So, taking up where I left off, here's an exercise in thinking like a disciple. Read the root question carefully.
To which one of these questions can you not even begin to give a clear, plain, simple, definitive, directly-Biblical answer?
- What is God like?
- How did all things begin?
- How do we know God?
- What is man's spiritual state?
- Is Jesus truly man?
- Is Jesus truly God?
- What must I do to be saved?
- Does Jesus keep those He saves?
- Is it righteous to have sex with anyone other than one's spouse?
- Can I kill someone if he makes me mad?
- How do I tell which feelings are God's way of nudging me to do something, or God "talking" to me, and which are just my flesh, my imagination, or something else?
- Is the Bible God's Word?
- Does the Bible tell us everything we need to know, in order to know and serve God?
- What is a pastor's main job?
- Should I take things that belong to other people without their permission?
- If I'm saved by grace, may I just go on sinning?
- Did Jesus really die?
- What did Jesus' death accomplish?
- Did Jesus really rise bodily from the dead?
- Will Jesus really return bodily one day?
- Will Christians be raised bodily?
- Should I study the Bible?
