On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/11/20), Hank reminds listeners about the basis behind fasting, as we are now about ten days into the Lenten fast. The primary purpose of fasting is to experience God as the source and the substance of the life that is truly life; it is to recognize union with Christ as the apex of our human existence. Wherever fasting takes you this Lenten season, it’s so crucial to remain mindful of why you’re fasting in the first place. As mentioned in Hank’s latest book Truth Matters, Life Matters More, four things spring to his mind when thinking about why we fast. Those four things are forgiveness, almsgiving, supplication, and transformation—making up the acronym F.A.S.T.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Is there evidence that supports the claim that the universe maker is the God of the Bible?
- Were Adam and Eve an allegory or actual people in history?
- What are your thoughts on predestination and election?
