Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

How Do I Know If I Am One of the “Elect”?

host Adriel Sanchez aired January 31, 2022

Episode 892 Show Notes 

From the Show

When Paul talked about election, he rooted the entire topic in Jesus Christ. This means that we shouldn’t even be thinking about this doctrine apart from Jesus and his work.

How Do I Know If I Am One of the “Elect”?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How do I comfort those who have lost someone in from COVID-19?
  2. I learned about the doctrines of grace a couple years ago, and have been struggling with great fear about not being one of God’s elect. It has really made me scared, and question that maybe I can’t approach Christ, even though I know He is the only one who can save us. Can Jesus reject someone coming to Him for mercy? What should someone struggling with this do or think about?
  3. What does it mean that the “first shall be last”?
  4. What comes first, faith or regeneration?
