Episode 152: Prayer and the Mighty Wurlitzer



Listener email causes the Manly Doctors to consider the existential question, “Am I really a Christian?”  along with unreality of Rob Bell’s hell.  Donofrio’s eyes and his iPad are acting up.  There is a devout in-depth discussion on the five-part collect form of the liturgy.  Plus, the sonorous tones of the mighty GW Wurlitzer.

    Although I disagree with some things in Love Wins,
    The book itself agrees with what Craig argues about hell.
    It bothered me to hear the name calling by someone who hadn’t read it…

    the main issue Love Wins presents to historical theology is its implications that there is the possibility of conversion after death

    Anyone who complains about all the standing and sitting must never have tried to sit on a pew for an hour straight.

    One of my favorite prayers is the one given by Walter A Meier in the Easter 1942 Lutheran Hour broadcast (available on their website http://www.lutheranhour.org/history.htm#maier). I want this to be prayed at my funeral!

    “O Christ our risen redeemer, eternal thanks be to thee that on the first glorious Easter thou didst mightily prove thyself the Lord of life and of death itself. Help us all to stand gratefully before the empty tomb, there to acclaim thee our mighty God, our merciful savior. Grant us through trusting faith to know that because thou livest we too shall live, and that thy resurrection is our pledge of life eternal. O Jesus on this glorious Easter, let us rise with thee to the heights of sole happiness, casting off all gloom of despondency, conquering our sorrows and pains, defeating the fear of death, overcoming doubt, and, beholding thee as our resurrected Lord, find new faith, new courage, new holiness of living. Enrich us with this Easter gift, our risen Christ, for we pray these petitions in thy holy name. Amen.”

    There’s nothing quite like the thrill of ecstasy that comes from having your comment read aloud on the air by Doug the Dog.

    About Rob Bell: “Inquire no more, you feral beast.”

    Oh well. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope the Ipad gets better soon.

    I’d rather listen to the Wurlitzer music than Sonseed. Are you taking a poll?
