    Best of BAM: The New Heaven and Earth, and Q&A

    Best of BAM: The New Heaven and Earth, and Q&A

    On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank shares his thoughts on the new heaven and new earth as described by the Apostle Peter in 2 Peter 3:10. Rather than an altogether different cosmos, Hank affirms that the heavens and the earth will be resurrected, not annihilated. God does not scrap His creations but restores them; therefore, Paradise lost will become Paradise restored. In light of this, Hank asks the question: if the cosmos and we ourselves will one day be resurrected, how then should we live?

    Hank also answers the following questions:

    If Satan would not have tempted Adam and Eve to sin, would he still have been condemned to hell?
    Will Iran be called Persia someday as spoken about in end time prophecy?
    Is it okay for Christians to be involved in bodybuilding? Is this vanity?
    What are your thoughts on those who were born to fulfill God’s purposes, like Judas? Was Judas predestined to betray Christ or could he have chosen differently?

    The Power of God’s Dynamic Presence, and Q&A

    The Power of God’s Dynamic Presence, and Q&A

    On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/21/22), Hank shares his thoughts on the power of God’s dynamic presence. If we take the doctrine of omnipresence literally and not figuratively, then God is everywhere all the time. And although His presence is with each moment of our lives, we can often resemble the proverbial fish out of water complaining of thirst. Imagining God’s presence is one thing; actually sensing it is something else. Is it any wonder that the apostle Paul exhorted us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds? Perhaps if our minds were sufficiently renewed, we would cease being thirsty fish.

    Hank also answers the following questions:

    When Cain was sent to the land of Nod after he killed Abel, where did all of the other people come from?
    How do we define legalism in the church? My church prohibits alcohol; are they being legalistic?
    Since God is omniscient and sovereign, how can we have free will?
    What do you think about Christians boycotting businesses that support gay marriage?

The Bible Answer Man Podcast

I have listened to Hank at least 30 years! I was so thankful to find his podcasts not too long after his show on the radio had ended. I have purchased several of Hank’s books and also read the Christian Research Institute website, packed with very interesting and much needed Christian articles, and also Equip.org! Another great website where one can purchase Hank’s books and gain more knowledge!
I have learned so much about the Bible from Hank over the years, I love his call in shows, Hank is very knowledgeable about the Bible, he takes the time to explain things! Hank does a great job of interviewing guests he has on his shows. I look forward to this podcast each night! I’m thankful my adult daughters also listen to Hank!
Thank you so very much for all that you do, Hank! Your passion for the Lord can be heard in your voice and seen through all of your works!!!
It’s fantastic you are also on Instagram and Facebook!!
