Episode 1027 Show Notes 

From the Show

We are grateful for people who felt the call of God to pursue something better for themselves and for their neighbors. We must cultivate contentment in our lives while not being complacent. We should pursue the Lord and avail ourselves of the opportunities he gives to us to make things better where we can.

Does Biblical Contentment Lead to Complacency?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Why did God command the destruction of the Canaanites and Amorites after he gave the command, “Thou Shalt Not Kill”?
  2. What is the feast referred to in Zechariah 14?
  3. We are supposed to be content in all situations according to Paul. But some of the people who made the biggest changes in this world were the ones who were not happy with their situation in this world. Think of Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, and others. How do you explain this with being content in our life?
  4. Should Christians support the death penalty?
  5. How can a shut-in participate in the Lord’s Supper?
