The Weekly Essentials | 09-23-2022

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 Cornelius Van Til Vs. Thomas Aquinas | Why Many Reject Postmil & Theonomy | with John White

"Why the talk lately about Thomas Aquinas? It’s because Theonomy and Postmillennialism are rooted in the authority of the Bible to govern all of man’s activities. Aquinas held a very different view that has deeply influenced western theological thought. The flashpoint? Put down Aquinas and learn about Cornelius Van Til." - John White

#2 2022 Ligonier State of Theology | The Dangerous Rise of Open Theism | Live Q&A with Pastor Joel

​ @Ligonier Ministries just released their 2022 State of Theology. One of the most concerning findings is the massive amount of Evangelicals who believe that God is constantly changing and adapting based on circumstances within human society.

#3 The Wrath Of God Is A Fury Of Fire | Hebrews 10:26-31

Many Christians wrongly believe that the only good motivation for obedience to Christ comes from hearing about grace, rather than hearing about judgment. These people allow this misinformed belief to distort their view of God, until there are no theological categories left to comprehend, let alone love, a God whose wrath against sinners “is a fury of fire.” The Scripture clearly teaches that God is not mildly upset about sin, but passionately furious. Hebrews 10:26-31 stands against the false assumption that the only motivating news is good news. For every true follower of Christ, there is both the promise of joy and the warnings of judgment. This is a message of God that our world today does not want to hear. And sadly, this message of God is even despised by many in the church.

#4 A Comprehensive Understanding Of The Moral Law

Pastor Joel and  @Mike Winger  discuss the 10 Commandments.

#5 But… John Calvin Executed Heretics

Let’s take a moment and clear a few things up.


Unfortunately, 2021 did not provide the relief that many were hoping for. Instead of the promised return to normalcy, tyranny and deception have become commonplace. From vaccine mandates to record-high inflation, our current political elites have made it abundantly clear that they have no concern for the public. And yet, God’s goodness has continued to shine through. More and more people are waking up to reality and joining the fight for liberty and truth.

However, there still appears to be a problem. On the one hand, there are Evangelicals who claim to love the Gospel, while consistently echoing the talking points of neo-Marxists. And on the other hand, there are Conservatives that champion many Christian values, while rejecting Christ as the source of all that is good. Our world desperately needs Christians who believe the whole Bible and are committed to applying it to every area of life. From family to church, and culture to politics, we must hold fast to the sufficiency of Scripture.

This is our goal: To equip Christians with a thoroughly biblical worldview, and teach them to apply it to every area of life.

To this end, 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.
