Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Is It Possible to Be Saved but Not Know It?

Episode 608 Show Notes 

From the Show

Ultimately, even a weak faith that clings to Jesus Christ is sufficient to save us. Jesus is actually the one who saves us, it’s not the faith itself or the strength of the faith, it is Jesus, and even a weak faith can cling to a strong savior. There are people who are saved, but who aren’t fully confident in that reality.

——Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. How do you appeal to a person who claims to be a Christian without being part of a local church; without taking the sacraments, and sitting under the regular preaching of the Word of God?

2. I want to ask a question. How do I get to know more about the word of God?

3. What was the blessing that Abraham would be to all the nations from Genesis 12:1-3?

4. Is it possible to be saved and not know it? I am aware of the verse that says the Spirit of God testifies with our spirit that we are the sons and heirs of Jesus Christ, but I am wondering if it is also possible to not know that you are saved?

5. I’m liking distributing gospel tracts as good work for the Kingdom of God. My parents, who are unbelievers, are frustrated with me because of it. My mom told me to stop distributing and printing as long as I’m under their roof. Should I obey? I need advice.
