ve gone to them over the years, they’ve all heard the gospel from me, and I pray for them all the time. It hit me this week that I don’t see Jesus or the apostles running after anybody once they’ve heard the truth and turned away. Is that my example, too?

Episode 105 | Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Show Notes CoreChristianity.com Key questions answered in today’s show: 1. Dr. Horton, I recently read a book about someone having a dream about them going to hell and being told about Jesus. Does God work through visions and dreams? What should I think about their account of hell? 2. I have a friend who stopped going to church because he thinks that Christians are too intolerant. At first, I tried to object to that stereotype, but his interactions with other Christians haven’t been models of Christ-likeness. Some Christian people have treated him in very sinful ways and have said horrible things about him that I know aren’t true. What should I do to help my friend see that Jesus is bigger than our sin? 3. In Isaiah chapter 11 he speaks about a wolf dwelling with a lamb and a leopard lying down with a young goat. Is Isaiah talking about heaven? And does this mean that there will be animals in heaven? 4. When Jesus prayed that the church would be one it didn’t seem like he had in mind that there would be multiple denominations. How do we reconcile this with that fact that it would seem like God would answer Jesus’ prayer for unity? What should we as Christians be doing to achieve unity? 5. Revelation 22:17 say, “And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.” Does this mean that anyone could be saved? And if salvation is free why don’t more people accept Jesus as Lord? 6. In the opening of 1 Corinthians Paul says that they are sanctified and they are saints. But throughout the letter it doesn’t seem like they are saints at all but childish and sinful. Was Paul being sarcastic or was he speaking literally?
