Episode 930 Show Notes 

From the Show

There are times in our lives when we should be angry. Angry about the injustice and idolatry in the world and even in the church. But there are other times when our anger is wrong and sinful.

Adriel Sanchez

Does Jesus Say Anger and Murder are the Same Thing in Matthew 5?

Questions in this Episode

  1. As a woman trying to choose a doctor, does my gynecologist have to be a woman? Is there a line, even if they are a really good doctor?
  2. Matthew 5:21-22 says that anyone who is so much as “angry” is guilty of murder. I can’t believe that I am interpreting that right. I get angry with people all the time but it doesn’t mean I murdered them. I would appreciate your insight on this.
  3. Did the Serpent in the garden have legs before the fall?
  4. If a woman preaches, is she exercising spiritual authority?
  5. Why did God demand animal sacrifices in the Old Testament?
