Bible Answer Man with Hank Hanegraaff

 

Encore: Allah vs The Triune God and Q&A

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Hank Hanegraaff

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank compares the Triune God of Christianity with the Unitarian god of Islam. We hear the words “Allahu Akbar” over and over again. They have been imprinted on our consciousness by the cries of terrorists, including the chief hijacker on 911. The phrase means “Allah is greater,” but in truth, Allah cannot be the greatest for three reasons. First, the greatest of all gods would not misapprehend the Trinity. Second, he would not offer Islamic jihadists a paradise of joy for their immoral jihad. Third, the Unitarian god of Islam by definition lacks the moral perfection of love. In Christianity, God is a triad of persons in an eternal self-giving love relationship. Only a triune God can be personal and experienced by personal human beings. And although finite beings cannot fully comprehend the mystery of the Trinity, we bow our knee before God’s self-revelation to us in Scripture.

 

Hank also answers the following question:

 

What was Jesus’ body like after the resurrection?

The First Advent and Q&A - Tuesday, December 11, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank mentions the rapid approaching of the celebration of the first Advent. Advent is a season in which the Christian church celebrates the coming in flesh of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The glory of Advent finds its genesis in Old Testament prophecies that point forward to the coming incarnation of Christ. The beauty of the gospel is that Abraham was promised a royal seed—and that seed is Christ. However, as the Apostle Paul explains in Galatians 3:29, “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” What that means is that you are a child who has been adopted and therefore an heir of the riches that God has promised to his people.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

What does the Bible say about suicide?

Isn’t suicide a lack of trust in God?

Last Call for Liberty, Political Division, and Q&A - Monday, December 10, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank stresses the importance of Os Guinness’ new book, Last Call for Liberty. If you care about American liberties and the future of our nation, Last Call for Liberty is an absolute must-read. Few issues are more fundamental than our most basic liberties… and those liberties are under attack like never before. Political debate has degenerated into degrading and barbaric incivility. American leaders and opinion leaders are at each other’s throats intent on tearing each other apart. Many Americans are seething with rage over other Americans and so America is locked in a mortal struggle for what each side believes is the soul of the republic. As Os Guinness puts it, what we are seeing is not politics as usual, but politics in a dangerous radical style led by leaders who should know better.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

Do animals have souls?

Was the wine that Jesus turned from water at the wedding at Cana alcoholic?

In the KJV it says “in Earth as it is in Heaven,” but other versions have it as “on Earth as it is in Heaven.” Which one is right?

Was Jesus in the order of Melchizedek?

I’ve heard about the implementation of Buddhist audio tapes in public schools. Is this a concern?

Best of BAM Q&A: Theistic Evolution, One True Religion and Islam Controversy - Saturday, December 8, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers the following questions:

 

I recently heard a teaching that Christ not only died physically on the cross, but spiritually. What do you think about this?

A friend of mine has been talking about theistic evolution and sending me information from BioLogos; do you have any information on them?

Do you think there is only one true religion?

The Prime Minister of Pakistan wants the United Nations to pass a resolution to ban the criticism of Islam—what are your thoughts?

When and how do we evaluate Church tradition?

What should we as Christians do in response to the migrant crisis?

Last Call for Liberty, America’s Choice, and Q&A - Friday, December 7, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank highlights a section from Os Guinness’ new book, Last Call for Liberty, where Guinness points out that the freedom of the American experiment hangs by a thread and we must make a choice. Will you choose between 1776—the American Revolution, or 1789—the French Revolution. One leads to renewal and restoration—the other to decadence and decline. The choice that you must make is yours and yours alone—and so also, will be the consequences.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

What’s the difference between the Nephilim in Genesis 6 and demon possession in the New Testament?

If a demon possessed person has a child, will their child be demon possessed as well?

Saint Nicholas, Global Warming, and Q&A - Thursday, December 6, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank celebrates the life of Saint Nicholas, a 4th century Christian Bishop who valiantly supported the doctrine of the Trinity at the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. Saint Nicholas was the inspiration for the legendary figure Santa Claus, but as Hank points out, rather than supplant the Savior with Santa, we can use Saint Nicholas as a reminder to graciously support God-ordained ministries so that the message of salvation can reach those who have not yet received it. Hank also discusses an article he read this morning from The Federalist that he found to be hilarious. “Climate Change Alarmism Is The World’s Leading Cause Of Hot Gas” by David Harsanyi talks about recent events surrounding climate change and points out some of the fearmongering that climate change alarmists have been putting out as of late.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

I’ve heard Andrew Wommack say that our sins are forgiven before we even commit them. Is this true?

Are teachings like the rapture and other escapist views misguided?

George H.W. Bush, Heaven, and Q&A - Wednesday, December 5, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank mentions the passing of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush. Cartoonist Marshall Ramsey created a memorial illustration for the 41st president that went viral. In the illustration, George H.W. Bush, the former Navy pilot and World War II hero, has flown a TBM Avenger to the pearly gates to be reunited with his wife Barbara who died earlier this year, and daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3. Hank points out that it’s important to recognize that there are some things that appear in cartoons that we assume to be true, that are not. Thus Hank points out that rather than waiting at the pearly gates, George, Barbara, and Robin are currently absent their bodies and present with the Lord, one day to be reunited with their bodies.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

Where do I turn for sound biblical teaching to refute the false teachings of ministries like Restored to Freedom?

Why did God create Satan knowing that he would turn against Him? Was this supposed to happen to teach us about evil and suffering?

Last Call for Liberty and Q&A - Tuesday, December 4, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank gives a quick word on the latest resource available for your support of the ministry of CRI, Last Call for Liberty: How America’s Genius for Freedom Has Become Its Greatest Threat by Os Guinness. If you care about American liberties and the future of our nation, Last Call for Liberty is an absolute must-read. Few issues are more fundamental than our most basic liberties… and those liberties are under attack like never before. The good news is that this dangerous direction need not be our destiny, but only if those concerned are willing to act in time.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

I’m having difficulty understanding God’s foreknowledge; can you help me?

Does the passage about the sheep and the goats in Matthew 25 contradict salvation by faith alone?

Is baptism necessary for salvation?

I think the story of Joseph being sold into slavery by his brothers is helpful for your first caller.

Hanukkah and Q&A - Monday, December 3, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank goes into detail on the origins of Hanukkah, a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in the second century B.C. It’s a great opportunity for us to share fellowship with those that can see that there’s more to the story; that Daniel looks forward and sees the Babe of Bethlehem, who would set up a kingdom that will never end, a kingdom we will participate in as believers for all eternity.

 

Hank also answers the following questions:

 

John 19:14 says that Jesus was crucified at about the sixth hour, but Mark 15:25 says it was the third hour; have you looked into this?

God is with everybody—including nonbelievers—all the time. What are your thoughts on this?

Will the third temple eventually be built? Would the Anti-Christ be in there?

A lot of people believe the temple mentioned by Jesus is actually a metaphor for our body, is that true?

Best of BAM: Suicide, Roe v. Wade, and Q&A - Saturday, December 1, 2018

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank mentions an article on the rise of suicides in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide rates have gone up in every state over the last several years. It is the 10th leading cause of death in America. Some would think that suicide is a secular problem, but the truth of the matter is that suicide is not relegated to any particular segment of society. Hank is frequently asked if suicide is an unforgivable sin, and while it is not unforgivable, it is a direct attack on the sovereignty of the very one who knit us together in our mother’s womb. Hank also shares the Alabama Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Jessie Phillips v. State of Alabama, in which they ruled that the value of the life of an unborn child is no less than the value of the lives of other persons. In a concurring opinion, Justice Tom Parker boldly called on the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Hank also answers the following questions:

What is Universalism?

In John 9, why did the disciples think that the man born blind had sinned?

Why did Jesus heal the blind man at Bethsaida twice?

Was Jesus’ temptation similar to ours? How could that be if he didn’t have the original sin that we were born with?
