On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (06/17/22), Hank discusses the grand social engineering experiment that has been aggressively challenging and reshaping culture. An article in the Washington Post details the story of M Barclay, the first non-binary transgender member of the clergy in the United Methodist Church. Barclay is preaching from the LGBTQI handbook—Biblical theology that was hammered out through the Ecumenical Councils and the Creeds no longer has any room or place in the process. If this is what is happening in the second-largest Protestant denomination in America, you can only imagine what as yet looms on the horizon. When the Church becomes baptized secular humanism, when the Biblical injunctions have no more meaning, then the Church is no longer the Church. In the words of Jesus, “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot” (Matthew 5:13 NIV).
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Romans 8:39 says nothing can separate us from the love of God, yet Hebrew 6 warns of falling away through apostasy. Can a Christian lose his salvation?
- How do you explain Judas? He was one of the disciples, yet he betrayed Christ.
- What are your feelings about honoring Sunday, instead of Saturday, as the Sabbath?
