Is Christianity a Religion or a Relationship?

Episode 687 Show Notes 

From the Show

There is a way you can lay hold of Christ by faith. It’s through his word. Paul says in Galatians chapter 3 that Jesus was placarded, billboarded before the Galatians. How? Through the preaching of the word.

–Adriel Sanchez

Is Christianity a Religion or a Relationship?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Are we required to forgive those who not only don’t ask for forgiveness, but openly mock us? Should we apply Psalm 109 to them?
  2. How can I learn how to fast?
  3. Should we contextualize the gospel?
  4. I still find myself practicing Roman Catholic rituals even though I am a new Evangelical Christian. Sometimes I pray at and kneel before a picture of Jesus. Is this wrong?
  5. How do I reconcile with family member?
