New Age Q&A Night

• Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy

What’s the deal with that Eckhart Tolle book, The New Earth? Is everything from the New Age movement bad? Can Christians practice yoga? Greg and Paul tackled these questions and more in June of 2008 at our New Age Q&A.

    W.E. Nunnally, Ph.D., professor of Early Judaism and Christian Origins, Evangel University, has argued that the practice of binding demons is not bilical and that the practice is taken out of context. His article is available on the Internet: http://enrichmentjournal.ag.org/200901/200901_112_Theo_Enrichment.cfm

    Nunnally viewpoint is apparently different from yours. Would you interact with Nunnally’ article?

    I believe strongly that, though God always initiates the process and we can not, every human has freewill to accept or reject God’s offer of salvation. Assuming you (Greg and/or Paul) hold this same view, how can we explain Acts 13:48 when confronted by a reformed Christian who keeps bringing it up? Please help me here as it is the only “Calvinist proof verse” for unconditional election I still struggle with.

    Can you lay out some of the pros and cons of process theology in 2-3 minutes? 😉 It would be great if you could, but I understand if you don’t do so.

    Should we wear sunglasses due to glare from the lights reflecting off Paul Eddy’s outfit and legs?

    I have been soaking up your sermon series on love (all of them!) and have been looking at the Scriptures through the lens of love. I halted a bit when I read the parable about the wedding feast in Matthew 22:1-14 culminating in the reference to “weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.” Could you direct me to a sermon that deals with those verses? Thank you so much!

    will these be available for download/streaming?

    Thanks to everyone who has submitted questions to Greg & Paul. The Q&A went great and lots of questions made it to the front.

    Unfortunately, we only ever get to about 15-20% of the total questions asked, so we make every effort to get to the ones that seem to be asked multiple times, those that haven’t been covered in previous sermons, or interesting ones about dragons, vampires or zombies, of course.

    We also made sure not to send duplicates to the moderator, even if it was asked in a different service. This way, we could post all three services and there would never be a duplicate question.
    Due to the addition of two more sermon files, it may take us a little more time to post the three edited files to the site. So please be patient with us as we get those files to the site and for podcast.

    Greg, how are your most recent musings concerning God’s apparently violent activity in the OT impacting your view about hell? I know you are an annihilantionist, but wouldn’t you say that annihilationism is quite violent, even if it is not quite as violent as eternal conscious torment? Thank you.

  9. Ryan says:

    Christ seems to imply that we have to make ourselves worthy to be his disciple (by loving him the most and carrying our cross… Matthew 10:37-38).

    I’ve always understood that no one is worthy (Luke 17:10); but Christ makes us worthy through faith in HIS work.

    What’s the deal?

  10. Roland says:

    What do you think happens to those who’ve never heard of Christianity? Or who died before it?
    Thank you

  11. Rob says:

    I loved the messages about the shadow of the cross. But I just read Revelation and there seems to be a lot of violence attributed to God and judgement in there. Since that is not the old testament, how does that fit in to God’s unviolent nature?

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
