Pastor and bestselling author Andrew Farley's weekly messages and radio shows.
What does it mean to work out your salvation with fear and trembling? What is the discipline of the Lord? Is it the same as punishment? Does the Bible really tell Christians to “die to self”?
Do we need to pray daily for forgiveness? Is God punishing us with earthly consequences? Can women serve as elders? Should communion be closed? Should we try to die to self?
Where is the fine line between obedience and grace? If a Christian dies by suicide, do they lose their salvation?
My friend is saying that we can lose our salvation if we don’t keep the faith. Is that true? Is demonic possession still a thing today? What about deliverance ministries? Can you help me understand Mark 16 and Acts 10 in regard to “new tongues”? Why is Paul seemingly so harsh with a churchgoer in 1 Corinthians 5? What does 1 Corinthians 9 have to say about support for ministers? My church doesn’t really teach the grace of God, so I...
Questions for Romans 4:16-5:1
Is it possible for someone to be saved but still try to follow the Law? If we don’t bear fruit as Christians, might God cast us into outer darkness? Sometimes I feel so free and then I lose that feeling. I wonder if there’s something I can do to consistently feel the freedom of being under grace?
Why is Romans 3-5 so important to understand? Does the New Testament encourage financial transparency in churches? Is Romans 1 really just describing pedophilia or child abuse? What does it mean to meditate on the Word day and night?
*Previously aired* Why does Paul say that deacons should be the husband of only one wife? What was the purpose of fasting? Are Christians required to fast today? How does being under grace help our struggle against sin? What does it mean that we’re saved from the wrath of God? Is that about the final judgment or something else?
*Previously aired* Why did Jesus say He did not come to destroy the Law but fulfill it? Why did Jesus tell people to ask for the Holy Spirit? Don’t Christians already have the Holy Spirit? I struggle with 40 years of difficult of challenging circumstances. I wonder why I don’t feel better now that I believe in God’s grace. Am I doing something wrong? Does John 6 support the idea of God’s individual selection of people for salvation...
Did Jesus travel to India? Are all world religions similar? My friends talk about a second anointing and speaking in tongues. I wonder if my prayer life needs to be more enhanced, because sometimes I feel like it’s limp. Why does Jesus say “Depart from Me, I never knew you”? How do you come to Jesus as a little child? Which Bible version should I read? Is there a second and separate judgment for Christians? What about crowns in Hea...
Abraham and David are perfect examples of those who were credited with righteousness and had their sins covered. By faith, they were forgiven and made right before God.
But we have something more than a credited righteousness and something better than a sin covering.
Find out why you can celebrate God’s grace even more than Abraham or David in this eye-opening message on Romans 4.
Questions for Romans 4:1-15
What is “binding and loosing” in Matthew 16? Did I blaspheme the Holy Spirit by using profanity related to God? Does God send natural disasters to punish people today or to get their attention?
How do we balance discipline and legalism? I went through a 12-step program but then seemed to only fail afterward. Why am I convicted about drinking but not overeating? I think I fell from grace and now I’m trying to get back with God. How do I put God first and not myself?
Why does Paul say that deacons should be the husband of only one wife? What was the purpose of fasting? Are Christians required to fast today? How does being under grace help our struggle against sin? What does it mean that we’re saved from the wrath of God? Is that about the final judgment or something else?
What is worldly sorrow and how is it different from godly sorrow? Is Calvinism a totally different gospel?
Who were the people who “sin apart from the law” in Romans 2? Why does Ephesians 6 say that we have an undying love for Jesus? How should we understand “perseverance of the saints” within Calvinism? I’m frustrated, because I want to stop sinning, but I can’t seem to stop. Can you help?
How should we celebrate the Lord’s Supper? Is it okay for nonbelievers to participate in the Lord’s Supper? With a faith-based definition of sin, is avoiding sin now harder? Why does Romans 3:31 say by faith we “establish” the Law? How can I encourage someone else to attend church? What does it mean to avoid the appearance of evil? Is Matthew 7:21 about a Christian losing their salvation?
The Law only speaks to one group – unbelievers. And it shuts everyone up! But thankfully, apart from the Law we can enjoy being 100% right with God for free. And God’s need for justice has been fully satisfied: The wages of sin is death. Jesus died. Do the math and celebrate!
Does this mean we bash the Law or hate the Law? No, it means the opposite: Those who opt for God’s grace are the only ones who truly respect the Law as both p...
How would you answer someone who claims that if you continue to commit the same sin, you will not be forgiven? Can you help me understand Ephesians 4:7-11? I know we don’t have to ask for forgiveness, but I feel so distant from God when I don’t. Can you help?
