KHCB – Q & A – April 26, 2012
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (03:10) – In Genesis, it says that Eve ate the apple. It doesn’t state what fruit it was. Can you explain why people say it was the apple?
2 – (04:55) – The time that elapsed in the Garden. Is there any thought on….were Adam and Eve in the Garden for a 1,000 years before the disobedient act? We seem to think that Eve appeared and that she took the fruit the next day. Also, second question is about the churches in Revelation…if you feel that these are “church ages” or specific churches?
3 – (10:50) – How does the Bible address drugs and pain relief medicine for the “greying” population – as older believers get more aches and pains, sometimes taking medications can affect their Christian walk and may not allow them to have a clear head. Should they medicate or not. Remember Jesus, as He was on the cross, one time he takes the numbing drink and one time he doesn’t.
4 – (19:05) – Revelation vs John 18 – Jesus’ Words – There are different views on the Millennium – But in John 18 Jesus tells Pilate that “His kingdom is not of this World.” Please reconcile the view of 1,000 year reign on the face of this Earth vs. Jesus’ words.
5 – (28:20) – Hebrews 10:26 and I Cor 5 describe the apostate condition of a Believer – do these verses indicate those types of conditions resulting in I Cor 3?
6 – (33:33) – In Revelation where it talks about Hell, what does it mean “where the Worm will never die”?
7 – (39:13) – Romans 13:4 – this describes the government and uses the word “minister” – please explain the context of that word – would it be similar to one that is called to a ministry like a pastorate or a missionary – is it the same concept?
8 – (43:45) – In reference to a previous caller concerning apostasy – how do we reconcile scriptures that speak of eternal security and those that refer to apostasy like Hebrews 10:26?
9 – (50:05) – Tithes and offering – Finances are so tight that when paying tithes off the top, I have not enough money to pay rent and have to pay a late fee. But if I pay rent first, and don’t have enough to tithe Biblically. How do I deal with that?
10 – (56:14) – Hebrews 9:27 and Luke 16:19-31 – Concerning the destiny of the damned in the afterlife, I was wondering if you could discuss if they can be saved in the afterlife.
