On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank talks about fasting, a topic that is covered in the new book by Jay W. Richards, Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting. Hank recounts an illustration from the wise Cappadocian Father who used the merchant ship as an apt illustration for fasting, where a loaded ship is sunk by minor waves but the ship with a captain smart enough to toss overboard the extra weight will ride above even surging waves, and so it is with overindulged bodies.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- I found a teacher by the name of Dr. Gene Kim on YouTube, what is your opinion on him?
- I was told that the generation that sees Israel become a nation will not pass. Have you heard of that? What is a biblical generation?
- I get confused about how Jesus died both physically and spiritually upon the cross to atone for sin. Were Jesus and God separated?
