How Can I Act as a Peacemaker During the Upcoming Election?

Episode 558 Show Notes 

From the Show

Why are we shy about Jesus, but willing to lose friends and family over politics? Jesus is really easy to defend, his record is spotless–he’s perfect, he’s holy. The gospel, the good news that we have been given as Christians is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. This is good news for the whole world! If there is anything we should be bold about or willing to lose friends over its the good news of Jesus Christ.

Questions in this Episode

1. Can you help me understand how God’s Sovereignty fits into the story of King Saul? The Bible says that if he would have obeyed, then his kingdom would have been established forever. But instead God “sought out another.” Doesn’t that seem like an argument against God’s sovereignty? It looks like Saul could have gone either direction, but if I understand sovereignty right, shouldn’t Saul’s fall be set in stone by God’s decree?

2. What is “Christendom”? I see that word used but am not sure what others mean by it.

3. I am worried about conflict between family, friends, and church members after the election next month, especially since it has already been a stressful year. I know that Jesus says, “blessed are the peacemakers”in the Sermon on the Mount. How can I prepare myself now to be a peacemaker?

4. Does the bible have anything to say about out of body experiences?
