A Clear Lens is all about apologetics, Christianity, philosophy, and worldview with an eye on Luke 10:27 & 2 Corinthians 10:5

Sep 23, 2019

On this episode, Nate answered these questions:

– What happens to aborted babies when they die? (4:06)
– The Bible talks about God’s wrath and the anger of God. The Bible also tells us not to be quick to anger. Doesn’t this make God a hypocrite?
(23:36)
– If we are raptured and with Jesus, will we have a new mind devoid of sinful thoughts? 
(32:23)
