Thinking about the Reformation?
If you are sick of only hearing from your pastor/life-coach "How to do such and such," then you must listen to the White Horse Inn. These guys make it clear that the central message of all of scripture is Jesus Christ (Luke 24:27). The Christian message isn't simply: "How to do this or that" or "shape up!" The Gospel is that Christ fulfilled the Law on the behalf of guilty sinners.
If you are interested in the basic teachings of the reformation, look no further than the White Horse Inn. These gents not only explain Christ from all the scriptures, but also explain how scripture has been understood throughout the history of the church. The WHI makes the Law and Gospel clear, which is the most liberating news a sinner can hear. Don't pass it by!
Doctrine, Doxology, and Duty!
The White Horse Inn radio show has helped me immensely in my spiritual growth. They bring the riches of Reformed Theology to bear on the issues of today, and they stand as a clarion call to the broader evangelical church to return to the historic roots of the Reformation.
I have learned so much from just listening to these four gentlemen discuss theology and its practical implications. They each display a deep love of God, a great love of the principles of the Reformation, and a deep desire to see Christ proclaimed!
If you want to feel good or get your daily/weekly dose of schmaltz, then listen to Joel Osteen or Joyce Meyer. But if you're willing to exercise your mind and think deep about the things of God, then listen to the White Horse Inn and watch your appreciation of Jesus grow!
This is a great podcast, especially for someone who my be unfamiliar with reformed theology. The cast is excellent at clearly articulating the gospel and how to interpret the scriptures in a manner that focuses on Christ and His work done FOR us.
The one downside of the program is that it often gives listeners the advice to find a new church. They should at least prompt listeners to discuss these things with their church leadership before leaving. Program could leave the constantly complaining types feeling justified in their constant jumping from church to church.
Best podcast I know of!
