Monday, October 1st, 2012

In a special all Barenaked Ladies edition, the Manly Doctors take one for Team Jesus with a scintillating discussion of Free Will (Formula of Concord Article II), their pastors conference in Palm  Springs, and beating on the usual array of dead horses:  Manichaeism, Pelagianism, Semi-Pelagianism, and 5 Point Calvinism.  And don’t forget your Go Team Jesus megaphone and popcorn holder.

Episode 198: Does Garlic Juice Demagnetize Calvinism?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

A fragrant edition of the God Whisperers in which the Manly Doctors ponder Calvinism and “irresistible Grace,” correct a few misconception, deal with “biblical diets,” original sin, and whether garlic juice is capable of demagnetizing iron or Calvinists.  Also a little Bohemian Rhapsody and some more Squirrel Nut Zippers.  An episode befitting the stinking rose.

episode 187: “I Think You’re Remembering Something Else.”

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

The Manly Doctors of Divinity engage the functional differences of Calvinism vs. Lutheranism, theses 20-26 of the Heidelberg Disputation and why the harder you look at good works the less good they look.  Then in a brilliant moment of middle-aged dementia, thinking he is quoting the Scriptures, Donofrio begins to channel the Council of Trent on faith as the “first work,” while Cwirla desperately tries to find it in the Greek text, concluding with this memorable line:  ”I think you’re remembering something else.”  Kyrie Eleison!
