In this podcast, Jim continues answering listener email and addresses the nature of the Gospel Message. Is the purpose of the Gospel to transform and restore the planet, or is the purpose of the Gospel to rescues fallen individuals? Are these two goals and consequences of the Gospel Message mutually exclusive? Jim also discusses the importance of rationality in the Christian life, the monetization of apologetics efforts, moral grounding and ethics training, and the distinct and unique nature of the Christian Worldview.

In this podcast, Jim begins to respond to listener email by addressing two difficult issues. How were people saved prior to the life of Jesus? If faith alone in Christ alone is required to be saved, how were Old Testament saints saved prior to the arrival of Christ? Jim also addresses the ‘hot topic’ issue of abortionist murders. Does the Old Testament require us to stop the murdering of the unborn by murdering the doctors who are performing abortions? Are abortionist murders permissible in light of the Old Testament Law? How are we to reconcile the tension between what we believe and what the law of the land permits?

What does the Bible teach about the nature of Church? Are there certain non-negotiable essentials that all of us, as Christians, must believe about the Church in order to call ourselves Christians? Are there any over-arching principles that God has given us to help us live as a community of God? In this final podcast in a series examining Christian “essentials”, Jim discusses the essential doctrinal truths related to the “Communion of Saints”.
