Reformed and Lutheran views of Infant Baptism

I discussed a number of topics on today's program. I spent the first half hour talking about the Reformed covenantal argument for infant baptism, and how we should approach this subject. I then answered a listener question about people who are called "righteous," and "blameless" in the Old Covenant. Finally, I addressed the Church of Christ's view of baptism.

Here is the program.

The Imputation of Christ's Active Obedience

On today's program I gave some updates regarding upcoming projects, and then intended to answer a number of listener questions, but ended up spending the entire program discussing the imputation of Christ's active obedience. I discussed whether this is a Lutheran doctrine, and what texts should and shouldn't be used to support this teaching.

New Look to the Website

I have made some changes to The site looks much cleaner, and there is now an easy way to use a blog on a Wix website. The front page of that site is now going to be a blog. For a while I will be posting both here and on the other site, but eventually I will be using that blog exclusively. Just a heads up.

I review of ten minute segment of a Paul Washer sermon which demonstrates his dependence on this view of Christian conversion, and discussed the danger inherent in this approach.
