Distinctly Jesus Part 1

What did Jesus do?

Of all the people in the scriptures, both Old Testament and New, no one talks about forgiveness the way Jesus Christ, or Lord, does. He goes around forgiving sins with impunity. He forgives the sins of a paralytic before he heals him, allows a sinful woman to touch him, quite smartly prevent the stoning death of a woman caught in adultry, and like no one else he does this in such a one sided way. The Lamb of God, going around forgiving, event though HE is to be the one put to death for the sins of each person he personally forgave face to face.

Is there an Important message in Jesus’ way of doing things? Listen to this week’s Radical Grace Radio to find out.

Boxing Gloves and Fantasy Faith

Make Believe Faith vs. True Faith.

Second half of the hour, the Gloves come off concerning the Beatification of the Pope John Paul II.  AntiChristic language compared to what you get in Protestant circles.  Tridentine Catholicism compared with the Bible…  Good stuff, but in the first half, we steal back for you 1 Peter 1:3-8 from those who would steal it from you.
1Pe 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1Pe 1:4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you,
1Pe 1:5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
1Pe 1:6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
1Pe 1:7 These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
1Pe 1:8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
1Pe 1:9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Thinking with the Mind of Christ, Part 1

Which way forward Lord?

In this edition of Radical Grace Radio, we begin the topic of the year, thinking with the mind of Christ, by first setting up some ground rules. Number 1: Remember you’re law and gospel distinction. Number 2: Remember that Jesus isn’t just a cardboard cutout that people bend and mangle to make him fit their image of him. He’s a real person, both man and God. He has a mind, just like you do, and he thinks with that mind and brain using synapses and neural pathways just like you do.

Radical Grace Radio: It’s not just academic anymore.

New Years Resolutions

Which way forward Lord?


It’s a new year at Radical Grace Radio. A lot of things have happened over the last few years, not the least of which is discovering what the Christian Landscape looks like. But perhaps more important is what we discovered about ourselves.

What we discovered was a couple of things in particular. One is that doing Radio and Podcasting is not as easy as it sounds. The other is that we discovered how we react to the situation. We found that we have sort of strength that comes out between us that we didn’t realize was there. We both attribute this work of God, and the next question is this: If God has worked this in the way that he has for everyone’s benefit… Where is he taking us?

That is what this episode of Radical Grace Radio is all about.

The Gift and the Defender on Radical Grace Radio

Tyrel Bramwell’s New Tome

On This edition of Radical Grace Radio, we Talk to Tyrel Bramwell about his new Book, the Gift and the Defender. As a gift to our Listeners, Tyrel has set up a coupon for 50 percent off of any eBook version of the book, which would include text versions, the Kindel version, the Nook version… pretty much any version you could imagine.

We also read some of the responses we’re getting about a question I posted on facebook and Christianity.com. “What are the minimum conditions a person must meet in order to be saved?” We also Talk about a former Military Man who has been arrested for stalking members of Westboro Baptist Church. Ryan Newell lost his legs in Afghanistan to an IED, and members of Westboro Baptist now plan to picket the Elizabeth Edwards funeral, as well as the police station that Newell was set free from last week.
