    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part V

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part V

    Part 1: Law of the Day (Matthew 22:15-22) - “Then the Pharisees went and plotted how to entangle him in his words. And they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are true and teach the way of God truthfully, and you do not care about anyone's opinion, for you are not swayed by appearances. Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?....”


    Part 2: Today I connect the topic of idolatry with that of vaccine and mask mandates. I consider some of the common phrases or mottos that we see publicly displayed. I also look at the speech given by Governor Kathy Hochul of New York a few months ago. Are these speeches just examples of flamboyant language, or is something deeper taking place? In what ways has the vaccine become idolatrous? What should our response be?

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part IV

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part IV

    Part 1: Law of the Day (1 Corinthians 10:23-33) - “...But if someone says to you, 'This has been offered in sacrifice,' then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience— I do not mean your conscience, but his. For why should my liberty be determined by someone else’s conscience...?"


    Part 2: Today I continue with the series on idolatry and civil disobedience. In this episode, I consider the various phases, or steps, of civil disobedience. This includes prayer/petition, escape, and self-defense. I also look at what it means for lesser magistrates to resist higher magistrates. When a whole community of people cannot escape, how do they engage in civil disobedience?

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part III

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part III

    Part 1: Law of the Day (Deuteronomy 7:17-26) - “...You shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them or take it for yourselves, lest you be ensnared by it, for it is an abomination to the LORD your God. And you shall not bring an abominable thing into your house and become devoted to destruction like it. You shall utterly detest and abhor it, for it is devoted to destruction."


    Part 2: Today I continue with the series on idolatry and civil disobedience. In this episode, I look at the persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire. I consider why the Christians were persecuted, how it was implemented, and how they responded. Lastly, I discuss the martyrdom of Cyprian, a Christian leader from North Africa.

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part II

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part II

    Part 1: Law of the Day (Deuteronomy 12:29-32) - “When the LORD your God cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?—that I also may do the same.’ You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way, for every abominable thing that the LORD hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.”


    Part 2: Today I continue with the series on idolatry and civil disobedience. In this episode, I look at how to detect idols within a culture. This includes either things that are inherently wicked or good things that have become idols. I also look at how Christians have responded to cultural idols in Scripture as well as historically. Finally, I consider how Christians were perceived in the Roman Empire and how they reacted to the pagan idolatry within it.

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part I

    Idolatry and Civil Disobedience, Part I

    Part 1: Law of the Day (Exodus 23:13) - “Pay attention to all that I have said to you, and make no mention of the names of other gods, nor let it be heard on your lips.”


    Part 2: Today I begin another series on the topic of idolatry and civil disobedience. In this first episode, I define idolatry and discuss what it looks like. Passages like Romans 1 and Isaiah 44 are central to understanding the nature of idolatry. I also look at how idolatry leads to death and can never result in life.

    Climate Change and Judgment, Part II

    Climate Change and Judgment, Part II

    Part 1: Law of the Day (Leviticus 25:1-7): “The LORD spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land that I give you, the land shall keep a Sabbath to the LORD...”


    Part 2: Today I continue with the topic of climate change and consider several passages from the Old Testament prophets. I also look at how secularism views climate change and how this also is a religious system. Both secularism and Christianity have a concept of sin, atonement, and good works. The question is whether we will serve God or idols.

Good basic Bible Interpretation

Eric takes an organized approach to presenting Biblical truth and interprets the scriptures in a normative manner. There is no “ax to grind” or an agenda to present. If you are interested in good Bible teaching on specific topics- in this case government- this is a good podcast to listen to regularly.

Deeply rooted and conversational

For evangelicals who love robust church history and reformed theology, this is a fantastic podcast. I appreciate the though provoking application of the Gospel to everyday ideas and current cultural conversations.

All round great podcast for deepening theology and strengthening worldview!
