Freedom of choice is very important to citizens of the United States. If God knows the end from the beginning as well as all our thoughts, do we still have real freedom of choice? Is there a difference between "freedom" and "license" to do something?
Salvation – it is at the very core of Christian faith. Salvation is something we all want and something that we as Christians all claim. That’s good...for us. Now the harder part. What about unbelievers? Where do they fit? Do all unbelievers have the same opportunity as we do? What about those who never heard of Jesus and died in that ignorance? Does the Bible give us concrete answers to these questions? Stay with us as we open and discuss an incredibly difficult question – can one who dies an unbeliever still be saved?
Baptism. It is a sacred Christian symbol. Its meaning will vary depending on one's denomination, but in all cases it holds a very sacred place in the lives of believers. There are many questions that can be raised regarding this symbol. Who should be baptized? Is it necessary for salvation? Is baptism merely a symbol or more than that? Now, built upon the base of baptism, is another question: Does God know or predestinate who will be His chosen ones? If so, then why baptize? Might we be baptizing the wrong people - people who actually have not been chosen and therefore giving them false hope? On this podcast we look at baptism in the context of predestination.
