On today's program I was joined again by Rev. Lewis Polzin of Trinity Lutheran Church in Bemidji, MN to continue discussing Henry Eyster Jacobs' book A Summary of the Christian Faith. We discussed chapter VI on the Angels. We talked about common misperceptions about angels, the purpose of angels, demon possession, and many more topics.

On today's program I discussed the doctrine of election and the debates over the subject which have existed in Lutheranism since the nineteenth century. I tried to show that there are four different positions which have been held among Lutherans, and that holding to intuitu fidei (though wrong) does not necessarily make one a synergist.

I spent the program answering listener questions, addressing a number of topics. I discussed speech-act theory, the difference between Lutheran and Reformed approaches to union with Christ, the continual nature of justification, and the use of prayer beads.
