What does it mean that the kingdom consists in power, is effective, and causes those who are truly in Christ to live fulfilled lives? How do those in Christ seem to deal with the stresses of the world more lightheartedly? What sets the Christian’s fulfillment apart from the fulfillment of those who are part of the world?

What if God required restitution for the millennia-long sin of humanity? If we can’t even give God the Lord’s Day, what makes us think we have given Him any other part of our lives? Is our confession lip service only? Considering Sunday’s sermon from Isaiah 53, Andrew, Albert, PA, and Ken consider the resurrection, woke gospel, restitution owed God, leaving the SBC, modern-day synods, faithfulness to the body of Christ, and using the stamina and drive of youth for God rather than self.

On Maundy (or Commandment) Thursday, Jesus gave His disciples a new command–to love one another like He had loved them. The Gospel is not the gospel of racialization, restitution, or entitlement like we are now popularly hearing. It is a Gospel of self-sacrifice, service, and unconditional forgiveness. Self-sacrifice is the fruit by which people can distinguish true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Bible prophecy!!! Today, Andrew, Kati, Ken, Cathy, and Darby talk about Sunday’s sermon, Holy Tuesday, and Secret Women Stuff. Because the worldly means of peace and justice are not working, there are fresh ears to hear the Gospel of real peace and justice. The crew discusses the present kingdom of Jesus Christ and Christians who don’t believe He is currently reigning. They consider whether drinking too much coffee is equivalent to getting drunk. They apply the promise of federal dominion in Zechariah 9 to the decision nations have between Christ and chaos. They consider agnostic submission to King Jesus. They look at Jesus’s Easter teaching in Matthew 24. When would the stones be toppled and Christ come in judgment? What were the signs of Christ’s coming in judgment?

A couple church members asked if we would do a blog series about the doctrines of grace. I (Andrew) simply don’t have much more time to devote to writing in that capacity around preparation for sermons, bible studies, and school work. So, we are doing a casual-conversation podcast to meet the need. Please enjoy. We will begin with the five solas because they are the necessary foundation for the doctrines of grace.
