Rev. Dustin Beck, pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Warda, TX, goes “Back to the Forge” with host Rev. Timothy Appel to answer listener email concerning false teaching.
What is decision theology, and why is it contrary to the true teaching from God’s Word concerning salvation by grace through faith in Christ? What should you do if you think your pastor is preaching falsely? What is the difference between heresy and heterodoxy? What helpful distinction does Dr. Francis Pieper make concerning heterodox church bodies? Why is the holding to true doctrine so important? Spend some time in God’s Word to sharpen your faith in the life-giving truth of Jesus Christ.

Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.
