We dive right into some great listener responses first and then discuss 2 of the 5 solas of the Protestant Reformation: Sola Fide ('by Faith Alone') and Sola Gratia ('Grace Alone').
We interact with some feedback from an atheist about evolution from our recent Darwin's Doubt show with Dr. Stephen C. Meyer. Then we transition into the Protestant doctrine of Sola Fide (Scripture Alone); what it means; what it doesn't mean; why it's important, and its practical applications.
BONUS: We recommend this sermon preached at Roosevelt Community Church on these solas as a compliment to this program: Sola Scriptura by Vocab Malone
It is essential to grasp not only the doctrines of the Reformation but also the historical background - this show helps you do just that. We cover the major ideas, doctrines, the Reformers themselves and we play a rap song on the German Reformation by hip hop artist Through Hymn.
Clement of Rome is considered an 'Apostolic Father'. He wrote to the Corinthians about 40 years after Paul's letter.
Learn why this early epistle is important and hear some key highlights from 1 Clement.
The claims Rome makes for herself can be shown to be false. Two big reasons why Rome cannot be the one true church:
- Justification. They teach dogma directly contrary to the essential elements of the gospel.
- History. Many historical examples are contra Rome’s claims about papal authority/infallibility.
*WE EVEN SNEAK IN A RAP SONG WRITTEN AND PERFORMED LIVE BY MARTIN LUTHER HIMSELF!
