Our look into the 2016 presidential election continues with our second and final segment with Tom Hoefling of America’s Party. Last week we spoke mostly about Tom’s passion to defend the rights of the unborn. This week we learn more about America’s Party and the differences between it and the Constitution Party. We also chat about Christianity’s relationship to our American concept of freedom and the so-called faith of Donald Trump. Don’t worry, of course we had to ask, is a vote for Tom Hoefling really a vote for Hillary Clinton?
This week we are joined by Tom Hoefling as we continue our look into the 2016 presidential race. Mr. Hoefling is the America’s Party candidate and on the ballot in several key states. While the scope of our interview runs the gamut of different issues, it’s clear that this candidate’s passion is to defend the rights of the unborn. This is not merely a political issue in his mind. So, in this first segment we focus on the issue of abortion and the fight to uphold life. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this episode. Tom’s heart for this is inspirational and hopefully contagious.
It’s the battle of the podcasters! No, not really. But, this week we welcome to the podcast, Scott Oakland, the co-host of the LutheranCast. I greatly appreciate Scott’s love of the gospel but we seem to be worlds apart concerning this election season. While I am a staunch #neverTrump guy, Scott was actually an early supporter the Trump campaign. So listen in as we hash out some of our differences and even dip into a little bit of theology, briefly touching on the Lutheran view of the Two Kingdoms doctrine.
This week we are again joined by Constitution Party Presidential nominee Darrell Castle. This Week Mr. Castle answers questions that you, our listeners, sent in ahead of time. So listen in to the hear where he stands on Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, mandatory vaccinations, a possible Constitutional Convention, how Christian values can be enforced on non-believers and many other questions. If you are a #neverTrump voter like me, you won’t want to miss this episode!
For the first time ever, a presidential candidate appears on the Gospel Points podcast! Many Evangelicals find themselves searching for third party alternatives this election season as voting for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump seems unthinkable. This week we are joined by Darrell Castle, the Constitution Party candidate for President. In this first segment Mr. Castle and I discuss important issues such as abortion, gay marriage and the role theology plays in one’s political philosophy.
This week we will be airing the second segment of a panel discussion at the Community Strong Family Conference hosted by Rock County Christian School back in April. Gospel Points was the official sponsor of the discussion featuring three local pastors – Phil Allen (Daystar Christian Fellowship – South Beloit, IL), Marc Grindle (Roxbury Church of Christ – Janesville, WI) and Tim Johnson (Rock Valley Chapel – Beloit, WI). In this final segment the panel tackles two more questions, (1) Is spanking Biblical necessity? and (2) Are you concerned about Target’s new policy concerning transgender bathroom policy?
With the theology of Calvin and the thirst of Luther, this week we’re talking about the Reformed Pubcast (www.reformedpubcast.com), the wildly popular podcast hosted by Les Lanphere and Tanner Barfield. The podcast seeks to discuss reformed theology while also talking up their love for craft beers. Les Lanphere joins us once again to chat about how the podcast was started and how the Pub Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/reformedpub) grew into huge discussion group that takes up much of my newsfeed each day. Also, don’t forget about the documentary Les old us about last week. There’s still time to give your support! Check it out here – www.calvinistmovie.com.
Though many have found the doctrines of grace to be highly offensive, Charles Spurgeon suggested that Calvinism was only a mere nickname for the gospel. This week we’ll be talking about Calvinism with Les Lanphere of the Reformed Pubcast. Les will chat with us about wide range of topics regarding this issue, including his personal journey and will fill us in on his exciting new project, a documentary about Calvinism featuring such names as James R. White, Michael Horton, Tim Challies, and Joe Thorn. Learn more at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1832273783/calvinist-documentary-film
Back in April the Gospel Points Podcast sponsored a panel discussion at the Community Strong Family Conference hosted by Rock County Christian School. I was honored to moderate the discussion featuring three local pastors – Phil Allen (Daystar Christian Fellowship – South Beloit, IL), Marc Grindle (Roxbury Church of Christ - Janesville, WI) and Tim Johnson (Rock Valley Chapel – Beloit, WI). In this week’s segment the panel tackles two questions, (1) How can the family become an idol? and (2) How should a Christian family react when a member comes out of the closet announces same sex attraction?
