This episode of The Bible Study is on 1 Corinthians 6:1-11 and was recommend by Dr. Noland. It walks through the difficult topic of lawsuits between Christians with the ultimate goal being, “not to be selfish and serving only ourselves, but to defend one another and to serve on another in love.”
Videos from the 2014 Symposia conference have been posted at the CTS Media site. Here’s a presentation from the always thought-provoking Dr. David Scaer entitled “Lutheran Distinctives as Theological Substitutes.” http://media.ctsfw.edu.s3.amazonaws.com/symposia/2014/symp2014-9.mp4

This is an extensive are far ranging interview with Dr. Zimmerman on the events that lead up to the walk-out. A number of very interesting calls were taken in the midst of the interview in particular a lady at the 42 minute mark who talks about how the “Battle for the Bible” played out in her own life. http://wittenbergmedia.org/audio/The_Battle_for_the_Bible_in_the_LCMS_-_Zimmerman.mp3 Original Air Date: February 7, 2007
Pr. Weedon was on Issues, Etc. answering the question, “Why be a Lutheran?” The interview was based on his recent presentation, “Why you should stay Lutheran: It’s all about conscience”
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. Neither James nor Paul says either of these. Nor do they do fractions to a compromise. Well, part faith, part works. No, it’s all Jesus. http://godwhisperers.org/audio/god-whisperers-251.mp3

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas to all, because the Incarnation is for the whole world; no matter how you celebrate it
Baptism I’m in conversation with a gentleman who is visiting our church and has a Baptist background. This series on baptism with Dr. Andrew Das will be helpful in the discussion. Baptism & Salvation Infant Baptism Modes of Baptism
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.
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.
