Will Those Deceived by False Prophets Still Enter the Kingdom of God?

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. If Jesus had limited knowledge due to his human nature, does he now have full omniscience being seated at the right hand of the Father? 2. Why is David allowed to eat the Bread of Presence in 1 Samuel 21? Leviticus 24 sounds pretty straight-forward that only the priests and their family could eat the bread. I understand that Jesus makes reference to this event in Luke 6 in order to show the Pharisees that they were incorrect about how to interpret the Law, and that he, being God, knew and applied the proper interpretation of the Law. Still, I don’t understand why David was allowed to eat the bread in the first place. 3. Can you follow a false prophet into the kingdom of God? 4. If we are born in sin, how could Jesus not be a sinner in that he was born to a sinner? 5. I hear the word love used so many different times, and it seems like everyone has a different interpretation. How can it be interpreted so many different ways? Resources: "Knowing God" by J. I.

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. If only the Father knows when Christ shall return, why does Revelation say that the Bride has made herself ready for Christ? 2. When Paul warned the Corinthians that “whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord” in 1 Corinthian 11, does that mean we need to prepare ourselves ahead of time so that we can take the Lord’s supper in a worthy manner? 3. What did Jesus mean he said, “Woe to the Pharisees for they devour widow’s houses”? 4. I was wondering in what order should the third use of the law be preached in a sermon? Does preaching it out of order risk turning the gospel into law?  Resources: "How We’ve Misunderstood 'Do This in Remembrance of Me'” by Adriel Sanchez, "A Better Way: Rediscovering the Drama of God-Centered Worship" by Michael Horton.

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. Why did God choose Jacob over Esau or David over Saul when they were all moral screw-ups? 2. I heard your answer to Jade about there not being any shame at the judgment seat of Christ for believers. I was wondering, what does that mean, then, for our works to be tested, and what we build on Christ will last, but what we build of hay will be burned and our souls will be saved but only as through fire? What does that mean that there is no pain at the judgment of believers before we reign with Christ? 3. What do Paul and Jesus mean when they say that the bread and wine are Christ’s body and blood? Is this metaphorical? 4. Why are the 10 commandments all about telling us what we shouldn’t do? Doesn’t this focus our attention on negative traits instead of what we should be doing for one another and for God?

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. I have a question on 1 Peter 4:6 which says “For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.” As far as I understand, there is no opportunity for salvation once people died, but in the passage above, what does that mean “gospel was preached to those who are even dead”? 2. Do you think it is right for the church to pay pastors? Wouldn’t it be better for pastors to earn their living at a job rather than asking other people to support them? Isn’t this just using God’s name to guilt people and take advantage of them?  3. Why do some Bibles have more books in them than other ones? Who decided that those other books, the Apocrypha, shouldn’t be in some Bibles?  4. What makes the prosperity gospel so bad? Why wouldn’t I want God’s blessings in my life? 5. I was driving to Las Vegas last weekend and saw a couple of billboards that Jesus saves, repent, the end is coming, etc. Is this really an effective way to witness? Resources: "The Gospel-Driven Life: Being Good News People in a Bad News World" by Michael Horton, "Woman Designs Sturdy Cardboard Beds For Overrun Hospitals in India – And Her Proud Family Sells Them At Cost."

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. Sometimes I feel like the most inspirational verses in the Bible actually leave me feeling hopeless. Like 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” I’m not always happy, I don’t always pray, and I often forget to be thankful. If this is God’s will for me, why do I have such a hard time living it out? 2. I heard a TV pastor talk about the bible verse, “God is no respecter of persons.” He went on to say that this meant that God does not respect people, only Jesus. Is this correct? I know God loves people, perhaps everyone, but does he respect them? 3. I know the Bible talks about Scripture being God-breathed, but who was the first person that started writing the Bible, and how has everything been compiled into one book? 4. How can I reach out, on a spiritual level, to a friend and fellow Christian who has fallen away to drugs and alcohol and has seemingly lost his love for the Lord?
