    Wives and Submission (1 Peter 3:1)

    Wives and Submission (1 Peter 3:1)

    Rapp Report episode 194



    Andrew provides a detailed explanation of the passages used to explain the submission of wives. Many people have not searched the context to understand the meaning. Must wives obey their husbands in every aspect? Must wives submit to their husbands at all? Does Ephesians 5:22 and 1 Peter 3:1 teach that wives must submit to their own husbands or is there a great context that is often missed? It is important to look at the context. It is in the context of each passage that we see the truth of Scripture and it may not lead to where you think it will. Sometimes the common understanding of a passage of Scripture is not the clear meaning because some do not examine the context and see the greater context.



    The reality is that the two main passages used to teach wives submission to their own husbands have a greater context that is often ignored. The Scriptures teach that we are each to have submission to one another. Just as a wife is to submit to her own husband, so each husband is to submit to their wife. This lesson will help to understand the divisive issues taught in the church and explain the context to help balance the views held by many churches.

    God the Father, What We Believe, Part 5

    Rapp Report episode 193



    Andrew and Bud continue the What We Believe statement from the Striving for Eternity website series discussing God the Father. This is a branch of theology known as Theology Proper.



    The What We Believe statement from the Striving for Eternity website discussed is:



    "God the Father, the first Person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace (Psalm 145:8-9; 1 Corinthians 8:6). He is the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1-31; Ephesians 3:9). As the only absolute and omnipotent Ruler in the universe, He is sovereign in creation, providence, and redemption (Psalm 103:19; Romans 11:36). His Fatherhood involves both His designations within the Trinity and His relationship with mankind. As Creator He is Father to all men (Ephesians 4:6), but He is spiritual Father only to believers (Romans 8:14; 2 Corinthians 6:18). He has an all-inclusive plan that He designed for His own glory in all things that come to pass (Ephesians 1:11). He continually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and events (1 Chronicles 29:11). In His sovereignty He is neither author nor approver of sin (a class="rtBibleRef" href="https://biblia.com/bible/nasb95/Hab%201.13" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-reference="Hab 1.

    Interpreting Scripture, What We Believe, Part 3

    Interpreting Scripture, What We Believe, Part 3

    Rapp Report episode 190



    Continuing on the What We Believe series, Andrew and Bud examine the subject of interpreting Scripture.



     



    The part of the What We Believe statement that Andrew and Bud examine is the following:



    "The only means of interpreting Scripture is a literal, grammatical, and historical interpretation which affirms the belief that the opening chapters of Genesis present creation in six literal days (Genesis 1:31; Exodus 31:17) and seeing a distinction between Israel and the church. The Bible constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and practice (Matthew 5:18; 24:35; John 10:35; 16:12-13; 17:17; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21). Whereas there may be many applications of any given passage of Scripture, there is but one true interpretation according to God, except where Scripture makes it clear that God intended a dual meaning. The meaning of Scripture is to be found as one diligently applies the literal grammatical-historical method of interpretation under the illuminating of the Holy Spirit (John 7:17; 16:12-15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-15; a class="rtBibleRef" href="https://biblia.com/bible/nasb95/1%20John%202.20" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-reference="1 John 2.

    What is the Inspiration of Scripture? – What We Believe, Part 2

    What is the Inspiration of Scripture? – What We Believe, Part 2

    Rapp Report episode 189



    How was the Scripture inspired? What is inspiration? Andrew and Bud unpack the Striving for Eternity doctrinal statement and discuss the teachings of the Scripture.



    The statement discussed from What We Believe: "The Bible is inspired by God. Inspiration is that supernatural work of the Holy Spirit in which He superintended (controlled and directed) the reception (to the writers) and communication (to the hearers and the readers) of the divine message to mankind such that the product (the original writing) is verbally (every word) and plenary (completely) both inerrant (without error) and authoritative (2 Timothy 3:16). God spoke in His written Word by a process of dual authorship. The Holy Spirit so superintended the human authors that, through their individual personalities and different styles of writing, they composed and recorded God’s Word to man (2 Peter 1:20-21) without error in the whole or in the part (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16), thus, making the Scriptures completely and totally sufficient for life and godliness."

Informative, Truth with love

Andrew does a great job of presenting the truths of the Gospel in love. I always learn ways to bring up spiritual matters when speaking with others plus how to handle questions that may come up. He also has interesting guests. Love the input from Bud also! In Christ, Grady Colossians 3:15-17

Stellar, detailed, and refreshing

I’ve listened to a lot of various podcasts and sermons from Andrew but the Rapp report is my favorite. Andrew often times speaks with Bud on major issues of today facing the Christian. It is refreshing to hear deep solid truth that greatly assists Christians in their walk with the LORD. There are too few strong Christian leaders like Andrew and Bud willing to go into such great lengths to share the truth. I’ve had the pleasure to meet Andrew multiple times. I try to share his podcast with as many receptive Christians as I can because I know they will be greatly blessed by his teaching. Keep up the great godly work!

Your brother in Christ,

Factual, Faithful, Fun!

Andrew never fails to share biblical and gospel truth effectively and entertainingly. The Rapp Report has encouraged, inspired, and challenged me, at times filling me with laughter and riddling me with conviction. In a world full of fluff, it is refreshing to become "rapped-up" in the solid theology of this Podcast!
