Do Christians have to “die to self” daily? Why does Paul say “I consider it all loss” in Philippians 3? Did Jesus know what would happen and allow Judas to betray Him? Can you be in Christ but still think “in Adam” at times? My relatives are Eastern Orthodox, and they argue their faith is most accurate, because it’s the oldest. How should I respond? Should we follow the “early church fathers”? I am wanting to trust God more, but I’m wondering: How do I do it exactly?
