3GT Episode 68: Cyber Church Lite

No, we are not encouraging Kyle to start a multisite internet church! Rather, we draw upon the digital dexterity of Aaron, who flips classrooms with ease, to hear how congregations should (and in some cases should not) use the internet for their ministry. Drawing upon his experience in teaching a seminary class on the subject, Aaron schools us on social media, webpages, blogs and the like. He explains how much emphasis such things as aesthetics and theological content should have on a webpage, and delves into many other practicalities. But not before Kyle begins trying to recruit a cyber congregation!

Join us for another lively episode of 3GT!

3GT Episode 66: Learning to Say “No”

Children learn how to say it pretty early. But when they grow up into busy Christian adults they seem to forget. How do we say “No” to good requests on our talents, time, and treasures when “Yes” seems so much easier?

As the three guys begin discussing this topic, one confesses he is a member of Yes Anonymous. Another has fun shouting “No!” But then they get down to business, and give conceptual ideas such as spheres, white space, and scales. They speak about how pride and a man-pleasing spirit fuels a lot of our over-busyness. They then share Biblical principles and look to Jesus for a paradigm. They talk about a few helpful books on the subject. Then they practice the art of “No”!

Hope you won’t say “No” to this energetic episode of 3GT!

3GT Episode 65: #MeToo and What to Do

With the #metoo movement growing in momentum, causing the fall of many in power, the 3Gters wrestle with what to do when accusations arise. When men abuse their authority, we should rejoice when justice is served. Yet given that Satan is the father of lies, believers need to be cautious when charges are made. What principles should be followed? How are the weak protected? What type of policies should be in place in businesses and churches? How is compassion practiced in these situations? What do you do when false accusations arise?

Listen to this episode as serious questions like these are addressed!

3GT Episode 64: Rewind (51, 52, 56, 59)

On this rewind episode, the 3GTers answer questions they received regarding past episodes. Millennial Aaron feels vindicated about electronic giving while Luddite Barry continues to struggle. While discussing again what constitutes plagiarism, Kyle has the audacity to do some freebooting for another podcast. Then Kyle shares the ins and outs of his Keto diet which somehow leads to a discussion about gluten-free communion bread. The guys conclude by responding to the demand of their listeners for a heresy trial.

It’s a 3GT potpourri! Be sure to tune in and listen!

3GT Episode 63: little c catholicity

The Presbyterian pastor is confessional but wants also to be a little c catholic. In other words, how can you hold strongly to doctrines but also work with other professing Christians? The professor tries to help him with Al Mohler’s Theological Triage, but the pastor is not so sure. What if one person’s first-level is another’s third-level or vice versa? They try to sort things out, and when the parishioner jumps into the fray before you know it they’re discussing everything from the Trinity to headcoverings to the Sabbath. And when the pastor tries sliding in the idea of union, unity, and uniformity, is he just offering his own theological triage?

A helpful episode? Hopefully, but it is certainly an interesting one!

3GT Episode 62: The Sanctification Scene

With the Christian blogosphere aflame once again, this time with discussions regarding justification and sanctification, the 3GT men join in the fray. With Aaron pumping the questions, and Kyle and Barry responding energetically, they discuss current controversies then tackle the latter subject of sanctification. Minus a morose morbidity, they meditate on mortification while with vim and vigor they verify their views on vivification!

Well, just listen to the podcast. This episode and subject is much clearer than what you just read!

3GT Episode 61: When Elders Come Knocking

Aaron wants to know about the strange Reformed phenomenon known as elder visitations. So Kyle and Barry, aspiring Jedis, tell him about their training under the Yoda of visitation, who is hidden far away in the fair plains of Kansas. Secrets of this mysterious rite are revealed.

From there the guys talk about the Biblical concept of shepherding, the importance of elders knowing the flock of God, practical guidelines for making visitations, and the benefits of elders being in the homes of God’s people. Don’t miss this edifying episode of 3GT!

3GT Episode 60: Gordon Keddie, Author of Prayers of the Bible

On this episode of 3GT, we interview Pastor Gordon Keddie, author of the new book Prayers of the Bible from Crown & Covenant Publications. Yet this is not your ordinary interview. With his Scottish brogue, lively spirit, and keen insights, Gordon brings the subject of prayer to life!

Nor is this an ordinary book on prayer. His newest book offers 366 prayers of the Bible in a two-page, daily format. Each day contains an inspiring, pithy devotional in Gordon’s inimitable style, a suggested psalm portion to accompany it, and space to write down particular prayers.

Our episode sponsor Crown & Covenant will give away two free copies of Prayers of the Bible! Just be one of our first two listeners to send one of Gordon’s favorite prayers mentioned in the podcast along with your name and address to threeguystheologizing@gmail.com.

3GT Episode 59: Should Christians Tithe?

The parishioner asks a simple question. Does the New Testament still require a tithe from Christians? You would think a simple answer would follow. But not when the pastor and professor tangle!

From Melchizedek to Malachi, from mint leaves to mercy, from money in the plate to money given electronically, the guys wrestle with the Bible’s teaching on what and how to give. Not only do Kyle and Barry debate about the tithe with Kyle “Peck-ing” Barry with a last zinger, but then Aaron enters the fray because he wants to give with his phone. But one thing is for sure. They all agree the believer is to “ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts!”

Enjoy this latest offering from the 3GTers!

3GT Episode 58: Flag Football

None of the 3GTers are really built for football, but they try to tackle the current issue of football players kneeling or not for the flag and the national anthem. Well, maybe not tackle, but they play a mean game of flag football!

Aaron holds the ball looking for a receiver for a while by telling us how the whole tradition of playing the national anthem at sporting events began in the first place. He then passes to Kyle, who shares the surprising way the flag used to be honored before WWII and why it changed. The ball gets loose as the boys fumble around on the current NFL situation. They then scoop up the ball and run toward the goal line discussing when allegiance ends and worship begins. And just when it looks like they will score a touchdown and spike the ball…the ref throws a flag and time runs out.

Listen to an episode guaranteed to make everyone feel like a football in the hands of Tom Brady – a bit deflated!
