In this mini, we discuss how the parent/child relationship, and how we discern and care and protect our children is very the same analogy that we see in scripture about caring for the infants in Christ. We talk about what that means.
In this episode, we spend about 30 minutes on establishing God's immutabiltiy, and what that means, and how that relates to doctrine.
We spend the last 40 minutes focusing directly on the relational status of infants and children with the Lord. Are they born cut off? Are they sinners? Are they enemies of God from birth? What principles apply to infants and children and how does it relate to Christ's atonement and guilt?
In this episode we have our dear brother and friend, Dr. Leighton Flowers, on the show to discuss the Universal Witness of God. Leighton is part of the Trinity Commission, a consortium of podcasts associated with Trinity Seminary.
We focus specifically on Romans 7:9-12, and what it means by being alive apart from the Law, and when "the commandment" came Paul died. What is this Law? What is "the commandment"? Why is the Law holy, and the commandment holy, righteous, and good? What commandment is meant to produce life?
How was the gospel presented pre-cross? Prior to Jesus and the cross, how did you share the good news that one must obey to be saved? One can look at the 4000 years before Jesus and see salvation was still presented the same way. Noah was a preacher of righteousness, 2 Pet.2:5, and the disciples preached the good news; all of them preached the gospel. How do you or could you present the gospel without Jesus and the cross. Disclaimer: we do think you should be using this Jesus and the cross...
Back in episode 2, we discuss the question, "What is the Gospel". In this episode, one year later, we answer the same question. We encourage you to listen to episode 2, as we discuss different scripture and different arguments in each episode.
Continuing through Romans, going through chapter 5. Chapter 5 is one of the most contested chapters in the scripture. Take a listen, and hear our perspective of what Paul is teaching regarding Adam and Christ, and the effects of their acts on all people.
