Episode 914 Show Notes 

From the Show

We don’t need to look down on Christians who do things differently than we do. But there does need to be a healthy concern about churches imposing extra-biblical rules on their members.

Should Evangelicals Observe Lent?

Questions in this Episode

  1. If the Bible was written by men, how can it truly be considered God’s Word?
  2. With Ash Wednesday coming up, I am wondering why it has become a sort of debate and topic of discussion for evangelicals. Catholics seem to have always observed Ash Wednesday and Lent, and some evangelicals see observing it as cool and hip, while others think it’s entirely unbiblical. What are your thoughts are on the merits of observing or refusing to observe Lent?
  3. Where in the Bible does it teach about the sovereignty of God?
  4. What is the significance of the cleansing of the unclean animals in Mark 7?
