Questions & Timestamps:
- @ 13:31 – Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” How did you come to the conclusion that the fruit of the spirit is love which produces joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control? I like that interpretation because it makes it easier to understand but that’s not how it reads.
- @ 19:10 – Why is it often so difficult to love others?
- @ 26:32 – Does God still love those who are responsible for mass shootings?
- @ 29:44 – How can God be so loving and yet allow so much evil in our world?
- @ 33:27 – Is it possible to know God’s love and allow our hearts to grow numb to its reality and power?
- @ 43:33 – Do you think our culture struggles with loving others because we have traded spending quality time with each other for social media and settled for more isolation?
- @ 47:00 – My 8 yr old has asked me a couple of tricky questions. 1. Does the baby who dies before birth or even shortly after go to heaven if they don’t know God? 2. What about the kids/adults w special needs? We have family who have lost both still born and child with down’s.
- @ 58:47 – Can you talk about what love looks like in different situations? Is the best kind of love always sacrificial or can it be more loving in some situations to set boundaries? How can you tell the difference? And are there any biblical examples of lovingly set boundaries?
- @ 1:09:14 – I don’t see pastors in the New Testament. Are modern churches, and pastors Biblical?
