Show Notes


Key questions answered in today's show:

1. I have a brother in law who is a preacher and he heads up a ministry of healing. He is really into healing words and Scripture. He has gone through a major operation for his heart and he is a little depressed and wonders why he wasn’t healed. I know that the Bible teaches that not everyone is healed. But they say that if you really, truly believe then your prayers will be answered. I’m wondering about it too. I would appreciate any insight.

2. I recently had a conversation with a coworker about how she's a Christian who believes in purgatory. My understanding of purgatory is that it's a Catholic belief and not biblical at all. Her argument is that God will provide a resting place before we go to Heaven. I got a little confused, especially remembering the Scripture in Luke where it says we will die one death and then there's judgement. Would you be able to clarify this for me?

3. What does it mean when Paul speaks about us being, "raised up with Christ”?

4. Is it possible to be angry but no be in sin?

5. Should Christians observe Jewish holidays and festivals like Hanukkah and Passover?
