#295 Is God Finished with Israel? Responding to Brannon Howse, Andy Woods and David Cloud

Amidst the recent news about Donald Trump and Israel’s capital Jerusalem, we look at views relating to modern day Israel shared among modern Christians. What is the historic Reformed view? Does it ignore ethnic and national Israel, as many claim, or does it actually support a future conversion of the Jews? On tonight’s programme we look at the views of David Cloud, Brannon Howse and Andy Woods and see if they are fair in their representations of Reformed Theology.

#282 Desiring God’s Works Salvation and Racist Identity Politics with Lecrae

On tonight’s programme we look at the mounting evidence against John Piper and Desiring God with the recently published article by desiringGod.org writer Greg Morse, which declares: “But what about being saved by faith alone? You’re not.” When it was posted on twitter it included the note: “You’re not saved through faith alone. Be killing your sin.” We also look at Lecrae and Piper’s Racial Identity Politics. Does it divide the Church?

#281 John Piper’s Corruption of the Gospel

In a recent article John Piper stated: “we should not speak of getting to heaven by faith alone in the same way we are justified by faith alone.” Has he compromised the gospel? Is it similar to the errors of Norman Shepherd? What did godly Reformed men of the past say on the error taught by Shepherd, and what should be the message to Piper and others like him today? What are the consequences of the Reformed community ignoring modern errors on justification by faith alone?
