ELCA decides: Abandon God’s Word

The ELCA turns it back on God

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the most liberal Lutheran Church Body in the United States, has voted to abandon the Word of God and support both Same Sex Marriage and Rostered Gay Clergy. In this edition of Radical Grace Race, we talk about the ramifications of this move, about how the media has portrayed Lutherans during this point in history, and how an incident with a Tornado that struck the Convention Center where the ELCA were meeting to discuss these issues may have been a sign from God…

There is a definite sense of pain and anguish over watching this happen. How can we even begin to understand what has happened?

You’ve heard it said…

Magical Spiritual Poofle Dust

In this edition of Radical Grace Radio, Pastor Gary Held talks about how the idea of Christians being at war is misused by some Christians, for instance, how the idea of us being Christian Soldiers fighting against the culture is bolstered by the misapplication of certain Scripture.

We also begin what we hope will be a weekly segment, “You have heard it said”, where we take some statements of popular teaching of Christian Teachers today, and do what Jesus did with them on the sermon on the mount. This week it’s Pastor Michael Youssef and what he believes is the Gospel, and how “if you believe with all your heart, God can do great things”.

There’s a fight brewing at Radical Grace!

Fighting for the doctrine of the Trinity

Actually, what’s going on is we’re fighting for the doctrine of the Trinity. It’s Trinity Sunday, and we have the Athanasian Creed in mind, and it’s time to set the record straight again before the full blown Modalists get their chance to mess things up… Happily, most Modalists don’t celebrate Trinity Sunday. Strange…

God doesn’t love you in slices


In this edition of Radical Grace Radio Pastor Greg does a mean Sean Connery impersonation as he makes a great point about the love of God, and we answer an emailer who wanted to know…

There’s something which confuses me about Sola Fide. If we’re saved by
grace alone through faith alone by Christ alone on the authority of
scripture alone, why are sacraments necessary? I’m not necessarily
doubting the necessity of sacraments, I just don’t understand that if
access to salvation comes down to faith alone (sola), then how is it
alone if a sacrament must be coupled with it? Thank you in advance for
your answer.

Episode 88: The First Resurrection: Revelation 20:5

Have we partaken already of the first Resurrection?

Question of the week: Can you get a right faith from wrong doctrines? Email us at RadicalGrace@ live.com your take on this question.

Episode 87: Sowing Hatred by Teaching Doctrine?

Does teaching right doctrine cause hatred?

In this edition of Radical Grace we take time to clarify the historic position that Lutherans have confessed concerning who or what the Anti Christ is. We talk about what our confessions say, and about how this same spirit of Anti Christ exists not just in Rome in the form of the Holy See, but also in Evangelicalism, obscuring the Gospel just as much as Rome does.

Also, a caller challenges us on this, stating that we shouldn’t be sowing hatred in a time where religious hatred is rampant in the world.

Episode 86: The Unites States of the Beast?

Daniel 9

This week on Radical Grace Pastor Greg LeSeiur joins us again, and this time we talk about another part of the book of Daniel, Chapter 7 and the four beasts. Also, Pastor Gary has a very disturbing idea of what the beast of Revelation is, plus we answer a listener named Daniel who asks the question we all ask from time to time… If I’ve fallen away from Christ, can I be restored to the kingdom, or am I lost eternally?

Episode 85: The Doomsday Clock

Daniel 9: Days of Weeks of Years

This week on Radical Grace Pastor Greg LeSeiur joins us again to talk about end times. This time we struggle to find Biblical reference to a 7 year tribulation… Aaaaaand we think we found it. Plus the doomsday clock! Time is running out!
