On this solo episode, I have some fun with the bizarre side of Christianity, or the spiritual realm in general. We look at the worst prayer ever uttered in human history, the Pope apparently saying there is no hell, and a witch who believes only she sees “entities” that trouble every human being on earth. Oh, and I include tips on laying sod and cooking delicious Sante Fe Green Chile Stew. (Pardon the decrease in sound quality from the usual! I could not record it directly to the computer, so I had to pull it off the archives from kpft.org.)
Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.
