KHCB – Q & A – January 27, 2022
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (05:15) – Recently, I heard a pastor say in his sermon that even in a pandemic, a person cannot worship or praise God alone. He cited a verse that says “we are not to neglect the assembly as some do”. This e-mailer asks that you please discuss this for me according to the scripture. Thank you for your loving service.
2 – (07:38) – I’ve been struggling with this verse –Mark 4:12 – “so that, “’they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’” My question is, if God is willing to save all men, why did Jesus Christ did not want them (unintelligible) might not be forgiven. Thank you guys and I hope you have a good night.
3 – (10:05) – I can’t remember the exact verse, it might be in I Corinthians 7, but somewhere in this general vicinity in the Bible, it talks about the unbelieving spouse maybe saved by the believing spouse – don’t get a divorce if you are married and come to know the Lord. Is that the truth? Does that mean that the unbeliever does not have to accept the Lord?
4 – (14:45) – It looks like the question deals with “election” from I Corinthians 1:18 and Romans 8:29. I want to be sure that you can preach to some people for here to kingdom-come and they will never believe. I need to know if God actually knew (God knows everything) decide some people go to Hell or some people go to Heaven – based on those passages.
5 – (19:42) – Why is there an epidemic, seemingly, of abusive men – in and out of the church?
6 – (22:08) – My question is – in John 1:51 “He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.” When will that happen?
7 – (24:55) – In the parable where the father sends his two sons to work in the vineyard – which one did his father’s will?
8 – (34:21) – There’s a verse that was quoted by my senior pastor last Sunday – he said “Healing is the children’s bread”. I searched the scripture all over and could not find it. Finally, I was able to locate Matthew 15:24-26. Can you please confirm to me on this verse?
9 – (39:10) – The Bible says in I Corinthians 6:20 – “you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” So what does he mean by “honor”? How important is the physical body? Is this what He judges us for? Is that why we take care of it and love it and respect it and keep it clean and don’t defile it? What did he mean by that?
10 – (42:00) – My question is from the whole book of Colossians. It starts out Colossians 1 through 3 and climaxes with a lot of pie-in-the-sky stuff. And chapter 3 it says “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” But we Christians are always talking about how we need to behave and how we need to act and how we need to do this and that. And Colossians covers that starting in chapter 3:17. It talks about the wives, the husbands, the children, the servants, the masters – it delineates specifically the practical things that us Christians need to do every day. Why can’t we skip all the pie-in-the-sky and just study 3:17 to the end of Colossians?
11 – (45:07) – My question is out of Psalms 83:1 “Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! 2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.” So in verse 2, it says his enemies. So I am trying to find out who are his enemies. And it starts naming them in verse 6, 7, 8 and 9. I’m thinking the pastors, the shepherds, and the people of God should know God’s enemies. So, are you familiar with this scripture? Who are these people today?
12 – (48:30) – This email deals with Hebrews 11 – and it’s talking about receiving promises and not receiving promises. Because in Hebrews 11:13 there’s a section that says these died in faith not having received the promises and in verse 17, it says Abraham received some of the promises. The e-mailer is trying to figure out what’s going on with the promises and if Abraham received some of the promises, but not other promises, and if so, are there certain eternal rewards to be had by hoping in a promise from God and ultimately not receiving that promise?
13 – (51:40) – I have found what appears to be conflicting interpretations on Hell. I was raised to believe that Hell was a place of eternal punishment for unbelievers. However, some verses appear to lend credence to annihilation-ism and speak of the unsaved as perishing or being destroyed. Which is correct?
