On today's program, I spent the entire hour giving a defense of infant baptism. I went through the outline I used at a recent Bible study for my congregation. This was purposefully at a lay level, so please send this one to your baptist friends!

On today's program, I was joined once again by Rev. Lewis Polzin to continue our discussion of Henry Eyster Jacobs' book A Summary of the Christian Faith.

On today's program I finished my response to James White's article "A Brief Rebuttal of Baptismal Regeneration." I discussed Acts 2:38 and the meaning of baptism "for the remission of sins," as well as the washing away of sins in Acts 22:16. We continued to demonstrate the false dichotomy presented by White regarding the efficacy of the cross and baptismal regeneration, and addressed his closing remarks in the essay.

On today's program I responded to a recent post by Tim Challies in which he argued that Protestants should not wear crucifixes. He did this by citing J.I. Packer's book Knowing God. I demonstrate the flaws in Packer's argument, and talk about the usefulness of crucifixes.

On today's program, I was joined again by Rev. Lewis Polzin to continue our discussion of Henry Eyster Jacobs' book A Summary of the Christian Faith. We discussed three chapters about the threefold office of Christ: prophet, priest, and king. Unfortunately, my audio file got messed up, so the sound quality is not great.
