Episode 99: Law and Gospel (part 15)

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

A little silliness with the special effects board, a somewhat garbled call by a disgruntled listener, Craig’s confusing 2010 for 2001 – A Space Odyssey, and of course, more whisperings of Law and Gospel and their proper distinction from CFW Walther’s theses 15 and 16.  The right understanding of conversion, repentance, and faith.  Good fun, great theology, here on The God  Whisperers.

Episode 98: Law and Gospel (part 14)

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

A caller takes issue with one of Donofrio’s statements about forgiveness.  Donofrio gets slapped around by Cwirla at the caller’s request.  And then it’s on to Thesis 14 of the Proper Distinction of the Law and the Gospel and the improper understanding of faith as a cause of justification.  All here on a very physical smack down edition of the God Whisperers.

Episode 97: Law and Gospel (part 13)

Is faith a work?  Something we do?  Thesis 13 of Walther’s Law and Gospel when we finally get around to it in a particularly chatty episode of The God Whisperers.

Episode 95: Law and Gospel (part 11)

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Space Robot Spirituals, Operation Godzilla, St. Onofre, the naked hermet, nude beaches, and Thesis 11 of CFW Walther’s Proper Distinction of the Law and the Gospel.  Oh, and great root beer, too.

Episode 94: Law and Gospel (part 10)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Craig plays his ukulele (sort of), and we talk about the nature of sin, grace, faith and love from Thesis X of Walther’s Proper Distinction of the Law and the Gospel.  Also “Spinal Tap” and a few other cinematic digressions.

Episode 93: Law and Gospel (part 9)

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Law and Gospel are confused when we mix up our insides and outsides.  When it comes to forgiveness, life, and salvation, don’t look inward but outward.  It’s all extra nos, outside of ourselves in the Word and the Sacraments.

Episode 90: Law and Gospel (part 6)

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Jesus a “new lawgiver” in the way of Moses?  No, that was Charlton Heston!  That and much more on this episode of the God Whisperers.

Episode 89: Law and Gospel (part 5)

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Yes, that’s right.  More heaping globs of Law and Gospel, properly distinguished, courtesy of the Manly Drs.  Without this distinction, the Bible remains a sealed book, or at least a book of seeming contradictions.  Is it wrath or mercy?  Damnation or salvation?  Yes!  Check it out!

Episode 88: Law and Gospel (part 4)

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

We’re talking the Law and the Gospel as taught by the Holy Spirit in the “school of experience,” according to Walther.  If experience is a school, then your funeral is graduation day.

Episode 87: Law and Gospel (part 3)

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

After a detour on some email, Armenian delis, incense allergies, and giving to the poor, we finally get back on track with Walther’s thesis #2 on the Law and the Gospel and how being “biblical” isn’t enough.  Check it out.
