Is it Fair to Say That the Bible is Clear When There Are So Many Obscure Passages?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. Why did Jesus teach in parables? 2. I have heard people say that the Bible is really clear but after dealing with it for years, the Bible seems less and less clear to me. Do you think we protestants are right to insist that the Bible is clear even when there are so many obscure and difficult passages in the Old Testament and the New? 3. How can I tell if my Pastor is a false teacher? 4. Should Christians still trust the past writings of teachers and authors who have fallen into deep sin? 5. Do you have any advice for how to balance having a spiritual life with being a parent of young children? 6. What do people mean when they say that, “God is love”?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. I have a question about Romans 11. In whom and what are the gentiles and Israel grafted into? And what is the nature of this engrafting since it seems Paul says that parts of Israel have been broken off and he warns the gentiles that they can be broken off? And lastly, what is the significance of this for the Christian's life? 2. I've been taught my whole life that after the cross and resurrection, unbelievers are sitting in a prison with an open door and all they have to do is just walk out. This sounds a lot like universalism but I am assured by those teaching it that it is not because those that do not' walk out are choosing to stay. Can you explain this idea? 3. What does it mean to “watch and pray” in the book of Matthew? 4. In Romans 9, Paul says he wished he could be accursed for the sake of his Jewish brothers. Is he saying this because he wants us to have a love for the Jewish people? 5. Why are there so many references about Jesus’ blood in our redemption, and not just that we are saved by Jesus himself? 6. What makes for a Godly Marriage?

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. I go to a church where people can serve themselves communion. I’m new to this church and I have never been to a church that does this. I did talk to one of the pastors about it and he assured me that it was Biblical, because what mattered was that people were being led by the Spirit to take communion. This still bothers me. Can you tell me what you think about this and provide Biblical support for your view? 2. I was just wondering about prayer. The other day I asked a number of my friends to pray for another friend who is going to have surgery. I realized after I did that that one of my friends is not a Christian, and she actually doesn’t even pray. So, when she replied she just said, “I’ll just hold her close to my heart.” Now I’m wondering, did I goof when I asked her that, or does God honor good thoughts too? 3. What’s the difference between excusing sin and showing grace? 4. Why does God tell Jeremiah that he will not listen when his people call for him? 5. How do we get back to the teachings of the early church?
