Are the Stories in the Old Testament Fact or Fiction?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Should Christians have pictures of the Nativity and Jesus throughout their homes?
  2. Is the Equality Act a sign that the church has now entered the period of persecution?
  3. I have a hard time believing the stories in the Old Testament, like Jonah and the Whale. Did those really happen?
  4. I am struggling with lust. What advice can you share with me to help prevent me from falling in this area?
  5. John and Paul as authors of scripture sound very boastful and bragerdly at times. John says that he is the “most loved disciple,” and when Paul talks to the churches that he establishes he also sounds boastful of himself. What do you think of this?
