If you are new to this presentation, we will include the original product description below. We hope you enjoy it!




This MP3 of the recording of Dr. Rosenbladt’s presentation is tailor-made for all those folks who are “mad” at and “sad” about Christianity BECAUSE they have been “baited and switched” by the church.

If the Ten Commandments were not impossible enough, the preaching of Christian behavior, of Christian ethics, of Christian living, can drive a Christian into despairing unbelief. Not happy unbelief. Tragic, despairing, sad unbelief. (It is not unlike the [unhappy] Christian equivalent of “Jack Mormons” – those who finally admit to themselves and others that they can’t live up to the demands of this non-Christian cult’s laws, and excuse themselves from the whole sheebang.) A diet of this stuff from pulpit, from curriculum, from a Christian reading list, can do a work on a Christian that is (at least over the long haul) “faith destroying.”
In this staggeringly potent presentation, Dr. Rosenbladt tackles what plagues many ‘recovering Christians’. Sticking to his unchanging theme of 200-proof Gospel, using his own history as an agnostic “outsider” to Christianity, Dr. Rosenbladt delivers the grace of the cross with all its potency, undiluted.

If you’ve struggled with your faith in your church because of what you’re seeing and hearing (and maybe don’t even go to church anymore), you don’t want to miss this powerful address – an unabashed analysis of the church today and what it is doing to many believers – from one who has experienced it himself.

Are we Christians saved the same way we were when we were baptized into Christ, or when we came to acknowledge Christ’s shed blood and His righteousness as all we had in the face of God’s holy law? That all of our supposed “virtue” – Christian or pagan – is just like so many old menstrual garments (to use the Bible phrase)? But that God imputes to those who trust Christ’s cross the true righteousness of Christ Himself? We are pretty sure that unbelievers who come to believe this are instantly justified in God’s sight, declared as if innocent, adopted as sons or daughters, forgiven of all sin, given eternal life, etc. But are Christians still saved that freely? Or are we not? We are pretty clear that imputed righteousness saves sinners. But can the imputed righteousness of Christ save a Christian? And can it save him or her all by itself? Or no?
For all of you who have been given morality lessons instead of the Gospel, hear how Dr. Rod Rosenbladt succinctly presents Christianity as first and foremost a genuine truth claim about Christ as our righteous substitute, instead of a never ending list of popular religious recipes for personal success.

All Praise The Ancient Of Days
you're very welcome adstar.
i'm finding consistent blessing from The Confessional Lutheran teachers. there are some things some seem to teach that i reject (some SEEM to border on transubstantiation, for example(?).

but overall i find their teaching closest and most faithful to what i see in The Word. (maybe it should be the other way around! LOL)

one thing i REALLY like is their use of a Lectionary: it takes away creative license from the pastor/preacher, and guarantees the Word is taught systematically and in a continuous circuit. The Gospel is presented EVERY WEEK. they understand its always the life of the church and the food for the people.

i know i start having trouble if i go too long without The Promises and Jesus.
their hermeneutic is Christ-centered at all times. after listening to their stuff over a long period of time it becomes really clear when others have veered off into wrong use of Law etc.

love zone.

here's the link to another Lutheran i listen to every podcast. his name is Chris Rosebrough and he' not afraid to defend the faith. and he's fully qualified to do so.

he's really good, knows the Hebrew and Greek, knows the Law & Gospel, but his angle is examining the errors taking place, using real examples from today. he sources everything and we go through the Scriptures to see if what people are teaching is so.

as often as he covers BAD sermons, he also covers good ones. on top of that HE'S REALLY REALLY FUNNY! which i need. i like humour.

sometimes if we don't laugh we'll cry (and i've cried so many tears for so many years, i need to laugh whenever i can)

give him a try. it may take a few episodes because we follow along (after time you get to know what he's doing, and really look forward to the episodes).

let me know if you do

http://www.fightingforthefaith.com/

THIS IS ALSO HIS SITE:

THE MUSEUM OF IDOLATRY

http://www.alittleleaven.com/

and he has a blog called Letter of Marque. excellent.
