Should I Attend My Gay Son’s Wedding? with Special Guest Dr. Michael Horton

Christian talk radio with Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier

May 22, 2020

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. Does the Holy Spirit dwell within a believer physically or relationally? I read in the Old Testament that the Holy Spirit came into and onto people and I don't know if that gives guidance to my New Testament understanding. Whether right or wrong on this, should it affect my understanding of the baptizing, filling or works of the Holy Spirit?  2. Could you please explain Open Theism to me? I don’t understand how I can trust God if it is true. How Can God not know the future? If he is waiting for us and reacting to our choices, how can we trust in his promises? Can you give me some Bible verses to stand on?  3. If God doesn't always deliver us from great persecution or suffering, how I can trust God to be a merciful and loving God. All the Psalms and Proverbs tell us that he is there and he will protect us, when obviously that is not what happened. I have a very difficult time aligning that in my mind and the verses in the Scripture, which I trust to be the Word of God and the truth. Please help me with that.  4. I’m trying to figure out whether or not to attend my son’s gay wedding ceremony. He knows that I do not believe gay marriage is actually marriage, but he still wants me to be at the  ceremony. A friend recommended that I attend the ceremony but not the reception as there will be same-sex dancing, kissing, and celebrating. I would appreciate your thoughts.  Resources: "Rediscovering the Holy Spirit: God’s Perfecting Presence in Creation, Redemption, and Everyday Life" by Michael Horton, "True vs False Repentance: What's the Difference?" by Adriel Sanchez, "10 Things You Need to Know about Homosexuality and the Bible" by Michael Horton.
