Is it Fair to Say That the Bible is Clear When There Are So Many Obscure Passages?

Episode 312 Show Notes 

From the Show

Focus on the things that really are the most important, not the tyranny of the urgent as much as the big picture. Get in charge of things and say, “this is what we think matters most.” The other stuff really will fall into place. We need to go to church, first of all to hear the word preached regularly. That puts wind in our sails throughout the week. And have realistic expectation about life.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. Why did Jesus teach in parables?

2. I have heard people say that the Bible is really clear but after dealing with it for years, the Bible seems less and less clear to me. Do you think we protestants are right to insist that the Bible is clear even when there are so many obscure and difficult passages in the Old Testament and the New?

3. How can I tell if my Pastor is a false teacher?

4. Should Christians still trust the past writings of teachers and authors who have fallen into deep sin?

5. Do you have any advice for how to balance having a spiritual life with being a parent of young children?

6. What do people mean when they say that, “God is love”?
