Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Am I Really Saved If I Struggle with Alcoholism?

host Adriel Sanchez aired October 12, 2021

Episode 813 Show Notes 

From the Show

It’s one thing to know that you have a drinking problem and are ok with it, and Paul very clearly says, “drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God.” But for Christians who struggle with sin, there is hope.

Adriel Sanchez

Am I Really Saved If I Struggle with Alcoholism?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How do I know that God hears and answers my prayers?
  2. I have been an alcoholic and struggled with addiction nearly all of my life. Can I still be a Christian if I struggle with this? What do I do?
  3. Did Pharaoh’s magicians perform actual signs and wonders, or were they allusions?
  4. If my family member is an addict, what should I do? How should I counsel people in these situations?
  5. Jesus often uses the phrase “outer darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Is he referencing Hell in each of these cases?
