Why Did Jesus Do All of That When He Could Have Just…

In Morning Program, Questions Asked on The Narrow Path Radio Program on August 7, 2013 at 10:49 am

Questions asked on The Narrow Path Radio Program hosted by Steve Gregg – 8/7/2013 Morning Show

  1. In Mark’s gospel, in the story of the healing of the deaf and dumb man, why did Jesus take the man away from the others and put His fingers in the man’s ears and touch the man’s tongue and do all of that when He could have simply laid hands on the man and healed him?  What are we to learn from this particular method that He used?  Do you believe that Jesus recognized that the Father wanted to heal this person in particular, or did He just heal this man at random?
  2. What is your take on a discipleship program that our church is using that asks you to consider a single line of Scripture every week and then asks you to meet with a group and discuss how you understand and how it affects you?
  3. Are we supposed to be spreading the word of God on a daily basis and is it more frowned upon if we don’t do anything? How much should I be telling people about Jesus?
  4. Were people saved only after Jesus died or even before?

Do Calvinists approach Scripture without the Spirit of God? and other questions…

Questions asked on The Narrow Path Radio Program hosted by Steve Gregg – 8/1/2013 Morning Show

Steve was joined by Matt Rose, an associate pastor in upstate New York.

1. Would you agree that adopting a systematic theology like Calvinism seems to be the default position of someone who approaches Scripture like an academic textbook without the Spirit of God or knowing the heart of God?  How possible is it to fellowship closely with someone with strong differences theologically? Since God is a person, if someone tried to systematize everything I’ve said and thought and written into a systematic way of understanding me they might encounter some pitfalls because sometimes I’m thinking differently, or saying things metaphorically or analogically, etc., and if you don’t have that personality who is really directing your perspective, isn’t there a danger of trying to literally translate and understand everything He is saying?

2. How would you answer a question regarding God’s foreknowledge and God’s predestination; it’s my understanding that God foreknew all the ones that would be true believers, and all true believers were predestinated before the foundation of the world, right?  The true believers fall into two categories: those that are true believers for their whole life and true believers who fall away.  So even though God had foreknowledge that they would fall away did He still predestinate those true believers or only the ones that were going to be true believers their whole life?

3. Ephesians 1:11 talks about “being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” I’ve heard 5-point Calvinists on the radio use this verse saying that everything that happens is predestined or preordained, because it says “works all things according to the counsel of His will.” This confuses me. And I don’t think it could just mean that the Jews or the Gentiles will become one because it says “who all things.”

4. Why did Jesus find it necessary to cleanse the temple of the money changers if His ultimate cause was to be a sacrifice for sin?

Homosexuality, Fornication, Alleged Discrepancy in the Bible, Trinity

In Morning Program, Questions Asked on The Narrow Path Radio Program on July 31, 2013 at 10:13 am

Questions asked on The Narrow Path Radio Program hosted by Steve Gregg – 7/31/2013 Morning Show

  1. It sounded to me like the Pope was condoning homosexuality and said that he wouldn’t judge a person because of it; what do you think of that? What does the Bible say about homosexuality? If a Bible teacher condones the practice of homosexuality or fornication, isn’t that person wrong and a false teacher?
  2. I’m seeing a conflict between two accounts of Paul’s conversion experience on the road to Damascus. Acts 9:7 describes his companions on the road as “hearing a voice but seeing no one.” By contrast, Acts 22:9 says that “they saw the light but they did not hear the voice of him who spoke to Paul.”  How would you explain this contradiction?
  3. Caller called to disagree with the idea that the Bible supports the Trinity doctrine.
