Cogitations e152: about the prodigal son meme

1/14/2020
More
I shared a meme in the WTT group asking if anything stood out as being wrong or not substantive. Many folk commented but no one picked the obvious nor put the parable of the prodigal son in its context. I cannot find a way to share the meme here in the show notes but it read: Jesus told the story of the prodigal son to make a simple point: never mind what you've done, just come home. That is a feel good thought and it is a biblical truism that regardless of what we have done we can make it...

1/8/2020
More
This episode is from a listener questions asking about legalism. I have done allot of content about this issue but I thought I'd take about the issue of legalism again.

Cogitations e143: about women baptizing

12/26/2019

An issue that was uncovered from my last podcast. It seems that many are under the impression that women can not baptize. If one wants to become a Christian that one must seek out a Christian male. The Great Commission is to men and women. In this podcast I talk about some problems with this idea of men only baptizing.

Cogitations e142: about good intentions and God's justice

12/24/2019
More
This episode of Cogitations is about the idea that our good intentions can change the commandments of God. I made a post about an old man in hospice care bing baptized wrongly. Here is what I wrote: Every so often there is a question about baptism and a body part inadvertently coming up out of the water. The answer, no, it is not a scriptural baptism and therefore the person only got wet. So often that answer is met with indignation about God’s grace and mercy. Well, folks, here is the...

Cogitations e141: about how we read things

12/23/2019
More
Evidently a few years ago I shared a meme that had the results of a poll. The meme sounded good and illustrated a point that needed to be made. However, I did a cursory google search and found that the poll on which the meme was based had never happened. It was a total sham. This is the occasion of today's episode of Cogitations. How do we read things? Does the Bible have anything to say about it? Well, of course it does! Take a listen and let me know what you think. If you like what we do...
