    Should Churches Be Aggressive Towards the World?

    Questions in this Episode
    1. If Adam and Eve sinned by eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge and Good and Evil, is it a sin to pray about knowledge, to gain knowledge? I know there is a difference between knowledge and wisdom.
    2. The church I grew up in was extremely aggressive in the way it talked about judgment and the truth of the Bible as opposed to the ways of the world. I left the church for a time mainly because of this but am plugged into a church now and the teaching is very different. They still teach the Bible but things just aren’t as strict or demanding. I’m just wondering which form of Christianity is true, and do you have to be aggressive towards the world in order to prove that you are really a Christian?
    3. My son is asking me if God created evil and if he used it for his own purposes?
    4. What does the Bible say about conspiracy theories?
    5. How can I bring someone to God who is afraid of him without pushing them away?
    6. My son is incredibly smart and while he agrees that there is a God, he is having a hard time figuring out Jesus. How do I share the truth of the gospel with him when he seems too smart for his own good?

Love the podcast!

I recommend that every follower of Christ listen to this podcast daily! It’s a great thing to set some time aside each day on top of daily prayer and scripture study to learn something new about the gospel. Thanks for an awesome podcast!
