Podcast – Matt Walsh and Young Earth Creationism: Part 2

In Part 2 of our review of Matt Walsh’s videos against the Biblical view of a Young Earth Creation, Pastors Mark Tiefel and Nathanael Mayhew discuss a few additional issues. Why would Matt Walsh single out Ken Ham and not the other scientists on the Answers in Genesis team? First, Ken is probably the most familiar, and while he doesn’t have a scientific PhD, he has many people working with him who do. Leaders in the fields of biology, astronomy,…

Podcast – Matt Walsh and Young Earth Creationism

Pastors Mark Tiefel and Nathanael Mayhew discuss and respond to popular Catholic blogger Matt Walsh and his unscriptural attack on Young Earth Creation, and the account of creation in Genesis 1. Since Matt Walsh is popular in conservative Christian circles, and many of our listeners may have seen his video, we felt it was important to respond and point out the truth, as well as the blatant errors of Matt Walsh on this topic. They discuss… How we read and…

A Moment for Conviction

A Moment for Conviction

Please take a moment and watch this video. I first saw it this morning on TV. After looking it up on ESPN’s YouTube page I found that it was censored. The part below in the tweet was cut out, and upon watching it I’m sure you’ll understand why. It may be about sports (granted, not the most important thing in life). You may also not be aware of the context, which is quite a bit more serious. If you want…

World Religions Podcast: Jehovah’s Witnesses

World Religions Podcast: Jehovah’s Witnesses

Pastor Nathanael Mayhew joins Pastor Mark Tiefel for an in depth look at the Jehovah’s Witness organization. They will briefly discuss the history of this group which began in 1884. While many people think that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are Christian, we learn that they reject the three foundational truths of Christianity: The Trinity, the Deity of Christ, and Salvation by Grace through Faith in the Atonement of Christ. We also look at the New World Translation of the Bible, which…

Not Your God #4 – Appearance

Not Your God #4 – Appearance

Series Theme: When we think of idolatry we often imagine scenes of a carved image from the Old Testament or a false religion today. Idolatry seems like an easy sin to detect and stay clear of. But, there is another side of idolatry that is more subtle. Martin Luther’s Small Catechism calls this “secret idolatry.” This doesn’t mean you are bowing down to an idol in the privacy of your home. Rather, it means that something without religious significance has…

Abstract: When we think of idolatry we often imagine scenes of a carved image from the Old Testament or a false religion today. Idolatry seems like an easy sin to detect and stay clear of. But, there is another side of idolatry that is more subtle. Luther’s Small Catechism calls this “secret idolatry.” This doesn’t mean you are bowing down to an idol in the privacy of your home.

The Posterity

The Posterity

Psalm 22:30-31 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it! (NIV) You might be just as surprised as me. That’s the NIV up there. It uses the word “posterity,” which is strange for a modern translation. Perhaps it’s an indication that a better word really doesn’t exist. What does posterity mean? It’s one of those words that has no doubt…

Not Your God #2: Greed

Not Your God #2: Greed

When we think of idolatry we often imagine it to be an easy sin to detect and stay clear of. Thoughts of carved images and statues from the Old Testament come to our minds and certainly no good Christian succumbs to such things. But, there is another side of idolatry that is more subtle. It’s the type of idolatry that takes something good and makes it more important than God. This idolatry doesn’t involve formal worship or a confession of…

Happy 500th!

Happy 500th!

Today is Reformation Day and, as I’m sure you know by now, not just any ordinary Reformation anniversary. It’s 500 years from the day that Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. Reformation Day is rightly one of the high festivals in the Lutheran Church. It was such an important movement to restoring the unconditional gospel of Jesus Christ that for many years was shrouded in mysticism and ritualism. But, anyone with just a…
