Episode 536 Show Notes
From the Show
In parenting, we don’t let our own frustrations bleed through and as a result respond harshly, sinfully toward our children. I think when we do, that’s when we begin to provoke them. And it has a negative and adverse effect.
Questions in this Episode
1. I accepted Jesus many years ago, but I still sin. How will I make it to heaven when I still sin? I do not always perfectly obey. What if I am not close enough to God? I am still sinful. What if I don’t read my Bible and pray enough; or have enough good works?
2. What does Paul mean by “my gospel” in 2 Timothy?
3. In Ephesians 6:4, Paul tells fathers not to provoke their children. What does this look like? How do I know I’m provoking my child instead of disciplining and instructing them?
4. In 2 Corinthians 5:21, what does it mean that Christ became sin? Other places in Scripture affirm Jesus was sinless, and that he was God, so I am having a hard time understanding what Paul is trying to say here.
