I want to experience God for myself, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. (23:47-40:13)

I'm working on being more patient. Is there a healthy way to be impatient in the meantime? (40:17-47:50)

I feel like when I was a kid, I was given this big package labeled “Christian beliefs”. Some of them didn’t really have anything to do with Christianity, but they were in the package. I have dropped a lot of those things. But how do I know what to drop and what to keep? (19:08-35:19)

How can I be a wise person without turning into a cynical person? (35:25- 52:15)

I recently heard a message from 2 Corinthians 4:6 about being a light in darkness. While everything they said was fine, it seemed to boil down to either “be positive” or “be Christian in public”. Is there more to being a light in darkness than that? (52:20-1:06:44)

My partner started going to therapy. They really like it so far. Some of things they say their therapist told them and exercises they gave them seem…weird to me. Is this a conversation I can have with them? How? (16:02-27:37)

 

I’m getting really discouraged by how just openly mean I see a lot of Christians being. On tv, on social media, in real life- being homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic. It really bothers me people who act like that ascribe to the same beliefs that I do. How do I think about this? (27:42-44:07)

 

James 4:3 says “When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” I feel like that verse gets used to bash people for wanting stuff. But doesn’t Jesus talk about how God gives like a good father, and gives even when we don’t know what to ask for? What does this verse mean? (44:11-  )

I’ve been discussing faith matters with a friend, who's really getting deeper in the faith right now, and that's awesome.Some of their sources seem a bit wonky, What's a good way to navigate this? (17:10-34:34)

Can spiritual things be stored or felt through physical things, or songs? Like the way you feel when you enter a room where people have been praying, or for example if an instrumental song has been recorded with occult connotations. Or are connotations only what we ascribe to them? (34:37-54:56)

I’ve made a lot of positive changes, but I feel like some people- my family especially- still only sees me as the old me. That’s really frustrating and I don’t know what I can do. (55:00-1:05:28)

I have a question about Matthew 10:39. What does it mean to “lose your life”? Like, what am I supposed to be giving up? (24:46-39:07)

 

I feel like decisions at my church are all made by committee. But not like, a defined committee, just kind of waiting for group consensus. This seems really inefficient to me. Am I wrong to not like this? Can I bring it up and try to fix it? (39:11-49:11)

 

I am going to a new church. I really like it. It is very welcoming and accepting, which is different than the church I grew up in. I am nervous to talk to my family about it. They aren’t like super-conservative, but I’m worried they will feel like I am rejecting something about them. Does that make sense? How do I prepare for that conversation? (49:15-1:02:45)

My partner and I are moving and will be looking for a new church. I have only ever gone to one denomination in my life. I want to use this as an opportunity to explore what’s out there. What’s the best way to go about it? (22:14-39:24)

 

I hear people talk about how they “discovered their gifts”. I don’t know what that means really. How do you discover something you’re good at? What makes something a “gift”? (39:27-53:38)

 

I know being humble is good. But there are times (like at work) when I need to advocate for myself and talk up my competence and accomplishments. Is there a time and place for not-humility? (53:42-1:07:25)

I know nobody perfectly lives out what they say, but what is the line between imperfect person and hypocrite? (17:11-31:55)

When someone (ie. Family) has hurt me, I put a lot of thought into trying to figure out why they acted the way they did. But I often find the answers don’t satisfy me, because they still did the hurtful thing. Is it useful to try to figure out the “whys”, or better to just focus on the “whats”? (32:01-44:26)

In Romans 9:1, it says “my conscience confirms it through the Holy Spirit”. How does our conscience relate to the Holy Spirit? (44:32-56:32)

I’ve heard you guys say “no is a powerful word”. But I was taught to try to be helpful to people and be open to opportunities. How does “no” fit into that? (22:03-39:19)

With the SBC abuse scandal joining the Hillsong one and all the others, is there anything to learn from this? What can an individual do to help stop this from happening in the future? (39:24-55:32)

God doesn’t have needs because He is perfect, right? So why does He care if we worship Him? (55:37-1:06:26)
