Rev. Mosley and I tackle some serious condemnations from God on Israel. Including God giving them a barren womb. What does all of this fruitlessness mean? You have to listen.
Revs. Mosley and Powell return to help me look at the next section of Hosea and Israel’s response and view of God. God the Fowler’s snare. God with his enmity. God in his position as the bringing of wrath. A sobering look into the prophet.
In 1555 the Interim ended with the passing of the Peace of Augsburg by the Diet of Germany. Lutheranism and Catholicism were allowed, the Reformed faith was not. What does it all mean, how did it play out, and what lesson can we learn? Take a listen.
A quick look and thought about the importance and benefits of the Communion of the Saints.
Rev. Mosely drops by to discuss Israel playing the harlot, facing the wrath of God, and the bread of mourning vs. the Bread of Life. Sit back, grab a bible, and dive in.

Basel reacts against Calvin after Servetus, but why? What changed to make the church in Basel begin to drift? We examine it and discover a few principles for our churches today.
