Tree of "Wisdom" (Knowledge of Good & Evil):Why did God put the Tree of "Wisdom" (he meant knowledge of good & evil) if He didn't want them to partake of it? For tempting? Testing? Was Adam an atheist?
Past Life Regression:The caller's father SORT'VE believes the Bible, but he's also heard about people in their past lives where they are pretty accurate w/ stuff that happened to them, can describe stuff that really happened in history.
Universal Reconciliationism:Does Philippians 2:10-11 give evidence of universal reconciliationism, because if it's coerced, it won't really be a confession & bringing glory to God? [Philippians 2:10-11, Romans 14:11]
An Israelite marrying a Moabite:I was just reading in the Deuteronomy that if a Jew married an Moabite that they could not enter the temple & were unclean for 10 generations. So how did David get away w/ being able to enter the temple since it hadn't been 10 generations yet....or Solomon for that matter? [Deuteronomy 23:3]
Light before Sun & Moon:There was light for the earth for 3 days before God made the Sun, so if He would've taken the sun away again after the 3rd day, would there still be light, what there was before God made the sun? [Genesis 1:3-5, 14-18]
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?
