Episode 736 Show Notes

From the Show

Too often in the Christian Life we assume that everything is supposed to be bubbly and happy. We go to church and that’s even the kind of music that you hear—it’s really high energy and exciting. And yet, when you look at the hymn book of the Israelites, the Book of Psalms, the majority of the psalms in the psalter are songs of lament.

–Adriel Sanchez

What Is the Difference Between Lamenting and Complaining to God?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Does God only hear prayers prayed in the name of Jesus? Would a Jew or Muslim prayer be heard or not since its not in the name of Jesus?
  2. Will Jews be saved purely based on their ethnicity?
  3. A biblical counselor told me that anyone who disagrees with us is our enemy? I thought Satan, sin, and the flesh were our enemies?
  4. Where is the line between biblical lament, such as crying out to God in severe suffering, and unbiblical complaint like the Israelites in the wilderness?
  5. After being saved, can Christians still be possessed in some way by demonic spirits?
  6. In Luke, Jesus tells his disciples to sell what they have in order to buy a sword, but in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus tells Peter to put his sword away. Why?
