From the Show

Christianity is the revelation of how God has conquered our biggest problems—sin and death. And maybe your friend doesn’t think sin is a problem. A lot of people in our world today don’t think sin is a problem but everyone is aware of the problem of death.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. I would like to know if you have to be baptized and submerged completely underwater to get to heaven?

2. Why are there so many interpretations of how to take communion and the essential meaning of communion? If God really wrote the Bible wouldn't it be very clear that there was one way to take communion and the essential meaning would be very, very clear?

3. I am wondering how you might answer a question I was asked recently. A friend of mine who isn’t a Christian asked me, “what does Christianity offer the world?” What I think he meant was, what does Christianity have to offer that other things do not, and I just wanted to hear what you guys would say to that.

4. With all the things that have been happening in the world, I’m really looking forward to Jesus’ return, but I’m also really struggling with falling into a feeling of pessimism about things and wonder if maybe I’m falling off a side of the horse here. Thank you for the show, it’s been a continual source of encouragement for me.

5. Since I was a child, I have been told that God is omni-present and is everywhere. But I also have been told that the devil is everywhere. Does this mean that the devil is omnipresent too? I have a hard time believing that he has the same power as God does. Should we instead say that the devil and his minions are everywhere?
