In our own informal surveys conducted over the years, the majority Christians we’ve interviewed cannot name the Ten Commandments or define crucial biblical doctrines such as justification or imputation. So why is biblical ignorance so common among Christians today? That’s our discussion on this edition of The White Horse Inn (Originally Broadcast April 1, 2007)
Entries for April, 2009
On this edition of the White Horse Inn the hosts offer some concluding observations to their study of 1st Corinthians, and briefly discuss some of the issues raised by Paul in his 2nd epistle to the Corinthian church, focusing in particular on the importance of being gospel-centered in all of life, in all our preaching, and in how we approach Christian ministry.
In the middle of the first century the Apostle Paul boldly asserted that “If Christ is not risen…your faith is in vain.” But many Christians today have turned from this objective and historical approach to a more personal and subjective experience of Christ, as expressed in the lyrics of the popular hymn, “You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.” On this edition of the White Horse Inn the hosts arrive at First Corinthians chapter 15 and discuss the importance and historical reliability of Christ’s bodily resurrection.
Continuing their brief series through 1st Corinthians, the hosts discuss the subject of spiritual gifts as found in chapters 12-13. Are the gifts for today, and if so how are we to understand them? What about prophecy, words of knowledge, and the gift of tongues? These and many other issues will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn.
