Family Discussion is back for a super-sized bonus episode! Lisa and Marcos interview a long-time PCA member and Ruling Elder about the challenges facing people of color in Reformed denominations, and why many have decided to stay rather than leave. This episode adds an important perspective to ongoing race and justice conversations in Reformed and evangelical circles.
After a break for Holy Week, Family Discussion is back for their Season 3 Finale! Lisa and Marcos reflect on the year that's passed before considering the impact our cultural blinders have on the right reading of Scripture. We hope you've enjoyed this season, and we'll be back again very soon!
In this week's episode, Lisa and Marcos discuss why knowing the contexts of the writers of Scripture can help us interpret rightly. Why do these original contexts matter? What can happen when we ignore the context? How does application change when context is considered?
Lisa and Marcos continue discussing special revelation by asking, "What is the Story of the Bible"? How we read the main story of the Bible can impact how we apply that story to our current context. Listen in to this clarifying discussion.
Lisa and Marcos continue their journey through systematic theology and justice by taking a look at the Bible. Does Special Revelation extend beyond the Bible? What does understanding the Bible as Special Revelation mean for us as we wrestle through the issues of today?
Lisa and Marcos use the current CRT controversies as a test case for this question: How do we understand the limits of general revelation when studied apart from Scripture? Are there limits to this knowledge? How do we make sure we stay on track, particularly when controversy erupts in a "common grace field" like sociology?
Lisa and Marcos take a break from their discussions of social justice to address the horrific reports of abuse perpetrated by Ravi Zacharias and the dysfunction at Hillsong Church. Does American Evangelicalism have a future? Pull up a chair for this important Family Discussion.
Whenever Christians talk about Justice, they need to ask about the Justice of God. What does it mean that God is "Just"? What kinds of justice are in the Bible and how can Christians apply them today? Lisa and Marcos continue their systematic look at contentious issues.
