Many thanks to American Vision's Joel McDurmon for stopping by to discuss his important book, "The Problem of Slavery in Christian America." This book traces the history of slave laws and the Christian acceptance and even defense of the practice in America. Understanding this issue is important for Christians who want to be consistent in understanding current justice issues and the Biblical foundation for their advocacy. There was so much more to cover, but to learn more, buy the book! 

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.

This solo episode looks at a handful of stories. We begin with the sad tale of destruction of a congregation's building in China (thanks Communism!). Then we look at the Supreme Court's recent cake baker decision with a bit of hindsight, Michelle Wolf's brand of "humor", and two stories about Church governance and discipline, the last one with a fascinating dramatic twist.

This solo episode looks at two teachings from radically different perspectives on what to do with those voices in your head. You know, the voice of conscience or promptings from God or temptations from the devil. Theological liberal Nadia Bolz-Weber suggests that voices of accusation are from the devil and can mostly be ignored. Joel Osteen says they are prompts from God and should "just" be obeyed. Well, which is it?!

This solo show looks at a recent Huffington Post article that claims to unlock what religion "really" teachings about the LGBT issue. It focuses particularly on Philip and the Eunuch in Acts 8. We then look at the Satanic origins of MS-13 and one man's hypocritical rant against hypocrisy.
