The First Commandment: The Voice of God Himself

The First Commandment: The Voice of God Himself

We’re officially underway with our series on the Ten Commandments. In this first episode, Joe Boot explains why this section of Scripture begins with the Lord declaring who He is, and why the commandments are ordered in the way that they are. If you’ve never thought about what our worship has to do with law, don’t miss this one.

Writing His Law on Our Hearts

Writing His Law on Our Hearts

In this episode Joe Boot pulls illustrations from throughout Scripture to demonstrate the enduring validity of God’s law in the era of Christ’s resurrection. If Christ took the law seriously, and if we are to be imitators of Him, then it behooves us to take the law seriously as well.

Prayer Changes Things

Prayer Changes Things

The Bible spills over with truth about prayer. The mere preponderance of prayer in Scripture suggests it is a matter to which we Christians should devote serious attention

The Beauty of the Ethical Life

The Beauty of the Ethical Life

We’re kicking off the new year with a new series, dealing with ethics and law generally, and the Ten Commandments specifically. In this episode, Joe Boot talks about the distinction between laws and norms, the fact that we live in a universe designed by God that is made to work according to His instruction, and what love has to do with fulfilling the law.

Religious Environmentalism at the Mission of God Conference

Religious Environmentalism at the Mission of God Conference

On this episode Joe Boot and Ezra Institute Fellow Aaron Rock discuss the themes, issues, and ideologies related to the contemporary environmentalism movement. For those who didn’t get their questions answered during the conference Q&A session, we deal with several more of those questions here.

Aquinas Wrap-up

Aquinas Wrap-up

We bring our series in Thomas Aquinas to a close by restating six significant differences between Thomistic thought and the reformation worldview that we believe is more consistent with Scripture. On the question of origins, nature and grace, ontology and anthropology, apologetics and Christian philosophy, the medieval thought of Aquinas falls short of the biblical position.
