Episode 839 Show Notes 

From the Show

We are going to struggle in our fight against sin. But here’s what you can know: through Jesus’s death on the cross, you’re no longer under sin. You’ve been set free in a very real sense. You’re justified by faith so that you’re pure in God’s sight and now you are called to live in light of that reality.

If Jesus Conquered Sin, Why Am I Not Free of It?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How do I share with friends and family that they should find their answers for help in the Bible instead of tarot cards, crystals, and astrology?
  2. Why did God give us free will if we keep on sinning, and why do we sin all the time even though Jesus died on the cross to prevent sin?
  3.  Is Lucifer actually the devil’s name?
  4. I need help understanding God’s providence and sovereignty. As a family we have experienced a great deal of grief. Five years ago our young adult niece died in an accident. A few days ago her brother died. All of us are broken-hearted. I am wrestling, particularly for my niece and nephew’s mother. Please share any thoughts that might help us.
  5. Will people in other religions who are sincere and devout going to be in heaven?
