Episode 87: Law and Gospel (part 3)



After a detour on some email, Armenian delis, incense allergies, and giving to the poor, we finally get back on track with Walther’s thesis #2 on the Law and the Gospel and how being “biblical” isn’t enough.  Check it out.

  2. I have not the chance to listen as yet. I sure hope this one is not bacon free!

    Just wondered – a comment which I believe I heard in a previous episode was that “Christ died for our sins” could be taken as Law by the non-believer – I think Rev Cwirla mentioned it in conjunction with his statement that it was impossible to go through the bible and hilight the law passages versus the gospel passages.

    I just wondered how this position differed from this:

    “We believe that any passage, whether indicative or imperative, can be heard by the faithful as good news, and that any passage, whether containing gospel promises or not, will be heard by the rebellious as intolerable demand. The fundamental division is not in the text, but rather in the human heart.”

    This is from the FV proponents in the Reformed world (they precede this with “We deny that law and gospel should be considered as hermeneutics, or treated as such.” which I presume you would reject)
