Sword Contradiction Statements by Jesus:In one place in the Bible Jesus says that if live by the sword you'll die by the sword, but then later He tells His disciples to get a sword. Why the contradiction? [Matthew 26:52, Luke 22:31-38]
Kingdom of God Now or Later:Is the Kingdom of God right now or not until the future yet? Didn't it officially come into being right before the death of Christ on the cross, because during the Lord's Supper He said He wasn't going to take it, & even rejected it once on the cross, but right before He died, He accepted it, so was that establishing the Kingdom right then?

PBS Special on Noah's Ark:I was watching a PBS special on the Flood & Noah's Ark, & they said that it happened Epic of Gilgamesh which was written way before Genesis, so Moses just got it from that. Is that true?
Paul & James' Gospel of Faith & Works:There seems to be contradiction in the conclusion of what actually saves us, Paul saying in Romans that it's completely by faith, but James says it's both Faith AND Works.

Jesus Coming back Contradictions:These 2 passages here about the second coming of Christ (so the caller believes) seems to be saying opposing things, & so can Steve explain the difference? [Mark 13, 2 Thessalonians 4]
Doctrinal Disagreements of Moral Significance:I was listening to your lectures on "strategy for unity" & was wondering what you thought about disagreeing with doctrinal disagreements of moral implications? What about war, divorce & remarriage, forcible resistance, heresy, & false prophets? [Romans 14]
Catholic Communion:Caller who just called about communion calls back & wants to talk about the Transubstantiation of communion in the Catholic church, the bread & wine turning into the body & blood of Jesus' body. [John 6]
The Light of the Body:Jesus was talking about the eye being the lamp of the body, was He talking about the Aura? [Matthew 6:22, Proverbs 30:17, Matthew 20:1-16, Mark 7, Proverbs 23:6, Proverbs 22:9, Proverbs 28:2]
