Can Non-believers Bear Fruit?

Episode 790 Show Notes 

From the Show

Ultimately, all good works come from the Lord himself. And there’s no such thing as a good work apart from faith. In that sense, there is a difference between the fruit of the spirit wrought in a Christians life and the other good things we see in the world.

Can Non-believers Bear Fruit?

Questions in this Episode

  1. What is the rapture?
  2. The Bible says that if people remarry that it’s adultery, but the church seems to welcome remarried couples all of the time as if it’s not a big deal. But the church would never welcome a homosexual couple. Isn’t that hypocritical? My best friend is gay and I am not sure he would ever be welcome in a church. What is a gay person’s place in the church community?
  3. Galatians 5 speaks of the Fruit of the Spirit, but I see unbelievers also display some of these fruits in some way. So what separates a Christian and an unbeliever when they can both exhibit this kind of behavior?
  4. I don’t want to judge others for speaking in tongues, but what is your view on this spiritual gift?
  5. What does Jesus mean in John 6 when he says we must eat his body and drink his blood?
