Summer Q&A Sermon, Part 2

• Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy

During our weekend services on July 7-8 we hosted Q&A sessions with Greg Boyd, our Senior Pastor, and Paul Eddy, our Teaching Pastor. If you’d like to listen to all the questions, note that there are separate downloads for the three different services.

  1. Do sincere Muslims worship the same God we Christians do?
  2. I have been meeting with JW’s often, who don’t believe in the trinity. My question: is Jesus God or is he a being other than of God, and why?
  3. Is the baptism of the Holy Spirit real and distinct from salvation?
  4. Woodland Hills will be serving food and housing people in the near future – so how does this church refrain from, or not become the “power over” to those seeking our help
  5. Someone said that there were people before Adam & Eve, is that true?
  6. Does the prosperity gospel have any merit?
  7. I feel like I am drowning. I pray to God and I feel no response what should I do?
  8. I never hear any teaching from Revelation or end times here at Woodland Hills – why is that?
  9. Why don’t we celebrate communion at Woodland Hills?
  10. Please explain the meaning of honoring thy father and mother. My family has given up on me… meaning no support, love, etc. because of my sons autism and the pain is too much
  11. I love what I’ve been hearing lately about God being so loving, but I’m still unclear what to do, when the Bible talks so much about God’s wrath and fearing God. Are you saying there is no wrath in God? Should I not fear Him?
  12. Why are there some books Missing from the bible and what significance if any do they have to JC and his message?
  13. Why is Satan given the authority to accuse us or demand our punishment for sin.
  14. Why is art important in the church? And specifically WHC?

    There are a lot of Christians that would say if you start with the commonalities between Islam and Christianity, you do end up with a God that has a profound amount of similarities (though not identical by any means). Miroslav Volf has a wonderful book called Allah that approaches this topic from a sympathetic Christian standpoint.
    I like Greg’s response and acknowledgement that Muslims can inherit salvation without a cognitive understanding of Jesus’ salvific message, but i think there are a lot more positive statements that can be made to branch the divide that some people have created between these two faiths.
