#150 – The One Q&A To Rule Them All

Jen Wilkin, JT English, and Kyle Worley celebrate episode 150 of Knowing Faith by answering questions submitted by listeners! 

Questions Covered in This Episode:

  • How do we reconcile judgment day with the knowledge that when we repent God forgets or casts away our sins?
  • Will we see King Saul in heaven?
  • Are false stories the same thing as worldviews?
  • How can brothers in Christ best supportz sisters in Christ who are pursuing some form of ministry in the US context?
  • Is the soul inherently gendered as male and female? If yes or no, what are the implications for complementarianism?
  • Do you consider women’s bible study and women’s ministry the same thing?
  • Can you help me understand the difference between the ontological and economic Trinity? Why does it matter?
  • What are your thoughts on Paul saying to not pay attention to genealogies in 1 Timothy?
  • Why is the Father referred to as God the Father but Christ is referred to as the Son of God, not God the Son? Does this language confuse the equality of the Trinity in any way?
  • Who is your favorite of the minor prophets and why?
  • How do we pray Trinitarianly?
  • Does Kenosis deny the deity of Christ?
  • I want to develop my own curriculum for our study to use, where should I start?
  • Romans 7:4 says we have died to the law in Christ Jesus but in Matthew 5:17 Jesus says he didn’t come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. So if we are in Christ it means that we have died to the law, but also we have fulfilled the law in Christ. How can both be true at the same time? Did we die to the law or did we fulfill the law in Christ?
  • I reckon after these tough questions you and your families need a holiday to NZ! What say you all?

Helpful Definitions:

  • Trichotomy: We are made up of three parts, body, soul, and spirit.
  • Ontological (Imminent) Trinity: The view that centers on the Trinity in and of Himself, or the internal relations between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as present (immanent) only to Himself (c.f. Jn 1:1-2,18); this perspective is distinguished from that of the economic Trinity. 
  • Economic Trinity: A view of the Trinity focused on God in the history of redemption, or the functional acts (economies) of the Godhead in the creation and salvation of the world; this perspective is distinguished from that of the immanent Trinity.
  • How to pray: To the Father through the Son by the Spirit.
  • Kenosis: Jesus gives over his divine rights (Philippians 2:7).
