Does God Reveal Himself in Other Religions?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. Does God reveal himself in other religions or should we only expect God to reveal himself to Christians?2. I recently ran into the infamous verse of Isaiah 45:7 where people often claim is where it says God purposefully created evil (as the King James Version uses the word “evil” where other translations, notably the ESV, use the word calamity). There’s no real context I can see on this statement in surrounding text. What am I supposed to make of this verse? 2. Thank you Dr. Horton and Pastor Sanchez for your work to answer core questions about the faith. I'm also thankful for your response to more difficult or sensitive questions of praying. In the Magnificat, Mary praises God and says, "...all generations will call me blessed." How are we to think about this? 3. Why don’t we see many miracles in the church today? 4. Is introspection a good thing for Christians to practice? 5. Psalm 8 says that man are, “made a little lower than the angels”. How does that fit with man’s sinfulness? 6. What does it mean in John 17 when Jesus says that eternal life is to know him and the Father?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. The church I attend uses gluten free crackers and grape juice for the Lord's Supper. I wonder if that is okay. 2. I recently ran into the infamous verse of Isaiah 45:7 where people often claim is where it says God purposefully created evil (as the King James Version uses the word “evil” where other translations, notably the ESV, use the word calamity). There’s no real context I can see on this statement in surrounding text. What am I supposed to make of this verse? 3. Why does Paul so often begin his letters with “grace and peace”? What does that mean?  4. How should we respond when scandals happen within the church? 5. I’ve heard that the term “Christian” was originally given to believers with a negative connotation attached to it. If this is true, would it be better if we identified ourselves as “followers of Jesus” instead?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. Some people think that the greatest challenge facing the church is pluralism. They seem to worry about America changing and moving away from being a Christian nation. Should we be concerned? 2. I have been in a relationship for several years. Something always told me that we aren't perfect for each other. We had a son. We are trying to get right with God. He is not a Christian, but he is traditional in our culture? How would that work? 3. Why did Jesus have to be baptized if he was already fully God? 4. Is the book of Genesis historically true? 5. How do we read the Bible in a Christ centered way? 6. How do I know if I’m called to be a missionary? 7. How can I stop questioning my salvation?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. I would like one of the gentlemen to explain Hebrews 6:4-6. 2. If there is no marriage in heaven, why is it, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”? Why did God even create two separate genders to be companions? 3. Who do you think the Anti-Christ will be? 4. What does it mean when people say that “Jesus is the Messiah”? 5. What does it mean when Jesus says that, "not an iota, will pass from the Law”?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. “Christ our righteousness,” I read this in the Bible many times. What does "Christ our righteousness" mean and how does it apply to us? 2. Many years ago a preacher said the devil cannot hear your thoughts only God can hear your thoughts. So, for most all of those years I pray silently so the devil can't hear my worries and concerns. Does the Bible say anything about the privacy of prayer with God? 3. What does it mean when you say that, “Jesus was raised for our justification”? 4. Is God the author of sin and evil? 5. Will I still be married to my wife when we’re in heaven?
