Heidelcast For December 11, 2022: Sin, Salvation, Service: the Threefold Truth of Romans (1)

In this episode, Dr. Clark inaugurates a new Heidelcast series on Romans. He begins by discussing the context, audience, author, date, and purpose of the letter. Dr. Clark also answers questions from Zechariah about the Swedish Reformed, from Valt about Moses and the republication of the Covenant of Works, as well as a text message about how Germany could have produced both Luther and Nazism. The opening audio clip is Wendell Talley on the All Talk Podcast.

This episode of the Heidelcast is sponsored by Westminster Seminary California. John Calvin said that faith is the axis around which everything in the Christian life rotates. How true that is—and this year, Westminster Seminary California’s Annual Conference will be focusing on faith specifically, exploring various facets of doctrine and life as they touch upon the centrality of faith in the Christian life. Bringing these messages are Westminster’s own: Dr. Michael Horton, and Dr. W. Robert Godfrey, and Westminster President Joel Kim. Joining them are faculty Drs. Craig Troxel and Brad Bitner.
This conference is a unique opportunity to listen to these seasoned pastors and theologians share from God’s word to help us in this Christian pilgrimage. The conference will be livestreamed, but we recommend coming in person so you can take advantage of the intimate setting of the conference to meet the speakers and ask follow-up questions. “From Faith to Faith: The Power of of God for the Christian Life” is happening January 13-14 and registration is open now!

  1. In regards the question concerning Christians in Germany in the 30s-40s, Gene Edward Veith, of Patrick Henry College and Concordia University, published a book in the early ’90s called Modern Fascism; in it he argued that the German higher critics, and German liberal theology, helped pave the way for the ‘German Christian’ movement during the Nazi regime.

    It’s a short book and worth the time. It was prescient, warning of the post-modern and critical theories that were just then becoming regnant in the English departments in which he worked, and in which culture is seemingly awash now.

    Veith wrote a 30 year anniversary article for Tabletalk last year:
