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.
On tonight’s programme we respond to the Charismatic arguments of Adam Mabry, a Desiring God writer who pastors in the Boston area. How is Charismatic Theology at odds with virtually all of the Christian Church’s witness and history, bar the last 100 years?
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?
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?
Recently Crux, a Roman Catholic website, interviewed both Rick Warren and Roman Catholic Bishop Kevin Vann of Orange County, California. What did the interview reveal? Should we be concerned over Rick Warren? Do respected pastors see him as a faithful preacher of the Word of God? We also take a brief look at the ‘Reforming Catholic Confession’ which was signed by over 250 professing Protestant leaders. What does the document, and the men involved, tell us about how the Reformation is viewed some 500 years later?
