Theologians today talk about “participation” in Christ and the need for “catechesis” — but what do these terms actually mean? Dr. Alex Fogleman joins us to talk about how the early church understood discipleship, sacraments, justification, and the nature of the church. We also discuss how modern day Christians can draw on the wisdom of the past to inform the church of the future.

Churches rightly warn against gossip, but also the need to hold people accountable for their sins. Matthew Lee Anderson of Mere Fidelity argues for that certain specific circumstances may permit the use of gossip to protect a vulnerable third party. He draws from the moral and theological tradition of the church to identify specific criteria for the usage of gossip as well as a warning about the dangers of gossip. We also talk about the need for churches to clamp down on gossip and the courage required to challenge a brother face to face.  Show Notes Check out Matt’s podcast: https://merefidelity.com/ Support us on Patreon Website: thatllpreach.io IG: thatllpreachpodcast YouTube Channel

Acts features a lot of events that puzzle our modern ears: flaming tongues, exorcisms, miraculous jailbreaks and sweeping revivals, but a closer inspection reveals the story of God doing extraordinary things through ordinary means. Dr. Robert Cara joins us help shed light on the narrative of Acts as well as give us categories for understanding both the extraordinary and ordinary ways God works through his church. He also helps us understand the relationship between Israel and the church, the authority of the Jerusalem council, and the ways Acts should and should not instruct the church’s modern day mission.  Show Notes Listen to Dr. Cara’s lectures on the RTS Mobile App Get Dr. Cara’s Hebrews Commentary Support us on Patreon Website: thatllpreach.io IG: thatllpreachpodcast YouTube Channel
If you’re thinking through baptism for yourself or your family check out this episode! We get into the controversial debate over the proper subjects of baptism. Dr. Steve Wellum from Southern Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky makes the case that baptism is only for men and women who make a credible profession of faith over and against the theology of Reformers like John Calvin and Martin Luther. We talk about the history and theological significance of baptism as well as the practical importance it holds as a discipleship tool. Reformed Baptists and Presbyterians both appreciate the role of the natural and spiritual family in raising Christians, but differ on the role baptism plays. Both traditions also recognize the significance of covenants as they play out through the Scriptures, but differ on the relationships between those covenants (covenant of grace, Abrahamic covenant, New Covenant etc…). We also discuss common objections to credobaptism or “believers-only” baptism.

There’s a long-standing tensions between the academic disciplines of Systematic theology and Biblical theology. In this episode, Derek Rishmawy from the Mere Fidelity podcast joins us to try to bridge the gap by appreciating the insights of both. We talk about the role and importance of systematics not only in giving us conceptual clarity, but also in ministering to our souls. As a campus minister, Derek regularly draws upon his systematic training to apply the gospel to Gen Z students crippled with anxiety, doubt, and questions about identity. We also talk about practical ways pastors can help their congregations grow in their understanding of doctrine and its application to everyday life.

If you’ve noticed a shift in Evangelicalism over the past five years you’re not alone. Aaron Renn, host of the Aaron Renn Show, joins us to talk about his book Life in the Negative World: Confronting Challenges in an Anti-Christian Culture. We talk about the why figures like Jordan Peterson and Jocko Willink draw the attention of many Christian young men struggling to make sense of their lives. We also discuss the shift from “neutral world” in which Christianity serves as one religious option among many to the more hostile “negative world” as well as ways this shift fractured and split the modern conservative Evangelical movement. Finally, we talk about ways Evangelicals can not only adapt to negative world, but also take advantage of new opportunities while navigating the difficult waters of modern politics.

In this episode we discuss a compelling case from the Scriptures and church theologians like John Calvin, Thomas Aquinas, and others about whether taking from the wealthy to feed the poor constitutes theft. We lay out a compelling case that God intends his creation to sustain the basic needs of his creatures. Therefore, every creature made in God’s image possesses rights over basic provisions. We also talk about Paul’s latent communism. Enjoy!

There’s a lot of talk today about the ethics of frozen embryos in light of current events. This controversial subject deserves clear thinking that’s both sensitive to the real situations people encounter and the witness of the Scriptures. Paul and Bryan discuss recent documents from the Roman Catholic church, Donum Vitae and Dignitas Personae which argue against people “adopting” frozen embryos. Paul takes issue with this stance in a stimulating discussion about In Vitro Fertilization, bioethics, and the dignity of life. In short, Paul thinks the Roman Catholic church’s stance is insane.

What Bible did the Apostle Paul grow up reading? This complex question demonstrates the need for understanding the Septuagint, a fancy name for a stream of translations of the Hebrew Bible into Greek. Dr. Greg Lanier joins us to discuss what the Septuagint is and why it matters today. We talk about common misconceptions about the Septuagint as well as issues of textual transmission and translation. We also dive into debates about the apocrypha or “deuterocanonical” books accepted by Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox, but rejected by Protestants. Get ready for a deep dive into history and theology. Enjoy this episode.

Jesus died on the cross for our sins, but that’s not the end of the story. Theologian and pastor Jeremy Treat joins us to talk about all the cross accomplished on our behalf and how that changes the way we communicate the gospel to a post-Christian world. We go through the three main theories of the atonement: Christus Victor, penal substitutionary atonement, and moral example and show how these integrate with one another to redeem all the aspects of our life in a fallen world. Jeremy also shares his own experience as a pastor in Los Angeles with regard to spiritual warfare, the occult, and the impact of the Enlightenment. Enjoy this episode.

Everybody today talks about the polarization of America. We’re caught up in reactivity and this creates an anxiety that seeps into churches today. Where can we turn for wisdom? The Reformed Anglican theologian Richard Hooker. Dr. Brad Littlejohn joins us to talk about how Hooker navigated tensions within the Reformation between Presbyterians and Episcopalians as how this informs our modern day gridlock. We also discuss Hooker’s desire to combine the best of both Protestant theology and Catholic liturgical practices as a means of Reformation. Finally, we talk about the pitfalls of radicalism and hubris in reform movements during times of social change and upheaval.  Show Notes Get Hooker's Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity Vol. 1 in Modern English: https://davenantinstitute.org/hookers-laws-ihttps://davenantinstitute.org/god-is Support us on Patreon Website: thatllpreach.io IG: thatllpreachpodcast YouTube Channel
We naturally understand that the phrase “God is wise” differs from “God is a rock”. One speaks formally about God and the other informally or metaphorically, but what about a less clear phrase like “God is angry?” Ryan Hurd from the Davenant Institute joins us for a provocative conversation about how God possesses zero wrath and why both “God is angry” and “God is a rock” operate as metaphors. Also, Ryan shares how the Incarnation amplifies our understanding of metaphor and draws us closer to the heart of God. We’ve also got a brand new theme song courtesy of our friend Daniel Vincent.

We often think about Classical Christian Education in terms of what it’s against. It’s against public schools, secularism, and bad social influences. But what is a classical Christian education for? Dale Stenberg who hosts the Pilgrim Faith podcast and serves as headmaster of Pietas Classical Christian school join us to talk about the positive vision of a Christian education. We talk about how a classical Christian education molds a student as a whole person, mind, body, and soul, to be a self-learner and a virtuous citizen of society. We talk about the importance of dialogue, narrative, and cultivating our palettes to love the good, true, and beautiful. We also discuss common myths about classical education creating sheltered socially-awkward students or belligerent culture warriors. Join us as we uncover the purpose and joy of education.

The name John Calvin sends a cold chill down the spine of some Christians. The famous Reformer seems cold, detached, and authoritarian due to his teachings on predestination, election, and his role in the execution of the heretic Servetus. But there’s more to Calvin’s story than meets the eye. What if we’ve misunderstood him completely? Dr. Peter Lillback of Westminster Theological Seminary joins us to shed new light on the life and theology of Calvin. This towering figure in church history viewed himself first and foremost as a pastor and preacher concerned with the Eucharist, missions, and even religious liberty. Join us as we get to the heart of the real John Calvin. Show Notes Support us on Patreon Website: thatllpreach.io IG: thatllpreachpodcast YouTube Channel  
How should Christians think about contentment in all situations of life. When times are good there’s a temptation to complacency. When times are difficult we struggle with despair and bitterness. Calvin encourages Christians to meditate on the fragility and temporary nature of life in order to cultivate eternal hope.  Website: thatllpreach.io IG: @thatllpreachpodcast
