Episode 102: Law and Gospel (part 16)

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

What does it mean to be a “true believer?”  Can a “true” Christian sin intentionally or be captive to ruling or habitual sins?  The God Whisperers take some issue with old CFW Walther in Thesis 18 where he seems to state that true believers are not captive to “ruling sins” or sin intentionally.  Also some thoughts on contemporary music in worship, youth ministry, and more of the friendly banter you’ve come to know as The God Whisperers.

Episode 100: The Best of GW – Special Edition

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Rejoice with us!  It was lost but now it’s found.  Put on the BBQ, pop the corks, it’s time for a little GW frivolity mixed with Lutheran theology in a best of God Whisperers commemorative episode.  Relive those great moments like Home Schooler Alert, Space Robot Spiritual, Mo’s Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar, and other highlights of our first 99 episodes.  We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed putting this together.

Thanks to all our listeners for their support and feedback.  Special thanks to Brian Yamabe, who compiled these excerpts and Chris Loemker, who produced the “Jesus is a Friend of Mine” organ cover.  Let’s party!

More solid gold – internet special edition 2

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The 100th episode anniversary gold keeps on coming, thanks to our good friend Brian Yamabe, who excerpted and compiled these clips.  There is some great third microphone sound with Michael “Internet Monk” Spencer (1956-2010) who died in the Lord earlier this year.  This one’s for you, our dear Baptist friend.

We’re still searching for the missing Episode 100.  Rumor has it that it may turn up on Monday, just in time for PCR airing.  Stay tuned.

Solid Gold – special internet edition

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

As we await the much anticipated Episode 100 anniversary edition, here is some 24 karat God Whisperers solid gold, thanks to Brian Yamabe, who gleaned and compiled these segments.  Props to Chris Loemker, organist extraordinaire, who produced the Jesus is a Friend of Mine cover.

There is actual content here, for all you theological wonks!

Missing God Whisperers Episode

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

As many of our listeners noticed, well three of them, there is no Episode 100 in the queue.  Why is this?  We’re so glad you asked.  It turns out that episode 100 is the much anticipated Solid Gold edition featuring excerpts of some of our favorite episodes such as Reed Lessing’s Home Schooler Alert, Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar, and other delights.  Unfortunately, at the time of publishing, episode 100 was still in the editing room, ie Cwirla’s computer, awaiting his return from two weeks of sleep-deprivation at Higher Things conferences.

Stay tuned for further updates on the missing Episode 100.  We promise it will be worth the wait, or your money back.

Episode 101: Special Luau Edition

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

We’re back in Craig’s backyard for a special luau edition of the God Whisperers.  In addition to Mai Tais and other delights, we’re offering up some free range conversation at our third microphone along with some Law / Gospel distinctions in the way of Walther’s thesis 17.  So pour yourself a mai tai, get into the aloha spirit, and tune in to another scintillating episode.
