My Friend “Heard from God.” Should I Believe Them?

Episode 766 Show Notes 

From the Show

When people are not emphasizing the Word of God but their own personal experience and “prophetic” utterances, that’s a recipe for disaster. We have to get back to the Scriptures and encourage each other with the Word of God.

–Adriel Sanchez

My Friend “Heard from God.” Should I Believe Them?

Questions in this Episode

  1. The Bible says that, “no one has seen the face of God.” But is that the case for Adam and Eve, didn’t they see God in Eden?
  2. How should we respond when someone says that they have “received a Word from the Lord”?
  3. My pastor only talks about how the “election was stolen” instead of talking about Jesus. What should I do?
  4. Does Paul contradict himself in Romans 8?
  5. What do you make of the “lost books of the Bible” that have become a hot button topic, like the Gospel according to Judas?
