Steadfast Media Pick of the Week — Dr. Nagel

February 7th, 2014 No comments

Sorry you have to wade through some God Whisper inanity ;-), but jump to the 39:50 mark to listen to a sermon on James 2 by Dr. Nagel. … it’s all works and faith has nothing to do with it is contradicted by it’s all faith and works have nothing to do with it.

Hilariously Heretical In this episode of Boars in the Vineyard Pastors Polzin and Price play “Meology vs. Theology.” Pr. Price “preaches” one of the funniest parody’s of a mega-church sermon I’ve ever heard. Sadly, part of the humor is that you can imagine someone actually preaching it.

Steadfast Media Pick of the Week — Eschatology

November 28th, 2013 No comments

Eschatology This week’s pick is from an episode from The Count it All Joy Show where Pr. Eric Brown and Thomas Lemke walk through 12 expectations for the end times that are talked about in Scripture. Obviously they don’t dive too deeply, but they touch on a lot of points that debunk the common American understanding of the end times.
