WHI-947 | Smooth Talk & Flattery

The Apostle Paul warns us in Romans 16:18 that by the use of “smooth talk and flattery” false teachers will “deceive the minds of naive people.” But has the contemporary church heeded Paul’s warning in this regard? That’s what’s on tap this week on the White Horse Inn. (Originally broadcast on Nov. 19th, 2006)

WHI-945 | Christ The Center of Scripture

Is the Bible primarily a handbook for living a happy, moral lifestyle? Or perhaps its best understood as a how-to manual showing us how to fix various problems in life? On this program the White Horse Inn hosts offer their critiques of these and other related views as they make the case that the Bible is primarily about the story of redemption through Christ. (Originally broadcast on May 8th, 2005)

WHI-942 | Biblical Ignorance

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)

WHI-941 | Gospel Driven

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.

WHI-940 | If Christ is Not Risen

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.

WHI-939 | Spiritual Gifts

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.

WHI-938 | Word & Sacrament Ministry

For the past few weeks the hosts have been discussing some of the highlights of First Corinthians in order to see how Paul preached the gospel of Christ in a Pre-Christian culture. But in this program the focus centers not on preaching, but rather on receiving Christ in the Lord’s Supper. How are we to understand what is happening in this meal, and why is it such an important issue for Paul? That’s what’s on tap this week on the White Horse Inn.
