Daniel and Erick start Paul’s letter to the Philippians in this episode. Paul lays out his affections for them in the strongest possible language. The gospel is advancing in unlikely ways, including imprisonment and preachers with bad motives. To live is Christ, to die is gain and some suffering is a gift. Have a listen!
Daniel and Erick wrap up 2nd Peter. Jesus seems to be taking His time coming again. Why does God’s “soon” take so long? How should we view the time between the ascension of Christ and His return? Does God desire that everyone be saved? Why does Peter compare Jesus to a thief in the night? Peter affirms Paul but says some people twist his word. All of this is discussed. Have a listen!
Peter explains why the things he is saying about Jesus should be trusted. He freaks out on false teachers. Argues that the atonement is for the very worst of heretics. Defends true freedom. And uses an unlikely example of a righteous man. Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
Daniel and Erick begin 2 Peter in this episode. They spend some time discussing some of the controversy around this book and how to engage with it. Peter makes it clear that we already have everything that has to do with life and godliness. Free people can pursue virtue for the sake of love. And our biggest problem is forgetting we’re forgiven.
