Are Small Groups as Important as Sunday Worship?

Episode 833 Show Notes 

From the Show

Be committed to gathering with the saints on the Lord’s Day and receiving God’s ordinary means of grace, that’s what God calls us to…but you are also called to be faithful in your work and your family. Sometimes we have so many things going in the church we pull people away from their primary callings: loving their families and discipling their children. That takes time and work.

Are Small Groups as Important as Sunday Worship?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Is it ok for married Christians to decide not to have kids?
  2. Is a Christian who attends Sunday service faithfully but does not attend midweek small groups or other church activities throughout the week considered “forsaking the fellowship of the saints”? As a business owner, my business requires a lot of my time and members from our church are telling my wife and I that we are forsaking the fellowship of the saints because we do not attend other church activities outside of Sunday morning Bible study and the main service. Their position seems very legalistic to me. Could you bring clarity to the situation for me?
  3.  What does 2 Thessalonians 2:11 mean?
  4. Is it too late to be saved on our deathbed?
  5. How should you respond when someone says that they’ve forgiven you but continue to bring up past sins again and again?
  6. Could you please unpack Matthew 13:38-39? Are the people mentioned here the Sons of Perdition?
