2014-11-05

2014-06-05
Original Sin: So it's not only the sin nature that is transcended from Adam & Eve's sin to us, but the guilt also being transcended down as well, Calvinists believe. What is their need or want to believe that? [Romans 5:12-21]

2014-05-06
No Forgiveness in the Age, Nor the Next: You were recently talking about Eternal not meaning Everlasting, for eternity, all the time. What about when Jesus said, "Not Forgiven in the Age, Nor the Next"? [Matthew 12:32]



2014-05-01
The term Eternal: How can you have one definition of eternal mean really everlasting, forever, but then it not really mean eternal, everlasting in the same verse? [Matthew 25:46]



2014-04-28
The Apostle's Creed: Where did we get the Apostle's Creed from? It says, "the holy catholic church" and that Jesus went to Hell for 3 days? Can you please just explain it?



2014-04-15
New Heaven & New Earth: So we've been taught that if you are righteous you go to heaven & if you are wicked you go to hell, but then there's also a new heaven & a new earth, so who goes to Heaven & who goes to the New Earth?



2014-04-15
Hell - Annihilationism: Doesn't Annihilationism take away the need for a Savior? Doesn't it take away the whole grace idea if they just get to be snuffed out?



2014-04-10

"Best they can": Even if Michael the Buddhist hasn't literally accepted Jesus as his Savior, at least he's trying his best.
Hell - Eternal Torment: Even though you say you don't believe in an eternal hell, & eternal torment, you actually really do.

2014-04-03
Mother Teresa: Mother Teresa seemed a little harsh to someone witnessing to a person on their deathbed.
NIV: Able to learn much easier from the NIV, so it is profitable to use.
Conditional Immortality: He that is dead is justified from his sin, from what you gave in someone's answer about hell, you seemed to have changed your position a little bit. Is that true? [Romans 6:7]

2014-04-03
Discipleship & Obedience: We need to become a Disciple of Christ when we become Christians, is that not right, but some just want to make sure they stay out of hell, but shouldn't we be craving to learn about Jesus as much as can, & do anything He asks? Isn't a major part of Discipleship making more disciples of Christ? Why such a minority of people wanting to do that?
Extravagancy: What if we are living way more luxurious than we should, instead of giving to missions? [Romans 14:4]


2014-04-02
"Hellbound" Documentary: Have you ever watched the documentary called, "Hellbound"? (A discussion about hell pursues for awhile & then more about the documentary.)



2014-03-24
Death: Immediately in the presence of God after death, the righteous are ushered, but what about the unsaved sinner, what happens to them, are they in limbo, are they judged immediately, what happens? [Luke 16:19-31]
The Spirit: We say the Spirit is in our heart, but where is it really?


2014-03-14
Suicide/Euthanasia: Would God damn people to hell for committing suicide because of chronic pain?



2014-03-12

2014-03-11
the Book mentioned in Acts: The author of Acts mentions a book, do you know what book he was talking about? [Acts 1, Luke 1]
Traditional eternal view of Hellfire: So since you think Satan was created in the state he is in right now, doesn't it stand to reason God would also create an eternal hell even though it SEEMS against His nature? [Revelation 20:10]


2014-03-10
Wider Hope Theory: I was reading in your book on 3 views of hell, & you were talking about the Wide Hope Theory. Can you expound on it?
Evolution: Adam & Eve were fully grown mature adults when they created.


2014-03-06
Hell - 3 Views (4 perhaps?): What is the 4th view of Hell that some of the books you cited mentioned? Are Annihiliationism & Universalism connected? Is it possible that some people will be annihilated & some will be resurrected?



2014-02-26
Music (follow-up): Spiritual music should appeal to our spiritual nature & not our fleshly nature, according to the caller.
Rich Man & Lazarus: Jesus wouldn't use a story that would introduce false or deceptive delusion that would cause us major confusion. [Luke 16:19-31]


2014-02-26
Bible throwing curve balls: I really believe in the fundamental essentials of Christianity, such as Jesus Christ &, the main & plain things, but then the Bible just throws weird things out there that we have to believe like literal creation, people burning in hell, & God creating Satan. Can you help me with the weird things that it seems to teach?



2014-02-17
Dispensationalism & Premillennialism: I enjoyed your book about the 4 views of Revelation as I was making my transition to Partial Preterism.
Views of Hell, Traditional View, Eternal Torment: I want to talk about your views of hell now. What would you call Hell if you didn't call it the "traditional view"?
Bible stories resembling Babylonian Mythology: People have said that Christianity & the Bible have just copied stories from Babylonian Mythology. Do you have thoughts about this, especially regarding the Rich Man & Lazarus? [Luke 19:19-31]

2014-02-11
God sending people to Hell: Comments about why God can send people to hell. We need to hate evil.



2014-02-07
Eternal Hell: So you'll never embrace the Traditional Hell view of Eternal Torment again? It seems very clear to me that the "historical, Orthodox view" of eternal hell torment is the only biblical view. Just the fact that God is so holy proves there has to be an eternal hell.



2014-02-05
Hell: What is your view of Hell? Don't you believe it's "eternal"? [Luke 16]
Regeneration: Is there any Scripture that teaches we are regenerated BEFORE we put our faith in Christ?


2014-01-27

2013-02-11
Hell & Conditional Immortality: It doesn't seem like God would perpetuate sin forever by letting people be tormented forever instead of annihilated. [Revelation 21:4]



2013-02-08
Eternal Punishment verses Eternal Punishing: Don't Annihilationists have a problem with this passage of Scripture, because whatever you are applying to the term, "aiōnios", when you apply it to the righteous, don't you have to apply it to the wicked? [Matthew 25:46]
Death a Punisment: Is death a punishment or a penalty, consequence of sin, the curse of sin? [Genesis 2, Romans 8:18-22]


2013-02-07
Hell, Annihilation: Would the death of Jesus be more grandiose if Jesus died on the cross to prevent us from being tormented forever instead of thinking that we are just going to be annihilated?
God's Glory & Judgment during Eternal Hell: Would it exemplify God's glory & judgment of people burning forever in contrast to thinking we are just going to be annihilated? [2 Thessalonians 1:9]
More Discussion on Hell: Even more dilaogue about hell. (but this was a follow-up from the previous show, but the last half of the show is missing from the day before, so we missed what they were originally talking about.)

2013-01-30
Calling People Fools: (Phone cuts in & out) What did Jesus mean by calling people fool & being in danger of Hellfire yet people are called fools in the Bible. [Matthew 5:22]
Pentecost a Fulfillment of Joel: Caller doesn't think Pentecost was a fulfillment of Joel, but Steve explains that it was. [Acts 2, Joel 2]


2013-01-29
Judgment of things done in the Body: Can you explain this passage of Scripture? That we are going to be judged for things in this life. So how can there be post mortem repentance (universal reconciliation)? [2 Corinthians 5:10-11]
A book on 3 Views of Hell: Do you know of a good source that explains the different views of Hell?
