Steve makes an interjectory announcement about getting together w/ like-minded people:Steve's offers his effort/availability to try to get people of like-minded who are in the same area in touch w/ each other so they can fellowship with each other.
Spirit & Truth:We have to worship God in Spirit & in Truth, so what does that mean? Was He changing how it was done right then because how could they do that up to that point since there were no regenerated Christians yet? [John 14:23-24]
Satan a Fallen Angel or the Tempter:If Satan was created at the Tempter, we'd have to attribute evil to God because Satan would have no culpability? Why would God judge Satan? You couldn't really say Satan was evil then.
Men & Women Equality:There's a lot of talk of Men & Women having equality, but Paul says Man was made for the glory of God, & that women were made for the glory of man, What does Steve think about that? [1 Corinthians 11:7, Genesis 1:26-27; 2]
Long-Term Missionary Work vs Short-Term Missions:Caller wants to make a distinction between short terms Missions & long-term Missionary Work. He wants to recommend 2 good books on the subject: "Giving Wisely- Killing with Kindness or Empowering Lasting Transformation?" by Jonathan Martin, & "When Helping Hurts" by Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert.
God Killing Innocent People:Caller has some friends who went from Christian to Atheist & want to know why did God kill innocent life when Israel came out of Egypt to take over the land of Canaan if He doesn't want people to go to hell?
New Home Church:Look for a New Home Church & wondering about Calvary Chapel, but there seems to be some lack of Church Discipline, &, there's a Moses Model church hierarchy there, where ONE person is in charge, & can't be held accountable by anyone else.
Hell:Only temporary torment for the view of conditional immortality & so what are the verses that support this, that the punishment will be proportionate? Gnashing & Weeping of teeth seem to be supporting the traditional view. [Luke 12:47-48, Matthew 11:22]
Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me:God was just looking away for a minute sort've like when your own child might be seriously injured, you just sort've want to look away even though you love the child very much. [Matthew 27:46]
Alcoholic Consumption:People tell the caller that Jesus only made UN-fermented wine when He did the miracle at the wedding. They suggest that Jesus would not sin by drinking alcohol. But caller thinks it might be just about not getting drunk.
