Welcome to the podcast of the Bible Answer Man broadcast with bestselling author and CRI President Hank Hanegraaff! On the Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers your questions with well-reasoned answers to equip you in the essentials of the historic Christian faith and strengthen your walk with the Lord. When it comes to the essentials of Christianity, there must be unity: "In essentials, unity; nonessentials, liberty; and in all things, charity."
Misconceptions of the Trinity, and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/26/20), Hank brings up Samuel Paty, the French teacher who was recently beheaded because he had shown cartoons of Muhammad in a lesson on free speech. What Hank finds interesting is that news media like the BBC are still unable to get right the meaning of “Allahu Akbar.” While media pundits seek to convince the gullible that “Allahu Akbar” means “God is great,” in reality, it means “Allah is greater.” Greater than all that is—including greater than the Christian God. Of course, that cannot possibly be true. Allah cannot be great, let alone greater than God, because the greatest of all gods would not misapprehend the Trinity. As Hank often says, virtually every single theological heresy begins with a misconception of the nature of God. The Lord God came to bring truth and life. The truth that Christ reveals is the reality of who God is, and the life He gave humankind is nothing short of the life of the Holy Trinity.

Responding To the Pope’s Support of Civil Unions for Gay Couples
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/22/20), Hank devotes his time to discuss a headline he saw on the front page of The Wall Street Journal this morning. The headline read as follows: “Pope Backs Civil Unions for Gay Couples.” While Pope Francis’ remarks chronicled in the article are not considered official papal teaching, they are problematic. He said, “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.” And as the pope famously said elsewhere, “Who am I to judge?” This is the head of the largest body of Christians in the entire world—If he can’t judge such matters rightly, who can? While the Bible makes plain that Christians are never to judge self-righteously or hypocritically, they are most certainly called to judge. And what that means with respect to same-sex sexuality and its various permutations, is the call to reject that which God clearly rejects.
The Importance of Natural Moral Law and Natural Rights
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/21/20), Hank talks more about the book Politics for Christians: Statecraft as Soulcraft by Francis J. Beckwith.https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2010wa/ This book will go a long way to helping Christians understand what is essential to know about government and its laws, as well as natural moral laws and natural rights. Looking at the title, one may wonder “how is statecraft soulcraft?” By statecraft, the Greek philosopher Aristotle meant that the state by policy and moral ideology shapes the quality of a citizen’s character. This is central to a Christian understanding of politics. Liberal democracy assumes natural rights, and because natural rights require natural moral law, liberal democracy assumes a natural moral law—rights that the state is obligated to honor. The American Founders believed that this objective natural moral law, the foundation of natural rights, is best accounted for by the existence of God and can be known apart from Scripture.
The Gift of Self-Government in a Liberal Democracy, and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/20/20), Hank invites listeners to imagine for a moment an empire that is invincible in power and majesty. Ruler over the rest of the nations of the world, but not just for a few hundred years, but for the better part of a millennium. For six hundred years the city of Rome towered above the nations. The invincibility of this empire was so certain that she actually bore a moniker—eternal. And then something unthinkable happened; Alaric and his Arian hordes breached the walls and sacked the immortal city. Pagan Romans looked on in utter disbelief as statues of ancient deities were pulled down. And then Christians began to wonder if indeed the end of the world was now at hand. When the Barbarians destroyed the Roman Empire in the West, it was the Christian Church that put together a new order called Europe. It was the Church that took the lead in rule by law, the pursuit of knowledge, and the expression of culture. And that is precisely what needs to happen in the modern epoch.
