What is the meaning of “Zion” in the Bible and today? Which text do homosexual theologians use to argue that Jesus blessed a homosexual union? What did Paul mean when he spoke of turning someone over to Satan?   It’s time to ask Dr. Brown your toughest questions!

Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: There be many questions as we study specific verses, and issues that come up as we try to work through theology; but as I’ve said before, major on the majors.  Put your spiritual roots down deep, and you will never be shaken.

Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: I expect deception to increase, I expect the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit to increase.  The tools that were used by the first-century believers will work for us today.  The truth continues to set us free; those that give themselves to sin will fall under delusion.  Walk carefully, but walk in confidence.

  1. Dr. Brown,
    Hah…
    Seeing as how it is a national occurrence? They trekked all the way from New York (stock exchange?), stopping to do certain rituals on the way to L.A. … and this involves the elders of the Mayans and Hopi and I think several other religions or something?… Anyways, just thought I’d ask!!!!!

    BTW My friend’s wife [she doesn’t know we asked for advice here — i.e.: last Friday Q’s & A’s] said she felt that he was showing a lot more care and that their marriage was improving — that they weren’t just ‘friends’, but she felt that he was truly her ‘husband’, instead.

    Just FYI! Thanks!

  2. Dear Dr. Brown,

    I don’t think that I’ve ever thanked you for answering some important questions that I’ve asked in the past. During that time, I was really struggling with questions that troubled my heart and the truth and love of the answers that you gave me was so life-giving. It changed my life. Thank you. The truth hurts sometimes, but I am beginning to understand why we need to hear it anyway. I thought to myself. Here is a man who is full of knowledge in many areas and who is also full of years, so he must know something that can help me in my life as I begin my own journey. Your faithfulness to God and your fair perspective in my view makes you trustworthy. I am very thankful that there are people like you in this world. May God bless you in the great amount of work that you do. Thank you again. I should have thanked you long ago.

  3. Hey Dr. Brown and staff,

    I was wondering about 1 John 1:9 were it states “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”…is the apostle john speaking to the believer, as far as we should be continuing to ask for forgiveness, or is he speaking to the unbeliever. Assuming the unbeliever confesses thier sins, and accepts christ work on the cross they’re sins are forgiven past present and future, do we still as believers confess our sins and ask for forgiveness?..i know we need to repent when we recognize our sins by turning to God, but should we approach God in thanksgiving thanking him for his grace knowing that our snis are forgiven and ask him to give us stregnth to stop sinning and guidance, or do we ask God for forgiveness,and continue to ask for forgiveness??..it seems to me the latter would make Jesus the messiahs sacrifice on the cross in “vain” or not “enough”, or am i missing something???..ive been dealing with this for the last few days, and cant seem to wrap my brain around it. Your help would be greatly appreciated. You brother In christ-xavier

  4. I love Dr. Brown’s opposing voice he does! Haha-it cracks me up every time!!! He captures perfectly how annoying it sounds. Honey, you know that dress … “Well, watta …meh blah blaaaah!”

    My most favorite voice he did was when someone was surprised to see such and such person because they thought he/she didn’t deserve to be there.”WELL, WHAT’S IS HEEE DOING HERE!?!?”

    Anyway, thanks for the biblical answers and humor, Dr. brown

  5. xavier-
    This may help you answer your question about 1John 1:9. Read the below verses. Paul is speaking to the church.

    GREAT question by the way.

    Blessings.

    1 Corinthians 5:1-13

    I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on among you, something so evil that even the pagans don’t do it. I am told that you have a man in your church who is living in sin with his father’s wife. And you are so proud of yourselves!
    Why aren’t you mourning in sorrow and shame? And why haven’t you removed this man from your fellowship? Even though I am not there with you in person, I am with you in the Spirit. Concerning the one who has done this, I have already passed judgment in the name of the Lord Jesus.
    You are to call a meeting of the church, and I will be there in spirit, and the power of the Lord Jesus will be with you as you meet. Then you must cast this man out of the church and into Satan’s hands, so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved when the Lord returns.
    How terrible that you should boast about your spirituality, and yet you let this sort of thing go on. Don’t you realize that if even one person is allowed to go on sinning, soon all will be affected? Remove this wicked person from among you so that you can stay pure.
    Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us. So let us celebrate the festival, not by eating the old bread of wickedness and evil, but by eating the new bread of purity and truth. When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin.
    But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or who are greedy or are swindlers or idol worshipers. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. What I meant was that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or a drunkard, or a swindler. Don’t even eat with such people.
    It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your job to judge those inside the church who are sinning in these ways. God will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, “You must remove the evil person from among you.”

  6. Jesse,
    Me, too: I love the humor, here!
    So many things I enjoy about this show; being that things are so serious, when he makes the “dumb guy” voice, its so funny!! I laugh almost every time.
