[youtube]KxTglbyabk0[/youtube] Is your salvation in jeopardy if you leave the Lutheran church and join Roman Catholicism? I mean, they have so much in common, they’re, like, totally the same, right? Right?? And how are we to properly understand 1 John 3? It seems like another case where doing good works (obeying commands) saves us, or […]

[youtube]Evgls0xuqh0[/youtube] Today’s Greek Tuesday text is 1 Corinthians 1:10-18. You’re going to love it, even though it is actually last week’s text. Deal with it! Besides, this entire episode is filled with idiocy and foolishness. WEtv videos: Gospel lesson – A Bloody Baby and a Box (Luke 2:21-40) – http://youtu.be/HRjQmLZsJEo Bill Nye the Assertions Guy […]

[youtube]g8V207U-2zY[/youtube] Revelation 20:13, 2 Corinthians 5:10, James 1:22 and 1 Peter 1:17 all seem to make a pretty clear case for works playing a part in our salvation.

[youtube]wuSXjlgQGoU[/youtube] Somehow we got the wrong lectionary reading scheduled, but that doesn’t stop this Greek Tuesday from being awesome!

See how these passages are a reflection on Christ and faith. Matthew 21:17-19: 17.And leaving them, he went out of the city […]

You rock at what you do, sir, explaining the faith in imaginative ways. But every so often I run into a loved one who doesn’t have a proper understanding of one subject or another. Personally speaking, how do you correct a close loved one who’s given over to heretical beliefs? ~P P, This is a […]

Hi Guys Recently my LCMS church has been teaching some strange ideas. First- the idea of “soul sleep”. The concept that our souls sleep until the resurrection instead of going to heaven. And- the concept that the Bible does not promise heaven, but paradise, after death. Our bodies will rest in the ground, our souls […]

[youtube]G7H6d45ZVe4[/youtube] You want a crystal clear text that tells you baptism saves and at the same time shows how the apostle Paul is Lutheran? We got both today!! Romans 6:1-11 (with 12 added on for fun) does just that as Paul teaches two things at once: You are covered by grace and this grace comes […]

Rev. Fisk and/or WE Lutheran Ninja Clan… person… I have a very brief question about a passage in scripture… Does Matthew 18:10 prove Guardian angels watch over children? ~C Dear C: Matthew 18:10 certainly speaks to the fact that angels minister to the children of God (young and old), and yet in their service to […]
