For this episode, I was joined by Dr. Danusha Goska, author of Save, Send, Delete and a fascinating article on why she left Leftism. Widely traveled, Dr. Goska has experienced the world's most prominent religions but remains a lifelong Roman Catholic. Why? What compels her to still believe in God and the revelation of Jesus Christ? Her book is an email correspondence with a well-known atheist, and her article can be found here.

Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.

First Lutheran also publishes a daily podcast called The Scarlet Thread (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-scarlet-thread/id1110938468?mt=2). This podcast is a reading of the appointed texts for the Two-Year Daily Lectionary. After two years, listeners will have heard most of the Old Testament once and most of the New Testament twice. If you are liturgically-minded and want a little more Bible in your life, this is a great podcast for you.

In this solo episode, I look at two articles. The first looks at "Grace Alone" from a Roman Catholic point-of-view. (That article is here.) What does it really mean to "cooperate" with God in salvation? Is "grace first" good enough or were the reformers right to insist on "grace alone"? I also look at an article that argues that there is no such thing as hate speech, only unfavorable opinions that are labeled as such to shut down free speech. Oh, and just how much should churches spend on their parking lot?

The Benedict Option has been called the most important Christian book in decades. But what does it really propose? Is it anything new? And is it even the best "option" out there? For that matter, do Christians have options other than the biblical "option" found in the Great Commission? How should Christians response to a hostile culture? Wyatt Graham of The Gospel Coalition of Canada joins me and we use his latest article as the foundation for our conversation. That article can be found here

I was joined by Zachary King, a former Satanist of 26 years, of All Saints Ministry. We talked about his past life as a Satanist and what Satanists believe, the Biblical reality of the devil and his minions, and recent Satanic encroachment into the public square. Is Satanism essentially a boutique rebellion, or a more mainstream group than we think? Is this an underground movement that has significant appeal or does the media blow it out of proportion? You listen and decide. I definitely will take it more seriously than I used to after this interview. [I'm not labeling this episode either Clean or Explicit because the content may be inappropriate for some children, though there is no profanity.]
