On tonight’s programme we respond to John Piper’s podcast episode 1166 of Ask Pastor John with the question of ‘Will We Be Finally ‘Saved’ by Faith Alone?’
What is Billy Graham’s legacy? Was he an example of faithfulness to the gospel, or did he compromise with false religion and a false gospel? Was Graham a positive example? What does Leighton Flowers’ defence of Billy Graham reveal about his beliefs? What does it reveal about his criticism of Calvinism? Is Pulpit & Pen a reliable source of information? Is the pope of Rome our brother in Christ? Are Roman Catholics saved? What should we make of the claims that Billy Graham’s death is a prophetic sign?
On tonight’s programme we have been joined by R. Scott Clark to discuss the modern justification controversy and its roots in history. R. Scott Clark has been a minister in the United Reformed Churches in North America since 1998, and he is Professor of Church History and Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California. We discuss some of the roots of the controversy found in the Reformation, Richard Baxter, Norman Shepherd, the New Perspective on Paul, Federal Vision theology, Covenant theology, Covenant Nomism and other related issues.
On the final show of 2017 we are joined by Brandon Lochridge of Full Armor Radio to talk about the top stories of the year.
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?
