This is the 8th episode of Ask Dr. E and we are loving your questions!

Today, Dr. E answers questions about salvation for people groups other than the Israelites in ancient times, what happens when people – specifically well-known evangelical leaders – denounce their faith, conflict in Israel and ways to prepare to travel there, calvinism, and what Christ really did between His death and resurrection.

Questions & Answers:


I’ve been reading a lot about the Israelites lately and I was curious if there was salvation for any of the other people groups that were alive during that time, or if all of the other people that were alive during the Israelites time weren’t saved because they weren’t part of that group?

Scripture referenced:

  • Joshua 2:1-24
  • Hebrews 11:31
  • Ruth (book of)

Resource referenced:


Would love you to one day help us understand what happens to those who denounce their faith and walk away like Joshua Harris and now, sadly, Marty Sampson.

Scripture Referenced:

  • Philemon 22-24
  • Colossians 4:14
  • 2 Timothy 4:10
  • 2 Corinthians 7:5


I have a question regarding the Israel trips. One of my hesitations is that I feel like I’m still so ignorant about the conflict and the situation over there, and I just wanted to know if you could summarize everything at a middle school level, simplify it, and discuss that or share books you’d recommend before someone does that trip.



What is your view on Calvinism? Is the evangelical church becoming more calvinist?


What was Christ’s purpose in going and proclaiming to the saints in prison?

Scripture Referenced:

  • 1 Peter 3:18-20
  • 1 Peter 4:4-6
