Recorded while at an Air BnB in Munich, Germany. We are jet lagged, I apologize. Talks about the little bit of European culture we experienced, then it pretty much goes off the rails from there. — tbh you can pry skip this ep.
We open up with some chats on rapture theology. We are joined by the Dutch sister, Allison Mooibroek, as we venture into the intersection of psychology and our faith. (Also Ryan, Luke hates you)
Josh drops some big news on this ep! Dutch Bros also converse about Disney stars/Gossip Girl, Limited Atonement (s/o TULIP fam), Josh shares some things from a book on Marriage by Timmy K.
“This is the question of Romans 8: ‘Is the Gospel of Jesus Christ really strong enough to hold me, to keep me, right to the very end?'”
Dr. Sinclair Ferguson
“The Law enslaves me. The Law kills me because the law is a mirror of my sin, and it drives me to the cross. It drives me to grace. That is what Paul is talking about here.”
“The good man, though a slave, is free; the wicked, though he reins, is a slave, and not the slave of a single man, but – what is worse – the slave of as many masters as he has vices.”
St. Augustine of Hippo
“In human affairs a representative is not a substitute. Whereas a substitute takes our place, a representative acts on our behalf, and so makes us present where we cannot personally be. But Christ is both. He always has represented and always shall represent his people before the face of God, the throne of grace and the judgment seat. He stands for us, and we are present in him. This means we are chosen in him, accepted in him, righteous in him, glorious in him. Whatever he is before God, he is for us. And so we are complete in him.”
John M. Brentnall
“It’s not great faith that you need; it is faith in a Great God.”
“You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.”
