Gospel Points Podcast – Passing by the Field part 1 (with Pastor Steve Brandon)

(download the mp3 archive here)

This week the Gospel Points podcast is back!  After quite the long hiatus, I will finally be posting more podcasts in the coming weeks.  It’s been quite the passingbythefieldhectic schedule for me these past few months and a lot has changed in my life since our last posting.  But, by God’s grace I’ll keep on keeping on.  However, I will be officially changing our podcast schedule from seasons of weekly podcasts to whenever I get the time to record and upload.  Of course, that’s not really much of a change at all…

Anyway, this week the Gospel Points podcast will feature a look at the book Passing by the Field by Pastor Steve Brandon.  Steve Brandon is the pastor of the Rock Valley Bible Church in Loves Park, IL and our guest on the program.  Join us as we explore wisdom gained from everyday life as seen through the lens of the Word of God.  We’ll look at gospel truths and easily applicable lessons.

Gospel Points Podcast Season Two Episode 2 – Is the Charismatic My Brother? – Part 2

Welcome back to another season of the Gospel Points podcast!  As we jump into season two, we look back at the controversy stirred up by John MacArthur’s Strange Fire conference.  The conference took aim at the Charismatic movement and their distortions of the true message of Christianity replacing it with a prosperity gospel punctuated with silliness and sacrilegious lunacy.  But, is this a fair characterization of the movement as a whole?  Some have suggested the false teachers mentioned at this conference are not typical of Charismatics in general.

This week we will ask the question, is the Charismatic my brother?  Are  the preachers in this movement all false teachers or do we serve Christ together in full gospel unity?  To discuss this topic I invited my friend, Pastor Michael Carl.  Mike is the pastor of the Christ the King Charismatic Episcopal Church in Wakefield, MA.

In this second installment of our interview, I ask Pastor Mike why do we need visions or tongues if we already have a completed canon and what about those are not healed through these “healing services”?

You can also check out Michael Carl’s news website at www.powerlinenewsnetwork.com or follow his articles on WorldNetDaily at www.wnd.com/author/mcarl.

For more information, I would recommend the following two books:

Gospel Points Podcast 23 – Engaging With Tim Keller, Part 3

This week on Gospel Points we will be discussing the book Engaging with Keller. Tim Keller is perhaps one of Evangelicalism’s most influential pastors and theologians. He has had a profound effect on many church planters across the globe. Yet, some feel as though certain aspects aspects of his theology may be a bit compromised in the way he communicates his otherwise Biblical message. In this book “several writers engage with different aspects of Keller’s thought. While indebted to Keller in many ways, they also wish to examine his position in the light of Scripture and to work constructively as well as critically with his published works. That such an influential figure should be the subject of discussion is not surprising; what will be surprising to many is that not all evangelcials are prepared to accept without question all of Keller’s conclusions or formulations. This is a book to stimulate discussion and to remind us that god’s Word must always to be out final judge in matters of theology, evangelism and apologetics.”

Joining us to discuss this book is one of its editors, Dr. Bill Schweitzer. In this final of three podcasts, we chat about chapter 6 of the book, ‘Not Quite’ Theistic Evolution.
