              During our 2014 National Conference (http://www.ligonier.org/learn/conferences/overcoming-the-world-2014-national-conference/) Voddie Baucham, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Derek Thomas answered questions ranging from how God views the elect before they are saved, defining a Reformed view of speaking in tongues, and how to know if we’ve truly “repented enough.” Questions: 1. Athanasius confronted the issue of the deity of Christ. What is the strongest enemy the church faces today? (00:10) 2. If God wants us to spend all eternity with Him, why didn’t He just put us with Him from the beginning? (08:43) 3. How do we deal with knowing some of our loved ones may be headed to perdition? (11:29) 4. Since we are chosen before the foundation of the world, how does God view us before we are born again? (15:30) 5. Dr. Baucham, you said that you had overcome numerous struggles as a married adult man due to not having your father around when younger. I can relate. Can you talk about this a bit? (16:42) 6. I am trying to reconcile the death of my son. How do I deal with my anger against God experienced as I am in this dark time? (20:08) 7. Since God is slow to anger and patient, why, when man first sinned, was His wrath and punishment so severe? (23:19) 8. What is the minimal amount of gospel truth that must be believed to be saved? (25:43) 9. How can we overcome the view that the OT portrays an unloving and ungracious God? (29:25) 10. Can you discuss the relationship between God’s sovereignty in salvation and man’s responsibility? (33:30) 11. What is the balance between standing for truth and maintaining the unity of the Spirit? (34:08) 12. About Luther’s anti-Semitism seen in his writings—How can these attitudes and actions of the father of the Reformation be justified? (38:26) 13. What is the Reformed view of speaking in tongues? (43:20) 14. Given that we are not of the world, but sent into the world, what should our political involvement be, particularly for moral issues? (46:22) 15. I have a friend who says she is saved but has no need for the church. How can I help her return to church? (49:00) 16. How can pastors encourage their flocks to engage the world in the most effective way in the public square? (52:04) 17. Is repentance more than a change of mind? How can I know that I’ve repented enough?

                During our 2014 National Conference (http://www.ligonier.org/learn/conferences/overcoming-the-world-2014-national-conference/) Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, and R.C. Sproul answered questions ranging from addressing how we should speak with those who have embraced a homosexual lifestyle, to the use of images of Jesus and recent movies featuring biblical themes. Questions: 1. How do US army chaplains stay faithful to God and His truth, and provide the gospel to same-sex couples? 2. How do they stay faithful amidst the persecution? (00:13) 3. I have a son who has entered in to a homosexual lifestyle. How do I handle this, how do I act, what do I say? (02:58 ) 4. I have many Christian friends who are libertarians and say the state should not be involved in marriage at all. Is this a correct position? (14:13) 5. I have a relative who is constantly trying to say that if I try to say something is false or sinful I am “condemning” the person or the thing and am not being loving. What do I say in response? (23:13) 6. Is personal peace and affluence the biggest impediment to Christian witness? (28:37) 7. How do I explain the reality of sin? (29:41) 8. Since there is one God, why is it that we have so many different views and denominations? (30:27) 9. We live in a rural area without access to solid biblical teaching, let alone Reformed teaching. The nearest church with such teaching is 2 hours drive away. How should we agree to meet with and serve when we don’t agree with things taught from the pulpit? (36:04) 10. Dr. Lawson, could you elaborate on the Lord’s concept of salt and light in the Sermon on the Mount and how He describes Christian character? (37:40) 11. Dr. Mohler, is homeschooling a retreat from the world? Can we put children in school and expect them to engage the world? (42:05) 12. What is the biblical way we should think about movies such as, Son of God, Noah, God’s Not Dead, and Heaven is for Real? (45:25) 13. What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone teaching three and four year-olds? 14. How do we prepare them for a world that will be against them if they follow Jesus?
