Today’s conversation covers the aptitude of a pastor, the confining freedom of Scripture, how you should judge your pastor, the holy fear of being a preacher, and the retention and increase of spiritual theology. Guests Rev. Adam Filipek from Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lidgerwood, North Dakota, Rev. John Sias, Secretary of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, discuss Francis Pieper’s Christliche Dogmatik, or Christian Dogmatics, so that you know why you believe what you believe so that you will be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks for the hope that you have in the totality of who Jesus is, what Jesus has done, and what Jesus is coming again to do. Find your copy of Pieper’s Dogmatics at cph.org. Today’s program is a rebroadcast from September 11, 2017.
