Pastor's Q&A Panel
18:50 Carey Hardy
Question 1: Cautiousness / Fearless
“Why do Christians fear the idea of death, and sometimes even talking about death? Why are multitudes of Christians, it seems, so fearful of the virus known as COVID-19? What is the balance between being cautious and fearless?"
Proverbs 29:25, Hebrews 2:14-15
32:10 Bob Whitney
Question 2: Evangelism / Self-Preservation
“How could/should believers in Christ turn discussions about death and dying, especially in this unprecedented time, to a point of gospel conversation?"
Acts 20:24, 1 Timothy 5:23
41:52 Dr. Sam Horn
Question 3: Peace / Judgment Passing
“When Christians disagree about the wearing of masks, or don’t slavishly practice social distancing, how/what does Romans 14 & 15 come into play?"
58:53 Chris Bruynzeel
Question 4: Worldly Awareness / Worldly Abstinence
“How much time/impact is there of those professing Christians who seem to watch more news about current events than they do in spending their time reading and pondering Scripture?"
2 Corinthians 10:1-6
1:05:35 Jerry Wragg
Question 5: Social Justice / Biblical Justice
“What are the definitions of phrases we hear often today, such as ’Social justice,’ ‘Racism/Ethnic divisions,’ ‘Critical Race Theory,’ and ‘Intersectionality’?"
1:15:08 Jeff Crotts
Question 6: Erecting Walls of Division / “Where would you go in Scripture to refute or correct the idea of continuing ethnic barriers and divisions within the body of Christ? How did the Apostle Paul deal with that questions in Ephesians 2?"
1:24:44 Bruce Walker
Question 7: Correction / Confrontation in Political Candidate Choices
“What would you say or how would you counsel/correct a Christian who, especially in a national election cycle, is quite critical of certain political candidates? How would you seek to mediate between two Christians who are at two very opposite places of the political spectrum and who are each very discouraged about the other?"
1:29:47 Todd Murray
Question 8: Civil Obedience / Civil Disobedience
“How would a church need to carefully navigate the current matter of their civil obedience to various government restrictions and when or how would you counsel a church to civilly disobey their government?"
