Can you preach the Gospel to yourself? That’s the question Peter and Kevin discuss today. It might sound like a minor question, but it has major implications.
How did we get the Bible? How do we know what we have is God’s Word? How do we know we can trust what we have? That’s the topic of discussion on today’s podcast.
We know we can’t influence our own salvation. That’s entirely up to God. But can we influence someone else’s? Can we be so winsome that they convert, or such a jerk that they reject the faith entirely? That’s the question Peter and Kevin tackle this episode!
We always get it backwards. We take a word we know, and when the Bible uses that same word to describe God, we think we know what it means. But what if that isn’t how it works at all? What if that approach sends you on a wild goose chase straight in to idolatry?
How can we say that you can be assured of your salvation while at the same time saying that you can lose your salvation? This is a contradiction. How do we resolve it?
There are many ways to talk about baptism. Some good, some bad and some downright awkward. And then there are the times we speak of baptism in a way that not even Scripture speaks.
How does one begin explaining the Trinity? And where do we look in Scripture to see it? By now, it shouldn’t be any surprise that Peter and Kevin are going to start with Jesus!
Forgiving someone is hard. It’s even harder when that person refuses to repent of their sin against you…or to even admit that they sinned at all! What is a Christian do do when this happens? Peter and Kevin talk through where the rubber hits the road in applying Law and Gospel to this situation.
One thing you’ll hear Lutherans talk about a lot: rightly distinguishing Law and Gospel. But what does this mean and why does it matter? Is it really that big a deal? Um…yes! It’s actually a matter of life and death!
New Lutherans go through some difficult phases coming from American Evangelicalism. The first phase is accepting that this is more than a mere symbol. The second phase is figuring out how to tell their families they can no longer commune together. The joy of being united under their new confession is tempered by the division it has caused in their family.
