On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/26/20), we present an episode of the Hank Unplugged podcast. Hank’s guest is Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, author of When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers. Hank and Dr. D’Ambrosio discuss the importance of unity within the body of Christ as an answer to the Lord’s High Priestly Prayer; St. Clement of Rome and his letter to the Corinthians dealing with division in the Church; the martyrdom of Ignatius of Antioch; and understanding the importance of holy tradition.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/25/20), Hank answers the following questions:Are there any Scriptures that refute the doctrine of entire sanctification? Why are there denominations that teach this?Are the three components of our mind, body, and spirit a good analogy for the Trinity?I have recently come to Christ, but my wife is an unbeliever and doesn’t want to tithe; what should I do in this situation?Why did God bless Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when they were all liars?Could you tell me about Edgar Cayce; was he a religious man?What are your thoughts on the teachings of the late Norman Vincent Peale?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/22/20), Hank answers the following questions:With respect to the Passover, I have always heard about the angel of death that struck down the firstborn, but where does the Bible speak of the death angel?I have been reading Josephus and he mentions some strange events; is he a reliable historian, and how would you interpret these things in light of Matthew chapter 24?How is it that Jesus did not know the time of His return?Does Satan have access to heaven today?Are you familiar with the Reconciling Ministries Network that is associated with the United Methodist Church?Can pastors who are divorced still serve in the church?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank takes a detour from his discussion of the very important Apostolic Fathers, apologists, and Church Fathers featured in the book When the Church Was Young to discuss the importance of the church today as well as the proper assessment of science in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. As Christians, we want to be very careful not to switch our allegiance from God to science, nor do what Dr. Anthony Fauci does by re-envisioning science as his god. For Dr. Fauci, church is at best ancillary to a properly ordered society. But for us as Christians, no society can properly function without church. We must be careful not to evolve science to the status of God in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and be careful not to marginalize the significance of the church.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/21/20), Hank answers the following questions:I don’t see any evidence in Scripture that ¬supports the idea of a four-dimensional space-time continuum. What are your thoughts on this?Could you explain why in Exodus 33:11 the text says Moses spoke to God face to face, but in verse 20, the Lord tells Moses he cannot see His face?In 2 Corinthians 12:7, Paul speaks about a thorn in the flesh. Was this a demonic attack or a physical ailment?Can a Christian be possessed by a demon or only influenced from without?What does the Bible teach about free will? It seems like we can make choices but in our fallen state, we cannot come to Christ without His assistance.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/20/20), Hank asks listeners to pray for the Bay of Bengal—an area that includes such countries as India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar—which is currently being impacted by Super Cyclone Amphan. But as K. P. Yohannan, the founder of Gospel for Asia said, “God is able to tell even the winds and the waves to be still.” And so we pray that the Lord will render his mercies on some of the poorest people in the world.Hank also answers the following questions:Can you elaborate on CRI’s stance on Jack Chick?What are the ingredients in anointing oil? Are we supposed to eat it?Are there any other greater works that should be done? Should we not be performing the same miracles that Jesus and the disciples did today?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/19/20), Hank honors Ravi Zacharias, who has gone home to be with the Lord. This morning Hank received an email from Ravi’s daughter Sarah titled, “Ravi Zacharias Now With Jesus.” Sarah went on to say that on January 4th, her dad recited a stanza from his favorite hymn from the late Richard Baxter. Just two months after reciting that stanza, Ravi would learn that he had cancer, and he would experience the realization of this more than 300-year old hymn so very, very soon.Hank also answers the following questions:What would it require for the Church to be unified? Would that mean adopting Eastern Orthodox beliefs?What is your opinion about generational curses?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/18/20), Hank answers the following questions:I’m curious to know what you think about the idea of tollhouses?I came across a video with Kenneth Copeland where he said that we are heirs of Abraham’s covenant with God and thus we should be wealthy also. What are your thoughts?My husband passed away a few months ago and I have an incredible sadness that I can’t seem to shake. Is there anything you can say to help me?Do you believe that the 1,260 days mentioned in Revelation chapter 12 is the 1,260 years between the conquest of Jerusalem in 688 and when Israel returned in 1948?

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank talks about a book that he has designated as gripping and essential—When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers by Marcellino D’Ambrosio. If you really want to understand how you are to live your life in the present, get a glimpse of how the early Church functioned in its first few centuries of history. This is a period that most people are unfamiliar with; a period where there was no schism within the authentic Body of Christ. A time when we didn’t separate ourselves with labels. By understanding our common inheritance, we understand just how important the genuine Body of Christ is when it moves towards unity around the essentials of our common faith.Hank also answers the following questions:I’m concerned with the amount of Anti-Masonic material that seems to be coming from questionable sources.I’ve heard for years pastors say that we are sinners, but once we become believers isn’t our identity only found in Christ?Do you know anything about David J. Stewart?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/14/20), Hank talks about Tertullian, who is another great apologist featured in Marcellino D’Ambrosio’s compelling book, When the Church Was Young. Tertullian’s conversion is one of the great conversion stories of early Church history. While attending the public games he witnessed the martyrdom of some Christians who he recognized were far from vicious criminals. He saw that they were virtuous Christians who had the courage to die and a cause worth dying for. Moved by the witness of their blood, Tertullian began learning about principles and power that caused those facing their own mortality to do so with courage and conviction. Soon thereafter he was illumined by baptism and became a fervent follower of Christ. As Tertullian grew in his faith, he became one of the most quotable early Christian apologists.Hank also answers the following question:If I have intrusive thoughts that blaspheme the Holy Spirit have I committed a sin?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/13/20), Hank talks about Origen of Alexandria, one of the early church fathers featured in Marcellino D’Ambrosio’s gripping book, When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2005wa/Though Origen did not witness for Christ through martyrdom, he did die to Christ through a life of self-sacrifice—he wore no shoes, permitted himself no more than one set of clothing, and to his dying day slept on the floor rather than in the comfort of a bed. The most important thing about Origen is that he was first and foremost a man of the Bible. He held that Scripture is God-breathed—inspired by the Holy Spirit. That the Spirit of God dwelt in the biblical text as a temple. Thus, Christ comes to meet us in Scripture not merely to inform us, but to transform us. Unfortunately, a cloud has been cast over Origen’s reputation and the entire body of his invaluable contributions to Christian apologetics. As a result of this, he was never canonized.Hank also answers the following questions:Are we adopted or biological children of God?Who is Jesus?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/12/20), Hank details another of the early church fathers, Clement of Alexandria, someone who Hank describes as the very personification of a Christian philosopher not content to curse the darkness, but rather committed to building a lighthouse in the midst of the gathering storm. Clement set an example for us as a scholar of scripture. He cites passages from the Old and New Testaments thousands of times, the Greek classics hundreds of times. As one famous patristic scholar put it, “We owe it above all to Clement that scholarly thinking and research are recognized as axiomatic to the life of the Church.” In other words, he was proving that faith and philosophy, gospel and secular learning, are not enemies but belong together. In the end, fierce persecution succeeded in driving Clement into exile, but not before he had been granted the grace to make enormous contributions to the cause of Christ.Hank also answers the following question:Why are you promoting Clement when he was responsible for promoting tradition almost on par with the Scriptures?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/11/20), Hank goes over one of the great apologists of the Early Church—Irenaeus of Lyons—who is featured in the book When the Church Was Young by Marcellino D’Ambrosio. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2005wa/Irenaeus was greatly influenced by Polycarp, who himself was the disciple of John the Theologian. He was a prodigious author; among his credits is a great book known as Against Heresies, a book in which he clinically unmasks the dark underbelly of Gnostic heresy. The story that is told of how Irenaeus countered heretics is gripping, powerful, and just one of the many stories you’ll read about in When the Church Was Young.Hank also answers the following question:Is it possible that the 144,000 are all the tribes of Israel, and that the great multitude are the God-fearing gentiles?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/08/20), Hank explains that our ministry is an apologetics ministry, meaning that we are ready to give a defense of the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints and to do so with gentleness and respect. But apologetics is nothing new; it was part of the legacy of the Early Church. Hank highlights the life and works of Justin Martyr, an early Christian apologist who was martyred for his faith.Hank also answers the following question:How could God allow this kind of pandemic?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank brings up the most important question that you can ever ask yourself: “What must I do to be saved?” It is precisely the question asked by the Philippian jailer in Acts chapter 16. Paul and Silas responded by saying, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” After hearing the word of the Lord, the jailer believed and was baptized. Salvation is not static but active. Not punctiliar but a process. Not merely a decision but a decided way of living—a way of living by which we are transformed from glory to glory. Salvation is a lifetime journey replete with ebbs and flows. Yet we can rightly praise God for the confidence that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.” Hank also deals with an issue that is coming up more and more frequently as people are involved in a game called “Pin the Tail on the Antichrist” where people—particularly in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic—are looking to see if they can determine who the antichrist is.Hank also answers the following question:Why are all good deeds done by non-believers meaningless to God?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/07/20), Hank talks about a book that he has designated as gripping and essential—When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers by Marcellino D’Ambrosio. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2005wa/If you really want to understand how you are to live your life in the present, get a glimpse of how the early Church functioned in its first few centuries of history.

The Didache, and Q&A

The Didache, and Q&A

2020-05-0729:15

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/06/20), Hank details the Didache, something that Marcellino D’Ambrosio devotes a chapter to in his book When the Church Was Young. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2005wa/The Didache is a document that has long been in use prior to the first half of the second century. As a catechism, the Didache provides instructions on everything from adultery to abortion. It contains the earliest indication in Christian literature that the murder forbidden by the fifth commandment includes the murder of abortion. In addition, as an instructional manual for worship, the Didache provides directions for sacred traditions of the Church ranging from baptism to prayer.Hank also answers the following question:Is it God’s plan for women to be able to be pastors?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/05/20), Hank highlights what we can learn from the embryonic Church, which is laid out in riveting fashion in Marcellino D’Ambrosio’s book When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2005wa/In this book, you will read about great men like Clement of Rome—the first of the original Apostolic Fathers, Ignatius of Antioch, and Polycarp of Smyrna, all of whom Hank discusses in detail on this broadcast. This book will put you in touch with some of the greats of Church history, and it will also give you a sense of how church ought to be done.Hank also answers the following questions:What do you think about Justin Peters Ministries?Why do you say in your book Truth Matters, Life Matters More that Jesus had no brothers?https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-truth-matters-life-matters-more/
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (05/04/20), Hank discusses the new resource that we are featuring this month, When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers by Marcellino D’Ambrosio. Unlike many history books that are “dry as dust,” When the Church Was Young pulsates with passion. And for any Christian not steeped in the rich history of our Church Fathers, it will open up fresh vistas guaranteed to deepen appreciation of our faith. While you no doubt know many of their names, what you may not know is just how profoundly each contributed to the faith we embrace today.Hank also answers the following questions:I’m concerned with the amount of Anti-Masonic lodge material that seems to be coming from questionable sources.I’ve heard for years pastors say that we are sinners, but once we become believers isn’t our identity only found in Christ?Do you know anything about David J. Stewart?

Just a fan

Who cares? One of the best arguments against religion is seeing how many people are worried about dogma and doctrines from a time when people believed that the universe revolved around earth. They didn't know about germs, scientific knowledge or even what causes lightening. And yet millions of people take advice and seek wisdom from iron and bronze age cultures. Unbelievable!
