Does Paul Say We Should Punish Ourselves When We Sin?

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. What should Christians know about Freemasonry? 2. How do we build trust in Christian leaders again after so many high profile Christian figures have been caught in scandals? 3. When will we receive our glorified bodies? 4. In 2 Corinthians 10:5-6, the latter part of the verse talks about punishing “all disobedience.” What does that mean? 5. Is schizophrenia a kind of demonic possession or is it purely a mental disorder? 6. I have in the past asked a Mormon friend to pray for me or others that are on my heart. I don’t believe LDS Scriptures are from God or that my friend believes in the triune God. But he believes he is praying to God. Where do his prayers go? Are they powerless?

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. How can someone be a Christian and still be so unforgiving and cruel? Can they be afflicted demonically as well as have the Holy Spirit within them? 2. Does the fact that I sometimes doubt that God has forgiven me mean I’m not really saved? 3. Which doctrines are primary and which ones are secondary? 4. Did God create Satan good, as an angel, or did he make him already evil? 5. How will Christians be judged if we are already justified? 6. Why do we worship on Sunday instead of Saturday? Today’s Offer: "Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers" by Dane Ortlund.

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. I understand that it is preferable for the men to preach, but in my church no men are actually interested in speaking up. That is what I am wrestling with. What should I do? 2. Who is the “Bright and Morning Star” referring to in the Bible? 3. Can you explain a simplified idea of predestination vs. responsibility and our choice? I know that God is sovereign, but the Bible also says that ‘if you believe and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, then you will be saved.’ Can you help clarify this? 4. My friend is currently in seminary and our church hopes to partner with her once she is done with her studies to so that she can be a biblical counselor at the church. However, I recently heard an argument against this saying that women cannot counsel a man because of what Paul says in 1 Timothy 2. So, can women serve as biblical counselors in the church and counsel men, or is this unbiblical? 5. It feels as if my family is under a curse. Misfortunes and countless other ailments continue to plague us, what should I do? Today’s Offer: "Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers" by Dane Ortlund.

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. Where should I go in the Bible to address alcoholism? 2. Is it a sin to be cremated? 3. Does the New Testament say that we do not need the laws of the Old Testament? 4. I recently saw that one of the biggest churches in America ordained 3 women to pastoral ministry. This is the first time the church has done this. Did the church leaders just change their mind, or do you think this is a practice that more churches should begin doing? 5. Can we donate our bodies to science when we die? 6. Augustine and Luther taught God regenerates via water baptism, and that regeneration can be lost. Is this true? Today’s Offer: Core Kit.

Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions.   1. We were talking with a Catholic couple who said that Eve was Adam’s second wife. They say that this is taught in the Talmud and in Isaiah 34:14. Can you explain why we do not accept this teaching or hold to the Talmud? 2. In the Old Testament, it says that God hates the wicked. So, does this mean that God hated us before we were saved? 3. What happened to the aquatic animals during the time of Noah’s ark? 4. Why do people think that doing good works means you’re saved, and why do people think that they are saved if they are baptized or say the sinner’s prayer? 5. How do Christians lead family members and coworkers to Christ? 6. With the recent news regarding the arrest of Josh Duggar, I do not understand how and why churches are able to have these kinds of predators in their midst. Why do these kinds of stories and scandals keep coming out? Shouldn’t churches be difficult places for these kinds of figures to hide instead of easy ones? Today’s Offer: Core Kit.
