Here are the first five sessions of our “Dealing with Doubt” class if you would like to listen to them:

      I really would’ve liked to be there, but I have Tuesday night classes, unfortunately.

      I hope it continues.

      Thanks for this series guys. I listened to the first 4 episodes last night (I work the graveyard shift) This is a great service you’re doing for the church. As always, your transparancy and empathy were hallmarks. I pray these podcasts get a wide audience.

      The doubt that bothers me is assurance doubt. Why does it say in Luke that many will “TRY” to enter the narrow gate but will not be able to? The verse seems to imply salvation is not open to all how ask Jesus for it.

    • Ed Kratz

      Debra, that is a great question. The context there in Luke 13 is that of the religious leaders. Those who “try” to enter, are those who believe that they can enter without repentance (v. 3). They believe that they have a right to be there because of the Jewish heritage. But Christ says that only those who repent will not perish.

      In other words, they do try, but their prideful presupposition is their undoing.

      Wow, great so far! The doubt that gets to me every time is the doubt of love and acceptance. I always am questioning and challenging myself concerning God’s complete, full and secure love and acceptance because of my short-comings, sin and failures every day. Some times every moment it seems. My spirit longs and desires to obey but I find myself constantly succumbing to whatever temptation that comes my way, thus, I wrestle with how can God continue to accept me and love me if I continue to fail. I know in my head it is only through His Son, Jesus Christ and His atonement on the cross, but fleshing that out into every day life is a continual struggle of mine. I guess this is where I lack a cohesive understanding of God’s abundant grace, I don’t know?

      The fifth session seems to be identical to the fourth. The download files have the same name.

      Sorry about that. I fixed it. Session five is now up.

      Thanks Michael. BTW – TTP is absolutely wonderful. Almost through with the first course – Introduction to Theology. Also looking forward to using the Discipleship Program when available in May in a men’s small group. CAN’T WAIT!!

      In one of your lectures you distinguish faith from unbelief. Is there hope for someone who has fallen into unbelief (I think more than just doubt), and then returns to faith in Jesus? Some passages in Hebrews (chapters 6, 10) are confusing and make it seem like doubt that big after coming to faith disqualify you from God’s grace. What do you think?
