Summer Q&A Sermon Part 3

• 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. I have heard that Woodland Hills is an Open Theist church. Is that true and what does that mean?
  2. I am passionate about political issues. I love Woodland Hills, but wonder if you (Greg) feel like I belong here? Am I a Christian?
  3. If God created everything, who created God?
  4. Can Anabaptists be cops/ soldiers?
  5. Why did God love only the Jews and not the Gentiles? I was told that he didn’t start loving the Gentiles until Jesus came.
  6. Eph. 1:4 – 5 says that Christians were predestined in Christ from the foundation of the world. Doesn’t that pretty much cancel out your view that people get to choose whether they’ll be saved or not? If Jesus wants everyone to be saved, why does Jesus refer to Judas as one who was “predestined to hell?”
  7. I believe in evolution and the Big Bang theory- can I still be a Christian?
  8. Why does the Bible not talk a lot about Jesus’ childhood? or his young adulthood?
  9. If you’re stuck in a sin that you know is wrong, if you die will you go to hell?
  10. If someone is of a different religion, but they’re a good person, will they go to hell after they die? Is it plausible that one can be saved AFTER they die, if so, how?
  11. I was baptized at a different church a long time ago do I need to be baptized again? How do I know that I am born again?

    I would LOVE for these to get divided up and put on youtube question by question. It would make them easy to share with people inquiring about specific topics. I know that is more work and maybe not do-able… but it’s just a suggestion 🙂 I love watching these. Some day I would like to be knowledgeable enough and comfortable enough to do what Greg and Paul do here 🙂

    The Openness of God was a book that we read in theology class in seminary. (Clark Pinnick and 4 four others) and it divided the room. When I read it, it confirmed what I had already been feeling/experiencing and I loved it. That is how I see it. I really believed that after a divorce I said God where are you sending me as I was ready for an adventure. I know that I heard him say where would you like to go and let us do that. This in the essence of psalm 37:4. Just some thoughts

    One of the questions had to do with the openness view, which I have embraced for many years. It was interesting to note that Paul Eddy holds a different view, but that was not delineated in the Q and A. My husband and I would like to know what his view is.
