Perspicuous and Vulgar: On the Clarity of Scripture

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

Scripture is the Word of the Lord, and the Word of the Lord is understandable by men of average intelligence. Those who deny the perspicuity of the Scriptures are wolves who accuse God of lying and who seek to lead the sheep astray. It is clear that Christians are to read Scripture and that they will be able to understand it — this is a truth found throughout Scripture, not just in a handful of places.

The law of the LORD is perfect, 
      reviving the soul; 
the testimony of the LORD is sure, 
      making wise the simple; 
the precepts of the LORD are right, 
      rejoicing the heart; 
the commandment of the LORD is pure, 
      enlightening the eyes; 
the fear of the LORD is clean, 
      enduring forever; 
the rules of the LORD are true, 
      and righteous altogether. 
More to be desired are they than gold, 
      even much fine gold; 
sweeter also than honey 
      and drippings of the honeycomb. 
Moreover, by them is your servant warned; 
      in keeping them there is great reward. 

Satan adapts his attacks over time, and today he has focused his attack on the clarity of Scripture (for he can no longer simply keep Scripture out of the hands of the laity). The contend that Scripture is unclear, dark, unknowable is to contend that it is not Scripture and to endanger the faith. Christians must affirm — and staunchly defend — the Scriptures as the inerrant Word of God.

A Name No Man Knows

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

We are told to be as harmless as doves, but also to be as wise as serpents. There are times to speak and times to hold ones tongue; there are times to speak under one’s Christian name and times to speak under a pseudonym. Of course, there are those who would contend that the use of pseudonyms is cowardly or even sinful, but seldom are these individuals consistent — attacking one group for pseudonymity, while ignoring or even praising another that practices the same.

Is there a place for pseudonymity in the Christian church? Or are those who employ it ‘anonymous [sic] trolls’ as some would contend? As always, we must look to Scripture, but we must also look to the motives of those who seek to unmask the pseudonymous. The answer is obvious, but many Christians — certainly to include pastors — get this one wrong.

Election in View of Headship

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

God acts in time via means. When it comes to faith, He acts through the Means of Grace. When it comes to Election, He acts through headship — fathers, grandfathers, chiefs, kings, tribes, nations. God does not act arbitrarily, and this is no less true of His actions in time than it is of His actions in eternity. Fairness plays no role in the matter, for fairness is not a thing.

Man is finite; God is infinite. There are doctrines that can be thoroughly understood, explored, and grasped, and there are doctrines that contain mystery — Election is a mystery. When it comes to the mysteries of the faith, we affirm the Word of God and then, with Paul, declare:

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!

Christian Nationalism Is Submission to God

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

You may have heard of the ‘two kingdoms’ doctrine and have certainly heard of the ‘separation of Church and State’, but is either of these a truly Christian position? Is God Lord only of His Church or does He also rule the kingdoms of this world? As Christians, what are our duties in the context of the State?

The Media, and many others, have spent years, now, shouting about “Christian Nationalism”, but few could even define either term. This episode is both a primer on Christian Nationalism from a Christian perspective and the definitive statement of its core nature. Christian Nationalism is simply Christianity lived out in the left-hand kingdom, for both kingdoms belong to Christ.

According to Their Generations

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

Most modern Christians have bought into the cultural argument that the provenance of ideas does not matter, but this is not the Scriptural view of things. God is deeply interested in genealogy — and that includes the genealogy of ideas — and Christians should take the matter seriously. Ideas, beliefs, et cetera, should not be analyzed in a vacuum — they should be analyzed according to their nature and according to their source.

In this episode, we address a number of related issues including genealogy, ideas, the genealogy of ideas, ancestry, the Fourth Commandment, and morality.

Talking Heads: On Headship, Teaching, and Women in the Church

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

Some issues arise in time, some issues fade with time, and some issues are perennial. That which is founded in the nature of Creation, which flows from the nature of God, never ceases to be relevant to His Church, to His people. The issues of headship, teaching, and authority are perennial issues, and they often arise in the context of the relationship of men and women and the role of women in the Church or in the churches.

In this episode, we address the Scriptural and the ontological with regard to authority, headship, teaching, and the role of women — both in the Church and in the Christian life.
