Show Notes:

The concept of sensus Deitatus is important to apologetics. This Latin term means “sense of deity.” Alternatively it is rendered sensus divinitatis—awareness of divinity. This term was used by John Calvin in his Institutes of the Christian Religion.

1 Point Preacher
Episode 37

Show Notes:

"Did you never hear a sermon as to which you felt that if Jesus had come into that pulpit while the man was making his oration, he would have said, “Go down, go down; what business have you here? I sent you to preach about me, and you preach about a dozen other things. Go home and learn of me, and then come and talk.” That sermon which does not lead to Christ, or of which Jesus Christ is not the top and the bottom, is a sort of sermon that will make the devils in hell to laugh, but might make the angel of God to weep, if they were capable of such emotion."
—C.H. Spurgeon

Episode 1

Show Notes:

The Transcendental Argument for the existence of God (TAG, for short), is the distinctive feature of Cornelius Van Til’s presuppositional apologetic method. It was he who asserted that Christianity as a philosophy, as a complete world-and-life-view, necessitates a specific methodology for defense. Due to the doctrine of God, doctrine of revelation, doctrine of man, and the whole system of theology, that particular method would be transcendental.

Telegram:
https://t.me/CoffeeChristianWorldview/141

Coffee & Christian Worldview
Episode 41

Show Notes:

The matter of women and church office seems to have been a challenge at least since the New Testament. Women in church office has needed explicit regulation. Hence, the New Testament actually addresses this issue.

The conclusion of the matter is made by the explicit statements of Scripture regarding the office of pastor/elder/bishop/overseer (which are synonymous terms) and the role of women in the church.

This is one of those clear, “show me a verse” topics.

Positive statements on the office of pastor: 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9

Negative statement: 1 Timothy 2:11-15

In order for an objection to be valid, it must deal with the text. One must show that these passages of Scripture actually don’t mean what they say. That’s the field of debate.

Any emotional, experiential, pragmatic, situational or whatever kind of challenge/objection doesn’t actually deal with the issue at hand.

1 Point Preacher
Episode 34

Show Notes:

Concluding a special series of 1 Point Preacher, to commemorate the 504th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

The great Reformation was emphatically a reformation of the pulpit in this particular, and a revival of expository preaching.
—R.L. Dabney

It was a revival of Biblical preaching. Instead of long and often fabulous stories about saints and martyrs, and accounts of miracles, instead of passages from Aristotle and Seneca, and fine-spun subtleties of the Schoolmen, these men preached the Bible. The question was not what the Pope said; and even the Fathers, however highly esteemed, were not decisive authority it was the Bible. The preacher’s one great task was to set forth the doctrinal and moral teachings of the Word of God.
And the greater part of their preaching was expository. Once more, after long centuries, people were reading the Scriptures in their own tongue, and preachers, studying the original Greek and Hebrew, were carefully explaining to the people the connected teachings of passage after passage and book after book.
—John Broadus, Lectures on the History of Preaching

Knox knew that many took offense at his preaching and that they attributed his vigor to hatred of his enemies instead of zeal for the gospel. In one of his sermons before Mary, Queen of Scots, he offered an explanation: “Without the preaching place, I think few would have occasion to be offended at me; and there I am not master of myself, but must obey him who commands me to speak plain and to flatter no flesh on the face of the earth.” Still, there is a sense in which Knox’s preaching was motivated by hatred. As Iain Murray has it: “He passionately hated that which destroys souls. He hated the system which had blinded people to the necessity of faith and salvation by the blood of Jesus Christ.”
—Douglas Bond, The Mighty Weakness of John Knox

Show Notes:

A special series of 1 Point Preacher, to commemorate the 504th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

The great Reformation was emphatically a reformation of the pulpit in this particular, and a revival of expository preaching.
—R.L. Dabney

An overview of the preaching careers of:
Martin Luther
John Calvin
Ulrich Zwingli
John Knox

True descendants of the Reformation will have high esteem for the preaching of the Word. In terms of practice, if preaching is devalued, not the priority, then you’re not an heir of the Reformation!
But this isn’t just a practice. It’s because of theology. Why were they preachers? Sola Scriptura. It was their doctrinal convictions about the Word that necessitated the primacy of the pulpit. It’s logical: a high view of Scripture automatically creates a high view of preaching. And the reverse is true, as well: a low view of preaching betrays a low view of Scripture.

1 Point Preacher
Episode 32

Show Notes:

A special series of 1 Point Preacher, to commemorate the 504th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

The Reformers were pastors. They were preachers of the Word.

"I will constrain no man by force, for faith must come freely without compulsion. Take myself as an example. I opposed indulgences and all the papists, but never with force. I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And while I slept, or drank Wittenberg beer with my friends Philip and Amsdorf, the Word so greatly weakened the papacy that no prince or emperor ever inflicted such losses upon it. I did nothing; the Word did everything."
—Martin Luther

"The great Reformation was emphatically a reformation of the pulpit in this particular, and a revival of expository preaching."
—R.L. Dabney

If Reformation was going to happen, then preaching needed to be restored to its rightful place.

The Reformation was not just about theology, but about the ministry of the Word and church government.
Medieval worship was theater.

Martin Luther:
"Therefore, when God’s Word is not preached, one had better neither sing nor read, or even come together."
—Lawson, The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther loc. 597

Naturally, reform needed to begin with the pulpit.

"[Luther] believed that the word of God must first convince people, and then the rotten old structures would collapse. It was exactly what he had stood for before the emperor, that it is the Scriptures that must drive and dictate thought and practice. As a result, Luther never believed that he should devise any great programme for spreading the Reformation. He simply wanted to unleash the word of God, and let that do all the work."
—Reeves, Unquenchable Flame pg. 56

Sola Scriptura was the formal principle of the Reformation. That relates to method. How was Reformation to be accomplished? By Scripture alone.
