SERMON: Ahaz at the Crossroads

February 23rd, 2020

Sermon from Isaiah 7

Did Jesus Falsely Predict His Second Coming?

February 5th, 2020

Matthew 24:34 reads, "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place." (NASB) 

 

For many skeptics this shows that Jesus is a false prophet. Why? Well because they think that Jesus is predicting his second coming at the end of time within the 40 years of those listening to his sermon. But is that the only, or even best understanding of the passage? Or should we understand Jesus' sermon differently?

Calvinist Musings - Part 2

January 29th, 2020

In this episode I continue my previous episode with some musings on various issues related to Reformed Soteriology. In this episode I discuss a Warranted Case from the Bible for someone to affirm Reformed / Calvinistic Compatibilism (that we are both determined and free) as well as addressing the objection that Calvinism in someway makes God the "author if sin."

Freedway Thinker #19 - Who Wins - The Bible vs Science?

January 22nd, 2020

In this episode I go on a little bit of a rant about when well meaning Christians say things like, "When the Bible and reason/science disagree... who wins!?" and intend you to feel bad if you side with science. This is a bad kind of argument for Christians to make and I hope my comments help show why.

The Good, The Bad, and The Unrighteous

January 7th, 2020

In this Freedway Thinker edition of the podcast, I discuss 3 different concepts that we need to be able to conceptually disambiguate if we are to have fruitful Biblical understanding of them. These concepts are:

1. Clean and Unclean (Pure/Impure)

2. Righteous and Unrighteous

3. Moral and Immoral

Hope this show helps clarify these concepts for some of you.

Various Calvinist Musings

November 20th, 2019

In this episode I give various Calvinistic musings, ranging from why Inspiration and basic Christian orthodoxy are good arguments for a kind of Calvinistic Compatiblism/Soft Determinism, thoughts on why discussions about sovereignty often fail before they get started, and if Calvinists can "know" that they are elect.
