The Leadership Team answers your questions.
Q1 (1:31): I struggle to share my faith. I know I should and really do want to, but what are some first steps in making this hope a reality? Also, if a person never shares their faith, how would you get them to share their faith?
Q2 (10:57): Scripture teaches of the Trinity that God is three persons. It also says God is one essence. Further, Scripture teaches that God is unchanging. Finally, Christ took upon himself all our sin becoming sin for us and dying. What then happened to the unchanging Trinity of the cross? Was there a separation of the Son from the Father and the Spirit? Or was his separation on the cross only a separation between Christ’s human nature and his divine nature? Is it not necessary that both God and man suffered his punishment?
Q3 (19:26): I have a hard time sharing difficult things with people, dealing with people who have a bad attitude, or gossip without feeling very inadequate since I also have similar attitudes at times myself. How together do I need to be in order to address attitudes in the lives of my friends? Also, how do I confront people in order to really not make a mess of things? I don’t want to jeopardize our relationship.
Q4 (30:57): I struggle to know the difference between forgiving someone for sinning against me and allowing them back into my world. Do I have to just forgive and forget? If this is true I don’t know how. Thoughts? (see notes)
