PODCAST: Episode #5 - Who Am I? Where Am I? And Am I Working Hard Or Hardly Working!?!

Please make some time to check out yesterday'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 (John 3:16; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8-9).

If I can help myself learn His 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 (Jude 1:3).

Either way, Christ will add to His Church as He wills -- with or without me -- and it will be all to His credit for His glory, honor, and praise and not mine whatsoever (John 6:44; John 3:8; 1 Corinthians 3:7).

Once again, "Mr. Technical Difficulties" crashed the show within the first few minutes as we had about 3-5 minutes of "dead air" while I scrambled to try and figure out why BlogTalkRadio didn't want to talk to Skype (sorry about that, folks). Later, "Mr. Human Error" dropped by too as we completely left out the "Prayers And Patristic Quotes" portion of the program too! Ugh!

I think I'm going to start experimenting with tweaking the format a bit. I know that "Imitation Is The Sincerest Form of Flattery" but I don't want to sound exactly like all the other popular podcasts out there that we all listen to.

I'm thinking about requesting some interviews with some Lutheran Pastors and authors since I think having a layman like me be able to ask them so questions we all have might be compelling content. Who knows, maybe I'll come up with a "roundtable" of sorts made up of other layman like me who are interested in discussing Lutheran doctrine and theology too.

At the end of the day, I just want the confession of faith and the information you hear on this show to be accurate and, above all, faithful to God's Word and our Confessions. Let me know what you think, especially if you have some ideas too or would like to be a part of a future podcast.

Please make a note to bookmark and/or check out A Lutheran Layman on BlogTalkRadio each week where you can listen LIVE or access the Archive to listen via streaming ot to download an MP3 File for use on your Mobile Device.

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. I can't stress this enough since I would love to get some feedback from those of you who have tuned in.

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 our Confessions and 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. Finally, you might discover that some of the earlier pieces I wrote on this blog definitely fall into that category since I was a Lutheran-In-Name-Only at the time and was completely oblivious to the fact that a "Book of Concord" containing our Confessions even existed. I decided to leave those published posts up only because we now have this disclaimer and only to demonstrate the continuing work of Christ and the Holy Spirit in my life. Thank you for stopping by and 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 and social media 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 sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training 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 arrive at the truth of God's Word (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!
