We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top 6. Number 6. The theory is an idea that between Genesis chapter 1 verse 1 and verse 2 there was a gap. So verse 1 says, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Verse 2 is after the gap. And the earth was formless and void. And darkness was over the surface of the deep. So they say between there was a gap and that everything was fine and then the angelic realm happened and the fall happened and God had to do stuff again and kind of move again. Kind of recreate, kind of. There's a gap. So that's the issue and I don't hold to it at all.

Number 5. I wanted to ask about the difference between imputation and impartation, especially regarding Jesus bearing our sin. Can sin be imputed to Jesus without contaminating him through impartation? Yes, because to impute is a legal transfer and impart is a substance transfer.

Those are basically the differences. So to impart something to somebody has a similar meaning to impute but impute is strictly a legal thing. And so to impart is a kind of a transference of more than just legality or something other than legality but a kind of presence or essence or something like that to impart this to him. It gave him the ability to see imparted him. But to impute is a legal transfer. And so our sins were imputed to Christ.

Number 4. When Jesus went to the cross, what is the atonement and what does it accomplish? The atonement is that act that brings two or more parties who are separated for whatever reason into a proper relationship. And the atonement can be carried out in different ways. If my wife and I have had an argument, we can make atonement, so to speak, by confessing, I blew it here, I shouldn't have said that. We make amends usually through an act. It could be a confession here, stuff like that. But with God, the act of atonement is through the work of Christ. And there's theological reasons why that has to be the case.

But that's basically what it is. Number 3. My father died three years ago, and now I've lost both parents. And I know that I will see her again. I know my mother's a Christian, but how do I get through life here until I see her again? Because it's all I can do to get one foot in front of the other day in and day out.

The answer is you put one foot in front of the other and you walk when you go one hour at a time. When I lost my mom, I remember the pain and the suffering and the funeral and all of that. But people are different. And my hope is so strong in Christ that through the pain and suffering, I felt that comfort of God's presence. And I find comfort in the comfort. Now, that may sound a little odd, but when you're comforted, you realize God's there. And that further comforts me. I'm able to take my eyes off the pain and suffering and put them on Him while I'm in the pain and suffering. And that's just something we have to do as Christians.

Number 2. I've heard people tell me that His actual name is Yeshua. I'm just trying to understand and make sure that when I'm praying, I'm saying the right name and addressing Him correctly. Greek words have number values assigned to them for lexicons or dictionaries. Jesus in Greek is spelled Iota Ea Sigma Omicron Upsilon Sigma, Iesous.

This is how we would pronounce it in modern pronunciation of the Greek letters. The Greek don't have a J sound, but we say Jesus. You don't find anything in the New Testament that says call Jesus Yeshua.

It does not occur. Now, when we go, I think it's Matthew 1 21. So the conception of and the birth of Jesus. Now the birth is verse 18. The birth of Jesus Christ was as follows when his mother had been betrothed and Joseph, her husband, etc. And the Lord appeared to him to Joseph in a dream saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife for the child conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son and you shall call his name Iesous. Jesus.

That's how we pronounce it in English. God hates sin, but he loves the sinner. You don't find that in the script. I need help with that.

I cannot. So Psalm five, five, the boastful shall not stand before your eyes. You hate all who do iniquity. Here's Psalm 11 five, the Lord test the righteous and the wicked and the one who loves violence, his soul hates. Now let's go to Romans nine. He started verse nine for this is the word of promise at this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son. And not only this, but there was Rebecca also when she had conceived twins by one man or father Isaac for though the twins were not yet born and had not done anything good or bad so that God's purpose according to his choice would stand not because of works, but because of him who calls it was said to her the older will serve the younger. Just as it is written, Jacob I loved and Esau I hated.

So does God hate the sinner? Yes. Goodbye, goodbye. It's time to go. Say goodbye. Why is it sad? Makes us remember the good times we've had.

Although we love to the end of the road, it's time to say goodbye. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six.
