Scott is back! Barry found him a fan! And Kyle sounds like who? Though this episode starts off all over the place, the 3GTers finally hone in on their topic by stepping into the cage. For they take on what is often called Cage Stage Calvinism. They look their young opponents over by discussing the main doctrines cage stagers usually fight over, whe…
 
No, the 3GTers are not talking about protesting election results, face masks, or any other hot button issue that gets people all riled up these days. The protest of their concern is much older than these modern affairs. They are reflecting on the “protest” in the Protestant church and why it continues on. Without their fiery parishioner on hand, th…
 
Three Guys Theologizing welcomes to this episode David Whitla, Professor of Church History at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary.

The guys start off lamenting Scott’s absence, and wondering if he who says he never listens to 3GT will tune into this episode to see what Kyle and Barry say about him. Then they discuss a new meaning for the 3GT acronym that they heard. Then Barry gives an update on Oscar the lost (now found!) family dog. Finally, they get to the subject at hand! …
 
Three Guys Theologizing love it when listeners suggest topics! So when a follower of the podcast asked them to address a topic they also love, they were doubly joyed! That topic, and hence this episode, is on union with Christ. The guys begin by defining what union with Christ is. They stress the experiential, spiritual, and even mystical nature of…
 
As the parishioner points out, some may be making people aware of other topics this month. But October is Pastor Appreciation Month. So he explores the subject of gratitude for pastors with the local pastor and the professor pastor. Scott begins by asking the other two to share about influential pastors in their own lives that they appreciate. From…
 
One of the guys has a podcasting addiction, and it’s not the parishioner or the prof. The latter two discovered that the pastor has started a daily, brief news podcast for kids, and they want, well, the scoop on it! Turns out that Kyle’s wife is the one that encouraged this habit. Seeing a lack of clean, Christian audio news sources aimed at childr…
 
When it comes to Reformed theology, people have many misconceptions about what it actually teaches. On this episode of 3GT, the guys slay some of the mythological dragons that loom large around Calvinistic teaching. What kind of myths? Oh, things such as believing in the doctrine of election means Reformed Christians do not evangelize. Or that the …
 
The 3GTers are joined on this episode by Dr. Nathan Eshelman. Under California lockdowns, with fires raging all around him, Nathan bravely takes on a topic sure to bring even more challenges to him.

This episode begins with the (strange) discussion of just how delightful our parishioner is. But the guys quickly get back on track to the topic at hand, which is the importance of hospitality. The conversation is a pretty zesty one. Hospitality is quickly defined. Its Biblical importance is highlighted. Anecdotes of it are given. Distinctions are …
 
As a boy, our parishioner used to look up certain Bible passages in church and titter over them. You know, texts such as Deuteronomy 23:12-14, 1 Kings 14:10, or about anywhere in the Song of Solomon. Now, as a dad, he wonders how these texts are to be handled with children and the church. What are we to think about those places in Scripture that co…
 
Okay – 3GT took that title from a Baptist preacher. But it works, so on we go! In this episode, after they discuss how unique a parishioner they have on their hands, the guys look at the short, pithy apostolic admonitions in the epistles. Places such as Romans 12:9-21 or 1 Thessalonians 5:14-26, where these commands come at you in machine gun-like …
 
After the boys banter a bit, they get down to the subject at hand. The parishioner wants the preacher and preaching teacher to tell him what prophetic preaching is. They begin by telling what it is not. Prophetic preaching is not lecturing, teaching, or giving a running commentary of the text. Rather, it is preaching with a burden. Preaching with m…
 
In the middle of summer, with all its Covid craziness, the guys decide to relax a bit, let their hair down (at least two of them), and give listeners a peek behind the podcast curtain.

Faced with new executive orders from California Governor Newsom that churches must not assemble at all due to the Corona virus, he took a stand, made a statement, and preached this past Lord’s Day on “We Must Obey God Rather than Man” to a packed assembly at Grace Community Church. “What do you 3GTers think?” a…

Things start off mildly enough with a discussion about the latest social unrest, though the attorney reminds the others that our nation was f…
 
If you do not know where that question comes from, you may want to look at Proverbs 1:20-22. For wisdom is shouting in the streets to be heard, and too few are listening!

Ecclesiastes tells us that there is “a time to weep, and a time to laugh.” With all the dire news these days, certainly weeping is and should be taking place at this time.

On this newest episode of 3GT, the guys don’t want to see a P added to the mixed up LGBTQ alphabet. (Oh wait, there already is on the longer form, but it doesn’t mean polygamy!)

Clearly unbelievers hate the convicting nature of the law.…
 
The guys lately have noticed people with black crosses on their foreheads. So they thought it might be important to discuss Lent. What is it, exactly, and should the church observe it?

The 3 is back in 3GT! Yes, all the guys are back together again and ready to rumble. Their topic for this episode is that of idleness.

On occasion the guys like to revisit a topic from a previous episode or take reader’s questions about them.

If there is a need in the church in this depressed, pessimistic, therapeutic age, it is that of true joy.
