115 Don’t Put It on a Cart (Victor Gluckin)

Have you ever read about the time Uzzah touched the ark and God struck him down? When’s the last time you heard a sermon preached on this text? Anytime I’ve reflected on this passage, I’m so focused on trying to explain how God could be just in carrying out this judgment that I’ve missed the[…]

Interview 17: Will All Israel Be Saved? (Matthew Elton)

How does salvation work?  Is Israel still God’s chosen people or are they on the same footing as everyone else now that the Messiah has come?  In Off Script episode 17, Is Jesus the Only Way to God?, Brian wrote in, inquiring if a Torah-observant Jew could be saved even if he or she didn’t[…]

Podcast 70: Getting the Gospel Right (Sean Finnegan)

The gospel is the message we believe in that results in immortality (2 Tim 1.7-10).  If I were the devil, I would target the gospel message so that even if some Christians rustled up the courage to actually share it with others, they’d have a distorted or partial message.  In fact, scripture tells us that[…]

Interview 12: Jacob Rohrer on the Gospel (Jacob Rohrer)

Off Script 17: Is Jesus the Only Way to God?

With this episode we are beginning a series on overcoming objections to Christianity.  To start with we want to address the criticism often leveled at bible-believing Christians today that our perspective on salvation is too narrow-minded and exclusive.  Who are we to say that all the other religions are wrong?  In order to tackle this[…]

Podcast 48: The Courage of Esther (Sean Finnegan)

Have you heard about Esther’s courage?  She had the audacity to stand for God in an incredibly dark time.  Though the Persian Empire had decreed the genocide of her people, she could have easily remained in the closet about her ethnicity and enjoyed the comforts of the palace.  Nonetheless, she would not stand idly by,[…]

Great Discussions on the Atonement

I’m working on a paper for the upcoming Theological Conference on Atonement and I re-listened to Dale Tuggy’s interview with Joshua Thurlow in his Trinities podcast.  Thurow’s “Communal Substitutionary Atonement” theory fascinates me.  If you’ve ever puzzled over the question, “Why did Jesus have to die?” or “What did Jesus’ death accomplish?” then give these[…]

Podcast 20: Shocking Youth Message (Paul Washer)

by Paul Washer In this convicting sermon Paul Washer exposes the unholiness that pervades much of Christian youth culture.  Although I do not agree with much of what Washer stands for, this message of his significantly affected my life.  It not only inspired me to live for God wholeheartedly, but also exposed the sneaky ways[…]

Podcast 18: Eternal Security: Steve Gregg vs. Tom Morris

Steve Gregg vs. Tom Morris Once you become saved can you lose your salvation?  Listen to this debate to hear both sides of this important question.  Admittedly, the debate does seem to be a bit of a mismatch, since Gregg is extremely well prepared and Morris could not answer many of Gregg’s points.  Even so,[…]

The Forgotten Gospel

Here’s a documentary I contributed to by Restoration Fellowship some years ago about the shocking lack of knowledge about the kingdom of God in mainstream Christian evangelism and teaching.  Although some evangelical leaders have made great progress in understanding the kingdom message, the average church-goer remains attached to the old heaven-at-death mythology.
