What is the doctrine of Sola Scriptura? What was the authority in the Garden of Eden? Why did written revelation become necessary in God’s economy? Why should we no longer expect oral revelation from God as the infant Church in the wilderness once did? On tonight’s programme we look at comments made by Francis Turretin, a 17th century reformer, on the issue of written revelation from God versus that of oral revelation. Can they help us understand this issue better? Are Charismatic claims of ‘prophetic words’ from men like Michael Brown consistent and compatible with sola scriptura?
Does 1 Corinthians 14 support Charismatic theology? Are tongues a heavenly language that no one around can understand? Or does it teach something else entirely?
On tonight’s programme we review Michael Brown’s latest book which claims to be ‘a wake-up call to the Pentecostal-Charismatic Church’. Is it? How orthodox was ‘the Brownville Revival’? Who is Randy Clark, who endorsed and wrote the foreword for the book? Who was Smith Wigglesworth? Brown speaks highly of him as a great example to follow from Pentecostal church history. What is to blame for the error within the movement? Charismatic theology itself, or a poor understanding of the gifts the movement claims are still in operation?
New Lighthouse House Trails author Bob Kirkland claims C.H. Spurgeon was not a Calvinist. Why does he think this? What was so controversial about Spurgeon’s preaching?
On tonight’s programme we respond to Paul Tripp’s article ‘My Confession: Towards A More Balanced Gospel”. What is social justice? Where does it come from? What is the effect of this teaching on the Church?
