Do all paths lead to God? Is the Bible history or mythology? Are we saved by grace or good works? Featuring conversations with Christians from a variety traditions, this program is designed to give you a better understanding of what you believe and why you believe it.
Sola Scriptura: Our One Foundation
With Sola Scriptura, or “through Scripture alone,” the Reformers affirmed the authority of Scripture over and above the tradition of the Roman Catholic church. Today, questions of authority and accountability still plague the church, stemming from the influence of radical Anabaptists, modern biblicists, the continued tradition of Rome, and our own culturally shaped desires to have the final say. In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland discuss sola Scriptura and how it can be good news for the church today.
Inside the Evangelical Movement that Failed a Generation with Guest Jon Ward
In this bonus episode of White Horse Inn, Michael Horton interviews Jon Ward about his new book Testimony: Inside the Evangelical Movement that Failed a Generation, which discusses his experience in the Evangelical church and his takeaways after stepping out of it. (Episode SP012)
Impact of the Gospel: Growing Deeper, Never Out
Throughout history, Christianity has profoundly impacted societies for the better, with Christians founding hospitals and adoption agencies and advocating for the poor and oppressed. Today, we may benefit from these Christian influences, but do we carry on their legacy? Are we contributing to the growth of Christianity, or are we growing out of it? In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland point us to God’s work all around us, encouraging us toward a faith-centered life in the “already” as we anticipate the joy of the “not yet.”
Sprouts of the New Creation
The darkness can often feel out of control, tempting us towards hopelessness and fear. Scripture assures us that God is powerful and his mercy is abundant, and even now the gospel is planting seeds of Christ’s kingdom in and through his people. So, where are these sprouts of the new creation? In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland reflect on God’s work in their own lives, helping us see the age to come breaking in on this present evil age through the ministry of sinful human beings.
Living Between Worlds
Trying to achieve salvation through works is a human tendency, but this works-based ideology is contrary to the Bible’s message of salvation by grace alone through faith in Christ alone. So, how does living in the already-but-not-yet impact our standing before God? What does it mean for where our citizenship lies? In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland discuss the role of the church and what it means to be in the world but not of it.
Eschatology: Last Things First
When someone mentions the “end times,” what comes to mind? Does it make you anxious, or perhaps tempt you to sit back and idly wait? Eschatology refers to the end, but really, it ought to come first. Our understanding of how things end positions us in God’s timeline and orient's us toward the ultimate goal of our salvation. In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland dive into the theological history of eschatology, how we should be practicing it, and why it’s vital.
Faithful preaching is so rare nowadays.
Thank you for staying faithful to the Bible, especially in this day and age where nobody seems to care about what Christianity truly means. Thank you.👏🏼
