This episode is dedicated to our listeners who think we spend too much time kibitzing on the front end of the show. The is one hour of pure stream of consciousness God Whisperers: Tiki conventions, Vancouver Island, Irish pubs, mosques on Ground Zero, Obama’s real religion, and a burning ring of fire. You have been forewarned.
The God Whisperers have some raucous fun with Joel Osteen’s fatwah against pork, shellfish, and other bottom feeders, and then move on to more of Walther’s Proper Distinction of the Law and the Gospel.
Shrinking wetsuits, dieting, Also Sprach Zarathustra, a nice Christmas hymn, on how we speak about death and dying. Oh, and then we get around to Walther’s Thesis 20 and association with the visible church, warts and all. A little something for everyone in this episode.
Anglican hymnody, Genesis 1, Christopher Hitchins, erotica, and when we finally get around to it – mortal and venial sins according to CFW Walther, and a little quarrel with Walther on the proper distinction of mortal and venial sin. It’s a moment.
