    “I Have Nothing Left to Hear Me Say”: Religion without Authority

    “I Have Nothing Left to Hear Me Say”: Religion without Authority

    Where does the spirituality of enthusiasm and the New Apostolic Reformation ultimately lead? Hosts Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Walter Strickland, and Justin Holcomb show how ecstatic shaman-like spirituality wrought in enthusiasm results in an isolated life. While autonomous spiritual practices may free us from the external structures and authorities of religion, the hosts share how the ordinary means of grace is the only place where we find true freedom and rest in our spiritual lives.

    The New (Old) Apostolic Reformation

    The New (Old) Apostolic Reformation

    The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements "within or on the periphery of American Christianity." Join Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Walter Strickland, and Justin Holcomb as they discuss where this contemporary movement came from, what its tenets of dominionism, new apostles, and direct revelation are, why its teachings are so prominent in Contemporary Christian Music, and how they are connected to the old, esoteric tradition of enthusiasm.

    The “Enthusiasts'' of Church History: From Montanists to Modern Day ``Prophets''

    The “Enthusiasts'' of Church History: From Montanists to Modern Day ``Prophets''

    Martin Luther once said that, "Adam was the first enthusiast," and by "enthusiast" he doesn’t mean someone who is enthusiastic. The philosophy of enthusiasm is "god-within-ism," a belief and tendency to pit internal spirituality versus external texts, institutions, and authorities. In this episode, Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Walter Strickland, and Bob Hiller discuss how this "god-within-ism" has appeared in the church, from Montanists, to medieval monks, radical figures in the Reformation, Enlightenment philosophers, and contemporary movements today.

    Bob Hiller sits down with Adriel Sanchez to discuss the most famous prayer in history and his new book, Praying with Jesus: Getting to the Heart of the Lord’s Prayer. Adriel is the pastor of North Park Presbyterian Church in San Diego and the host of Sola Media’s radio program, Core Christianity.

Listen in as Bob and Adriel also walk through the petitions of our Lord’s Prayer and how practicing the prayer transforms our lives. (Episode SP017)

    A Vision for a Modern Reformation: From Dechurched to Rechurched

    A Vision for a Modern Reformation: From Dechurched to Rechurched

    We can't go back to the church environments we grew up with, we can only go forward. So what would a healthy modern reformation and a Great Rechurching look like? Rather than wallowing in pessimism and longing to return to the church of yesteryear, Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Justin Holcomb, and Walter Strickland discuss how the church today can reform and be marked by orthodoxy, love, and resilient joy.

    Equipping You to Minister to the Dechurched in Your Life

    Equipping You to Minister to the Dechurched in Your Life

    If you go to church, do you know why you attend? Do you know why your friends and family have casually just stopped going to church? How can we talk about the necessity of the church in a way that is beautiful and life-giving, but goes beyond personal preference? In this episode, Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Walter Strickland, and Bob Hiller answer these questions and more as they discuss how Christians can reach out to their dechurched friends, family, and neighbors.
     
    “When asked how willing they would be to go back to church, 51 percent said they are either somewhat willing or very willing—51 percent! Unsurprisingly, the reasons they would come back also represent a longing to belong. These dechurched evangelicals said they would come back if they made new friends (28%), if they move and want to make new friends (18%), if they became lonely and want to make new friends (20%), if their children want to go (16%), if their spouse wants to go (18%), if a friend invites them (17%), if there is a good pastor (18%), if they find a good community (17%), if they miss their church community (20%), or if they just find a church they like (14%). This group's high orthodoxy scores also inform other reasons they would come back: if they feel the distance from God (20%) or if God tells them to go back in some significant way (18%). The main takeaway here is that many dechurched evangelicals simply need a friend to invite them to church.” - The Great Dechurching: Who’s Leaving, Why Are They Going, and What Will It Take to Bring Them Back? by Jim Davis and Michael Graham, with Ryan P. Burge, p. 28.

My Favorite Theological Podcast

Great teaching from a Reformed perspective. I appreciate all the teaching, and as a Baptist, am particularly encouraged by Walter Strickland’s representation of what excellence in Reformed theology looks like from a Baptist perspective. Highly recommended!
