Caller Matt from Texas asks what are the defining doctrines of Christianity? Matt points to the “Doctrine Grid” on CARM’s website. However, Matt points out that it is the individual regenerative act of God that secures one’s salvation, not simply believing a collection of doctrines.

Caller William from Chicago asks if communism might in any way be acceptable in a Christian atmosphere? Matt points out that in the sense of sharing things in common with others is not necessarily inconsistent with Christianity.
