Episode 563 Show Notes

From the Show

We are called to love those who are sinners and to pursue them. Remember that Jesus came to seek and save the lost, not to point the finger at the lost, not to say, “I’m disgusted with you get out of my presence.” No, Jesus welcomes all those who come to him and he doesn’t leave us as we are. He cleanses us, he washes us, and he walks with us as we struggle and as we seek to know him and purse the truth.

–Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. When did the Catholic teaching of purgatory come into existence?

2. When Paul talks about “principalities and powers”in Ephesians 6, is he only referring to spiritual warfare, or is he also referring to worldly forces of power?

3. Lately people have been saying that the word “homosexual”was never in the bible and was translated to pedophile but was later changed. Meaning that being gay isn’t a sin and the bible was actually talking about pedophelia the entire time. How would you address this argument?

4. When the Bible says that a deacon/pastor can only be the husband of one wife, does that mean he cannot be divorced and remarried or does that mean he should only have one wife at a time?
