On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/11/19), Hank begins an in-depth teaching on prayer as a spiritual discipline in the second segment—which will extend into several days on the Bible Answer Man broadcast. As the physical disciplines of weightlifting and running promote strength and stamina, so the spiritual disciplines promote righteousness. Tom Landry, former coach of the Dallas Cowboys, said, “The job of a football coach is to make men do what they don’t want to do in order to achieve what they’ve always wanted to be.” In much the same way, said Donald Whitney, “Christians are called to make themselves do something they would not naturally do— pursue the Spiritual Disciplines— in order to become what they’ve always wanted to be, that is, like Jesus Christ.”
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Is there biblical support for making the sign of the cross and infant baptism?
- In Ecclesiastes 7:17, it mentions dying before our time. God is sovereign, so how could we die before the time he planned for us?
