O Holy Night

12/10/2017
More
How do the angelic announcements of Mary’s conception and of the birth of Christ relate to the Old Testament promises concerning the coming messiah, and what do they reveal about Christ’s forthcoming mission and work? On this program, the hosts are continuing their series on The Meaning of Christmas by taking a closer look at the Annunciation.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

12/3/2017
More
The famous Christmas hymn “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” reminds us each year of the deep longing and hopeful expectation for the fulfillment of all the messianic promises revealed throughout the history of the Old Testament. This Emmanuel, or “God with us,” would come in the fullness of time to “ransom captive Israel.” On this program the hosts will take a look at the theology of this classic hymn as they begin a new series on The Meaning of Christmas.

The Worship Service

11/26/2017
More
What should a properly-ordered church service look like? In worship, are Christians actors or spectators? Do we come to church in order to give God something, or to receive something from God? On this program, the hosts are wrapping up their series on worship as they take a look at the subject of “liturgy.” Though many Christians in our day may not even be familiar with this word, it simply refers to the structure and form of worship. In other words, like theology, everyone has a liturgy;...

Body & Soul

11/19/2017
More
If you poll a number of Americans on the topic of religion, you’re likely to hear many of them say that though they don’t identify with “organized religion,” they do consider themselves to be “spiritual, but not religious.” But why is this individualistic, private, and unaccountable version of spirituality attractive in our day? On this program, the hosts will be contrasting contemporary versions of spirituality, both inside and outside the church, with the beliefs and practices of...

An Interview with James K.A. Smith

11/12/2017
More
Are we shaped by the theology of Scripture and the patterns of Christian worship, or by the ideas of our increasingly secular culture and the patterns, habits, and routines associated with it? While many Christians in our day seem to understand the importance of acquiring a biblical worldview, James K.A. Smith argues that we often overlook the fact that more often than not we’re persuaded by alternative stories of the world, not through overt argumentation, but by what he calls “secular...

Worship According to Scripture

11/5/2017
More
Many Christians today assume that worship is something we do one hour per week, but in Scripture, worship is actually a life-long activity. For example, in Romans 12 Paul says that out of gratitude for God’s mercy and grace, Christians are to worship God acceptably by offering our bodies as living sacrifices. This is not to say that Sunday worship is unimportant. Though we’re to think of all of life as worship, we have an additional call to join with other saints on the Lord’s Day, to sing...

The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

10/29/2017
More
This week marks the 500th anniversary of Luther’s nailing of the Ninety-Five Theses. But who was Luther and what were the problems in the church of his day that he was seeking to address? On this program, the hosts will read and discuss excerpts from the Ninety-Five Theses and will also interact with Luther’s account of his own conversion to a theology rooted in the work of Christ alone, received through faith alone, all by grace alone, to the glory of God alone.

Christianity & Evangelicalism

10/22/2017
More
Though evangelicals and liberals are often at each other’s throats in the culture wars, this division is best understood as a kind of sibling rivalry. Whereas liberals focus on creating our best society now, evangelicals focus on having your best life now. But either way, the focus is on us, here and now, rather than on God and his story of redemption which culminated in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Christianity & Liberalism

10/15/2017
More
On this program, the hosts continue their discussion begun last week on the influence of the Radical Reformation. How did the theology of the Anabaptist and Pietist movements end up influencing so many forms of Protestantism, both here in America and around the world? And more specifically, how did these views shape the founders of the Enlightenment and help create what we know today as Protestant Liberalism?

The Radical Reformation

10/8/2017
More
According to a recent Pew study, 53% of American Protestants couldn’t identify Martin Luther as the one who started the Reformation, and fewer than 30% of white Evangelicals were unable to identify Protestantism as the faith which embraces the doctrine of justification by faith alone. On this program, the hosts will attempt to show that contemporary Christians, whether liberal or conservative, have more in common with the theology of the Anabaptist reformers than they do with the views of...

Glory to God Alone

10/1/2017
More
As we have seen over the past few weeks, Scripture alone reveals that our redemption was accomplished by the work of Christ alone, and is received by grace through faith alone. In short, God gets all the credit for our salvation from start to finish. As Paul says in Rom 11:35-36, “Who has given him a gift that he might be repaid? For of him and through him and to him are all things, to whom be the glory forever.” On this program, the hosts conclude their discussion of the solas of the...

Justification by Faith Alone

9/24/2017
More
Once upon a time, Protestants of every variety were identified as those who were committed to the doctrine of “justification through faith alone.” In our day, however, most Protestants are not even familiar with this doctrine. With either stern rigor or happy tips for better living, conservatives and progressives alike end up smothering the gospel through constant exhortations to either personal or social transformation. In either case, the focus has shifted away from God’s story of...

Grace Alone

9/17/2017
More
In the medieval church, sin was viewed as a kind of sickness that could be remedied if we reached out to take the medicine. But the Protestant Reformers sought to recover the clear teaching of Scripture that salvation “depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy” (Rom. 9:16). So what do contemporary Protestants think about the extent of man’s fall, and the role of God’s grace in salvation? The hosts also discuss the biblical word “predestination” as it relates to this...

Christ Alone

9/12/2017
More
Many Christians in our day, whether liberal or evangelical, declare that there is hope of eternal life apart from explicit faith in Jesus Christ. In fact, according to one survey by George Barna, 35% of America’s evangelical seminary students agreed with the statement, “God will save all good people when they die, regardless of whether they’ve trusted in Christ.” On this program the hosts will discuss our need to recover the clear theology of a text such as John 14:6 in which Jesus says,...
