  1. @ 7:40 – What did you mean when you said ” your sin will find you out?”
  2. @ 14:41 – First question is on Mark 16:9-19. Why were these verses added to the Scriptures? My second question is what’s going on with taking up serpents and drinking anything deadly?
  3. @ 20:15 – What is the main purpose of free will?
  4. @ 28:36 – Is struggling with depression the same as walking in darkness?
  5. @ 34:47 – As I cannot be without sin, why wouldn’t Matthew 7:1 apply to me vs 1 John 2:4 ? What about forgotten (and therefore unconfessed) sin?
  6. @ 38:41 – Is sacrifice to the god Molech in the Old Testament comparable to modern day abortion?
  7. @ 44:45 – In Matthew 7:21-23 Jesus says “I never knew you” to people who said they cast out demons and did other deeds in the name of Jesus. By whose power did they do that? How are they different than us who claim to know God? Are those people mentioned in Matt 7:21-23 any different than Pentecostal or charismatic church’s?
  8. @ 49:16 – I’m going through the entire Bible cover to cover again (chronologically this time) and I always want to skip through the geneologies and laws, all the “boring” bits. I know they’re included for very good reasons, but can you give some pastorly wisdom or encouragement as to why those shouldn’t be skipped? (Or pastorly permission to just go ahead and skip them?)
  9. @ 57:40 – When we all die and also the Rapture happens what will the Holy Spirit’s function be in Heaven?

  3. @ 16:38 –  There are so many different versions of the Bible, with so many different books added and subtracted. How does someone know that they are reading the right version?
  4. @ 31:27 – This is a very loaded question. Can you explain how God views gay people? How is it that someone can grow up knowing the scriptures, yet still feel the urge to love and even marry another of the same gender? Today’s society pushes to accept gays and gay marriage. So, what is Cross Connection’s belief on society’s acceptance vs God’s word in the scripture. What are all of the sins?
  5. @ 46:56 – How come we have to choose every moment to walk in the light instead of just once? Why isn’t it instinctual after we choose it once?

  7. @ 54:43 –  Who must I confess my secret sin to?
  8. @ 58:38 – Can the devil influence your dreams?
  9. @ 1:00:33 –  James 5:14-15 talks about having the elders pray for me if I’m sick. Who exactly are the “elders” and what are your thoughts on doing this vs just having my friends or family pray for me?
