Episode 182: The Annunciation, Dry Masses, and Receptionism

Monday, March 26th, 2012

A reading for the Annunciation of our Lord; the “Dry Mass” revisited, a defense of the Service of Prayer and Preaching from LSB, Bible translation right, wrong, and nuanced and why real men learn Greek, Receptionism vs Consecrationism and why both are wrong, and why all kids are liberals.  Yeah, there’s no script to this show.

Episode 181: Sunrise Baptismal Floods in Marijuanaville.

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

OK, so the title is a glaring case of word salad.  So is the show.  The Manly Doctors of Mahem move meticulously and seemlessly from a discussion of sunrise services and other Easter atrocities to an in-depth discussion of the typologies of 1 Peter 3 including the descensus ad infera and the connection between the Flood and Baptism, which now saves you. along with Pat Robertson and legalized marijuana.  But wait!  There’s more!  The Feast of St. Joseph!  Is this show ready for prime time or what?

Episode 180: A Million Moustaches and More

Monday, March 12th, 2012

In a special facial hair edition of the GW, the Manly Doctors open the 3rd microphone to amply mustached LCMS synodical president Matt Harrison who talks about anything he wants.  In the second half, the Manly Doctors take up listener mail and a question about women readers in the divine service along with the Million Mustache March.

Episode 179: Lent, Dead People, Heidelberg and an Aussie.

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

The Manly Doctors go international with Skype calls from Australia and France, discuss Lenten customs and disciplines such as prayer, fasting, almsgiving, bacon, bottom-feeders, and Amarula along with prayers to the saints.  The second half deals with “Christian dualism” and and Thesis 18 of the Heidelberg Disputation.  Cute as a koala.
