Someone presented an interesting question to Joy: Can God be in the presence of sin? So we dive into what that particular question is in reference to, what we know about God’s holiness, omnipresence, omniscience, and Summer talks tabernacle things. Then we answer an adorable voicemail with a question about essential oils, and we follow up on some concerns about our episode on food with Douglas Wilson.
3:30 Summer wants to know how to handle a very excited & sweet five-year-old with no paper mâché skills who insists on making you a piñata.
11:00 Joy explains why we want to answer the question, “Can God be in the presence of sin?”
14:27 The verse that brings this up is Habakkuk 1:13, because it says that God cannot look at evil. How do we understand that in context?
18:20 The context of Habakkuk and the focus of the book are something we should be familiar with, and helps answer this question.
28:37 A quick discussion on the tabernacle, and what it can tell us about God’s presence and holiness.
32:15 We answer a voicemail question from listeners in Turkey about essential oils and why we don’t like recommending things.
44:18 We answer questions and concerns that were brought to us about our episode with Doug Wilson on food. Do we care if you have allergies? Do we really think Twinkies are good for you? What does Doug mean by “God doesn’t care what you eat”?
