On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank talks about fasting, a topic that is covered in the new book by Jay W. Richards, Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting. Hank recounts an illustration from the wise Cappadocian Father who used the merchant ship as an apt illustration for fasting, where a loaded ship is sunk by minor waves but the ship with a captain smart enough to toss overboard the extra weight will ride above even surging waves, and so it is with overindulged bodies.Hank also answers the following questions:I found a teacher by the name of Dr. Gene Kim on YouTube, what is your opinion on him?I was told that the generation that sees Israel become a nation will not pass. Have you heard of that? What is a biblical generation?I get confused about how Jesus died both physically and spiritually upon the cross to atone for sin. Were Jesus and God separated?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/16/20), we present an episode of the Hank Unplugged podcast. Hank’s guest is Jay W. Richards, author of Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting. Hank and Richards discuss the impact that reading Eat, Fast, Feast had on Hank’s cancer treatment and going into remission; why Richards believes that it is no coincidence that a decrease in fasting has led to an increase in diseases of civilization such as heart disease, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and cancer; why our bodies are designed for fasting; and why Christians stopped fasting.For further information on Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting, please click here. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2001hup/
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (01/15/20), Hank discusses the issue raised by skeptics that Christians are irrational because we believe in a God we cannot see. In reality, says Hank, it’s irrational for someone to suppose that what cannot be seen doesn’t exist. After all, Christians and skeptics alike recognize such things as electrons, or the laws of logic, or the force of gravity—all of which are unseen. The order and complexity of the universe testify to the existence of an uncaused first cause. The more you contemplate the grandeur of the universe in which we reside, the more we are brought in touch with the glory and the grandeur of the invisible God who made himself known in time and space through the visible Jesus Christ.Hank also answers the following questions:Are we meant to keep the Sabbath, or is it no longer under the law?Looking back, my life didn’t change much after becoming a Christian. I’m wondering if I really had a salvific transformation in my life. Can you help me?In regards to a previous call, can you comment on a believer being sealed by the Holy Spirit?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (01/14/20), Hank brings up an example of “fake news” in the science field. A recent article from Time Magazine titled “NASA May Have Found the Goldilocks Planet of Goldilocks Planets: TOI 700 d” by Jeffrey Kluger reports on a claim made by NASA that they have discovered an Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of a hospitable star. But as Hank points out, the article itself seems to contradict the title. In the article, we read that the planet orbits a red dwarf star, and is tidally locked—meaning that the same face of the planet remains facing the sun at all times. Both of these issues would prevent such a planet from being habitable for life. Hank goes over these issues and more and explains why we truly live on a privileged planet.Hank also answers the following questions:I feel ripped between Protestantism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism and I’m not sure which one to stick with. Can you advise me?I am having trouble trusting God; I read about His love, but I don’t feel it personally. Do you have any wisdom on the nature of God as it relates to me?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (01/13/20), Hank opens by responding to a number of questions that were brought up by a Facebook commenter. They wanted to know why we needed to be afraid of a God that they likened to an absentee landlord, who watches on as children are raped by the officials of His own Church. They also bring up the issues of free will and God’s omniscience, wondering how Christians can claim that God is omniscient when there are several examples in the Old Testament of God becoming angry when humanity failed one of His tests. In the second segment of the broadcast Hank addresses the question of how life can matter more than truth, a question that has come up a number of times since the release of his latest book, Truth Matters, Life Matters More.Hank also answers the following question:In Genesis 1:26, why are plural pronouns used when God says, “Let us make mankind in our image.” Who is He referring to?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (01/10/20), Hank answers the following questions:I’ve sinned and fallen hard and feel like the Holy Spirit left me. Can the Holy Spirit leave us due to apostasy?Do you have an in-depth analysis of Jonathan Cahn’s book The Oracle? What are your thoughts on him?What is your insight on if women can be pastors?When Jesus told the thief on the cross that he would be with him in paradise, was he speaking of a place like purgatory?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank gives an overview of the brand new double issue of the Christian Research Journal. As Hank explains, one of the side-effects to the allogeneic stem-cell transplant he received in June is that the Christian Research Institute fell behind in various ministry outreaches, including the production of the Journal, and the cure is this wonderfully super-sized edition. One of the standout articles in this edition is the cover story, “How Dante’s Inferno Can Help Explain Hell to Modern Seekers” by Louis Markos. Hank also encourages listeners to start off 2020 on solid footing by reading the Bible. All too many suppose that the overcoming life can be achieved apart from the embrace of life practices like reading the Bible—but it can’t. Reading through the Bible may be a daunting proposition, but it’s a necessary one. And because it’s necessary, Hank developed the Legacy Reading Plan, free of charge at equip.org. The plan is unique in that it requires you to process books of the Bible rather than piecing together bits of books. Nothing should take precedence over getting into the Word and getting the Word into us, because if we do not regularly feed on the Word of God, we’re going to suffer spiritual consequences.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/09/20), Hank answers the following questions:Given that we have free will, is it appropriate to pray for the salvation of unbelievers?Is baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues for all believers?The number 40 appears many times throughout the Bible; what is the significance of that number?I was told that the generation that sees Israel become a nation will not pass. Have you heard of that? What is a biblical generation?I get confused about how Jesus died both physically and spiritually upon the cross to atone for sin. Were Jesus and God separated?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/08/20), Hank talks about fasting, a topic that is covered in the new book by Jay W. Richards, Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2001hup/ Hank recounts an illustration from the wise Cappadocian Father who used the merchant ship as an apt illustration for fasting, where a loaded ship is sunk by minor waves but the ship with a captain smart enough to toss overboard the extra weight will ride above even surging waves, and so it is with overindulged bodies.Hank also answers the following questions:I found a teacher by the name of Dr. Gene Kim on YouTube, what is your opinion on him?Are we going to face judgment and answer for all that we have done, or are we forgiven?If you’ve been divorced, does that eliminate you from being able to pastor a church?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/07/20), Hank talks more on the Feast of the Theophany that was observed yesterday. The Feast reveals the Trinity to the world through the baptism of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Therefore, the day following the Feast—which would be today—the Church celebrates the one who participated directly in the baptism of Jesus Christ—John the Baptist. Today we remember afresh that not long after baptizing the sinless Lamb of God, St. John faced a martyr’s death at the hands of King Herod, testimony that he was willing to speak truth to power, even to the point of shedding his own blood. That is something that Hank argues is needed in the world today, men and women who are willing to stand for truth and life—no matter the cost. Hank then addresses remarks made by actress Michelle Williams at the Golden Globe Awards, who used her acceptance speech to glorify abortion to raucous applause.Hank also answers the following questions:If the Nephilim were destroyed in the flood, why do they show up later in other books of the Bible?I gave my life to Christ thirty years ago, but I continue to sin. How do I stand?Does God still use human cunning to frustrate those with bad intentions or was that an Old Testament thing?
The Central Mystery of the Church, The Human Cost of Marijuana, and Q&AOn today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast from (01/06/20), Hank discusses an article he wrote for the current issue of the Christian Research Journal titled, “What Is the Central Mystery of the Church?” Hank also points out that today is the Feast of the Theophany of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Feast which reveals the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord. In the second segment of the broadcast, Hank discusses an article in USA Today titled “The Human Cost of Marijuana Is so High, We Need More Media Attention to Its Illnesses” by Jayne O'Donnell.Hank also answers the following question:What does it mean to say that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/03/20), Hank opens by doing some “clean-up” from yesterday’s broadcast; he was asked by a caller about a group her daughter encountered that believed—among other things—that it would not be Jesus who would come a second time, but Adam. Not sure of which group she was referring to, Hank said that he would research and return, something that we should all practice when dealing with questions to which we do not know the answer. And so after doing some research, Hank discovered the cult that seems to be what she encountered and relays the information on this group. Hank also encourages listeners to start off 2020 on solid footing by reading the Bible. All too many suppose that the overcoming life can be achieved apart from the embrace of life practices like reading the Bible—but it can’t. Reading through the Bible may be a daunting proposition, but it’s a necessary one. And because it’s necessary, Hank developed the Legacy Reading Plan, free of charge at equip.org.

Nothing should take precedence over getting into the Word and getting the Word into us, because if we do not regularly feed on the Word of God, we’re going to suffer spiritual consequences.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank shares his thoughts on the application of Scripture in the life of the believer. Christians should not only know the truth but apply the truth to every aspect of their lives. We are not only to be hearers of the Word but doers of the Word. Wisdom is the application of knowledge, therefore, don’t just hear what Scripture is saying, but put it into practice.Hank also answers the following questions:Were the early Christians socialists according to the book of Acts? Did the church in Jerusalem run out of funds?I was told that David was a prophet, is this true?Why do we celebrate Christmas on December 25th, a pagan holiday?Which translation of the Bible is the right one to use?Which member of the Trinity should I address in prayer?

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/02/20), Hank praises the newest book from Jay W. Richards, Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting.

Eat, Fast, Feast reveals that God is interested in more than just our physical health. He’s interested in healing the whole of us. Hank has put the plan into action and it has been transformational in his life, and so he hopes it will be transformational in your life as well, which is why Hank picked this book as our resource of the month for January 2020. Hank also answers the following questions: Can believers purchase lottery tickets? Is there anything wrong with doing so?My daughter encountered a church that doesn’t believe that it is Jesus that will come back, but Adam. Do you know anything about this church?It seems to me that the creation account in Genesis chapter 1 is speaking only of the creation of our galaxy, would you not agree?Did the new covenant start with Jesus’ death on the cross?

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!
