A weekly discussion of theology from a Lutheran perspective.
196 Episodes
Today's program is a discussion of Holy Absolution in the theology of Martin Luther. Specifically I looked at his treatise The Babylonian Captivity of the Church.
This is the second talk from Rev. Dr. Eric Phillips on the subject of the third use of the law. In this talk, he focuses on preaching. 
On today's program, I discussed the idea of Holy Absolution. I addressed the definition of a sacrament and asked whether Absolution qualified as a third sacrament along with Baptism and the Lord's Supper. I then gave a Biblical defense of this practice from Matthew 16, Matthew 18, and John 20.

Q&A Podcast June 2019


Today's podcast was another Q&A program. I discussed a number of topics, including: the Eucharistic sacrifice, the use of the term "priest," views of the church fathers, and systematic theology textbooks.
On today's podcast, I played a talk from Rev. Dr. Eric Phillips on the three uses of the law. The talk focuses on the third use and some of the contemporary debates on the subject within Lutheranism. Wherever you stand on these debates, his talk is definitely one worth listening to!
On today's program, I spent time discussing the nature of theological education, and I also offered some advice for those who are seminarians or PhD students.
On this program, I discussed the writings of St. Ambrose in which he talks about justification. This is a continuation of my Sola Fide in the church fathers series.  
This podcast is a Q&A program. I answered the following questions: Who are the Nephilim? What is your view of Christians and secular entertainment? If you weren't Lutheran, what church would you go to? Did Jesus found the Roman Catholic Church? Why is Lutheranism unknown? What is your view of the perpetual virginity of Mary?
This is a talk I gave on the topic of Holy Scripture at the Hold the Line Conference at Trinity Lutheran Church in West Hempstead NY. In it, I discuss the authority of Scripture, as well as the nature of Scripture and the sufficiency of Scripture.
On today's program, I discuss the doctrine of justification by faith alone as taught in the Lutheran tradition and its relation to the teachings of the early church. I argue that there is some precedent for such a teaching in some of the earliest Christian writings. Along with this, I spent a long time talking about how to read and use the fathers honestly and fruitfully.
