Divine Impassibility

In October Joe was preaching at a conference in Wellington, NZ with Dr. Jim Renihan. Jim is the Dean and Professor of Historical Theology at the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California. He is a theological beast and an author whom you need to be well acquainted with. Today, Jim talks with Joe about the possibility of a new seminary launching in Texas, the doctrine of divine Impassibility, and of course, Neil Young. Plus, Jimmy interrupts the interview from the other side of the world.Support this podcast at — Inquiries:

Apologetics with Dr. James White

While Joe was in New Zealand He interviewed Dr. James White. Before the interview starts Jimmy and Joe talk about the value of bow ties, and afterward they suggest that Dr. White is really a cyborg. During the interview Joe talks to James about apologetics, what James does and does not debate, and why James believes that the doctrine of Scripture is the most critical doctrine in maintaining orthodoxy. Plus, James pulls a “Jimmy” and plays with with phone during the interview.Support this podcast at — Inquiries:

Women's Ministry

We have a lot of ladies listening to the podcast and Joe and Jim wanted to address the issue of Women's Ministry. The guys didn't want to wing it on their own, so they brought in Joe's wife, Jen Thorn. Jen would say she is first a wife and mother, and then a writer and speaker who is called to encourage other women in the faith. You can find Jen writing at, Love God Greatly, and Club 31 Women. Today the trio talks through the current state of women's ministry and how pastors and churches can better serve the women in the congregation. The guys open the mail bag to talk about Jonathan Edwards and slavery. Plus, Joe gives a shout out, or maybe it's just a shout, to Kirk Cameron.
