1) Kelly: Did God initially send Jesus ONLY for the Jew’s salvation? If the Jews had accepted Jesus right from the start, would the Gentiles have been lost forever with no hope of salvation?
Cara: What exactly is the difference between a jew and a gentile?
2) Kelly: Regarding “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” These verses seem to be saying that God already has a list of who will be saved. Please shed some light on “the thing behind the thing” because it seems to contradict so many things. For instance, God so loved the world, he gave his only son, that WHOSOEVER believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
(Im guessing you’ll get into the “Jacob I loved…” thing here? other wise I can add that as a question later on)
How does one know if they are predestined or not?
Why do evangelism?
(Maybe some other common objections here)
General / private Q&A
Question 3: What does Paul mean in chapter 1 that people are “without excuse” ()? What happens if people don’t ever hear the Gospel?
Question 4: What is the deal with that 25 dollar word in Romans 3 when it says that Jesus was the “propitiation by His blood” and how is that related to salvation
