On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/28/20), Hank brings up an event that was hosted by a group of Christian leaders—Jonathan Cahn among them—on the National Mall in Washington D.C. this weekend; the event was simply dubbed, “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.” The event had much to commend it; images of people prostrated before God in prayer confessing their sins and the sins of our nation and frequent calls to repent are no doubt needed in our era of unfettered hedonism. What is also needed is discernment—particularly discernment on the part of Christian leaders! A significant number of them now hail Cahn’s Bible Codes as important evidence for the inspiration of Scripture. They claim that such events as 9/11 are encoded in the biblical text. In truth, what should be self-evident is that Cahn’s arguments are little more than a fringe variety of Jewish mysticism repackaged for Christian consumption.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Are there two gospels in the Scripture? What are the differences between the gospel of the kingdom and the gospel of grace?
- It seems to me that most mainstream Christians believe that it would be an absolute disaster if the Republican party doesn’t win this election. What would you say?
- If the Bible is true, shouldn’t we be more interested in overthrowing God rather than worshiping Him since He is incapable of handing out proportional justice?
