The Weekly Essentials | 01-06-2023

In by Right Response Staff

Right Response Ministries has produced hundreds of high-quality videos/podcasts. So for your convenience, every Friday we provide a list of our top five videos for the week. Each of these videos are personally selected by Pastor Joel Webbon. He has insisted that we not merely highlight our most popular content, but the content that he believes is most vital for Christians to be convicted, emboldened, and encouraged. May God use this content to bless you richly.

#1 The Theonomy Controversy | with Dr. Joe Boot

In this replay episode of Theology Applied, Pastor Joel is joined by Dr. Joe Boot from the Ezra Institute to discuss Theonomy, its adherents, and why so many oppose it, even within the Reformed Tradition.

#2 Gospel-Centered Postmillennialism | Part 1

So why was the Jews’ desire for salvation so far off from God’s plan? Because they did not recognize their truest need. We all want salvation from something, but is that something the same thing that Jesus came to save us from? It is true that Jesus is the King of Righteousness, and therefore, he came to save us from the tyranny of earthly kings and corrupt governments. But how does he accomplish this salvation? He accomplishes this salvation by first saving individuals from their sin. Apart from Christ, our greatest enemy is not the pagan culture or wicked politicians. Our greatest enemy is God.

#3 Covenant Theology, Postmil Eschatology, & The Substance Of Christ | Hebrews 11:32-40

It is not as though Old Testament saints received only victory, while New Testament saints receive only persecution. Virtually all Old Testament saints experienced some measure of victory, but with much defeat. And all New Testament saints experience some measure of defeat, but with an ever progressing amount of victory throughout the Gospel Age.

#4 Why Calvary Chapel Pastors Resisted Covid Tyranny Better Than Reformed Pastors

It’s hard to convince Christians that they should be Reformed, especially when Reformed pastors shut down their churches for a year and Calvary Chapel pastors fought back against civil tyranny.

#5 Is Eastern Orthodoxy Heresy?

Are you aware of the rise in Eastern Orthodoxy? If so, do you have tips for engaging it in debate? Would you personally be opposed to debating someone who is Eastern Orthodox?

We humbly ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with Right Response Ministries. Right Response Ministries is seeking to continue to be a voice of reason in a world that has gone mad, but we cannot accomplish this without your help.
