In this episode, the guys talk about evangelicalism. Where did it come from? What produced it? What kind of effect has evangelical culture had on Christians? If you feel as though you’re drowning–if you are struggling and disenchanted–you are not crazy. And you are not alone.
In this episode, the guys talk about a passage of Scripture that is often misunderstood: 2 Peter 1:1-12. Is Peter teaching pietism in this text? We consider the gospel, as well as the saint/sinner reality, and how those things relate to our pursuit of piety.
In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and the protests of recent days, the guys talk about racism, injustice, and the church. There are many people in a lot of pain. What can we say to these things from God’s Word? How can the church navigate these difficult issues?
In this episode, the guys talk about biblical counseling and the problem of pietism and hyper-introspection. We consider a confessional, Christ-centered approach to counseling that is grounded in the local church.
In this episode, the guys talk about triumphalism. The impression we’re often given in the church is that we should be always and consistently improving. We should be living “the victorious Christian life.” And, if we’re not, we should be concerned. What do we make of all this?
In this episode, the guys consider the distinction between the law and the gospel. God has revealed the law and the gospel in Scripture. They aren’t the same thing, but yet, they are often confused. This confusion results in all kinds of fallout, including robbing the believer of assurance and peace.
“Christ-centered preaching” has been a popular topic for a number of years. But what is it? What does it mean to preach Christ from all of Scripture? If we preach this way, are we just saying the same thing every Sunday? The guys consider all of this–and more–in today’s episode.
