    Message 5, Special Questions & Answers:

    Representing nearly one hundred years of combined ministry experience, Drs. John MacArthur and R.C. Sproul continue to faithfully serve the cause of Christ. This session will allow attendees to join in on a conversation between two longtime friends and co-laborers in the gospel ministry.


    Questions:


    1. Dr. MacArthur, what are some of your early impressions of meeting Dr. Sproul? (00:19)

    2. What do you see as the largest problem in the American church? (03:47)

    3. Why are there so few Reformed and evangelical churches? (07:54)

    4. What is the missing ingredient of preaching today? (11:55)

    5. Dr. Sproul, why have you identified Christology as the pressing need for the church today? (14:16)

    6. Is faith a gift or response? (22:46)

    7. Our pastor sometimes asks the Holy Spirit to “fall on us.” Is this biblical? (26:10)

    8. Should I fear the Lord? (28:56)

    9. How do you evangelize someone who thinks they are saved yet don’t demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit—especially if they are family members? (32:16)

    10. If you were to wind the clock back, what would you say to your younger self? (37:16)


    Next session link:
    http://www.ligonier.org/learn/confer...ns-and-answers

    Message 7, Questions and Answers:

    A Questions and Answers session with Drs. Nathan Busenitz, Steven Lawson, John MacArthur, Stephen Nichols, and R.C. Sproul.

    Questions:

    1. What are some tips for showing mercy and grace when introducing the doctrines of grace into a church? (00:08)

    2. Dr. Busenitz, can you comment on the pastoral preparation needed? (07:39)

    3. Since God foreordains everything, did He ordain Satan and the fall? (09:03)

    6. How can we explain the law and preach the gospel today? (21:10)

    7. Dr. Sproul, can you explain the law and the gospel in the design of Saint Andrew’s architecture? (25:11)

    8. Is there a minimum level of evidence to know you are saved? (28:05)

    9. Can you identify a figure from church history that has impacted your ministry and theological formation? (33:45)

    10. Since God is love and love does not seek its own, how do we reconcile that with God doing everything for His own pleasure? (41:06)

    11. How should the church be preparing pastors to minister to the next generation? (45:02)

    12. How should we take passages that seemingly show that God has changing emotions? (48:12)

    13. What is the one statement you would leave on your tombstone? (52:03)

    Hmmm, there are seven churches mentioned in Revelations. Seems to me that Paul wrote letters to churches in Corinth, Rome, Galatia and Thessalonia among others. You keep syaing Christs one historic church, I think Igino Montoya said it best

    Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    First, there is no document called RevelationS in the New Testament. Second, the "churches" you mentioned are local churches (parishes), not "THE church" to which the OP refers. Try again.

    My statements therefore stand exactly as posted.

    Truly stunning reasoning. Truly. Pointing out a spelling error as your primary rebuttal is always so effective. Assuming that your own sect of Christianity would not see the American church add one of its local churches rather defeats your own argument. How your for gets better soon. That was a big shot it took.

    Back to Post #6.
    As you have twice failed to actually address my point about your sect of Christianity being made up of a number of local churches, I am forced to conclude that have you cannot acknowledge your error and move on. Is the Catholic Church made up of local diocese spread around the world or not?

    The lowercase "church" is instructive here, as in speaking to the church militant, the visible vestiges of the Bride of Our Lord, The Church, that is, the invisible community of the saints.

    But thanks for driving by and tossing a few hand grenades out the window in the process.

    So question no.2.
    What do you see as being the largest problem facing the American church.

    Question no.3. prolly takes no account of Pentecostal/charismatic fellowships

    Of course. You need to take care not to equivocate between the terms "Church" and "church."

    Addressed here.

    Your preference for the opinions of your chosen recently-invented, man-made non-Catholic sect is noted.
