    On todaysBible Answer Manbroadcast, Hank talks about an article he read in theWall Street Journalby Rabbi Soloveichik on the death of Lord Jonathan Sacks, a former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth. Rabbi Sacks died at the age of 72, but while he lived, he was a spell-binding orator, an orator who combined science, sociology, and the wisdom of Scripture with an eloquence that made him famous worldwide. He spoke often about the family. He said that the familyman, woman, and childis not one lifestyle choice among many. It is the best means we have yet discovered for nurturing future generations and enabling children to grow in a matrix of stability and love. At present, two communities are heading toward each other with blinding speed: one that finds its life in biblical truth and the other comprised of activists who are pushing for a radical redefinition of marriage and gender, a church remade in the image of the culture, and greatly expanded government filling the void of a once-vibrant church.

    Hank also answers the following questions:

    Do you think that the things that are happening in the world today are some type of fulfillment of Revelation?
    When we die, do we go to heaven as it is now, or will we all be raised up for the second heaven?
    When people say that there is no proof of God, I think of how scientists cant explain some things, like the creation of DNA. What are your thoughts?

    On todays Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank talks about a commercial that caught his attention while watching the news. The commercial depicts a mysterious cloud and a voice asking, Do you know for sure when you die if you are going to heaven or not? Then the voice gives an invitation to go online via a particular website address shown on the screen apparently to discover the answer. On the website, you are provided with a typical, concise Evangelical presentation of the problem of sin and Gods resolution in the Gospel, and you are invited to pray a version of the sinners prayer. While this all seems sincere, is it true that one can know for sure that their sins are forgiven and that they have eternal life simply by praying such a prayer? This is a bold and expensive evangelistic program by which people might possibly come to a profession of the Christian faith, but one which smacks of easy-believism. And even if a follow-up encounter encourages the individual with further online materials, at best it will fill them with information, which will be woefully inadequate for true reformation. What we need to do is look more closely at Scripture and Sacred Tradition to answer the question, What must I do to be saved?

    Thanksgiving as a Daily Manner of Life

    On todays Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank encourages all that are listening in to enjoy their time on Thanksgiving Day with family members and friends to the extent that they can, given current social distancing guidelines. Thanksgiving is a day that Hank looks forward to every year. Yet thanksgiving is not just a day; it is a daily manner of life. It is a key that opens the gate of Christ and allows Christians to enter and gain access to all of His wonderful provisions and even more profoundly into all of the splendor of His Being. Open for me the gates of the righteous, wrote the Psalmist, and I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. In the Wisdom of Solomon, we read that the hope of an unthankful man will melt like the wintry frost and flow away like useless water. Thus, we are exhorted to arise each morning and thank our heavenly Father for the abundance of His mercies, for the blessing of the Lord will melt like iceevaporate like worthless waterat the appearing of the first rays of sunshine.

    On todays Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank dives deep again into St. John Chrysostoms sermons on the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man, collected in the book On Wealth and Poverty. Unlike so many sermons today, St. Johns are not feel-good sermons for a feel-good generation. Rather, they are sermons laden with truths that transformhis words thunder from the past with prophetic urgency. Chrysostom writes, For the righteous, both the life hereafter and this life provide great pleasure. But the wicked and greedy are punished both here and hereafter. They are punished even here by the expectation of the retribution hereafter, and by the evil suspicion of everyone, and by the very fact of sinning and corrupting their own souls. After his fourth sermon in the series, an earthquake struck the city of Antioch. As such, his next sermon is rife with references to the earthquakes catastrophic effects. The earthquake, says St. John, manifested the power of God; its cessation showed His mercy. Nonetheless, it should make us mindful of Gods judgment, which the Antiochians had escaped for the time being. But judgment is coming, and that for all of us. Perhaps we should not fear the earthquakeor the current pandemicbut the cause of each. Fear the anger of God on account of our sins. When we rightly fear the Maker of heaven and earth, we are led from the wide road and seek the entrance of the narrow gate. Our Master is loving and filled with compassion. He knows the weakness of our nature. He seeks only one thingthat we might leave the way of transgression and enter by the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction and those that enter by it are many.

    John Chrysostom in Praise of Scripture Reading

    On todays Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank dives deep into John Chrysostoms third sermon on the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. In explicating the parable, St. Chrysostom continues to stress the importance of reading and studying the Scriptures, for the Scriptures are replete with wisdom that transforms. Consider a request the Rich Man makes of Father Abrahamthat Lazarus return from the dead to warn his brothers so that they do not experience a torment such as what he was even then experiencing. Father Abrahams reply is profound: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. Yet the Rich Man responds: No, Father Abraham, but if someone rose from the dead, they will believe him. In truth, however, they will not. Father Abraham replies again to the Rich Man, If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they listen if someone rises from the dead. The Jewish leaders living at the time of Christ proved that this is so, for they neither heeded the words of Scripture nor were convinced by Christs resurrection from the dead. In fact, after Christ had resurrected Lazarus (brother of Mary and Martha), they tried to kill him (John 1112). So, shows St. Chrysostom, even if a dead person rises, even if an angel descends from heaven, the Scriptures are more worthy of belief than any of them. For the Master of the angels, the Lord of the dead and of the living Himself, has given the Scriptures their authority. Hank contends that Chrysostoms sermons on Lazarus and the Rich Manfound in the book On Wealth and Povertyare the most poignant and profound in the annals of Christian preaching.

    The Benefits of Reading, and Q&A

    On todays Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank remarks that he often thinks of recommending books and is often told that people dont read anymore. Not wanting to capitulate to that reality, Hank discusses the benefits of reading. Reading improves discipline, vocabulary, memory, creativity, reasoning, relaxation, and it can even stave off diseases such as Alzheimer's. More importantly, reading engages us with another mind. And when it comes to reading Scripture, the implications are simply staggering. By its words, we are brought into direct communication with the mind of God. But we also have access to the minds of writers directly inspired by the Divine. Thus in the pages of the inspired text, we have mind-to-mind communication with minds that were awash in uncreated energy.
    Hank also answers the following questions:
    How do you deal with a demon-possessed person?
    I started attending a new church after a long time away. I have people praying for me who tell me that they see all these different colors around me. Is this normal?

The Orthodox answer man

With all due respect I think it might be time for Hank to curb his Orthodox bent, if that’s even possible. I have listened to Hank for more then twenty years it is hard to hear him speak of things like Mary’s eternal virginity, praying to stone/glass placards (idols by any other name) and praying to departed saints- Orthodoxy is true Christianity, however it has more then a few errors, errors Hank used to be very reliable to point out.
