Often people quote the Bible, thinking that the Bible teaches that we should not judge other people. That is not what the Bible teaches.

Rapp Report Daily episode 50 What should be the Christian response to evil?   Christians recognize that evil exists in the world, but instead of denying it or trying to avoid accountability, we embrace it and turn to in repentance to our Savior.  As Christians, we should be encouraging others who do not know Jesus Christ to do the same.  The presence of evil is the recognition that we sin against a holy and just God.  The solution is repentance.

Rapp Report Daily episode 41 Did people drink alcohol in the first century?  The answer is yes they did.  Alcohol served a purpose in killing dysentery in water.  In fact, people would have had to drink some level of alcohol to avoid being sick from the water.  In the first century, they did not have water filtration as we do today.  In many places around the world, people have to be careful with the water they drink.  The first century was no different.  However, there is a difference between the alcohol that they would have had for their water and what the Bible calls a strong drink.

Rapp Report Daily episode 37 There is one key Bible verse that proves that no one that makes the claim that they were once a Christian ever was.  In  1 John 2:19, states that anyone that leaves the Christian community does so because they were never part of the Christian community.  The purpose of the verse is to show that those who leave do so to expose they were never a Christian.  Christian is one that would always persevere to the end.  Therefore, when someone says they were once a Christian they are admitting that they have left what they cannot leave.  Thus, they were never a Christian, they were only a hypocrite that stopped pretending.

Rapp Report Daily episode 36 Sometimes you hear people make the false claim that they de-converted from Christianity.  The argument they make is that they were once a Christian and trusted in God as in the Bible as the ultimate authority, however, they have now changed their understanding.  This shows a fundamental lack of understanding of what it means to be a Christian.  To be a Christian requires one to put their ultimate trust in God and the Bible.  When someone has their alternate entrusts in something they cannot be convinced otherwise.  When a person claims that they have de-converted from Christianity that is proof that they never were a Christian because her ultimate authority was not God and the Bible but themselves.
