Today on The Dominic Enyart Show we’re taking a deep dive into two topics briefly mentioned last week. 1- The age of accountability. Should we read the Bible like lawyers and try to understand salvation as if it’s a contract? Or should we read the Bible as if God is personal, relational, and reasonable? 2- Why is God allowed to kill people after saying explicitly, “you shall not murder”?
Question for you! What length of show do you guys prefer? Typically we do about half an hour (though sometimes we go a little long). Would you, the brightest audience in the country, want shorter or longer shows? Let Dominic know by sending him an email, at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Today's resource: God's Criminal Justice System:
Does the Bible support the death penalty before the crucifixion? How about after the crucifixion? The death penalty forms the centerpiece of the Gospel. The first and last books of the Bible deal with execution, as do the Old and New Testaments generally. Enjoy this presentation of God's ideas about criminal justice. Many Christians pray for an open door to share the Gospel with a friend. That door opens with almost every newscast and social media headline, for those who benefit from God's Criminal Justice System.
