Atheists Read the Bible I happened on The Inquisitive Atheists while looking for something completely different and curiosity got the better of me. They have some episodes where they read through the Bible. They make two major mistakes in that they star reading from Genesis and they have no idea what the Bible is about. In their episode on Genesis 1 – 20, they really show off their biases regarding creation/evolution and most sadly, when they skim over the Fall, they completely miss the promise of the Savior. Maybe someone with more time and talent could help them More…

The Good Samaritan
I thought the study of “The Good Samaritan” with Dr. Lane Burgland this week was interesting. I’ve also added some other studies on this parable.

Lutheran Fathers Some Lutheran Satire for a warm summer day. I laugh at the Pr. Fisk reference every time.
Youth Ministry The White Horse Inn has been doing a series on youth ministry and while it has been good in general, the most recent episode had one of the most jarring moments in a podcast I have experienced and not in a good way. T. David Gordon was talking about having a discussion with your children about the serious nature of the demands Christ makes and whether they are willing to make this decision or not. Then Mike Horton tells a story about a similar discussion with his sons when they were considering making their “profession of More…
30 Minute Church A couple of weeks ago there was an article in the Chicago Tribune about Trinity Memorial Lutheran Church offering a 30-minute church service. This week I found two podcasts with different takes on the service. There aren’t any “sides” represented, just different levels of concern. What struck me was how personal relationships and trust influenced how the service was viewed. There is probably a lesson we should be learning related to the SMP program and even The Koinonia Project. http://traffic.libsyn.com/lutherandifference/episode_356.mp3 Radical Grace Radio relevant discussion begins about 11:15 https://boarsinthevineyard.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/episode-027.mp3 Boars in the Vineyard relevant discussion More…

Lutheran Satire – Things Your Lutheran Pastor Totally Loves: Being Mistaken for the ELCA I can’t believe this is three years old. It still holds up and the comment thread is interesting. I know it’s a YouTube comment thread (which can get worse than the ones around here ;-), but browse it if you have some time.
Name That Worldview This is a little lighter segment of Issues, Etc. which may have paved the way for Table Talk Radio. It’s a game called “Name That Worldview.” Songs from Peter, Paul and Mary, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, and R.E.M. are played and it is up to callers to determine what worldview the song is espousing. http://www.wittenbergmedia.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Name_That_Worldview.mp3 Original Air Date: August 24, 2005
