CCF Episode Twenty-One: The Gospel According to the 1689

CredoCovPodcastMaster

In this episode, Billy and JD sit down to discuss the gospel as it is summarized in The Baptist Confession.

MP3 Download | stream:

There is a chapter in The Baptist Confession called “Of the Gospel and the Extent of the Grace Thereof.” Quite a mouthful, ay? Anyway, I just wanted to make note of it, since we really didn’t take time to explore it in this episode. It’s there. Perhaps the reason we don’t spend a whole lot of time on discussing that one chapter is because we see it primarily as functioning as a type of summary of the confession itself, insofar as the confession is a summary of the gospel and its implications. Anyway, if you’d like more reading on this chapter, check this out from Dr. Bob Gonzales:

This chapter on “the gospel” is not found in the Westminster Confession. The Congregationalists added this chapter to the Savoy Declaration, and the Baptists incorporated it into their Confession.” Read more…

Earlier today, I posted the podcast for this week, but not really. The file I embedded was the one from two weeks ago. However, if you listened to that one (Christianity and the Arts, Part One), it should serve as a good refresher before listening to this week’s episode: Part Two. Enjoy.

In this episode, Billy and JD sit down to discuss movies, Christian liberty, and paintings. Featuring audio excerpts from the motion pictures Chariots of FireOctober Baby, and Bella.

CCF Episode Seventeen: Memorial Day Special

CredoCovPodcastMaster

On this special Memorial Day episode, Billy and JD sit down to discuss various topics pertaining to Memorial Day and the church.

I have two uncles and a grandfather who retired from the U.S. Air Force. I myself served for eight years as a medic in the U.S. Army Reserve, deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2003 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2008. My great grandfather, William Frederick “Bill” Leonhart, was a medic in the U.S. Army and was deployed in service of his country in World War I. Needless to say, Memorial Day holds a special place in my heart.

In this podcast, we seek to answer some of the tough questions facing Christians regarding military service and the church. We by no means cover all the bases. However, we do try to deal with the topics in such a way as to honor both God and our troops. We hope you enjoy this discussion, as we enjoyed having it.

Before God sovereignly intervened in my life and released me from my bondage to sin, I had come to adopt a fairly antinomiam lifestyle. I lived by the seat of my pants, sinning at will while still claiming to be a Christian. At one point I recall reacting with cold indifference when a girl told me that, were she to find that she was pregnant, she would get an abortion. I just sat there silent like, That’s your choice. She never did discover that she was pregnant, and she never went through with an abortion, but that was one of the most regretful moments of my life. Even then, I was of the conviction that abortion was wrong. I believed that guys who silently stood by as their girlfriends made such a heart-wrenching decision were complete jerks. In that moment, I learned that I was in no place to judge them.

This podcast is not meant to be taken as a judgment upon those who are facing the incredible decision our society offers them in abortion. We certainly believe that the Bible is clear that abortion is murder. However, we also believe that there are lasting results of abortion. Women and men who have stood close to the fire on this issue often come away from it with much guilt and shame. We don’t want to simply dismiss that guilt and that shame as unwarranted. It is warranted, because we will all have to stand before God on judgment day and give an account for the things we’ve done. However, there is forgiveness and healing at the cross.

When Christ died on the cross, two thousand years ago, He took upon Himself the wrath that you and I deserve for our sins. He took the punishment deserved by sinful men. Christ, the only sinless man to ever have existed, paid the penalty for sin. In doing so, He secured reconciliation for God and His sheep. We would encourage you today, in light of God’s great mercy and forgiveness, to turn from your sins toward the God of love and mercy, and put your faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. If you do that today, your sins will be cast as far away from you as the East is from the West. When God looks at you, He will no longer see your sin and misery, but He will see the perfect righteousness of His Son Jesus Christ. Please consider these things today, and let us know how this podcast impacted you.

Emily’s Abortion Video


Rape case referred to toward the beginning of podcast.

“‘I did what I was supposed to do. I went to the law about this situation,’ she said. The judge’s probation sentence and the removal of the restrictions — ‘that says everything I went through was for nothing. It would have been better for me not to say anything,’ said the girl, who is not being identified because The Dallas Morning News does not typically identify victims of sex crimes.”
