  • He Will Sprinkle Many Nations - The White Horse Inn - #1444

    In verse 15 of Isaiah 52 we’re told that the suffering servant “will sprinkle many nations.” What’s interesting is that this word “sprinkle,” is the same one we find in Leviticus 16:14 which speaks of sacrificial blood being “sprinkled” on the mercy seat. In other words, Isaiah is saying that the...

  • He Shall Justify Many & Bear Their Iniquities - The White Horse Inn - #1446

    According to Isaiah, “all we like sheep have gone astray,” and as a result, we are full of transgression and iniquity. But all this is credited to the account the one who came to bear our sins. And yet, the suffering servant comes not only to take away our sin, but also to grant us his righteousn...

  • The Suffering Servant - The White Horse Inn - #1443

    On this program the hosts will begin a new series that seeks to explore the Bible’s most amazing prophecy from Isaiah 52 and 53. In this text, written over half a millennia before the time of Christ, Israel’s messiah is not described as a life-coach, or social transformer, but as a sacrificial la...

  • Scripture Alone - The White Horse Inn - #1378

    As we approach the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, today’s Protestants actually have little to be proud of as we survey the movement as a whole. The content of our messages and the shape of our worship services are largely determined by cultural preferences, marketing strategies,...

  • Christ Alone - The White Horse Inn - #1379

    Many Christians in our day, whether liberal or evangelical, declare that there is hope of eternal life apart from explicit faith in Jesus Christ. In fact, according to one survey by George Barna, 35% of America’s evangelical seminary students agreed with the statement, “God will save all good peo...

  • Justification by Faith - The White Horse Inn - #1381

    Once upon a time, Protestants of every variety were identified as those who were committed to the doctrine of “justification through faith alone.” In our day, however, most Protestants are not even familiar with this doctrine. With either stern rigor or happy tips for better living, conservatives...

  • Grace Alone - The White Horse Inn - #1380

    In the medieval church, sin was viewed as a kind of sickness that could be remedied if we reached out to take the medicine. But the Protestant Reformers sought to recover the clear teaching of Scripture that salvation “depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy” (Rom. 9:16)....

  • Christianity & Liberalism - The White Horse Inn - #1384

    On this program, the hosts continue their discussion begun last week on the influence of the Radical Reformation. How did the theology of the Anabaptist and Pietist movements end up influencing so many forms of Protestantism, both here in America and around the world? And more specifically, how d...

  • Did Jesus Teach Justification By Faith Alone? - The White Horse Inn - #1441

    Sometimes Christians will say things like, “I’m not interested in all those heavy doctrines that Paul talks about. I’m only interested in the simple teachings of Jesus.” But did Paul reshape the Christian message, or was he actually a faithful apostle? To put the question more sharply, did Paul i...

  • Christianity & Evangelicalism - The White Horse Inn - #1385

    Though evangelicals and liberals are often at each other’s throats in the culture wars, this division is best understood as a kind of sibling rivalry. Whereas liberals focus on creating our best society now, evangelicals focus on having your best life now. But either way, the focus is on us, here...

  • Has The Bible Been Miscopied or Mistranslated? - The White Horse Inn - #1377

    Many people today make the claim that the Bible has been revised, edited, and miscopied over the centuries, and that the translations we have with us today are not at all faithful to the original manuscripts. But is this really the case? On this program, Michael Horton discusses this important is...

  • Addressing Popular Misconceptions of Faith - The White Horse Inn - #1373

    On this program, the hosts interact with a number of man-on-the-street interviews concerning the nature and meaning of faith. As they have discussed throughout this series, faith is often seen as a kind of leap in the dark. According to the surveys we’ll air on this program, this belief seems to ...

  • Do I Have to Go to Church to Be a Christian? - The White Horse Inn - #1376

    Many Christians in our time seem to think that church attendance is optional, particularly in an age like ours with so many online options. But is this a healthy outlook? Is it even biblical? On this program, the hosts discuss this question and offer numerous reasons why it is not only important ...

  • Do All Paths Lead to the Same God? - The White Horse Inn - #1374

    Religious pluralism seems to be the only perspective that is tolerated in today’s culture, while those who are “trapped” within the confines of a single religious outlook are dismissed as narrow and sectarian. But if you think about it, those who promote this alternative dogma that “all paths lea...

  • American Gospel: Christ Crucified - The White Horse Inn - #1513

    On this program, Shane Rosenthal talks with writer and director Brandon Kimber about his American Gospel documentary series. His first film, American Gospel: Christ Alone, explored the problem of moralistic preaching and issues related to the prosperity gospel. His new documentary, American Gospe...

  • Is Faith Opposed to Evidence? - The White Horse Inn - #1371

    Sometimes when discussing evidence for the Christian faith, a person may respond by asking, “What room does this leave for faith?” This question actually reveals a misunderstanding of the Christian view of faith which is grounded in factual claims about the person and work of Christ as reported a...

  • Is Faith a Blind Leap? - The White Horse Inn - #1370

    Why do you believe the Bible? What does it mean to “believe” in the first place? Should we think of faith as a kind of blind leap or shot in the dark? If so, why have you made this particular leap, in contrast to all the other faith options? On this program, the hosts will seek to answer these qu...

  • Is Trying to Be Good Enough, Good Enough? - The White Horse Inn - #1375

    Imagine a person standing in a courtroom and pleading before the judge, “I’m sorry, Your Honor, I tried not to steal that car!” If this wouldn’t work with a civil magistrate, why do we think it would work before the judge of all the earth? On this program, the hosts discuss what it means to be go...

  • The Search for the New Adam (2) - The White Horse Inn - #1366

    The Bible traces the story of God’s promise to rescue the world from the consequences of the Fall. Yet as we follow the lives of characters such as Abraham, Moses, and David, we find not only sinners but also those who sin in spectacular ways that remind us of Adam’s original sin. In other words,...

  • The Search for the New Adam (1) - The White Horse Inn - #1365

    In many ways the Bible is the unpacking of God’s initial promise recorded in Genesis 3:15, that though death entered the world through man’s fall, one day a child would be born who would restore all things and crush the serpent’s head. Therefore, the primary question that we should ask as we make...

  • Paul & James on Justification - The White Horse Inn - #1321

    Paul in Romans 4 says that “the one who does not work but trusts in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness.” Yet we also read in James 2:24 that “a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.” Do Paul and James contradict each other in the matter of justific...

  • The Great Divide - The White Horse Inn - #1324

    At the heart of the Protestant/Catholic division in the sixteenth century was the disagreement over the doctrine of justification by an alien or imputed righteousness. In Catholic theology, justification is conceived as a lifelong process of becoming intrinsically righteous and holy, rather than ...

  • The Great Exchange in the Old Testament (2) - The White Horse Inn - #1320

    In Isaiah chapter 53 we read that the coming messiah will be despised and rejected by men. He will be pierced for our transgressions, and punished so that we may have peace. Through his anguish, God will make many to be accounted righteous. On this program the hosts are continuing to explore The ...

  • The Great Exchange in the Old Testament (1) - The White Horse Inn - #1319

    In order to fully appreciate God’s grace to us in Christ, we first need to understand the seriousness of man’s fall, and the depth of our sin. Once we have grasped this, then we should focus our attention on unfolding God’s promise to provide a coming redeemer and advocate which he announced thro...
