Episode 682 Show Notes 

From the Show

We hold fast to the authority of the scriptures, knowing that it is there that God speaks to us. We let the scriptures do their work in us and through us because we know that that is where the power is. The word of God does the work of God.

–Adriel Sanchez

Is God’s Spirit in Us Greater than His Written Word?

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. What do you think Matthew 24:13 means when it talks about “enduring to the end”?

2. Did Satan know that he was defeated when Christ was crucified on the cross?

3. Can I wash away my own sins?

4. I am from the Philippines and many of the churches here are having a heated discussion online about the bible. There are pastors here that say that the final authority for Christians is Jesus’s spirit testifying in us, not the bible. So, is the bible infallible? Is it right to refer to it as the word of God?

5. In 1 John 5:13, it speaks of a sin that “leads to death.” What is that sin?
