Episode 83: Augsburg Confession (article 27)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Monastic vows.  Poverty, chastity, obedience.  Not to mention a funny haircut.  We’re talking about medieval monasticism and the Reformation’s critique of it.  Also a discussion over a listener call regarding what to do when you don’t feel the joy of your salvation.  And of course, a little bacon, in celebration of Bacon Mondays in Lent.

The distinction of meats is on the table.  Foods, actually We’re talking fish on Friday, bacon on Monday, and whatever other prescribed fasts may be going on.  Can they make us holy before God?  Does God even care?  Why make a distinction of foods at all?  We’re talking, and we hope you’re listening.  The bump music is dedicated to Manly Dr. Cwirla.  Let the listener understand.
