The Weekly Essentials | 09-30-2022

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 Figuring Out This Whole “Postmillennial-Theonomy-Covenant Thing” | with Jared Longshore

Christians all over the world are starting to think about what it would look like to win the nations to Christ; a “mere-Christendom,” as some have called it. However, there’s a lot of theological heavy-lifting that needs to be done if we’re going to make this work.

*Both Pastor Joel and Pastor @Jared Longshore that several Credobaptist churches do serve the Lord’s Supper to Paedobaptists. It’s also worth noting that the CREC is not an exclusively Presbyterian denomination, but a communion of reformed and evangelical churches.

#2 NBC, Doug Wilson, & Christian Nationalism

You may not describe yourself as a “Christian Nationalist,” but if you’re a Bible-believing Christian, NBC definitely thinks you’re a Christian Nationalist.

#3 “Profaning The Blood Of The Covenant By Which He Was Sanctified” | 4 Views

“Profaning The Blood Of The Covenant By Which He Was Sanctified” | 4 Views: Arminians, Calvinistic Baptists, Reformed Baptists, & Reformation Presbyterians

Some take this “sanctification” to mean that a person can be truly justified by faith and on their way to paradise through a life of inward sanctification, and yet lose their salvation by forsaking the truth. Others say that the possibility raised here of sanctified people committing apostasy is merely hyperbole which will never actually occur because those who are truly elect will be kept from apostasy by the work of the Holy Spirit. But the sanctification mentioned in Hebrews 10:26-31 is indeed a real sanctification. However, although this sanctification is real, the sanctification mentioned in Hebrews 10:29 is not the same as the sanctification mentioned previously in Hebrews 10:14. The sanctification mentioned previously is an inward sanctification which serves as a proof of eternal justification (Hebrews 10:14). The sanctification mentioned here is an outward sanctification which serves as an added proof of guilt after committing apostasy (Hebrews 10:29).

#4 Stop Sending Your Kids To Children’s Ministry!

Pastor Joel Webbon presents a concise argument AGAINST “Children’s Ministries” that take the place of Sunday Morning Worship.

#5 Is Shunning Biblical?

Question from Jukebox Studio

Is shunning a biblical concept? If so, what would be a biblical example of shunning? Is it related to ex-communication?

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JOEL WEBBON

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.
