    2. What is the feast referred to in Zechariah 14?

    Questions in this Episode
    1. Is "the spirit of Christmas" something that is antithetical to the Christian faith? It seems very consumeristic to me.
    2. Does God give us individualized instructions on life choices?
    3. I've heard Hebrews 13:17 used over the years to justify an almost cult like obedience to a pastor. From what color shirts to wear to justifying questionable decisions. Does this verse really command use to blindly do as we are told?
    4. Can a pastor require weeks of sinless behavior before taking communion?
