Q&A: Denominational Unity, Generational Curses, and Giving

February 24, 2017

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers the following questions:

 

What are your thoughts on progressive revelation?

Can you give me a convincing argument as to why there should be denominational unity? Since salvation is a gift, how can our names be stricken from the book of life?

What do you think about the gap theory? Do you know about Kellie Copeland arguing with her ex-husband on Facebook?

Are the sins of the fathers being passed on to their children because they are misleading them? You said there are no generational curses, but the book of Galatians says that Jesus came to bear the curse for us; so what is this curse?

I’ve heard you talk about general revelation and the age of the earth; does that mean the Bible is skipping over millions of years in the creation account?

I was talking with a Roman Catholic friend who said the elements of Communion are the actual body and blood of Christ; can you help me explain this?

What is the biblical model for giving? Should I give a tenth of my gross or net income? How should I reconcile the Bible saying God will visit the sins of the fathers on the third and fourth generation with the idea of generational curses, and my own sin?

About Hank Hanegraaff

Hendrik (Hank) Hanegraaff serves as president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina-based Christian Research Institute. He is also host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man radio broadcast, which is heard daily across the United States and Canada — and around the world via the Internet at www.equip.org.

Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian authors and apologists, Hank is deeply committed to equipping Christians to be so familiar with truth that when counterfeits loom on the horizon, they recognize them instantaneously.



Through his live call-in radio broadcast, Hank equips Christians to read the Bible for all it’s worth, answers questions on the basis of careful research and sound reasoning, and interviews today’s most significant leaders, apologists, and thinkers.


Hank is the author of more than twenty books, which have cumulatively sold millions of copies. Christianity in Crisis and Resurrection each won the Gold Medallion for Excellence in Christian Literature awarded by the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association (ECPA); and Counterfeit Revival and The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution each won ECPA’s Silver Medallion — the latter published in the condensed Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don’t Want You to Know.



Other noteworthy volumes include The Prayer of Jesus, which rose to number one on the Christian Marketplace Bestseller list October 2002, and the popular Complete Bible Answer Book: Collector’s Edition, which clearly and concisely answers common questions regarding Christianity, culture, and cults, while tackling complex questions including, “How can Christians legitimize a God who orders the genocide of entire nations?” and “How could the Bible command a rape victim to marry her rapist?”



Through his ground-breaking The Apocalypse Code: What the Bible Really Teaches about the End Times and Why It Matters Today, as well as his historical fiction works The Last Disciple Series and Fuse of Armageddon, Hank exposes the dangers of both Christian and secular Zionism. And in Has God Spoken? he provides memorable proofs for the Bible’s divine inspiration.



Additional works include The Legacy Study BibleThe Covering: God’s Plan to Protect You from Evil, and the Creation Answer Book.

 

He is a regular contributor to the award-winning Christian Research Journal and an articulate communicator on the pressing issues of our day, having spoken in leading churches, conferences, and on college campuses throughout the world (most recently at the University of Tehran, Iran).

 

Hank and his wife, Kathy, live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and are parents to twelve children.
