What Does The Bible Mean When It Says "We Will Be Glorified"?

From the Show

I have a friend who likes to curse and generally doesn’t care about the movies or music he listens to. When I have confronted him on it he has appealed to Christian liberty, the idea that in Christ he is free to do these things.  What do you think? Is this how we should understand Christian liberty?‚Äč

There's absolutely no way that sin is going to make sense to people apart from the Holy Spirit; you're absolutely right. You know, we think that we have bad hair days, we do things that are off, but we're basically good people. And when we read in scripture that there's “no one good, no not one there's no one who's righteous.” Before God, we're all in the same boat, we're all sinners. Even if other sinners may appear a lot better than sinners over here, but before God, we're all in the same situation. And that can be a hard thing for people to hear. I think to focus on sin as a condition before it's an act is helpful for people when they're understanding sin. According to scripture, you're not saying that you are, as bad as you can possibly be. You're not telling people that they're horrible people. So, let's start out with that. This is about a condition that we're all in, we're all sinners. — Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. I have a friend who likes to curse and generally doesn’t care about the movies or music he listens to. When I have confronted him on it he has appealed to Christian liberty, the idea that in Christ he is free to do these things.  What do you think? Is this how we should understand Christian liberty?

2.  I’m at a new church where they recite the Lord’s prayer in the service. Do you think it’s good to do this? I’m used to churches where all prayers are said from the heart.

3. I was reading about the transfiguration in the Gideon Bible and it says that Moses and Elijah appeared. I looked it up in the King James Version it doesn't says Elijah; it says Elias. Now I'm confused.

4. What does he mean by glorified? And is this part of our salvation now or is it future?

5. I get a lot of opportunities to witness. I have witnessed sharing the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, and have been laughed at. I wonder if I do more harm than good. Is there a right way to share the gospel?

6. My brother-in-law was recently married into the Greek Orthodox Church. I'm confused by this form of orthodoxy. Can you help with this?
