On today’s show Paul critiques a sermon by John MacArthur on the Sabbath Day. Is the Sabbath Day for today? What is the moral law? How is it different to the ceremonial law of the Old Testament? How important is this issue to the Church?
What is ‘Replacement Theology’ according to Dispensationalists? Is the label accurate or a vitriolic slur aimed against Covenant Theology? Does Covenant Theology really claim that the Church ‘replaces’ Israel? This show includes a critique of the views of Dr Michael L. Brown on this issue.
What are the differences between Dispensationalism and Covenantalism? Which system of interpreting the scriptures is right (if any)? What are the consequences of being wrong in this area for the Church?
Is it possible to know who the true Antichrist is from the Bible or can we only speculate on who the man of sin is? What has been the consistent testimony from the early church to about 200 years ago? Is the Pope of Rome that man of sin and son of perdition, or is it some man to come in the future?
“There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God.”
-The Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 25:6
Paul talks about the new ‘Left Behind’ film and examines the claims that the Pre-tribulation Rapture can be found in the scriptures. What is the influence of the secret rapture theology on the church? Are dispenationalism and futurism biblical?
