Today we Begin A Series Of Episodes Dedicated To The Pacifist Writings Of The Early Church, beginning with the Most Oft-Quoted Of The Early Church Fathers, Tertullian Of Carthage.

Join the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network Biography Tertullian (Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus) (155-240 AD) was a prolific early Christian author from Carthage in the Roman province of Africa. Of Berber origin, he was the first Christian author to produce an extensive corpus of Latin Christian literature. He also was an early Christian apologist and a polemicist against heresy, including contemporary Christian Gnosticism. Tertullian has been called "the father of Latin Christianity" and "the founder of Western theology." Though conservative in his worldview, Tertullian originated new theological concepts and advanced the development of early Church doctrine. He is perhaps most famous for being the first writer in Latin known to use the term trinity (Latin: trinitas). According to The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, "Tertullian's trinity not a triune God, but rather a triad or group of three, with God as the founding member"...Influenced by Stoic philosophy, the "substance" of Tertullian, however, was a material substance that did not refer to a single God, but to the sharing of a portion of the substance of the Father (the only being who was fully God) with the Son and, through the Son, with the Holy Spirit. He wrote his understanding of the three members of the trinity after becoming a Montanist. Unlike many Church fathers, Tertullian was never recognized as a saint by the Eastern or Western catholic tradition churches. Several of his teachings on issues such as the clear subordination of the Son and Spirit to the Father, and his condemnation of remarriage for widows and of fleeing from persecution, contradicted the doctrines of these traditions.

Pastoral Pontifications Pastor Bennett answers a listener email about the nature of the Ten Commandments and how we, as Lutherans consider them. Commentary: The 8th Commandment and the term "Anti-Gun" When Lloyd shared episode 163 on a Christian Facebook group couple weeks ago, it drew the ire of another Christian who accused him of violating the eighth Commandment by referring to "anti-gun Christians." Is it a violation of the Eighth Commandment to call all Christians who support gun control "anti-gun?" Lloyd addresses the question in today's rant.

The doctrine of the lesser magistrates declares that when the superior or higher civil authority makes an unjust/immoral law or decree, the lesser or lower ranking civil authority has both the right and duty to refuse obedience to that superior authority.

Join the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network Clinging to God and Guns Luther wrote in March 1530 that no christian should set himself against the government even if the government acts unjustly. A Christian ought to suffer injustice and rather than resist because even if the government is tyrannical, that in no way removes our obligation as citizens to be obedient. But six months later, in his letter "A Warning to His Dear German People," [LW 47, 11-55] Luther’s view on this subject changed as the threat of military action by the Holy Roman Emperor loomed on the horizon. In 1545, just months after Luther's death, Emperor Charles V prepares for war against the Lutherans, who launch an ill-fated pre-emptive strike. Before long, the Lutheran princes are in submission, dead, or in prison and the Augsburg Interim re-imposes Roman worship on the German people. As the armies of the Emperor close in on the City of Magdeburg, the pastors there write the Magdeburg Confession, expanding on Luther's 1530 letter and laying out the Biblical case for armed resistance to tyranny -- the Lesser Magistrates Doctrine. 500 years later in the United States we see lesser magistrates refusing to uphold or enforce laws from gun control to immigration enforcement. Links of Interest The Magdeburg Confession: 13th of April 1550 AD Tyranny and Resistance: The Magdeburg Confession and the Lutheran Tradition Luther's Works, Volume 47: Christian in Society IV Devotion for the Week The people of Israel contended with the Lord in the wilderness (Ex. 17:1–7). They were dissatisfied with His provision. In the same way, the first laborers in the vineyard complained against the landowner for the wage he provided them (Matt. 20:1–16). They charged him with being unfair, but in reality he was being generous. For the Lord does not wish to deal with us on the basis of what we deserve but on the basis of His abounding grace in Christ. The first—those who rely on their own merits—will be last. “For they were overthrown in the wilderness” (1 Cor. 10:5). But the last, those who rely on Christ, will be first. For Christ is the Rock (1 Cor. 9:24–10:5). He is the One who was struck and from whose side blood and water flowed that we may be cleansed of our sin.

Episode 148 - The Best of 2016
In this weeks show we look back at some of the best moments from 2016. We have a Ballistic Minute from episode 12, former contributor Aaron Israel from episode 47, Mia's first segment from episode 29, and our interview with Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller from episode 17. THIS EPISODE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY COOK'S HOLSTERS. AMERICAN MADE CUSTOM HOLSTERS WITH A 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. Save 15% when you use promo code "armedpodcast" at checkout. www.CooksHolsters.com Special Guest: Pr. Bryan Wolfmueller Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller of Hope Lutheran Church in Aurora, Colorado and co-host of Table Talk Radio is our special guest. Pr. Wolfmueller explains the medieval doctrine of the three estates, and how Martin Luther's interpretation of it was the key political insight of his career. The original idea was that there were three "orders" in life: those who worked, those who prayed, and those who fought. The home, the church, and the state. To be a part of one meant you could not be a part of the others. Luther recognized that, unlike the early Church fathers and medieval theologians, the three estates actually overlap and people are a part of multiple "orders." Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill Sgt. Bill talks about trigger control in this week's Ballistic Minute. He boils three techniques, their advantages and disadvantages: the slow press or “surprise” break, prep and press, and fast full press.
