What Must I Do To Be A True Believer?

Episode 493 | Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions.

Show Notes


Key questions answered in today’s show:

1. I have a question that has kept me wondering about my salvation. It is about the verses from Revelation 3:15-16. It talks about lukewarm Christians, and it states that the majority of the Christian community is not going to be saved. Could you please explain this?

2. In Numbers 21, God sends down fiery serpents to bite the complaining Israelites. As I was reading, I thought to myself, does God get frustrated? I know that God does not sin, but how would one properly explain these passages in regard to His holiness? Is frustration not a sin? I see that Jesus uses this story in regards to looking to Him for salvation. Is this the reason this incident took place, just so Jesus would use it during His earthly ministry?

3. Jesus taught us to love our enemies, but we’re also not to cast our pearls before swine lest they trample on us. Can you shed some light on this gray area? Where do I draw the line?

4. Is lordship salvation biblical? When I think about it I get so depressed because I don’t understand.  From what I read you have to do certain things to be considered a true believer, but that just makes me feel hopeless.
