Episode 797 Show Notes
From the Show
Any theology that minimizes baptism or that says you don’t really need it, runs into a problem because Jesus is the one who gave us these signs of the gospel for his people, for his church, to communicate his saving power.
Questions in this Episode
- I have a friend who says that they’re a Christian, but that they also are practicing witch? Can Christians practice witchcraft?
- My friends have deconstructed their faith and have walked away from God because they believe that if God was truly love, then everyone would be in heaven. What can. I say to them?
- I happened to catch a prior broadcast where a question about baptism came up. This was a great opportunity to take the focus off of baptism, as there are many Catholics and non-catholics that think you need to be baptized in order to be saved, or that some sort of grace is attained through the act of baptism. Unfortunately, I think Pastor Sanchez muddied the waters at best. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone. No acts are required, including baptism. There is no storehouse of grace that we gain access to through sacraments. Nor does baptism draw us closer to the Lord. I pray you get an opportunity to clarify this on air.
- I know that Jesus and the Father are co-equal, but in some Bible passages it seems like Jesus is subordinate to the Father. How do we make sense of these?
