Thank you from the Staff of the White Horse Inn
All of the staff at the White Horse Inn would like to take a moment and thank all our listeners and supporters! Our vision is to see a rediscovery of Reformation theology in the context of contemporary Christian thought and practice. We exist to persuade Christians to inform and embrace Reformation Theology - we want you to "know what you believe and why you believe it." We are encouraged we are making a difference when we receive letters like these:
From: Pastor Charles
To: staff *at* whitehorseinn
Subject: Thank you for your ministry
To Whom it May Concern;
I wanted to let the fellows know who speak on the White Horse Inn podcast that I truly appreciate their topic of discussing faith alone and justification over the last few months. I am a pastor of a church and have had to deal with an individual who continually challenges the doctrine of justification by faith alone.
Listening to your podcast has shored up my understanding of this important doctrine and was very timely to help me once again cement clearly in my mind the value of justification, especially the imputed righteousness of Christ. I would not call myself reformed theologically, but I hold firmly to the biblical definition of justification by faith alone and the value of continually looking to the amazing grace of Christ as our sole provider of relationship with God and the motivation to live for Christ on a daily basis.
May God richly bless you as you continue to remind us in the church to hold fast to the fundamental teachings of the faith that enable us to know and live for God.
Dear Mike, "Dad" Rod, Ken & Kim,
I've been a listener since 1997 when you were on 1100 AM KFAX S.F. CA. At that time I was in the Found and Lost Basket of confused converts. Then I said to myself one day after work I said "self" turn on the radio and see (hear) some more Christian Confusion or in the Greek - bologna-and alas I hear Rod's voice saying we don't know where to send people to hear God's word being rightly divided." Instantly my ears perked up. He was speaking about The Law and The Gospel. It was a Sunday and your show was 15 min. from 3:00 pm to 3:15, I couldn't wait until next Sunday so I called the phone number given and still have the cassette series 2 tapes one Mike and the other Rod entitled The Law and The Gospel. At that time I wasn't even attending a church. Being born and raised Roman Catholic then born again in an Assembly of God Church that I now term a Partial Birth Abortion ReBirth. You know The Toungues Thing. Law, Gospel, Law, or Law, Gospel, Tongues then your in. I even tried faking tongues LA LALA Shala him to LA boob A LA. I even found myself laying on the floor in front of the pulpit after a voice of a man behind me said "don't worry we'll catch you" as I resisted the push of the pastor. So when I got your tape series I listened to them over and over...And with Luther I can say as I read my Bible, Romans and Galatians, the Gospel leaped off the pages, and the Gates of Heaven opened and I entered in. I still have those tapes and many more from these years, and grace was revealed to me. But I tested it! I took the ball and ran towards Hell. Fell back into every sin I had during and before grace, and then some. I spent 5 yrs plus "In Vegas" not just a weekend as you (Mike) joked about the prodigal son did. I said "How about this God? Do you love me now? Yes? Well then how about this? Do you love me now? Yes! For years I tested Lord thy God and the answer kept coming back "Yes I still love you Mark."
Well what else could I do but start loving him back. As Rod said when we focus on growth and maturity we get worser (bad grammar I know but that's how I talk. I don't spill good either). But as Rod said and I've learned to be true that if we focus on the cross, when we're not looking some growth and maturity comes. So after God passed my test (if I dare say) I told myself I said "self" I think I can go back to a church again now that I know the truth. I've tried almost all of them and I can agree with Kim when he said that it's hard to tell who's in the zoo. I guess I'll call myself a Roman Presbacostal Bapto-lic-Reformed! ... Mike, on one of the CD's I have (being an Innkeeper) a gal called the show Ioda was her name ( I hope I spilled it right). But she critisized you guys saying something to the affect of "Instead of critiqueing the bad preaching of todays churches why aren't you guys just preaching", and you said "because this isn't a church, this is not where you come to get your food." Well Mike I have to agree that the White Horse Inn is not a church but it's the only place I have to get fed... thank you and your co hosts for your boldness in speaking out against today's American heresies and pharisies, protestant Liberalists, pragmatists, palageonism, and the rest. The world needs W.H.I... I hope to meet and perhaps even study under your guidance some day at Westminster Seminary.
