How Lutherans View the Mosaic Law

Today's program was an eclectic one. I answered listener questions on a variety of topics. First, I answered a question regarding divine monergism and Luther's work The Bondage of the Will. I then spent the majority of the program discussing the validity of the Mosaic Law for Christians today. I discussed the threefold distinction of the Law and the connection between natural law and the Ten Commandments. Finally I got into a discussion about soteriology in the church fathers, dealing specifically with penance and legalism in the North African Church.

Here is the program

Dialogue with Reformed Baptist Pastor Jeffrey Johnson

I recently was interviewed on the Confessing Baptist podcast alongside of Reformed Baptist pastor Jeffrey Johnson. We discussed the nature of baptism, its relationship to regeneration, and the assurance of salvation. It's worth your time to listen if you would like to hear a respectful and informative dialogue between these two theological and pastoral approaches.
