When is a “Controversy” Lame?



There’s this “controversy” that goes around in Lutheran Circles about Third Use of the Law. Pastor Gary believes the whole debate is framed wrong from the start, so he’s going to give his perspective on it.

Also,

 

Jim Bakker gets a word of knowledge about presidential hitmen, Jesse Duplantis believes God for more mindless followers, Paige Patterson sees the light and it’s showing him to the exit, and Radical Grace can’t take sides when the controversy’s lame on Radical Grace Radio.

The Bad News



The Lutheran Church –Missouri Synod manages to break into the news this week, Bill Hybels, as much as he tries, can’t break out of the news, CBS’ idea of Living Biblically just can’t get a break, and that’s probably a good thing, but we break bad news when we have to here at Radical Grace Radio.

Jesus Fandom Needs to Die



Jesus Fandom.

That idea has come up a few times in different Christian Circles, Meaning that there are people out there that treat the faith like it’s a fan club to join rather than a faith to follow. But I think Pastor has correctly identified how people who complain about “Jesus Fans” are themselves guilty of being fans of Jesus rather than “true followers” of Jesus.

Also…

Larycia Hawkins remembered in perpetuity at Wheaton, Pope Francis does something popes generally just don’t do, Forgetfulness not specifically an American problem, but when we forget, we forget big stuff, and Jesus fans might not like what we have to say today on Radical Grace Radio.

The Offensive Friendships of Jesus



Our Lord and Savior had many Scandalous friendships. Women hung around with him. Tax collectors did to. Actually, pretty much everyone who followed Jesus was painted with the term “sinner” no matter what. We examine this, and we see how the News rolls with…

Snoop Dogg under fire for releasing gospel music album, church discipline not so much a thing anymore for American pastors, journalistic integrity not so much a thing ever at Liberty University, and we question Jesus’ choice of friends today on Radical Grace Radio.

Easter Unfolds and Offends

Easter Unfolds and Offends



Christ on the Cross Meme

Pastor wants to remind everyone that, Like Christmastide, Easter is not over yet. As a such, we have to unfold the Gospel continually, and talk about how Facebook hates Crucifixion violence.

McChurch found people will pay for nuggets with Apple Pay, Stun Guns found useful for increasing church attendance, Italian atheist found unable to comprehend conversational language, and we’ve found Easter drives the rest of our theology here at RGR
