Reclaiming the Faith

Revealing what the earliest Christians believed about the core issues facing us today.

Dr Future Pt. 2

December 11th, 2018
00:0000:00

This is part two of my interview with Dr. Michael Bennet, aka Dr. Future. In this episode, Dr. Future takes us back in time as we look at some unfortunate aspects of Church history. This is sure to be a challenging listen, so we definitely want to encourage you to hold nothing but Jesus above critique. A major storm hit my neck of the woods during the last couple of minutes of the interview, so I want to apologize for the minor technical difficulties that can be heard in that section. Dr. Future was host of the tremendously influential FutureQuake radio show, and is the author of both The Two Spies Report blog and the soon-to-be-published Holy War Chronicles: A Spiritual View of the War on Terror.

Daddy Issues & Jesus

October 9th, 2018
00:0000:00

Unfortunately, it is quite common for many of us to see God the Father through the lens of our relationship with our earthly fathers. In this audio version of Chapter 7 of my book, New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ, I demonstrate how the Scriptures call us to see God the Father through the lens of His Son, Jesus Christ, and how doing so has been transformational in my faith journey.

The Cost of Worship

September 25th, 2018
00:0000:00

Frequently said in churches throughout the United States are prayers giving thanks to God for a safe place to worship. But when was worship ever designed to be safe? Today we will be looking at the subject of worship and the correlating action of sacrifice demonstrated in the Scriptures. There is a cost to worshipping the Father in Spirit and in truth, and sacrifice is never comfortable.

Giving God’s Way

September 11th, 2018
00:0000:00

Proverbs 18:13 says, “He who gives an answer before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.” Particularly with episode 29, I want to encourage you to put this verse into practice. Today we will be looking at the subject of Biblical giving. How does the Bible define tithing? Did the early Christians teach tithing? What does giving God’s way actually look like? All these questions and more will be covered in this episode.

If/Then Jesus

August 28th, 2018
00:0000:00

Episode 28 is definitely an interesting one. I’m looking at the issue of conditional versus unconditional security of the Christian by giving an audio version of Chapter 6 of my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. Is 'once saved, always saved' actually the orthodox position of the early Church? Where did that doctrine originate? What is it that allows Christians to have tremendous security in their salvation? All these subjects and more are covered in this podcast.

God’s Manifold Grace

August 14th, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 27, we will discuss the amazing subject of grace. Just like the love of God can be both over-emphasized and under-emphasized, so too the grace of God is often both over and under-simplified. Today, I will be discussing the various ways the Koine Greek word charis (grace) is used in Scripture, and highlight a few ways the early Christians used charis in their writings.

By way of housekeeping, at the end of every episode of RTF, I include an original song. I pray those have been a blessing to you. A few months ago I began recording a 7 song EP of original songs I’ve written over the last 5 years. This can be quite a costly endeavor, so to help cover the cost of production, I’ve created a GoFundMe Campaign. For those who contribute $20, you will receive a hard copy of the 7 song EP, plus a demo CD of acoustic versions of 5 additional songs. For those who contribute $30 or more, in addition to the EP and demo, I will include a copy of my book, New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ.

A Call to Arms

June 5th, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 22, A Call to Arms, I’ll be discussing how Christians, who are called priests of God in 1 Peter 2, are commanded to fight according to 1 Peter 4. This message will undoubtedly challenge many American traditions, so I want to ask you to prayerfully value the words of God above all other words you’ve ever heard. I want to be clear that this is not an anti-gun message, but rather, it is a call to be a Pro-Life priest of the kingdom of God.

God’s Great Deception

May 22nd, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 21 I’ll be covering the Great Deception that the Apostle Paul says God is going to bring upon certain people in the last days. We will not only look at who those people are, but we will also cover several current distortions to the Gospel that are deceiving the Church today. And finally, I’ll address a simple, yet challenging step you can begin to take today that will help you feel secure when God’s great deception finally comes upon the world.

Judas & Jesus

May 8th, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 20 I’m going to be getting back into my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. As with chapters 1-4, I’ll be giving you an audio version of Chapter 5, which is called Judas & Jesus. And here in chapter 5, I discuss how if it was prophesied that Judas would betray Jesus, did he really have a shot at having faith in Jesus and receiving eternal life? If not, what does that say about God, who supposedly so loves the world? You will discover that the early Christians’ view on the issues of God’s sovereignty and mankind’s free will are neither Calvinistic nor Arminian, yet they are absolutely biblical.

Perhaps the best example of a non-Christian being able to perform good works by God’s grace is found in the story of Cornelius in Acts 10, particularly in verses 1-4 where unregenerate Cornelius is told by an angel from God that his prayers and gifts to the poor have ascended as a memorial before God. These good deeds were clearly pleasing to God, yet Cornelius’s righteous acts could not save him.

Randy L. Maddox, Responsible Grace: John Wesley’s Practical Theology (Nashville, TN: Kingswood Books, 1994), p. 74. Maddox describes the Eastern view of the effects of the Fall: “The true significance of the Fall was our loss of the Spirit’s immediate Presence, resulting in the introduction of mortality into human life. This mortality weakened our human faculties and effaced our moral Likeness of God. Thus, the Fall did render us prone to sin, but not incapable of co-operating with God’s offer of healing. As a result, we only become guilty when we reject the offered grace of God, like Adam and Eve did.”

In 2016 I wrote a book called New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. You can find this book on Amazon, and if it’s a blessing to you, please leave an honest review there.

I’m blessed to be a part of Justen Faull’s 4thWatch Radio Networkalong with BDK of Omega Frequency, who I do a monthly Q&A show with called Ready with an answer. You can contact BDK and at Omegafrequency.com, and you can send in questions for that Q&A show there. In addition to our own channels, you can find each of our podcasts at the 4thwatch radio website (fourthwatchradio.com) or on the 4thwatch radio podcast.

Finally, the early Christian quotes I use can be found on the CD-ROM version of the Ante-Nicene Fathers. You can purchase your copy for $5 on the Scroll Publishing website.
