Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. 1. How do you explain the doctrine of the Trinity to young children? My kids understand that Jesus is God but have a hard time understanding the idea of other persons in the identity of God. 2. Do we have to keep forgiving someone who keeps sinning against us? 3. Jesus says He will send the Holy Spirit after He went to the Father. But in John 20 Jesus says to His disciples, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” But in Acts it look like the day of the Pentecost was the first indwelling of the Holy Spirit into believers. How can you understand these two events without contradiction? 4. In the Apostle's Creed, it says that Jesus descended into hell. If Christ took the punishment of man on the cross, why did he have to "descend" into hell? 5. How do you understand the baptism of the Holy Spirit? 6. In Ephesians, it says that we are not judged by our works, but by the blood of Jesus. However, in 2 Corinthians, Paul says that we will be judged by our works. I know that we are ultimately saved by the grace of God but this is confusing to me.
