Featured Episode: Legalism
- In this episode we look at the importance of the Trinity to Christianity and why this doctrine is fundamental to our understanding of the gospel. We touch on some church history (the Nicene creed and early church fathers) then look at two errant teachings of the Trinity: modalism and eternal subordination of the Son.
- Should Christians tithe? Why or why not? We explore the biblical proofs for tithing and how different groups of Christians interpret it, including how Josh and Phy have viewed giving from their days as college students to today. Further reading in blog show notes.
- Have you ever wondered why Christians fast? We have a rich collection of examples in the bible and church history, but we don't always discuss why they were fasting in the first place! Learn the reasons to fast and how to do so in this short episode. Show notes on the blog.
- How did Jesus accomplish salvation on the cross? What was the purpose? Scholars have attempted to answer these and other questions about the power of atonement over the course of church history, and we're looking at a few of their conclusions in this episode. We cover ransom, Christus Victor, satisfaction, government, penal substitution, scapegoat, and moral influence theories. Sources on the blog!
- In this quick question and answer episode Phy chats through Sabbath, sharing the gospel with kids, prayer at mealtimes, women pastors and Marvel movie marathons.
