Episode 9: When Cain Killed Abel (Genesis 4:1-16)

6/15/2024
Soon after the fall of man, and God's judgment placed upon creation, a manifestation of the ugliness of sin takes place in Adam's posterity. Adam and Eve begin their family, bearing Cain and his brother Abel. Cain was a farmer. Abel was a sheepherder. Both knew the religious obligations taught to them by their parents, which is why we read of the account of their religious offerings in Genesis 4. Cain's mind, though, was not upon worshiping God, but upon worshiping himself. From God's rejection of his offering, Cain's sin consumed him, and instead of doing what was right, he became enraged toward his brother, Abel, and killed him. God passed judgment upon Cain, even though he apparently never learned his lesson. It is a lesson we can all learn from, whether willfully or amid our own religious departure from the presence of God.

Episode 8: Adam and Eve's Trial Continued (Genesis 3:16-24)

6/6/2024
In the previous podcast, Dr. Paul began an exposition of the trial of Adam, Eve, and the devil, and that after Adam and Eve fell from their originally innocent state into sin. In this podcast, Dr. Paul finishes that up that trial by looking at the judgment that God passed on both the woman (Eve) and the man (Adam), which will eventually be passed on to every human being since. It is not a pretty picture, but one that is necessary to understand, if one is to truly understand what the sin nature is, that all humans possess, and the ultimately remedy found on the Gospel, culminating the death of Jesus on the cross at Calvary.

Episode 7: Adam, Eve, and the Snake on Trial (Genesis 3:8-15)

6/4/2024
Shortly after Adam and Eve rebel against God, a trial takes place where God acts as the judge, jury, and executioner. Adam and Eve try to avoid attending the trial by hiding themselves. The snake (i.e. the devil) makes no such move. Four key questions are asked, which are relevant even today, as the rest of humanity has followed Adam and Eve's leading in trying to run and hide from God, rather than run unto Him in a contrite and repentant spirit. Such is the nature of sin and what it does to everyone and everything affected by it. Ultimately, though, amid all the questioning and shifting of blame, there is a silver lining in the sense that the Gospel is proclaimed by none other than God himself. One day, the devil himself will be crushed by one of the Eve's offspring, which will finalize what it means by "good news" to those privy to acknowledge what God does in the person of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

Episode 6: The Fall of Man (Genesis 3:1-7)

6/3/2024
In a pivotal and key portion of the Bible (Genesis 3:1-7), Dr. Paul discusses the Fall of Man and how it came about. Satan, as the serpent, has used the same strategy since his successful exchange with Eve to cause humanity to act autonomously from God and carry on it rebellious ways. It all starts by questioning God's Word, which ultimately leads to questioning God's authority and then integrity. When all is said and done, those who subscribe to the devil's wiles ultimately see him as a great liberator and God as the "bad guy."

Episode 5: Creation Redux and the First Marriage (Genesis 2:4-24)

6/2/2024
In Genesis 2:4-24, the writer returns to the creation narrative and adds a few more details that are not found in Genesis 1. Those details are "generations" or "histories." Moses, as is frequently credited with writing Genesis, tells us that man's constitution was physically made up of "dust" ore elements common to the earth, as well as "the breath of life" from God, thereby making him a "living creature." As Dr. Paul points out, the combination makes it clear that humanity had a beginning at a point in time, and credits God as the supernatural person who brought it to be. It is something that no atheist has an alternative explanation. Probably the most important part of Genesis 2, even though all that is discusses are important, is the recognition of man's loneliness, and the steps God took to dispel it. From Adam's literal, physical side, God took one of his ribs and formed his "wife." The two would not only reflect the image of God within their marriage relationship, any loneliness that man might suffer, as a human being, would be dispelled. The woman would become a fitting helper, not only as a companion in work, but as one who would help the man fulfill God's commands to be fruitful and multiply. It would be a beautiful relationship that would go right along with God's description of his creation being "very good."

Episode 4: God rested and it was very good (Genesis 1:28-2:3)

5/28/2024
Dr. Paul finishes up his commentary on the last four verse of Genesis 1, which addresses the subject of God charging mankind to "get busy" and fill the earth with human beings and the subjugation of the created order by them. Then, Dr. Paul turns to the subject of God resting on the seventh day. Was God tired from exerting himself too much after creating the heavens and the earth or was God establishing a model to be followed by humans in their work-worship pattern of life?

Episode 3: Day Six and the Image of God (Gen 1:24-31)

5/24/2024
On the sixth day of creation God finished inhabiting the earth with all the animals, birds, and creatures. But, it was also on that day that he created human beings: the crown jewel of his creation. Not only did the creation of humans give a glimpse into the Trinitarian nature of God by stating, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness," it has left theologians and philosophers with a subject that has been discussed voluminously for centuries. What exactly does the image of God entail? It in this podcast that Dr. Paul touches upon the final aspect of God's creation, namely the image of God, that will have a later effect upon all other doctrines that God will reveal later, and will differentiate the God of the Bible from all other false gods and goddesses created by man.

Episode 2: The First Five Days (Genesis 1:3-23)

5/22/2024
Secular scientists and philosophers frequently opine about the existence of all that is, but rarely traverse their way back to the origin of existence. It is not that they do not speculate about the age of the universe or perhaps even the age of the earth. It is that it is impossible for the to speak authoritatively, since none of them were around when the universe began, nor were they any human beings around at all! Therefore, they prefer to jump into the middle of the evolutionary model they have created and explain how they believe human beings originated, and then leave the "mythology" of creation origins to others to wrestle with. The Bible, though, makes it quite clear who created the universe, the earth, and all that inhabits both. It gives a timeline of the order of events, which culminates in the creation of the greatest creature of them all, humanity. In this particular episode, Dr. Paul takes a look at the first five days of creation and what came to be out of nothing on those days. More importantly, Dr. Paul credits God with speaking everything into existence, as he prepared the heavens and the earth for the arrival of mankind; God's crown jewel of creation. It is something that certain secularists are willing to keep an open mind, while others repel amid their hostility and vanity, as they suppress the truth in unrighteousness.

Episode 1: In the Beginning (Genesis 1:1-2)

5/20/2024
One of the best ways to understand God's creation and man's place in it is to go back to the beginning when God created all things and then follow the progress of how things went from "very good" to "every intention of the thoughts of [man's] heart was only evil continually." Dr. Paul's new study in the Book of Genesis does just that. He not only credits God for all that is created, but will explain how God managed to recreate fallen mankind later through the sacrifice of His Son—the Second Adam. Until then, the opening episode addresses not only the exclusivity of God in the creation story, but Trinitarian aspect of creation, which argues that God the Father, Jesus, Christ, and the Holy Spirit were present before the foundations of the earth and universe were spoken into existence out of nothing.

The Book of Romans: Episode 43: Paul's Final Instructions and Doxology

3/27/2024
In Romans 16:17-27, the Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Roman Christians with instructions that are clearly at odds with today's ideas about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Paul warns the church in Rome about certain characters who would be divisive and scandalous. Those individuals were not only NOT Christians, even though many of them most likely wanted to be thought of as such, they were deceivers who would use Christian talk and flattery to trick the Romans into believing their deceptive, false "gospel." Naivete was something that the Roman Christians did not need to be, but instead, they needed to be wise. By way of application, Paul's instruction needs to be trumped from the roof tops today, in an age where false prophets and teachers abound, and have taken many well-meaning individuals hostage through cunning and deceit. Lastly, the Apostle Paul offers a short doxology, glorifying God through the Lord Jesus, and especially for the gospel message that was a "mystery," but is now fully revealed in the person of Jesus. Thank God for his grace! Thank God for his revelation! Thank God for his Son, who willing paid the sin debt of humanity in-full, so that sinners "may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in" Jesus. Amen!

The Book of Romans: Episode 42: Paul Greets His Pals

3/26/2024
As Paul begins to close his letter to the Romans, he takes timeout to greet his many friends and fellow co-workers in the Lord. Paul lists 26 individuals by name, along with several others not named specifically. It is further evidence that even though Paul had not founded the church in Rome, his personal influence was acknowledged over the course of the years, as well as the thousands of miles he traveled sharing the "good news" of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. They were his pals, in the vernacular, and those whom Dr. Paul points out are the Christian's only real friends in the world, namely fellow Christians.

The Book of Romans: Episode 41: Paul's Plan to Visit Rome

3/20/2024
As the Apostle Paul approaches the end of his letter to the Roman Christians, he reiterates his plans to visit them prior to journeying further to Spain. There was no more work for him to do, and finally the opportunity had arisen whereby he could now take the gospel to "the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Dr. Paul, though, points out that the Apostle's Paul journey was filled with difficulty and intrigue that he probably did not fully anticipate, as was recorded in Acts 21-26. So, Dr. Paul takes some time to discuss those difficulties by alluding to one of the most compelling chapters dealing with Paul's journey just prior to him boarding a ship and sailing for Rome, Acts 26. It is part of the reason why Paul would write the Romans, "I know that when I come to you I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ" (Rom. 15:29). Amen.

The Book of Romans: Episode 40: Ethnic Ministering

3/13/2024
As the Apostle Paul winds down his letter to the Christians in Rome, he reminds them of his call to the Gentiles. That his ministry and priestly service was to spread the gospel to those who had not heard, so that their converted lives would be acceptable to God. Paul was sold-out on his mission, and serves as example to those who claim to be Christians, but seem content in their apathy and complacency.

The Book of Romans: Episode 39: Christ Our Example and Only Hope

3/7/2024
In Romans 15:8-13, the Apostle Paul stresses the fact of Jesus' servitude to the Jews, as well as the Gentiles. The purpose was to not only reveal the truth of God in a real, tangible way, but to, as Paul wrote, "confirm the promises given to the patriarchs" and "that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy." Paul then resorts to showing from the Law, Writings, and the Prophets how the Gentiles were now a part of God's chosen people, alongside those ethnic Jews that were redeemed by the same principle of faith, through grace. Ultimately, such conversion on the part of God should instill joy and peace, through the Spirit of God, as the believer abounds in a hope that he/she otherwise was without prior to God's grace act of redemption through Jesus Christ.

The Book of Romans: Episode 38: Unity with a Real Purpose

3/5/2024
All kinds of groups these days are clamoring for unity, whether in sports, politics, or even moral standards. The problem with their pleas is that none of them have an objective standard by which to validate the unity effort. In Romans 15:-7, the Apostle Paul addresses the subject of unity within the Christian faith. There were apparently some within the Church at Rome who were mature, except in the area of recognizing their obligation to help the less mature. Paul makes it perfectly clear that we, as Christians, are to bear one another's failings or burdens with the express hope of building others up, rather than tearing them down. Ultimately, though, by preferring other's welfare over ourselves, to the glory of God, an establishment of camaraderie or unity that takes place within the Kingdom of God. The mature become that much more mature, and the weak are matured, as well, as they grow in the image of God unto the glory God.

The Book of Romans: Episode 37: Do NOT Destroy God's Work

2/12/2024
Fresh off instructing the Roman Christians to cease judging one another, the Apostle Paul drives home his instruction by telling them to refrain from placing any stumbling blocks before each other as well. Instead, they were to focus on what matters in the Christian faith, which is to live by faith and build one another up in the faith. Why? Because not all Christians are equally mature, and some take more time and nurture than others when it comes to understanding the faith they profess, as God works in everyone's lives to form and shape each individual to be God-honoring servants of Jesus Christ. Those who refuse or fail to comply with Paul's command are considered to be acting unfaithfully and hence destroying God's work.

The Book of Romans: Episode 36: Trivial Pursuit

2/9/2024
In Romans 14:1-12, the Apostle Paul warns the Roman Christians about condemning fellow Christians regarding the eating of certain foods or worshiping on certain days. In one instance, the condemnation is legalistic, while in the other it is libertarian; both of which are self-indictments when considering the maturity of the Christian who engages in them. Let God do the judging and let the Christian focus on the main things involving the Gospel. For everyone will stand at the Judgment Seat of God one day, and not one Christian will be sitting on God's throne to help Him decide who is deserving of what.

2/5/2024
In Romans 13:8-14, the Apostle Paul stresses what Jesus had talked about when asked about the greatest commandment. The exception is Paul addresses human relationships, specifically within the church. Christians are to love one another, and then by way of extension, love others. They were not to be like the world, whereby illicit sex and drunkenness were the order of the day. But they were to exemplify Jesus Christ, refrain from lusts of the flesh, and fulfill the law through the principle of love.

The Book of Romans: Episode 34: Christian Submission to Government Authority

2/2/2024
Romans 13:1-7 is probably one of the more controversial passages of Scripture when it comes to Christian conduct. In it the Apostle Paul instructs that all Christians should be in total submission to civil, government authorities. Why? Because Almighty God is the one who has ordained civil government to keep orderliness in society and evil at bay. What God has also done by issuing such an ordination is erase the idea that Christianity should have no part is conducting civil government. It is a major blow to those who believe that government should stress the oft-quoted "separation of church and state" and thereby set up a purely secular state. What God has in mind, though, is that a government that is run in "good" order is the ideal over one that is godless and lawless. For in the former there is orderliness and life, that ultimately glorifies God, while in the latter there chaos and death, that ultimately glorifies the "god of this world."

The Book of Romans: Episode 33: Avenging Evil

2/1/2024
In Romans 12:14-21, the Apostle Paul continues his practical instruction on the Christian life, and especially that of avoiding hypocrisy, by taking a somewhere different course of action when it comes to dealing with evil. Rather than curse the persecutor, bless him. Rather than act arrogant toward the lowly, commune with them. Rather than taking out one's own vengeance upon evil people, if they happen to be hungry, feed them; if thirsty, give them something to drink. It is similar to what Jesus taught when he told his disciples to "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" and "do good to those that hate you" (Mt 5:44; Lk 6:27).
