The parable of the sower makes me wonder if I’m really saved. Might Jesus say to me, “Depart from Me”? What’s going on with Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8? My pastor disagrees with my teaching on Galatians 5. What should I say to him?
I’m concerned that I might be a Christian, but not have the Holy Spirit. Why didn’t those in Acts 8 have the Spirit if they’d been baptized? Have I missed something? My pastor says divorce and remarriage make me an adulterer and this keeps me from Heaven. Is this true?
Will there be any regret in Heaven? Will we see and recognize our loved ones? Why does the Lord’s Prayer contain “lead us not into temptation”?Was Simon the Sorcerer a true believer? Can you be a Christian and not have the Holy Spirit yet?
What are your thoughts on Acts 8, and Simon the Sorcerer? How do we come out of a cycle of repeated sin? What is your interpretation of 1 Corinthians 5:12-13?
