This episode of Theology Simply Profound brings our reading of J. Gresham Machen’s final three audio addresses to a close. This address, “The Bible and the Cross,” would have aired on December 27, 1936. Machen would not finish this series of radio addresses on the atonement. Just five days later on January 1, 1937, he would succumb to pneumonia dying in the Lord.
And so, this series closes so abruptly as life seems to do so very often. With the words, “Isn’t the Reformed faith grand?” and “So thankful for active obedience of Christ. No hope without it,” Machen departed in peace.
This week’s Theology Simply Profound provides another reading from the works of J. Gresham Machen. Since we’ve begun a series on the Biblical teaching of the atonement, Bob is reading Machen’s, “The Active Obedience of Christ.” This was delivered on December 20, 1936 as part of a series of radio addresses given shortly before Machen’s death on January 1, 1937
This week on Theology Simply Profound, Rob and Bob continue their new series of discussions on the doctrine of the atonement. In this episode we talk about the concept of redemption. What is redemption? What is the relationship between redemption and the wrath of God? What is the cost of redemption? How does redemption relate to atonement?
With Rob nursing a cold, this week’s Theology Simply Profound provides another reading from the works of J. Gresham Machen. Since we’ve begun a series on the Biblical teaching of the atonement, Bob is reading Machen’s, “The Doctrine of the Atonement.” This was from a series of radio addresses given shortly before Machen’s death on January 1, 1937.
This week on Theology Simply Profound, Rob and Bob begin a new series of discussions on the topic of the atonement. In this episode we talk about the wrath of God and mankind’s need for an escape from the wrath of God in the first place. Why an atonement? Why is there a need for an atonement?
The Rev. Brian L. De Jong, pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, joins Bob and Rob this week on Theology Simply Profound to discuss his new book, Honoring the Elderly: A Christian’s Duty to Aging Parents. Mr. De Jong explains the importance of thinking through difficult and complex issues related to how Christians are to honor their aging parents.
We are glad for this opportunity to present ourselves to you, and we very much hope you will come to one of our services so that we can get to know you face-to-face. Westminster is a congregation of people of all ages and various walks of life who are finding out just how good it is to be in a relationship with Jesus Christ. We are all imperfect people, and Westminster certainly is no perfect church. But since we are put right with God through Jesus’ actions and not our own, we can admit our imperfections and accept each other as we are. Step by step, we are making our way by grace toward a celestial city that makes our dear Chicagoland at its best seem drab by comparison.
We are easy to get to, since our building is located virtually on the corner of the Stevenson (I-55) and the Tri-State (I-294)! Feel free to give us a call (708-784-9601), send us an email at info @ westminsteropc . org, or let us know if we can be of help in any particular way. We hope that the information on this site is helpful to you.
This episode of Theology Simply Profound brings our discussion of the Book of Acts to a close. Paul is under house arrest welcoming all who come to him “proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.” We discuss Paul’s arrival in Rome, his reception by the Jews, and his proclamation of the kingdom of God.
Our apologies for the poor audio quality for the first 10 minutes or so…a few technical difficulties.
On this week’s episode of Theology Simply Profound, from Acts 28, Rob and Bob discuss everything from snake handling to saving faith… in reality, the discussion lands primarily on the nature of faith. How does saving faith differ from the belief that UFOs will one day arrive to wisp the faithful away to a better place? Hmm. Essentially, is the faith of a Christian the same kind of faith we find in a cult?
