Episode 17 – 1st John 3:3-24

We finished chapter 3 of 1st John.  During the Inquisition Pastor was asked to talk about the “myth of the golden age”, as we might call it.  Thomas gave his thoughts on underserved populations in Christian apologetics.

Sermon: Luke 14:1-11 (September 22nd, 2013)

CountJoySermons

The Sermon Hymn (“Seek Where You May to Find a Way”) and Sermon* (Luke 14:1-11) for the 17th Sunday after Trinity at Zion Lutheran Church in Lahoma, OK.

Sermon 8: Luke 14:1-11 (September 22, 2013)

Note: We are trying to achieve a better sound quality on these recordings, but this means not using Pastor’s mic headset and instead setting up a mic at the pulpit.  As a result, since he does the Scripture readings at the lectern and not the pulpit, we aren’t able to get the readings recorded.  Therefore we’re changing the format a little bit to incorporate the sermon hymn instead.  Future weeks might be bring further changes – but thanks for hanging in there with us!

A Link to the Post: An American Drubbing (addressing American exceptionalism)

Doug Wilson has some good words today on the issue of “American exceptionalism” – a phrase that has seen much play since Russian president Putin’s op ed last week.  It’s full of salient points like the following:

“The exceptional things we have (in truth) been given can be counted as blessings from the hand of the only true God, who requires us to name Him as the only source of any such blessings. The quite ordinary conceit we have displayed, sharing it with Ozymandias, is our refusal to do so. The longer we have gone on in this vein the more the sham has become apparent. Is America exceptional? Well, why don’t you ask one of the millions of Americans who were chopped up in little pieces in the womb because the ghouls on our highest Court found the right to such wickedness hiding under a penumbra? Is America exceptional? Well, the reply comes back from the dead child. ‘I really am not in a position to know . . .'”
