Cremation, Sainthood, Unforgivable Sin, and Other Questions

From time to time, we receive questions from folks who are trying to figure out an important point of theology or biblical doctrine. And we enjoy getting to offer our thoughts in the context of those personal interactions, whether in-person or online. 

While we don’t always have great answers, we think it’s important to faithfully wrestle with the questions we receive (and that we have ourselves). That’s part of the heartbeat of our podcast.

On this episode, we tackle some common questions that we hear, offering our thoughts on a range of theological concerns.

Here are the questions we focus on:

  • Is it wrong for a Christian to get cremated?
  • What is a saint? Are only some Christians saints?
  • Is suicide the unforgivable sin? 
  • What is the “age of accountability”?

If you have a question you’d like to hear us discuss on a future episode, email us at [email protected]!
