Will I Be Removed From the Kingdom of God If I Continue in Fornication?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. How should we understand Jesus’s healing miracles? If Jesus came just to die for our sins, then why does he spend so much time healing? 2. When it talks about the unpardonable sin, and it says that God will get to the point where repentance will no longer work for you. What about those who like myself who do struggle with fornication? Being a Christian for the last 10 years and still struggling with that, how does that work? What about people who go to celebrate recovery? How does that work when it says that those who continue, there is no repentance for you? 3. How do I stop committing the same sins over and over again? 4. Can we ask for whatever we want as long as we ask in the name of Jesus?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. Could you tell me how I can truly know if I have repented of my sins? 2. Thank you very much for being ambassadors for Christ and helping me understand the Bible more. My question is about corporal punishment. I am currently reading a book on leading your family in faith as father and a chapter came up about corporal punishment. I am not exactly sure where I stand and want to make sure my views line up with Scripture. I know proverbs 23:13-14 instructs us to us it as a form of discipline but I know society has a very negative view on it. Some Christians say that that passage is out of date with today's practices and culture. Can I get some clarification on this? Thank you for the work you are doing! 3. Why was God so harsh on the Israelites when they built a golden calf? 4. Is my anxiety a sin issue?

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?
