As much as Christians might not want to admit it, it’s not unusual to question your faith. Asking and getting answers to the hard questions usually helps Christians feel more sure and solid in their faith and beliefs. Our guest will discuss some of the hard questions that many Christians wrestle with at one point or another. These include topics such as: Can I be sure of my salvation, What is the Trinity, How can a loving God send anyone to hell, Why does God allow suffering, and How do Christians interpret the Old Testament, among many more great questions! Learn how to better ‘contend for the faith’.
The Bible says our real battle isn’t against flesh and book but against entities we can’t see with mortals’ eyes. That idea can be pretty overwhelming and, if not properly understood, can lead to fear and theological confusion. That’s why we open the phones and let you ask any question you have on the topic of spiritual warfare. Join us to learn how to separate fact from fiction and let the Bible teach you about this great war – not Hollywood.
