Episode 738 Show Notes 

From the Show

God himself teaches us by the grace of his Spirit. This isn’t a statement that means we don’t need to go to church or that we don’t need faithful bible-teachers—this is talking about how the Spirit is at work in our hearts.

What Are Christians Obligated to Do in the New Covenant?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I heard that you are preaching through Genesis. Because of that I thought that you might help me answer a question in Genesis chapter 6. My husband and I are reading Genesis and in verse 2, it says, “the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive,” who are the “sons of God” in the plural here?
  2. You have said before that God alone makes the choice of who is saved. So my question is, why doesn’t God choose to save everyone?
  3. In Jeremiah 31, it speaks about the New Covenant. How is the New Covenant different from the old one and does it allude to the idea that another person’s sanctification is not my problem, but the Holy Spirit’s?
  4. I’m concerned with the politicization of the evangelical church. Do you feel that politics is forming our theology? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
