With this segment we begin a series with Pr. Joe Abrahamson on the meaning and message of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. In Part 1, Pr. Abrahamson gives an overview of the Catechism and throws down against some faulty views of God, original sin, and God’s Law. Hear him respond to Rob Bell’s “definition” of God, Joel Osteen’s denial of original sin, and David Ashcraft’s mistaken notion of the purpose of God’s Law.
In December 2013, Joshua Genig left the Lutheran Church and the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, claiming that he had found his way home to Eastern Orthodoxy. Pr. Christopher Neuendorf responds and says, “We’re already home.” Listen to Pr. Neuendorf explain what he means, and hear some of the history and doctrinal discussion between the Lutherans and the Orthodox at the time of the Reformation.
