Episode 35 – Ezekiel 8:1-9:2

Back into Ezekiel, we discussed the nature of the syncretistic worship being practiced by the Israelites at the temple in Ezekiel’s day.  For the Inquisition, Pastor was asked about the Oklahoma State Legislature’s discussion on turning marriage over to churches and ceasing civil weddings, or something.  Thomas talked about his position in the hubbub surrounding Tullian Tchividjian, whom some Lutherans have seemed to brand, “I can’t believe it’s not Lutheran!”, and what he feels are the Lutheran distinctives in our centuries-old conversation with the Reformed: the Sacraments.

Episode 32 – Ezekiel 5:11-17

Back at it again, in this episode we finish out Ezekiel chapter 5!

Then, in the Inquisition,  Thomas first named the top 3 apologists of the 20th/21st centuries he could off the top of his head, and then Pastor discussed baptism, including such elements as why some (Reformed, Baptist, and Reformed Baptist) folks get mad when the (Church of Christ) Duck Dynasty crew believes that baptism is necessary for salvation, and why he Baptized his newborn son immediately after the birth.

Then we discussed how Pastors and apologists have similar job descriptions; i.e. “killing and making alive” with law and Gospel, and how a Pastor does this with believing parishioners and the apologist with the unbelieving folks.
