PODCAST: Episode #4 - Things Christians Say (But Shouldn't)

Please make some time to check out tonight's podcast on BlogTalkRadio.

No, the world doesn’t need to hear another podcast, but it does need to hear the simplicity of the Gospel, or Christ crucified for the sins of all mankind.

If I help myself learn the truth while using Social Media to promote the Lutheran faith and its profound differences over and above any others, then that's just a bonus.

Either way, Christ will build His Church as He wills with or without me.





Online Christianity Radio at Blog Talk Radio with Just A Lutheran Layman on BlogTalkRadio



[Episode #4] Please join us for our next broadcast of A Lutheran Layman where we'll spend some time discussing the following (in no particular order) in an episode we're calling "Things Christians Say (But Shouldn't)"...

* "Prayers And Patristic Quotes"
A Prayer from my Lutheran Book of Prayer and a quote from C.F.W. Walther to help set the tone...

* "Homilies, Sermons, And Bible Readings Oh My!"
A new feature! Today, we take a look at a 2007 piece written by Pastor Todd Wilken from Issues, Etc. titled "Things Christians Say (But Shouldn't): How Christian Cliches Show And Shape What They Really Believe" and if you're anything like me, then you'll cringe once you realize how many cliches come out of our mouths that we never think about, but that are certainly un-Biblical. (CHRISTIAN CLICHES: "WWJD?"/"What Would Jesus Do?"; "The J-Word"; "Selling Books To Christians: The Gerund"; "The 'Person' In 'Personal'"; "Jesus, Be My Valentine!"; "Works, Not Faith"; "A Church Of, By, And For...Boomers"; "The Pattern of Sound Words")

Of course, we'll take your comments, questions, and prayer requests on-air as time permits. You can send me your questions or comments to: info@lutheranlayman.com or @LutheranLayman

It was a spur of the moment decision to record this one tonight. I was feeling bad that I couldn't get a podcast out earlier this week as planned so I wanted to at least give you something.

Ultimately, this one is shorter than normal and it's focused on a subject I think most people would have an interest in. Let me know what you think!

Please make a note to check out A Lutheran Layman on BlogTalkRadio each week.

Do feel free to contact me to let me know what you think (especially if it's to correct me on my handling of God's Word and in confessing the Lutheran faith) or to suggest future show ideas.

In a Lutheran Layman's terms, may this humble podcast be used for God's glory and your edification (Philippians 3:3; Romans 15:17; Galatians 6:14; 2 Timothy 2:15; 2 Timothy 4:2; Jude 1:3; Galatians 2:5; 1 Corinthians 3:7).


[NOTE: As you know, I am a newly converted Confessional Lutheran who recently escaped American Evangelicalism. That being said, please contact me ASAP if you believe that any of my "old beliefs" seem to have crept their way into any of the material you see published here, and especially if any of the content is not consistent with Lutheran doctrine -- in other words, if it's not consistent with God's Word -- so that I can correct those errors immediately and not lead any of His little ones astray. Thank you in advance for your time and help. Grace and peace to you and yours!]

Thank you for visiting A Lutheran Layman! Please feel free to leave a comment or a question since we do not exercise censorship. We've seen a similar policy with other blogs and it's worth repeating: Please act as if you're a guest in my home, and we'll get along just fine. I think anyone would agree that the kind of back-and-forth that is characteristic of blogs/chat forums is becoming tiresome for all of us. Still, we should confess, edify, and love (and contend and defend when needed). Bottom line? Search the Scriptures! Apply Acts 17:11 to anything and everything you find here and, if you do happen to disagree with something you find here (which is certainly ok), or think I'm "irresponsible" and "wrong" for writing it, then please refute my position by supporting yours with...Scripture and/or the Confessions. I don't think that's an unreasonable request, especially for those who identify themselves as "Christians" here, right? Besides, Proverbs 27:17 tells us "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." If you have an opinion that's great, I welcome it, but try to support it using God's Word. I mean, if the goal here is to help us all mature spiritually (myself included) then it should be easy to follow through on this one simple request (I'm talking to all you "Anonymous" visitors out there). Grace and peace to you and yours!
