Am I Still a Christian If I’ve Made Jesus My Savior But Haven’t Repented?

Episode 354 Show Notes 

From the Show

Don’t turn your repentance into a good work that you perform in order to merit or earn salvation.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. Can you be a Christian if you have made Jesus your savior and you don't know if you repented or not? Is being saved just asking Jesus to save you?

2. I like apologetics, but sometimes I worry that it gives the impression that if a person doesn’t have really good reasons for their faith then they don’t have true faith. But I have met some good Christian people who can’t give a good argument for the resurrection. What do you think?

3. How do we keep from getting so caught up in things like politics that we forget about the Gospel?

4. Is it okay for Christians to pray for God’s wrath towards those who are against him?

5. How should I understand the story of Judah and Tamar?

6. Dr. Horton, what is your favorite passage in the Book of Isaiah?
