Are we straining gnats while swallowing camels? A listener’s question about Christian participation in Halloween takes us to the LCMS’s Christian Cyclopedia for a look at adiaphora before hearing from Martin Luther’s sermon on The Three Kinds of Good Life for the Instruction of Consciences, based on Exodus 25-27 and focused on Matthew 23:23-24.
