Did Jesus learn? I got into a debate recently with some people who think Jesus never had to learn anything. This sounds like Gnostic heresy to me. One thing the Gnostics believed was that Jesus wasn’t fully human, but only appeared human. Learning is part of being human, right?
Does God care about our good works? Yes… and no. Good works do not make God love us more. But since sin hurts us, God does not want us to sin. The reason God hates sin is because of how much sin damages and harms His children. Sin hurts us! That is why He doesn’t want us to sin! That is why He warns us against sin and pleads with us to turn away from it.
Has Jesus delayed His return? Many feel that Jesus is delaying His coming for various reasons, none of which make much sense. When will Jesus return? Some think He is delaying His return because He is creating a new world for us and it takes forever. Others think it is because Jesus is waiting for the full number of Gentiles to come in. What is the truth?
I have always struggled with the ending to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It never seemed to fit Scripture. So I figured Lewis was wrong… But what if Lewis was right, and it was I who was wrong in my understanding of Scripture? Hmmm…. maybe the ending to Lewis’ masterpiece needs to be reconsidered.
