[youtube]vkPYHgP7tjI[/youtube] Today’s AskDaPastor takes on questions about forgiveness of sins, repentance and what our church polity should look like. What does forgiveness look like in Lutheran theology? What are the means of grace for if all sins are forgiven on the cross? And related to this whole forgiveness thing, what should the church that delivers […]

Dear WE team, It increasingly seems like God has placed me on a path leading to a seminary education to become a pastor. The only problem with this is that I’ve never really had strong skills as far as interacting with other people goes. Because of this, I fear that my ability to care for […]

Good day, Pastor Fisk. I am a reformed Christian in the Anglican tradition. Lutheranism is perhaps my “other favorite” in the protestant tradition. I rather like the Augsburg Confession (as do you probably lol).

We were doing devotion the other night and reading about Abraham. Our kids noticed right away that Abraham had more than one wife and they asked why? I didn’t have an answer for them. I also know that other OT figures (Solomon, David etc) had many wives and concubines. Why did God allow this? Why […]

I’ve noticed many pro-choice people, and even some Christians, claim that the church doesn’t care about the needs of born children. Although I agree that the church could always do more to help and support those in need, it doesn’t seem reasonable to suggest that if the church does not usher in utopia, it doesn’t […]

[youtube]sEH5V4yxlV0[/youtube] Greek Tuesday is here! On Wednesday… Pastor Fisk walks us through Luke 7:1-10 and once again gives us great insight on how the Greek text emphasizes “believing” while our modern English translation tend to emphasize “doing”. And the minute of black silence at the end is there so you can ponder what you just […]
