The UnBiblical Removal of Pastors

BJS_JoshuaScheerw100Pr. Joshua Scheer joins us to discuss the sinful and unbiblical removal of pastors from their congregations. What non-Scriptural reasons do some congregations give for removing their pastors from their God-given calls? What are true, Biblical ways in which a pastor may/should be removed from his call? How do the Ten Commandments enlighten us on what’s going on here?

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2 (continued)

BJS_BruceTimmWhat other reasons does Pr. Bruce Timm have for using the Church’s liturgy? How does the liturgy teach the young and sustain the old? Isn’t the liturgy “boring”? And that’s a good thing? How does it unite us in confessing the faith as a synod? (or was it “senate”?) How does using the liturgy help us to “be green,” or environmentally friendly?

Read Pr. Timm’s articles, “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” (Reasons #1-3)

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #4”

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #5”

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #6”

Look for Pr. Timm’s articles on Reasons 7 – 11 coming soon at steadfastlutherans.org. (What can we say? We’re just ahead of the game in getting Pr. Timm – and the BJS editors – to post his remaining reasons!)

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2

BJS_BruceTimmPr. Bruce Timm just had to come back to smack down the hosts – especially Eric! – as he continues discussing his articles titled “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” Did Adam and Eve have the liturgy in the Garden of Eden? What does the book of Leviticus teach us about the Church’s liturgy in our day? What can the book of Acts teach us on using the liturgy?

Why I Use the Liturgy

BJS_BruceTimmPr. Bruce Timm joins us to discuss his article, “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” In a world filled with cotton-candy, entertainment-style worship, why would we actually want to use the Church’s liturgy? We discuss Pr. Timm’s first three reasons – out of eleven – for why he uses the liturgy. Also, listen carefully to how deftly Pr. Timm smacks down both hosts of the show!
