Bible Answer Man with Hank Hanegraaff

Living in an Age of Gender Fluidity and Q&A

September 27, 2016

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank draws attention to an article in the Wall Street Journal about a 45-year-old man named Scott who underwent hormone treatment and then transgender surgery at the Cleveland Clinic to become a woman named Stacey. Moreover, in New York City it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity. If a person feels they have been discriminated against, there’s an emergency number they can call. With now over fifty supposed gender identities, there is no doubt we are living in a brave new world where gender is no longer determined by biology, but rather how one feels.

Hank answers the following questions:

  • Did the Holy Spirit indwell and infill Old Testament believers?
  • Can you address the different views of hell? Is there any validity to the annihilationist view?
  • If someone commits suicide will they go to hell? Does it matter whether you are a believer or an unbeliever?
  • A friend brought up the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the Gospel of Philip; how would you address this?
  • What do you think about Beth Moore?
  • When discussing homosexuality, what would you say about those who are born with deformities?
  • I am struggling with repetitive sins and I’m not feeling strong conviction about it. How can I turn from these sins? Will I lose my salvation?
  • Are you familiar with the works of Craig Keener? What are your thoughts on miracles?

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

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 Bible, The 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.
