We discuss the first half of Romans 8, up to verse 17.
In this episode, we talk a little bit about the The Euthyphro dilemma, and then discuss what are we to do when we "hear" of something explaining God that goes against our God-given conscience?
In this episode we have our dear brother and friend, Dr. Leighton Flowers, on the show to discuss the Universal Witness of God. Leighton is part of the Trinity Commission, a consortium of podcasts associated with Trinity Seminary.
We focus specifically on Romans 7:9-12, and what it means by being alive apart from the Law, and when "the commandment" came Paul died. What is this Law? What is "the commandment"? Why is the Law holy, and the commandment holy, righteous, and good? What commandment is meant to produce life?
Moving through Romans 7, as we sail through the book of Romans.
If obeying the gospel is following and serving the Lord in faith, how is it the "free" gift of eternal life?
We continue discussing the book of Romans, summarizing the first 5 chapters, and moving into chapter 6.
How was the gospel presented pre-cross? Prior to Jesus and the cross, how did you share the good news that one must obey to be saved? One can look at the 4000 years before Jesus and see salvation was still presented the same way. Noah was a preacher of righteousness, 2 Pet.2:5, and the disciples preached the good news; all of them preached the gospel. How do you or could you present the gospel without Jesus and the cross. Disclaimer: we do think you should be using this Jesus and the cross today.
Back in episode 2, we discuss the question, "What is the Gospel". In this episode, one year later, we answer the same question. We encourage you to listen to episode 2, as we discuss different scripture and different arguments in each episode.
