Special Teaching Edition: What does it mean to be “complete” in Christ? Is there really a “second blessing” or “second baptism”? How can the Christian life be a life without rules? What is the best way to fight temptation?
Should we be focused on “kingdom living”? In Matthew 25, why does Jesus say “whatever you did for the least of these, you did for Me”? Does this somehow contradict the message of grace? My friend was trying to speak in tongues and ultimately couldn’t stop speaking in tongues. What does this mean?
What is baptism in the Holy Spirit? My friend seems to be focused on a “second blessing” type experience. How do I help him understand completeness in Christ? Why do so many of the laws in the Old Testament carry such strict punishments?
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?
Is John 15 addressing believers or unbelievers? What does it mean to abide? Is it right to picture Christ walking beside me and telling me it’s going to be okay? What is speaking in tongues? Is it a second blessing or evidence of true salvation? What is praying in the Spirit?
