After asking listeners what they wanted to hear about this week, several people asked about the structure of the church in Lutheranism. I decided to focus on this as I spoke about church polity in Lutheranism and the New Testament. I also spent a significant portion of the program discussing the office of bishop.

On today's program, I discussed presuppositional apologetics. I responded to some recent comments from Dr. Scott Oliphant on the subject which were highly critical of the classical method. I examined the method of Lutheran dogmaticians in reaction to these models.
