Paul Alexander writes for 9 Marks.org; “…there are many churches out there that sing the last stanza of Have Thine Own Way just one more time as they wait for the convicted sinner to step out of the pew and into a new relationship with Christ. But even though it is still somewhat popular, we think that the invitation system has done more harm than good among many evangelical churches.” On this edition of Theology 101, Mike and Pastor Scott Reiber examine the history, meaning, and concerns with the altar call/invitation.
Mike and Scott Reiber continue their discussion on how those who affirm the Reformed faith relate to those who do not. Can one not affirm the Doctrines of Grace and be a Christian? How can one of the Reform faith dialogue with non-reformed Christians, and do so with conviction and compassion?
Mike and Scott Reiber discuss the importance and centrality of preaching. Also they share thoughts on the recent religious prominence of Glenn Beck. This program also includes a podcast-only bonus segment!
