On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank welcomes assistant professor of philosophy, Adam C. Pelser to discuss his article in the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL titled “Developing Discernment in Devotional Reading: A Critical Examination of Jesus Calling and One Thousand Gifts.” Aside from examining these books for biblical accuracy, Adam gives four tips for honing your discernment skills: keep watch for unbiblical worldviews, using ecstatic experiences as the measure for spiritual growth, practices that distort spiritual vision, and distortions of the gospel, as well as the danger of reading Sarah Young’s words as if they are the words of Jesus Himself.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- I just wanted to comment on the interview about Sarah Young and Ann Voskamp’s books. Do we sometimes strain out a gnat and swallow a camel in this regard? Have you personally found some of Sarah Young’s words to be troubling?
- I am reading a book called I Am the Word by Paul Selig and I want to make sure this is okay. Why do Muslims reject Jesus as the Son of God?
- What are the beliefs of modern Jews about the afterlife, and what are the qualifications to enter heaven or hell?
- Why don’t you believe that miracles are the norm? If this is true, how do we reconcile this with Jesus’ words that we will do greater things than He did?
