Tubal-Cain’s Forge

Technology has the power to shape our lives, though often in ways we do not expect.  We may seek to control things which do not belong to us.  We may exalt technology as a mysterious and mystifying power over our lives.  We may even look to technology as security for an uncertain tomorrow.  But one thing is clear:  the same forge which brings forth the plow shapes the sword.  Technology is both a blessing and a curse.

Technological Society and Its Future

Technology is the means by which we obtain certain goals, and using technology is part of being human.  Yet in an age when technology increasingly dominates our lives, what does the Word of God have to say about it?  Join us as we discuss why technology isn’t a neutral issue, some of what the Lord says about it, and why bringing up the Amish is a red herring.

Headship

Jesus Christ is our ascended King, the living head of the Church.  How do we understand the concept of Christ being the head?  Does headship also apply to government and family?  Join us as we discuss the Biblical doctrine of headship and its implications for our society today.

The Law of God is Good and Wise

It must be recognized that in any culture the source of law is the god of that society. Join us as we begin our discussion of the Law’s curbing effect in society. What is the place of God’s Law in the life of the Christian and in the state?  Does it only show us our sins, or does it show us a still more excellent way?

Walther on Marriage


Marriage is a perpetual source of joy and frustration in and outside the church. Today we look at how C.F.W. Walther discussed what makes a marriage and what unmakes a marriage, who should marry whom, and who shouldn’t be married at all. We delve into the relationship between marriage and the public good, especially how a minister’s marriage affects everything else in his life and his church.
