Episode 79: Augsburg Confession (article 24)

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

The sacrifice of the Mass.  Is the Lord’s Supper primarily God to us or us to God?  That is the question.  We’re talking the proper distinction of sacrament and sacrifice and the difference between propitiatory and eucharistic sacrifices – in other words, sacrifices of sin and sacrifices of thanksgiving.  This was an important issue at the time of the reformation, and it still is today.

Episode 78: Augsburg Confession (article 23)

Monday, January 18th, 2010

The Manly Doctors of Theology return with a scintillating episode on the topic of priestly celibacy from article 23 of the Augsburg Confession.  And, of course, there is the usual banter to start the new year as only the God Whisperers can.  When the topic turns to sex, or the absence thereof, you can be sure there will be something outrageous.  Have a listen.

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Manly Dr. Craig Donofrio continues to be down for the count, having been felled by the flu bug, reducing him to a whispering God Whisperer at the moment. Manly Dr. Cwirla, with his superior diet and exercise regimin, not to mention a robust immune system, continues in good health, at least physically speaking.

God willing and the creek don’t rise, we will return next week at our usual time.  Stay tuned.

Happy New Year!
