In this episode I answer a question in the Q & A Forum: “What Jesus says in Matthew 7:21 unsettles me because it indicates that you can only get into heaven if you do God’s will.

What is spiritual warfare? Why do some avoid it? Isn’t the Bible just ‘out of date’? Who is our enemy? Does possession still happen? How do we win?! I discuss all this and more (put on your seatbelts) with Jon Thompson, author of Deliverance.
It’s a crazy time, like living through an emotional earthquake. What does Jesus means when he says to be ‘born again,’ and how can this radical re-orientation of our lives stabilize and equip us for the living of these days?
