  • 103. Luther's 95 Theses (Reaction!)

    31/10/2017 Duración: 51min

    Andy is a Lutheran, meaning that he believes the Book of Concord (The Lutheran Confessions) accurately represent the teachings of Scripture.  However, he has never read Martin Luther's 95 Theses that he posted on the church door in Wittenberg on Oct. 31st, 1517.  In this episode, he reads them for the first time, start to finish on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  Many of these have some historical particularity that fully escapes him.  Much is still to be learned.

  • 100. Songs of Protest and Apocalypse

    26/09/2017 Duración: 01h16min

    For episode 100 of Reconnect, Andy interviews Joe Joe Bongiorno, about his illustrated rock lyric book, Black Sabbath The Illustrated Lyrics, Vo1. 2: Songs of Protest and Apocalypse.  Bongiorno’s book explains the lyrics of Black Sabbaths’ 2nd album, Paranoid.  Some listeners might be shocked to hear about a Black Sabbath themed episode of a podcast dedicated to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, and if that is the case, please go back to episode 68 where Andy interviewed Joe about Volume 1.  Bongiorno explains how Paranoid is a collection of songs that are “ultimately polemics infused in the discourse of apocalyptic literature (with implications both ancient and modern), there is the every-present reminder that there is hope and a greater purpose at work.” Sabbath challenges us to consider the nature of war, evil, depression, addiction, the failures of transhumanism, and the warns us against aligning ourselves with Satan, but instead points us to hope in the supernatural king that will take earth under

  • 99. Lutheran Theology Part 4

    27/06/2017 Duración: 01h05min

    Andy is joined by Wes, Jonathan, and Robby to continue the series on Lutheran Theology.  This time the focus is on the means of grace, a term that is particularly Lutheran, and is used to describe the Gospel, baptism, and communion.   You'll learn why Lutherans call baptism and communion a means of grace.  Not all Christians would do this, and many would deny that they are ways in which God delievers his grace to individuals.  Most Christians won't deny the Gospel being a means of grace, so the bulk of the episode is focused on baptism and communion.  Lutherans baptize babies and believe that Jesus' body and blood is physically present in communion and is consumed along with bread and wine.  Why do Lutherans believe these things?  Listen and find out.

  • 94. Lutheran Theology Part 1

    02/05/2017 Duración: 57min

    The Nature of God The doctrine of the Trinity states that there is only one God, yet God exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 28:19; and 2 Corinthians 13:14)  All three persons of the Trinity are eternal, not created, nor made.  The Father begets the Son.  The Son is eternally begotten of the Father.  The Holy Spirit eternally proceeds from the Father and the Son who send him.  In addition to being eternal (Psalm 90:2; Exodus 3:14; John 1:1; Romans 1:20; and Revelation 22:13), all three person of the Trinity are each omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-13 and Jeremiah 23:23-24), omniscient (Psalm 139:1-5 and 1 John 3:20), omnipotent (Luke 1:37 and Ephesians 3:20), immutable (Numbers 23:29 and Malachi 3:6), and love (1 John 4:8). Concerning the character of the Triune Lord, all three persons are holy (Isaiah 6:3 and 55:8-9), good (Psalm 145:9), just (Deuteronomy 32:4), merciful (Micah 7:18 and Luke 1:50), gracious (Joel 2:13), and patient (2

  • 92. Presuppositions and Evidence in Christian Apologetics

    18/04/2017 Duración: 01h29min

    David Pratt is back on Reconnect to further discuss his love of Presuppositional Apologetics. His brother, Jonathan Pratt, and Andy Wrasman have lots of questions for him, especially Andy, who prefers to lead with the Gospel and defend the message of the Gospel using historical evidence for the historicity of the New Testament. The following questions are discussed (not in the particular order of the video): Did the Apostles ever try to convince someone that God exists? Did the Apostles ever use presuppositional apologetics? Did the Apostles ever use evidential apologetics? What does 1 Peter 3:15 tell us to be able to prepared to give a defense for? Does Scripture teach that everyone knows that the Triune Lord exists or just that a Creator God exists? So Atheists are lying when they say there is no God, because they actually know there is a God? Do you find it helpful to tell Atheists, you’re not an Atheist, you know God exists? Then more specifically tell them that they know the Christian God? Is Pre

  • 89. Re: You Are CONTRADICTing Jesus

    28/03/2017 Duración: 55min

    Andy responds to an email he received from a lady claiming that he is CONTRADICTing Jesus by saying other religions are wrong. Here's the email: "Hello! My name is Summer; I'm a woman from Oregon. After reading about the Contradict movement, I do have a couple comments/questions for you. I do believe that you are CONTRADICTing the teachings of Jesus; it seems that you are saying Christianity should be the only religion on planet earth. Thing is, Jesus taught that we need to coexist with everyone on the planet. Matthew 22:39 says to love your neighbor as you love yourself. That's just one verse out of many of the teachings of Jesus that says to not persecute others based on the things that they have done or are currently partaking in. If you truly wanted to convert people to Christianity, you would have patience with those that do not agree. Shunning them and telling them their way of thinking is wrong is not how to break through to anyone. It is very confusing to me that after reading the Bible, and the w

  • 88. Was the Church Totally Wrong in the Crusades

    21/03/2017 Duración: 52min

    Andy speaks with high school senior Morgan Lunsford about the Church's involvement in the Crusades.   Does the Church need to get off its high horse when addressing Islamic invasions, Islamic terrorism, and the many Islamic nations that treat women far from equal because of the Church's involvement in the Crusades?   What are the Crusades?  Why did they start?  Were there any good reasons that the Church was involved in the Crusades?  Why does the Church get such a bad wrap about the Crusades?  Did leaders in the Church condemn any of the evil actions done by members of their side during the time of the Crusades, or only centuries later?   Check out Morgan's notes at Episode 88 accessed at
