How to Honor Your Parents When you Disagree About Theology

January 13, 2021

Episode 619 | Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions.

Show Notes

1. I am wondering if you have any advice on when and when not to bring up current events or pop culture into your bible teaching? I am a bible teacher and note that some preachers bring up current issues and make pop-culture references non-stop while others never mention these things. Any advice on how to do this well without watering down the biblical message?

2. I remember learning in 6th grade how humans evolved from hominids, so I am wondering how the story of Adam and Eve in the Bible may or may not fit together with findings in human evolutionary biology?

3. I am out of college living at home with my mother and grandmother and they believe that the miraculous sign of tongues is still in use for Christians today. I do not think this is the more accurate biblical view. How do I speak with them about this topic but be respectful about it? I love both my mom and grandmother and do not want to disrespect them.

4. The last few years I have chosen an attribute of God in which to meditate during the year. This year I’m meditating on God’s Providence. Please tell me what the distinction is between God’s Sovereignty and God’s Providence.
