No Third Option: Two-Domain Theology, Part 2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 24, 2017
We need to believe what the New Testament says about spiritual domains. Many think the problem is lack of awareness. It is actually lack of faith in what has been revealed. That we are in the domain of Christ does not imply that we can do the miracles...

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 17, 2017

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

True Transcendence: Colossians 3:2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 3, 2017

Seek the Things Above: Colossians 3:1
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 27, 2017

Self Imposed Piety: Colossians 2:23
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 20, 2017

Do Not Submit to the Traditions of Men: Colossians 2:21-22
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 13, 2017
The dogma that was wrongly placed on the Colossians came from human traditions and evil spirits. These were strict laws that God never gave. They create a false sense of piety while leading people away from Christ.

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Victory In Christ: Colossians 2:15b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

God Wipes Out Legal Debt: Colossians 2:14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 16, 2017

Repentance and the Universal Call of the Gospel, Part 2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Dick Kuffel
Broadcast Monday, December 26, 2016

Repentance and the Universal Call of the Gospel, Part 1
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Dick Kuffel

Implications of Christian Baptism: Colossians 2:12
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 14, 2016
In church history some people have linked Colossians 2:11, 12 to infant baptism and claimed that infant baptism is the new circumcision. This ignores the key fact that Col. 2:11 is not about physical circumcision, but about the circumcision of the heart.

The Circumcision of Christ: Colossians 2:11
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

A Lavish Banquet for All Peoples: Eschatological Feasts, Part 5
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 31, 2016

OT Prophecy-The Removal of the Veil: Eschatological Feasts, Part 3
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay
Broadcast Monday, September 26, 2016

The Road to Rejection and Ascension, Part 2: Luke 9:51-56
Presented by Bob DeWaay
Broadcast Monday, September 19, 2016

The Need for Grace to Understand, Part 2: Luke 9:37-50
Presented by Bob DeWaay
Broadcast Monday, September 5, 2016
One difficulty that the disciples faced was that Jesus called Himself the Son of Man while predicting His rejection. The passage in Daniel on the Son of Man speaks of His dominion. It is a work of grace that causes anyone to believe in Christ.

Presented by Bob DeWaay
Broadcast Monday, August 29, 2016

Presented by Bob DeWaay
Broadcast Monday, August 22, 2016
In part two of this sermon, we see that the disciples do not understand the significance of what happens on the mount with Jesus. Peter wrongly wants to set up three tents of meeting. The truth is that Jesus is the One who speaks authoritatively for God.

Jesus' Identity and Mission: Luke 9:1-17

Jesus Has Power Over Sickness and Death: Luke 8:40-56

The Nature of True Devotion - Oswald Chambers, Part 2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Christians Have Been Filled: Colossians 2:10
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, June 27, 2016

The Fullness of Christ: Colossians 2:9
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, June 6, 2016

Listen to Christ, Not Human Tradition: Colossians 2:8b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Do Not Be Taken Captive: Colossians 2:8a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Avoiding Plausible but False Reasoning: Colossians 2:4,5

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 9, 2015

Reconciliation Through Christ: Colossians 1:20

Christ as the Head of the Body: Colossians 1:18a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 28, 2015
We continue to explore the doctrine of Christ from the Christ hymn in Colossians 1. Paul teaches that Christ is head of the church. One important implication of this is that we should never say to one who is part of Christs body, "I do not need you."

Christ as the True Creator of Everything: Colossians 1:16a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 31, 2015
Christ is proclaimed as the Creator of everything. People in Colossae feared bad fate caused by hostile spiritual powers. Paul's doctrine of Christ as Creator was to comfort them. In our day, people are going to the creation itself for their spirituality.

Christ as First-born Over All: Colossians 1:15b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 24, 2015
Christ is not only the image of the invisible God, but the firstborn over all. This is about Christ's preeminence. We describe what this means and that it does not imply that Christ was created. He is the eternal Creator. "First-born" implies supremacy.

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 13, 2015

God Uses Ordinary Christians Colossians 1:7,8
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, June 22, 2015
That God used Epaphras to evangelize Colossae shows that God uses ordinary Christians to spread the gospel and minister to the church. We discuss the problem of pastors who ask people to leave the church if they raise a biblical issue that disagrees with the pastor. This shows a lack of concern for the body of Christ.

The Healing of Memories or Cleansing of Conscience? Part 3
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Dick Kuffel
Broadcast Monday, June 15, 2015

Eternal Hope Through the Gospel: Colossians 1:5b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 27, 2015
Christianity teaches eternal hope in Christ. Those who despise that and think they can get all they want in the here and now are foolish. The truth of the gospel is about the forgiveness of sins, not the solving of the world's problems in this life.

Faith, Hope, and Love: Colossians 1:3b-5a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

True Christian Gratitude: Colossians 1:2-3a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 13, 2015

Boasting Only in the Cross: Galatians 6:14-15
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 16, 2015

Do Not Be Compelled by Legalists: Galatians 6:11-13
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 9, 2015
Paul was strong and forthright about rebuking the legalists addressed in Galatians. He saw them as a threat to the gospel and the well-being of the church. Whether one was circumcised or uncircumcised was of no consequence under the new covenant.

Do Not Give up on Doing Good: Galatians 6:9,10
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Sowing and Reaping: Galatians 6:8
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 23, 2015

The Danger of Mocking God: Galatians 6:7b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 16, 2015

Sowing to the Spirit: Galatians 6:6-7a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 9, 2015
We are commanded to share with those who bring sound teaching. We must discern the difference between the truth and error to know what to support. The idea of sowing and reaping is introduced.

The Greek word dokimazo_ means "to test something to see if it is genuine." This word is used in Galatians 6:4. We discuss Romans 12:2 that also uses this word. We want to know what it means to put things to the test to know God's will...

The Danger of Self-deception: Galatians 6:3
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Restoring the Fallen Brother: Galatians 6:1
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Walking in Christ by the Spirit: Galatians 5:25-26
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 5, 2015
Christians are those who live by the Spirit. This is stated by Paul by using a first class ("as is the case") conditional in the Greek. To go beyond the teaching of Christ is to leave the work of the Spirit and "go too far" (2John 9).

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 22, 2014
The fruit of the Spirit in lives of people of faith show that there is a true work of grace. Bearing fruit shows that we value life as those who bear God's image. Secular ideas devalue human life. We show that love does not mean compromising...

Fruit of the Spirit, Part 1: Galatians 5:22a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 15, 2014
We show from John 15 that the key to bearing fruit is abiding in Christ. Man-made schemes and processes cannot produce the fruit of the Spirit. Luther was right when he said so often, "The Holy Spirit comes to us through the Word."

Works of the Flesh, Part 2: Galatians 5:20b,21
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Walking in the Spirit: Galatians 5:16
Presented by
Broadcast Monday, November 17, 2014
The command to walk by the Spirit is central in the New Testament and we must understand it and take it seriously. We agree with Luther who said the Holy Spirit comes to us through the Word. We show that walking by the Spirit involves believing Gods Word, trusting what God says, and thus living in a way that displays the fruits of the Spirit.

When Christians Bite and Devour: Galatians 5:15
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 10, 2014
The commands to love God and neighbor summarize the Law. These are also the commands of Christ. The Lord Himself commands us to love one another. The result of failure to obey Christ in this matter leads to the situation where Christians bite and devour..

The Command to Love: Galatians 5:14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Paul's Imprecation Against the Wolves: Galatians 5:12
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 20, 2014

Leaven and Sabbath Laws: Galatians 5:9
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Watch out for Contrived Persuasiveness: Galatians 5:8
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 29, 2014

False Teachers Cut in on the Saints: Galatians 5:7
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

The Hope of Righteousness: Galatians 5:5
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 25, 2014
Paul speaks of our future hope of righteousness though we already have the righteousness of Christ. On the final judgment, God will announce publicly what the verdict it. Those who have justification because of faith in Christ will be announced as justified before the whole world. We show the firm relationship between hope and the promises of God. Preachers need to put the promises of God before the people so they will think more biblically. We also discuss the fact that these truths apply to all believers no matter what their cultural background.

Beware False Law-givers: Galatians 5:1, Part 2

Believing the Promises of God - Galatians 4:24-26
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 14, 2014
The story of Sarah and Hagar shows the issues of walking in the flesh or walking in the Spirit. We show from Scripture why the issue of the promise of God is so important. God uses the message of the gospel to save those who will believe. That is His promise. It is critical to identify what is or is not the promise of God.

Finding Valid Promises in Scripture Alone: Galatians 4:21-23

Broadcast Monday, July 7, 2014
The Law (Scripture) teaches justification by faith. We discuss the popular tendency to look to mystical practices in church history rather than to Scripture to validate ones practices.

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, June 30, 2014
Paul had tender affection for the Galatian Christians, but they were listening to false teachers. We need encouragement from the gospel to keep us from going back to law-works. We discuss why Paul was so harsh with false teachers. False teaching must be corrected and not allowed to harm the Lords flock.

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, June 16, 2014
Because we live in a fallen world, there are always problems which can leave Christians with a sense of dissatisfaction. False teachers claim they have the solution to this dissatisfaction, which is usually more law-works. We need to stay gospel-centric.

Receiving Those who Bring the Gospel: Galatians 4:14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

The Importance of the Doctrine of Christ: Galatians 4:13
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, May 26, 2014

Free from Law Works but Under the Law of Christ: Galatians 4:12
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Known By God: Galatians 4:8-9a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Redeemed and Adopted: Our Great Blessing: Galatians 4:5
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 21, 2014
We discuss implications of redemption and our adoption as sons into the family of God. Justification is not by law-works but by faith in Christ. The long series of contrasts in Galatians shows that blessing is by faith and cursing by works.

Remembering God's Work of Grace: Galatians 4:1-2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 24, 2014
In Galatians, Paul piles up analogies to show how absurd it would be to go back to law-works from grace. We discuss the importance of remembering what God has done so that we do not go back. This idea is repeated throughout the Bible.

The Baptized into Christ are Clothed with Christ: Galatians 3:27
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 3, 2014
What Paul emphasizes about water baptism is that we are in Christ and therefore partake in Christian unity. Pagan baptism practices implied being baptized into a false god and there was even clothing involved to show their status with the pagan deity.
MP3 (duration 00:37:25)

In Christ all Believers are Sons: Galatians 3:26
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 24, 2014
We emphasize the truth that being sons is true of all Christians. This is not a higher order status as pietism claims. "All" is emphasized to rebuke the false teachers who claim special status for law keepers after the manner that they prescribe.
MP3 (duration 00:34:40)

No Longer Under the Guardian: Galatians 3:24-25
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 17, 2014

In Custody Under the Law: Galatians 3:23
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

The Law and the Promises of God: Galatians 3:20-21a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 27, 2014
We discuss implications of the difference between law and gospel. The promise given to Abraham is contrasted with the mediated Law given through Moses. Deut. 18 predicts that God will raise up a prophet like Moses. Mark 9 identifies Jesus as that prophet.

Luther on Baptism, Part 2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Jessica Kramasz
Broadcast Monday, January 20, 2014
This second part on Luther deals with other details of Luther's claims about water baptism. We begin by discussing the claim that infants who are baptized have faith. Luther was adamant that assurance is to be grounded in baptism rather than faith...
MP3 (duration 00:48:39)

Luther on Baptism, Part 1
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Jessica Kramasz
Broadcast Monday, January 13, 2014
This radio show helps answer a concern expressed by some listeners. Because we cite Luther favorably concerning the gospel and justification by faith, some are concerned that this might be considered an endorsement of Luther's doctrine of baptism.
MP3 (duration 00:31:18)

The Purpose of the Law: Galatians 3:19
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 6, 2014
Citing Luther as a quality source, we show that the Law both restrains evil in a civil sense and increases it in a theological sense. People complain when they see God showing mercy to people they think are worse than themselves.
MP3 (duration 00:37:31)

The Distinction Between Law and Promise: Galatians 3:18
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 30, 2013

The Law Does not Invalidate the Promise: Galatians 3:16-17
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 23, 2013
Paul claims that God's promise to Abraham cannot be invalidated by the Law of Moses. The promise to Abraham was given years earlier. We discuss other promises and prophecies, including Daniel 9, to show that they also are not invalidated.
MP3 (duration 00:32:12)

The Immutability of God's Promise: Galatians 3:15
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 16, 2013
This passage is a lesser to greater argument. If human covenants are not violated once ratified, how much more will God's covenant promises be kept. We address the logical fallacy of asserting the consequent in an "if...then" logical construction.

The Just Person Shall Live by Faith: Galatians 3:11
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Blessed by Faith or Cursed by Works: Galatians 3:9-10
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 11, 2013

The Scripture preaches the Gospel to Abraham: Galatians 3:8
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 4, 2013

The Relationship between Faith and Reason: Galatians 3:7
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Faith Alone is Defended from Scripture: Galatians 3:6
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 21, 2013
Genesis 15:6 is cited here to prove justification by faith. We discuss various ideas and theories that have arisen to mute or refute the truth of faith alone. One such idea is that what is to be emphasized is not Abraham's faith, but his faithfulness.
MP3 (duration 00:35:02)

The power of God through the gospel to rescue lost sinners: Galatians 3:4,5
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 14, 2013

MP3 (duration 00:33:23)

To begin with the Spirit is to begin with the gospel: Galatians 3:3
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 7, 2013
We find again the solas of faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone all according to Scripture alone. That we begin with the gospel and proceed according to God's promises found in Scripture is a necessary conclusion of the truth revealed by God.

Human Wisdom Cannot Sanctify: Galatians 3:3
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 30, 2013

The Holy Spirit Comes through the Hearing of Faith: Galatians 3:2
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 23, 2013
In Galatians 3:1-5 Paul shows that law-works are to be refuted and the hearing of faith shown to be the only way to receive the gospel. We discuss OT passages that show the Messiah would bring salvation to Gentiles. Thus God gives the Holy Spirit to people without respect of persons.
MP3 (duration 00:33:49)

The necessity of rationality, reason, and understanding the gospel: Galatians 3:1
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 16, 2013

"The Dangers of Pietism" - False teachings and implications from recent church history: Galatians 2:20
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 2, 2013
We will show what it meant to be crucified with Christ: death to the Law. The "I" who no longer lives was Paul as committed to law-keeping to earn favor with God. Serious misinterpretation of this verse has led to pietism and false, perfectionist claims.
MP3 (duration 00:36:33)

"Crucified with Christ" means having died to the Law: Galatians 2:18-19
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 26, 2013
It was Jesus who declared all foods clean, so in verse 17 (to consider the context), to refuse table fellowship with Gentiles because of the concept of unclean foods is to make Jesus the minister of sin, which cannot be.
MP3 (duration 00:34:03)

Why we cannot exclude from the Lord's Supper persons whom the Lord has received: Galatians 2:17
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 19, 2013
The issue of table fellowship provoked Paul to publicly correct Peter. We discuss why such a serious matter elicited a public rebuke. Peter's actions suggested that Christ was the minister of sin, to which Paul responded "may it never be."

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 12, 2013

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, August 5, 2013
Here we discuss the issue of the KJV only teaching in light of Galatians 2:16. We show that claims that modern translations are due to a conspiracy to remove the deity of Christ from the Bible are false. We give the example of how Titus 1:13 asserts the deity of Christ in a way the KJV does not. Part 2 next week.
MP3 (duration 00:41:59)

Not works, but faith in Christ: Galatians 2:16a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 29, 2013

Avoiding hypocrisy through means of grace: Galatians 2:15
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 22, 2013
This passage contains a saying that was likely axiomatic: "we are not sinners like the Gentiles." Paul rebukes Peter because this attitude among Christians is a denial of the gospel. It led to hypocrisy in the church in Galatia.

Peter's Hypocrisy Part 2: Galatians 2:13-14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 15, 2013

Peter's Hypocrisy Part 1: Galatians 2:11-12
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 8, 2013

The Effectual Working of God through the Gospel: Galatians 2:8b-10
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, July 1, 2013

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 29, 2013

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, April 15, 2013
We explain how Paul's use of conditional sentences explains the importance of the gospel that he preaches. We discuss the honor-shame aspect of their society. The gospel itself is enough of an offense, without the church adding needless offense.
