God repenting? What a strange idea! Why would God need to repent when He is incapable of doing anything wrong? Why would the Bible even mention God repenting of evil? Hopefully, this podcast will answer the inquiring mind's questions on the matter.
To many, it seems weird to say that God hates anything. The fact of the matter is many places in scripture discuss the things and people that God abhors. But what love is so twisted that God would hate it? Tune in to discover what that love is.
There are those that say salvation can be lost or given up by the believer. Is this true? If it is, then Christ's atonement was not sufficient to save all who placed their trust in Him to save them. It also means that our salvation ultimately rests on us and not God to secure it. Which would you rather have, sinful man securing salvation, or God preserving us in salvation?
This episode will briefly cover what caused Israel to be scattered over the globe the second time. What were the different circumstances surrounding the deportations? When did they return to the land of their fathers? Does Israel play a role in the return of Jesus Christ?
When the world thinks of the word holy, they think of someone who claims they are better than everyone else - its connotation is negative. But what does the Bible say about it? Are there commands in scripture to be holy? If so, how can we do it?
Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30 gives a command for all to come to Him so that He may provide them rest. He also declares in John 6:44 that no one can come to Him unless that Father who sent Me draws us. These verses on the surface appear to contradict each other. How do we harmonize these truths and keep them in their proper tension? This episode attempts to provide the answer.
What is this doctrine? Is it Biblical? Reprobation is the idea that God has rejected some sinners in eternity past to be judged by God. Unsure of what this means? Tune in to find out. This may be the most difficult doctrine in all of scripture to grasp. This episode may also produce more questions than it answers.
What do these words mean? it is essential that we correctly define them so that we understand them in context when reading about them in Romans 8. What does foreknowledge mean according to scripture? The term is defined in this episode so that one understands how God decided to choose those who are in the kingdom of God.
Is there a part that we participate in the plan of salvation? Did Jesus fulfill a portion of the atonement when he was crucified and leave the rest up to us to complete the process by believing? Or is salvation all of God and none of us? Do we actualize salvation or does God? Tune in to find out.
Tune in find out how using the language of the Bible is the most effective way to govern our lives, bolster any argument, and learn what to do and what not to do based on the lives we learn about within the Bible.
Is there such a thing as good and bad luck? Do things happen by chance or all things determinative? What about providence, does that play a role in our daily lives? Please tune in to hopefully get some insight into this idea of luck. http://gospelofrepentance.blogspot.com/2018/06/i-wish-you-good-luck.html
A critical question that has to be answered. If someone has died in sin meaning they die in unbelief, have their sins been paid for by Christ even though they will perish? This episode will elaborate on this question and perhaps present a view to the listener they have not considered before.
When it comes to the law of Moses, it is important to give clear distinctions on what laws were contemporary and applied only to the ancient Hebrews verses what in the law has universal application to us now.

Hard times happen to all of us. Often times as a result of our sin - even we do not want to realize it! But what about when we are living right? Why does tribulation happen to us then? That is when we often ask the question why Lord? This episode will hopefully answer those questions.
These few verses I Imagine have perplexed many. But they do not have to. The question is obviously a rhetorical one - Jesus never lied, but some may believe he had from the surface reading of the text. This episode should hopefully make the matter clear.
What a strange question! Isn't evil a loose cannon that is out of control - a maverick force that God cannot even tame? Or is evil a servant of the Almighty? Does evil prove that God does not exist or does it prove God does exist? What would the world look like if evil did not pollute our world?
We hear people perhaps everyday talk about Karma, or we hear people say, "what goes around comes around"? What actually is Karma and where did it originate? Is it Biblical? http://gospelofrepentance.blogspot.com/2013/06/is-it-ok-to-believe-in-karma.html
It's so easy to look at all the problems in the world and be full of despair. Naturally, I understand those feelings. Many are asking the question, "If God is good, why are things so terrible in our world?" Many have concluded God is either unwilling and/or unable to make things better. How can a God of love allow all of this tragedy? Does God even care?
