Episode 544 Show Notes
From the Show
Our churches should be gospel-revealing communites. The very makeup of the congregation should reveal the power of the gospel to bring together sinners from all different stripes, backgrounds, and cultures, and that is what we should strive for. When the gospel is the primary thing drawing us together, you ought to get this diverse community. We should strive to have our churches reflect the community that they are in demographically as much as possible.
Questions in this Episode
- Could you explain to me what it means to pray in the Holy Spirit?
2. Will people in an ongoing homosexual relationship go to heaven, even if they confess that they are Christians?
3. Why are churches still separated by race? We all say we are Christians, so why don’t we go to church together?
4. I like the book of Acts for its history of the early church, but I don’t really know why Luke wrote it. It seems like a loose collection of stories to me, especially with its abrupt ending. Do you think Luke had a bigger goal than just recording history? If so, why do you think he wrote Acts?
