Memorial Day 2024

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/27/24), Hank welcomes you to a special Memorial Day edition of the broadcast. In the midst of battling the evil of Nazism, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Churchill's words ring true today as we celebrate Memorial Day in the United States. A day to honor those who, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “gave the last full measure of devotion” in their sacrifice for freedom. We here at the Christian Research Institute offer our deepest respect, honor, and thankfulness to those who have sacrificed all to protect and defend the freedoms we enjoy in this country. But we are also committed to preserving freedoms that are definitively being compromised in the present generation. As history demonstrates, we must ever remain vigilant. Which leads to a quintessential question, “Under what conditions is war justified?”

Pascha: The Culmination of Holy Week

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/07/24), Hank concludes his overview of the days of Holy Week, arriving at Pascha, also known as Easter. It is the day in which the body of Christ worldwide celebrates the ultimate game-changer, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. “If I face hardships in life for merely human reasons,” wrote Paul in his first letter to the Corinthian Christians, “what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.’ If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.” Without resurrection, Christianity crumbles. Thus, in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, the apostle Paul provides a four-part argument underscoring the irrevocable reality of Christ’s resurrection. Of one thing Hank has become certain; if twenty-first-century Christians would grasp the reality of resurrection like first-century Christians did, their lives would be totally transformed.

Looking Back at Holy Saturday, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/06/24), Hank resumes his overview of the days of Holy Week, arriving at Holy Saturday, which was observed by the Eastern Church this past weekend. Holy Saturday marks one of the most enigmatic of all mysteries—the mystery of Christ’s descent into Hades. Being “put to death in the body,” says Peter, he was “made alive by the spirit through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it, only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also.” Peter here reminds us of two great and glorious truths. First, that we are saved through water, and secondly that the descent of Christ into Hades inaugurates resplendent triumph. A triumph by which Christ “tramples down death by death.”Hank also answers the following questions:When a person is baptized, do they become a new creation right away, or is it an ongoing process? Debra - Stony Plain, AB (15:14)What provision does the Bible make for young children or some adults who don’t have the mental capacity to accept Christ? Robert - Tallahassee, FL (20:34)I have a cross pendant that has discolored over time. I bought a replacement, but what should I do with the old one? Paul - San Diego, CA (23:03)

Observing Holy Friday—The Fatal Torment of Christ

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/03/24), Hank picks up his overview of the days of Holy Week, arriving at Holy Friday, the day a united Church is brought face-to-face with the fatal torment of Jesus Christ. A torment that began in the garden of Gethsemane following the emotional Last Supper of Holy Thursday. That night Jesus was betrayed by Judas, disowned by Peter, and arrested by the temple guard. Before Caiaphas the high priest, he was mocked, beaten, and spat upon. The next morning Jesus—battered, bruised, and bleeding—was stripped and subjected to the brutality of Roman flogging, reducing his body to quivering ribbons of bleeding flesh. As Christ slumped into the pool of his own blood, soldiers threw a scarlet robe across his shoulders, thrust a scepter into his hands, and pressed sharp thorns into his scalp. After they mocked him, they took the scepter and repeatedly struck him on the head. A heavy wooden beam was thrust upon his bleeding body and he was led away to a place called Golgotha. There, the Lord of glory experienced ultimate physical torture in the form of the cross.Today as we remember the passion of the Christ upon the cross, as we recall his dying words “Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit” we are reminded that we too will breathe our last. Whether we are old or young, rich or poor, male or female, we light the sky for the briefest of moments. And then eternity. In the meantime, what we do today will have direct consequences for all eternity. Thus, while the culture seeks to focus your gaze on greatness, Christ rightly focuses your gaze on grace and godliness.

Observing Holy Thursday—The Epicenter of the Divine Narrative

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/02/24), Hank resumes his overview of Holy Week with Holy Thursday, the epicenter of the divine narrative. A narrative that begins with the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. If Adam and Eve had rejected the serpent, they would have eaten from the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge would not have been withheld from them. Instead, they were exiled from the Edenic garden and from traversing the slope leading upward toward the peak of deification. Thankfully, the narrative does not end there. For in the panoply of history a Second Adam clothed himself in fallen humanity. It was above all in his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead that Christ returned humanity to the life of Eden. This then is the great arc of the biblical narrative. From the tree of life in the Edenic garden to the tree of life in the eternal garden. An arch that finds its apex with the Eucharistic bounty spilling forth from the trodden grapes of Golgotha’s hill. The Last Supper that we commemorate on Holy Thursday constitutes the central mystery of the Church. It is the source and zenith of Church life. By it, we are changed from human multiplicity to one body in Christ, the temple of the Holy Spirit. Within the Eucharistic assembly, divine life flows into us and penetrates the fabric of our humanity. The future life is infused into the present one and is blended with it, so that our fallen humanity may be transformed into the glorified humanity of the new Adam, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Observing Spy Wednesday, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/01/24), Hank continues to provide an overview of the days of Holy Week, picking up with Holy Wednesday, otherwise known as Spy Wednesday. For on the Wednesday of the last week of Christ’s earthly sojourn, Judas became a spy for the enemies of the Messiah. On this day, the ancient Church commemorates the ultimate in contrasts. A prostitute transformed into a pure bride, in contrast to a chosen disciple who conspires with sinful men to betray the King of Truth.Hank also answers the following questions:I have a friend who is a member of Rodney Howard-Browne’s church. If he believes in the essentials, how does that make his ministry a cult and how can I explain that to my friend?

Great and Holy Tuesday, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (04/30/24), Hank continues to highlight the days of Holy Week. On Holy Tuesday we commemorate the Parable of the Ten Virgins as found in Matthew chapter 25. In this parable—this extended simile with extraordinary sharp teeth—the coming of Christ is likened to the coming of the bridegroom to the home of his bride during the sacramental ritual of marriage. In the narrative of the parable, there are ten virgins—five wise and five foolish. The five wise virgins are illustrative of those who practice almsgiving and mercy. The five foolish represent those who selfishly squander God’s provisions upon themselves. In the end, the bridegroom arrives and the five who were prepared went in with him to the eternal wedding banquet. And then, says Jesus “the door was shut.” To the five foolish virgins who belatedly asked for the door to be opened the bridegroom replied, “I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.”Hank also answers the following question:My son struggles with knowing that he’s saved. He said that he’s prayed and prayed but doesn’t feel like he hears from God. What can I say to him? Carol - Nashville, TN (19:40)

Examining the Beginning of Holy Week, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (04/29/24), Hank focuses on Holy Week, with Christians in the Eastern Church celebrating Palm Sunday yesterday. Holy Week for Christians in the East begins on Lazarus Saturday. It is on that day that we remember afresh that our Lord Jesus Christ raised Lazarus, a historical reality that points forward to the universal resurrection of all humanity. The next day, Palm Sunday marks the commemoration of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem announced the establishment of the Kingdom of God and a foretaste of the time that He will gather His perfected bride and carry her over the threshold of Jordan into the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. On Holy Monday, the fig tree is set before us as a reminder of the danger inherent in having an appearance of godliness but being devoid of its reality; a reminder to be vigilant and bear fruits of righteousness and repentance.Hank also answers the following questions:If you believe that salvation is “once saved, always saved,” would this mean your free will no longer exists? Tim - Keller, TX (15:51)To me, the term replacement theology seems to be an accurate term as opposed to a misnomer, would you not say? Mark - Vancouver, BC (21:11)

Good Friday: Transformation

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/29/24), Hank concludes the four-part argument for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, transformation. What happened as a result of the resurrection is unprecedented. In the span of a few hundred years, a small band of insignificant believers succeeded in turning an entire empire upside down. The Twelve—minus Judas, plus Paul—were radically revolutionized. Peter, once afraid of being exposed as a follower of Christ, became a lion of the faith. Paul, the ceaseless persecutor, became the chief proselytizer of the Gentiles. Within weeks of the resurrection, not just a few, but an entire community of thousands of Jews, willingly transformed the spiritual and sociological traditions underscoring their national identity. Of one thing Hank has become certain—if twenty-first-century Christians would grasp the reality of resurrection like first-century Christians did, their lives would be totally transformed.Today, Great and Holy Friday, “he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5 NIV). As Theanthropos (God-Man), the spotless Lamb of God lived a perfectly sinless human life and died a sinner’s death to sufficiently atone once for all for the sins of humanity. Isaiah not only foreshadows the death of Christ but His resurrection as well. Isaiah prophetically looks forward to the resurrection of “a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering” as the earnest of our resurrection on the last day. “After the suffering of his soul,” says Isaiah, “he will see the light of life and be satisfied.” In like fashion, our bodies will be resurrected from the dust of the ground. Jesus, who fulfills the entire mosaic of Old Testament resurrection prophecies left no doubt about this coming resurrection: “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned” (John 5:28-29 NIV). If Christ had not himself been resurrected, the promise that he will resurrect dry bones in scattered graves would be as empty as the tomb guaranteeing its fulfillment.

Holy Week: The Appearances of Christ

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/28/24), Hank moves on to the third part of the four-part argument for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the appearances of Christ. In the Acts of the Apostles, Dr. Luke writes that Jesus gave the disciples “many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God” (Acts 1:3 NIV). Likewise, the apostle Paul exudes confidence in the appearances of Christ (1 Corinthians 15). And like Paul, Peter in his powerful Pentecost proclamation confidently communicated that many credible eyewitnesses could confirm the fact of Christ’s physical post-resurrection appearances (Acts 2:29-32). One thing can be stated with ironclad certainty. The apostles did not merely propagate Christ’s teachings, they were absolutely positive that he had appeared to them in the flesh. Additionally, the apostles claimed that Christ appeared to hundreds of people who were still alive. It would have been one thing to attribute these supernatural experiences to people who had already died. It was quite another to attribute them to multitudes who were still alive and available for cross-examination.

Holy Week: The Empty Tomb

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/27/24), Hank continues the trek from Palm Sunday—when Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem precisely the way that Zechariah said he would—to Easter. Yesterday Hank began to talk about the four-part argument that Saint Paul gives in 1 Corinthians 15 which underscores the fact that Christ has risen from the dead. Today Hank moves on to the second part of the argument, the empty tomb. As it is incontrovertible that Christ suffered fatal torment, so too, it is certain beyond reasonable doubt that Christ was buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea and that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. Were it not true, Christianity would not have survived the tomb containing the remains of the Messiah. As the reliability of the resurrection is undermined in the media, Christians must be prepared to demonstrate that Jesus was buried and that on Easter morning some two thousand years ago the tomb was indeed empty. Hank also addresses a question that comes up often on the Bible Answer Man broadcast, “was Jesus really in the grave for three days and three nights?”

Holy Week: The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/26/24), Hank focuses on the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We spend so much time on Christmas and justifiably so because Jesus came in incarnation so that we could experience what it is to take on the divine nature—of course excluding identity of essence. But if there’s no resurrection, there is no hope for Christianity. So, over the next few days, Hank wants to emphasize the significance of resurrection.

Christ’s Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/25/24), Hank discusses Jesus Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This is, of course, celebrated by Christians as Palm Sunday, which the Western Church observed yesterday, and the Eastern Church will celebrate next month. On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Jesus riding into Jerusalem, not as a political messiah, but rather in humility and peace in fulfillment of Zechariah’s famed prophecy: “See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9 NIV). Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem announced the establishment of the Kingdom of God. It was a foretaste of the time that He will gather His perfected bride and carry her over the threshold of Jordan into a New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.

Best of BAM: Dealing With the Age of the Universe, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank says a few words about the issue of the age of the universe. The Bible is not designed to give us the age of the universe, but if you look at general revelation you see God’s handiwork. One of the things we see is the reality that nothing travels faster than the speed of light and that billions of light-years separate us from distant galaxies. That leads logically to the assumption that the age of the universe is measured in billions of years, not thousands.Hank also answers the following questions:Is speaking in tongues necessary for the infilling of the Holy Spirit?

Best of BAM: Belief in Things Unseen, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank brings up a question that is asked often in our culture, “If we can’t see God, how can we know that He really exists?” It’s not uncommon for skeptics to suppose that Christians are irrational to believe in a God they cannot see. In reality, however, it is irrational for skeptics to suppose that what cannot be seen does not exist. Christians and skeptics alike recognize black holes, electrons, laws of logic, and gravity even though all of these are unseen. As Paul wrote in his epistle to the Romans, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” (Romans 1:20 NIV). The order and the complexity of the universe testify to the existence of an uncaused first cause—God.Hank also answers the following questions:What is the biblical doctrine of heaven and the Millennium?

Belief in Things Unseen, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (02/22/24), Hank brings up a question that is asked often in our culture, “If we can’t see God, how can we know that He really exists?” It’s not uncommon for skeptics to suppose that Christians are irrational to believe in a God they cannot see. In reality, however, it is irrational for skeptics to suppose that what cannot be seen does not exist. Christians and skeptics alike recognize black holes, electrons, laws of logic, and gravity even though all of these are unseen. As Paul wrote in his epistle to the Romans, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” (Romans 1:20 NIV). The order and the complexity of the universe testify to the existence of an uncaused first cause—God.Hank also answers the following questions:What is the biblical doctrine of heaven and the Millennium? What is the significance of the 144,000? Joy - Modesto, CA (3:13)When were the dinosaurs created? Why aren’t they mentioned in the Bible?

Presidents’ Day 2024

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (02/19/24), Hank commemorates Presidents’ Day, popularly recognized as honoring especially George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Washington is most remembered for his vital, inspirational leadership during the American Revolution—and Lincoln for his valiant struggle against slavery. In Romans chapter 13 we are commanded to “submit ourselves to governing authorities because there is no authority other than that which is established by God.” And so, a question arises: what are we to do when governing authorities compel us to do that which is in opposition to God’s Word and His will? The apostles answered this succinctly: “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29 NKJV). In the closing moments of the show, Hank says a few words about the Great Lent, which began in the Western Church last week with Ash Wednesday and will begin next month in the Eastern Church.

St. Valentine’s Day, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (02/14/24), Hank discusses the origins of Valentine’s Day, looking at the Orthodox Church’s veneration of Saint Valentine, the Presbyter from Rome, for his martyrdom and as for all its saints, honors St. Valentine as a model of the life in Christ. According to The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, the traditional association of St. Valentine’s Day with courtship is likely connected with certain customs of the pagan festival Lupercalia. If so, this would be another example of Christians usurping a pagan holiday and Christianizing it for the glory of Christ.Hank also answers the following questions:What are your thoughts on street preachers who publicly denounce people?

Remembering A Horrendous Evil

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/22/24), Hank notes that today is a somber day. January 22nd every year is a solemn reminder of a horrendous evil that took place 51 years ago—The U.S. Supreme Court decision forever memorialized as Roe v. Wade. When searching for information on the Roe anniversary online, the first two search results Hank saw were a study in contrast. The first was a letter from the Diocese of Sacramento signed by the Bishop. The letter urged people of goodwill to observe this day with prayers for the legal protection of human life, works of mercy, and penance in reparation for the persistent violations of human dignity inflicted by the practice of abortion. The second search result was a clarion call by Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood decrying what was described as “tireless and cruel attacks on access to abortion and a call to honor the fundamental right to bodily autonomy—a right, says Planned Parenthood, we can no longer count on the Supreme Court to uphold.” A third article that Hank read was from Aaron Turner Jr. titled, “Black Lives Matter Inside the Womb and Out.” In the article, Turner points out that “While it is good for our culture to wrestle with the question regarding the use of deadly force by police against black citizens, a far greater danger against black lives is going largely unnoticed and unprotested by the black community. I am speaking of the danger posed to black lives by abortion.” Turner not only curses this systemic darkness, but he provides a template for action. First, we must pray. Prayer is a more important weapon in this battle than any of us imagine. Second, churches need to speak up on the issue of abortion. And thirdly, we need to come alongside black women—especially black single mothers—and assure them that if they decide to keep their baby, the body of Christ will be there to support them along the way.

Thanksgiving 2023

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/23/23), Hank encourages all who are listening in to enjoy their time on Thanksgiving Day with family and friends to the extent that they can. Thanksgiving is a day that Hank looks forward to every year. Yet Thanksgiving is not just a day; it is a daily manner of life. It is a key that opens the gate of Christ and allows Christians to enter and gain access to all His wonderful provisions and even more profoundly into all the splendor of His Being. “Open for me the gates of the righteous,” wrote the Psalmist, “and I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.” In the Wisdom of Solomon, we read that “the hope of an unthankful man will melt like the wintry frost and flow away like useless water.” Thus, we are exhorted to arise each morning and thank our heavenly Father for the abundance of His mercies, for the blessing of the Lord will melt like ice—evaporate like worthless water—at the appearance of the first rays of sunshine.

Columbus Day 2023

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/09/23), Hank discusses Columbus Day, a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492. In 2020, Columbus Day was the scene of carnage as demonstrators toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt in Portland’s South Park Block. Moreover, the moniker “Stolen Land” was ominously spray-painted across its concrete base. Protest organizers dubbed the event “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” What could possibly motivate American citizens—supposed exemplars of social justice—to behave with such wanton recklessness in a supposed era of “wokeness” and progressive values? In trying to come to grips with this question, Hank was cowed by page after page of Google search results with exclamations that Columbus was a nefarious character—a ruthless money-grubbing, genocidal maniac, who severed hands, raped women, and enslaved gentle people to satisfy white Europeans’ lust for gold. One starts to wonder “how can I trust history?” Mary Grabar, author of the book, Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation Against America asked this very question. A good deal of what you read on the internet is based on Zinn’s historical revisionism. It constitutes a steady diet of poison seeping into the hearts and minds of impressionable children. Grabar exposes the fake history lessons that are systematically turning a new generation of kids against American exceptionalism.

Something To Ponder on the 22nd Anniversary of 9/11

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/11/23), Hank recalls one of the most epic events in American history that took place 22 years ago—the Manhattan massacre of September 11, 2001. And yet in those 22 years, we have largely become complacent to the Islamic terrorism that spawned its devastation. Some have forgotten, and others are blithely unaware of the reality that Islam is the only significant religious system in the history of the human race with a socio-political structure of laws that mandate violence against the infidel. And that this graphic global reality makes Islam a religious ideology espousing terrorism as a permanent policy rather than a temporary expedient. Tragically, the current narrative is that to tell the truth in this regard is tantamount to radicalizing Muslims and exacerbating hostilities that might otherwise lie dormant. That narrative is, of course, patently false. We are at a tipping point in history. While squarely in the blind spot of the West, Christians in the Middle East face mass genocide. Concurrently, a demographic time bomb threatens a Western world seemingly blind to the polygamous rush of migrant Muslims filling the vacuum left by aging, dying, and aborted Europeans. The only real solution to a disintegrating West and resurgent Islam is the power of the Gospel. Thus, says Hank, it is crucial for the church to awaken from a diabetic coma brought on by a steady diet of fast-food Christianity. We must not only be intellectually equipped to communicate the truth of the gospel via answers, biblical literacy, and countering cults—but also be internally equipped during this anti-Judeo-Christian moment. What that means is that the church must be energized for its mission—by a power that is in it but not of it, as underscored by the Apostle Paul in Colossians 1:29. This is the energy that alone is sufficient to empower a twenty-first-century Pentecost moment.

Labor Day 2023

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/04/23), Hank wishes all of you a happy Labor Day and goes into detail on the Labor Day holiday that God gave us long before the government did—our Sabbath Day rest. Just as we are resting today on Labor Day, the Lord commands us to rest on the Sabbath each week. “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do” (Deut. 5:13-14 NIV). So our Labor Day holiday according to God is our Sabbath Day rest, which begs the question: why do Christians rest from their labor on the first day of the week (Sunday), rather than the last day of the week (Saturday)? The answer, says Hank, is encapsulated in just one word—resurrection. Hank also discusses something else that comes to his mind when he thinks about the word labor, and that is what Paul says in 1 Corinthians chapter 3, that each person is going to be rewarded according to their own labor. In other words, what we do now in this life counts for all eternity. Hank uses the illustration of his invitation to play Cypress Point, which he claims to be the most spectacular golf course on Earth. For months he beat his body into submission while dreaming of the day he would experience walking its fairways. Without his strenuous preparations, he would have still experienced the same breathtaking views, however, all his hard work added immeasurably to his experience. That is what heaven will be like. As phenomenal as Cypress Point is, it pales by comparison to what paradise restored will be. Hank spent one day at a golf haven; he will spend an eternity in God’s heaven. It stands to reason, therefore, that he would put a lot more labor into preparing for an eternity in heaven with God than he did for playing eighteen holes of golf.

The History of Racism, and Q&A

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (06/19/23), Hank takes time in the second segment to discuss some of the things that we’ve almost never heard about the history of racism. For example, prior to the nineteenth century, Christians were the most vocal opponents of slavery—you think of people like John Newton, author of the wonderful song Amazing Grace who once was a slave owner before converting to Christianity and becoming one of the most vocal opponents to slavery. But today you have secular progressives extolling the virtues of the Enlightenment and denouncing Christianity as though it is a religion of racism and slavery. If you think about the Enlightenment clearly, you don’t just think about social reform, scientific development, or progress; what you think about is some of the main figures within the Enlightenment—figures who are lauded. People like Voltaire, who said, “The negro race is a species of men as different from ours as the breed of spaniels is from that of greyhounds.” That they are of a “different nature” and “greatly inferior.”Hank also answers the following questions:What is your opinion of Bethel Sozo?What is the difference between giving first fruits and tithing? Are Christians required to tithe?

Memorial Day 2023

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (05/29/23), Hank welcomes you to a special Memorial Day edition of the broadcast. Within the midst of battling the evil of Nazism, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Churchill's words ring true today as we celebrate Memorial Day in the United States. A day to honor those who, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “gave the last full measure of devotion” in their sacrifice for freedom. We here at the Christian Research Institute offer our deepest respect, honor, and thankfulness to those who have sacrificed all to protect and defend the freedoms we enjoy in this country. But we are also committed to preserving freedoms that are definitively being compromised in the present generation. As history demonstrates, we must ever remain vigilant. Which leads to a quintessential question, “Under what conditions is war justified?”Mentioned on today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast:Michael McKenzie, “Onward Christian Soldiers?
