The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate with Brother Bryce

This Wonky Wednesday, Bryce walks us through the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate. The doctrine is seen throughout church history but wasn’t formalized until the Magdeburg confession of 1550. Bryce walks us through the doctrine based off a book we recently read by Matt Trewhella called unironically, “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates“. The book is definitely worth reading. Bryce makes a comment in the discussion about a right of other religions to worship. The first commandment of God lays our clearly that humanity is not to have any other gods besides Yahweh, therefore there is no God-given right to freedom of religion in the sense of freedom to make false idols. If we are to legislate according to God’s laws and not man’s laws (secular humanism or any other manmade religion) then the law of God prescribes in his word is that you do not have the right to worship false idols. Every government is a theocracy and derives their laws from metaphysical principles. That may manifest in “reason” and “logic” from the secular atheist that is tolerant of every worldview besides every other worldview or from a holy book in various religions. Regardless, this is the clear teaching of the 1st commandment and when God visits a nation in judgement he holds them accountable to the false idols they made and does NOT recognize their “freedom of religion” in the sense many understand it today. Read Isaiah 10:5-11 for a clear example of this.

Abortion Apologetics with Brother Carter

This week my brother in Christ and long close friend, Carter, teaches me and some other men how to conduct abortion apologetics from a biblical worldview.

You can find it by clicking here. Thanks for listening, For The King!!!

Presuppositional Apologetics: The Correct Way to Defend the Christian Faith

This Wednesday I have Bryce as my guest again! We walk through the presuppositional method for defending the Christian faith.

We hope this episode equips you to defend the faith and destroy the god’s of this age like secularism, evolutionary theory, feminism, and the like! Go to battle Christian warriors! You’ve been made a new creation and have been given a new mind, do not use the old mans ways of defending the faith with vain philosophy! 


“but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” – 1 Peter 3:15 
“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” – 2 Corinthians 10:5

This week I interview a brother in Christ, John Lee. John is the founder of custommobile.app. Their boutique agency builds individualized mobile apps for podcasts starting at just $25/month. I am hoping to eventually take advantage of his service for my podcast!

We speak on a wide range of topics from apologetics, Molinism/Calvinism, and homosexuality/transgenderism. John had some AMAZING thoughts on transgenderism and I would definitely stay tuned in until the end to hear what he has to say! Thanks for listening!

Book Review: A Magnificent Catastrophe by Edward J. Larson

I am not including this book review in my monthly book review episode because there is far too much to interact with. To do this book justice I needed to create a longer episode exposing some of the helpful things it gets into. I hope you learn something and walk away with some thoughts whether you agree or not!

Interview: Keagan, an Agnostic Atheist (part 3)

Today, on the For The King podcast, I am joined with one of my good friends. Keagan and I met at college during our undergraduate careers and we soon became good friends doing lots of random things together. Today Keagan and I continue on our discussion of our worldviews, mainly talking about the problem of evil in the world and the evils that many people charge Christians with. This episode is more of a debate/dialogue than the first part of this interview. Tune in and hear Keagan espouse his beliefs, and I mine. We both take time to defend our views and press each other on some of the points that we disagree with the other. Thank you for listening!

Texts:
1 Timothy 1:8– 10Exodus 21:16Deuteronomy 15:12-15
Slavery in the bible was voluntary and the slaves were to be such free under Mosaic law. Man-stealing was a crime punishable by death, a command unheard of in the ancient near east, yet the bible institutes such a law. This topic was touched on in another episode, “the uniqueness of America“.

Remember, the first society to every formally and universally outlaw slavery in legislation is the United States of America. This had nothing to do with our intelligence but EVERYTHING to do with us being a Christian nation. Atheism cannot be accounted for ever freeing any humans from any bondage ever.

Thanks for listening!

Romans 6:16-23 “Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw83wkfHjW4 -> Good analysis of evil
https://www.britannica.com/topic/atheism -> Generally atheism is a denial of God or of the gods, and if religion is defined in terms of belief in spiritual beings, then atheism is the rejection of all religious belief.
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/religion -> To determine if Atheism is a religion we need to define religion. The answer is based upon how you define religion. I would say that humans always worship something and always have a set of metaphysical values they adhere to. Of this list I would say religion is best defined the 4th way.
