Episode 718 Show Notes

From the Show

There is nothing that we can do to prepare ourselves to be saved. It’s not like you do some works and God does some works and then you’re saved. No, it’s all a work of the Holy Spirit.



–Adriel Sanchez

Can Faith Come Before Repentance?

Questions in this Episode

  1. If what we deserve is eternity in hell, how does Jesus’s payment on the cross cover our debt to God since he did not spend eternity in hell?
  2. If we are rewarded in heaven, does that mean some will receive more rewards than others and that there will be different levels for believers in heaven?
  3. How do you go about counseling people in your church?
  4. Before someone has faith in Jesus, do they first need to acknowledge that they are a sinner and have broken God’s law? Or can someone just hear about Jesus, have faith in him, and figure out the part where they’re sinners later?
  5. Can you explain what Acts 2:38 means? Does it mean that we cannot be saved unless we have been baptized?
